hi Maria, why are you suspicious that there is something wrong?

Step 1: If you’re concerned buy a carbon monoxide detector. This will help set your mind at rest.

The only way to check out if it’s burning properly is to have a gas safe engineer check it out, The flame should be mainly blue with a yellow tip, if it’s vey yellow it might not be burning completely, but there is no way anyone on here can advise.

typo above should have read 

The flame should be mainly blue with a yellow tip, if it’s very yellow it might not be burning completely, but there is no way anyone on here can advise.

here’s an article and another and a video

Hey @Maria48 

Spot on advice from @woz about getting a gas safe engineer to check your hob - this isn’t something Pure Planet would be able to look into for you. 

This site may help with locating a gas safe engineer to carry this out for you. :slight_smile:

But we have been talking about it! 

Some tips from a few PP folk. Yellow flames could be a sign of low gas pressure, or if the cooker has some dirt on it, it could be a blocked jet.
