Your burner is clogged remove and clean this will allow the gas to flow out the burner not back feed down the burner tube

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.

SOURCE: removed burners for cleaning, flame erratic

I don't think you "seated" the burners correctly where they go into the knobs. Get up under the knobs, look up and you'll see what I mean.

It's either blockage or a leak at the valve.. Turn gas ogg and trighten valve, the open gas very slowly. before lighting check connection with soapy water.

SOURCE: why do flames shoot out behind the control knob on

More than likely, the venturi valve is clogged by a spider or spider web. You will need to remove the burner to check for this and clear them out. The venturi is the part of the burner that fits over the burner orifice. It may be 2 slots cut into both sides of the burner tube or a series small holes that are not burner port holes.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa. Cheers...

How to adjust oven burners to lower it and to turn up top burners


Really you should get a registered gas fitter to do this especially with the oven.

There is a small set screw behind the plate that covers the control knobs. Light the burner, turn the knob to its lowest setting and then use the adjusting screw to set the minimum flame height. The flame must be robust enough that it can't blow out when you open a door or window and create a draught.

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.

Can't locate pilot on vulcan lg300


TO LIGHT THE PILOT
1.Open the door. 2. Turn the thermostat OFF The thermostat is located behind the door. 3. Push the gas control valve knob and turn to OFF. Wait 5 minutes for unburned gas to vent. 4. Push and turn gas control valve knob to the "L" in PILOT. 5. While still holding the knob in, light the pilot with a lit flame. Continue to depress the knob until pilot remains lit when knob is released. If the pilot does not remain lit, repeat step 3 through 5. 6. Depress and turn gas control knob to ON

I go thru the process of lighting the pilot light following the directions exactly, but as soon as I let the pilot light switch pop out so that I can turn it to the left to light the heater the flame goes...


The system works off of a thermocouple that is heated by the pilot. The thermocouple creates millivolts that magnetize a head behind the control knob. When you push in the knob the magnetized head behind the knob holds the gas valve open. So obviously the head is not being magnetized. First make sure that the pilot is not plugged and the flame is large enough to heat the thermocouple. Also sometimes you may need to hold the knob for several minutes before the pilot will stay on. Also patio heaters have a safety feature that will cut the millivolt circuit if the heater falls over. It is possible that this safety device is tripped or defective causing the pilot to not stay lit. Also check for any loose wires on the millivolt system.

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.

No you need to replace the valve behind the knob as well most likely this is what caused the flame.
