Question about Kenmore 632 sq. in. 16324

1 Answer

Burner adjustment I just replaced a gas manifold and the grill seems to work o.k.; however, there are some yellow flames (rather than blue) flaming up on some of the burners. There is an adjustable "air gap" where the gas valve enters the burner tube. What is the appropriate "gap" setting for this part ? or is this not causing the problem ? Any help will be appreciated !

How do I adjust the side burner on my kenmore gas grill?


You should find an air mix adjustment for that burner. Try opening it a little, to allow more air. A yellow flame indicates too rich a mix.

The adjustment is probably behind the knob for that burner.

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.

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.

I have a Kenmore 4 burner grill that I purchased about 3-4 weeks ago. 3 of the 4 burners have nice blue flames and work very well but the left middle burner gets a huge yellow flame no matter what temp it...


does the same burner flame turn blue if other burners decreast in flow-with that burner on high and others low-is it still yellow? if so Gas Valve needs to be replaced.

Yellow flame on the rear of my burner


Yellow is a "reducing" flame meaning low oxygen, whereas blue is an oxidizing flame. There is not enough air mixing with the gas. Clean out the pipes and free the air intake holes on the first stage of the burner assembly.

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.

Burner Adjustment.


You may be running lean. Add air until you have as much blue flame as you can get. Often, however, this is impossible on worn burners.
