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.

If you adjust the toggle type mini lever to a lower pressure so that the flame is just under licking up through the bottom of the oven and then adjust the air mixture to eliminate all but about an inch of yellow flame it should get rid of the soot.
You want to be sure that the flame is not pulling away from the middle bar where the gas comes out ( a little pull away is ok) and that there is not too much yellow flame. Find the happy medium and you should be good to go.
You may have to adjust the lever and the air mixture a few times before you get it right.
To adjust the air mixture you will need to remove the cover plate at the bottom towards the back, then loosen (no need to remove it) the one phillips head screw holding the air mixture cover in place. adjust the air mixture by moving the cover left or right letting in more air or restricting the flow of air more.
BE CAREFUL, to determine if the mixture is right you will have to turn on the oven bruner and everything will be hot. Wear protective clothing and BE CAREFUL to not burn yourself.
You can find a manual for this model by searching google for "ge xl44 manual". It was the first return when I did the search.
Here is a link http://products.geappliances.com/ProdContent/Dispatcher?REQUEST=ITEMID&itemid=003678171 if they leave it, otherwise you will have to search for it yourself. They explain how to adjust the air mixture in this pdf on pages 35 - 38.

make sure the hood orifice is a #52. (orifice to bake burner)you can go to the local propane gas company and see if they have one they will sell you.

GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.
