I would suggest first lifting them out, give them good brush with wirebrush, check if holes are not clogged, check for any not surface damage, they ususally rust bit over on the surface and that is all.

If grill flame is working correctly, and grating have still "decent" thickness and is not falling to pieces, I would still use them normally.

Rust on the grate is usually caused by not using it and exposure to rain/water, as this grating is usually rather solid, surface rust will not affect it. If you have model with stainless graing - there should be no rust on stainless...

That is one of the reasons why you should not wash your grill after use! Fat from cooked food is protecting it from environment.

Hope this will help your worries at bay :-) Enjoy your grill!

Grill won't start


if your sure the propane tank is full, and the valve is open, (counter clockwise, and the control knob is on? you should not only smell it after 20 seconds, but if you put your ear near the grill you should hear a sound like air leaking.If you hear nothing and smell nothing, good chance there is a blockage in the line, or the burner holes are filled with drippings. First off, get a wire brush and scrub the burners where you see the small holes that the flame normally comes out of, then try the grill again, if still nothing (and your 100% sure the tank is full, the tank is on, and the control knob is on high) you may need to start taking apart the grill, looking for a blockage, many times its below the control knob where you will see an adjustable screen, spider webs and such will get in there and block the flow. Remember to not do any of that with the tank on the grill, remove the tank first.;

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!!

My food is covered in black smoke. The whole inside of the grill is also covered. I just cleaned gril with warm water and a brilo pad. (no soap) Could it be bad propane


You described exactly what never should be done... never use water to clean your grill.

Described symptoms indicate insufficient air supply to the burners, please remove burners and dry clean them with wirebrush and blow them with pressurised air if available to remove dust and rust particles, check if all holes are free of debris, water caused bit of rust to clog these holes. This cause insufficient air supply and in return, unburnt fuel cause sooth to appear on all surfaces, including food.

Grill after use should be just wipped off with old newspapers, fat prevent grill from rusting, when you start grill next time, you just splasch it with beer (no joke!) and whipe off excess. Acids and alcohols in beer will dissolve stale fat and clean whole grill area, beer as well will enhance flavour of barbecued food as well.

This advice is true not only for your particular grill model but for any grill or barbecue, regardless of mode of operation, be it propane, gas, electric, wood or whatever heat source you use.

Hope your next food will be delicious, that is recipy for my best teriyaki (marinade) for your meat:

Produce:
1 tablespoon freshly chopped ginger
1 freshly chopped medium size onion
2 cloves freshly crushed and chopped garlic
2 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup soy sauce (japanese or chinese!)
1/4 cup of water

Method:
Mix all ingrediens well, slice your met and add to mix, leave in cold for at least half hour (I prefer for about 4hours), skew and use as a shashlik marinade, or just as marinade for your grill steak, delicious anyway :-)!

Hope recipy will brighten your day.

I have a Viking Grill model VGBQ530 with cast iron burners that need replacement. I cannot find the exact model no. with these replacement burners however it appears that Viking now have a replacement made...


That is correct. Viking no longer supports the Cast Iron Burners. There is an aftermarket Burner VIKU1 that comes with mounting brackets to convert older Viking Grills that used a Cast Iron Burner to be able to switch to the stainless steel burner. The large bracket attaches to the center tube and has two screw holes and screws for mounting to the rear of the housing. The two smaller brackets mount to the two holes at the rear wall of the housing and create a ledge for the end of the two tubes to rest on.

Yellow flame


Hello,
You may have a rusted, clogged or damaged burner or venturi tube. With a flashlight, check for spider webs, wasp nests or dirt (mud) dauber nests in the opening of the venturi tube where it connects at each gas valve orifice. Clean it out manually or blow it out with air compressor. Make sure the air adjustment opening (on the end of the burner's venturi tube) has not been changed. If it's closed too much, it will be difficult to light and cause lazy yellow flames. If it's not clogged, the burner may just be old and rusted and the burner holes are not allowing very much gas through anymore. It's also possible the burner has rusted so bad, the burner holes have been enlarged, it is falling apart or has cracks along the burner seams. If so, replace the burner(s) immediately. It is unsafe to use. Your local propane co can usually order the parts you need and some will even do the work, if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself. Bring with you the Make, Model and Serial number of the grill, so they can order the correct parts for your specific grill. Also specify whether it's natural gas2_bing.gif or propane.

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.

One side seems clogged, no propane gets through.


More than likely you can fix it yourself. Remove the burner that's not working or if the burners are joined remove the entire burner unit. Check small holes around edge og burner for anything that may be clogging them. I've used a round toothpick or a small nail to poke each hole gently to make sure it's clear. replace the burner and try agin, it should work fine. In the worst case the burner needs replacing. This can also be done yourself. Purchase the burner from a large hardware store or contact Weber for a replacement.

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.
