Check your oven for flame color; what you are describing could be deadly. It is possible that you have an air vent clogged or blocked causing the flame to burn yellow indicating incomplete combustion and possible source of carbon monoxide. This is very dangerous and I would strongly recommend you purchase a carbon monoxide detector. We have one on the main floor and one in our basement. 
A defective gas floor furnace in a home in a neighboring town 2 days ago put three children and two adults to sleep during the day and a 64 year-old man died of the fumes. The others are recovering but are all hospitalized. The family moved to Clay, WV from New Mexico only a week ago.

Why does black soot collects on top of my electric range?


The oven flame needs to be adjusted so more air will mix with the gas. This is unsafe since the amount of carbon monoxide is greater under the circumstances.

I noticed soot in my lp gas oven that had been clean. concerned when it started to ruin my food I decided to run the self cleaning cycle again. My whole house filled with toxic soot. My eyes were on fire...


Normally soot is from a range that hasn't been converted for the gas type, like natural or propane. It may be set up for natural when you're on propane or visa versa. Has this range ever worked properly without sooting?

My oven soots alot:


The adjustment you attempted was to make the regulator track the temperature setting on the knob.
The yellow flame is caused by poor combustion and could be producing carbon monoxide, an odorless, tasteless and very deadly gas.
It sounds like the path for air is blocked and causing the problem. 
For anyone, I recommend a carbon monoxide detector in the home if you have any gas appliances or even unused gas connections. They cost $30-$35 US but flowers for your funeral could run more.   A family near our town lost the father and the wife and 3 kids ended up in the hospital due to this only a few days ago. They had only moved into the house a week ago.

Magic Chef LP range produces soot whenever oven is on.


The vent (shutter) allowing air to mix with the gas has shut. Access the burner with the oven off, of course, and look for the shutter (a sliding 'door'). It usually has one screw holding it n place and an elongated slot to permit adjustment. It may also turn. Since your burner is producing soot, you need to open the shutter more. Loosen the screw and slide the shutter open more. Turn the oven on and look for a nice blue flame, and one that doesn't run too far over the burner. Keeping in mind that everything there will be hot when the burner is on, and also for a long time after it is off, you can use a long-bladed screwdriver to push the shutter back and forth to get the flame you are looking for. If the screw is loose, a gentle tap will be enough. When you are see that optimum blue flame and you are satisfied, let the oven cool off for an hour or so, and final tighten the screw--making sure you haven't moved the shutter much when tightening. If this doesn't work you have a bigger problem and need to call a service person. Your local gas company sometimes will direct you to a person.

Gas oven


The symptoms you describe point to a cracked or blown out burner. If you can see the flame on the burner the flames should be blue and even in size.
