Gas stovetop flame pattern

I have a gas cooktop and the tips of the flame are a yellow/orange color instead of the blue at the base of the flame. Is that an issue? I check for a breeze but no fans or HVAC on.

    My 3- or 4-year Kenmore Elite cooktop has an intermittent problem like this. That is, usually I get a blue flame but sometimes it is orange. Sometimes the orange color persists several days, but then just as I am getting concerned it returns to blue. A couple of years before buying this range, because of low pressure we spent considerable money replacing a leaking old natural gas line (running from the meter to the house), so we assume the problem is not there.

Your flame is perfect if it's just the very tip that is yellow or white. All burners should be adjusted this way, on highest flame.

SOURCE: Soot deposits from my brand new downdraft jenn-air gas cooktop

Is this on LP or Natural gas? If LP was it converted to LP? In any event,The air shutter must be adjusted on the gas burner tube. You need more air. The valve orifice may also need adjusting.

Yellow flame


The problem is with the orifice leading to the burner. If it is not centred then you will get yellow flame. Or you are impeding the flow out of the burner and it is not mixing properley. I would pull the burners apart and make sure everything is clear and the orifice is centred.

New cooktop ! long flame yellow tips black deposits on pans


This is probably the result of inefficient burning of gas resulting in sooty deposits being left on the base of saucepans etc. It may be that the gas jets are blocked with spilt material and need cleaning. Try removing the gas hub with the gas jet holes in and sliding a paperclip sized rod into each hole to dislodge any material. Blow in the holes afterwards to force any loose material out. If this fails you may need a gas fitter to adjust the gas mixture regulators.

You don't have the right Gas to Air ratio..... Not enough air to the burners or you are running to low of gas pressure for propane... Propane takes a smaller orfice or operate than Natural Gas.....
You should have 10" of WC for Propane operation..
You will need a manometer to check it.
The flame should be a blue color with no yellow in it. There should be air shutters right at the orfice to each burners. You will have to play with the adjustment to get the best blue flame with no yellow in the flame.... Hope this helps.....

Usually this happens if something has been spilled or a pan overflowed and is partially clogging some of the burner holes. Make sure the burner holes are clear and try poking them with a sewing needle to make sure. I am assuming the flames are a nice blue color and not a lazy yellow or yellow-tipped. If there is some orange, that is usually an indication you are burning off some food and will need to be cleaned. If that doesn't appear to be the issue, then let us know and we'll dig deeper.
