Burners seem to have less heat. Very small flames


Hello Carol, here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help resolve this issue:


First, make sure that burner caps are properly installed and are on the correct burner. Similar sized caps can mistakenly be placed on the wrong burner.


Moisture can clog the ports after cleaning. Lightly fan the flame to remove moisture. Allow the burner to operate until moisture is gone and the flame is full.


On some surface burner designs there are different size ports that produce flames of different lengths. This is normal.


Lastly, the burner ports may be clogged. With the burner turned off, it is recommended for a professional to use a small-gauge wire or a needle to clean the ports.


If the range continues to experience the same issue, it could possibly have a defective power supply, gas supply, or clogged ports. I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the appliance.

My Weber genesis silver is working but the flame is very weak. Is there a way to clear the burners?


Occasionally you can clear air from the burners by turning the burners on (with gas shut off) and disconnect the propane tank. Once the tank is disconnected, turn the burners off and reconnect the tank. This should dispel any air. You can also take a wire brush and "gently" brush the burners. Occasionally a little debris will clog the burner. Since this seems to be happening on all of your burners, it's a good bet it's air causing the problem.

Burner lights but then shuts off after about a minute


What's happening is a good indication that the pilot assembly and the burner assembly may need cleaning. Insects can really clog it up. If after thoroughly cleaning the pilot and burner assemblies the burner still shuts off,check the gas tank and make sure it's at east 2/3rds full. After reconnecting the hose to the tank, open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until the valve is full open. Then attempt to light the pilot and the burner. If every things works as it should, you solved the problem.

If you find you need to order a thermocouple, I have provided a link to the Blue Rhino Company, the manufacturer of Uniflame Patio Heaters and you can order it thru them.

We have a spirit grill with 3 burners. I can light the grill, but burners 1 & 2 don't have a nice line of blue flame like burner 3. Burner 2 is especially bad with orange flames on the right and left...


Are you sure there's adequate gas in the tan? If so do the following:

Disconnect the LP tank from the grill hose. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY,VERY SLOWLY, until it is full open. Light your burners individually and turn to highest flame setting, before lighting the next burner and so on.

If that solved your problem GREAT. Remember to turn the tank on that way in the future.
If it didn't you'll need to remove the burners and clean each one.

Hope this helped to get you back up and grilling again.

Flame will not run high, just spotty and then goes out.


Ok, here is a check list for your most common gas grill lighting problems: skip #1 is you just filled it.

1) Check your tank. Is it empty or nearly empty? The tare weight (T.W.) of your cylinder is stamped on the collar. This is the weight of your empty cylinder, usually around 18 lbs. Weigh it on your bathroom scale2_bing.gif. Propane weighs 4.25 lbs/gal. If it weighs around 20 lbs or less - Refill it. If not, go to #2.

2) Make sure you didn't turn the gas tank valve on too fast. Some gas hoses have a built-in excess flow valve that stops the flow of gas to a trickle if opened too fast. Close the tank valve and let sit for a few minutes. Or just disconnect it and reconnect it. Turn the tank valve very slowly and then try lighting it again. If it doesn't help, go to #3.

3) Is the igniter sparking? Some are battery2_bing.gif powered-check the battery or replace it. If you have a standard push button piezzo igniter or a rotary style2_bing.gif igniter, check for spark. Can you hear or see the spark? It's hard to see the spark in bright daylight. It's easier to view the spark at dusk or dawn. It should spark an "arc" at the burner. If not, adjust it if necessary. The igniter wire may have a short, causing the spark to arc somewhere else along the wire and not at the burner. Replace igniter wire. It's also possible the igniter tip where it sparks has a cracked or broken porcelain portion of the igniter, causing the spark to not arc at the tip where it's supposed to. Replace the igniter piece. If not, go to #4.

4) You may have a rusted, clogged or damaged burner or venturi tube. With a flashlight, check for spider webs, wasp nests or dirt (mud) dauber nests in the opening of the venturi tube where it connects at each gas valve orifice. Clean it out manually or blow it out with air compressor. Make sure the air adjustment opening (on the end of the burner's venturi tube) has not been changed. If it's closed too much, it will be difficult to light and cause lazy yellow flames. If it's not clogged, the burner may just be old and rusted and the burner holes are not allowing very much gas through anymore. It's also possible the burner has rusted so bad, the burner holes have been enlarged, it is falling apart or has cracks along the burner seams. If so, replace the burner(s) immediately. It is unsafe to use. Your local propane co can usually order the parts you need and some will even do the work, if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself. Bring with you the Make, Model and Serial number of the grill, so they can order the correct parts for your specific grill. Also specify whether it's natural gas2_bing.gif or propane.

5) If none of these resolve the issues you are having, it is also possible you have a faulty or defective regulator, which may mean replacement. If the pressure still seems too low and none of the above has helped, and you have a silver/gray regulator; many have an adjustment screw on the top center of the diaphragm. Remove the outer cap and turn the inside screw clockwise in 1/4 turns to increase the pressure until the desired flame size is accomplished. Flames should be as blue as possible, but will burn orange if there is food or drippings on it. Yellow flames are not good, and will soot up everything and not cook as hot as blue flames do. Yellow flames could mean you do not have the right air shutter adjustment, clogged burners, or possibly defective burners, as mentioned above in #4.

6) Also make sure you have the hose connection tightened snugly to the propane tank valve to ensure the inner valve seat is fully depressed allowing gas to exit fully without any restriction. The black plastic female fitting should be hand tightened only. Older versions that use a left-hand male brass POL valve, requires a 7/8 open end wrench or adjustable wrench to tighten.

Hope this helps! Good luck in your trouble shooting! Douglas

Wont get hot fast takes for ever


It's most likely a blockage at the burners. Make sure the burners are clean of any loose rust, dirt or spider webs. Grease drippings can also clog the burners and reduce gas flow and flame.

My charbroil grill isn't running at full power


Your venturi could be clogged up. clean the burner holes with a straightened paperclip, then take the burners out and do the same to the venturi that deliver gas to the burners. If that doesn't do it, you may have a bad regulator.
