Gas [Propane] oven problem

The burner in the oven has never performed properly. Lots of yellow flame and it extends beyond the flame guard on both sides. Adjusting the oxygen has no effect either way. Completly closed or fully open does not effect the flame at all. This oven has an electric igniter. Its a GE 4 burner model # JGBS17PEK1WW. The Part number I found in PartsSelect is PS233885. Do I need to replace the oven valve or is there an adjustment somewhere in the system?

Gas [Propane] oven problem

sounds like too much gas in mix.

are you sure the hood orifice was adjusted. turning the orifice clockwise should close it. this will reduce gas flow and flame size

take a look here for some things to check

Gas [Propane] oven problem

Thanks Mr Chips. Problem was that the orifice was poorly machine and was stuck in the natural gas mode. I backed it off several turns and kept tightening till it finally seated to the Propane position and problem is now solved. Its a low end stove so..........
