Question about Ducane Grilling
Either the manifold valve for that particular burner has either failed or the burner orifice is clogged. The only way to check it, is to turn OFF and disconnect the gas and remove the the cooking grates, the flame tamer and the burner. Looking inside of the grill, where the burner was removed, you will see the burner orifice, which can be removed with appropriately sized open in wrench. Once it has been removed, look at the small hole in one end, carefully. If it appears to be clogged, either blow through the opposite end or use a straight pin the same size as the hole to clear out the obstruction. Whatever you do, don't make the hole larger! If it was clogged, you just solved the problem. If it wasn't clogged, check the venturi valve/tube on the open end of the burner you removed. It may also be clogged.Simply tapping it lightly with a screw driver handle, will often clear out an obstruction. If not, carefully probe the opening, until it's clear.
If none of the above solved the problem, the Manifold Valve will eed to be cleaned or replaced.
To do this, it will require the removal of all the plastic knobs on the the front of the control panel and then the removal of the control panel itself. By doing that, you should have complete access to the manifold and then can unscrew the couplings and remove it. Personally, if I were doing this, I'd replace the manifold valve, rather than trying to dismantle and clean it. Generally, you can purchase a new one from your grill's manufacturer.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
