Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
The flames in my new Hotpoint RGB745 LP Oven are extremely high shooting up the sides of the oven. We have changed the setting from Natural to LP and it goes up the sides for both settings. We have tried following the directions in the manual but it doesn't seem to be working. HELP!! Thanks.
Did you also change all the orifice's for the oven and the top burners? to me that sounds like your problem. the orifice's for natural gas are larger then for propane. so make sure the conersion has been properly done. most times the LP orifices are somewhere on the back of the range. Good Luck

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.

Actually you shouldnt really be fooling around with gas without a proper licence we have to go to college for quite some time to be able to handle gas safely but hey hope you dont blow yourself up !!!!!

Brand NEW Fridgidaire(High End)model,my neighbor just bought ,is doing this same thing! Now,he couldn't wait for the LP Tech(days) ,to do the conversion. So being the "Macho guy he is,I belive he Overtightened the Orifice,WAY,beyond 2 1/2 turns down/snug!! All top burners:OK .I gotta check that regulator though,it was a NEW Range he replaced too! Then ,he had Top burner trouble! LP tech came out,NOTHING Sears came out(Kenmore)NOTHING!Same condition on top burners of other range.TOO much flame!!One ,would think it MUST be in the regulator,or??You have at least added some help for me,as it seems we all have the same condition:Oven Flames "Shooting up around Burner"! Thanks,will get back soon! The Trailer Park Wiz!

Tighten the adjusting nut until it feels snug, then loosen to adjust flame

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.
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.
