How to diagnose a propane BBQ flaming at control knobs


WARNING: this test can be dangerous; do it only if you know what you are doing!
I turned on my two burner propane BBQ. The left side worked OK but flames started coming out of the control knob (front area) on the right, and the right side burner was not lighting.
This is obviously gas leaking out of the front area. If the flames go out when you turn the knobs off then the leak is after the valves, controlled ny the knobs. If the flames stay on and only go out if you turn gas off at the tank then the leak is at the pipe entering the controls. In my case the flames went out with the controls, so I looked underneath. I slowly turned the knob down and saw that the flames (therefore the gas) was coming out of the air regulator/entry hole. I knew at once that the pipe going to the burner must be blocked. Sire enough, when I removed the burners I saw that an insect built a cocoon in the pipe. Clearing it solved the problem.

Orifices burner flame adjusted


Most burners have an adjustment under the knob. Pull off the knob and use a slender flathead screwdriver. Turn burner down to low, insert screwdriver into knob shaft and rotate internal screw until flame is at "simmer" height. Can adjust each burner separately this way.

No flame touching thermocouple


There must be a blockage on the inner flame ring as the gas is not getting to the thermocouple .

Rangemaster 110 gas cooker - RH Oven lights but doesn't heat up


Will the flame go out if you turn the control knob to the off position?

Sometimes gas cooking control knobs have two seperate types of control in the one knob. One control turn the gas on or off, one adjusts the variable quantity of gas allowed through a gap to your flame jets. Some control knobs can get gummed up and stick a little. The can be fixed by carefully taking apart the control knob, taking note of EXACTLY how everything goes back together and cleaning any gummed up bits. Then reassemble the knob and drizzle soapy water over the control to test for leaks. A leaky gas join blows bubbles and makes noise. Let me know if this fixes the problem.

Oven will not respond


The knob won't have any effect on the flame size.  The knob controls temperature.  If you're referring to the pilot light staying on and then the main flame not going on...that's another problem.  If the main flame will not go on, the assembly that controls the main flame is likely defective.  If the unit has a thermocouple, you might change it out first.  Sometimes, that's all that is needed and they're cheap.

My weber Baby Q grill has a low flame.


Agree with rjmbridge. I called the Weber support people and was told that there is a built in safety feature on the regulator that will cause the flame to burn at a low setting if the gas within the extension tube to the large tank and regulator is not allowed enough time to equalize. They suggested turning on the gas from the tank very slowly, allow about 2 minutes with the temperature control knob turned off, then turn the temp knob on and light. This worked for me.

Flame too low


Most probably dirty jets. If water was spuilled, there is a possibility of rust forming on some parts. Low flames are usually due to inadequate gas supply, due to dirty jets and burners. Often rust forms on the top burners in the little holes, causing slight blockage - clean the holes with a needle properly and check. Oshie
