1st. Are the humming evident when the flame ain't burning? Listen carefully. The control(knob) consists of a valve that regulate the supply of gas to the burner. Check each knob(valve) individually for noise. If noise is evident on the knob(valve) contact your dealer for service or replacement of valve.
2nd. Check the gas regulator. That will be the unit that is exiting the gas bottle. Noise might be evident from the regulator due to the gas being controlled. If excessive noise is evident. Service or replacement of the unit might be necessary.

I have a 3 knob grand gourmet grill with a newer burner, I light the grill with the first knob, turn on the second knob, turn on the third knob and the flame goes out, any suggestions?


To troubleshoot & solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

I just turned on my gas grill and lit the burners and it started humming. what's going on? Is it safe?


Sue, it's not really that dangerous, but you need to correct the problem.
It's generally caused by a change in the gas pressure. Turn the Tank Valve OFF and Disconnect the hose from the tank. Lift the tank out of it's holder, to determine by it's weight, whether low on gas or not. If you determine that it is low on gas, stop using the tank and have it refilled.Or switch to a full tank, if you have a spare.

If you determined there is adequate gas, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.(Which you have already
done).

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct and the humming has
stopped? If so, you solved the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very
Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

When I turn on the gas and ignite, some of the burners are huming. Why?


Are they humming ot does it sound like a jet engine? If it sounds like a jet engine, the venturi valves on those burners my be clogged and need cleaning. You will have to remove the burners to do this. The Venturi Valves are on each side of the burner on the open end of the burner. They will look like slots.

If in fact they are humming. Turn all the burners OFF and the turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank an open the tnk valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and tunr it to high. Does the flame height look normal. If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look normal and has the humming stopped? If so, you solved the "humming" problem. If not, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. They are not expensive and you can find one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes. Afte you replace the hose/regulator assembly, open the tank valve as I described above.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks & Happy Grilling!!

May likely be low on propane or propane tank gate valve not opened far enough. Otherwise sounds like faulty regulator.

Gas does not flow when you turn on gas knob when you turn on the gas valve on the tank and then turn the knob for gas to get to the grill, just before you hit the ignighter no gas comes out


make sure there isn't a designated burner for lighting. sometimes there will only be 1 burner the grill will light. start with all them off, turn on the tank. the grill will have a little picture of a flame next to the burner knob. turn it to high and try lighting

  • Wait 90 seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.

  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes

Sideburner for Thermos Stainless Steel Gas Grill (Mod # 461262006)


It sounds like the orifice is bad. An orifice is a small metal part that has a small hole in it. This regulates the gas coming out to the burner. It is at the tip of the pipe that brings gas to the burners, before the flame. I don't know what the hell the garggley noise is. Unless the bottle is upside down, and you are getting liquid, I don't know.

Since 1995 all regulators (the part that attaches to the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a gas leak. This safety device can be inadvertently activated in two ways, putting the grill into what is commonly called “bypass”. The first way for the device to be activated is to leave one or more burner control knobs in the “ON” position when the LP cylinder valve is opened. The second is not to wait long enough to “start” the grill after opening the LP cylinder valve. The safety device in the regulator is activated each time that the LP cylinder valve is opened. The device resets itself when the gas pressure equalizes between the closed burner control valve and the regulator, through the hose. If a burner control knob is turned on before the gas pressure can equalize, the device will remain in “bypass”. The length of time necessary to wait to “start” the grill after turning on the LP cylinder valve is dependent on the length of the hose and outside air temperature. It is always good practice to wait a few seconds after opening the LP cylinder valve before turning on the burner control knob to start the grill.
Keep in mind that the safety device reacts to a gas leak. If a grill is in bypass, the gas connections and hose should be tested for leaks with a soap and water solution.
If the grill is in bypass, after checking for gas leaks do the following to get the grill out of bypass:
To reset the gas safety device:
Open the barbecue lid.
1. Close the LP tank valve.
2. Turn your burner control knob to the OFF position.
3. Wait at least 5 minutes if the barbecue had been lit, then
4. Disconnect the hose from the LP tank.
5. Turn your burner control knob to the HIGH position.
6. Wait at least 2 minutes, and then turn the burner control knob to the OFF position.
7. Re-connect the hose to the LP tank.
Re-lighting the barbecue:
1. Open the barbecue lid.
2. SLOWLY open the LP tank valve all the way and wait 1 minute.
3. With the lid open, turn the burner control knob to the HIGH position.
4. Ignite the grill by pushing the crossover ignition button.
5. Close the barbecue lid.
6. The barbecue should reach 500 to 550 degrees in 10-15 minutes.
When you are done grilling:
1. Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
2. Turn off the LP tank valve last.
* Always follow the re-lighting instructions whenever you use the adapter hose and larger tank.
