Question about Kitchen Ranges
If this is new or you just got it used and put it in and noticed the problem I am guessing that it is ported for natural gas instead of LP or Propane. The majority of gas ranges are setup to use Natural gas when delivered unless specifically ordered for Propane. If you have had it for a while and it worked fine before then this might not be the problem something else has gone bad like a pressure regulator or a line got bent affecting pressure.
If it is ported for Natural gas and you want to use propane then most companies sell a conversion kit that will make it work right.

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

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.

Did it work OK in that location before the changes?
Sounds like you used Natural gas parts instead of LP.
Lp orifices have smaller holes than Nat.

This model Southbend range is "built to order" for the gas type.
Orifice alignment is critical on this model especially on propane, so make sure that the orifices are pointing directly down the burner venturi tube.
Also, the air shutters for the open top burners will probably have to be wide open.
If you are in an area with an elevation higher than 2000 feet above sea level, you will have to run a smaller orifice.
Those are nice ranges. Good luck!

I remember having a stove with an adjustable orifice in the oven. It looked like a double nut arrangement. If that is what you find, tightening them to each other shrinks the size. Should turn fairly easy, do not force. You may also find a pilot adjustment behind the oven control knob. Hope this helps.
