Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue to get is diagnosed correctly.

Did this just start happening and is it all of them?

I just found a YouTube video that shows blue gas burner flames turning orange when a humidifier that has Silver cleaning technology is used. I just bought such a humidifier, and have been using it. Apparently, there is silver residue in the air, which burns with a gold flame. When the humidifier is off for a while, the flames return to blue. This may be exactly what is happening.

Yes I was going to say if you are getting this on all the burners it is fumes in the air from painting staining or an fume causing it...that happens as it is burning the fumes in the air.
