SOURCE: Front right burner won't go on high, keeps continuous low flame only

Dear lejeunelm

Righteo then, this is a problem that will probably require you to send the appliance back to where you got it from as there is either a fault with a valve, the gas regulator, or a problem with the supply. Even if this fault is caused by an electronic regulator (controls the amount of gas that is pushed through the burning chamber, and to the temperature it heats (if your gas cooker has this), then it is SERIOUSLY ADVISABLE to get yourself a corgi approved gas engineer to look at this fault and fit the part. Obiously becuase gas is not only explosive, but also pretty poisonous either before or after combustion has occured.

Now id did mention that the fault could be associated with either the supply, regulator, valve or anything that controls the flow of gas, but the fault could also be caused by something as simple as the twist knobs on the front of the cooker unit. If the knob either becomes stuck, or is not in the correct position then obviously the gas settings will be wrong. Now behind this knob, there probably will be a flow valve, which will control the amount of gas being delivered to burn. Probably a good point of fact to get the valve checked too. Even more reason if you get a funny smell of gas that is being emitted, as this would indicate a leak either with the valve or elsewhere in the system (which causes pressure to drop and hence low amounts of gas being delivered to the combustion area).

I would suggest calling out an engineer to check your gas supply, and definitely take the coioker back to where you got it from. Although this may seem like drastic measures, it is not as drastic as the potentail risks to you and those around you if the problem is serious. (explosions, fires and poisonings are common with gas problems if they are serious enough). It is probably wise to also do this if you have an insurance premium on your house/ flat or place of residence.

Now there could be chance that you your good self are an engineer to some degree, or have experiance with gas fixtures and fittings, now if this is the case, then i would start by suggesting a trip online to http://www.google.com and then typing the manufacturer/ vendor model of your cooker into google with the words "service sheets" or "repair manual" or "repair instructions". Now this will give you a list of websites that will offer you the chance to get hold of the information that you require, however some of these sit6es may charge you for the technical data, and some even so expensive, that the cost of the sheets is outweighed by the cost of taking the unit/ getting a professional in to do the job for you.

Now lets say that you did do the job yourself, then you may need parts, and i reckon http://www.google.com yet again will be the best place for you to start searching for the parts. NOTE:::IF YOU DO ORDER ONLINE, CHECK THAT THE PARTS ARE NOT FROM THIRD PARTY VENDORS. ONLY PURCHASE APPROVED PARTS FOR FUITTING TO YOUR MAKE AND MODEL OF COOKER/ GAS UNIT)

Finally, if you do get your appliance worked on, always get a second opinion and always demand that you have your old part back (if any need to be fitted) as so you can have this checked over to find exactly the fault cause, and obviously to send the part back to the manufacturer/ vendor to make them aware of the issue.

I hope that this fixya is the fixya you require and also that you get this matter resolved in the fastest and most appropriate way. In the meantime, if I can be of anymore assistance, please feel free to contact me as soon as you feel the need to, and i will endeavour to advise you on virtually any technical issue that i have experiance within (mostly home/ business electricals and appliances).

In the mean time, i hope you take care, and hope to ghear your response soon.

yours sincerely

SOURCE: my gas is burning with

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.

SOURCE: Gas range burner flame too high and too yellow.

Did it work OK in that location before the changes?
Sounds like you used Natural gas parts instead of LP.
Lp orifices have smaller holes than Nat.

SOURCE: my oven burns with a yellow/orange flame How do I

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

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.

My ovens flame is completely a dark yellow is this normal? my cooker is a cannon thankyou


no,this flame is like this because either the flame orfice is dirty or the burner is dirty or the unit isnt getting enough air mixture to completely burn the gas and this will lead to a yellow flame instead of the normal blue flame

On a patio heater why is the flame yelow and noisy


Your gas/air mix is not correct. Not enough air. You should be able to adjust the unit and correct this. Read the manual first to find the adjustment and procedure. When properly set the unit should have a blue flame with a white or very small yellow tip. Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

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.

Pilot light flame is mostly yellow. LP gas


Hi,
Thr thing you need to do is take the pilot assembly all apart and blow the dust and dirt out of it.
After burning for many, many hours the air that is move up through the pilot assembly leaves dust and dirt which plugs off a bit of the air and makes the flame run rich. Meaning that it does not get enough air mixed in for complete combustion.
When you clean it you will see the dirt and dust com out of it.
Reassemble carefully just as you took it apart and it will be back to working great again!!

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!
