I noticed soot in my lp gas oven that had been clean. concerned when it started to ruin my food I decided to run the self cleaning cycle again. My whole house filled with toxic soot. My eyes were on fire...


Normally soot is from a range that hasn't been converted for the gas type, like natural or propane. It may be set up for natural when you're on propane or visa versa. Has this range ever worked properly without sooting?

I have a K/A kgst307 gas stove that was bought new as a natural gas unit. After 3 years, I moved to a house that had propane. NO PROBLEM because an LP conversions kit came with the stove. Used the stove on...


Although the natural gas orifices for the stove top burners were replaceable with propane orifices, many ovens/broilers orifices are simply adjustable using a 1/2" open end wrench to convert from one gas to another. Some brands are adjustable and some have to be changed out. It depends on the make and model. Do you have your owner's manual? It contains detailed info on converting your unit. I included a link below to choose from the list to download your manual. You'll need your exact model # listed on your stove. Pull out the bottom drawer and look at the data plate for the model # and then find it on the list for the correct manual. Douglas

I just converted a Tappan stove to lp and cant get to light. It acts like no propane is getting to the burners and pilots.


HI, Things to check. Did you reverse the cap on the regulator? Adjust the oven orfice by turning it clockwise until it reached the bottom of the threads? Some mofels have a small shut off on the gas valve as well.
Change the burner orfices?
Make sure the gas shut off valve is turned on all the way?
Just a check list. I hope this helps you.

Flames are extremely uneven and high


okay, DO NOT USE THIS STOVE ON LP GAS.

It's not intended to be used with LP gas, because LP gas requires a smaller orifice than natural gas. Call your propane supplier IMMEDIATELY...DO NOT USE THIS STOVE UNTIL IT IS CONVERTED TO LP GAS (if it's even possible)...this is extremely dangerous and you could hurt yourself if you continue to use LP gas on a stove that was designed to run on natural gas.

Frigidaire convection free standing range


new ranges come set for natural gas. in the installation instuctions there should be instruction for converting the range to lp. some models require that the orafice for the burners be replaced as part of the coversion, if so the there should be a pack of them with the new range. others you just have to tighten the orafices that are all ready in the range. you installation guide will tell you which one you have to do

Tappan Gas stove


The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.

Are you using natural gas or propane (LP)? It sounds like you may need to change the orifice size on the gas lines going to each burner. If you are using LP and have the orifice set for Natural gas, the flames will burn higher and hotter, causing heavy soot. Under each burner, there should be a small nut with a hole in the center at the end of the gas line. The hole for Natural gas has a slightly larger diameter than one for LP. Your stove should have come with extra orifices as part of a conversion kit. Could this be the case? There's also another orifice in the main gas regulator in the back of the stove. Have you checked to see if the orifice for the regulator is set correctly? Does the oven burn hotter than usual with heavy soot, too? If you could please answer these questions first, I can give you better advice. Let me know...
