SOURCE: My blue flame propane heater has tall, 3-4 inch

Get a can of air used in the computer industry and blow on the pilot assembly and the main burner. You have debris or dust blocking the air horn of the burner. Simple fix!

Can you adjust a thermocouple out on a propane wall heater?


Unless you're having a pressure issue(it's cold outside and may be affecting the regulator, which can be adjusted) it may just be a dirty pilot orifice. Turn off the heater and let it cool down. Take a can of compressed air (the can with the straw to clean keyboards) and blow out the dust inside the pilot assembly were the orifice is inside. You'll know if it's dirty, if the pilot flame is a lazy yellow, as it should be a crisp blue flame encompassing the thermocouple. The thermocouple is pretty much set in place in these heaters, unless it's loose and has fallen down, it's most likely the dirty orifice.

ON MY ATWOOD WATERHEATER IT LIGHTS BUT PRODUCES A LOT OF SOOT AND DOES NOT SEEM TO FIRE UP LIKE IT SHOULD


You need to start by cleaning burner tube and pilot intake , sounds like spiders have probably spun a web in there. If flame is yellowish, it's not getting enough air. You can buy a barbecue burner brush, long and flexible, and run it through burner tube to clean out web, and if pilot is yellow as well, there is a small hole in side of fitting where it attaches up near burner that needs to be cleaned out with paper clip or even better, compressed air. After cleaning burner, adjust air shutter to get nice blue flame, with just a hint of yellow at tip. The idea there is to get blue flame, but not a roaring flame that is jumping off the burner. A spider web in there will usually allow propane through, but restricts air mixture, thus causing yellow flame (rich mixture) and soot to build up.

I turned my propane fireplace on and it set my smoke alarm off. We have lived here for three years and never had this problem before. Please advise.


check to see if the flame is pure blue. if not you have incomplete combustion letting CO or CO2 into the room. The flame will look yellow if this is the case. An orange flame indicates dust and dirt around the burner assembly. If it is yellow, the should be 1-2 set screws on the back of the burner assembly that will let you adjust the primary air being mixed with the propane.Adjust until you get blue flame and tighten set screws.

Propane gas burner now has red flame instead of blue


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!

Adjusting goodman propane burners


Yellow flame can also mean inadequate gas pressure. Do you have a manometer? If not, call your gas company for a check.

Burner flame adjustment


there are two considerations for burner height. 1) the gas adjustment screw on the knob and 2) the gas-air mixture to the burner. establish a flame and adjust the screw for a standing flame at the burner. adjust the gas-air ratio orifice so that the flame has no yellow tips.

Propane Reddy Heater


AIR MIXTURE ADJUSTMENT IS CRITICAL ON ALL GAS BURNING HEATERS. SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE INSUFFICIANT CUMBUSTION AIR WHICH WILL CAUSE A WHITE AND LAZY FLAME .... FLAME SHOULD BE BRIGHT BLUE WITH NO WHITE OR YELLOW TIPS ON THE FLAME.
