Broken gas lines

We have discovered the metal gas lines for the 2 back burners on our stove have broken off where the gas comes in to the stove. Of course we discover this after a fire starts while trying to light the stove.
Has anyone had this problem?
Thanks.

Ouch. Do you have the Amana stove? Photos? Is it the aluminum line or something different?

Gas line

It is the Amana/Maytag stove and it is the aluminum line. I have a picture but don't know how to upload it. They snapped right where they attach to the front of stove. Repairman said he has never seen that before!

That can easily happen when the trailer is shaking when in motion.

That shaking (vibration) can be from improper running gear balance, or even from perhaps bad rubber rods in the axles.

Of course as always, super bad roads can also cause the same problems.

I haven't had a problem with gas line on the burners breaking off, but I have on the oven. That's an experience when it lights. I don't know if movement caused it, or what, but we tend to use our oven for food storage, like bread, buns, etc. It's also possible we shoved a cookie sheet in the very bottom of the oven for storage and that somehow dislodged the gas line. In any event, you need a flaring tool to reconnect the line (don't forget to put the fitting on the line before you flare it), if you have enough of the old line available...I did. We're more careful now...nothing below the deflector.
