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.

What type of gas are you using? If it is a natural gas stove and you are using butane, it will do that.

This is dangerous.
You should be able to stop it by unplugging the stove. The automatic spark requires electricity to work.
Unplug it and leave a comment with the make and model and I will assist you in finding a replacement.

Small gas leak smelled inside house from GE Adora (just 2 yrs old). Have moved stove and have put soapy water with paint brush on every connection including regulator...don't see any leak evidence...any...


You may have to use dish soap straight, do not use the brush. I use an old spray bottle and dish soap straight, not watered down, to find my leaks. Gas is a very low psi. Soapy water will not bubble up. It can and will just be pushed out of the way. Do not forget any other gas appliances in the house, hot water heater, stove, any thing that uses gas. Please check all. Recheck your stove and even any connections inside, on/off valve etc. Hope this helps Fixya up.

When one of the gas hobs is on ,it does not burn with a blue flame but a more yellow one .also black soot forms under the burner plate.it is on lpg


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.

My sharp microwave is under 6 months old. I was


It may be a shorted high voltage diode.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
