New kenmore gas range 790.7433 converted to lp and oven flames are way too high and produce lots of fix?

Do the rangetop burners act OK, Brenda? It's just the oven that's causing a problem?

Go back to the oven burner, right where you installed the new orifice. That orifice should fit inside an air mixture tube, probably stainless steel, leading to the burner itself. Right where the orifice fits into it will be some means of adjusting the air mixture - a sliding window of some sort, whether flat or round. You'll need to loosen the screw holding it in place (DO NOT remove the screw, only loosen it) and turn it so the air opening is larger. Right now you're getting too "rich" a mixture, too much propane & not enough air. Before you close it all up, try the oven again - see if your adjustment worked correctly. If not, adjust it again - this is a trial-and-error process, and it's different for every different altitude and climate.

At some setting, you'll get a nice blue flame with very little orange in it. If you live in a very high humidity area, you'll have much more orange color than people who live where it's very dry, but the flame should at least be MOSTLY blue, and should never be sooty.

I have a hobart comercial convection oven. The oven will light 3 times but does not stay lit. there is no thermolcouple

The oven has a 3 try electronic spark control. It sounds like the flame sensor is not sensing the flame correctly and is locking out. I don't know if your model senses flame through the high voltage spark wire or if it has a separate flame sensor wire.

79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range: The propane converson seems to be done right, howe...

It sounds like during the conversion process a step or two may have been missed.

The gas orifice for the main oven burner is most likely to large (was not converted to LP), or the air shutter on the burner was not adjusted. I would not use the oven with the flames that way.

There should be instructions with the installation instructions on how to convert the oven, basically on most oven burners the orifice is screwed down (tightened) until the flame is the right size, then the air shutter on the burner is adjusted for a blue flame.

Let me know if you have questions

HI, To adjust the size of the flame, turn the orfice clockwise to make it smaller. you can also try and adjust the air shuttle on the burner.
Are you trying to change from natural to LP?

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.
