Hi, Sorry but nobody wants to give bad news. There is a tube that comes from the control knob to the orifice that controls the amount of gas to the burners, my guess without being able to look at it is that the orifice broke at the connection to the tube and the flames are shooting back toward the knob. However it is possible that the venturi opening ( the screened part on the burner tube that sets on the orifice ) became dislodged. Either way you need to remove the grate, remove the burner assembly and then look ( under the cart from the back) at the tube and orifice for damage. You do not indicate how old any of this is and they do rust out. Parts are available but you have to determine if based on age and damage you want to replace any of it or all of it. If you inspect it and find something that you think you can fix you can get back to us for more help. If it is as simple as the dislodged tube and the parts are OK, reseat it and check it out. I wish you the best of Luck!

Your Question Preview Fire Magic A790i Logo Problem with A790i Firemagic a790i flames pop and knobs get hot Posted by Author imageGuest on 3/24/2013 Details not getting good pressure to all 3 b


It sounds as if the burners may not be properly seated on the valves. Instead of all of the gas flowing into the burners, some of the gas is escaping behind the front panel and creating a fire behind the front panel which would heat the valve shafts and melt the knob inserts. This call also be caused by partially blocked burner venturi and valve orifices.

Check to make sure the end of each valve is completely inside of each burner.

I have a 3 knob grand gourmet grill with a newer burner, I light the grill with the first knob, turn on the second knob, turn on the third knob and the flame goes out, any suggestions?


To troubleshoot & solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

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!!

I have a 3 burner CaptnCook gas grill. The middle burner has a single flame when I try to light but does not light the whole burner row, just right at the front only. The right and left will not light at...


The problem lies with the grill's regulator and how the gas tank valve was opened.

To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light

Why do flames shoot out behind the control knob on my aussie gas grill


More than likely, the venturi valve is clogged by a spider or spider web. You will need to remove the burner to check for this and clear them out. The venturi is the part of the burner that fits over the burner orifice. It may be 2 slots cut into both sides of the burner tube or a series small holes that are not burner port holes.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa. Cheers...

Viking grill burner is clogged and fire is shooting out of knob. How do I clean my grill from excessive grease.


Is it still under warranty? I'd call Viking or a qualified repairman to fix it. If your burners are clogged, the flames should be coming out the venturi tube and flaming towards the gas valve knob. If the flames are coming out of the gas valve itself, then it will need to be regreased. If the burners can be removed without too much trouble, soak them in the sink with hot water and dishwashing detergent. Be sure to remove the knobs, so no one turns the gas on without the burners connected. If it's difficult, call a repairman.

1st burner goes out when 2nd burner is turned on


I had the same problem. They original regulator and hose were poorly designed for this model. There isn't enough room underneath without crimping the hose. I bought a standard regulator and shorter hose combination a Home Depot for about $20. It makes a 90 degree turn coming out of the tank and does not kink the hose.

It was worth the $20.
