Customer Question
The oven flame on...

The oven flame on our Montague propane range burns yellow and until we cleaned it there was soot buildup. The air shutter is already adjusted wide open and the flame does not change when I loosen the screw and adjust.The range top burner flame is blue

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your oven? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Montague Grizzly about 27 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I want to try

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I can’t think of anything

Coming from the gas valve where the burner attaches to it (right where you see the air shutter), there is a bass orifice that goes up into the burner. Tighten this orifice down all the way to convert it to propane. If it is tightened down as far as it'll go, then you need to order a new orifice which could be a bit of an issue at 27 years unfortunately.
