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.

Flame on main hob of range master 110 is yellow and smelly also black sooty deposit left on jets


Ream out all the orifices and air venturi holes on the burner, adjust the air-ahutter, the air-shutter is usually nearer the valve/knob than to the burner. Yellow flame is an imbalance of fuel to oxygen and is creating Carbon Monoxide and not burning cleanly... this is the same problem that can make a furnace deadly. Blue flame=neutral flame.

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.

I have converted my new frigidaire gas range to propane with the proper kit and all works well except the oven burner. The flame comes into the oven through the baffle holes about to the level of the...


What you do is tighten down the spud on the oven safety valve. themobilian_221.jpg
Get a good wrench and in the case of propane or LP you tighten down clockwise on that spud. Then open the air shutter all the way.

THE FLAME IS YELLOW AND PUT SUIT ON MY POTS HOW DO I CORRECT


The spuds need adjustment on the top burner gas valves. The oven safety valve needs adjustment too. Get a good fitting wrench and tighten down the spuds till the yellow goes away. Adjust the air shutters as needed.

Can this gas range be converted to lp gas maytag performa


moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngTurn off the gas supply.
Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP.
On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,

Large yellow flames after the oven is on and getting up temp


The needle maybe damaged or missing inside of the hood, unscrew the hood and remove it, look at the needle and make sure it is intact, put a little liquid soap into the hood threads and screw it back on until it bottoms out, it will be much easier to feel it bottoming out if it has lube on it, if this does not work, call them and have them send you a LP specific hood rather than the adjustable type.

King kooker will not burn a blue flame, only a big yellow sooty


You may need to resize the orifice, sounds to me like it is too big. If you have an adjustable orifice try tightening it down a quarter turn at a time till that flame turn pretty. Leave that shutter wide open till you start getting a blue flame. Make sure you have no cob webs blocking the orifice.Blow out and remove all rust from the burner.

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.

Converting Kenmore gas range to LP???


I just converted mine and the regulator plug was not the same as the one in the manual. It had a black plastic piece snapped into the cap that had to be turned over for LP. I unsnapped it and turned it over. I changed the nipples for the burners and they worked great. The oven orifice had to be turned all the way down (clockwise) ans the air damper opened.
When I did all this the oven still had a large yellow and blue flame. I raised the oven orifice up 2 turns and then turned it down all the way and the oven flame was perfect! The oven orifice is hard to turn so make sure that you turn it all the way down using a 1/2 inch wrench.
