    all four burners light on right side only!!!!

  • Anonymous Apr 27, 2009

    48,000 BTU - 5-years old, do not know the model number. 4-burner grill w/cast brass burners. At back end of burners there is a slot cut on the bottom between the third last holes on both sides. The igniter is on the left side, but the right side requires the flame to jump from the left side to the right side. I believe that is the purpose of the slot. Three of my burners had that problem and the slots were partially or totally plugged with carbon build up. Problem corrected when I cleaned the slots. It took hacksaw with a thin metal cutting blade (lots of teeth) to clean the carbon from the slot.

I have had this same problem with my 4 burners.
I removed the burners and at the rear of the burner about 4 holes down is a canal that runs to the right side. I cleaned this canal with a paper clip and now my burners on the right side are burning.
Hope this works for you.

SOURCE: The grill burners are not

Brian, is it case of the 3 ignitors not working or is it a case of gas not getting to those 3 burners? Have you tried match lighting any of those 3 burners?

I ask the above questions in an effort to determine which solution will work for you. Please advise and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Only left side of burners working


If you have the Cal Flame burners that are straight, cast brass burners, there is a slot under neath the burners on the back end of the burners. This slot allows the flame to move from the left side of the burners to the right side of the burners. This slot in the burner will corrode shut and not allow the flame to move from the left to the right side. Sometimes you can scrape out the corrosion, and sometimes you can not. If you can't get the slot open, then you have to replace the burners. Cal Flame burners also have a reputation for warping.

I have a brinkmann 3 burner grill, the middle burner flames, but the outside ones do not, i just bought it today. How do I light the outside burners?


I am not sure, but I think the Brinkman uses the ignitor to light one burner and the other burners light after the first one allowing the flame to "crossover".

The grill burners are not lighting, but the side burner does light. I have a 3 year old Kenmore grill with four burners.

One burner of my four burner grill only lights on one side. I have traded places in the grill with other working burners and they work fine in that spot but the one will still only light on one side unless...


If you remove the burner to clean it, did you also check and clean the venturi valve near the open end of the burner, where it fit's over the burner orifice? If not, the venturi is probably clogged. Spiders love to build nest in them. While you have the burner out, inspect it closely for anything you may have missed when you cleaned it the first time.

Hope this helps you and Happy Grilling!!

I have a fire Magic A660 drop in grill (natural gas) and when I light the burner (2 of the 3 burners) the flame doesn't travel all the way around the burner. Gas is coming out of all the ports. I can light...


I don't know how old your grill is, but as grills age, the gas ports in the burners begind to clog and corrode. Flame travesl around the burners like dominoes when you stand them up and knock them down, one port lights the next, etc. All burners light on just one side and there are ports that are designed to take the gas from the outside of the burner to the inside and from one side to another. Depending on how clogged the ports are, you can clear them using a straightened paper clip, or a drill with a bit. Be careful not to make the gas ports larger.

One burner won't light


on my Roadtrip when the left side burner would not light, I found that the screws holding that control in place had come loose; I tightened them and again checked for propane leaks with the standard soapy water solution and the burner has been working since then!

Grill jenn-air will not heat past 100 degrees


You need to pull the burners out and scrub open the side feedholes on the burner. These ususally clog up over time reducing the heat available for cooking. Also, sometimes the Gas regulator goes bad over time when left outside for a year or two. A bad regulator will put out less gas as it fails closed.

Jenn-Air grill half burner issue


Re: only one side lighting, it is a problem with the cross over **** that carries the flame from one side of the burner to the other. It is located at the rear bottom of the burner and is probably clogged. Wire brush them to clean; failing that, replace with new ones and keep the new ones cleaned with a wire brush regularly.
