SOURCE: Flame does not seem hot enough - too much yellow flame.

In a gas dryer, heat is provided by a gas heater that is controlled by an air shutter. The gas heater is generally the source of no-heat or drying problems. You can often correct such problems by adjusting the air shutter on the gas burner, which is located along the bottom of the dryer.

To adjust the shutter, take out the screws and remove the panel that covers the gas flame. Turn on the dryer so the flame is burning. If the flame has a deep blue color and you hear air whistling around the burner, the air/gas mixture is receiving too much air. If the flame has a yellow tip, the mixture is not receiving enough air. Turn the thumbscrew or loosen the two screws slightly to increase or decrease the flow of air to the burner. Keep turning until the flame is a light blue color, without any yellow, and the whistling stops.

SOURCE: Propane gas flame is not hot. Do I adjust the air

Here is something to try if it is LP Gas:

Here is a Tip to fix a grill that not getting hot:
1. Turn the gas valve knob off. then close LP tank valve knob.
2. Unscrew the plastic hose coupling knob from the LP tank. You may hear a slight "hissing" sound as pressure is released this is normal.
3.Wait a minute then screw the coupling knob back on to LP Tank.
4.With lid open.slowly open LP tank valve.
5.Relight the grill the proper way by turning gas valve knob to ON position while turning the igniter knob at the same time.
6.After you are sure the grill is lit preheat the grill for 30 minutes.

This was called purging the line or releasing the air out of the line.

Another thing your orifice could be clogged with spiders or dirt. If it is LP gas check to make sure your hose is not kinked.

How do I adjust the flame in my gas oven


You have to be careful when adjusting the flame because you can cause carbon monoxide issues. There are two adjustments. the orifice hood and the air shutter. the orifice hood when turned will adjust the flame amount and the air shutter will adjust the burning of the gas. the hood will be on the line feeding the burner usually on them safety valve and should be a 1/2 inch nut. The air shutter is the door like opening on the burner tube itself. Your flame should be a nice blue cone without any yellow and should not blow and walk off the burner.

I see to have too much gas pressure after converting my Neptune dryer from natural gas to LP


you should not try to adjust the flame. LP burns more yellow that NG. The gas pressure automatically regulates the airflow based on the dynamic pressure that goes through the burner chamber. If your flame is roaring and pushing forward, everything is Okay, if it is a "Lazy" and falling flame, you have a blockage of the airflow - venting system

Starts to light but goes right out


Vaporized propane sounds just like air coming through a hose. Turkey fryers use a different regulator than a standard barbecue which uses a low pressure -- 11" water column displacement. Pressure for a BBQ is measured in displacement because LP pressure is very low, less than half one pound PSI. Turkey fryers use a higher pressure so more gas is able to feed to the burner but the regulator diaphragm adjusts because of the adjustment wheel. However, before determining the regulator needs to be replaced, adjust the air shutter on the venturi and ensure the orifice is clear. LP must be mixed with air in the burner in order to burn but if the shutter is open too much we can hear air-flow and too much air can definitely cause that sound and cause flames to blow out. We have a video at you---e showing the adjustment with too much air blowing-out the flames. First check your connections and orifice to make sure there are no leaks or impediments. Second restart the burner with the air shutter almost closed and continue making adjustments -- while burning if possible. If neither of those work replace the pressure regulator. Most people will initially say replace the regulator but they do not go bad as often as many think; a regulator is only a open space that limits him much gas can travel through at any time.

We need a model number to be specific.
Check the gas regulator and make sure the pressure cap has been set for propane.Most of them are turned over to put more pressure inside the valve.
If so. Check the air shutter on the bake gas tube and adjust for the best color flame.
Also tighten the bake burner orifice with a 1/2 inch wrench.

ON THE CAST IRON BURNERS THERE IS A PLATE WERE THE BURNER INSERTS INTO THE GAS VALVE. THIS PLATE CAN BE ADJUSTED TO ALLOW MORE/LESS AIR TO THE BURNERS BY SWIVELING THE PLATE .CANTHESE BE REPLACED


This 'adjustable plate' is known as an 'air shutter' located at the tips of the venturri tubes which are the tubes that carry the propane from the valve to the burner. These air shutters allow you to control your flame by mixing oxygen with propane to create a yellow flame to a blue flame. The perfect flame is a uniform blue flame with a small yellow tip.

Unfortunately, these air shutters are considered part of the burner itself and cannot be individually replaced. However, if the burner and venturri tubes are separate from each other, you may be able to get a replacement venturri tube without having to replace the entire burner unit.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.
