    Even thaw we don't have enough information the most possible cause of the problem is the orifice installed to the burners of your range are bigger than the appropriate. There is a possibility that the range is adjusted with orifice of Natural gas. Just check if it's included any other set of orifice in the range. And if yes and their holes are much smaller than the ones installed then this one for LPG gas. Just check all these options and if you notice anything else or you have any other information's you can comment back.

Here's a web blog that may help you:
http://applianceguru.com/forum1/21445.html
The tech on this site said the same thing:
Natural Gas to L.P conversion on stove. For the top burners, you had to replace orifices, right? For the oven, did you replace the gas orifice, or tighten the hood orifice until it stopped? If the hood orifice is not tightened enough, there may be too much gas, producing a yellow flame. The trick on tightening a brass hood orifice is to tighten it all the way, without breaking it! Adjust the air shutter to full open. If there is too much air for the correct amount of gas, you will have noisy, lifting blue flames. Adjust the air shutter a little.

Propane is a hydrocarbon. Yellow in a LPG flame will produce carbon (soot). The reason is: Too much gas, or too little air, or both. When converting appliances to propane, in general, the air shutter is opened fully or nearly so. (For Natural gas, 2/3 closed).

Our new home has a GE XL44 gas stove the top works fine but when I use the oven it smokes and sets off the smoke alarms.The stove is over 3 years old Any ideas before I have to call the repairman in?


A gas stove shouldn't smoke. Is is clean? There is some grease that has eluded your cleaning efforts of interior surface?

Here are some tips that may help you resolve this problem:

Check the broiler flame. If the broiler flame is not adjusted properly, you could be creating soot from the burner flame.

Position the items that your are broiling lower so that they do not splatter grease up onto the broiler baffle.

Use a broiler pan that will drain grease and drippings down below the top surface.

Broiling many items will naturally produce some smoke. If you have the oven door closed when broiling then the only place that the smoke can go is up and out of the oven vent. If you partially open the oven door, some of the smoke will come out of the door opening.

You may have residue on the top walls of the inner oven cavity. Do you have self-clean feature on your range to clean the oven? Follow all of the procedures in your owner's manual to properly clean the oven using the self-clean cycle. This may clear out any undetected residue that could be causing excessive smoke during broiling.

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok


Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

Flames in oven are WAY too high! Having trouble lowering them.


Hi! melisrus
If you are using LP, even if you change the regulator settings from Natural Gas to LP Gas, the orifices all need to be changed. The Orifices should have come with the new unit, if not contact Hotpoint.
www.hotpoint.com
Make sure you order the instruruction manual and this is an Oven with Range Top, you will need orifices for all the burners on the range top.

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.

Did you change the orifice in the regulator? The orifice opening for LP is a different diameter than the opening for Natural Gas. If you've already attempted changing the settings from Natural to LP, you may want to double check the orifice under the regulator cap, or...you may have a regulator problem. You will need to turn the gas off prior to attempting this. The regulator will be located in the back of the oven somewhere near where the gas line connects to the stove. There is a gas orifice that needs to be turned over to change gas settings. "LP" should be present if it is set correctly. Let me know if this helps.
