Why is it no matter which way I adjust the oven's spud orifice, the burner flame stays large, yellow and sooty even after adjusting the air shutter?


Possible problem with the gas regulator allowing too much gas through the system. On LP systems the regulator should be on the storage tank. The regulator on the range usually has a changeable cap and plunger. One direction is for LP and the other direction is NAT gas. In the LP position, the plunger actually holds the range regulator wide open letting the one on the storage tank do the job.

I see to have too much gas pressure after converting my Neptune dryer from natural gas to LP


you should not try to adjust the flame. LP burns more yellow that NG. The gas pressure automatically regulates the airflow based on the dynamic pressure that goes through the burner chamber. If your flame is roaring and pushing forward, everything is Okay, if it is a "Lazy" and falling flame, you have a blockage of the airflow - venting system

You need no regulator since you have one on the LP tank! You could have a bad LP regulator since you are not getting gas to the other burners!

No adjustments.  You will need the correct orifices.  Contact maytag to get the correct ones.  They should send them to you for free.

Switching from natural to lp gas


Hi, The gas jet is too large and the gas valve needs adapted for lp gas. Lp gas has more pressure so the jets are smaller. Any appliance parts store should have the kit needed to adapt the gas valve along with the jet. The valve pressure will also need to be adjusted using a cheap water column gage also available at the appliance parts store. Check with them on what the pressure needs to be in your area. If the regulator is part of the lp it should be set right. If it is part of the fryer, set up for natural gas, and there is no lp regulator, it will need to be adjusted and or replaced with an lp regulator. Gas companies are usually very helpful with such things because they are concerned about gas safety. Good luck.
