These nests can obstruct gas flow and cause a fire in and around the valve at the control panel. Such a fire can cause operator injury and serious damage to your grill. To help prevent a blockage and ensure full heat output, clean and inspect venturi tubes often.
Spider Guards - Screening is often built into the venturi openings to act as a spider guard. Spider guards can be fabricated by wrapping small sections of aluminum screen aroun ...more
