Why does the oven burner seem to be getting too much gas?


Possible problem with the gas regulator allowing too much gas through the system. On LP systems the regulator should be on the storage tank. The regulator on the range usually has a changeable cap and plunger. One direction is for LP and the other direction is NAT gas. In the LP position, the plunger actually holds the range regulator wide open letting the one on the storage tank do the job.

New kenmore gas range 790.7433 converted to lp and oven flames are way too high and produce lots of soot...how fix?


Do the rangetop burners act OK, Brenda? It's just the oven that's causing a problem?

Go back to the oven burner, right where you installed the new orifice. That orifice should fit inside an air mixture tube, probably stainless steel, leading to the burner itself. Right where the orifice fits into it will be some means of adjusting the air mixture - a sliding window of some sort, whether flat or round. You'll need to loosen the screw holding it in place (DO NOT remove the screw, only loosen it) and turn it so the air opening is larger. Right now you're getting too "rich" a mixture, too much propane & not enough air. Before you close it all up, try the oven again - see if your adjustment worked correctly. If not, adjust it again - this is a trial-and-error process, and it's different for every different altitude and climate.

At some setting, you'll get a nice blue flame with very little orange in it. If you live in a very high humidity area, you'll have much more orange color than people who live where it's very dry, but the flame should at least be MOSTLY blue, and should never be sooty.

Oven burner smokes


Right at the base of the burner is the air shutter and orifice. Tighten down the orifice with a good fitting wrench. then open the air shutter all the way for propane. Make sure the regulator is set for LP if this is LP and I am guessing it is. I happen to have a training video which shows how to: HERE
I have it on that page with them other interesting videos and I ain't no pc genous so you will have to find it on the page. sowwy. LOL

Can this gas range be converted to lp gas maytag performa


moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngTurn off the gas supply.
Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP.
On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,

Converting from natural gas to propane


Where do all orifices go on anything gas? Right there where the burner meets gas valve. The air shutter sits right in front of the orifice for proper air to gas ratio right.Go out and look at yer gas grill. Where the burners meet the gas valve ye shall find the orifice.

Converting Kenmore gas range to LP???


I just converted mine and the regulator plug was not the same as the one in the manual. It had a black plastic piece snapped into the cap that had to be turned over for LP. I unsnapped it and turned it over. I changed the nipples for the burners and they worked great. The oven orifice had to be turned all the way down (clockwise) ans the air damper opened.
When I did all this the oven still had a large yellow and blue flame. I raised the oven orifice up 2 turns and then turned it down all the way and the oven flame was perfect! The oven orifice is hard to turn so make sure that you turn it all the way down using a 1/2 inch wrench.
