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..
"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.

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!!
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!
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!!
who said you cant?????????? use whatever the hell you want to....... ceramic or lava.... just make sure you keep the flame down to about medium and give those steaks a good two days to marinade and call me when your gonna heve em ready!!!!!!!!!!!! need a good marinade recipe??? email@example.com shoot me an email and i;ll hook you up with the best ive tried.... good luck
Shut off the gas at the tank and disconnect everything.
Unscrew the plastic cap on the regulator. Inside is a flat screw top that has a single slot or an X-shaped slot. This is the pressure adjustment. It controls the diaphragm that regulates gas flow.
Note where it's set. Use a Sharpie to mark the adjuster on its edge (place a dot there), and make a corresponding mark on the threads next to it.
Next, use a large screwdriver or a coin to spin the adjuster counterclockwise three or four times. Pay attention to the number of turns. Now, screw it back in (clockwise) the exact same number of turns, stopping at the index mark you made.
Next, turn the adjuster two turns clockwise, followed by two turns counterclockwise. The idea is to end up where it was originally set. This action unsticks the regulator's valve seat. Done.
Put the cap back on, hook it all up, open the tank valve, and make fire.
You need a bigger, more powerful grill. It sounds like the one you have cannot keep up with the amount of food you want to cook. Other than making sure any controls are set on maximum, there's not much you can do about this. Return the unit for a refund.
