Most likely, you have a bad thermostat. However, you may also have clogged ports on the gas burner, or an inadequate gas supply. First call the gas company to be certain you have adequate gas pressure to your stove. If it's good, have a repairperson check your stove's thermostat and burners.

What stove top setting achieves 375 degrees?

The answer is # 6 on a stove top range or roughly 35 degrees per number...The stove top heats in the temperatures between 200°F - 500°F. That would equal 300 degrees between 200°F and 500°F. Dividing that into 10 equal partitions.On my stove top it starts at LOW so that would be 200°F. It goes all the way up to HIGH, which would equal 500°F. Divided out that would be about 33.3 degrees per number. Round up to 35 degrees.Basically:Low = 200°F2 = 235°F3 = 270°F4 = 305°F5 = 340°F6 = 375°F8 = 445°F9 = 480°FHigh = 500°FAchieving 375°F will be a little less than 6, but more than 5... Round up... 6.This is worked to the numbers on my stove top. You will have to work it out to fit the numbers on your stove top. Just change my Conversion Chart above to fit your dial. Low to whatever number is the lowest on your dial.

Can you convert a gas stove to an electric stove?

It is possible to convert a gas stove to an electrical stove. Not only would you need to wire the stove for electricity but you would need to have a metal worker create metal bases for the electrical elements and also arrange for some insulation. It would be more expensive than simply purchasing an electric stove. Unless the gas stove has some special design that fits in with the decor, the project would not be worthwhile.

Can you run a stove on 800 watts?

You may be able to get away with powering a natural gas stove or LPG stove on this wattage because it doesn't use heavy amperage to pull the surface ignitor to 1200 degrees or to run the sparkers which are only lit momentarily, however on an electric stove you would need 1000 watts or 3000 watts if you're trying to use a power converter off a 12v battery or something of that nature. It's probably not a good idea. You need a good 220 outlet for an electric stove.
