Question about Heating & Cooling
Hi, propane gas is really hard on a furnace in causing a burner or burners to carbon up. Yes, there is gas coming from this orifice, what you need to do is grasp the burner from the front, lift the rear out of the slot it sets in as you pull forward, and take the burner out. Turn it over and clean it out. It may be full off rust and some carbon. You can do this, as it may take care of the problem. We have taken on some furnaces, if your home is heating fine on the 3 burners, and remove the orifice and just plug it off. Doesn't hurt anything at all, I believe its a 1/8 or 1/4' pipe plug. I have done this many times when the temperature rise is to high on a new unit, and the only option is to shut down one burner. No harm or adjustments needed. Try cleaning the burner first and make sure the tail end sets back in its slot. If this works, great, if not, plug it off and your set. Will save on your gas bill also.
