This may simply be a matter of having turned the gas tank on too fast. The hose/regulator that connects to the tank has an excess flow valve built into it. Close the tank valve and disconnect the hose/regulator from the tank, then reconnect it. Now slowly turn the handle on the LP tank. See if that solves your problem.

VIKING GRILL DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY

We have intermittent low gas flow to our Viking grill. We have replaced the burners and the regulator. It worked fine on Sunday but now today only the first burner lights (and it's low even though I...


Lynn, the problem lies with the gas regulator and the way you turn the tank ON. But it's readily solvable.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF & 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 valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set it on HIGH.
Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the exact same way.
Do all the flame heights look correct? If so, your solved the problem. Always remember to
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. They run about $30.00 at any hardware store or home center that sells grills and accessories. Simply take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Viking gas grill - when I turn the knobs to lite up one of the burners, it rushes out the gas with a loud hessing sound. also there are flame coming out from where the gas comes out and goes into the...


What you have described sounds like a clogged burner as well as the venturi valve on the burner. Your will need to remove the burner to clean it and the venturi valve on the open end of the burner, that goes over the burner orifice. Spiders like to build nest in them and clog them up. The venturi valve will look like two slots, cut in to each side of the burner, at the open end. It's function is to mix air with the gas, for proper combustion.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Grill is 6 yrs old, natural gas hard line to house burners have only very low flame (really low) do I need to replace burners or valves? if so what does it take?


Before you start replacing parts, let's try trouble shooting the problem, by asking a couple of questions.

Have you checked the gas line shutoff valve, on the gas line from the house to the grill, to make sure it's fully open?

When was the last time you thoroughly cleaned the grill (i.e. Removed and cleaned the burners, the venturi valves & the burner orifices) ?

If you answered NO, to both or either one of the above questions, that's where you need to start.
If you no longer have the Owners Manual for your grill, please advise me, who the manufacturer is and the correct model number . I may be able to provide you with one. Even if you end up needing parts, you will need the Owners Manual to get the correct part numbers.

Hope this helped in solving your grill problem. Please let me know.

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.

Low flame on burner...


Remove the burner and check the flexible tubes for kinks or blockages. The flexible tubes usually just slip over the backs of the valves. Spiders love to get in there and block them. Also check that the holes in the burners are not clogged. Be careful when reseating the flexible tubes to be sure that they are properly seated on the back of the valves. Failure to properly seat the flexible tubes can cause leakage there, and the gas can ignite at the back of the valves and not reach the burner. Be certain that the replacement burner is designed to use with your grill and the flexible tubes mate properly with the back of the valves.

Yellow flame on the rear of my burner


Yellow is a "reducing" flame meaning low oxygen, whereas blue is an oxidizing flame. There is not enough air mixing with the gas. Clean out the pipes and free the air intake holes on the first stage of the burner assembly.

Charbroil master flame gas grill the flame is either very high or very low


How old is the grill? The size of the holes in the burner is critical. As burners age, the holes rot out, and get bigger. The velocity of the gas exiting the holes has a large effect on flame size. New burner is the most typical solution.
