Question about RTO Atwood Water Heater - 6 Gal LP
You need to start by cleaning burner tube and pilot intake , sounds like spiders have probably spun a web in there. If flame is yellowish, it's not getting enough air. You can buy a barbecue burner brush, long and flexible, and run it through burner tube to clean out web, and if pilot is yellow as well, there is a small hole in side of fitting where it attaches up near burner that needs to be cleaned out with paper clip or even better, compressed air. After cleaning burner, adjust air shutter to get nice blue flame, with just a hint of yellow at tip. The idea there is to get blue flame, but not a roaring flame that is jumping off the burner. A spider web in there will usually allow propane through, but restricts air mixture, thus causing yellow flame (rich mixture) and soot to build up.
