What model fridge do you have?

Why do you think the flame needs adjusting?

There's really no way to 'adjust' the flame. You most likely need to clean out the burner tube and orifice. The Service Manual has the cleaning procedure on about page 19.

You may also want to check the system pressure.

In the lower end 3-way fridges they put in popups, the say check for a predominately blue flame if not; jet needs to be cleaned.

the flame is not consistent, on my last camper, the hot water heater had the same type of flame problem and I was able to adjust the air to the flame with an adjustable sleeve and get a smooth consistent flame. I was hoping their would be some kind of adjustment here.

on a different reply... where are these jets that can be changed

There are no adjustments, but the orifice and burner tube can be cleaned.

I have the 2652 in my Mirada and uploaded the service and operation manuals on my web site (so I can find them when I'm traveling)
