Re: Gas leaking behind the handles along perforated pipe

Spiders get into the gas line and spin their webs causing the gas flow to be interrupted. Take the burner off and carefully remove the web. Replace the burner and it will work just fine.

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 full propane tank. I bbq'd about 3 weeks ago, same full bottle. Grill will not light. Good spark at ignitor. Used lighter and lit for a few seconds with low flame on high. No other burners will...

You may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Turn it back off, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn the valve back on. Light one burner at a time and turn to low before lighting the next. If you are hearing and smelling gas with the tank on but all grill knobs off, don't use the grill. You may have a leaking grill valve, regulator or hose. If you are only smelling gas with the knobs on, it's possible you have a clogged burner or orifice from bug nests, spiderwebs, etc and need to clean it out first. Hope this helps. Douglas

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.

Flame appearing from in back of front panel

This is usually a regulator problem, or a gas leak where the regulator line attaches to the back side of the knobs. Test for a gas leak first. You can use a mixture of water and liquid dish/hand soap. Saturate the area where the hose connection is, turn on the tank, but leave the knobs in the off position and do not hit the igniter. If there is a leak, you should see some bubbling where it is. If there is no leak, turn the tank off, open the valves (turn the grill knobs on) and bleed the gas out of the lines. Once it has sat for a few minutes with the knobs in the "high" position, turn them off. Then leave them off and turn on the tank, followed by one of the knobs and ignite the grill. see if the flame went away. I've seen this happen where there is not enough pressure in the line. Turning the tank off, the knobs on, bleeding the line, then closing the knobs and opening the tank and letting the gas build up pressure in the line before turning the knobs back on or trying to light the grill should resolve it.

Flare behind temperature knobs on jenn-air gas grill

This seems to be a problem for most Jenn-Air users. The burners are defective, rusted or clogged and allowing the flame to "back up." You most likely have a melted electronic ignitor as well as gas valve damage. The new burners that I received this week for my model 720-0061-LP are 1/2 inch shorter than previous versions. Time will tell if this fixed the problem. I would call Nexgrill and get all new burners and inspect the gas valve area for damage. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, glad they were free since I have a lifetime warranty on my model.

Gas does not flow when you turn on gas knob when you turn on the gas valve on the tank and then turn the knob for gas to get to the grill, just before you hit the ignighter no gas comes out

make sure there isn't a designated burner for lighting. sometimes there will only be 1 burner the grill will light. start with all them off, turn on the tank. the grill will have a little picture of a flame next to the burner knob. turn it to high and try lighting

Gas grill prob.

Barbecue Repair Parts Don't let spiders crawl into your venturis, yearly maintenance part are available. 27897.jpg?qlt=80&cell=325,325&cvt=jpeg If you notice that your Barbecue is getting hard to light or that the flame isn't as strong as it should be, take the time to check and clean the VENTURIS. 27898.jpg?qlt=80&cell=325,325&cvt=jpeg In some areas of the country, spiders or small inserts have been known to create "flashback" problems. The spiders spin webs, build nests, and lay eggs in the BARBECUE VENTURI TUBE (s)obstructing the flow of gas to the BURNER. The backed-up gas can ignite in the venturis behind the control panel. This is known as a flashback, and it can damage your Barbecue and even cause injury. To prevent flashbacks and ensure good performance the BARBECUE BURNER and VENTURI assembly should be removed from the grill and cleaned before use whenever the BARBECUE has been idle for an extended period of time.

Also, when you lite the BBQ, make sure that you turn the gas on at the tank, wait a couple of minutes and then turn the knob on and light the burner. This is to make sure that the pressure is regulated and sufficient prior to lighting.

Hope this helps!

Sideburner for Thermos Stainless Steel Gas Grill (Mod # 461262006)

It sounds like the orifice is bad. An orifice is a small metal part that has a small hole in it. This regulates the gas coming out to the burner. It is at the tip of the pipe that brings gas to the burners, before the flame. I don't know what the hell the garggley noise is. Unless the bottle is upside down, and you are getting liquid, I don't know.

Gas coming out near burner knobs

The issue is with the valve that is connected to the knob. it is poorly designed. To fix it take off the lid assembly and remove the front black cover that covers the knobs. remove the almost diamond shaped metal piece that the knob shaft runs through. put on your gas tank and adjust the valve to a position where no gas comes through.. might be lucky or you will have to replace that valve.
