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.

Flames are orange and yellow not blue


A Yellow or Orange indicates your burning too much gas and not enough air. You need to make sure the gas orfaces and air input is clean of grease and gunk, and then adjust the iar input opening to the proper color (Blue) flame.

FLAME IS YELLOW INSTEAD BLUE for sunbeam gas range


Yellow usually means more air than gas mixing at the burner. The top of the stove lifts off. There are adjustment screws in front of every burner. Turn the burner on after first locating the screw. Turn the adjustment screw until desired flame is achieved. You want a flame with a yellow tip and the body of the flame blue. Please be very careful not to get burned. Hope this helps.

Kenmore lp gas sealed burner stove,when opening or closing the oven door the top burners decrease in flame size and go out frequently.


This seems like a pressure regulator / flow problem. If you are running more than one appliance from bottled gas this can occurr if the supply pipe is not of sufficient size. When 'wafting the door' you are increasing air flow to the oven burners which in turn will consume more gas to balance the burn, this starves other burners that are running at the time.
Cure; increase regulator pressure (remove the foil cover to expose the screw) with the top burners alight adjust the screw 1/4 turn at a time until the flames are bright blue at heart and organge tipped. Increase as much as you can without the falme distorting away from blue/orange. If this doesn't cure it you may need to increase the size of your supply pipe to 15mm so that the volume of gas is greater and then split it off to normal lpg pipe to each apliance thereby creating a more even flow of supply. Often a system using say heating and gas fire is perfectly fine but add another appliance like a cooker or change your cooker to one which has more powerful burners and you can expose weaknesses in the flow system.

My oven burns with a yellow/orange flame How do I adjust it to burn with a blue flame


Sound like the igniter is not reaching the correct amp draw, so it is not opening the gas valve all the way. Watch this video on troubleshooting a gas oven. www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

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).
