Question about Fasco Bradford White Hot Water Heater Exhaust Draft Inducer Blower # 239-42133-00
Why causes soot build up in burner chamber
Sounds like you're not getting enough combustion air.
If you have a draft motor or blower make sure it is running.

Tips for a great answer:
You need to get a Plumber or Appliance Tech to come out immediately and check the fuel to air ratio. You are not burning your fuel at the proper mixture. A blue flame is good, yellow-orange is bad.
Normally this is because the burner area is dirty or the pressure regulator may be set too high/low. The black marks are a sure sign that your ratio is too rich and it's just going to build up more soot and become unhealthy and dangerous.
