Re: Cannon Rhapsody LPG Gas open Fire sooting up of...

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

Why is there black soot on gas stove burner? What can be done to resolve this issue? Can it be cleaned or does it need to be replaced with new burner valve?

I recommend you have gas company or appliance service. Gas is nothing to "fool" with. It sounds like a fuel (gas) air mixture problem. Have you "cleaned" underneath the burner recently and by chance not re-installed the burner properly? Or someone else? Double check. If you see something obviously wrong, correct it. Otherwise as above.

I noticed soot in my lp gas oven that had been clean. concerned when it started to ruin my food I decided to run the self cleaning cycle again. My whole house filled with toxic soot. My eyes were on fire...

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?

Black soot all over burners and pots can not ajust sleeve

chanciec sounds like the unit isn't set for the proper fuel. Usually see this when natural gas unit is set for propane. See if the installation directions show converting the gas and adjusting the burners. You are running with too much fuel and not enough air. Since You haven't said what brand or type of range, if sealed burner, the venturnes in the center of the burners are what sets the air adjustment. Hope this at least tells you why this is happening.
