cleaning gas jets

I have a Goodman GMNT 060 forced air furnace. The middle burner flame is smaller than the other two, and also a different color. More purple/blue than blue. I think it's running on a lean mixture. My question is how to clean the jet without damaging it. Can I remove it and if so can I probe the orifice safely? If it's removed, then when replacing it, what sealant, if any, should I use?
Any help would be appreciated.

Most orifices are removable. It doesn't need any sealant on the manifold. You can use a small piece of wire, pin, small drill bit or a bristle from a wire brush. You just want to clean the opening without enlarging it.
