SOURCE: Problem with conversion of used Whirlpool Range from NAT to LP

Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and adjust the orifice on top of the oven gas valve.
Tighten it down until the flame is normal. Blue with white tips.

SOURCE: Gas range burner flame too high and too yellow.

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.

SOURCE: the southbend 436d range gives a yellow flame at the burners

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 have an atwood g6a-7e water heater. The thermal fuse is bad. i need to know what temp and coltage the thermal fuse for this heater is. The numbers on the fuse do not mach any thing on the web.


ANy RV dealer should stock that item . You can temporarily by-pass it for use but be aware you have no safety should a flame-up happen due to spider webs etc getting in to burner tube.

When I try to light the pilot, the flame light at the small hole on the outside on the pilot burner


You have a plugged pilot orifice. That small hole is basically an air intake for pilot when working properly, and when it gets a spider web or something in it, the pilot flame will burn rich (orange/yellow). When pilot orifice is plugged, that"s the next closest place for propane to escape, thus, flame . You need to either blow compressed air in to pilot tube end where flame is normally at, and hope it cleans debris out, or use a 3/8 and 5/16 wrench and disconnect pilot tube from end and remove orifice in pilot assy, and make sure small pinhole is cleared in center of orifice. Be careful when removing tube, as it is aluminum and can crack very easily, especially if older. The best thing to do would be to stop at RV store and get a new pilot tube and thermocouple assy, and install new. Not very expensive, and troubles should be over for years to come with regular servicing. New assy, comes with new orifice etc.

You are correct, there should be no flame after it shuts off. Pull the + wire off at contacts as well and see if flame remains, if it does, the gas valve is faulty (leaking by) and should be replaced.

ON MY ATWOOD WATERHEATER IT LIGHTS BUT PRODUCES A LOT OF SOOT AND DOES NOT SEEM TO FIRE UP LIKE IT SHOULD


You need to start by cleaning burner tube and pilot intake , sounds like spiders have probably spun a web in there. If flame is yellowish, it's not getting enough air. You can buy a barbecue burner brush, long and flexible, and run it through burner tube to clean out web, and if pilot is yellow as well, there is a small hole in side of fitting where it attaches up near burner that needs to be cleaned out with paper clip or even better, compressed air. After cleaning burner, adjust air shutter to get nice blue flame, with just a hint of yellow at tip. The idea there is to get blue flame, but not a roaring flame that is jumping off the burner. A spider web in there will usually allow propane through, but restricts air mixture, thus causing yellow flame (rich mixture) and soot to build up.

On an atwood water heater, I have a small yellow flame at the main burner orifice, but nothing comes through the burner tube. The tube is clean and so is the orifice. The gas valve is new.


You need to have a manometer (pressure test) done on your system. If all that is new and clean, as stated, then you either have low pressure or a faulty/improper, gas control.How's the flames look on stove burners?

Water not reaching proper tempreture before cutting out . it is only luke warm


What setting do you have the temp dial set at? The biggest problem I find on RV water heaters because they sit unused for long periods of time, are spider webs in the burner or dirt dauber nests restricting burners and not allowing it to fire properly, causing intermittent flame or flame outage.

Simmer is to hot


I am hesitant about answering your question because if the flame is adjusted incorrectly it could be dangerous.
Remove the knob and look inside the stem of the gas valve. You will see a very small adjustment screw. This is where you adjust the flame for the burner.
What I usually do is light the burner and turn it to the lowest setting. Hold the stem in this position and turn the screw. They are usuall kind of stiff to turn.
You want to adjust the flame so that it just comes to the top of the burner cap at the low setting.
This is the important part!!!
When you have got the flame adjusted, put the knob on and turn the flame to high. Quickly turn it from high to low, if the flame goes out, adjust it higher. Repeat this test until you can turn it from high to low quickly and it stay lit.
Also important to remember. When turning the screw, a little turn goes a long way.
Post back if you have any questions.
