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

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...

It sounds as if the burners may not be properly seated on the valves. Instead of all of the gas flowing into the burners, some of the gas is escaping behind the front panel and creating a fire behind the front panel which would heat the valve shafts and melt the knob inserts. This call also be caused by partially blocked burner venturi and valve orifices.

Check to make sure the end of each valve is completely inside of each burner.

Flames coming out the front of BBQ - I have checked for spider webs inside and at the knobs - I started it again and the same thing happened. The flames are spilling out over the BBQ


I would check the burners are not blocked , or you have a laek on your bbq at one of the control knobs . Not sure now many control knbs you have try testing one at a time for leaks

Baby weber flame will not adjust to different levels stays on high flame even when we turn the knob


You will need to replace the control knob assembly. Which includes the tank hook up & regulator. Contact Weber Customer Service @ 1-800-446-1071 for this part.

Hope this helped you.

Grill worked fine for almost a year but I recently used charcoal following the directions in the manual (and it worked great). However since using it (& it is long gone), if I turn grill on high,...


Kathleen, the ash and debris left from the charcoal clogged the burners and caused the flames to shoot back thru the venturi valves, which is causing the flames to reach the control knobs. For the most part. I would suspect that the control panel, the electronic ignition, control knobs, the gas manifold for the burners and the burners are now completely shot.

Now, you're at the stage of determining is it worth it, to replace all the parts (if you can find them) and repair the grill. Since you didn't mention who the manufacturer of the grill is and how long you've had it. I have no way to tell how much it's worth. But, if it were me, and the grill is at least 5 years old and it originally cost $600.00 or less, I'd seriously consider replacing the gas grill with a new one. And if you want to do some charcoal grilling, get a separate inexpensive charcoal grill and take good care of it. During the weekday evenings when you don;t have time for charcoal grill to preheat, use the gas grill. On weekends, use the charcoal grill if you like.

Hope this helped answer your question and ultimately help you make the right decision.

It sounds like sealant may need to be used on connections. Use appropriate one for gas fittings.

Noting where the leak is occuring is important. Another possibility is the fuel is being somehow "jetted" from a hole or orifice in a burner tube to the area behind the control panel. These are hard to see what happens first when it does happen.

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