Question about Kitchen Ranges
When the fire is lit there are only flames on the right hand side, when it is turned up full there are flames on the left side but they are considerably smaller, are there any ideas as to what may be causing the problem? I have scoured the internet but have yet to find someone with a similar problem

Just bought a Kenmore and did this conversion myself. You do not change the oven nozzle (jets) but have to wrench it down with a 1/2" wrench as per instructions. After I did this the falme was high as you described. I wrenched it down further and adjusted the air shuttle and it was fine. The brioler is done the same. The wrench adjustment is tight so be aware.

SOURCE: The burners in the gas
Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Yellow flame and black soot is an indicator that the flame tube is being starved for oxygen. Where the orifice injects the fuel at the base of the flame tube you should find a movable air adjustment shutter that is usually held in position by 1 screw. This screw may have loosened and allowed the shutter to close off oxygen to the flame. Below is a link to a page that shows an oven burner tube...click to enlarge image pn1015233 and observe bottom end. Rotate shutter any direction until a nice blue flame appears but is not "blowing" off the burner tube. Tighten screw to retain position.

If you are using LP, even if you change the regulator settings from Natural Gas to LP Gas, the orifices all need to be changed. The Orifices should have come with the new unit, if not contact Hotpoint.
Make sure you order the instruruction manual and this is an Oven with Range Top, you will need orifices for all the burners on the range top.

If the burner pressure is adjustable(some are not) you can use a small adjustable wrench to turn the gas orfice to lower the gas pressure. The orfice is usually located in the broiler/storage comaprtment at the very bottom of the range. It is the brass piece that goes into the burner venturri and is where the gas comes out. If your turn it clockwise it will decrease pressure & counter clockwise will increase pressure. If the flames are coming into the burner compartment that is quite an increase in pressure!!! Make sure the the range did not have the gas regulator removed. If it was then that would explain why the oven burner pressure is so high.
