My grill is falling apart.

I was cleaning my grill today and saw that in the inside where all the gas comes out (The tubes with all the little holes in it) is all crumbling and falling apart. Is there a way I can replace that?

    This seems to be a common problem with this grill. If I can't fix it, because they won't sell me the parts, what do I do?

I don't know in which country you reside so maybe you can or can't.

I have seen replacement burners in both Home Depot and Lowes 'home improvement centers.'
Your grill was probably not made by Frigidaire but one of the major grill manufacturers so you may need to do some research to determine what you need.

I bought a Tool Box Grill and put the whole thing together. The language on the instruction manual was extremely poor and I can't tell if I am missing a part. The adapter for the gas screws in nicely...


If the tube you're referring to is the burner tube, that is connected to the gas valve/regulator? The hole you're seeing is the the Venturi Valve. It mixes air to gas, which allows it to burn cleanly and have a blue flame, rather than a yellow flame.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Gas flame burning yellow?


Does your grill or pool heater have a yellow flame instead of blue? If your propane tank is not just about to run empty, then you can probably thank little spiders.
When a gas burning appliance sits idle for a week or more outdoors, spiders like to build nests in the venturi tubes (that's the tube with the holes in it where the combustion air gets sucked in). This changes the way the combustion air mixes with the gas and causes the gas to not burn completely. The incomplete combustion is not very hot, and so the flame appears yellow. This is not efficient. It wastes gas, is too cool for grilling steak and creates soot residues. This is very common on gas grills (bottled propane or piped natural gas). It also happens to pool heaters.
Fortunately, the fix is easy, and you usually don't need to take anything apart. Get a piece of stiff nylon string from a weed-wacker, about 12 inches long. With the burner cool, push the string into any hole in the venturi tube and spin it by rolling it between your fingers. The spider nests are sticky (made from the same stuff as spider webs) and they usually adhere to the nylon string.
Not sure what the venture tube is? It's going to be between the valve and the burner. The valve shoots a stream of gas into the venture tube through a pinhole nozzle called an "orifice". You can do a Google image search for BURNER VENTURI TUBE to see lots of different types. Every gas burning appliance uses some form of venturi tube.
Good luck. Al K

Can not light gas grill - Weber 8006 Have done all suggested thing such as full tank of gas, regulator checked, check for spider webs. No gas seems to be reaching burners.


This grill is definitely worth fixing. I have had similar problems with several weber 8006 grills. It is usually something obstructing or diluting the flow of fuel. If you have a new tank and your igniter is working (you have tried using a propane hand-held lighter, I assume) then it seems that it must be either the hose/gas line or the burner tubes. I would first check the main tubes and cross tube carefully for places that are rusted through. Holes can lower the pressure in the tubes and make them difficult to light (try just turning on and lighting the front burner). I would then clean the tubes at the spider trap/air vent end, which is nearest the propane tank. The spider traps, if you have them, are little plastic cages and the edges snap together. You can use a vacuum to gently clean out the tubes. If this does not work, you can buy or borrow a similar, but working hose. As they say, "it is always the last thing you try that fixes the problem".

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.

Gas grill, yellow flame how do we adjust this


I've got the same grill and was having the same problem - yellow flames coming out the front vents above the knobs. I removed the four burner tubes and they were full of soot and ash. The tubes were still in good condition so I simply knocked them with a screwdriver and a ton of black soot/ash came out. All the screws that hold them in place were so corroded they were falling apart so I had to drill them out. I cleaned everything up, put it back together with new screws and it works perfectly - nice blue flames!

Main burners on blue ember work fine but the crossover tube at back doesn't. the flame pops and only comes out the top, not the port holes


Grease buildup or food particles in end(s) of carryover tube(s).

Clean carry-over tube(s) with wire brush.

One burner has low flame


Try looking for webs back to where the burner tube meets the valve. Otherwise you need to remove burner tube to access back of valve to clean with a torch tip cleaner or compressed air, (remember to disconnect grill from gas source first) inside valve orifice.  Usually the back of valve can be removed with a wrench. Worst case you always get a new valve off internet if you can't resolve the plug. Hope this helps, good luck.

The gas is coming through, but does not light.


I have the same grill,and sometimes the same problem.First,with the gas off or completely disconnected,remove the grill grates and the flavor bars from the grill.Now you can see the heating element.A small wire brush will do the trick.Gently clean all the little holes in the element where the gas comes out.Then,with compressed air or even canned air(like what you use to clean a computer with)blow out the holes you just cleaned.Reassemble the grill and light.Should work fine after that.

Cant get the burners to stay lite.


Spiders like to create little hidey webs in the tubes of propane grills and stoves.

Take it apart as much as you can and blow compressed air through all of the holes and apertures. You can either take it to the gas station and us the $.25 air machine or buy a can of compressed air at your computer store.
