I got a new gas stove, I can't seem to get the oven adjusted correctly. I
have turned in the orfice like explained in the manual. And then tried to
adjust my air , I have it all the way open and I still have big yellow tips
and out 3-4" long.
Am I adjusting this the wrong direction ? Should I be reducing air ?
BTW I am running LP not natural gas.
When the dealer delivered it and set it up, he should have tuned it up at
that time. Oh, you saved $20 and hauled it home yourself? If that is the
case, it is false economy.
Also, is the stove set up for propane? It required different regulator and
gas orifices than for natural gas.
You are correct for the burners as far as the orifices (but these are
usually included in an envelope taped to the back of the stove) but in the
stoves I have seen the oven usually has an adjustable orifice (as it seems
that the OP adjusted). The regulator is also the same - mostly - the ones I
have seen have a piece on the front that if you put it on one way (say
hollow part facing out) is for LP and the other way is for NG and it is
Just the oven burner is giving you troubles, the others are ok? Make,
Some model# helps.
Did the dealer convert the range from NG to LP for you or did you?
If you have already tried the directions in the use&care manual and
still cannot get it solved ti might be best to call the warranty
servicer in your area for that brand and have them check it out for

Umm..you still are going to need to replace the actual orifice for the gas
If you turned in anything on the gas valve, you changed the working pressure
for the spring in the valve, and you still yet need to reduce the size of
the orifice for the gas being fed to the burners.
Actually CB (and mind you this is from my current internship) the Oven
(which the OP seems to have a problem with) the oven "orifice" can be
changed by adjusting the "bake/broiler" valve (this is on "newer" ovens
which this appears to be) to adjust to LP or NG. The stovetop burners need
to have the orififices replaced to the appropriate gas (and as I stated
before the orifices for the changeover are usually included in an envelope
taped to the back of the stove). However the stove regulator just needs a
piece reversed to adjust for the type of gas being used (and thus adjusting
the spring tension on the existing regulator). This info is from my current
experience interning for a major (reputable) company that is willing to pay
me almost triple MW to fix appliances between my AC/Heat calls right out of
school so who am I to argue :-)
