Hi. Usually when this occurs on a brand new unit the user is using a natural gas configured range on LPG. You may have to get a NG to LPG conversion kit to reconfigure the regulator. On most newer regulators it is a matter of unswcreing the plastic side cap and flipping the inner plunger over. The conversion process is in the installation instructions. Additionally the Bake and Broil burners for the oven will also need adjusted per instructions. There are usually orifices in a package in a NEW range for the conversion of the cook top burner control valves. Then the air gap on the side of each burner gas tube will need to be adjusted by losening the screw on the side of the burner gas tube and adjusting the airflow until you get a nice 2 color blue flame. Tighten the screws after you make the air adjustment.

If you do NOT have the manual please respond with a model number so I can try and find you one.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Burner won't light


Take the pot support and the burner cover off and clean all the slots out with a toothpick. Carbon builds up over time and the gas doesn't flow over the spark. Do not light until fully reassembled.

My new gas stove (propane) is releasing black soothe when lit. All the pots are covered in this black powdery like substance. Whats the problem and how can i fix it. It's really costing me a lot to clean...


There is usually a "shutter door" adjustment at the end of the burner to control the amount of air that is mixed with the gas. If you just did a conversion the air fuel mixture likely needs adjustment. You want a blue flame with faint yellow tips or optimal adjustment. Too little air causes soot and too much air is noisy and wastes fuel. Remove the burner (as for cleaning) and open the shutter door on it, replace, and retry until the correct burn is achieved. I don't have direct answer for the Kenmore. Did you try using the model number in Google or Ask? If you don't get a hit the call Sears Service and request a manual.

All gas stoves are set up for natural gas. Before using on propane, the oven and burners need to be converted for propane operation. Refer to the installation manual for conversion requirements for your particular stove.

GE Profile JGSP32GEV3BB slide in range - regulator went bad #WB19K5020


"GE makes garbage" that's what a lot of independent servicers says about brands they can't become authorized to work on because GE for instance has factory service. What makes the repairman think the regulator is bad? It is highly unlikely to be the case.
