Re: 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.

Re: lp flames to top of oven

I have a kenmore oven that is doing the same thing, it is LP, everything has been changed from natural gas to LP. The bottom flame in the oven is coming up through the bottom plate. I have adjusted the Oriface all the way down, and it makes no difference where it gets adjusted too the flame is still to high.

Brand new gas oven. Converted it to LP, the stove top burners work fine. The oven shoots 3 inch flames inside...?

You did not turn the brass adjustable orifice for the oven in or not in far enough. It is generally located right where the gas comes out of the safety valve, with a rectangular (about 3/4 x 3/4 air hole) by it about 4 inches before the burner. Usually, it takes a 1/2 inch open end wrench to turn in clockwise 3 full turns. (it's easier to do 12 one quarter turns or the wrench.)

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok

Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

Flames in oven are WAY too high! Having trouble lowering them.

Hi! melisrus
If you are using LP, even if you change the regulator settings from Natural Gas to LP Gas, the orifices all need to be changed. The Orifices should have come with the new unit, if not contact Hotpoint.
Make sure you order the instruruction manual and this is an Oven with Range Top, you will need orifices for all the burners on the range top.

Did you change the orifice in the regulator? The orifice opening for LP is a different diameter than the opening for Natural Gas. If you've already attempted changing the settings from Natural to LP, you may want to double check the orifice under the regulator cap, may have a regulator problem. You will need to turn the gas off prior to attempting this. The regulator will be located in the back of the oven somewhere near where the gas line connects to the stove. There is a gas orifice that needs to be turned over to change gas settings. "LP" should be present if it is set correctly. Let me know if this helps.

Changed from natural gas to propane when new oven flames up the side top burners ok

Just bought a Kenmore and did this conversion myself. You do not change the oven nozzle (jets) but have to wrench it down with a 1/2" wrench as per instructions. After I did this the falme was high as you described. I wrenched it down further and adjusted the air shuttle and it was fine. The brioler is done the same. The wrench adjustment is tight so be aware.

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. back
