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.

What do i set the l & h caburator screws on a homelite sxl


They are always preset at the factory so whwn an owner has to adjust them again, it will never be the same as what they originally set them as.

Here's what to do.

Clockwise, turn both needles until snug, NOT super tight.

Now back both out 1 complete rotation, here is your starting point

Now the L, you adjust this needle while the unit is idling, If the chain is moving alot , you went too far, rotate counter clockwise in quarter turn increments.

The H needle you adjust while pressing the throttle trigger and holding it in. Same as the low you adjust in quarter turn increments.

My oven is set at 350 on bake but both bake and broil comes on and burns everything


Why is the oven temperature incorrect?

The oven temperature control is usually controlled by a thermostat that uses a capillary and liquid filled bulb. When the bulb's liquid gets heated up, it expands and puts pressure on a diaphragm which opens and closes a switch that controls the gas to the burner. Just set the dial to what you need the temperature to be. Over time, it is possible for your thermostat to lose its calibration. Sometimes, the thermostat sensing bulb comes loose from the holder. If it is out of place, the thermostat may be getting faulty readings. If this is the problem, re-aligning the bulb properly will take care of this problem.

Digital display models use a sensor to control temperature. If this is faulty, replace it. Other ovens use a mechanical system to control the temperature.

On many models, you can adjust your oven thermostat using a small screwdriver. The adjusting screw is located on the thermostat valve stem. Remove the knob and you'll see the screw underneath it. You want to turn the oven on and run it through at least two cycles while watching a calibrating thermometer in the oven for high and low temperatures. Adjust the screw as necessary to fine tune the temperature.

Some models don't have an adjustable thermostat, and you will have to replace the thermostat if you want to resolve the problem.
The oven sensor: works with the oven control board to regulate the oven temperature. If there is an oven temperature problem, this sensor might be defective. The sensor can be tested by using an ohm meter. As temperature rises, the resistance measurement also rises. The manufacturer of the oven sensor determines the correct resistance, Oven temperature problems can be caused by other things, but this is one of the common causes.
Beware on some models now most of these ovens they are electronic and they are integrated into the control itself
some different sensor ohm readings at room temp. approx 16 ohms at room temperature and at 350?F it is 29~33 ohms.

Ge oven will not preheat but broiler and stove top still works


Hello.

When an oven won't bake, it's because the bakeelement is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at thebottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This elementhas an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it maylast for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem.Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system tolocate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent buttoo high or too low, it could be one of several different things.
First checkto see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It couldbe lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This wouldcause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is notdislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibratedor defective. Electronic ovens with a digitaldisplay use a sensor to monitor oven temperature.
To solve temperature problemsfor these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-displaymodels, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See youroperator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital displayoften use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of theseunits, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to moreaccurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.
If, when you remove the knob,there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you canloosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knobisn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 35 to 45degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Thanks.

Fridgatare modle #FGG3054KFB I have a frigidaire range that has been converted to propane. When the oven is turned of it has a strong propane smell and there is alot of moistier inside. The flame is about...


It shouldn't be burning yellow and emitting soot at all;sounds like on of these possible causes-
(a)blocked burner airways(this can lead to yellow tipping and sooting on LPG powered appliances because insufficient air is getting through to the burner causing it;you can also get this effect on LPG barbecues say if dead insects or spiderwebs are in the burner pipes and airways after a period of storage),
(b)incorrect aeration being set when the burner was converted using LPG jets(too much gas and not enough air causing yellow flames/smells and sooting),
or (c) if you use propane cylinder gas a dicky or faulty regulator. I would get it looked at investigating all the possibilities I mention and taking action to correct this where necessary ie clearing the burner airways(if this is causing your problem), adjusting the aeration in the burners until you get a clear noiseless blue flame without any excessive yellow and sooting(but even after good adjustment you may find still get a very slight yellow tip without sooting at the top of the flame;this does happen with propane gas and there is a slight tendancy for this to happen more often with butane-butane tends to display very slight yellow tips on ignition increasing slightly as the burner warms up to full temperature) or if you use propane cylinder gas replacing the regulator if that is necessary.

Nose not getting red just a little


You need to adjust air/fuel mixture. At the back of the heater there is a plastic slotted set screw. That is the air mixture adjustment screw. Turn it in clockwise a 1/4 turn at a time until the nose cone gets to be about 90% reddish orange. The heater should also burn cleaner. Hope this helps.

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.

Stove to hot burns everything


This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...

Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.

Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Turn the oven off.

Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.

Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.

Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.

Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.

Test the oven temperature again.

Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.

Good Luck!

Oven bakes unevenly and burns food


When foods are burned, soggy, or baked unevenly, it generally means heat isn't being distributed evenly throughout the oven, its escaping out the door or the controls are out of adjustment. 1) Remove any aluminum foil from racks or the bottom of the oven. 2) Check the door gasket and, if necessary, have it replaced. 3) Be sure nothing is obstructing the vent. 4) Reposition the oven racks so baking pans aren't too close to the heat sources. 5) Check your baking pans. If they're dark, they may be burning your food. Reduce temperature by 25 degrees F when baking in dark metal or glass pans. 6) Recalibrate the controls.
