Lowering a gas burner on Yom Tov


One may lower a gas flame on Yom Tov in order to cook on it, where it is so strong that it would burn food placed on it, and no appropriate flame is available.

Even if one does have the theoretical option of lighting another burner (from a gas pilot), one need not do so - it is fine to lower the existing flame.

One may not lower a flame on Yom Tov just to save gas, though.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 1:115)

Have a great day,
