Yellow Flame

Hi,

I have bought a Swift Conqueror 580 Sal.

 

Whenever I light the gas rings on the caravan cooker. The flame is yellow on the tips.

 

I've exchanged the butane gas bottle for propane recently. Could this be the problem or is there something that I need to adjust ?.

Hi Martin,

 

I think this is natural & not something to be concerned about. Changing gas type has no effect on flame type as far as I recall.

Flame should be crisp and blue and not yellow . .. is it a lazy flame . .. ? Suggest you get your cooker seen asap by a qualified gas engineer . ....

OP said " yellow at the tips " GAS. I am pretty sure ours flames are blue, but with yellow at the very tips.

 

But I could be mistaken :blush:

First thing to do is clean around the burners, sometimes cleaning agent congregates there, take the cap off and brush with a stiff brush, next is the jets, don't poke at them, this can make the hole bigger, best to blow air through them. If it's still burning yellow, too much air is getting into the system so it would be best to get it checked by a certified "gas safe" fitter

Yellow is too little air rather than too much - remember the bunsen burners in chemistry? The only safe advice is to get it professionally checked.

Do you have the correct regulator fitted when you changed the gas type? Yellow flames will produce more carbon and carbon monoxide, so do get this checked out. Check the flame on your heater as well to ensure that isn't burning yellow as well.
