Re: calor gas and cookers
Hi you will need to check the pressure on the reg and it sound s like the burner neededs cleaning the air ports a blocked but if it is sooting get agas fitter to look at this problem don't use the oven untill this fixed .

It appears to me that the burner is no getting enough air.
The burner could have something blocking it. I've seen spider webs in types tubes. I'm not familiar with the cooker or the had pressure it should be set at. Where I live it would be a job for a licensed gas fitter. If its 2.75.kpa. Has that burner been fitted with a jet for 1.25 kpa?
Are you on propane (LPG) or natural gas? I would guess that you are on propane, and that your oven has not been converted over to LPG correctly. The regulator needs to be set up for LPG, and the oven gas orifaces need to be tightened down, and the air valves opened up. If you don't know what these terms mean, then you need to contact a professional, because you don't want to monkey around with gas!
THAT IS VERY COMMON,YOU HAVE TO EITHER CHANGE THE ORFFICE ON THE OVEN AS WELL OR ADJUSTED,TURN IT DOWN CLOCK WISE TO REDUCE THE GAS FLOW,THEN OPEN THE AIR FLOW WINDOW ALL THE WAY,ADJUST 1/2 A TURN AT THE TIME .....AND PRESTO
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?
Most ranges are easy to convert from propane to gas or vice versa. If there is a gas regulator installed on the back gas inlet, you could see if it is running 3-6" WC or 10-12" WC, The latter is for propane. If no regulator is present the orifice sizes will need to be checked. Propane has a higher caloric value than natural gas so the orifices are smaller. One way to see would be to install the oven. If the orifices are for propane and you are using natural gas there will be too little flame. I would estimate a conversion would cost no more than $250.00 to $300.00 depending on where you are. I would hire a professional to verify. I know it is expensive but the technician will be able to check your older oven (1985) for potentially dangerous gas leaks etc while he is there.
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
theres no danger.its the residue from the gas.if using propane,it burns very dirty and leaves soot.if natural gas its the same but not as bad.you can simply just wipe them down with water but use an old rag because the soot is very dirty.if using an electric oven/burner the discoloration of the element is from the heat and is normal.also if the oven is gas the soot will eventually clog the holes/orfices in the burner and it will cause some issues.hopes this helps--let me know.
