    It is an LPG fire so no conversion. I'm thinking it may be something to do insufficient air flow (draught) on the chimney after reading several other web sites, what are your thoughts?

    Thanks Tech17 for the info, sorry for any confusion it's not a range cooker, not sure where that came from, it's an open LP gas fire, Cannon Rhapsody LPG. I guess the same rules apply about the pressure regulating valve, but as it was purchased LPG then I would hope that bit would be correct, may be worth a look though, any other idea's?

I have a similar problem. My LPG cooker burner has suddenly turn yellow fire causing lots of soot - thats after I stopped using it for 3 weeks and changed a new gas bottle.
Don't wish to repair it though but just tell me if it is the burner (which is about 6 years old) or can it be the gas regulator (about 15 years old).

Well its my experience that ranges don't come lpg they are all made natural gas but you convert them to lpg after purchase now if the lpg conversion isn't done properly then they soot like crazy proper lpg converson is to change the spuds on the burners and to turn the orifice over in the pressure regulator do you still have your owners manuel if so consult it on converting gas range to lp then check to see if every thing was done right on the pressure regulater there is a square cap you take it off and there is a round part that on one side says lp on the other says ng this changes the pressure that the regulator as ng and lp operates at different pressures and the regulator has to be set for what you using like i said im not familiar with your brand or model but i do know the problem if the range did come ng then you need to make sure the conversion most ranges aren't lp because there is not that big a market for it read the plate on the back will tell you if it was made ng or lp serial plate on front may say also most of the time it is beside the bottom drawer on the range

Soot coming

Hi there. Check the gas pressure, it should meet the the nameplate required pressure, low gas pressure produce poor flame quality which results in soot formation.. The type of gas must also be compatible with the orifice sizes on pilot and burners. Check and clean as needed all soot formation on burners and fire tubes.

Deep fryer ignites but burner flames will not enter cylinders

Hi there.
Fire tubes may be clogged with soot. Have a technician inspect and clean the fire tubes for soot deposits/ build ups.
Check also if there is no air or ventilation directed on flue as it will push the flames back to the burners.

Normally soot is from a range that hasn't been converted for the gas type, like natural or propane. It may be set up for natural when you're on propane or visa versa. Has this range ever worked properly without sooting?

I have an indesit cooker both gas and electric and when am using gas it produces poor quality fire which causes soot onto saucepans. please help

Soot is unburned carbon in the gas and is caused by the flame being short of oxygen. The burner assembly may be dirty or your air adjustment is off. Once a burner starts to make soot, it gets progressively worse on till it is repaired. The first thing to try is a good cleaning. If that does not solve it, look for the air adjusters. They should be near where the supply gas line meets the burner orifice. open them a little at a time and watch the flame for change. More air should clean up the cabon. Also check the gas pressure regulator for proper adjustment. It could be set too high. Let me know how your doing, OK? Roger

It shouldn't be burning yellow and emitting soot at all;sounds like on of these possible causes-
(a)blocked burner airways(this can lead to yellow tipping and sooting on LPG powered appliances because insufficient air is getting through to the burner causing it;you can also get this effect on LPG barbecues say if dead insects or spiderwebs are in the burner pipes and airways after a period of storage),
(b)incorrect aeration being set when the burner was converted using LPG jets(too much gas and not enough air causing yellow flames/smells and sooting),
or (c) if you use propane cylinder gas a dicky or faulty regulator. I would get it looked at investigating all the possibilities I mention and taking action to correct this where necessary ie clearing the burner airways(if this is causing your problem), adjusting the aeration in the burners until you get a clear noiseless blue flame without any excessive yellow and sooting(but even after good adjustment you may find still get a very slight yellow tip without sooting at the top of the flame;this does happen with propane gas and there is a slight tendancy for this to happen more often with butane-butane tends to display very slight yellow tips on ignition increasing slightly as the burner warms up to full temperature) or if you use propane cylinder gas replacing the regulator if that is necessary.

Soot build up

Flame is Orange? If so, propane is "choked", not enough air. Remove burners, clean each burner hole with a same size metal dowel (coat hanger works well) flush out inside of burner with garden hose, hi pressure air through all holes to dry. Replace burners ONLY after also cleaning chambers and chimney (garden hose and long brush). Do not forget to clean pilot light area too.
Most Imperials are pre-set air intake. Check gas pressure if able, 3" NG, 10" LPG. Good Luck

The burners are shot. The heavy metal tubes with the holes that the burner flame comes out of, has burnt through. Instead of little rows of holes, there is at least one large hole in it. Unless someone has changed the gas>air mixture, you need new burners.
