Question about Kitchen Ranges
Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Yellow flame and black soot is an indicator that the flame tube is being starved for oxygen. Where the orifice injects the fuel at the base of the flame tube you should find a movable air adjustment shutter that is usually held in position by 1 screw. This screw may have loosened and allowed the shutter to close off oxygen to the flame. Below is a link to a page that shows an oven burner tube...click to enlarge image pn1015233 and observe bottom end. Rotate shutter any direction until a nice blue flame appears but is not "blowing" off the burner tube. Tighten screw to retain position.
