That's right. Yours seems different.

what you showeed in your picture is not something I ever saw in my stove, until the ceramics were worn out.
If you have physically checked the nozzles and regulator I'd just try a new burner bowl and if that does not work replace the stove, it works great when not functioning properly.

Perhaps get back to Mr Li and propose to return yours so he can check it out provided he sends you a new one? Ultimately the price of the stove is not a major issue in the larger scheme of things but when it's only 6 months old (and not a 1000 roasts in 6 months) it should not break down already.

If I make big swings in gas flow I get brief flames above the disk that dissipate in 1-2 seconds. But regular flames above the disk aren't normal for me after +5 years on the same stove.

So my issue is resolved. It wasn't the regulator, fuel level, ceramic or bowl. It was the jets - they looked clean, but after removing them and blowing them out from the other side all is back to normal now. Pfew!

Any pictures to show the problem area?

Here's some pictures...on the gas nozzle, you need to inspect and clean the very tiny hole through the center. In my case I couldn't see anything but after cleaning and putting things back together it worked as it should, no more dancing flames. Pfew!

Thanks for sharing this. Odd that they clogged after so little use but glad you are back in business!

Ya, thanks, and the blockage must have been VERY small - I couldn't see it (the hole is pretty small), but once I removed the jets and reinstalled them the problem went away. I don't know - I just know that its back to normal now and all is well :mrgreen:
