Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a whirlpool super capacity465 range that is propane. I have had it for around five years. When i turn the cooktop on, no matter what burner, one or all, i have an orange flame instead of a blue flame. It sounds like its a mixture problem with air and gas. It used to be once in a while, now its orange all the time. If its a mixture problem, can i adjust it? is it easy to reach? Any help would be great.
It can be a mixture problem or low pressure from the regulator
gas repairs /adjustments in not in the DIY domain as it is extremely dangerous
call a gas fitter to properly diagnose the problem and have it done safely

SOURCE: burner flame height adjustment
All ignitors will always arc whenever one of them does.
I haven't worked with propane systems much, but it seems you may need the propane pressure regulator adjusted.
If the problem is only with the power burner, I would ensure that particular orifice was actually changed. The hole in a propane orifice is smaller than for natural gas.

SOURCE: Propane gas flame too high
if it set up for propane or natural gas need to make sure if for propane you need to change the orifice in the cook top, it is shipped for natural gas call the store and they can order the kit

In most cases the orifices can be removed and reversed to convert from lp to natural gas. Sometimes you will need a conversion kit and you will need to look this up by model number. 465 is the oven capacity not the model number. You can locate the model number by pulling the drawer out and looking behind it. Please let me know the model and I can let you know what kit you need. Also I should let you know that your gas company is the most qualified to convert your range, and this conversion should not be attempted by anyone who is not qualified. If this conversion is not completed properly you could be risking your life and the lives of everyone in your home, so make sure you know what you are doing!! Or get a qualified person. Good luck and please be careful making any changes to your gas appliances. Please dont forget to rate me also.

Hi, If you have the same problem with your stove , furnace and water heater, Then you look for things in common that would cause the problem. Any change in the flames is an indication of a change in the fuel/air mix. The item that would be common to all would be the pressure diaphragm. This is not something a customer should work on without a through knowledge of how they work. I think you would be well advised to have a service call. Good Luck!
