Question about Thermador Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

My thermador gas cooktop has suddenly started to show a lot of yellow flame rather than blue flame. Research leads me to believe that the gas and air mixture needs to be adjusted. Is this something I can do myself? If so, where is the air baffle adjustment located?

    The burners are described as being "sealed" and they are covered with a star shaped burner cover that distributes the flame. All of the holes on the covers are clean and open. Each of the four burners started burning yellow at the same time. Any thoughts?

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.

One of the 4 burners has a LARGE, YELLOW flame (right rear burner). It just started today. Other 3 have a BLUE flame. Using Propane Gas Is this a fuel/air mixture problem, and if so, how do I fix...


The yellow flame suggest incomplete combustion is taking place and on a flueless appliance Otis very dangerous, check for dirt/greese that has accumulated aroroud the gas jets ( this will dercrease air available at the primary airport) if this is clean then your gas jet may be worn and become larger allowing more gas than air as they mix, in this case you will have to replace the gas injectors

I have a new gas hob which is making the bottom of my pans black like soot?


You must have an improper air/gas ratio. To adjust the shutters you simply open or close them a hair till you get a beautiful blue flame. Improper flame is yellow, good flame is blue. 9916a1c.jpgThis gas conversion training manual shows where to adjust

How do I know if the appliance store actually changed my cooktop to LP with a conversion kit? I'm beginning to wonder because I found a conversion kit in a box of supplies...it's been a year since they...


You should have voiced your concerns long ago with the store you purchased it from. But if they did not convert it, you would have large, yellow flames.Proper burner flames will have no yellow in them. They should be only a blue flame.

Installing thermador cooktop do you need a 1/2'' gap between bottom of cooktop and below exterior cabinet?


Hi,
Yes, the air gap is to make sure that too much heat does not transfer down to the wood below... and start a fire... believe it or not air is a great insulator...

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.

Creda 4 burner, converted to LP


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.
