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!!

Left burner produces a normal blue flame, but the right burner produces a big yellow flame - how can I fix this?


Hi inomura...
Look at the left burner, pipe,air hole adjustment,etc because it is operating good.
You will see a difference to it compared to the on the right.
The right pipe, air hole, or the length the pipe that are iserted in the gas control valve is different from the left.
The yellow flame indicates that not enough air is getting to the flame getting to the right flame ignition point.
The left flame is nice and blue...normal, the right is yellow indicating that not enough air is getting to the flame ignition point...look to see if the air hole adjustment is different than the one on the left...there is something open more or less, improperly adjusted.
Once you have it adjusted properly the right flame will burn bright blue just as it does on the left.

Is there a conversion kit for Jenn-Air Model No: 720-0061-LP to convert from LP to Natural Gas?


Matt, I am not aware of one. Nor, whether it's approved or not, by the manufacturer, Nexgril.
My best advice is to contact their Customer Support Dept @ 800-913-8999

Keep in mind, it you are able to convert it, the gill will no longer get as hot as it does with propane.
Propane burns hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment.

I hope this helps you and Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Flame does not burn blue -- it is more yellow and sooty


From what you described, the burner needs to be removed and cleaned and the air shutter adjustment needs to be readjusted. After cleaning and replacing the burner, you can light the unit and then start adjusting the air shutter, until the flames are blue with yellow or orange tips.

Hope this helped you.

Should my traeger be 350 smoke and med it over 400? My friend said it's burning to hot is there a adjustment ?


Your question was rather confusing, but the generic answer for smoking any type of meat. poultry or fish, is 225 - 250 degrees F. Any hotter, you've gone from smoking to grilling. Smoking any type of food is "a low & slow process."

The adjustment for maintaining a certain temperature with a smoker is by opening or closing the air intake damper(s) Closing the damper(s) slows the intake air flow to the fuel and it burns slower and cooler. Opening the dampers does the opposite.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

One side of the grill gets hotter than the other.


Is this grill new? How many burners are on this grill? Typically if there is a pressure problem, the farthest burner from the regulator suffers. Looking at the photo of the grill, the tank and regulator are on the right, which would make the left side burner weaker. The flames can be even all around each burner, but if the burner on the right has slightly taller flames than on the left, even increasing the pressure won't "even" it out, it would just make both bigger. It could be just the nature of the beast. If it was feasible and the left and right burner were identical, it would be interesting to see if switching the burners would make any difference. Check to make sure each burner's air shutter adjustment is the same and adjust each for the bluest flame possible. Look for spiderwebs, bugs, or rust debris and blow out with air compressor, if possible. Let us know if you need more assistance. Good luck!
