Question about Char-Broil Advantage 463453306

1 Answer

Grill heats up at first than will not get hotter that 350 degrees

The flame does not seem to be forceful enough ( not concentrated ). It will heat up when first lit not soon falls back down to a steady 300 to 350.

I replaced the burners and valve assembly last summer. It worked great.

Tried to grill a few times this winter and noticed it then but just thought it was beacouse of the cold temp.

Now that it is warm it is still doing the same thing.

Just bought a Weber Genesis II LX Model S-340 Natural Gas Grill. The plumber installed a 54' line, 1" in diameter. The grill will only heat up,to 400 degrees. What could be wrong?.


If he really installed a 54 foot line instead of a 54 inch line, the line is way to lone. The gas pressure isn't high enough to supply enough gas to the grill to get any hotter.

Grill will only heat to 350 degrees


I suspect the problem, is a result of either dirty and/or clogged burners and venturi valves (part of the burner). Or the grills gas regulator is partially locked close.

Since the regulator problem does not involve any real dismantling of the grill, I'll start with that solution first. The most important thing is - Do you have enough gas in the tank, for the grill to perform as it should? If it was recently filled, do the following.

1. Turn the gas valve on the tank OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3, Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON, VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow
Motion, slow)
4. Once he tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner
knob to HIGH. Dose the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same
way, until are are lit and burning. Do all the flame heights look correct when set on HIGH? If so,
you solved the problem. Close the grill's hood and allow it to heat in excess of 350 degrees. It's a
good idea to confirm that the thermometer on the grill is accurate. Place an inexpensive Oven
Thermometer (about $6.00) that will set on the grill grate(s), while you preheat the grill. When the
grill's thermometer reaches 350, raise the hood and compare it with the reading of the oven
thermometer. if they read approximately the same, then your grill thermometer is accurate. If the
oven thermometer reads higher, the grill thermometer needs to be replaced. Frankly, mind failed
to read accurately. Rather than replace it, I always use the oven thermometer, because it's not
reading the air temperature at the hood level, it's reading the temperature at the cooking level.
Which is really what I want to know.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can purchase one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

I have a natural gas hookup and my grill takes a long time to heaat up (15 minutes) and max degrees is 350 - 375. I found dust in the connection hose blew ut out. Also took grill apart and cleaned...


Unfortunately, that's the way it does on Natural Gas, in an outdoor environment. The reason being, Propane Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment. Of course, on the plus side, you don't have to get tanks refilled. With that said, the thermometer on the grill may be faulty.

To test this theory, buy an inexpensive oven thermometer (the kind that can be placed on an oven rack) and place inside the grill, when you're preheating it with the lid closed. Once you grill thermometer reaches 350 degrees, open the grill hood and compare it the two temperature readings. If the oven thermometer is reading significantly higher, then you no the grill thermometer is faulty.

Hope this helps you get back up to temperature.

It will only heat to 350 degrees, but the gage goes up to 700 degrees. In other words, how high can you get the temperature to with all burners on high? Thanks, Ron


LP or NG, all burners on high, top closed, out of the high winds (if any) 500+ degrees in 10 - 15 minutes. If not, double check temperture with a secondatry temperture device. If it an old unit, could be gas lines partially cloged. What size of flames come off of the burnes and what are the colors (AT THE BURNER, IN THE MIDDLE OF FLAME, AND AT THE TIP OF THE FLAME.). The olors will indicate the gas / oxyen mixture and therfore heating efficency and templture.)
Yellow is lowest - flame tip light blue almost imvisible is hotest.

The grill begins to heat up and stops. Only will


I believe you are out of propane. There is enough pressure to light the grill but as the liquid propane boils the temerature of the tank drops reducing pressure, and flame gose out.

Oven temperature does not get hot enough.


Hi, It sounds like the ignitor might be getting weak and opening the gas valve conditantly. Try setting a temperature and watch to see the ignitor glow. The flame should ignite within 30-45 seconds. If the flame ignites to heat rith away, it should get up to temp before shutting down.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further with this issue.

Thanks
