GE XL44 Working fine but awful burnt propane smell

Hi
It's old about 14 years have replaced the igniters many times but this is mostly with the burners.As soon as you turn them on you get a very strong burnt propane smell-not raw propane like a leak would.Propane tank isn't low and the flames are solid blue not yellow or orange.Could it be the orfaces (sp) are worn and need to be replaced? They light as soon as you turn them on. Everything would appear to be aok with the cooking etc if it wasn't for this.Just started doing it-did not come on gradually
Thanks

Remove the burners and clean them with EASY OFF oven cleaner. The passages are likely plugged and this causes incomplete burning of the gas. If you do smell raw gas shut the gas to the stove off RIGHT AWAY and call the local gas supplier.

SOURCE: GE XL44 range

that means that the flame is lighting at the orifice. that's where the burner sits on, pull out the broiler drawer, and stand back, turnd on the oven and take a look at that part of the orifice. you can pull down the pilot a bit lower, it can not be touching the holes of the burner, not that close, and it needs to be lower then the burner, that will stop the problem.

SOURCE: Natural Gas to Propane for Ge xl44 Gas range

The kit is located at the rear of the range right near the gas valve, there are probably 5 spuds and an extender for the large burner, directions are with the range. For the bake and broil you will need to tighten the brass orifice nuts down as tight as possible, also the brass nut on the gas valve needs to be reversed
your local LP dealer should be able to do this for you if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself.

SOURCE: propane convection heater won't maintain full flame

Seems like the valve is not opening up fully or the adjustment is out of adjustment. Try adjusting the flame.

SOURCE: Burner flame on GE 5 BURNER cooktop (JGP637) is orange

You have trash, corrosion or a mis-aligned part.
Check and repair these and you will be fine.

Oven won't work


Yes. The ignitor must register 2.9 amps or more to operate correctly and ignite the gas. Replace the ignitor.
