Question about Patio Classic Barbecue Bucket Grill

Flame on gas grill is too small

I have a 2004 Kenmore grill and I only get a small flame on the three burners even when it is turned up to high.

I have plenty of fuel in the tank and I made sure the tank was turned on.  Sears put the grill together and it never had a high flame.  Now I can't even grill a hamburger.  :(

Please help me.  It is a $90 fee just to come to the house.

Thank you,

    propane gave very low flame, but flame was consistent all around both burners. Changed out tank just to discover the same problem. Thought maybe new tank had leaked its fuel since it was not turned all the way tight when we bought it. Took it back again and got another new tank. Same problem. Is it really worth it to get it fixed? Or should we just buy another grill?

Symptoms and Solutions Low Flame: The grill just doesn't want to heat up. This can be cause by several things. Taking it from the fuel source to the flame, lets start with the burner. Newer propane tanks contain a self regulating feature that will automatically slow down the flow of fuel if it thinks it's too high. This can be solved by turning the tank valve off completely and disconnecting it. Open the control valves (on the grill control panel) and ten close them. Reconnect the fuel tank and slowly turn on the valve. Now light the grill to see if that fixes it. Otherwise check the control valve(s) and venturi tubes for obstruction and alignment. Make sure that the flow of fuel is continuous. Check the burner for clogged gas holes. You can usually see this problem by observing how the grill burns. If there are spots without flame then you probably have a clogged burner.

I replaced the burners under the grill and the gas is is flowing with a very small flame but i cant get it to have a large flame. what can i do?


Easy solution. Turn off your propane grill tank. Disconnect the hose from the tank, Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose. Now, turn the tank vale on very, very slowly, until it full open. Then light each burner one at a time. Turn the flames to high.The burner flame height should have returned to normal.

Remember to turn the tank on very, very slowly each time after turning the tank off.

Happy Grilling!

Flare behind temperature knobs on jenn-air gas grill


This seems to be a problem for most Jenn-Air users. The burners are defective, rusted or clogged and allowing the flame to "back up." You most likely have a melted electronic ignitor as well as gas valve damage. The new burners that I received this week for my model 720-0061-LP are 1/2 inch shorter than previous versions. Time will tell if this fixed the problem. I would call Nexgrill and get all new burners and inspect the gas valve area for damage. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, glad they were free since I have a lifetime warranty on my model.

The flame coming out of the burner bars is small


May likely be low on propane or propane tank gate valve not opened far enough. Otherwise sounds like faulty regulator.

My grill burners burn unevenly and usually too high. Adjustment?


If this is a natural gas grill, check to see if it has a regulator on the gas line. If it does not, you can install a regulator to reduce the gas flow.
