Problem with Gas flow on multi burner gas grill

We have a Kenmore Model #141.16324 Gas grill and it worked well for a year but now when three of the burners are on and you go to turn on the 4th or 5th it shuts the gas off to the first three. Also we have a xtra burner on the side for pans and now when we try to use it it only comes out with one big yellow flame, it dosen't have the typical gas flame.

Is it safe to assume that the 4th and 5th burner has a poor flame also? It sounds like a fuel starvation issue. Have you tried replacing the regulator? The regulator is the some what square shaped thing that is on the black LP hose or on the manifold (the part that has the gas valves on it), if it is natural gas. Also try cleaning out the burners and the gas valve orifaces. These will sometimes get clogged with spider webs or food particles. Another thing that can cause a problem is if you have one of those LP gas guages on the tank. I found that it was blocking the gas flow. I tried re installing it but it still caused a problem.

Why won't my Weber grill ignite after installing a


Disclaimer- be careful when working with gas. Starters in gas grills are just about novelty anymore. Often, they only light 1/3rd or 1/4th of the burners and they usually stop working within one grilling season. I recommend using a wand lighter. Try to light just one burner but if doesn't light in 5 to 7 seconds, turn the gas off and wait to try again. Incidentally, you are turning the gas on at the tank, right? You should hear it when you turn the burner on.

Loss of pressure on Kenmore 16322


I can tell you EXACTLY what is wrong. Remove the tank and open all valves to the grill. Reconnect the tank and turn it on just slightly. Relight the grill.
Ther is a safety device in the tank that needs to be reset. The only way to do it is removing the tank.

Looks like your regulator is not venting properly to relieve the back pressure. The best thing you can do here is replace the regulator.

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.
