    Sometimes when you cook and the pot overflows or particles get into the ports-Take a thin stiff wire or use a paper clip and slide it into each flame port a few times each then take a vacuum with a wand and suck particles out while tapping lightly on burner

I have a G.E. natural gas cook top. All 4 burners have a lot of yellow flame all of a sudden. Is there an adjustment for this I could make? Please explain the best you can.

Are you using propane or natural gas?if propane you need to clean the burner real good.propane burns very dirty and the soot clogs the burner.if natural gas is used look on the end of the burner,youll see an air shutter all you do is turn the shutter to increase or decrease the air flow.

yellow flames in gas burners indicates
1--insufficient gas pressure
2-- the position of the air shroud around the gas jet is wrong and needs to be moved forward or back to adjust the amount of air available for the air /gas mixture
correct mixture is a blue flame

Left burner produces a normal blue flame, but the right burner produces a big yellow flame - how can I fix this?


Hi inomura...
Look at the left burner, pipe,air hole adjustment,etc because it is operating good.
You will see a difference to it compared to the on the right.
The right pipe, air hole, or the length the pipe that are iserted in the gas control valve is different from the left.
The yellow flame indicates that not enough air is getting to the flame getting to the right flame ignition point.
The left flame is nice and blue...normal, the right is yellow indicating that not enough air is getting to the flame ignition point...look to see if the air hole adjustment is different than the one on the left...there is something open more or less, improperly adjusted.
Once you have it adjusted properly the right flame will burn bright blue just as it does on the left.
Please take time to rate me

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.

My flame has a lot of yellow in it instead of pure blue


The air intake on each burner needs adjusting, as you have an improper ratio of gas to air. The burner flames should have blue base with yellow tips.

FLAME IS YELLOW INSTEAD BLUE for sunbeam gas range


Yellow usually means more air than gas mixing at the burner. The top of the stove lifts off. There are adjustment screws in front of every burner. Turn the burner on after first locating the screw. Turn the adjustment screw until desired flame is achieved. You want a flame with a yellow tip and the body of the flame blue. Please be very careful not to get burned. Hope this helps.

What color should the burner flame be


The burner flame should be blue.
If you have the spider air flow open to wide the flames will be yellow.
This means the gas flow has to much oxygen.

Typically the air vent should nearly closed.
You may not be able to remove all the yellow and have a few Yellow tips.
This is ok, just try to adjust were you have the last amount of yellow in the flames.

Good luck!
Hope this helps.

ON THE CAST IRON BURNERS THERE IS A PLATE WERE THE BURNER INSERTS INTO THE GAS VALVE. THIS PLATE CAN BE ADJUSTED TO ALLOW MORE/LESS AIR TO THE BURNERS BY SWIVELING THE PLATE .CANTHESE BE REPLACED


This 'adjustable plate' is known as an 'air shutter' located at the tips of the venturri tubes which are the tubes that carry the propane from the valve to the burner. These air shutters allow you to control your flame by mixing oxygen with propane to create a yellow flame to a blue flame. The perfect flame is a uniform blue flame with a small yellow tip.

Unfortunately, these air shutters are considered part of the burner itself and cannot be individually replaced. However, if the burner and venturri tubes are separate from each other, you may be able to get a replacement venturri tube without having to replace the entire burner unit.

Hope this helps.

Flame does not seem hot enough - too much yellow flame.


In a gas dryer, heat is provided by a gas heater that is controlled by an air shutter. The gas heater is generally the source of no-heat or drying problems. You can often correct such problems by adjusting the air shutter on the gas burner, which is located along the bottom of the dryer.

To adjust the shutter, take out the screws and remove the panel that covers the gas flame. Turn on the dryer so the flame is burning. If the flame has a deep blue color and you hear air whistling around the burner, the air/gas mixture is receiving too much air. If the flame has a yellow tip, the mixture is not receiving enough air. Turn the thumbscrew or loosen the two screws slightly to increase or decrease the flow of air to the burner. Keep turning until the flame is a light blue color, without any yellow, and the whistling stops.

Creda 4 burner, converted to LP


Your flame is perfect if it's just the very tip that is yellow or white. All burners should be adjusted this way, on highest flame.

Funny Smell


ALL YOUR FLAMES SHOULD BE CLEAN BLUE FLAMES WITH NO WHITE OR YELLOW TIPS OR FLAMES !!!! YELLOW FLAME = DIRT OR PAINT? WHITE = LACK OF AIR SOUNDS LIKE YOUR STOVE IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH COMBUSTION AIR. INPROPER AIR ADJUSTMENTS OR LACK OF AIR WILL CAUSE A WHITE TIP ON THE FLAME ... THAT IS CARBON-MONIXIDE !!! A CLEAN BLUE FLAME EMITTS CARBON-DIOXIDE AND IS NORMAL. IF YOU USED AN AIR-GUN TO PAINT, CHANCES ARE YOUR BURNERS HAVE A SLIGHT COATING ON THEM AND HOPEFULLY WILL BURN OFF IN TIME. TRY OPENING ALL YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS IN YOUR HOUSE ... AND TURN ALL BURNERS ON AND LET THEM BURN FOR AN HOUR. DO NOT LKEAVE SIGHT OF THE STOVE, BUT KEEP NEAR A OPEN WINDOW. NOTICE !!! MOST GAS COMPANIES WILL COME OUT AT NO CHARGE TO CHECK GAS, AND FOR CARBON-MONOXIDE.(C0) NOT (CO2).
