Is this on LP or Natural gas? If LP was it converted to LP? In any event,The air shutter must be adjusted on the gas burner tube. You need more air. The valve orifice may also need adjusting.

How do I adjust the flame on a MGC5430 gas cooktop? Flames are too yellow and cause black soot on bottom of pans. Doesn't seem to have an air shutter adjustment


Is this unit set up for natural gas or propane? New stoves usually come with ORIFACES for both gasses. They would install between the on/off knob and the burner tube under the stove top. They may be tapped to the under burner area of your stove. If you lift your top stove cover you may find them. If you don't find them, you may need to purchase the correct applications for your stove. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

I am using propane for my cooktop but all my pots and pans have been turning burnt black soot on the bottoms. It's ruining all my other dishes now from the dishwasher spreading it all over, We tried...


You don't have the right Gas to Air ratio..... Not enough air to the burners or you are running to low of gas pressure for propane... Propane takes a smaller orfice or operate than Natural Gas.....
You should have 10" of WC for Propane operation..
You will need a manometer to check it.
The flame should be a blue color with no yellow in it. There should be air shutters right at the orfice to each burners. You will have to play with the adjustment to get the best blue flame with no yellow in the flame.... Hope this helps.....

Just put in a new Caldera LPGas cooktop the flame is yellow and putting soot on pots how can I adjust air to correct this?


you stove may have jets for natural gas rather than bottled gas the calorific value of natural gas is different to propane and the jets are larger because of this. if using bottled gas then you will get yellow flame and soot because there is too much gas to burn properly check your installation manual for procedure to change the jets for each gas

I have a new gas hob which is making the bottom of my pans black like soot?


You must have an improper air/gas ratio. To adjust the shutters you simply open or close them a hair till you get a beautiful blue flame. Improper flame is yellow, good flame is blue. 9916a1c.jpgThis gas conversion training manual shows where to adjust

I have a Jenn Air gas cooktop, only about 2 years


If the burner just clicks and won't stare try this (a local tech showed me) Scrape the underside of the burner cap (the removable black disk in the middle of the burner) with a key or knife and watch it work! But be ready to do it again and again. There's a glossy finish left by the factory he said.

1 burner flares and sputters


Hello. Chances are that something on the stove boiled over or got poured into that burner. take it off, soak it overnight in water with dishsoap added, then rinse it and let it dry before reinstalling it. Repeat the soaking in soapy water if necessary until the flaring, sputtering and black soot is gone. regards, Joe

Poorly functioning Shipmate stove


Hi

Normally pressing red buttons on stoves is for lighting the oven. You press the button, light the pilot light, leave it depressed for a minute and then that heats up the thermocouple, which opens a valve and allows gas to the main burner.

Shipmate Stoves are still in business, so you could contact them. The link also suggests places for Shipmate propane gas stove spares.

The soot stains come from the air mixture, that will show too much yellow flame tips, just adjust the air intake, too have an idea how much to adjust it, and also it wouldn't hurt to clean the flames holes by sticking a pin. Alos make sure you have the right fittings converters. It's the grill LP Gas or Natural?
