The flames on two of my burners are irregularly shaped (higher on one side) and orange. This occurs at medium to high heat and leaves residue on my pots and pans. At low heat, the flames appear to be even. The two burners in question are part of the same burner module, and it happens whether the module is on the left or right side of the stove. I believe this means that the problem is with the module or burners rather than something else in the stove. Is there something I can adjust, or do I need to replace parts in the burner module? If the latter, which parts do I need? Thanks
Answer Hello Wes,
You may need to adjust the air shutter on the module. This controls the amount of air flow to the burner and will affect the flame size and the lift of the flame from the burner. The flame should not lift off of the burner. Simply loosen the screw and turn the shutter to close the shutter a bit and retighten the screw. You will have to play with it a bit to find the correct setting. If this still does not adjust properly, you may need to turn the hood, (brass piece the burner fits onto), clockwise to decrease the gas flow to the cartridge. You do not want to leave it like that since the orange flames are an indication that all of the gas is not burning and this will put carbon dioxide into the room, which is a poisonous gas that, without proper ventilation, can turn deadly.
