There is a flame adjust ring on each burner where the gas exits the inlet nozzle. Before adjusting these, be sure all other gas appliances are working ok (water heater, etc.) . If they are then focus on the pressure regulator on the stove itself. That is the part that the gas line from the wall connects to on the stove. It is most likely bad. If not then go back to each burner , loosen the screw that locks the adjustment ring, turn the burner on and move the ring back to allow more air to mix with the gas so the tips of the flame just turns from orange to blue. Tighten the screw and move to the next burner that needs adjustment.
I recommend you have gas company or appliance service. Gas is nothing to "fool" with. It sounds like a fuel (gas) air mixture problem. Have you "cleaned" underneath the burner recently and by chance not re-installed the burner properly? Or someone else? Double check. If you see something obviously wrong, correct it. Otherwise as above.
check gas pressure if too low it will soot and overheat correct gas pressure and clean out outside of heat exchange so heat can go up through vent make sure level also if leaning back flame will come forward
Soot is unburned carbon in the gas and is caused by the flame being short of oxygen. The burner assembly may be dirty or your air adjustment is off. Once a burner starts to make soot, it gets progressively worse on till it is repaired. The first thing to try is a good cleaning. If that does not solve it, look for the air adjusters. They should be near where the supply gas line meets the burner orifice. open them a little at a time and watch the flame for change. More air should clean up the cabon. Also check the gas pressure regulator for proper adjustment. It could be set too high. Let me know how your doing, OK? Roger
I too have the same problem with my Admiral dryer. Have come to the conclusion that the soot is making all my clothes greyer, but just noticed it with my whites. Took apart my dryer today and first of all found that the outlet below the lint vent was plugged. There is no soot on the outside of the drum or the dryer housing...however there is soot within the metal tube that surrounds the gas burner. Seems the gas is not being burned properly or the plugged lint trap was not letting the burned gases escape??? Laura
theres no danger.its the residue from the gas.if using propane,it burns very dirty and leaves soot.if natural gas its the same but not as bad.you can simply just wipe them down with water but use an old rag because the soot is very dirty.if using an electric oven/burner the discoloration of the element is from the heat and is normal.also if the oven is gas the soot will eventually clog the holes/orfices in the burner and it will cause some issues.hopes this helps--let me know.
propane gas right?if so what your hearing is blowback,propane burns very dirty therefore obstructing the air/fuel mixture in the pilot/burner.you need to clean out the pilot and burner.gain access to the burner there should be a couple of screws and use oven cleaner to remove the soot.use gloves its messy.let me know happy new year!
The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.
