What you need to know about gas stoves
Gas stoves are popular with homeowners not only because of their practicality but also because of their efficiency and precision during cooking. However, many common problems can hamper your ability to cook with a gas stove, so it helps to be aware on what to look out for.
Too greasy? To avoid a grease fire, always wipe down and clean the surface of your gas stove. Burners should be cleaned regularly as well to ensure fuel efficiency by using less gas on a lower flame.
Too noisy? If you hear a popping sound, then the burner could be wet from a spillover or from cleaning. If what you hear is hissing or sputtering from your flame, it means that your gas burners may not be operating efficiently. This is caused by too much or too little air being supplied to the flame. It is best to call the pros to deal with this kind of situation.
Too yellow? Observe the flame from your burner. If it burns blue, this means your gas burner is properly adjusted. But if your burner gives out a yellow or orange flame, also called sooty flames, this means you could have incomplete combustion happening. This could lead to carbon monoxide build up in your home. Debris or spilled matter could be clogging your burner ports, make sure to clean them or contact a qualified technician to check it out.
