Orange flame on cooktop instead of blue flame

I have a whirlpool super capacity465 range that is propane. I have had it for around five years. When i turn the cooktop on, no matter what burner, one or all, i have an orange flame instead of a blue flame. It sounds like its a mixture problem with air and gas. It used to be once in a while, now its orange all the time. If its a mixture problem, can i adjust it? is it easy to reach? Any help would be great.

It can be a mixture problem or low pressure from the regulator
gas repairs /adjustments in not in the DIY domain as it is extremely dangerous
call a gas fitter to properly diagnose the problem and have it done safely

SOURCE: burner flame height adjustment

All ignitors will always arc whenever one of them does.

I haven't worked with propane systems much, but it seems you may need the propane pressure regulator adjusted.

If the problem is only with the power burner, I would ensure that particular orifice was actually changed. The hole in a propane orifice is smaller than for natural gas.

SOURCE: Whirlpool 465 Gas Stove conversion from propane to gas?

In most cases the orifices can be removed and reversed to convert from lp to natural gas. Sometimes you will need a conversion kit and you will need to look this up by model number. 465 is the oven capacity not the model number. You can locate the model number by pulling the drawer out and looking behind it. Please let me know the model and I can let you know what kit you need. Also I should let you know that your gas company is the most qualified to convert your range, and this conversion should not be attempted by anyone who is not qualified. If this conversion is not completed properly you could be risking your life and the lives of everyone in your home, so make sure you know what you are doing!! Or get a qualified person. Good luck and please be careful making any changes to your gas appliances. Please dont forget to rate me also.

SOURCE: 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!

Why does my burners not ignite into a blue flame


The color of the flame can be affected by a few different things. here are three of them: 1. If there is a food substance contacting the burner where the flame comes out, this will give the flame an orange tint. 2. If the propane is being burned at a very high rate, the flame can become invisible in daylight-like conditions. 3. If the propane is being burned at a very low rate it can also have an orange tint. Hope this is clarifying.

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.

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.

When you turned the oven off, if the ignitor went off and the gas kept flowing then the thermal valve is defective. Maybe that was the problem all along.

Gas oven that cooks unevenly


clean your orifaces.

Also make sure that it's the correct stove for your gas type. If you're using a NG stove on Propane, you're wrong. It's making a lot of soot, and could potentially blow up your house. Stop using it until you're sure.
