Default gas cooker problem

"jon" jonajunaAThotmailDOTcom wrote in message

i have a small problem?! i have one of those briefcase type fold up camp
stoves, the type with 2 rings on top and a grill under.

have used it frequently for several years with no problem.

this weekend though we were about to use both rings to cook (the kettle

needs the one!!) but the flame nearest the gas inlet produced a big and
yellow flame...not the nice clear blue one we are used to (and was getting
on the other ring no problem)

now from what i can recall from school!!! its the addition of oxygen that
causes a gas flame to burn so.

so do i take it that i have got a hole or split somewhare after the gas
control for that ring (presuming that if it was air getting in elsewhere

would affect both rings)

if this is the case anyone know of where im likely to get it fixed?
or is it a case of get a new one, itll be cheaper than repairing it?

thanks in advance

looking forward to some educational replies after reading the other post

about gas!

replace the WORDS to make it work

There's a venturi behind the burner (between the burner gas tap and the
burner) which is where the air/gas mixing is done. If the venturi gets
clogged with grease/food etc. the gas/air ratio will be affected causing the
yellow flame you see.

Check/clean as necessary with soapy water should do the trick.
