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.

Replaced gas valve on oven. can't seem to adjust flame. Baffle wide open. large yellow flames. How can I tell if this valve is for Nat. gas. I have prop.

Too much gas or to little air or both with orange flame.
Check to make sure all pipes and airways after regulator are clear.
If you are sure air mix is max than you need to check how much pressure is going in and coming out of gas valve there is typically a port on valve to do so. You need a manometer to do this. In a pinch you can make one check internet..
For propane you should be getting 9 to 11 inches water column depending on BTU of oven.
Typically natural gas controller/regulator is less 4 inches wc in which flame would be very small if it was set up for propane and you installed natural gas regulator.

I have a Sears gas range that doesn't burn right. Yellow flames leave the bottom of my pans black. Ther is no fuel/air mixture adjustment. I have changed the gas regulator and LP gas bottle and no change

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.

Hi there.
Your maxitrol regulator specification is correct for natural gas use, the pressusre setting may be in minimum (3"wc) that's why the fryer does not fire-up or it may also be clogged.
Check also if the spring is sitting properly on top of the plunger.

Converting it back to Natural Gas what I sdone to convert oven area

Usually the oven has an adjustable orifice. For natural gas you want to turn the brass orifice counter clockwise ( out ) to increase the gas flow. Start with a few turns and keep testing till flame is high enough. NO Yellow in the flame..... that is too much gas. The orifice takes a 1/2" wrench. Also make sure the appliance regulator is set for natural.

Natural gas orifice burners

Before you get too involved, check to see if the natural gas orifices are still with the range. Usually, when the conversion is done, the person who converts the range puts the original natural gas orifices into the holder which contained the LP ones, then replaces it. Look for an inch and a half long metal strip holding the four brass orifices held on by one screw very near the range gas regulator. (the regulator is the part the gas line connects to on the range) Also, look for the conversion instructions in the original installation and set up instructions, or attached to a sheet of paper on the back of the range. You will need to change the plunger in the regulator (Unscrew the cap, flip the plunger around, and replace) and turn the orifice spud on the bake and broiler burners three full turns counter-clockwise also. (using a 1/2 inch open end wrench, counting twelve 1/4 turns) Orifices will require a 7mm or 9/32 inch nut driver or socket to change. The orifices are different for the simmer, regular, and high output burners. (have a "I", "II" and "III" marked on them to help identify them, respectively.) The left two burners are both "regular output" burners, and use the same orifices.

Natural gas to propane

GE is one company which generally includes all necessary parts and instructions for conversion to LP with the range without having to order or purchase anything extra. Check the mini manual in the white envelope pasted to the back of the range for instructions. Generally, the LP orifices are in a metal holder near the gas regulator (right where the gas connects to the range). You will have to flip the plunger in the center of the regulator and turn down the collar (with a 1/2 inch open end wrench) on the oven burner and broil burner about 3 full turns. Air shutters are usually OK without any adjustments.
