Question about Grilling

1 Answer

The rear burner only partially lights. The one end has flames coming out, but for about 4/5 of the length of that burner there are none. Also, the narrower tubing going from the front to the rear burner has cracked and separated. What do I do?

Only left side of burners working


If you have the Cal Flame burners that are straight, cast brass burners, there is a slot under neath the burners on the back end of the burners. This slot allows the flame to move from the left side of the burners to the right side of the burners. This slot in the burner will corrode shut and not allow the flame to move from the left to the right side. Sometimes you can scrape out the corrosion, and sometimes you can not. If you can't get the slot open, then you have to replace the burners. Cal Flame burners also have a reputation for warping.

Burner lights. Flame pulls away from burner and sensor. Unit shuts off


The first thing I would do is check burners to make sure they are clean. Often if rust particles or carbonsoot come loose from inside of the heat exchanger they can partially clog burner opening which causes increase in gas pressure to fewer ports.This can make the flame roll out of burner compartment shutting off flame rollout switch.With burners off turn thermostat down so that furnace won't come on and inspect burners. If they are dirty you can use shop vac with crevice tool to clean most of them. If needed the burners can be removed for cleaning. Usually all you have to do is raise up on the back end of burner and slide it backwards to clear air shutter and burner orifices and then remove. Clean one at a time and put them back in the same position they were in.When they are all back in furnace reset flame rollout and check furnace.
If burners are not dirty then I would have service tech. check gas pressure and repair as needed. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Flame goes out when fan kicks on


If the flame lights all the burners within 2 seconds but does not stay on, you may need to clean the flame rod found at the farthest end of the burner box. It will be located at the end of the box that lights last. It will be a probe that is in the flame of the last burner. If it has carbon on it or scale, take an old tooth brush and scrub it. Check the wire connected to it and follow that wire back to the circuit board and check that connection.

Gas Grill Burners with yellow flames coming from beneath them


the flames should be blue and the burners clean. check gas pressure and the air mixture dampers. touch air will give you the same effect. if the burners are clean, it is the mixture. as far as the slots in the bottom. i have not seen that. but i work on commercial ranges.

I have a Intertherm furnace model MMHA with United tech controller 1018 HSI. Flames starts up , fan runs but flame goes out and restarts after a few minutes. Keeps doing this, I don't see a proof of flame...


Maybe. There has to be some sort of flame sensor with this HSI module. Look on the wiring diagram for where it may be. If this model has a pilot that starts before the burners, it may be part of the ignition electrode or glow bar. If the burners just light, look at the far end of the burner box to make sure the flame is traveling down the entire length and hitting the sensor. If you find it, clean it off with a small tooth brush. Blow out the flame rail where the flame travels from burner to burner. Clean off the pilot assembly if it has one.

Oven has small explosion igniting and going off. says tj


A few years back I helped a neighbor with this same problem in a forced air, gas fired, "horizontal" furnace in his attic.

After having him cycle the thermostat a couple dozen times while I watched through the opening in the side of the furnace, I finally figured out what was happening.

First, there were about 6 cast iron burners [about 14 inches long with two rows of gas holes along the length]. These burners were parallel to each other and oriented perpendicular to the long axis of the furnace.

The gas was fed to the ends of the burners with a pipe manifold. The standing pilot light was at the center between burners 3 and 4. Due to the spacing distance between the burners, the pilot light was too far from even burners 3 and 4, the flame could not "jump" to ignite them, or any of the other burners. The manufacturer had installed a thin sheet metal "tent" which ran from the gas entrance end of burner 1 to burner 6, and was about 2 inches above the burner, AND the pilot light.

The standing pilot was on all the time. When the gas control valve turned on, gas began to come out of all the burners at the same time. Naturally it came out of the gas supply manifold ends of all the burners.

The "tent" captured that gas coming from the burners and "filled" up to over the pilot light which ignited the gas at that point, and the flame would propagate along the tent to ignite the gas coming out of all of the burners.

In my neighbors case, the tent had somehow become dislodged so that it did not cover all of the burner ends. For those burners which it did cover [including the pilot light] it caused the burners to light properly.

For those burners who's ends were not covered, and who's gas could not be captured, they would NOT ignite simultaneously with the others.

As these burners WERE feeding gas into the combustion chamber, the gas "envelope" would spread until it reached the nearest flame ignition source, at which time the entire "bubble" of gas would ignite with a minor boom [actually a low energy explosion]. Flame would momentarily shoot out of the burner chamber opening, and from that point the furnace would operate normally until the next restart cycle.

Although there could be several causes, I suspect that the symptoms you describe are the result of DELAYED IGNITION of some or all of the main burners.

IF this is the problem, then the solution is to clean all the burners [including the burner outlet holes in the ignition ends of the burners], clean out the burner compartment, AND properly adjust the orientation of whatever system [you have to evaluate how it works from analysis of YOUR furnace] your furnace has to ensure all burners ignite as close to the same time as possible.

When operating properly, the ignition should be a smooth transition, burner by burner, from the pilot to the farthest burners. In other words. the ignition will "flow" from the pilot outward to each adjacent burner until the farthermost ends ignite last. This usually doesn't take more than one or two seconds at the most.

Unless you are an experienced handyman, and understand this analysis and instructions, I strongly suggest that you engage the services of a professional furnace technician.

Weber Genesis Gold B Grill Problem


Could be partially clogged burner openings (jets).
Remove the cooking grates and the flavorizer bars. Obtain a BRASS brush (like used to clean white-wall tires) and brush the burner tubes from side to side and up and down along their entire length to remove all corrosion from the jets. Also the cross-over tube.
Before replacing the flavorizer bars and cooking grates, ignite all burner tubes and check to see the flames are all of about equal length and intensity.
If this isn't the problem, check the screens at the right-side ends of the burner tubes to be sure they're not clogged.
If the burner tubes are all clean and some don't ever ignite, the problem could be in the valves/manifold.

Burner does not hold its flame on a Feather 442 stove


IF THE FLAME IS LIFTING OFF THE BURNER, THERE IS TOO MUCH AIR IN THE MIX. LOCATE THE END OF THE BURNER WHERE THE FUEL ENTERS THE BURNER. THERE SHOULD BE AN ADJUSTMENT HOOD THAT CAN BE MOVED TO PARTIALLY BLOCK THE AIR INTAKE. THIS WILL REDUCE THE AIR MIX AND SHOULD MINIMIZE THE FLAME LIFTING OFF THE BURNER.
ON SOME SEALED BURNER COOKTOPS, THE MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDS PLACING A PAN ON THE BURNER AFTER LIGHTING TO MINIMIZE FLAME LIFTING.

IF THE FLAME GOES OUT WHEN SET ON SIMMER,
THERE IS AN ADJUSTMENT SCREW IN THE SHAFT OF THE VALVE ON SOME MODELS. REMOVE THE KNOB TO GAIN ACCESS TO IT. YOU WILL HAVE TO OBTAIN A SMALL SHAFTED FLAT BLADE SCREWDRIVER TO MAKE THE ADJUSTMENT.
