If you remove the burners, the Venturi Tube is part of the open end of the burner that fits over the burner orifice. It should look like a slot on each side of the burner. There's really nothing to open, once the burner is removed.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

What is the use of Venturi?

A venturi is used in many skimmers to draw air into the water flow. As water is pumped through the venturi, air is drawn into the passing water through a small inlet tube. There are many version of venturi in the outlet tube because many brands use modified version of their own.

Second third and fourth burner will not light?

Susan, there are several reasons that can cause the problem you described. The first being that theburners that won't light need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. The cleaning also requires cleaning the Venturi Valve on each burner. The Venturi Valve will look like 2 slots cut into the side of each burner tube near the burner's open end, that fits over the burner orifice. Spiders like to build nest in the Venturi Valves. Be sure to turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank, before attempting any work on the grill. After you have finished cleaning everything, reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until it is fully open.
Then light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. If the flame height kooks correct, light the remaining burners the same way. If all the burners lit and the flame heights look correct, you solved the problem (with a little help).

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

I have a 2005 Weber Genesis Silver propane grill. The first and third burners work fine, but the middle burner will not ignite. I have cleaned it and still no flame in the middle. I'm about to order...

Jeanne - Did you remove the burner to clean? If not. you weren't able to clean the Venturi Valve, which is part of the burner. Spiders love to get in the Venturi Valve & build a nest. When that happens it stops the gas to that burner. I suspect, that may be the problem. The Venturi Valve, is part of the burner (the open end part) that's closest to you, when you face the front of the grill. It will look like 2 slots (one on each side) cut out of the burner tube, where it fits over the burner orifice. But, you can't see it, without removing the burner. An old tooth brush works well to clean it.

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

How do you remove the venturi tubes of a Blue Ember Gas Grill? The manual explains how to clean the venturi tubes, but it doesn't say how to remove the tubes for cleaning. The manual just says...

The venturi tubes are part of the burner. It"s a slot on both sides of the burner tube, where it goes over the burner orifice. You will need to remove the burners to check and clean them.

Hope this helped answer your question.

Yellow flame

You may have a rusted, clogged or damaged burner or venturi tube. With a flashlight, check for spider webs, wasp nests or dirt (mud) dauber nests in the opening of the venturi tube where it connects at each gas valve orifice. Clean it out manually or blow it out with air compressor. Make sure the air adjustment opening (on the end of the burner's venturi tube) has not been changed. If it's closed too much, it will be difficult to light and cause lazy yellow flames. If it's not clogged, the burner may just be old and rusted and the burner holes are not allowing very much gas through anymore. It's also possible the burner has rusted so bad, the burner holes have been enlarged, it is falling apart or has cracks along the burner seams. If so, replace the burner(s) immediately. It is unsafe to use. Your local propane co can usually order the parts you need and some will even do the work, if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself. Bring with you the Make, Model and Serial number of the grill, so they can order the correct parts for your specific grill. Also specify whether it's natural gas2_bing.gif or propane.

Remove the float bowl again and remove the BRASS Jet in the bottom of the venturi throat. Clean the pin hole of the Jet so that you can see through it. DO NOT force anything through it. Just clean it. Underneath the jet is the venturi tube itself. It is also unscrewed with a screw driver. Remove it and clean all ofthe holes in it. Then reassemble tube and jet in to the venturi. Check the BOWL NUT for 2 holes. If the holes are clogged your engine will suffer from a lack of fuel. Lastly check that you have FUEL flow from the tank to the carb. If the tank outlet hole is clogged you will also have a lack of fuel problem.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Most likely the JET orfice in the bottom of the carburator venturi throat is clogged. I am assuming you have a 5.5 Hp Honda motor but even if it is not the procedure is the same.

1. Turn off the fuel supply selector

2. Remove the float bowl by taking out the mounting hardawre. The nut / cap screw on the very bottom of the float bowl has holes in it. Make sure they are clean.

3. Remove the "Brass" JET from the bottom venturi tube and clean the orifice. You should see a pinhole of light through the hole when it is clean.

4. Remove the venturi tube just above the jet that is also brass. The throat of the venturi tube and the 2 side holes must be clear.

5. Use something like a spray paint can lid to catch fuel and then briefly turn on the fuel supply. The fuel should flow at a good rate though the float needle and seat assy. GENTLY lift the float to the raised positon (level) and confirm fuel stops. Then loet it lower again noting fuel flow. TURN OFF THE FUEL selector. If you do not get any fuel at this point check the bottom of the fuel tank for obstructions at the tank outlet hole. Once you have verified fuel flow.

6. Reinstall the venturi tube

7. Reinstall the jet

8. Reinstall the float bowl making sure upper and lower gaskets are in place.

9. Turn on the fuel and wait one minute (check for leaks)

10. Start the unit.....


Thanks for using FixYa.

The problem may be in your regulator. About five years ago the feds required all grill regulators to have safety features which now often cause the problem you are having.

Make sure your regulator is right side up for starters Then check the venturri tubes to be sure some spider hasnt nested in there. Make sure it is clear.

Here is some additioinal info u may need to read:

Fuel Hose and Regulator: The output of a propane tank is much greater than you need for grilling so the regulator controls the amount of fuel that can flow to your grill. The regulator attaches to the tank by a flexible hose with an O-ring to create an airtight seal. Regulators are preset by the manufacturer and should not be adjusted by you. If you look at your regulator you will notice a small vent hole in the center. Common problems here are clogged vent holes, which can cause irregular fuel flow and can lead to trouble. Usually you can clear it by tapping or blowing into the vent. Other problems are fuel leakage caused by a worn or damaged hose or O-ring. To determine if there is leaking mix dish soap and water in equal parts and coat everything from the tank to the venturi tubes. The tank needs to be connected and on but the control valves off. If you find a leak replace that part. Control Valves: The controls do just that, control the flow of fuel to the burner. Some grills have one control valve and others have several. The valve consists of several components that are specifically designed on a number of factors. You cannot repair a bad control valve and if need be you should replace the whole unit. Before you do, however remove the control valve from your grill and inspect it. Like other parts of your grill, insects love to climb in here and make their homes. At the heart of this is the orifice. The orifice controls the flow of fuel and can become clogged. If it is use a thin wire to clean out. Make sure you put it all back together the way you found it. Without the orifice you cannot control the amount of gas flowing to the burner and run the risk of explosion. Venturi Tubes: The venturi tubes connect the control valve to the burner(s) and mix the fuel with air to provide flame. To mix the air into the fuel there is an open gap in the fuel line here that can easily become obstructed. Insects, especially spiders, love this space and given half a chance will move in as quickly as possible. The best solution for this is to wrap the venturi tubes with an aluminum screen that will not block the airflow but will keep the critters out. Another common problem here is a misalignment of the venturi tubes with the burner. Typically the venturi tubes are simply placed in the fuel line and can get knocked out of place. The venturi tubes typically have adjustable shutters. You may need to adjust these to regulate fuel flow.

Venturi tubes

The venturi tubes should go over the gas orifice. If the tubes were to drop off, you could have a fire outside of your grill and possibly an explosion.
