SOURCE: one burner puts out soot.
Hi there, I believe that the burner you are having a problem with, needs the inside of it cleaned, probably has alot of dust inside, or some material is in/on the orifice where the gas enters, you could also have an alignment problem with the orifice, causing a disturbance in the flow of the gas/air mixture. In addition it sounds like you may have a gas pressure problem, you should contact your gas supplier to have it checked, or call your local service company.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Yellow is a "reducing" flame meaning low oxygen, whereas blue is an oxidizing flame. There is not enough air mixing with the gas. Clean out the pipes and free the air intake holes on the first stage of the burner assembly.

Check your propane tank first; is it getting close to being empty? Check where the hose connects to the burner, there should be an air adjustment there; it looks like a rotating disc with two big holes on either side, this is turned when the burner is lit to adjust the amount of air mixing with the gas. If it's all the way open, you have a yellow flame, if it's closed all the way you have a blue (but weak) flame. Try adjusting that and if that doesn't work, try a different regulator...it is rare a regulator could cause this but it could cause it; just use that as your last resort.
