Re: LG gas oven
And you say you took the nut off the top of the regulator and flipped that piece over as to the burner tube you can get to it from the inside the oven remove the racks then should be a couple of screws there remove them then you will see a flame spreader there remove that and you will see a burner tube remove that and you will see the safety valve with the office and soap and water should clean up the soot

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.
If you only changed the gas regulator for use with LP (the regulator located at the connection of the gas service) then you still need to change the orifices for all burners, top and oven. Of course I assume this model can be converted for use with LP. Some models cannot. A new range that can be converted for LP typically includes the needed LP orifices. A card with the LP orifices is typically located at the gas regulator.
Some gas ranges cannot be converted. If your model can be converted it normally requires flipping over the regulator diaphragm and also changing orifices for all burners, surface and oven. Most modern new appliances come with the LP orifices located on a card attached to the regulator.
Is this new and recently converted to LP-Gas? Did you install it and convert it or did you have a professional do it? It sounds to me like the wrong size orifice for the oven may have been put in. Was the appliance regulator converted? When you flip the cap, it allows more pressure to the burners, but this affects all stovetop & oven burners, not just one burner. Some ovens require converting the oven thermostat too, but not sure if it applies to this brand. Check your owner's manual and make sure all the steps in the conversion were done. If you had a pro install and convert it, call them back to fix it. Douglas
the lower oven bake burner should also have an adjustable hood to turn down, 1/2 or 9/16 open end will do it, as long as flames look ok youre alright, but def find and turn down the bake adjusteryou might nned to remove the storage drawer to acess
