You should test the wiring to see if there is any short that is causing the overheating.
If one knob only is getting hot, then the knob is probably faulty and need to be replaced.

I the all knobs are overheating because of heat coming from the grill, then is a bad heat insulation problem, better to call the service number listed on the owner manual and discuss the problem with Jenn Air in this case.

Here you find replacement parts for your model, in case you need to replace a knob.

The center burner knob on my jenn-air grill gets hot, the far left knob is off, and the outside cover is showing burning residue


From what you have described, it sounds like the offending burner tube is partially clogged and causing the burner flames for back fire and heat the control panel. To solve this, you will need to remove the burner and clean it and it's venturi valve thoroughly. You can accomplish this with a soft bristle brash grill brush or an old tooth brush.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Grilling!!

My knob was on fire today and fire beneath it melted knob sticking out


burner is clogged or faulty and allowing flame to "back up." If it is a Jenn-Air, call them to replace all burners. You may have a damaged valve(s) now due to the excessive flame being where it should have not been. I would not use grill until further inspection.

I have had the same problem before with same exact grill. The burners get clogged and the gas pressure backs up. I have had this actually split a gas valve and the plastic electronic igniters do not have a chance withe the head. Call nexgrill and get all new burners under warranty. This will solve the problem for a while. The latest burners that I received in Aug 2010 are 1/2 inch shorter and may solve this problem. You may want to buy new gas valves since the excess heat in this area may have damaged the valve. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, 2nd set of gas valves and 3rd electronic ignitor. May just recycle grill and get a Weber or go with charcoal.

Flare behind temperature knobs on jenn-air gas grill


This seems to be a problem for most Jenn-Air users. The burners are defective, rusted or clogged and allowing the flame to "back up." You most likely have a melted electronic ignitor as well as gas valve damage. The new burners that I received this week for my model 720-0061-LP are 1/2 inch shorter than previous versions. Time will tell if this fixed the problem. I would call Nexgrill and get all new burners and inspect the gas valve area for damage. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, glad they were free since I have a lifetime warranty on my model.

The grill never gets hot enough even with 3 burners lite.


Turn on one burner to start, once it is on, turn on a second burner. If the flame gets lower with two burners on, you need to replace your regulator.
