Calibration for craftsman 1000 degree infrared thermometer

Heaters are set between 77&78 and the thermometer reads 79.9

that's pretty accurate. If you think your thermometer is right, reduce the setting to get what you want

Grill will only heat to 350 degrees

I suspect the problem, is a result of either dirty and/or clogged burners and venturi valves (part of the burner). Or the grills gas regulator is partially locked close.

Since the regulator problem does not involve any real dismantling of the grill, I'll start with that solution first. The most important thing is - Do you have enough gas in the tank, for the grill to perform as it should? If it was recently filled, do the following.

1. Turn the gas valve on the tank OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3, Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON, VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow
Motion, slow)
4. Once he tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner
knob to HIGH. Dose the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same
way, until are are lit and burning. Do all the flame heights look correct when set on HIGH? If so,
you solved the problem. Close the grill's hood and allow it to heat in excess of 350 degrees. It's a
good idea to confirm that the thermometer on the grill is accurate. Place an inexpensive Oven
Thermometer (about $6.00) that will set on the grill grate(s), while you preheat the grill. When the
grill's thermometer reaches 350, raise the hood and compare it with the reading of the oven
thermometer. if they read approximately the same, then your grill thermometer is accurate. If the
oven thermometer reads higher, the grill thermometer needs to be replaced. Frankly, mind failed
to read accurately. Rather than replace it, I always use the oven thermometer, because it's not
reading the air temperature at the hood level, it's reading the temperature at the cooking level.
Which is really what I want to know.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can purchase one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Won't get hotter than 300 degrees

If you are confident that there is adequate gas in the tank to maintain combustion ... Turn off the tank valve and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY (I'm talking, slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank, first. Turn it to high and light the remaining burners the same way. This should solve your problem. Just remember to always turn the tank on VERY, VERY slowly after it has been turned off.

Also, it's a good idea to test your grill thermometer to see if, in fact it's accurate. Buy a regular oven thermometer and set it on the middle grill grate, near the front of the grill. Preheat your grill with the lid closed and when the grill thermometer reaches 300 degrees, open the hood and look at the temp on the oven thermometer. Are they the same or with in a few degrees of each other? If so, your grill thermometer is accurate. If not, it's faulty.

Personally, I always use an oven thermometer when preheating my grill, because it's more accurate. And only cost about $5.00 @ Walmart.

Hope this helps solve your problem. Please be kind enough to let me know.

Happy Grilling!!!
