      The 2 small burners on our gas stove emit a whistling noise when they are on. I don't smell gas when they are burning and the flame looks ok so I don't think they are leaking gas. Anyone have any ideas? I've never used a gas stove that whistled. The 2 larger burners and the middle fish burner don't whistle.
      This is our stove:

      Is there a mixing-valve somewhere on the back/inside the range?
      What color is the flame? Should be blue with a deeper blue core(for Natural Gas).

      If I recall correctly the flame is blue at the top and blue/purple at the base.
      We're on natural gas. No clue about mixing valves.

      maybe the orifice is bad? they're easily accessible. you'll see 2-3 screws on the top of the burner which come out and you can access it. you need a nut driver or socket to get them out. BE CAREFUL! you need to put tape or something sticky on your socket since they will just drop down once they're loose and you'll need to take apart the whole stove to get to them......ask me how i know!

      Perhaps they put a set of Bubb Rub Whistle Tips on your stove.

      All four burners on my stove whistle slightly. First gas stove so I just figured it was the normal sound of pressurized gas coming through a small opening.
