Do you have a model number located on a sticker around the front frame of the oven and can be seen if you open the door or remove the drawer below the door if there is one so that I can better assist you?

Thank you. And are you saying that you do see a flame somewhere below the air mixture vent but not on the burner itself?

Right-makes a "roaring" sound and there is flame where you adjust the air mixture, but not at the holes in the burner tube

OK so that means you're getting back pressure through the bake burner for some reason. Make sure the bake burner didn't slip off the brass orifice coming from the gas valve Remove the bottom drawer and make sure it's sitting properly and the orifice goes up through the center of the bake burner. If that checks good, then close the shutter so it's only half open or so. Try again. If it still acts up---replace the burner because it's creating too much back pressure. Possibly it warped and the holes aren't allowing the gas to flow out properly. Below is a link to the burner if you need it.

OK, will check it. Hmm...it's still hot, been shut off for a while but there was still a very small flame, like a pilot light from the orifice.

That's normal. There is a glow igniter next to the burner that gets up to 3000 degrees to light the burner so it holds heat for quite awhile.

Wait! NO

I misunderstood you. That is NOT normal. If you have a flame coming out the orifice, it means your gas valve is leaking. You need to replace the valve. Below is a link to the valve you need to order and replace.
