Question about Southbend 436D-2GR Gas Kitchen Range
We have adjusted the air ways to increase the air to the burner but still the burner produces a yellow flame. What can we do to improve the flame of said range? We have propane gas fed to the range.
This model Southbend range is "built to order" for the gas type.
Orifice alignment is critical on this model especially on propane, so make sure that the orifices are pointing directly down the burner venturi tube.
Also, the air shutters for the open top burners will probably have to be wide open.
If you are in an area with an elevation higher than 2000 feet above sea level, you will have to run a smaller orifice.
Those are nice ranges. Good luck!

Hello. Please advise if your unit is supposed to run on propane, at the bottom of the oven door is a smaller panel, depending on age, it either lifts slightly, and then folds down, or clearly has screws on the front. Your Model/rating plate is behind this, either on the back of the panel, a tag screwed to the frame, or on the bottom ledge of this area. It should state what gas the unit is meant for, propane or natural. If it was not converted to run on propane, or made to run on propane, this is your problem. If it was built/converted for propane I would suggest you contact your propane supplier, or a restaurant service company to look at it, it would require a few specialized tools, pressure testing, orifice size req., and burner BTU. to go much further than cleaning the dust out of the burner, and cleaning the orifice.
Hope that helps, and thank you.
