Kenmore gas stove. Oven burns big flame which soots

I have a Kenmore gas range. When the oven's temperature is set, it lights a big yellow flame. Once the temperature is reached the flame dies out to normal. The problem is the flame produces soot and every thing that is baked in that oven has a black ting.

    Ever since my Frigidaire oven was new, it has a bright flame when the temp. is set. Black soot is on everything. I clean the oven (self cleaning) and the next time I use it the soot & flames are back. The smell makes our eyes burn. What should we do?



    Thanks,

    Dee

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?

There is a regulator behind the bottom drawer remove the drawer.look in the back you will see a silver box that the oven fuel rail is on just below the rail there is a brass fitting that needs to be turned clockwise till it stops it can be hard to turn some times but turn it till there is no clearance between the nut part of the valve and the silver box then you can start your oven and it should work fine you can also adjust it to get a little more flame if needed.

Whirpool gas range - propane gas not sure oven is working right


First, the flame should be blue and without much visible yellow. You need to give the gas tube a good cleaning to get out any soot buildup and any partial obstuctions that might be causing the problem. Since you started with a yellow flame and soot, you need to get the burner tubes clean to see if you have resolved the problem after adjusting the regulator and burner valve(s).

You might need to install a different regulator to match the pressure of your gas supply source, as regulators have a specific working range of inlet (supply gas pressure) that they can operate properly at to "regulate" the supply pressure to the stove's needed pressure.

Check your manual and the installation guide to verify what the gas inlet pressure requirements are and check with your gas supplier to see what they are providing you.

To your 2nd question, yes, the gas will cycle on and off when you are using the oven, since the thermostat will call for more heat when needed and shut off the gas/flame once the temperature you set the control at, has been reached. The cycling is a result of the oven trying to maintain the desired temperature for baking.

One reason that you can smell gas when the oven is being used, is because all gas ovens have a surface vent to allow excess heat to escape from the oven compartment, however you should not be smelling raw gas (actually you're smelling the "rotten egg" additive that's put in the gas) all the time, since when the oven is turned on, a small electric ignitor is heated up VERY HOT glowing bright orange inside the oven compartment. Once it's hot enough a sensor opens the gas valve and lets gas into the burner tube to be ignited instantly by the VERY HOT ignitor. It is rare to smell raw gas with this system, but sometimes you'll get a stronger "rotten egg" smell at different times due to the gas company and their system, etc.

As to the gas smell, you should NOT be smelling gas every time the oven cycles on when baking, as a normal ongoing occurrence. During the first few uses, it is normal to smell some gas, but this should go away after a couple of uses. If it doesn't, you should look to make sure the regulator and oven controls are PROPERLY configured and set - Since you've already fiddled with these, it's probably a good idea to have someone from your gas company (or a gas appliance tech) come out and do this. Improper settings can cause some serious problems.

Hope this helps!

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.

When i increase the temperature control the oven soots excessive


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.

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.

Gas oven


Inspect your flame tube to see if all the holes have a nice blue flame coming from them.
If the flame is not coming from all the holes or the flame is yellow or orange with some soot build up, then have a qualified technician service the unit immediately.
Do not use the oven until it has been inspected and certfied safe.

LOW FLAME


hi,

it sounds like something may be blocking the burner tube.
if you can, remove the burner tube and use a long brush or compressed air to clean it out. if you see black soot on it be careful it can make a HUGE mess, and soot is a sign something else may be wrong.
