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.

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.

Bob, your wife is partially correct. However, both burners should have blue flames with orange tips. Cleaning the burners and the their venturi valves, should solve the problem. When I say cleaning them, I mean removing and cleaning them.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

Just bought a house with a big old gas wall heater in what i think was originally a fireplace. Only half of the heater turns orange when it warms up. The flames along the bottom are all on and blue, it...


You'll need to remove the faceplate of the heater. Make sure it's off when you do this. Look inside the unit before you power it back up. You should be able to see your gas valve and the pipe that feeds the burner. Your going to find a simple air/gas controller. Depending on your heater, it could be a simple sleve that your able to turn to adjust your air/gas misture. Orange means you have to much air. You'll need to adjust it slightly to make sure you have a good mixture. You'll want a nice clean blue flame on all of the burners. Because it's a simple heater, you might or might not get all blue flames. If you can't, make sure they are blue as much as you can with the least ammount of orange possible.

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.
