Flame on main hob of range master 110 is yellow and smelly also black sooty deposit left on jets


Ream out all the orifices and air venturi holes on the burner, adjust the air-ahutter, the air-shutter is usually nearer the valve/knob than to the burner. Yellow flame is an imbalance of fuel to oxygen and is creating Carbon Monoxide and not burning cleanly... this is the same problem that can make a furnace deadly. Blue flame=neutral flame.

Propane smell. When you light the oven and turn it off, the burner does not go completely off. Burns at a low yellow flame and sootie. Caused a co issue last night.


Probably a bad solenoid valve. Cut off the source before replacing the solenoid valve. Use caution, if you are not sure hire a professional.

I just had my furnace cleaned it is a gas rheem. The service guy said it was overheated because of a#3 tube he said the furnace heat exchange is black. What can be do regarding this


I presume you're talking about a gas furnace, even tho the title says Rheem gas water heater. Either way, it works the same for both.

Any black coloring on the heat exchanger is *not* from overheating. Black is from a sooty flame caused by a mis-adjusted burner. (In fact, a sooty flame is less hot). There is an adjustable "air intake plate" for air to enter the burner where the gas enters the burner. A proper flame is made by adjusting this air opening so the proper gas/air mixture feeds into the burner. If the air vent is closed too much it produces a sooty flame.
The age of the furnace is the most important aspect, and that helpful to determine a likely condition of the heat exchanger and burners. Other than a badly adjusted flame, the main thing to watch for is a badly rusted out heat exchanger. But black does not mean rust.

Front burner , yellow, flaring flames and sooty pans


Sounds like the front burner gas jet holes are either blocked in places or the gas regulation (air/gas) mix to that burner needs adjusting. Try removing the hub where the gas burns from and cleaning each hole with something like a paperclip and then blowing through it to expel any particals.

Flame does not burn blue -- it is more yellow and sooty


From what you described, the burner needs to be removed and cleaned and the air shutter adjustment needs to be readjusted. After cleaning and replacing the burner, you can light the unit and then start adjusting the air shutter, until the flames are blue with yellow or orange tips.

Hope this helped you.

I have a Kenmore 4 burner grill that I purchased about 3-4 weeks ago. 3 of the 4 burners have nice blue flames and work very well but the left middle burner gets a huge yellow flame no matter what temp it...


does the same burner flame turn blue if other burners decreast in flow-with that burner on high and others low-is it still yellow? if so Gas Valve needs to be replaced.

King kooker will not burn a blue flame, only a big yellow sooty


You may need to resize the orifice, sounds to me like it is too big. If you have an adjustable orifice try tightening it down a quarter turn at a time till that flame turn pretty. Leave that shutter wide open till you start getting a blue flame. Make sure you have no cob webs blocking the orifice.Blow out and remove all rust from the burner.

Sooty burning in oven after Natural-LP gas conversion


The conversion was not done correctly.
Either wrong parts or incorrect adjustments to air flow.
