Not getting hot

I have a propane grill and the last 2 times that i used it, i noticed that it was taking a long time to get hot. the first time it took over 30 minutes and i was only going to cook some hamburgers. this last time, it had been at least 45 minutes that i had turned on the burners on hi and it was still not quite at 400 degrees.

SOURCE: Side burner on propane gas grill burns with orange

here is a link to a page that shows what the colors of the flame should look like and what causes the orange instead of the blue flame. http://www.appliance411.com/faq/gas_range_flames.shtml
I would begin by checking to be sure you do not have a spider or a cob web in the burner partially blocking the gas or the air intake.

SOURCE: My grill does not heat beyond 300 degrees.

Hello,

Check the excess flow safety device, which is part if the barbeque to cylinder connection, may have activated. To reset the excess flow safety device turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve off.
Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to high. Wait at least 1 minute . Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve slowly. I HAD THIS PROBLEM JUST LAST NIGHT AND FIXED IT RIGHT THEN.

SOURCE: My q grill is not heating properly.

The new style2_bing.gif OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem
IF not you might want to remove the cap (white) on your regulator and try slowly adjusting the regulator, make small adjustments and try the BBQ My Weber if I set the front and back burners to MED I get right at 350 degrees in 60 degree outdoor temps. Adjusting the regulator will take some time to get it right but If it is not your tank it is most likely your regulator out of adjustment

I Have A Jenn-Aie Model 720-0164 Natural Gas Grill. When I Grill, The Control Knobs Get So Hot Theyh Will Burn You. What Could Csuse This?


Can this grill be also used on propane? If so you might be running it too hot on natural gas, check to see if the control knobs have two different set of markings.

Tip

Regulators on propane Grills


I've heard allot of times "My regulator on my grill is bad", as a general rule regulators can and most the time outlast the grill itself. Most problems withare caused by the regulator getting plugged, When you remove the hose from the propane tank cover it to prevent anything from getting in the hose, Same thing applies if you take the hose off of the regulator cover the hose end and the regulator inlet this will keep most problems like the regulator getting plugged from starting.

I have a Webber Q Family BBQ for about 2 - 3years. I noticed say last 6 months that the burners are not working properly and the grill is not hot enough ie take 3 times longer to cook a steak etc. I read...


OK, it sounds to me that when you changed the propane tank, you may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Doing so causes the built-in excess flow valve to check, which only allows a trickle of gas through. Do this: Turn off the gas tank, disconnect it and drain any remaining gas from the grill by opening a valve to a burner. Close the grill valve and then reconnect the tank. Very slowly open the tank valve and try lighting a burner again and see it that solves the problem. Douglas

Propane gas flame is not hot. Do I adjust the air


Here is something to try if it is LP Gas:

Here is a Tip to fix a grill that not getting hot:
1. Turn the gas valve knob off. then close LP tank valve knob.
2. Unscrew the plastic hose coupling knob from the LP tank. You may hear a slight "hissing" sound as pressure is released this is normal.
3.Wait a minute then screw the coupling knob back on to LP Tank.
4.With lid open.slowly open LP tank valve.
5.Relight the grill the proper way by turning gas valve knob to ON position while turning the igniter knob at the same time.
6.After you are sure the grill is lit preheat the grill for 30 minutes.

This was called purging the line or releasing the air out of the line.

Another thing your orifice could be clogged with spiders or dirt. If it is LP gas check to make sure your hose is not kinked.

Flames are shooting out of the grill area by the front knobs


I have had this happen & it is because your tube is clogged with a spiders web, I can about guarentee it; this happened to me 2 years in a row. Simply turn off the propane & disconnect the tank.....take off the grill grate & flame hood ....remove the tube & look inside it & see if its clogged....clean & put it back & everything should be fine.

Grill won't start


The regulator on the gas feed line is not working properly. Take the regulator to a propane supplier and have the regulator checked.

Propane Problems


The salesman at ACE Hardware told me I needed a grill tip cleaner. Seems the outflow valve from the tank can get crusted and there is a device called a gril tip cleaner that can help restore the gas flow to a higher level.
