Question about Tec Sterling II Grill

Burners Poping Both burners start properly. 4 minutes latter they POP, start making a whirling sound and burn at reduced temperature. Sounds like air/gas mixture is wrong.

Re: Burners Poping

Your ceramic burners have cracked, they will send you more but they too will crack after usage.

Burning Hot and Burning propane tank empty in 2 to 3 uses

What does "and parts to burners" mean? it sounds like you have NG orifices on a LP appliance or the LP orifices are not properly drilled. I use my barbecue several times a week and exchange an LP cylinder about every 6 months. If you are using the grill twice and the cylinder is empty that is not a lot of burning, that is a leak.

to adjust the burner the first and most obvious place to look is to check the pressure on the regulator (LP is 11") and the orifices. Next are there adjustment screws inside the valve stems? if so light the barbecue so the flames are visible and insert a long flat-head screwdriver to adjust the set screw inside the valve stem. turn the valve to "low" and adjust it until the flames are just barely staying on. Leave the set screw in that position and turn the valve on high, close the lid. if you're over 400 degrees in 10 minutes you'll be fine. if not adjust the set screw up a quarter turn at a time.

Your Question Preview Fire Magic A790i Logo Problem with A790i Firemagic a790i flames pop and knobs get hot Posted by Author imageGuest on 3/24/2013 Details not getting good pressure to all 3 b

It sounds as if the burners may not be properly seated on the valves. Instead of all of the gas flowing into the burners, some of the gas is escaping behind the front panel and creating a fire behind the front panel which would heat the valve shafts and melt the knob inserts. This call also be caused by partially blocked burner venturi and valve orifices.

Check to make sure the end of each valve is completely inside of each burner.

I have a Char-Broil Tec grill everything works fine but after about 2 minutes into grilling, a loud popping sound and the tec-radiant burner goes out, this happens everytime I use the radiant burners

The radient burner most likely has a crack in the top. This will make the pop and the burner will go out. Inspect the top of the burner for any cracks, if you find one, the only solution is to replace the burner. Since these burners get very hot, I do not recommend having the grill lid closed when these burners are being used, this can cause them to overheat and crack the top surface.

Flare behind temperature knobs on jenn-air gas grill

This seems to be a problem for most Jenn-Air users. The burners are defective, rusted or clogged and allowing the flame to "back up." You most likely have a melted electronic ignitor as well as gas valve damage. The new burners that I received this week for my model 720-0061-LP are 1/2 inch shorter than previous versions. Time will tell if this fixed the problem. I would call Nexgrill and get all new burners and inspect the gas valve area for damage. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, glad they were free since I have a lifetime warranty on my model.

My grill burners burn unevenly and usually too high. Adjustment?

If this is a natural gas grill, check to see if it has a regulator on the gas line. If it does not, you can install a regulator to reduce the gas flow.

My grill does not come up to the proper temperature. There is nothing that seems to restrict the gas flow. There is a sputter sounds so I think the gas feed is restricted. Can you help or suggest what may...

Check to see if the fuel hose is bent or kinked.
• Make sure the grill area is clear of dust.
• Make sure the burner and orifice are clean.
• Check for spiders and insects.
• The regulator has a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a leak. This safety device can be triggered without a gas leak. To reset the safety device, turn all burners "OFF" and close the Liquid Propane cylinder valve. Disconnect the regulator from the Liquid Propane cylinder and wait 1 minute. Reconnect the regulator to the Liquid Propane cylinder and slowly open the valve until the valve is fully open. Light all burners and observe the temperature.

The burners sounds like a jet plane.

make sure the burners are clean, each and every little hole must be clean. It sounds as though the flame is burning near the inlet of the burner which can occur if the holes are restricted too much.
