Tip & How-To about Cuisinart CGG-200 All Foods Propane BBQ Grill
WARNING: this test can be dangerous; do it only if you know what you are doing!
I turned on my two burner propane BBQ. The left side worked OK but flames started coming out of the control knob (front area) on the right, and the right side burner was not lighting.
This is obviously gas leaking out of the front area. If the flames go out when you turn the knobs off then the leak is after the valves, controlled ny the knobs. If the flames stay on and only go out if you turn gas off at the tank then the leak is at the pipe entering the controls. In my case the flames went out with the controls, so I looked underneath. I slowly turned the knob down and saw that the flames (therefore the gas) was coming out of the air regulator/entry hole. I knew at once that the pipe going to the burner must be blocked. Sire enough, when I removed the burners I saw that an insect built a cocoon in the pipe. Clearing it solved the problem.
