The grill gets hot but doesn't brown the food?


Normally, if a grill element fails, it just stops working. So if they are working then on full power, both elements should get red hot! If this is the case, all I suggest is that you try experimenting with different heights with the grill tray. And by the way, don't shut the door when you are grilling as this shuts the grill off!

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!!

I need a new burner for my Broilking 531/33GBC and the grid the coals rest on. Pity all the new BQs are all just tin.


Onward Manufacturing, the company who makes Broil King grills, doesn't make a gas grill that uses coals above the burners. I have been a Broil King Dealer since 2005, I haven't seen one yet. Are you certain you have a "Broil King Grill?" As the Model Number 531/33GBC, you listed, doesn't show up in my data base for Broil King. Perhaps you have a Broilmate grill? Which is made by a different company.

Please advise. Thanks

My control knobs are getting really hot and are actually melting


Sounds like the Venturi Valves on the burner may be partially clogged and the flame is big firing around the burner orifice. This is fixable, but requires removing and cleaning all the burners and their venturi valves.

One other thing it might be, and this will depend on how old the grill is and how well cared for the grill is. The burner's manifold may be leaking. That's a more serious problem, that requires quite a bit of work to replace.

Go with the first solution first and if the doesn't solve the problem, it will be the second one.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Recently replaced all 5 burner tubes and now when I light the grill it doesn't get hot enough - stays around 250 degrees.


Gerald, when you turned the gas tank valve back On, after replacing the burner, the OPD Valve in the grill tank partially locked up the grills gas regulator. To solve this problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the gas valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes.

2. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion,
slow).

3. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the grill first and turn it to HIGH. Does
the flame height look correct for the highest setting? If so, light the remaining burners the same
way. Now, to all the flame heights look normal for the highest setting. if so, you solved the
problem.

4. Close the hood/lid of the grill and allow it to preheat for at least 15 minutes. The temperature
reading (if your grill thermometer is correct) should between 400 & 450 degrees F, depending on
outside air temperature. Which is hot enough to sear a steak.

If none of the above corrected the problem. You will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly, because the regulator is partially locked up. You can pickup one at any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

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

Rotisserie infra red value would come on,it comes on when I hold it in...


I'm assuming, that after you release the burner knob, the infrared burner goes out. You need to hold the knob in until the infrared burner gets glowing hot. If it doesn't remain lit after doing that, the thermocouple that keeps the burner lit, either needs cleaning due to a grease build up or replacing the thermocouple entirely. To clean it, alcohol and a cotton ball works well.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.
