Yellow flame is a sign of incomplete combustion. It is normally seen if your range has not been converted, converted improperly, or incompletely from one type of gas (ie: natural gas) to another type which is in use (ie: LP or more formally Liquid Petroleum, or Propane) Yellow flame is generally not considered to be a safety hazard but will result in suit build up on your cooking utensils. If you have not changed gas supply type but flame color just changed, look for some obstruction to the air shutters of the burner(s) in question. Some yellow tipping of the flame is normal. If you use LP gas, it is actually a mixture of liquid components which vaporize at different temperatures. The actual percentage of one component to another can vary a bit due to outdoor temperature around the storage tank during use, resulting in temporary combustion issues. In cold weather areas (like here in Minnesota) we run into this fairly often, but people who live in warm climates should not be affected by that.

What color should the flame be on a propane fireplace insert---blue or yellow?


clean burn gas is a blue flame
it is achieved by using the correct jet size for the gas in use and by adjusting the air shroud around the jet opening
if you converted from natural gas to LPG and didn't change the jet size that is one reason
next there is a tin type shroud around the jet area that can be moved back or forward over the big hole that lets air to mix with the gas at the jet
the position of that shroud adjusts the air to gas ratio
If you are not sure of what I am talking about , talk with a gas fitter or have them do the job

Left burner produces a normal blue flame, but the right burner produces a big yellow flame - how can I fix this?


Hi inomura...
Look at the left burner, pipe,air hole adjustment,etc because it is operating good.
You will see a difference to it compared to the on the right.
The right pipe, air hole, or the length the pipe that are iserted in the gas control valve is different from the left.
The yellow flame indicates that not enough air is getting to the flame getting to the right flame ignition point.
The left flame is nice and blue...normal, the right is yellow indicating that not enough air is getting to the flame ignition point...look to see if the air hole adjustment is different than the one on the left...there is something open more or less, improperly adjusted.
Once you have it adjusted properly the right flame will burn bright blue just as it does on the left.

Gas oven flame yellow not blue like grill and hob rings.Flame is floppy and laboured and doesn't shoot up when turned up,could this be the thermostat Regards F Daley


Normally not the thermostat. Blue flames signify that the gas is burning clean, a yellow flame signify that some contaminate is burning with the gas. I would guess that something has leaked onto the burner or you have some corrosion build up. Try taking it out and giving it a good cleaning with a soft bristled brush and see if that is any better.

Just recently our 10 year old stove started smelling funny only when its on. the burner burns but the flame is yellow and was normally blue. I understand the air fuel mixture could be off, how Do I fix...


Gas flame on all gas appliance should burn clear blue.
Yellow flame means you need to clean the burners.
This applies to stoves, oven, furnaces, water heaters

I did a google search for: clean burners on gas stove.
There was more information and helpful tips on those links than I can honestly repeat here, including how-to videos.

Kenmore oven doesnt bake


Can I assume that you determined that the bottom burner flame is burning properly? To do this, remove the oven bottom insert. The flames should have approximately 1" of blue cone and should burn with no yellowing tip, if on natural gas. (A small yellow tip on the end of the outer cone is normal with most LP gas.) The flmaes should not lift off the burner ports. If the flame is lifting, gradually reduce the air shutter until the flame stabilizes.

Go to the following website for your particular manual.

Funny Smell


ALL YOUR FLAMES SHOULD BE CLEAN BLUE FLAMES WITH NO WHITE OR YELLOW TIPS OR FLAMES !!!! YELLOW FLAME = DIRT OR PAINT? WHITE = LACK OF AIR SOUNDS LIKE YOUR STOVE IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH COMBUSTION AIR. INPROPER AIR ADJUSTMENTS OR LACK OF AIR WILL CAUSE A WHITE TIP ON THE FLAME ... THAT IS CARBON-MONIXIDE !!! A CLEAN BLUE FLAME EMITTS CARBON-DIOXIDE AND IS NORMAL. IF YOU USED AN AIR-GUN TO PAINT, CHANCES ARE YOUR BURNERS HAVE A SLIGHT COATING ON THEM AND HOPEFULLY WILL BURN OFF IN TIME. TRY OPENING ALL YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS IN YOUR HOUSE ... AND TURN ALL BURNERS ON AND LET THEM BURN FOR AN HOUR. DO NOT LKEAVE SIGHT OF THE STOVE, BUT KEEP NEAR A OPEN WINDOW. NOTICE !!! MOST GAS COMPANIES WILL COME OUT AT NO CHARGE TO CHECK GAS, AND FOR CARBON-MONOXIDE.(C0) NOT (CO2).
