Troubleshooting amana gas 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.

My7 Baby q doesnt get hot enought to sear steaks


Their are several things that can cause this problem:

1. The burner(s) need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned.
2, Low amount of gas in the tank.
3. The grill's gas regulator is partially seized.

The first two are easy for you to solve, The third one is to if you do the following:

Turn the gas tank valve OFF. If you're using a 20lb LP Gas grill tank, disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes, If you're using a small 1 lb cylinder, turn it OFF and remove it from the grill. after 5 minutes, reconnect the hose to the tank or reinsert the small cylinder and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open light the burner(s) and turn it to the highest setting. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly (if you're using a 20Lb LP Grill Tank). Which you can find at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. If you're using the smaller insert-able tank, you will need to replace the tank's hookup and regulator mechanism.

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

What # should i use for 1in. t-bone steak mod. ggr50b


To first sear the steak on both sides, turn it to it's highest setting. After both sides have seared for about 3-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness. Then turn the temp down to medium and continue to grill to the way you like it turning it once more. Never use a fork to turn the meat. It pierces it and allows those wonderful juices to drain out. Use tongs instead. Once it's cooked to your liking, take it Off the grill and allow it to rest 3-5 minutes. That way, when you cut into it, most of those wonderful juices will remain in the meat.

Hope this helped you and enjoy your steak! Happy grilling!

My thoughts, are you turning tank off after cooking, not only turning of cooking valves but also turn off tank, if you don't gas will leak out. If you do turn tank off, then you have a leaking valve in the tank.

What are some close cooking times for infrared grills


In only three minutes, the grill hit 1600° F, nearly three times hotter than a standard gas grill. Steak-Five minutes later, it was done to medium-rare perfection.
Chicken Breast After 10 minutes — half the time it normally takes, it was done. The grill uses the same radiation as similar to a microwave if that helps with determining other times. if this helped please rate me and let me know...good luck!!

Gas grill not hot enough


Always turn your tank on first. Then the burners.

Try this, turn the burners on for a minute and then off with the regulator and hose off the tank, then hook it back up and very slowly open the tank. Then fire off the burners.

If this doesn't work, try replacing the hose/regulator.

Gas grill overheated


I might have an Idea to what happened. All grills have a drip pan, most all new grills have a drain for grease that falls from our savory meats. Well, if, (not saying that you haven't) but if, you have not cleaned the drip pan, there is still grease left over that gets absorbed by food droppings. IF this is the case, you had a ticking time bomb of a grease fire. The grill did not overheat, the grease caught fire. You said your grill was a year old; so the regulator did not go full blast and when they do go bad they do not let gas pass through.

Not trying to preach to no one because I have done it myself, never leave your gas grill on and unattended. I hate to say it but even the owners manual says it.

I hope I did not come off the wrong way and I hope this might give you an idea/thought of what happened.
