James, the problem is that the grill's regulator is partially locked up or you are low on gas. Check the gas level firs. If that checks out OK, do the following.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Our food doesn't seem to be cooking properly.....it is taking a long time, and seems to kind of "simmer", rather than grill, even though the burners are both on and turned full on.


If this is a propane (LP) grill, try replacing the regulator and hose that goes to the tank. It sounds like the grill is not getting enough gas.

The gas doesn't seem to be feeding properly?


Bruce, this is probably due to the grill's gas regulator being locked up.

To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Recently replaced all 5 burner tubes and now when I light the grill it doesn't get hot enough - stays around 250 degrees.


Gerald, when you turned the gas tank valve back On, after replacing the burner, the OPD Valve in the grill tank partially locked up the grills gas regulator. To solve this problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the gas valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes.

2. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion,
slow).

3. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the grill first and turn it to HIGH. Does
the flame height look correct for the highest setting? If so, light the remaining burners the same
way. Now, to all the flame heights look normal for the highest setting. if so, you solved the
problem.

4. Close the hood/lid of the grill and allow it to preheat for at least 15 minutes. The temperature
reading (if your grill thermometer is correct) should between 400 & 450 degrees F, depending on
outside air temperature. Which is hot enough to sear a steak.

If none of the above corrected the problem. You will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly, because the regulator is partially locked up. You can pickup one at any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to troubleshot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

zonfish - if you're tuning the gas tank off at each use, as you should. The problem lies in your grill's gas regulator, but it also is not a big deal and is easily solved.

Whenever, you open the tank valve, do it VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow), until it is fully open. Then light the burners.

What happens is this, LP Gas Grill Tanks are now equipped with an Overfill Protection Device ("OPD"). And often time, when you turn the valve on like you would normally do, the OPD Valve sends a hot load of gas to your grill's regulator and partially locks it up or locks up entirely. Therefore, the burners are not getting enough gas to heat the unit up to 500 degrees. Opening the valve very, very, slowly, overcomes this problem.

I hope this helped you and Happy Grilling.

Just bought a new Jenn-Air grill and cant get the temp past 250. Any ideas what i am doing wrong?


First, check that all the gas lines and flame bars are clear of any 'things' or bugs. I had a similar problem with a Webber grill and found out my problem was with the gas bottle. The new Overflow Protection Valve required on LP bottles can closed off or severly slow the flow of gas when the bottle is full and the valve is opened quickly. It will let enough gas flow to light the grill but won't let the fire get high enough to heat the grill up. Turn all the valves off on the grill and gas bottle. Open the gas bottle valve slowly then turn on the grill burner and try lighting it. If the flame is still very low try again or you have to let it burn at the low level until the OPV float drops down and the valve doesn't impede the gas flow. The best way to avoid this in the future is to not fill the gas bottle to the top when you have it refilled. Just ask the LP attendent to not fill it all the way.

I have my Weber Q grill hooked up to a large propane tank rather than the small tube type. It worked fine for a few weeks but now the grill only gets medium hot. Not hot enough to cook anything really. ...


Seems as if your grill is suffering from "Clogged Burner Syndrome". But, don't despair, it's easily solved by removing and thoroughly cleaning the burners or "coil" as you called it. Also, pay particular attention to the venturi valves on the open end of the burner. Spiders like to build nests in them. The venturi valve will look like a slot on the right and left of the burner tube, where it fits over the burner orifice. It's really a good idea to perform this routine maintenance, at the start of each grilling season.

When it comes to gas grills, it's like Benjamin Franklin said, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness."

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Grill turns on but doesn't get hot enough to cook anything


Assuming it's a Propane Grill. More than likely, the grills regulator is partially locked up or the tank is low on gas..If you're confident that the tank has adequate gas, turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the grill hose/regulator assembly from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until it's fully open. Then light the burner that's farthest from the tank, first and turn the flame to it's highest setting. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Have all the flame heights returned to normal? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem and you are still sure there's adequate gas in the tank ... You'll need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Just make sure to take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you solve the problem and Happy Grilling!!
