blow out all the gas tubes, sounds like you have spider webs in them.

If there is no gas check the tank, If the tank is fine look at the regulator. It has to be flat, because of a valve inside. This is a safety device incase of tipover.

Full tank(s) no gas to grates???

Jenn-Air... | Answered on Oct 05, 2012

Sheldon, this happens a lot, but it's easy to solve.

1. Turn the gas tank's valve OFF & disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes & reconnect the hose to the tank.
3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow).
4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn to HIGH.
Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners
one at a time the exact same way. Do all the flame heights look correct? if so, you solved
the problem (with a little help). Just remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grills Hose/Regulator Assembly as it is permanently locked up. You can pick one up for about $30.00 from any hardware store or home center that sells grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

I hope the helped you and Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Are you trying to remove the hose connection from the grill's manifold? Or separate the hose from the regulator? If it's the latter, give up that idea. It wasn't made to be disconnected, despite there being a brass nut on it.

If it's the hose from the gas manifold, you may need 2 wrenches. One for the nut and the other for holding the manifold connection in place. To be safe and prevent some busted knuckles. Wipe the WD40 off the fitting, before attempting to loosen them. I know it's a tight fit, but be carefully persistent.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

There may be several reasons the rotisserie burner will not light. First, the orifice to the burner itself may be clogged or partially clogged preventing gas flow. There may be a problem with the spark generator, the wire running from the spark generator to the electrode, or the electrode itself. The first thing to check is the gas flow. When you turn on the valve for the rotisserie burner you should hear and smell the gas if it is flowing. Light the rotisserie burner with a manual lighter, if it lights manually, then the gas if flowing.
The seconc thing to look for is a spark from the electrode when you turn or push, depending on the type of spark generator you have. If there is no spark, the it is most likely an ignition system problem. If you have a battery operated spark generator, replace the battery and try again. If the spark generator is a piezo, you have to repalce the spark generator. If you install a new battery, or replace the piezo spark generator, and there is still no spark, then you have to get to the wire and the electrode. Look for bare spots in the wire insulation that would cause a short. Check the electrode for a cracked or broken insualtor. In either case, the wire and/or the electrode will need to be replaced.

I've been selling & servicing gas grills for years and I have to say, this is a first for me.
I can tell you this, your grill was made by either NEX Grill or Maytag. You will only find this grill at Lowe's.

The only possible thing I can think of that "may" be causing the problem is that the burner flames are not reaching the proper height and when you close the lid, it snuffs them out.

If you have a propane grill, try turning the tank off. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes before reattaching it. Once you have firmly reattached it, turn the tank valve on very very slowly and until it's full open, Then light the grill burners one at a time and be sure they are on high. Close the lid and see what happens. If that solved your problem, the gas grill regulator was locked up and only allowed a small amount of gas to get through. If you turn your tank off after each use, be sure to turn it on very very slowly. Do this when you change tanks, too.

If you have a natural has grill, you may have a problem with the gas pressure to the grill. In which case, you will need to have the natural gas provider test the meter on your house.

The crossover for the flame to "jump" to the other side of the burner is clogged, rusgted, etc. It looks like a straight cut line on the rear under side of the burner. Nexgrill told me that the burners did not have an adequate amount of "finish" on them. Call them and get all new burners for free under warranty, Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners.

I have had the same problem before with same exact grill. The burners get clogged and the gas pressure backs up. I have had this actually split a gas valve and the plastic electronic igniters do not have a chance withe the head. Call nexgrill and get all new burners under warranty. This will solve the problem for a while. The latest burners that I received in Aug 2010 are 1/2 inch shorter and may solve this problem. You may want to buy new gas valves since the excess heat in this area may have damaged the valve. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, 2nd set of gas valves and 3rd electronic ignitor. May just recycle grill and get a Weber or go with charcoal.

the regulator is bad and will need replaced

Jenn-Air... | Answered on Aug 15, 2010

Replace the regulator that should do it

Jenn-Air... | Answered on Aug 06, 2010

If you are talking about the hose that goes from the regulator to the manifold of the grill, just replace it. If you mean the manifold itself, you can take the hose from the tank off, open the valves and blow compressed air through it.

sounds like the best option you can not fix them

The Controls, once they ware out they are not serviceable most of the time.

Jenn-Air... | Answered on May 21, 2010


It is either a faulty valve or a defective gas pressure regulator.

If you are located in US you can call BBQSource store to get the replacement part. Here their toll free number: 1-888-252-7686:
