Having the same problem as pmac re george foreman grill. The wire twists every time the lid is moved. Seems like a design fault. Buying new is tempting but what assurance same will not happen?.Encouraging the throw away society. Good for george foreman but not for the environment.

Sounds like the lid shorts the power or shuts it off, see if you can spot any faulty wiring. If you can't, you might try getting it to an electrician who should be able to solve it - but for $40 you could just as well get a new one.

    P.S. The wiring I'm talking about should be between the lid and the base (in the axis).

How are you supposed to heat up the green egg


There are you tube videos. I temporarily take daisy vent cap off top of egg, open bottom vent door wide open, light lump coal 2-3 spots with a loof lighter (from ace hardware) and then close lid. I have one section of galvanized dryer vent from Lowes that I stick on top which accelerates preheating of egg. Once the temp gets to 500, I remove the section of vent by grabbing it with a glove or hotpad. Wait a minute or two for smoke to die down. Place daisy back on top and close bottom vent door down to 1/2" and close daisy 1/2 on top and this should drop temp to 175-250. Use fine adjustments 1/6-1/8" until desired temp is reached. Your food can go on at any time after removing dryer vent. Just burp lid by slightly lifting to allow any heat burst to escape. I also have a gas conversion that works awesome. I just add a small smoke ox over burner that provides enough smoke on front end of cooking process. Advice- keep the butts and ribs on for 6 hours.

Won't heat up above 200 degrees.


Try turning off the valve to the tank, then leave the knobs on the grill open for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the grill knobs, slowly, slowly open the valve on the tank. Relight the grill and see if it gets hot.

Troubleshooting nexgrill charcoal gas grill


did you replace the battery in the igniter?
less than 100 degrees indicates a safety has engaged, close gas valve, open burner valves.....wait 5 minutes. keep lid open, close burner valves, open gas valve until you hear the regulator click
turn on "ignition burner" and ignite (with switch or at specified port).
After this part is lit open other burners one at a time , waiting until each lights before opening the next.

Stoves newhome gg700 grill flame goes out if lid is closed


I had a stove in my camper that did this. The answer was to let the flame burn for a few minutes BEFORE closing the door. I think the original problem is that there is too much gas flowing to the burner and it literally blows itself out, until you get everything heated up and working. The question, I think, is there a way to turn down the gas pressure??

Hello, we have a 3 switch stainless grill that has NEVER heated up properly. It always seems to stay luke-warm. Please help.


First, how high are the flames when turned to high as opposed to the low setting on each of the 3 burners? If there's no significant difference in height between the two settings, here's what I want you to do.

Turn off the gas tank (that's assuming you are using a 20lb LPG cylinder) and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the Tank Valve ON very, very slowly, until it's fully open. Now, light each burner individually turning them to high. Are the burner flames higher than before? If so, you just solved your problem.

Remember to turn the tank ON very, very slowly after turning it off to change the tank or if you turn the tank off after each time you grill. Also, when grilling preheat the grill with the lid closed, after lighting the burners.

Hope that solved your problem ... Happy Grilling!

Weber won't get very hot


Safety valve needs reset.
  • Close the LP tank valve
  • Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
  • Open the grill lid
  • Turn the LP tank valve until it is completely open
  • Wait several seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.
  • Turn remaining burners to High
  • Close the lid.
  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes
I called Weber and the rep walked me through the reset. All grills made after 1996 have this bypass valve.

Lots of yellow - then very low heat


Are the flames still yellow? If so the burner just needs to be adjusted which is very easy? Look at the ends of the tubes that come out of the burner and end right at the back of the gas controls. You should see a small piece of metal that will slide or spin to close a hole. You want to close or open it a little at a time while the grill is burning. Adjust this until you only see blue flame or blue flames with a little bit of a yellow tip.

Boiler keeps losing pressure when the heatings off


Hi Leehardcast,

Yes the problems are related. The system is low on water. So now instead of water you have air in radiators which is easily compressed when it heats up. Then pressure loss when it cools down.

Add some water to your system until you have 15lb pressure and bleed out upstairs radiators at the same time.

Please rate this response and Good luck, Phil

Grill buzzing


No, a buzzing noise merely means that something is vibrating from the magnetic field that is created when power flows through the heating elements. As long as nothing is obviously loose, the grill is safe to use.

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.
