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.

Flare behind temperature knobs on jenn-air gas grill


This seems to be a problem for most Jenn-Air users. The burners are defective, rusted or clogged and allowing the flame to "back up." You most likely have a melted electronic ignitor as well as gas valve damage. The new burners that I received this week for my model 720-0061-LP are 1/2 inch shorter than previous versions. Time will tell if this fixed the problem. I would call Nexgrill and get all new burners and inspect the gas valve area for damage. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, glad they were free since I have a lifetime warranty on my model.

I have a jenn air 3 burner grill purchased 4 years ago new (from either lowes or home depot). I use propane tank for fuel (which is 1/2 to 3/4 full at the moment). The issue I am having, is when I turn on any two of my burners and go to light the third; both of the previously lit burners flame way down (burners are still on high!!) and sometimes one will flame out, or they both flame way down and the third burner will not light. When the third burner is turned off, the other two do not come back onto high, they stay at a very low flame. HELP!!!


It sounds like it is a natural gas grill instead of propane change out your orifices

I have a Jenn-Air gas grill model #720-0061-LP it has 3 brass burners and a rotisserie burner on the back wall. the flame from the middle burner is shooting back into the knob causing issues with the burner and the knob becomes to hot to touch.


I have had the same problem before with same exact grill. The burners get clogged and the gas pressure backs up. I have had this actually split a gas valve and the plastic electronic igniters do not have a chance withe the head. Call nexgrill and get all new burners under warranty. This will solve the problem for a while. The latest burners that I received in Aug 2010 are 1/2 inch shorter and may solve this problem. You may want to buy new gas valves since the excess heat in this area may have damaged the valve. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, 2nd set of gas valves and 3rd electronic ignitor. May just recycle grill and get a Weber or go with charcoal.

Jenn Air grill burners only lite on one side


It could be a bad regulator but,highly unlikely . Check your air shutters at the end of the burner tubes and adust them properly.And if you have a OPD propane tank you maybe turning it on to quick causing the check valve inside the gas valve to open half way. Try opening the valve slowly.

Uneven burner We are having the same issues as everyone else with 2 burners very low and the third not on at all. We changed the brass burners and still the same problem. We were told by jenn air that the only other thing it could be is the regulator. We changed that as well and still the same problem. We have the Jenn Air 720-0163 pruchased from Lowes. At $770 it is a bit too costly to put out for the garbage but that is what we fell like doing!!! Any help would be appreciated.


I apologize I've not logged in for some time and do not know what "everyone else" has had issues with. I can tell you as a grill repair company we get 4-5 calls every week from clients complaining of poor flames, poor heat. The problem has a very simple solution and the problem is not the burners or other parts and (almost never) the regulator. There are 3 safety features in an LP cylinder. One is a check valve that gauges pressure leaving the tank. This is a swing-arm pressed up by escaping LP. When the gas fills the manifold and gas line (because the BBQ valves all Must Be Off when the cylinder is turned on) the pressure pushes this swing-arm back into position. The problem usually occurs with newly filled tanks because with the tank full and the OPD float displacing liquid pressure the gas "hits" the check valve swing-arm too hard so instead of registering the pressure leaving the tank the swing-arm is pressed too far and the back-pressure does not reseat it correctly. The mechanics of the tank are designed to read higher pressure leaving and lower pressure returning as a leak and shuts-down. We still get some flow because of the OPD pushing but the tank will not allow gas flow at the necessary BTU's. Reset: Turn off everything on the BBQ and the LP cylinder. Disconnect the cylinder and turn the BBQ valves all to "high". Wait 5 minutes. Turn everything off again -- and be sure every valve is completely off so no pressure is released. Reattach the LP cylinder to the regulator and turn the tank on -- very, vert slow for the first full rotation so the gas pressure leaks through slow and cannot "hit" the check valve too hard. Once the cylinder os all the way on light the BBQ and it will be fine. Please let us know how it goes. If I had one dollar for every time someone contacted us to buy burners, regulator, etc only to fix their BBQ while on the telephone with us ... I would retire!

My 4 burner Jenn Air grill wil only partially light on one burner only. 3 of the 4 burners will not light at all. I have just hooked up a new propane tank -- so i am not out of propane. However, the grill has sat unused for 2 years in a covered area. Is my regulator malfunctioning...can it be repaired?


The problem with your unit is less likely to be the regulator. The regulator is what stops the flow of gas through the unit and does not get faulty quite easily. But usually if it does it can always be fixed. Since you unit has been kept for the past 2 years what your unit is suffering from is simply a need for cleaning through the pipes which the gas flows through to supply the burners. Bringing out the unit and doing a proper cleaning of the entire unit. This should get the unit functioning fine again.Hope this solution has been helpful?Thank you for visiting FixYa.

I am in the process of replacing my burners on a Jenn Air model #7200063LP. The burners appear to slide into the gas feed tube on the front part of the grill and attached to the back part of the grill with a cotter pin connection. The opening from front to back due not allow for the space to enter in from the top. My question is what is the proper procedure to replace the burners?


Yes, there really is enough space. Remove the cotter pin(s) and while lifting up the end of the burner farthest from you, pull the burner up and out.To replace the burners, do the above in reverse. Just be sure the burner tube slides over the burner orifice, properly.Hope this helped you change the burners and Happy Grilling!!
