Problem with Gas flow on multi burner gas grill

We have a Kenmore Model #141.16324 Gas grill and it worked well for a year but now when three of the burners are on and you go to turn on the 4th or 5th it shuts the gas off to the first three. Also we have a xtra burner on the side for pans and now when we try to use it it only comes out with one big yellow flame, it dosen't have the typical gas flame.

Is it safe to assume that the 4th and 5th burner has a poor flame also? It sounds like a fuel starvation issue. Have you tried replacing the regulator? The regulator is the some what square shaped thing that is on the black LP hose or on the manifold (the part that has the gas valves on it), if it is natural gas. Also try cleaning out the burners and the gas valve orifaces. These will sometimes get clogged with spider webs or food particles. Another thing that can cause a problem is if you have one of those LP gas guages on the tank. I found that it was blocking the gas flow. I tried re installing it but it still caused a problem.

Gas will not flow to burner to light grill?

The new style OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem

I have a Kenmore 4 burner grill that I purchased about 3-4 weeks ago. 3 of the 4 burners have nice blue flames and work very well but the left middle burner gets a huge yellow flame no matter what temp it...

does the same burner flame turn blue if other burners decreast in flow-with that burner on high and others low-is it still yellow? if so Gas Valve needs to be replaced.

Glas flow will almost shut down once i turn on the second burner

hi my name is mark, let me see if i understand your problem. you light the 1st burner and get a good flame. you light the 2nd burner with the 1st burner lite and it starves both burners of gas. if this grill is a lp grill and you have propane in the tank. the regulater is the problem.
