Question about Grilling

Propane grill uneven heat

I have a new 4 burner propane grill from sams club members mark.
When I light all 4 burners, the two center burners get hot, 500 + degrees, but the outer burners only get to 350. I have done the reset the regulator thing multiple times two different ways after researching this for many days on line with no change. If I light just the two left burners the far left will get to 500 degrees and when I light just the two right burners the far right will get to 500 degrees. I therefore know that all four burners can get to 500 degrees, so its not the burners.
If I light either the two left or the two right burners and they get to 500 degrees, as soon as I light another burner the temp drops.
Hope you can help
Thanks
Mitch

SOURCE: My grill does not heat beyond 300 degrees.

Hello,

Check the excess flow safety device, which is part if the barbeque to cylinder connection, may have activated. To reset the excess flow safety device turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve off.
Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to high. Wait at least 1 minute . Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve slowly. I HAD THIS PROBLEM JUST LAST NIGHT AND FIXED IT RIGHT THEN.

An odd thing with many propane gas grills is how the regulator functions. If the tank is opened too fast the regulator over-adjusts and delivers no gas. Try this: Turn tank off and open all burner controls. This should clear the line of any gas. Close burner controls and open tank very slow. Now lite and temp should go up.

Can a Turbo STS 3 burner grill (720-0057-3b) be convert from natural gas to propane? Barbeque Galore has gone bankrupt and does not offer any assistance at their 1 800 number and I can't find any...


The original BBQ's Galore went bankrupt, but was bought by new owners, who still operate it as BBQ's Galore. However, they did buy any of the older company's parts supply. However, all you need are the burner orifices for each burner (including the rear burner) and a Hose/Regulator Assembly to connect the grill to the grill tank. Follow the conversion instructions in the Owner's Manual (see link below) and you should be able to do it.

http://www.grill-repair.com/images/grill/turbosts.pdf

I suspect if you call BBQ's Customer Support 800-752-3085. They can provide the orifices, as they are universal in fit. The Hose/Regulator Assembly can be purchased from any hardware store or home improvement center that sells grills and accessories, for about $30.00.

Once converted, you will see marked improvement in the heating capacity of Propane Gas, as opposed to Natural Gas. The grill will preheat faster and maintain higher temperatures longer.

I hope this helped you, Bradley and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Grilling!!

Julian, let's get this corrected for your 4th of July Cookout.

1. Turn the 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 valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first & turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and the fa,e height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner exactly
the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.
Always remember to 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, as the regulator is locked up. You can pick one up from any home center or hardware store that sell grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem, Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

My propane tank is full, but none of my 3 burners come on, 1 does very slightly but then goes out, help! thanks


Turn the propane tank valve to OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Then, reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner knob to high. Does the flame height look as it should? I f it does, light the remaining burners the same way, one at a time. Do all the burners burn as they should? If so, you solved the problem. If not, you need to replace the grill hose/regulator assembly. You can get one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Just take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

I just purchased a brand new tank of propane and i still have the same problem that the propane burns out of all 4 burners but at a really low flame even on high. I can not get the grill to heat up...


Turn the tank off. Disconnect the grill hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the LP tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY until it's fully open. Now, light each burner one at a time and turn it up to the highest setting. If that didn't solve the problem, repeat the previously listed steps.

If after the second attempt the burners still only maintain a low flame, you will need to replace the grill hose/regulator.

Hope this solved your problem and Happy Grilling!

Are you sure there's adequate gas in the tan? If so do the following:

Disconnect the LP tank from the grill hose. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY,VERY SLOWLY, until it is full open. Light your burners individually and turn to highest flame setting, before lighting the next burner and so on.

If that solved your problem GREAT. Remember to turn the tank on that way in the future.
If it didn't you'll need to remove the burners and clean each one.

Hope this helped to get you back up and grilling again.

If you're turning off your propane tank after each use (which is fine), you will need to turn it back on very, very slowly. The new OPD valves that are now required on all portable propane tanks, will lock up the regulator if it's turned on to fast. Also, check all the pilot orifices for clogs. And finally, be sure you have enough gas in the tank.

Middle burner looks ok but has huge yellow flame


Sounds to me like the new burner that was put on, has the wrong gas orifice in it. Possibly a nat gas orifice instead of a propane orifice. If it's a propane grill, take it to your local propane co and have them look at it. Also, sometimes just a spiderweb or dirt dobber nest in the burner's venturi tube can cause that kind of problem. Blow it out with an air compressor and see if that's the problem.

Look for spider webs in the venturi tubes, check the orfices or it could be faulty controls. Verify the tank working properly by trying on another grill.
