Kenmore Range Burner Flames Red

Reference Model: 790.77483806

Problem: All 5 burner flames are red. The regulator has been replaced but the problem remains.


A number of different things could be causing the flames to be a yellow/reddish colour:

1) Is the customer running a humidifier?

2) Have you had the opportunity to take a gas pressure reading with a manometer to check for low gas pressure?

3) Very unusual, but contaminants from a gas source into the gas lines in the range?

4) Is the range running on LP gas? If so:

  1. Is the tank running low on gas?
  2. Is the tank regulator having an issue?

Finally, consider this: Are there other gas appliances (heater, water heater, dryer) in the home, are they experiencing the same issue?
