Have to adjust the piolot lights for the amount of gas coming out. U have too much gas coming out(yellow flame). On older gas ranges, there was a small screw between the piolot light & burners that had to be adjusted. (if this is a older model) have to turn the screw just a little at a time, till ur flame returns to blue on ur burners. Hope this helps.

I clean the burners and the ignite it is not working if i used a lighter the back tow burners will turn on but not the front ones


Sometimes when we clean the burners we get some debris or gunk into the gas outlets. I always take a toothpick and clean out the gas openings. Be very careful that you don't break the toothpick off in the opening. Once you've done this, use a lighter at the burner and turn on the gas. You should have a flame. Let the flame burn for about 5 minutes to burn off any more "gunk" that may be in there. Also, if your burners have covers, make sure they are in place before you light the burner.
Depending on the age of your range, you might need to clean around the igniter. Some are concealed and you can't reach them. Those that are not concealed can be cleaned by wiping with a soft, dry cloth.
I hope these suggestions help you get your range working again. If they do, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

Whirlpool model SF3020EKQ3 was converted to LP oven lights nice blue flame but flame is very small oven does not get hot enough


HI,
If your able to adjust the orifice hood to the oven, then turn it counterclockwise unit the burner is full and minimal yellow flickering is present. If you go too much, this can be deadly can cause carbon monoxide to admit into the kitchen during use. I have found adjusting while the burner is on is the easiest way to make sure it is correct, use caution....
I hope this helps

When stove is on a yellowish orange flame comes from burner.This has not occured until now. We own this viking oven for about 10 yrs without any issue whatso ever. Can you help to resolve this issue


You need to replace the burner if you want blue flame. Since its 10 years old, it's about time to replace the burner with similar size and shape. Old burner have big hole causing yellowish flame compare to new one.
I hope I solve your problem.

All 5 burners are burning orange-yellow flames.


According to this thread:
http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r23696179-Gas-stove-orange-flame
It sounds like it is impurities in your (or more likely your suppliers) gas line. If it goes away but reoccurs semi regularly, then I would guess this is what it is.
If it is happening all the time, or you are concerned about it, call your gas company and ask them about it. I am sure they havve heard of the problem before.
Good Luck!

As far as I can see it, if you want to use your cylinder gas then you will have to collect it yourself if there is no company in your area that sells LPG. To use pipes gas you will have to change the burner mixture setting on your cooker otherwise is may not burn properly.

The gas stove fire burns with black soot and is only 1 month old


Gas should not burn with soot, if it does it is dangerous as poisonus fumes will be produced as the air/fuel mix is wrong.
Call a qualified gas engineer to check out the installation and make it safe.

Hi, got old Eurolec Gas oven/hob. Hob lights up fine. Was cooking in oven all morning, no probs. Tried to light oven for evening meal & gas will not stay lit, goes out once ignitor & temp' dial...


Hi, your thermocouple is faulty, it is the little probe like thingy that sticks up into the pilot flame. It is there for safety purposes, detects flame and holds a valve open magnetically to allow the gas to pass through. Try giving it a clean with a scourer, sometimes works, or your pilot flame is not big enough, could be low on gas or unit needs a service Kristian KJ Tech
