CHECKING THE FLAME SIZE
WARNING:
If you attempt to measure
the inner cone of the flame, please
use caution; burns could result.
1. Checking the flame size:
Check the inner cone of the flame.
It should be approximately ½” to
¾” long for the bake and broil
burners.

IN SOME CASES:
a. With L.P. gas, some yellow
tipping on the outer cone is
normal.
b. Foreign particles in the gas line
may cause an orange flame at
first, but this will soon disappear.
SPECIAL NOTE:
To convert the oven back to natural
gas, reverse the instructions given in
making L.P. Adjustments.
REPLACE OVEN PARTS
Replace the oven bottom, oven racks,
oven door and broil drawer.
NOTICE:
CHECKING THE FLAME QUALITY
The combustion quality of the
burner flames need to be
determined visually.
NOTE: If burner flames look like
(A). Further air shutter adjustmentis required. Normal burner
flames should look like (B) or (C),
depending on the type of gas
you use. With LP gas, some
yellow tipping on the outer
cones is normal.
(A) Yellow Flames:
Further Adjustment
Required
(B) Yellow tips on
outer cones:
Normal for LP Gas
(C) Soft Blue Flames:
Normal for Natural Gas.
When all adjustments are made
and the results are satisfactory:
a. Replace the orifice fitting cover
(in some models).
b. Replace the oven bottom.
Once the conversion is complete and
checked ok, fill out the L.P. Sticker
and include your name, organization
and date conversion was made.
Apply the sticker to the range near
the regulator to alert others in the
future that this appliance has been
converted to L.P. If converting back
to natural gas from L.P., please
remove the sticker so others know
the appliance is set to use natural
gas.
