Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the flames are shooting out from the sides of the burner, there has to be an issue with the way the gas is flowing from the orifice and into the burner or the burner is faulty. Poor gas pressure could also cause that issue. Do you see any issues, like cracks or obstructions, on or within the burners?
