Are you trying to change from natural to LP?

Whirlpool model SF3020EKQ3 was converted to LP oven lights nice blue flame but flame is very small oven does not get hot enough


HI,
If your able to adjust the orifice hood to the oven, then turn it counterclockwise unit the burner is full and minimal yellow flickering is present. If you go too much, this can be deadly can cause carbon monoxide to admit into the kitchen during use. I have found adjusting while the burner is on is the easiest way to make sure it is correct, use caution....
I hope this helps

Need to adjust the burners the flames to high


Hello there:
Please follow these very easy steps and this should help you
Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Gas Ranges
  • Screwdriver Sets
  1. Step 1 Find the tube that feeds the burner. There's a burner air adjustment on it that mixes the air and gas.
  2. Step 2 Look to see what type of burner air adjustment you have: It will either be a barrel-shaped chamber or triangle-shaped with a cover plate.
  3. Step 3 Loosen the air-shutter screw on the barrel-shaped type. This screw is on the end of the barrel closest to the burner.
  4. Step 4 Open the shutter on the barrel-shaped type by turning it counterclockwise; close it by turning it clockwise. Opening it will add more air, which will make the flame higher; closing it will reduce the air in the mix and lower the flame.
  5. Step 5 Loosen the screw holding the plate on the triangle-shaped burner air adjustment. Don't remove the screw - it just needs to be loose enough to move the plate.
  6. Step 6 Move the plate so that the opening is either more open or more closed. More open will make the flame higher whereas more closed will lower the flame.
  7. Hope this is very helpful for you
  8. Best regards Michael

Flame to high


Hi, To lower the size of the flame, turn the orfice on top of the gas valve in the oven. You will need a 1/2" wrench and need to turn the orfice clockwise to lower the flame.
please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

As for holding the knobs that is common with this stove, you could check to see if flame is hitting sensor the burner hole that lines up the sensor may be dirty.

Oven burner flame is low


0000000.jpgOn top of that safety valve is a nut. Get a good fitting wrench. Turn on the oven and use that good fitting wrench on that nut. Turn it counterclockwise till the flame comes up about midways of the flame spreader. Don't get the flames too high. Midways of the spreader now. LOL

If you oven temp is off by +- 50 degrees, thermostat needed to be change. to check and adjust the oven thermostat usually we place the oven thermometer in the center of the oven, run the oven at 350 degrees for minimum 30 minutes and check the oven temperature, It should be +- 25 degrees, if it needed adjusting, there is the adjusting slot screw in the center of the thermostat stem, to adjusting it ( do not turn thermostat stem during adjusting ), turn adjusting screw counter clockwise to raise the the temp, clockwise to lower the temp, turn it a little at a time and wait 15-30 minutes before do the next adjustment until the temp match with the oven knob. To adjust the oven burner air and gas mixture, first turn the air shutter close, you will see yellow flame, then open the shutter until the yellow flame disappear and them open it a little more, now you are done. For the oven uneven cooking? you may have a bad oven burner tube, during operation some of the flame may be lift off, disappear or flame being uneven, you can check it with the kick panels off to see the flame, if these are the case, you needed to change the oven burner tube,

Burner flame adjustment


there are two considerations for burner height. 1) the gas adjustment screw on the knob and 2) the gas-air mixture to the burner. establish a flame and adjust the screw for a standing flame at the burner. adjust the gas-air ratio orifice so that the flame has no yellow tips.

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
