Hello my name is***** wil assist you today. You did change the orfices also correct
But your issue is just now happening or has it been this way for 6 years?
If this is a new issue that did not happen before, then I would have to lean to the regulator or gas valve as your issue.
If the orfices were changed 6 years ago, then you should not have to change them, but if they were not which is what it sounds like. I would suggest changing the orfices, this happens way to often. The kit is only $24.92 part number GRLP3, you can order it from www.automaticappliance.com
I do not know about the gas valve, I would not believe it would know sides
Maybe only one side was changed? I really can not explain the reason one side is different.
At first i felt like the orfices may have been changed, but since you are not the original owner, I think I was assuming wrong. IF they had been changed then the only other piece suppling gas is the valve or regulator, depending on how this unit is set up. If the unit does not have the correct orfice it will give you soot, and yellow flames, both of which you have. I repaired a unit yesterday that only had half the valves changed. It is very common to see this issue with propane units.
If the orfices are the correct size the only other piece controling gas flow in this unit is the regulator. I can not tell you how or why a part is broke, but I can read a parts diagram and have a fairly mechanical mind. A wrong orfice size or wrong pressure with the only thing making the flames different sizes. As far as the soot the gas comes from the right side to the left, Maybe the closer to the regulator the burner is the higher the pressure allowing the soot to come out easier. Your first step is to change those orfices.
