How do I adjust the oven flame in my Kenmore range with a new regulator?

I have a Kenmore range model 911.3665896. The serial number is 2A2 29446 Q. The flame one day became mostly orange on burner and in the oven. The regulator was replaced. The flames were more blue for 1 day then they went back to orange for several days. They then became bluish orange. The gas company checked the pressure. The flame is now orangish blue. This range is about 7 years old. The air shutter has been adjusted. There is no soot or odor.

The model number that you submitted (911.3665896) appears to be slightly off. Based on the Kenmore range models that begin with the numbers 911.3665, I am showing that the pressure regulator for this model of range (part WB19K5020) is no longer available. If you replaced the original pressure regulator with a different part, this could be causing your problems.

The flame on the oven burner can normally be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the opening on the air shutter. You indicated that you already adjusted this air shutter. You may need to make further adjustments to achieve the proper flame. If the range is using natural gas, you may also need to adjust the burner orifice spud downward to restrict the flow of gas to the burner.

If you are not able to adjust the burner flames, I recommend that you have a service technician examine the range and adjust it.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of the range (after rechecking it).
