SOURCE: flame from behind knob

no these are a one time fail valve because the reason there is a flame is the packing has came out of the valve. Most of these valves may be purchased from either westlake hardware, home depot, or wal-mart.

You should test the wiring to see if there is any short that is causing the overheating.
If one knob only is getting hot, then the knob is probably faulty and need to be replaced.

I the all knobs are overheating because of heat coming from the grill, then is a bad heat insulation problem, better to call the service number listed on the owner manual and discuss the problem with Jenn Air in this case.

Here you find replacement parts for your model, in case you need to replace a knob.

The tube is worn out and probably has a large hole in it. Replacement is easy.

SOURCE: Main Burners completely rusted out; control knobs to burner...

Get replacement burners and preheat them once. Then paint them with high temp enamle paint to withstand the temps of the grill. The burners are regular untreated steel and not the stainless that one would expect. Painting them will prevent them from rusting out after 2 years. Just make sure you temper them once before you paint them as they will expand a little. Then paint them and enjoy!

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.

I have a 3 knob grand gourmet grill with a newer burner, I light the grill with the first knob, turn on the second knob, turn on the third knob and the flame goes out, any suggestions?


To troubleshoot & solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and 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 tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always 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. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

I have a 4 burner elite, 9 years old. How do I adjust the flame? The knobs do very little. The flame is way to hot. Is there an adjustment in the valve?


Are the knobs just turning on their shafts? Or are the knobs and shafts turning? Hopefully, it the first thing, because it is repairable by replacing the knobs. Which can be ordered directly from BBQ's Galore.

It that's not the case, then ALL of the burner valves will need to be replaced. As, there is no adjustment. replacing all he burner valves is not an easy task. It's similar to rebuilding the head of the grill. If it's as old as you say, you'd probably be better off replacing the whole grill with a newer model.

I need to know how to remove the stainless steel burners and replace them.


Call Weber to receive free warrenty burners. Have model and serial number found inside one of the doors on your grill. I just received them in the mail about a week ago and just replaced my burners today. Here is what I did.

Remove the grates and burner heat deflectors. There are 4 screws on the knob panel, 2 on the left and 2 on the right. Remove the screws and pull back about a inch or two. I found it helpful to open all the doors a bit to rest the panel on them. The burners should remove easily once this is done. Replace the burner tubes and be sure tubes have holes facing up on the one side for correct heat distribution. When placing the knob panel back on, make sure that burner tubes go onto the gas control knob correctly. Replace screws on the knob panel.

****Get a wire brush about the size of a tooth brush to clean the starter, the thing that makes the spark to start the flame.****

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.
