    Most likely the crappy burner you got with the grill is cracked or has multiple cracks which causes a lot of the propane to leak out faster and not burn. I didt some parts searching and the only place I found it was at this site but it costs $53. http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/gas...

    Cal Flame 5 burner convection grill purchased Oct 2005 can't read model number. We have removed the lens for the light but cannot remove the light bulb. It seems to have the socket below the housing with small nuts (not screws) in front and back of the bulb. We are concerned about breaking the bulb inside the socket as it is very resistant to pulling out. Also in the instructions there is a reference to a lens removal key but I don't have one and cannot find anything like that on the internet anywhere including Cal Flame parts lists. Hope you can hep. Thanks

Mike, I had this problem with my grill once or twice. Like most of us grilling men we turn the grill off at the tank trying to be safe. Sometimes, like in my case, I do not turn the nobs back to the off position. When returning to the grill the next day or week the first thing we do is turn the gas on leaving the nobs on, then lighting. Every time I do this my flame never gets full or does not reach full temp. To resolve this: turn everything off including the nobs, then turn the gas on, wait a minute or two. Turn the nobs to full and ignite. It should be at full flame then, adjust from there. I hope this is helpfull.

I've had my grill for a few years and when i turned it on last night, i could barely see the flames and i had both burners on hi. I cleaned (took a wire brush) to where the flames get out and still...


You may have to recheck the tank for full. If you forgot to turn off the tank after the last time you used the grill, the tank could have leaked down. I always keep a spare full tank for just those types of problems. If the tank is full, then the regulator may have a problem. That grill should be able to get over 300 degrees.

Low flame - doesn't heat enough


Hi, Patty. The low burner flame on a natural gas grill an be caused by several things.

1. The gas line shutoff valve is not fully open.
2. The burners are clogged and need to be removed and properly cleaned
3. The venturi valve(s), which has spider screens may be clogged.

The things listed above are the top 3 reasons for the low burner flame problem on a Natural Gas Grill.

To help you accomplish the cleaning of the burners and the venturi valves, I have included a link to your Owners Manual, that you can download & print for future reference. It has detailed instructions and diagrams in the Maintenance section, that will show you how to accomplish this.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Low Heat ? i have a brand new napoleon grills. paid a lot to get quality. I dont find it very performant. It seems there is heating problem. I read a lot about regulator reset. I tried it but im not...


Not sure what you're grilling, that would require 500 degrees or higher. Unless, you're really trying to char-broil and I do mean char. In any event, it may simply be the thermometer on the hood of your grill, reading incorrectly. Keep in mind, the thermometer is not reading the temp at the cooking grate surface, it's reading the air temperature when the hood is closed.

I do a lot of grilling, I do grill shows for local food stores and I love to grill. But, I have learned to never rely on what the grill thermometer says. I use an oven thermometer that sits off to the side, on top of my grill grates. When I compare the temp on the grill thermometer to the oven thermometer on the cooking grates, there will be a difference of 50 degrees. Now, certainly the temp will drop some, when the hood is opened after preheating. That's normal. But the heat loss, at cooking grate level, is not more than 10 degrees, depending on the outside ambient air temperature. Of course if it's the dead of Winter, the temperature will drop significantly. In that case, grill with the hood closed 90% of the time.

With all of the above said, what do the flames and flame heights look like on each burner? Do they respond as they should when you raise and lower the flames? If not, then you have a gas pressure problem. That can be resolved by turning OFF the tank valve, disconnect the hose from the tank and waiting 5 minutes. Then reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Do the flames look higher than they did previously? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure as the first burner. Do all the flame heights look correct. If so you solved the problem of low flame height.

I hope all of this has helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem, if there is one. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Silver C 2000 Model heats to 420 degrees with all 3 burners on Low. Normal? Weber support service has given me conflicting information. With 2 burners on Low it heats to 310-320 degrees.


That's fairly common with the lid closed and a day that is not too cool. Keep in mind that a gas flame is about 800F. Try using only one burner on low or between on and high to get a lower temperature. This is a grill, not a smoker or slow cooker.

It will run cooler with a large amount of food.

KENMORE Gas Grill 141-152210 Kenmore 437 sq. in cooking will only heat to 250 degrees


sudsy, this exact same thing would happen to me every time I changed a tank. I know it's nothing to do with the grill itself. I would have to seat and reseat the regulator hose to the tank a couple of times before it would start heating normally. Your model has 3 burners and I suspect that the flame is real low on each one even on the high setting. Try connecting and disconnecting the tank a couple of times and see if it comes to life. If worse comes to worse you can order a new regulator hose. Part number P3632L. Catriver..post back.
