I’d get a second opinion on that burner, or buy a manometer and check the LP pressure myself. It should be at least 11” wc WITH the LP system loaded about 50%, which means you ought to be running the furnace and water heater while checking the pressure.

I just noticed you said new baffle, so I removed that suggestion.

Seriously, check the LP pressure again. The flame can LOOK good, but still be too low btu-wise.

We’ve got a manometer and it reads 11.2 under load,

Yes! Obstructed burner was the culprit. Thanks so much.


You stated it was professionally cleaned. ????????????????? So, Burner obstructed or the Orifice? Either way, you did not get a professional cleaning done as these items are done for a LP operational complaint. Doug

Thank you ALL. It was the burner. One good cleaning and we are back in business. Esp thanks to the person who suggested taking a second look at the burner, which we hadn’t done since we had recently had it cleaned &inspected. Another case for doing your own work.
