Hi and welcome to FixYa.

Check the venturi for the burner tube that leads from the control valve to the burner head. We often see where spiders take up residence and create a web and and obstruction right where the air is introduced into the venturi, causing the condition you are seeing. Also check the burner head itself for obstructions and make sure eveerything is clean. Usually air shutter adjustments are "fixed" and do not require adjustments, as these are factory pre-set. If this burner at one time functioned properly and has since degraded, something is interfering with the mixture and adjusting the shutter is not the correct fix. However, if this burner has not functioned propely from day one, there may be some adjustments needed.

I hope this info is useful to you. Please be aware that if you decide to rate my repsponse, "thanks for trying" is actually somewhat negative in nature. I only say this because I have taken the time to type out very detailed responses to people and they come back with a "thanks for trying" rating. The label for that rating is misleading to the customer. It means we didn't do such a good job answering your question.

Thanks for using our service!

The propane burner has a slide opening somewhere before the burner so the gas/air mixture can be adjusted to burn better and hotter. you get alot of soot because the gas is too rich, it needs more air mixed in before the burner. the air vent on top and bottom of the chamber has nothing to do with the gas/air mixture to the burner.

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.....

1 burner flares and sputters


Hello. Chances are that something on the stove boiled over or got poured into that burner. take it off, soak it overnight in water with dishsoap added, then rinse it and let it dry before reinstalling it. Repeat the soaking in soapy water if necessary until the flaring, sputtering and black soot is gone. regards, Joe

Black soot on Coleman propane burner


Had same problem. Coleman tech support said, " clean with pipe cleaners". No directions....I would think they would provide a step by step protocol. So, I chose to take the knobs off and use the pipe cleaner where I could. I was able to take one of the two burner control knobs apart. After sticking the clean in every nook I could find, I put back together, and the flame on that burner is back to normal,

Good Luck--Daryl in Burnsville, MN
