My Kenmore stove using propane has yellow flames. How do I adjust the flame? air flow no help.

I have a Kenmore gas range model number 790.71042301. I am using propane. I need to know how to get rid of the yellow tip flame. Are there any parts I will need?

Yellow tips on the flames is caused by too much gas, not enough air, or sometimes the propane you are using.

If you have the air shutters for the top burners open as wide as they can go, remove the burners on one side and using a 1/2 inch socket or wrench tighten the orifices onto the burner valve 1/4 turn. This will turn the amount of gas down and might stop the yellow tips. If you still have yellow tips, remove the burners and tighten the orifices another 1/4 turn. Do this until the yellow tips go away.

When you no longer have yellow tips if the burner is high enough to cook you are good. If the burners are too low, the problem is in the propane. It will go away when you refill your tank.
