Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range
Hi: I called the GE toll free number to ask how to get an LP gas orifice for and how to change the orifice for our ge xl44 oven, since we had to change the top burners from natural gas to LP, and since the LP orifices were supplied on the top, but no oven orifice. The customer rep told me that there were no orifices for the xl44 range's oven and that you only need to adjust the toggle type mini lever at the top of the back of the range...LOL!! It is not correcting the problem - unless we like to cook at less than 150 degrees. Can you help? I still get soot at any temperature above the 100 ro 150 degree range, and that is not only ridiculously slow, it's downright unsafe!!! Thx
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.
