Propane gas burner now has red flame instead of blue

We own a Hotpoint Propane gas stove and recently it is showing a red yellow flame instead of blue on a few surface burners. Should I try to clean it or adjust it? And how? Propane gas company asked me not to use it and have one of their servicemen come up to the house for a service call. I don't think it is that serious. Do you?

Hi, If you have the same problem with your stove , furnace and water heater, Then you look for things in common that would cause the problem. Any change in the flames is an indication of a change in the fuel/air mix. The item that would be common to all would be the pressure diaphragm. This is not something a customer should work on without a through knowledge of how they work. I think you would be well advised to have a service call. Good Luck!

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.

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.

Side burner on propane gas grill burns with orange flame ratheer than blue


here is a link to a page that shows what the colors of the flame should look like and what causes the orange instead of the blue flame. http://www.appliance411.com/faq/gas_range_flames.shtml
I would begin by checking to be sure you do not have a spider or a cob web in the burner partially blocking the gas or the air intake.

What could be wrong with a gas stove hot point(2 yrs old)that has lots of black in the oven when using and also black on bottoms of pans when using burners on top? it just started doing this...


The flame is 'yellow tipping'. This means there is incomplete combustion and will leave black soot on everything. Did you recently start using propane? If so the stove will need to be converted to propane use, or the incoming gas pressure is too high. You may need a gas professional to check the gas pressure.
