Question about Uniflame FG2204C Grill

1 Answer

I just purchased a new portable gas grill. Burner Is melting.

After assembly I followed the directions to "heat clean the parts before use. Shortly after I lit it (2-3Min) the burner started glowing red and drooping. The small burner holes are not round anymore, only oval, leaving an inconsistent flame. I lit it a couple more times and the same thing happened, red hot melting burner. This can't be normal. I have owned several small gas grills and never had this happen. It seems really unsafe.

SOURCE: Gas grill caught fire

The anwer is not the one you want before Labor day cook-outs. Since the unit is under recall, go the manufacture's site, or any site specified in the recall notices, and follow the directions, to get replacement parts for all damaged parts from the fire, as well as the original defective parts. Hopefully you can take the unit in for exchange for a fully assembled one. Be polite but firm in wanting the units assembled gratis.

Bob, your wife is partially correct. However, both burners should have blue flames with orange tips. Cleaning the burners and the their venturi valves, should solve the problem. When I say cleaning them, I mean removing and cleaning them.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

Can a Turbo STS 3 burner grill (720-0057-3b) be convert from natural gas to propane? Barbeque Galore has gone bankrupt and does not offer any assistance at their 1 800 number and I can't find any...


The original BBQ's Galore went bankrupt, but was bought by new owners, who still operate it as BBQ's Galore. However, they did buy any of the older company's parts supply. However, all you need are the burner orifices for each burner (including the rear burner) and a Hose/Regulator Assembly to connect the grill to the grill tank. Follow the conversion instructions in the Owner's Manual (see link below) and you should be able to do it.

http://www.grill-repair.com/images/grill/turbosts.pdf

I suspect if you call BBQ's Customer Support 800-752-3085. They can provide the orifices, as they are universal in fit. The Hose/Regulator Assembly can be purchased from any hardware store or home improvement center that sells grills and accessories, for about $30.00.

Once converted, you will see marked improvement in the heating capacity of Propane Gas, as opposed to Natural Gas. The grill will preheat faster and maintain higher temperatures longer.

I hope this helped you, Bradley and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Grilling!!

I have a Vermont Casting VM450SSP Grill that needs a new Hose Regulator-S/B Valve Assembly. I have ordered two separate times what "Appliance Factory Parts" thinks is the part I need and both...


This ma=y be a case of changes in parts for your VC Grill. The ownership of Vermont Castings changed 6 years ago, when Majestic Fireplace, who was then the owner went bankrupt and Monesson Hearth products bought VC in the bankruptcy. Shortly there after, Monesson made some sweeping changes to the grill line (your model was discontinued) and really up graded what Majestic Fireplace had done with that line of grills. Overall, they started building a better quality grill.

Unless you have a piped in high pressure propane gas system, the one that Appliance Factory Parts furnished you should work fine (based on what I saw on their website). In addition, if you purchased your grill, prior to the change in 20lb LP Gas Grill Tanks Valves, 6 years ago. Some manufacturers changed their grill hoses to conform with the new OPD Valve grill tanks. It wasn't required, they just did it, to avoid regulators locking up, when the tank valve is opened to fast.

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

We have a brand new George Forman Grill2Go propane grill for outdoor use. We followed the directions for assemblying the regulator to the propane bottle, did the test for leaks, etc, But when we turned on...


You got part of the solution correct. The 5 minute part, but you skipped a couple of steps.

Turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, Slowly (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, turn the burner ON and push the ignitor button. When the burner lights, turn it to it's highest setting. If you have 2-burners, light the second the same way you did the first one. Do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.

If the above didn't solve the problem. you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. As the OPD Valve in the gas tank, permanently locked up the regulator. Since your is a brand new grill with warranty that's enforce, contact the manufacturer for a replacement. Have you proof of Purchase handy, when you call them.

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

How to replace oven igniter on amana ACS3350AS gas range


The following link explains step-by-step how to replace an igniter in a gas range:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

The replacement process is pretty standard with nearly all gas ranges. You can go to appliancepartspros.com for reference drawings to assist you as well. The oven burner assemblies are listed under the "Cavity" section.

If you have not purchased an igniter yet, the part number is AP4041245. If the connector plug does not match, there should be instructions that direct you to splice the wires using ceramic wire lugs. DO NOT use standard wire lugs. They will melt due to the high heat in the oven. The wires and connectors on these oven igniters are heat resistant. If ceramic lugs are not included with the igniter, you may have to purchase them separately. The part number is AP3440631.

This is a fairly simple repair, but if you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Solair Grill not staying lit


If sounds like you might have a problem with your gas flow valve. If this is the case, it will need to be repaired or replaced. The parts would have to be purchased directly from the manufacturer of these portable grills.

I need the assembly instructions for a Four Seasons Gas Grill


I purchased this grill and assembled it yesterday. I noted the area that is providing confusion as it is wrong. Please follow the following instructions. It is quite simple when you have a background in electrical and electronics engineering. These directions should translate my knowledge into step by step instructions for all.

1. Attach the two thinner wires with two terminals on each wire, from the front of the grill head to the larger (Input or Control) terminals on the igniter assembly. These two wires are from the push to turn micro switches on each of the burner control knobs on the grill head. Attach the two smaller terminals on these thinner wires to the micro switch on the side burner control connected as part of the regulator and hose assembly.

2. Attach the three thicker wires from the front of the grill head to three of the six smaller (output) terminals on the igniter assembly. These wires go to the igniters themselves.

3. Connect the two thicker wires from the rear of the grill head to two of the six output terminals on the igniter assembly. The small wire is for the igniter on the bottom infrared burner and the larger, thermally insulated wire, connects to the igniter on the rear infrared burner.

4. Connect the lead from the side burner to the remaining small output terminal on the igniter assembly.

5. Mount the igniter to the front of the right side shelf by removing the battery cover and hexagonal nut. Insert the shaft through the hole in the front of the right side shelf and secure with the hexagonal nut. Replace the battery cap. Do not install the battery at this time.

6. Mount the side burner control by inserting the long end of the control into the side burner assembly. Attach the control to the front of the right side shelf with the two screws held in the front of the control assembly. NOTE: You must remove the screws from the control assembly and insert them through the Off/On bezel and front panel of the right side shelf before screwing them back into the control assembly. Install the control knob for the right side shelf. Verify that the connections to the side burner control micro switch made in step 1 are still intact.

7. Insert the battery into the igniter assembly by removing the batter cap and inserting the AA size battery with the positive (pointed) end out. Replace the battery cap.

8. Test the igniter assembly prior to installing the gas tank and installing the “Flame Tamers” and grates by pushing in on each burner control knob in turn. Listen for a popping sound and look for sparks at each burner.

I hope this helps.
