Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The issue is likely with the regulator or the fuel source. Is the flame as it has been or is this a new problem? Is the oven on LP fuel?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The oven is on bottled gas. The flame is much lower than it use to be.
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.

Thank you. Provided the fuel pressure has not changed, which it likely has not, the orifice may be plugged or the regulator is faulty. Clean the orifice for the oven burner out and replace the regulator if cleaned with no change. You will need to locate a universal regulator as the one for your oven is not going to be available.

Thanks KellyHow is the orifice removed to be cleaned?
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.

Don't remove it, just use a pipe cleaner or similar to poke in the hole to remove any carbon build up or other debris that may be in there. If it sat for any length of time, spiders like to build webs in them that can diminish gas flow, too!
