Spiders or small insects have been known to create "flashback"
problems. The spiders spin webs, build nests and lay eggs in the grill's
venturi tube(s) obstructing the flow of gas to the burner. The
backed-up gas can ignite in the venturi behind the control panel. This
is known as a flashback and it can damage your grill and even cause
injury.
To prevent flashbacksand ensuregood performance the burner and
venturi assembly shouldbe removed from the grill and cleaned
• before usewhenever the grill has been idle for an extended period.
