Default LP Gas Oven Air Adjustment

sorry...I know this is not an an electrical appliance question......but maybe someone could help.

my gas oven keeps building up with soot. it is a caloric range and has been converted over from natural to LP gas. I have adjusted the air flow valve to allow more air into the mix but continue to get a yellow flame which Im told indicates unburnt gas. Any suggestions at troubleshooting this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

How was it convereted? Kit required? Screwed down the orifice hoods and convert the regulator? Recently?

Sooting is usually caused by one of three things: 1) range not set up to burn the fuel you're supplying (i.e., natural gas or LP), 2) insufficient primary combustion air, or 3) too much gas.

Did this just start happening?

Model# of your range?

Some model# helps.

A copy....

Thanks for the reply Jeff...

Its been happening for some time.....it was converted. there is a screw....on top of the regulator that is inverted to convert to LP. At the moment I cant tell what the model is.....its at my lake place and Im going there tomorrow. so i will post to you next week. it seems that very little changes with the flame when i adjust the airflow.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Bob

See if the orfice hood/burner adjustment nut was screwed done ( if like yours ) on the bake burner....



....you may even want to remove the bake burner to give it a good cleaning out as well from the sooting.

Hi,

A copy....

Hi jeff,

back from the lake....and the model number of the caloric range is:LS359ULOF.

I havent cleaned out the burner yet....but Im thinking that may be my problem. I will let you know if that gets results.

Thanks again for your help.

Bob

Any chance is that RLS359ULOF ?

Caloric usually had 3 letters at the beginning of the model#'s.

Definetly need to screw the pilot orifice/burner adjustment nut all the way down/in for LP and see if there is a set screw on the oven control ( under the temp knob ) for NG or LP...set screw must be set for LP. Cap on regulator usually gets flipped over for LP and the same orifice/burner adjustments get screwed down for LP except they are up near the knobs for the surface burners.

If still sotty after the cleaning, the gas valve and/or burner may need to be replaced.

jeff.
