The flame is 'yellow tipping'. This means there is incomplete combustion and will leave black soot on everything. Did you recently start using propane? If so the stove will need to be converted to propane use, or the incoming gas pressure is too high. You may need a gas professional to check the gas pressure.

Where do I find high temp paint to use on a gas stove?


Auto parts stores have manifold and engine paints for high temp use, or the hardware store has barbecue and wood stove paints, usually black. Your stove may have been enameled (Melted glass powder process, like ovens, old sinks and bathtubs).

Gas smell, oven not heating up


You gas oven uses a glowbar to both regulate and ignite the gas entering the oven. If this glowbar is faulty, it might let some gas into the oven but it is not hot enough to ignite the gas. That is why you are smelling gas. I would suggest to start by replacing the glowbar (and if this is not the solution, simply return the part for a refund). The part you are looking for can be found online here: http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=470129&SourceCode=1

It is quite easy to replace. Simply remove the free-standing pan on the bottom of the oven, unscrew the existing glowbar, remove the back cover from the stove and trace the two wires that belong to the glowbar and unplug them. Thread the two wires from the new glowbar through the opening and reconnect to the plugs at the back of the stove. Screw in the new glowbar and test. Most oven ignition problems are caused by faulty glowbard. Good luck.

GE gas stove the burners on top work, the oven won't get hot


The most common reason a gas oven won't heat is a bad igniter. It is located near the valve and burner under the oven bottom. You can usually see it glow orange just before the fire lights. Most GE ranges take a cylindrical igniter part #WB2X9154 or #WB13K21 rectangular igniter.

There is a vent pipe for the oven in the back usually just under the left rear burner, it is normal too get hot air there, if your drip pans are all solid you might want too change too pans that have holes in the center it should allow the top too breath a little better.
