New Suburban stove has yellow flame on one burner

So this stove/oven has sealed burners with a jet directly underneath a short 1 inch tube leading straight up to the burner. This stove also has a front burner that is 9000 BTUs and the rear two are 6500 BTUs. The rear burners are perfect, it is the front 9000 BTU burner that has yellow tips to the flame and if you turn it all the way up it starts to soot.

I am wondering if the wrong jet was installed in the front burner. If I turn it way down it almost turns all blue but then is a pretty low flame. Any thoughts? Other than the jet there is no adjustment and the burner itself is perfectly clean.

Yellow flame

Look for an air inlet on the tube to open a little to allow better combustion.

I had that issue a few years ago and it was spider web in the air intake tube

I had that problem with a cheap Suburban two burner. Adjustments made no difference. Our aluminum pots now have a coating of soot.
I replaced the Suburban with a Furrion three burner last winter. Now the soot is burning off and boiling a pot takes a fraction of the time. Good riddance.
