Flame way too high and yellow-Frigidaire Model #FGF328GM

We just installed a new fridigaire free standing gas range this past weekend, when ''testing'', the burner flames are very high and ''poof'' when starting (almost dangerous with the high intensity burner!), inside the oven the flames would come out of the vents about 5'' and show no blue at all;   the flames are whitish-yellow; we had attempted to adjust the valve for this and still does not change the color at all.   we had just bought the home about 1 year ago, the propane tank is not new, so we had imagined that there wasnt an issue of it needed to be purged....

any input would be greatly appreciated!

oh...also, the stove which this one had replaced was (much) older and had significantly less btu's than the new stove- there was hardly a flame at all- however, that flame too seemed somewhat more yellow than it should have.  could it be a propane issue?

Call an approved frigidaire gas technician as it is possible that the jets in use are not for the propane gas
they are probably natural gas jets which have a larger jet size
the air shrouds around the jets have to also be adjusted to get the blue flame
you may be able to have it checked out under warranty as it is new
if you touch it your self , the warranty will be void

SOURCE: changed from natural gas to propane when new oven flames up the side top burners ok

Just bought a Kenmore and did this conversion myself. You do not change the oven nozzle (jets) but have to wrench it down with a 1/2" wrench as per instructions. After I did this the falme was high as you described. I wrenched it down further and adjusted the air shuttle and it was fine. The brioler is done the same. The wrench adjustment is tight so be aware.

SOURCE: new gas range converted to propane

I think it sounds like one of two problems either the wrong orifaces were installed in the gas valves for the conversion or the pressure on the output side of the gas valve was not set correctly.

SOURCE: oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok

Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

SOURCE: Propane gas burner now has red flame instead of blue

Hi, If you have the same problem with your stove , furnace and water heater, Then you look for things in common that would cause the problem. Any change in the flames is an indication of a change in the fuel/air mix. The item that would be common to all would be the pressure diaphragm. This is not something a customer should work on without a through knowledge of how they work. I think you would be well advised to have a service call. Good Luck!

SOURCE: viking range - gas flame on one burner does not change

It sounds like the repair man was correct. The only variable is the valve, if the rest of the burners are fine then it will be the valve

Frigidaire convection free standing range


new ranges come set for natural gas. in the installation instuctions there should be instruction for converting the range to lp. some models require that the orafice for the burners be replaced as part of the coversion, if so the there should be a pack of them with the new range. others you just have to tighten the orafices that are all ready in the range. you installation guide will tell you which one you have to do
