Jennair downdraft leaking gas from rt. side burners

<< < (2/2)

I'll monitor/use it cautiously and shut off the supply valve after each use for awhile.
Is it a waste to replace the rt valves at this time?

I agree that it shouldn't be the regulator or all 4 burners would have had an issue.

When you say a bad valve wouldn't account for the high flame, would that mean that the high flame could only be accomplished by my above hypothesis of a slightly open valve loading gas into the tube then igniting at the later initial startup?
I've seen this happen on outdoor BBQ's when the pushbutton starter takes repeated strikes to finally ignite the propane. This results in a large initial starting flame which can be hazardous to your eyebrows. :embarassed:
