On a gas range the tip should just be orange. Are you using gas or propaine? If propaine you need to buy a conversion kit.

    Can you take the top off the burner? If so take a nut driver and tighten the orface below the burner cap.

SOURCE: burner flame orange instead of blue, problem just started today

The only thing that i can think of is that it is not hot enough. try turning up the heat. Orange fire just means that it is not as hot as the blue fire.

SOURCE: kenmore twin burner.. orange flames

A <i>temporary</i> orange flame from your gas stove can also occur at peak usage times. An increase in local demand can cause a decrease in pressure in the natural gas line. If all of your gas appliances are in combustion simultaneously, this may also cause a drop in pressure, especially in older houses. If the problem persists, it is likely a dirty/clogged burner or the stove needs servicing. In general, an orange flame (on a gas combustion appliance) means incomplete combustion and carbon monoxide production.

Hi Don:
If the flames are too orange there is too much air reaching the burners, on the burner assembly's the are adjustments for the air mixture, Part 778714 (key 2 in the diagram) at the end away from the burner itself near the orifices you should see the screw to adjust this, loosen the screw and close the air off a bit at a time until the flame gets blue, if you feel you cant do this call a tech in to adjust these.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

The flames from the front left burner is 1/3 orange and 2/3 blue; whereas the flames from the other burners are all blue. There is a strong odour from the front left burner when we turn it on and also the...


The flames should be all blue - except when you first turn it on, where the flame begins, & only when you turn it on. Orange flames mean incomplete combustion is happening. Carbon monoxide is being released. Orange flames can also mean your getting low on gas. Clean it & try moving the disk around. An uneven disc means some flames will be higher & burn your pots. The flames are wrapping around your pots if they're burning on the sides. Keep flames under the pot. Regardless of the being clean, the odor means you need to check your gas level. Once filled back, the odor should be gone if that's the only problem. That is placed in the gas as a safety feature. Don't try to fix this problem yourself if the "easy" solutions don't work. It could be very dangerous. Invest in a carbon monoxide detector especially when you have anything gas.

Kenmore lp gas sealed burner stove,when opening or closing the oven door the top burners decrease in flame size and go out frequently.


This seems like a pressure regulator / flow problem. If you are running more than one appliance from bottled gas this can occurr if the supply pipe is not of sufficient size. When 'wafting the door' you are increasing air flow to the oven burners which in turn will consume more gas to balance the burn, this starves other burners that are running at the time.
Cure; increase regulator pressure (remove the foil cover to expose the screw) with the top burners alight adjust the screw 1/4 turn at a time until the flames are bright blue at heart and organge tipped. Increase as much as you can without the falme distorting away from blue/orange. If this doesn't cure it you may need to increase the size of your supply pipe to 15mm so that the volume of gas is greater and then split it off to normal lpg pipe to each apliance thereby creating a more even flow of supply. Often a system using say heating and gas fire is perfectly fine but add another appliance like a cooker or change your cooker to one which has more powerful burners and you can expose weaknesses in the flow system.

We have a Tappan gas range. Don't have the model number; it was in the apartment when we moved in. It is over ten years old. It has electronic ignition. The top burners all have orange-yellow flames...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

i would take all units out and clean them..clean all holes in the burners.
since you have the problem on all burners..air/fuel is not the problem at the adjustments..you may have a gas regulator problem

Dynasty gas range - orange flames


It is normal, it will disappear after a little while, when you bang on the burners, particle fell off form inside of the burners and it caused the orange flame. Yellow flame means not enough air or burner is internal clogged.
