Smoker 911 - GOSM Air intake catching fire.

Discussion in 'Propane Smokers' started by iwannasmoke, Apr 11, 2008.

  1. It's been awhile since I was on here last (not fun to smoke in opinion). I have a party on Sunday and I was planning on smoking the brisket tomorrow.

    Only problem is that when I fired up the smoker to make sure everything was ready, I started having problems. I have a GOSM (3405gw). The air intake (I think that's what it's called) on the propane line right before the burner keeps catching on fire. I can't figure out why it keeps doing this.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help.

    Maybe clogged, see if something might have crawled up in there like a spider or something.

    I don't have a gasser but thats what I think-blow that burnner out-check your adjustments
  4. It's back up and going...I didn't see anything clogging it up. But I dismantled it anyways and ran water through the system, let it dry, put it back together, and I'm getting a nice blue flame now and the air intake is doing its job.

    Thanks for the help.

    Glad you got it up and running. We have a problem with dirt dobbers. The little buggers will get into any hole they can and pack it with spiders. Guess they can't smoke them. Maybe that is what they wanted you to do. Smoke them.
