Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Flames in oven are WAY too high! Having trouble lowering them.

The flames in my new Hotpoint RGB745 LP Oven are extremely high shooting up the sides of the oven. We have changed the setting from Natural to LP and it goes up the sides for both settings. We have tried following the directions in the manual but it doesn't seem to be working. HELP!! Thanks. Same problem. Old Magic Chef. Stove is fine and oven shoots flames up. Any idea for the old magic chef? thanks.

    My oven is a Kenmore and I'm experiencing exactly the same problem. The burners are working perfectly fine. It is the oven that is not working.

Hi! melisrus
If you are using LP, even if you change the regulator settings from Natural Gas to LP Gas, the orifices all need to be changed. The Orifices should have come with the new unit, if not contact Hotpoint.

Make sure you order the instruruction manual and this is an Oven with Range Top, you will need orifices for all the burners on the range top.

if it's glowing but not igniting the flame in less than 40 seconds you have a lazy ignitor,change it out.open the draw unser the oven door and on the left or right side of frame not the door you'll see a tag with the model and serial number,give your parts store the model number and they'll give you the correct ignitor

Lp flames to top of oven


You need to tighten down the orifice spud for the bake burner. Remove drawer in bottom of oven. Look for bottom of burner tube, where the shutter adjustment is. Right below it is the orifice spud. Usually a goldish color. Take 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten until it stops. Do-not overtighten! Try it now. If flames are still to high, tighten a little more. Repeat if needed.

Did you change the orifice in the regulator? The orifice opening for LP is a different diameter than the opening for Natural Gas. If you've already attempted changing the settings from Natural to LP, you may want to double check the orifice under the regulator cap, or...you may have a regulator problem. You will need to turn the gas off prior to attempting this. The regulator will be located in the back of the oven somewhere near where the gas line connects to the stove. There is a gas orifice that needs to be turned over to change gas settings. "LP" should be present if it is set correctly. Let me know if this helps.
