Large Flames from oven

We have a GE Model JGBP31WEH3WW and it was given to us. It is not very old, matter of fact it looks new. However, when I turn on the oven flames come up out of the heat vents from the bottom. Is this because they never converted it from natural to LP or do we need to replace a part.

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

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: changed from natural gas to propane when new oven flames up the side top burners ok

Just bought a Kenmore and did this conversion myself. You do not change the oven nozzle (jets) but have to wrench it down with a 1/2" wrench as per instructions. After I did this the falme was high as you described. I wrenched it down further and adjusted the air shuttle and it was fine. The brioler is done the same. The wrench adjustment is tight so be aware.

SOURCE: Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas

GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.

GE wall oven gas model # JGRS14 won't heat past 100 and I don't see any flames


if you can see the ignitor glowing on either the broiler or the lower area of the oven then the gas valve is bad and not opening anymore,sometimes the ignitors are the culprit as they are in series with the gas valve and if weak wont let the valve open,but both upper and lower burners not operating i would suspect a gas valve first

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

Ordered and received a SW Valve Service 270 using my GE oven's model number - PGB910SEM1SS. I received part no. WB24K10023. It fixed the problems I had - gas smell before the oven would light, and b


Hello Mike,
Firstly i have come up with a totally different part number for that model number i found the part number to be WB19K10043 i used a couple different part's lookup sites and all had the same part number so i do believe that part number ya have is incorrect .
Secondly it could be adjusted if it looks like the one in the picture below,to adjust it ya would turn the piece i circled in red in a clockwise direction. But look into getting the correct part number for that model number before trying to adjust it

Did you adjust the orifice on the saftey valve all the way down (turning it clockwise with a wrench)? The orifice is what the burner sits on top of.

Oven GE GAS Model JGSP44AEV3AA will not light


Once the ignitor starts to glow the oven should light within 20-30 seconds. If it doesn't then the ignitor is too weak and needs to be replaced. These are usually easy to replace by taking it loose and splicing in the new one. You can view a diagram, price, and part # at http://www3.sears.com/. You will need the entire model # from the sticker on the oven to look it up. On alot of models you can pull out the bottom drawer and disconnect the ignitor wiring and pull it out from inside the oven. Then just install the new one in the reverse order. This is the most common repair for ovens more than 3 yrs. old. Also, if the ignitor looks whitish instead of charcoal color this is a good indication that it needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.
