    FIrst burner appears to light OK, but as you turn on the 2nd burner, the flame goes down drastically and the unit never heats up. Turning the 3rd burner on makes matters worse and in somne cases the flames go out on all burners,

We assembled our new Genesis E-310 yesterday. Went together nicely, but won't heat above 350 or so. It should get to 500-550 degrees withing 10-15 mins. Any ideas of what could be wrong?

Your Question Preview Fire Magic A790i Logo Problem with A790i Firemagic a790i flames pop and knobs get hot Posted by Author imageGuest on 3/24/2013 Details not getting good pressure to all 3 b


It sounds as if the burners may not be properly seated on the valves. Instead of all of the gas flowing into the burners, some of the gas is escaping behind the front panel and creating a fire behind the front panel which would heat the valve shafts and melt the knob inserts. This call also be caused by partially blocked burner venturi and valve orifices.

Check to make sure the end of each valve is completely inside of each burner.

My knobs get to hot to touch when turning off


More than likely, the vinturi valve on each burner is clogged and the burners flames are back firing and reaching the control knobs. Stop using the grill, until you disassemble the burners, clean them and the venturi valves, The venturi is an opening on the sides of the burner, where it slides of each burner orifice. Spiders like to build nest in them.

For a more visual look at what I'm talking about, go to the follwing link for Sure Fire Heat. They manufactured the grill for Amana. Go down the list of Amana grills until you find yours or one like it. In the Owners Manual there should be a section on Maintenance, which will show you how to remove the burners and clean them.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Our weber grill is suddenly getting too hot... even with only 1 of the 3 burners turned on it is over 400 degrees... any ideas?


Sounds like the regulator is not controlling the flow of gas. Try this. 1. Turn gas tank and burner control knobs off. 2. Turn tank valve on VERY slow. 3. Open front burner knob on and lite grill. Wait a minute and turn on addition burners, (if needed).

The grill only reaches 200 degrees


PROBLEM
Barbecue temperature only
reaches 250° to 300° in the HIGH
position.

CHECK
The excess flow safety device,
which is part of the barbecue to
cylinder connection, may have
activated.

CURE
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 on slowly. Refer to
“Lighting Instructions”.

Char Broil commercial grill won't heat pass 300 degrees


I had a similar problem and thought the propane kept running out....come to find out it was a defective regulator. $21 at the local ACE store as running to LOWES and trying to get a point across to a 17 yr old summer help college kid for a intermittent problem seemed more challenging then it was worth. Would barely light the burners and would not get over 200 degrees. Ripped it apart...blew through all the orfices including the regulator put it all back together and would work for a while then fail again. Good luck!
