Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range

5 Answers

Flames in oven are WAY too high! Having trouble lowering them.

The flames in my new Hotpoint RGB745 LP Oven are extremely high shooting up the sides of the oven. We have changed the setting from Natural to LP and it goes up the sides for both settings. We have tried following the directions in the manual but it doesn't seem to be working. HELP!! Thanks.

    i have the same exact problem, there is no orifice that comes for the oven baker/broiler, the instructions just say tighten 2 1/2 turns and do not overtighten. i tried this and it also says to open the flame control valve to fully open. and my top burners work fine but my oven flame is way too high.. i tightened 2 and a half turns did not work and searching online someone said ti tighten more, i tried that and still nothing! any help would be gratly appreciated thanks..i also made sure the regulator switch is in on position and that the orifice in regulatopr and all burners are correctly installed, only thing i havent tried is closing the air regulator valve a bit but did not because the manual says to make sure it is fully open for lp gas..

    I have the exact thing going on with this model as well. I have installed 3 ovens prior in the last 10 years which had to be converted to LP from Nat gas, and never have experienced this. I'm wondering if it is a regulator defect? The top burners are exactly right, but after conversion the oven flame is shooting yelow/blue flames up and then shuts off. I of course immediately shut gads valve off. Anybody know if this can be fixed? I'm thinking it is a defect.

Did you also change all the orifice's for the oven and the top burners? to me that sounds like your problem. the orifice's for natural gas are larger then for propane. so make sure the conersion has been properly done. most times the LP orifices are somewhere on the back of the range. Good Luck

Did you change the orifice in the regulator? The orifice opening for LP is a different diameter than the opening for Natural Gas. If you've already attempted changing the settings from Natural to LP, you may want to double check the orifice under the regulator cap, or...you may have a regulator problem. You will need to turn the gas off prior to attempting this. The regulator will be located in the back of the oven somewhere near where the gas line connects to the stove. There is a gas orifice that needs to be turned over to change gas settings. "LP" should be present if it is set correctly. Let me know if this helps.

Brand NEW Fridgidaire(High End)model,my neighbor just bought ,is doing this same thing! Now,he couldn't wait for the LP Tech(days) ,to do the conversion. So being the "Macho guy he is,I belive he Overtightened the Orifice,WAY,beyond 2 1/2 turns down/snug!! All top burners:OK .I gotta check that regulator though,it was a NEW Range he replaced too! Then ,he had Top burner trouble! LP tech came out,NOTHING Sears came out(Kenmore)NOTHING!Same condition on top burners of other range.TOO much flame!!One ,would think it MUST be in the regulator,or??You have at least added some help for me,as it seems we all have the same condition:Oven Flames "Shooting up around Burner"!

Tighten the adjusting nut until it feels snug, then loosen to adjust flame

SOURCE: Flames in oven are WAY too high! Having trouble lowering them.

Hi! melisrus
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.
www.hotpoint.com
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.

Converted HotPoint RGA720 to LP, burners and oven work fine, all pilots flames are still too high?


I have this model too and have had to replace two thermocouples because the pilot is so high it frys them. We replaced the whole modulator last time and it still goes out so I have to relight The pilot is at the lowest setting, it's a GE/Hotpoint issue that was not recalled. I do like the hot 125 degree oven for drying sun dried tomatoes and keeping plates warm.

GE Range - oven flames too high after regulator replacement and self clean


You need a Gas tech/plumber there urgently!!!!
If the gas jets in your oven had not been changed to accomodate LP gas then the orifice on your existing jets are still to large in diameter. In other words your using Natural Gas jets ( lower pressure jets) for Lp which has a much higher pressure than Nat. gas, this can be extremely dangerous, & could cause major problems.
Again I strongly suggest you contact a Gas tech/Plumber & do not use your oven until it has beeen checked by a professional.Good luck

Lp flames to top of oven


You need to tighten down the orifice spud for the bake burner. Remove drawer in bottom of oven. Look for bottom of burner tube, where the shutter adjustment is. Right below it is the orifice spud. Usually a goldish color. Take 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten until it stops. Do-not overtighten! Try it now. If flames are still to high, tighten a little more. Repeat if needed.
