KitchenAid Gas range Problem

Hi All,
I have a scary issue with my KitchenAid Gas Range. The range has a large double burner that has an inner ring and also an outer ring controlled by the same valve.
If this burner is on, and I attempt to light another burner on the stove top, a kind of explosion happens, with a large flame surge from the large double burner.
Sometimes it is strong that it flexes up the top of the range.
The flame on the new burner (the one being attempted to light) goes out, then the flame on the double burner goes orange and it takes a while for it to get back to normal.

I cant understand how this is happening? the valves are clearly separate, and each burner obviously has it own tubing. How can the opening of valve/burner B create a surge in burner A.
