    Seems to me this would be the mixture of air to the propane. On the gas stoves in the kitchens I work in there is a screw under the stove top to adjust this mix to get the flame to a nice blue with a yellow tip. Not sure if the pups have this as have not used our burners inside or taken the top off yet. Hope this helps.

    no this isnt a slight adjustment issue the flame is major, and dangerously out of control, had to get outside and shut off the tank valve, it seems like all the gas is coming through this one burner, didnt know if it had a packing in or what ever thanks, the stove knob didnt phase it.

    SOunds like your lines are slightly clog. Detach both ends and get an air compressor (high volume) and blow out anything in the line. If this doesn't work, then you have to replace the burner part of the stove. Make sure you use pipe tape on the connections when putting it back on. Let us know what you find.

    If you use tefflon pipe tape make sure it's the yellow tape made for propane.
