The first thing I'd check is for a restriction in the combustion air. Sometimes birds and bees make nests there.
Second is check orifice for soot or carbon build up.
If I had make and model of furnace I could get more info.

LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.

SOURCE: furnace howls when burner lights for 30 or so

Hi, the howling you describe is pretty common as gas heaters first come on. NG or LP gas is delivered at a pressure much higher than appliances actually use, step down regulators lower the pressure as the gas flows. So, when you first turn your heater on, the pressure is a little high until the flow causes an equalization of pressure. You could contact your gas supplier and ask them to check your pressure and tell them you suspect a building regulator. If the pressure were to build too high it could cause leaks or damage the appliance controls.  Good luck.

Bob, your wife is partially correct. However, both burners should have blue flames with orange tips. Cleaning the burners and the their venturi valves, should solve the problem. When I say cleaning them, I mean removing and cleaning them.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

Kenmore lp gas sealed burner stove,when opening or closing the oven door the top burners decrease in flame size and go out frequently.


This seems like a pressure regulator / flow problem. If you are running more than one appliance from bottled gas this can occurr if the supply pipe is not of sufficient size. When 'wafting the door' you are increasing air flow to the oven burners which in turn will consume more gas to balance the burn, this starves other burners that are running at the time.
Cure; increase regulator pressure (remove the foil cover to expose the screw) with the top burners alight adjust the screw 1/4 turn at a time until the flames are bright blue at heart and organge tipped. Increase as much as you can without the falme distorting away from blue/orange. If this doesn't cure it you may need to increase the size of your supply pipe to 15mm so that the volume of gas is greater and then split it off to normal lpg pipe to each apliance thereby creating a more even flow of supply. Often a system using say heating and gas fire is perfectly fine but add another appliance like a cooker or change your cooker to one which has more powerful burners and you can expose weaknesses in the flow system.

There can be poor air mix ( oxygen) for the flame to grow up. so remove the burner and use a good metal brush and air jet to clean off allt he crust and dirt of food lodged into the burners.
Now if the regulator gas fflow is down then your jet is blocked. If so you might have to remvoe the regulator to see that the jet is cleaned out . use a thin pin and airjet to clean.

Propane flame is not blue but too high


A yellow or orange flame means (1) too much fuel, or (2) not enough air. Make sure the air ports where the regulator attaches are clear and that spiders or bugs haven't built a nest in the burner tube. If that's all clear, it's likely that the propane regulator has failed and is allowing too much fuel to enter the burner tube. The regulators are inexpensive and are not repairable; get a replacement unit.
