If it's burning orange, it could be dirty rings, but if it's more yellow, it's generally not the rings that are the problem, but some obstruction in the manifold tube, like spiderwebs. Sure, take the rings off and take a wire brush to them. It's easy. Just put them back on in the same order, i.e., flat/wavy/flat/wavy/flat, etc. While you have the rings off, run a brush through the manifold tubes. I use a trombone brush (compressed air won't blow out the cobwebs). Some people clean the tubes with a multi-stranded electrical wire, frayed on one end to catch the cobwebs. After running a brush through, blow out the loosened dust before reinstalling the rings.

Sounds like something salty or similar probably was spilled on the burner in the past. I doubt that there is any air/fuel flow blockage issue as both burners probably would be having the same coloration as both burners get the same air/fuel mix.

I would try what Stewart mentioned above. If the stove was sitting for any length of time you probably have a insect nest or something in there. Its a simple procedure to do. Also remember, when you open a auxiliary burner keep good pressure in the tank. That will help too.
