The instructions said to screw down the valve at the back of the oven. We turned the valve down until it seemed to be seated, but the problem still persisted. So, against all reason, we hunkered down and put some muscle on the wrench ... ah, no cheater pipe, though. The valve turned slightly more than another full twist. That solved the problem.

I am a bit put out that someone at our house misplaced or lost the manual (if it's misplaced, is that lost?). But I am full-fledged pissed off that we have to pay to get support and that there is no online manual, or we have to write an email and then wait a day for a response. In the greed for ever greater exploitation of the consumer, businesses have sold their manuals to "manual.com" and the defenseless consumer must pay to join, pay for the manual, and ... O Lord, what other insults and invisible costs lay in wait for us ... and us so innocent!

However, that being said, I do appreciate your response this AM.

How do I adjust the flame in my gas oven


You have to be careful when adjusting the flame because you can cause carbon monoxide issues. There are two adjustments. the orifice hood and the air shutter. the orifice hood when turned will adjust the flame amount and the air shutter will adjust the burning of the gas. the hood will be on the line feeding the burner usually on them safety valve and should be a 1/2 inch nut. The air shutter is the door like opening on the burner tube itself. Your flame should be a nice blue cone without any yellow and should not blow and walk off the burner.

Hi Nancy
I have to ask you a couple of questions. Is the range set up for LP or Natural gas? Blow-tourch sounds are normally caused by to much air going into the burner. If you can look at the burner safely the flames should burn just out of the burner. If the flames are way off the burner the air adjustment is way off or you range is set for the wrong gas. Are your top burners OK?

It sounds like during the conversion process a step or two may have been missed.

The gas orifice for the main oven burner is most likely to large (was not converted to LP), or the air shutter on the burner was not adjusted. I would not use the oven with the flames that way.

There should be instructions with the installation instructions on how to convert the oven, basically on most oven burners the orifice is screwed down (tightened) until the flame is the right size, then the air shutter on the burner is adjusted for a blue flame.

Let me know if you have questions

Kenmore twin burner.. orange flames


A <i>temporary</i> orange flame from your gas stove can also occur at peak usage times. An increase in local demand can cause a decrease in pressure in the natural gas line. If all of your gas appliances are in combustion simultaneously, this may also cause a drop in pressure, especially in older houses. If the problem persists, it is likely a dirty/clogged burner or the stove needs servicing. In general, an orange flame (on a gas combustion appliance) means incomplete combustion and carbon monoxide production.

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok


Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

What would cause incomplete combustion on burners and oven?


Look at oven burners while  they are lit. Is the flame coming from all of the holes. If not, see if the piolet or glow coil of ignitor is close enough to that side to make them light.Also make sure holes are not dirty (opened).The flame should be blue with just the tip red . If not adjust the air door to get more air and less gas. Their is also a gas ajustment on the oven gas valve on most. If the flame is jumping out of the hole,too much gas is coming through and you need to adjust the screw to get less gas flow. I hope I understood correctly and this is information that you need.

Kenmore gas range


You need to turn the orifice on the safety valve down (clockwise) and this will make the flame smaller. The orifice is what the burner for the oven sits on at the bottom. The valve is # 214 on this diagram. http://www3.sears.com/imaging/ImagePageJava.shtml?productTypeID=0124111&brandID=0582&modelDesc=GAS%20RANGE&modelNumber=3627331890&documentID=10033508&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PM&titleType=BURNER%20SECTION&titleID=00001&. Hope this helps.

Kenmore Gas Range Oven not Working Properly


greg, sounds like your needle valve is not seated. Remove the bottom drawer. Look back to the base of the burner where the shutter air adjustment is. Right under there is the valve which should have a 1/2 inch or 7/16 nut. (I Forgot what size). Turn this nut clockwise until the flame is adjusted to the correct size, should be a nice blue flame. The nut maybe hard to turn because you are seating the needle. Catriver..post back
