Question about Brinkmann Grilling

1 Answer

My gas grill sprays alot of gas when i first turn it on, the has very low flame

My 4 Burner Brinkman Grill does not put off enough heat to cook on. Tried to "reset the regulator" by turning off and disconnecting tank, letting it set for a couple minutes. Reconnecting everything and turning on the tank, letting it set for a couple of minutes before restarting it. When I do this, the grill will initially allow a large amount of flow, and light with big flames, but will then go back to a low burn only. And again not putting off enough heat to cook on. No leaks or anything else going on, changing propane tanks does not change this problem. Help!

Hi axmaster892
You have a faulty gas regulator...
*********************************************
Gas Regulators are notorious for doing just what yours is doing.
After sitting in the same position for a length of time they freeze in that position, then along comes a grain of sand, or other debris and blocks the gas flow.
Remove the regulator if possible, if not try it in place with the tank removed.
Get a plastic headed hammer and gently but firmly tap on the regulator, your trying to free up the diaghram inside.
After tapping and freeing the regulator diaphram reinstall and you will be good to go.
If this does not work, the replace the regulator as it is defective.
Some regulators are ajustable, if you have one of those then try to adjust the regulator, you will see a cap on top of the regulator, that is where the adjustment screw is located.

This problem most likely is with your regulator. if you decide to replace it please make sure you get the right size replacement. Some salespeople dont know the difference there are four common sizes from class 1 to class 4. If you take the old one with you make sure you match the numbers up with a new one.

Hope this helps You

SOURCE: BBQ Galore Capt'n Cook 4 burner gas grill won't get hot.

Most modern gas regulators have a safety feature to prevent gas left on. If you shut off the tank first and then turn off the burners, it will trigger and keep the gas flow at a very reduce flow to prevent you from turning on the tank again with the burners left on and not realizing it. Turn everything off and then turn on tank first, followed by the burners and this will solve most problems of a low flame or a bbq that won't get hot.

SOURCE: cannot get good flame on the burner of my baby weber grill. I've tried cleaning it checked hose, tank, regulator, seems to have good flow, but low flame only, even when set in high????????

I had this problem with a brand new grill so it wasn't grease in the hose. Due to the new propane regulators you have to turn the propane tank on for at least a minute before turning the grill to light. Let the tank sit in the light position for five seconds and then you light the grill. This will keep air from getting into the intake hose and will keep your gas flame roaring high.

I was only able to get the grill up to 250 degrees before I found this fix posted on the Weber site. It is listed as the number one solution in the FAQ section.

Brinkman grill 3 burner pro series 8300 won't


To restore gas to the burners, follow the instructions below.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

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

BOUGHT A BRINKMANN 2545 GRILL LAST NIGHT. WE HAVE IT ATTACHED TO GAS LINE COMING FROM HOUSE. GRILL WILL LIGHT BUT IT IS A LITTLR FLAME AND THE OTHER BURNERS WILL NOT LIGHT?


If you have a high pressure 2lb LP Gas System feeding your house, you will need and inline regulator for you grill.

If you have Natural Gas, the grill will have to be converted to Natural Gas. You can do this by changing burner orifices. You can purchase them from Brinkman. That is, if Brinkman approves the change to Natural Gas. Some gas grills aren't convertible.

How do I light the grill manually


Get a butane grill lighter. Open the hood of your grill. Remove the cooking grates and one by one turn the burner to low. Light the butane grill lighter prior to turning the burner on and as you turn the burner to low touch the flame of the lighter to the burner. Leave all burners on low, until you replace the cooking grates. Be very very careful, as you don't want gas to buildup before each burner is lit.

Then contact Brinkman for replacement ignitors.

My weber grill is not putting out enough heat--both burners ignite, but I can't turn them up to get a higher flame/higher temparature. The grill is about 5 years old. How can I clean the burners to get a...


Hello,

follow the below procedures on how to clean the burners for your grill:

Shut off the gas. It is very important that you turn off the gas valve to your BBQ before you can begin to clean it. This is found on the hose that attaches to your propane tank, simply turn the valve all the way to the right.
Escape any remaining gas. Next turn all the burner knobs to the highest setting and allow the remaining gas, if any, to escape. Make sure you have the grill hood in the open position before doing this.
Let the Grill vent for five minute: In order to ensure that the remaining propane has ventilated properly, leave your grill open and do not begin to clean it for at least five minutes.
Brush grill bars. Using your grill cleaning brush, firmly brush the surface of the grill bars in a forwards-backwards motion with the steel from the brush sweeping across the surface. Once you have brushed the surface flip each grill bar over and brush the other side.
Saturate with grill cleaner spray and repeat. Using your grill cleaner spray thoroughly saturate the surface of the grill bars and brush both sides. Set the grill bars aside after you finish so you can access the interior of the BBQ to clean it.
Remove burner plates and clean. All gas grills have metal plates which cover and protect the flame pilots during cooking. These will typically become covered with ash, and burnt grease and sauce over time. Simply remove them from the grill and brush them down. After you have brushed them once, saturate them with the cleaner spray and brush them down again. Set the plates aside so you can finish cleaning the rest of your grill.
Clean interior of grill. The plates will only catch so much, still sauce and grease will fall to the bottom of the grill and turn to ash. Using your grill brush, jar all of this ash free. Douse it in cleaner spray so it condenses and scoop it up with the paper towels.
Clean grease catch. Many newer gas grills will come with a grease catching plate. You can usually access these through the rear of the BBQ. They generally have a small metal handle and will easily slide out. Remove this grease catch, and brush and clean it thoroughly.
Clean exterior of grill. Using your grill cleaner spray, saturate the exterior of the grill and wipe it down with the paper towels. Repeat this process until the exterior is entirely clean.
Reassemble the grill. Now you can put all the pieces back together in your grill and turn the gas valve on again.
I hope the above helps to solve your problem.

Good luck.

Cooking info


You can print a new manual off of www.chargriller.com. But, the basics are:
1) Take cooking grates off of grill
2) Put enough charcoal on the grill to cover the desired cooking area two coal layers high
3) Pile up desired amount of charcoal (laid out in step 2)
4) Spray lighter fluid all over charcoal pile
5) Light the pile
6) Let the pile burn until the flames die out and most of the coal has turned white
7) Spread the coals back out (use tongs they will be hot). Put any coals that are still black on top of the white ones.
8) Put your cooking grates back on the grill and let the last black coals turn white and the grates heat up.
9) Now cook!

I have a Kenmore 4 burner grill that I purchased about 3-4 weeks ago. 3 of the 4 burners have nice blue flames and work very well but the left middle burner gets a huge yellow flame no matter what temp it...


does the same burner flame turn blue if other burners decreast in flow-with that burner on high and others low-is it still yellow? if so Gas Valve needs to be replaced.

Gas grill lights but doesn't get very hot


I had this same problem especially when the tank on my 5 burner 2 year-old Kenmore was about half full. The solution above fixed it. I was used to opening the gas fully, turning one burner to high and clicking the button. If I would have read the front of the grill I would have seen that this was incorrect. I turned off the grill completely, unhooked the regulator and reconnected it. With one burner on high I began clicking the button BEFORE I turned on the gas. I slowly turned the gas on one quarter turn and it lit up full flame. I slowly turned the gas another quarter turn and lit the second burner. I slowly opened the gas all the way and lit the third and so on. That did the trick!
