Calor gas. one large burner keeps sooting up with yellow flame and black soot. Others all ok with strong blue flames. Is there a cure?

It appears to me that the burner is no getting enough air.
The burner could have something blocking it. I've seen spider webs in types tubes. I'm not familiar with the cooker or the had pressure it should be set at. Where I live it would be a job for a licensed gas fitter. If its 2.75.kpa. Has that burner been fitted with a jet for 1.25 kpa?

Why does Oven soot up during use?

Are you on propane (LPG) or natural gas? I would guess that you are on propane, and that your oven has not been converted over to LPG correctly. The regulator needs to be set up for LPG, and the oven gas orifaces need to be tightened down, and the air valves opened up. If you don't know what these terms mean, then you need to contact a professional, because you don't want to monkey around with gas!

When installing orifices on my Kenmore 790.7423. How do I know what orifices go where? Doesn't say in the instructions. Please help

All the orifices should be the same - one at each rangetop valve, one or two at the oven burner.

If you have city gas (natural gas), you'll use one set of orifices. If you have LPG (propane) instead, you'll use the other set.

Oven is Electrically charged Or Uses LPG domestic Gas?.

GS460 is not the full model number for the range. The range needs both electrical power (120V AC) and gas. The electric power is used for the burner igniter and controlling the range thermostat.

The GS460LEK can be used with either NG or LPG. It came with the NG orifices installed at the factory; a conversion kit needs to be installed to use LPG. (The cap in the regulator also needs to be turned 180 degrees to read LP.) This should be done by a trained installer. Most Whirlpool ranges will have the conversion kit attached on the back of the range near the regulator. See the installation guide from Whirlpool for your model, try .
The installation guide for the GS460LEKQ0 is available at .

I hope this helps.

I noticed soot in my lp gas oven that had been clean. concerned when it started to ruin my food I decided to run the self cleaning cycle again. My whole house filled with toxic soot. My eyes were on fire...

Normally soot is from a range that hasn't been converted for the gas type, like natural or propane. It may be set up for natural when you're on propane or visa versa. Has this range ever worked properly without sooting?

Cannon Rhapsody LPG Gas open Fire sooting up of burners

well its my experience that ranges don't come lpg they are all made natural gas but you convert them to lpg after purchase now if the lpg conversion isn't done properly then they soot like crazy proper lpg converson is to change the spuds on the burners and to turn the orifice over in the pressure regulator do you still have your owners manuel if so consult it on converting gas range to lp then check to see if every thing was done right on the pressure regulater there is a square cap you take it off and there is a round part that on one side says lp on the other says ng this changes the pressure that the regulator as ng and lp operates at different pressures and the regulator has to be set for what you using like i said im not familiar with your brand or model but i do know the problem if the range did come ng then you need to make sure the conversion most ranges aren't lp because there is not that big a market for it read the plate on the back will tell you if it was made ng or lp serial plate on front may say also most of the time it is beside the bottom drawer on the range
