Cannot adjust oven flame in newly installed kenmore gas (lp) convection range

We just installed a new kenmore gas range (model #790-72903011). It was converted to use propane. We were able to adjust the surface units flames fine, however cannot adjust the oven flame. The flame is too big and too orange. Adjusting the air shutter does not change anything.

Jeff, sometimes the orifice hoods are difficult to turn the last turn needed. I would remove both orifices, put some light oil on the threads the orifices screw onto and retighten.
It is possible to overtighten the orifices and damage the needle they mate with inside the fitting. I would finish the last turn or 2 with the flame on so you know when you have tightened the orifices enough.

i just installed a new kenmore gas oven. i did the LP conversion, and adjusted both the broiler & oven spuds, but the oven flames still visible. i also adjusted the airflow, but that didn't make any difference. anybody have a similar problem?

When a range is converted to us LP gas the orifice hoods for the bake and broil burners have to be tightened down. Tighten the orifice hoods until they are snug. Light the burner and if the flame is still too large tighten the orifice hood some more. Be careful to not over tighten the orifice hood or you will damage the gas valve or adapter.

I am sending you an image showing the adjustment of the orifice hood.
