SOURCE: I Have a genesis grill from 2008. I can not get

Have you checked the flame heights when turned to HIGH, on all the main burners. If they're low, then that's the problem. Which can be caused by several things: Burners need cleaning. The Venturi valves are clogged. The grill's regulator is partially closed.

I'm pretty sure you know how to solve the first to causes. So, I'll only deal with the third one.

Turn the propane tank valve 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 valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way and check their flame height. Do all of them look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem your need to replace your hose/regulator assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

SOURCE: how do we fix a gas grill that doesn't cook evenly

Usually if you're have hot and cold spots, it's the burners that need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. In addition, cleaning the venturi valves while the burners are out, is equally important. The Venturi valves are part of each burner. You will see them near the open end of the burner (looks like 2 slots cut into each side of the burner) where it fits over the burner orifice. While the burners are out, closely inspect each one for corrosion or rust thru. If you find severe corrosion or rust thru, the burner(s) should be replaced.

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

SOURCE: My husband and I inherited a Charbroil gas grill

I searched my parts catalog for your model number and came up empty. I believe that I may have parts that will work for you. The closet model number to what you have listed is #4639122. This model takes the angle shaped flame tamers. This model also lists a briquette grate. You can go to my website, www.minxenterprisesinc.com and check out this model number and it will give you dimensions for the parts. You can see if they will fit. I would not get lava rock, purchase either ceramic or porcelian briquettes, as they work much better.

If this is a propane (LP) grill, try replacing the regulator and hose that goes to the tank. It sounds like the grill is not getting enough gas.

Where is the ignite button located


Hi phillzy21
If the main grilling burners don't ignite, try lighting them several times using the snap ignition. If that doesn't work, try using a match. In humid and windy conditions, sometimes the snap ignitions do not work properly. Make sure that the hood is fully open. Also, ensure that your gas is turned on and that the valve is fully open. Next, take out both the heat distribution plates and cooking grate. Turn the grill backwards, and hit the snap igniter a few times and look for a spark. If you see a spark, the igniter is working properly.

The Tuscany Gas Grill line was manufactured by Sure Heat. I'm not sure that the parts your need are replaceable, as they are considered as part of the grill's body. However, you can call their Customer Support Dept @ 800-229-5647, to see if they can help you.

How do I get best results with the weber BBQ as far as heat efficiency


You can actually get some good cooking tips at the weber on-line site. That said, you really don't want to concentrate on efficiency but rather on the type of food you are cooking. I always used to stack the brickets in the beginning to get them lit and graying and then spread them for an even heat to enable cooking on all of the grill surface. If you need more concentrated heat from below then leave them stacked or in a bricket rack.

Our food doesn't seem to be cooking properly.....it is taking a long time, and seems to kind of "simmer", rather than grill, even though the burners are both on and turned full on.

Is there a place where I can find the cooking times for meats? Our old grill had a wonderful booklet which listed the cooking times for a one inch steak, chicken breast, ribs, etc. Thanks!


Since all grills heat and cook differently, time is not always the best judge for cooking meats. Use what I and many other professional griller's use, an instant read insertable Meat Thermometer. They are not expensive and can found in the kitchen accessories dept of any big box store. I'm not talking about some electronic gadget. I'm talking about the same thing professional chefs use. It's small, fits in your pocket and has the cooking temperatures for beef, pork, fowl, fish, etc written on the side of it's holder. Whether you like it rare to well done, the temperature range is indicated on the side of the holder.

Keep in mind, the thermometer on a grill is reading the air temperature when the hood is closed. Not the temperature at the cooking grates. Which can be 50 to 100 degrees F, hotter.

If this doesn't sound like want you want to try. Go to www.foodnetwork.com and I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for. Plus, some GREAT grilling recipes.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

Do you sell just the cooking surface on the sanyo HPS SG3 indoor grill. The coating has all come off. Thank You


No, sorry.

FixYa is an online information resource only and does not sell tangible goods of any kind. You haven't even stated the country and region/state you're in, so I can't even suggest a supplier.

Do I need briquettes for my weber silver grill


No, you don't use briquettes with a charcoal grill. Charcoal is slow to heat up any way, adding lava rock (briquettes) would make it even slower and hard to keep lit. However, its OK to add cooking wood chunks after the charcoal has heated up, to add a smokey flavor.

Happy Grilling!!

No problem, how do you grill an italian sausage, **** before grilling or after turning


Italian Sausage is fun to grill.Bring the sausage up to room temperature before grilling. That way they will cook evenly. Preheat your grill to medium heat (350 is fine). Place the sausage links on the grill and cook slowly. Turn the links frequently, so that all sides get that light crispy outer texture and cook evenly. Never ever use a fork to move or turn the sausage links. Always use tongs. You don't want to pierce the meat and loose all those tasty juices. Depending on how many you're cooking, 15 to 20 minutes is usually enough. Remove one from the grill and test it for donness, by slicing it in half with a knife. If the inside is still pink, give them 5 more minutes. If it's not, remove the sausages and enjoy!

I like ,with sauteed onions and lots of Plockman's Mustard.

KENMORE Gas Grill 141-152210 Kenmore 437 sq. in cooking will only heat to 250 degrees


sudsy, this exact same thing would happen to me every time I changed a tank. I know it's nothing to do with the grill itself. I would have to seat and reseat the regulator hose to the tank a couple of times before it would start heating normally. Your model has 3 burners and I suspect that the flame is real low on each one even on the high setting. Try connecting and disconnecting the tank a couple of times and see if it comes to life. If worse comes to worse you can order a new regulator hose. Part number P3632L. Catriver..post back.
