There is usually a "shutter door" adjustment at the end of the burner to control the amount of air that is mixed with the gas. If you just did a conversion the air fuel mixture likely needs adjustment. You want a blue flame with faint yellow tips or optimal adjustment. Too little air causes soot and too much air is noisy and wastes fuel. Remove the burner (as for cleaning) and open the shutter door on it, replace, and retry until the correct burn is achieved. I don't have direct answer for the Kenmore. Did you try using the model number in Google or Ask? If you don't get a hit the call Sears Service and request a manual.

The pilot light must be lit and stay lit before you will have any propane coming into the oven. This is a safety feature.

Black is on the burners

the fuel to air mixture is set incorrectlty or your pressure at the ouitlet for the gas valve is too low.
you culd play around adjusting the first part of this but for the gas valve part you have to have a manaometer to check it out correctly. then it should be set at 10"wc. Good Luck

All gas stoves are set up for natural gas. Before using on propane, the oven and burners need to be converted for propane operation. Refer to the installation manual for conversion requirements for your particular stove.

Flames are extremely uneven and high


It's not intended to be used with LP gas, because LP gas requires a smaller orifice than natural gas. Call your propane supplier IMMEDIATELY...DO NOT USE THIS STOVE UNTIL IT IS CONVERTED TO LP GAS (if it's even possible)...this is extremely dangerous and you could hurt yourself if you continue to use LP gas on a stove that was designed to run on natural gas.
