I'ts the same today as it was back then. They still use porcelain enamel. Not paint. A couple of things that could ease your mind. Paint has like a kerosene smell to it. Also, drop a chunk in water for a few days, paint will not dissolve in water.
Be sure your outdoors in the open. Be sure that the cover is off. Use a large match stick (fire place)or a butane grill lighter to burn the gas. Place the lite match/lighter to the burner head and open the gas bottle. After 6 seconds, If the burner head does not light shut the gas bottle off. Try again till it lights.
holy cow, i am going through exactly the same thing right now! the orifices we got when we bought the grill 5 years ago don't appear to be the correct ones. what's left of BBQ Galore's customer service hasn't been able to help us. i'm pursuing a solution with a local propane dealer, will let you know if it works out!
1. The burner could be rusted and needs cleaned or repaired.
2. A spider or other insect has built a web in the inlets of the burners.
3. If you are using a 20lb propane tank, it could be overfilled.
4. If you turn off your grill using the propane tank valve and not the valves on the control panel, it may cause the overfill protection device to engage and decrease gas flow.
5. The regulator could be faulty.
6. The jets(orifices) where the gas comes out may be sized to small or may be clogged.
Using a grill cover is a very smart move. That wil usually prevent the peeling, but the high heat can certainly take its toll. Your best option is to get a heat tolerant paint that is designed for that type of surface. The new spray paints that are made for plastics might work. Just be sure to always check the heat capcaity.
From Weber.com Don’t worry, it’s not paint. The inside surfaces of our grill lids are not painted, they are coated with baked-on porcelain enamel which cannot peel. What you are noticing is a deposit of grease and smoke that collects during normal use. During use, the grease and smoke vapors slowly oxidize into carbon and collect on the inside of your lid. This deposit will eventually peel, and looks very similar to paint. The peeling normally starts in the center of the lid and spreads outward. It may come off in sheets or flakes, and is shiny on one side and dull on the other. These carbon deposits are non-toxic. But you might want to regularly remove the build-up. Fortunately, the peeling is easy to remove. Simply brush off all loose particles with a brass brush before you start grilling. To prevent future build-up, after every grilling session, while the grill lid is warm—not hot—wipe it with paper towels or a mild soap-and-water solution.
