New ge oven we followed ALL the directions 4 no 5 times. e stove top works great the oven not so great. e flames shoot all the way from the broiler to the top of the oven. We changed the small lp cap in the boiler area to LP and adjusted the air adjuster shutter too. the flames do not change now what the oven is now a whopping 6 hrs old.

Re: 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.
I have a kenmore oven that is doing the same thing, it is LP, everything has been changed from natural gas to LP. The bottom flame in the oven is coming up through the bottom plate. I have adjusted the Oriface all the way down, and it makes no difference where it gets adjusted too the flame is still to high.

You need a Gas tech/plumber there urgently!!!! If the gas jets in your oven had not been changed to accomodate LP gas then the orifice on your existing jets are still to large in diameter. In other words your using Natural Gas jets ( lower pressure jets) for Lp which has a much higher pressure than Nat. gas, this can be extremely dangerous, & could cause major problems. Again I strongly suggest you contact a Gas tech/Plumber & do not use your oven until it has beeen checked by a professional.Good luck
You did not turn the brass adjustable orifice for the oven in or not in far enough. It is generally located right where the gas comes out of the safety valve, with a rectangular (about 3/4 x 3/4 air hole) by it about 4 inches before the burner. Usually, it takes a 1/2 inch open end wrench to turn in clockwise 3 full turns. (it's easier to do 12 one quarter turns or the wrench.)
On top of that safety valve is a nut. Get a good fitting wrench. Turn on the oven and use that good fitting wrench on that nut. Turn it counterclockwise till the flame comes up about midways of the flame spreader. Don't get the flames too high. Midways of the spreader now. LOL
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.
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.

Sounds right long as you did the conversion okay did you change the spring in the reg ? lp gas does burn lower than nat gas smaller blue flame . you could see if the aeration can be adjusted to the burners You could also check the pressure at the burners lp working pressure is 14in wg .
You could check the reg outside . That's all I got .
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.
Just bought a Kenmore and did this conversion myself. You do not change the oven nozzle (jets) but have to wrench it down with a 1/2" wrench as per instructions. After I did this the falme was high as you described. I wrenched it down further and adjusted the air shuttle and it was fine. The brioler is done the same. The wrench adjustment is tight so be aware.
