Question about Amana 5939 Grill
I am having a problem with an amana gas grill that we bought in august and have only used a few times grilling steaks. we have changed gas tanks thinking that they were sold empty because the flame only stays low, there is no heat to cook. we replaced the regulator worked when we tested it then the next day tried to cook on it and it is doing the same thing.. What to do next? frustrating..
From a tag that came with the grill -
"To ensure proper gas flow, all of the burner control valves MUST be off before opening the LP cas cylinder valve.
When turning on the LP gas cylinder valve, make sure to open the valve SLOWLY two complete turns to ensure proper gas flow.
All LP tanks now come equipped with a leak detection device internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly it will restrict the gas supply to the appliance. Opening the valve rapidly may simulate a gas leak, causing the safety device to activate, restricting gas flow and causing low flames or poor ignition.
Opening the valve slowly will insure this safety feature is not falsely triggered."
I would guess you triggered the tank failsafe inadvertently.
