    The cooker in my new house has very yellow gas flames, is this normal or can it be an indication of a problem?


  2. Is probably a problem, could just be dirty burners, or at worse rusted through burner supply tubes.

    Could be a problem - flame should be blue.

    Make sure the 'ring' is clean. Take it off and clear out all the litte slots so air can mix more freely with the gas coming out of the jet.

    Some cleaning products could affect it, and air freshener etc will have a temporary effect, this is from the droplets in the air, please dont anyone start spraying aerosols on the lit hob

    You do not mention if the flame is floppy or keen.If it is floppy with no visible cones whatsoever then you have a problem and I would advise you not to use the burner(s) until the problem is rectified
