    I have exactly the same problem but don't have a clue how to adjust the setting you're on about - where can I find it? Do I need to pull the cooker out? What sort of thing am I looking for?

Hello
Tha sounds to me like the air mixture nedds to be adjusted on the stove, It's not difficult to do, just rotate it until the flames loose the yellow or your pans will be stained with soot.
The should be by the fittings (convertion fittings), you know?
LP Gas to Natural Gas or Natural Gas to LP Gas.
Hope this help

Yellow flame


The problem is with the orifice leading to the burner. If it is not centred then you will get yellow flame. Or you are impeding the flow out of the burner and it is not mixing properley. I would pull the burners apart and make sure everything is clear and the orifice is centred.

LP gas stove top . burners want turn down to low. Only medium and high flame work on burners.


Has this just recently happened? Check the knobs aren't cracked sometimes the brass spindle inside the knob is not gripping to turn it right down, also check your l p gas pressure it should be 2.75 kpa.
if the flames are big and yellow it's getting too much gas, not enough air.

I have a new gas hob which is making the bottom of my pans black like soot?


You must have an improper air/gas ratio. To adjust the shutters you simply open or close them a hair till you get a beautiful blue flame. Improper flame is yellow, good flame is blue. 9916a1c.jpgThis gas conversion training manual shows where to adjust

Flame on gas hob not correct.


I'm not sure what you mean by a proper efficient flame. I just recently went through an experience I'll relate to you here. I purchased a GE Profile dual fuel range. I can get more specific if you'd like but here's the point. The highest burner on the range was rated at 17000 BTU's. A friend recommended the range to me and sang it's praises. I took delivery of my new toy and couldn't wait to get a pot on the stove to start cooking a long wait for pasta. Twenty minutes later I was finally seeing bubbles! I spilled the water out and measured 12 cups of water into the pasta pot at room temperature. That's three quarts of water. 20 minutes to see bubbles and never would it come to the expected "rolling boil". My experience has always been with electric ranges and I am new to gas but 20 minutes? Something had to be wrong, right? Wrong! Much research later I've found it is common for natural gas to LP conversion stoves to lose a good deal of their oumph when converted. GE as it turns out is one of the most notorious for a serious degredation in BTU output. After exploring GE's site I found that this same stove running under LP gas is rated(for the highest burner) at 11000 BTU's! No wonder I couldn't boil water! Back to the store it went and I am still in search of a stove that will meet my needs. Don't know if this will help you or if this is the same issue you are dealing with but maybe just maybe. Good luck!

Burner/Flame


Hiya .. this could be due to a number of problems...... has the burner ever worked correctly?
Is the behaviour with only one ring?
1. If not... then it could be that the pipework to the hob itself has not been recuced sufficiently enough in pipe diameter to the regulator far enough back ...
2.The regulator is faulty... in which case it can be replaced... however consider the cost of a new regulator and labour to fix it .. against the cost of a whole new hob... which should include a regulator. Is the hob still under warranty... if so use that .. but you will normally have to provide some proof it has been fitted by someone suitably qualified.
3.the regulator may never have been fitted, which is dangerous and bad practice.

Either of these scenarios... please ensure that you use a suitably qualified gas engineeer... I dont wish to be alarmist... but gas leaks and faulty gas appliances do cause unnecessary deaths...and is a silent killer.

Creda 4 burner, converted to LP


Your flame is perfect if it's just the very tip that is yellow or white. All burners should be adjusted this way, on highest flame.

there is a bypass screw on each gas valve. adjust so flame is reasonable when each burner is turned to low
