Dear Kgeibel,

The orifice is basically a small nut with a very small hole in it. This small hole lets all the gas into the grill. If it is blocked or has leakage in any way (dirt, cobwebs, spiders, etc.) it must be cleaned out. To access the orifice you must unscrew the gas valve from the burner. On models with an igniter, you must first remove the four screws holding the control panel on before you can unscrew the gas valve. Once you have access to the gas valve, remove the regulator hose. It's a good idea to use two wrenches to do this. Grasp the flat part of the gas valve with one wrench and hold it tightly. With the other wrench, remove the regulator hose. Then, loosen the flat lock nut located at the end of the valve next to the air shutter. Once loosened, you can unscrew the entire gas valve from the neck of the burner. (The air shutter and bug screen will also come off when you unscrew the gas valve.) With an adjustable wrench, unscrew the orifice from the gas valve and hold it up in the air to view any possible obstructions. Run a broom straw or some other small rod through the orifice to make sure it is clean. BE CAREFUL not to do anything to make the hole in the orifice bigger.

please rate this solution.Thank You Kgeibel

What would cause a gas smell around a safety valve

IF you believe there is a serious leak get out and call the fire department. If not you can use soapy water in a spray bottle to check for leaks. Note that some regulators have small releases of gas when the diaphragm moves and this is normal.

We just converted a brand new natural gas kenmore range to propane and followed the instructions to a tee doing it. The burners are fine and work great, no smell. When the oven is started it smells li

On the pressure regulator there is a small cap this turns or unscrews and inside there is a part that has to turned around to convert to propane. They are fairly easy to do. Access to the regulator is usually the hardest part. If this is not done the pressure to the burner will not be correct and you will not get completed combustion of the gas. This could cause Carbon Monoxide issues and soot build up.

There is a conversion in the regulator that must be done or the oven flame will not be correct. Usually it is just removing the regulator cap, turning the converter around and putting the cap back on. This may be your problem.

Open up the range top and check the piping connections right up to each burner. Use soapy water and a small brush to do this safely. Chances are you have a leak. J.

Southbend model : x436d need to connect to lpg bullet does not have a regulator on the range do i need 1 before connecting

off the bottle you will need a regulator and at the back of the stove you will need a yellow gas tap as an isolator remember bottle pressure can reach as high as 1200kpa on a hot day and you only need 2.75kpa for the range and your line size is 1/2'' and use gas tape on all fittings and leak test with soapy water

Smelling Gas and Soot in Oven

well its pretty normal u will smell gas when its preheating but if u think its not then u can pull the oven out and check the gas line connection is tight if it is then u can also get a spray bottle of soapy water and spray the whole line and if u see alot of bubbles then there is ur leak and for the soot problem u can use the clean cycle which all it does is reach a very high temp and pretty much burns everything like crumbs to a crisp and all u have to do is basically wipe it out with a damp cloth and maybe a mild soap and sponge good luck

Kenmore gas range 790

Look at the burner and se if all of the holes coming out of the burner have a flame.If not, Turn it off and remove burner lok for obstructions like burned food. ALso use  soapy water on  the gas line(s) leading from the oven control to the burner as well as the fittings . If you get bubbles you have a leak at that point.  Tighten fittings if that is the case.
