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!!
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

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!!

Wont turn on


a huming motor is all ways bad news,,,,the motor has burnt out or is jamed so it cant turn,,,and that will burn it out as well!
most motors have two windings in there field coiles the start up winding and the run winding,,,if the start up winding has a fult in it it cant "kick start" the motor and if it cant "kick" it over the second run winding wont take over,,,so the motor stalls,,and it just humes??? but it gets very hot doing this!! causing a burn out!,,,,thats about the long and the short of it
boring huh? fitting a new motor should fix it,,,if its worth the price of a motor, plus fitting,,,

The flame coming out of the burner bars is small


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

When I turn on a burner, all the other burners click like they are trying to turn on as well. The clicking is continuous and really annoying! Thanks for your help! Tammie


Anytime you turn on a gas range all burners click for safety reasons. If a knob has been turned by mistake the gas lights to prevent gas from escaping into the room. If you turn the control knob past the LITE position after the burner lights you should be OK and stop the clicking. If the clicking continues regardless you have a defective ignitor switch that must be replaced.

My grill does not exceed 300 degrees. The rear burner is barely lit, it sputters with a blue flame. The Front and middle burners run well, blue flame no yellow. I changed the regulator with one from home...


Bypass valve need reset. All grills made after 1996 have this valve.
  • Close the LP tank valve
  • Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
  • Open the grill lid
  • Turn the LP tank valve until it is completely open
  • Wait 90 seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.
  • Turn remaining burners to High
  • Close the lid.
  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes
I called Weber and a rep walk me through it.

Rangemaster 110 grill flame.


to find out if the regulator is good or bad, turn any of the burners that do not have the problem, one at a time but take a close look at the flame and see if the flame goes lower and lower as you turn a second burner and a third and the fourth one, if the flame goes lower and lower the regulator is bad. but if the problem is with just the grill one , it has to much air, you can turned down the air where the burner meets the valve that supplies gas to it the burner has a vent, it needs to be close a little bit, you can close it little by little and testing the burner on the on position until the splutter goes away.
