This is a definate sign of improper gas/air mixture. The flame needs to be even and blue.
Make sure the orifice is clean. Usually the burner (oven) will have a "Door" or "Shutter" type adjustment where you can turn it and add or choke off air. This is the primary air supply. The secondary air supply is usually supplied by louvers or vents close to the burner area.

My crosley gas stove oven has been converted to propane. My oven is now coated with a black soot inside. How can i fix this


Adjust the air mixture on the oven burner. This is a metal part where the brass orifice is mounted on the burner valve. You loosten the screw on the side of it enough to be able to slide it back and forth. Get a flame going and move the barrel until the tips of the flame in the burner is completely blue...no part of the flame should be orange. Once that is done tighten the screw . automotive brake fluid is an excellent soot cleaner. It smells bad so use it with a lot of ventilation.

Flame burning too orange


You must get more air to water heater, and check venting .... immediate CO poison danger.
Call qualified plumber immediately.... because deadly carbon monoxide is not being vented properly.

Help flames front of fryer


Hi there.
Try to check and clean if needed the fire tubes, soot may have build up inside blocking the flame path. Soot build up on fire tubes and burners are caused primarily by low gas pressure, assuming that the orifice size are correct with respect to the type of gas used.
Regards.

I got one of those. I dont think there is an air adjustment. Let it burn awhile. It should glow somewhat red after some use. As long as its not creating black soot its fine.

Gas oven that cooks unevenly


clean your orifaces.

Also make sure that it's the correct stove for your gas type. If you're using a NG stove on Propane, you're wrong. It's making a lot of soot, and could potentially blow up your house. Stop using it until you're sure.
