Second third and fourth burner will not light?


Susan, there are several reasons that can cause the problem you described. The first being that theburners that won't light need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. The cleaning also requires cleaning the Venturi Valve on each burner. The Venturi Valve will look like 2 slots cut into the side of each burner tube near the burner's open end, that fits over the burner orifice. Spiders like to build nest in the Venturi Valves. Be sure to turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank, before attempting any work on the grill. After you have finished cleaning everything, reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until it is fully open.
Then light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. If the flame height kooks correct, light the remaining burners the same way. If all the burners lit and the flame heights look correct, you solved the problem (with a little help).

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

One side of the grill is much hotter than the other side.


The problem you're experiencing is usually caused by dirty or clogged burner and the burner's venturi valves (part of each burner, located on the open end of the burner). Removing and thoroughly cleaning the burners and the valves will resolve the problem. It will also give you the opportunity to inspect each burner for rust. Be sure to turn the tank valve OFF, before attempting any service on the grill. When completed and ready to test the burners, turn the tank valve ON, Very, Very Slowly (Slow motion, slow), until the vlave is fully open. Then light the burner farthest from the tank first and set it on HIGH. Light the remaining burners the same way.

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

When pressing igniter switch - hear a pop like gas is going to light but no flame appears. Used the central knob as stated. Also tried manual method using end knob. Nothing happened. Brinkman model...


If you're using a 20 Lb Propane grill tank, here's what you need to do.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF.

2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.

3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion,
slow).

4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and the flame looks normal? If so, light the remaining burners the same way.
Did all the burners light and all the flame heights look normal? If so, you solve the problem.

Always remember to turn the tank valve on very, very slowly. If that did not solve the problem, remove and clean all the burners and each burner's venturi valve. Spiders love to build nest in them.
iIf cleaning the burners and venturi valvesdidn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the Grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

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

Gas grill wont lite manuallly


Do you mean it won't match light or the ignitor won't spark and light the burners? Or both?

If it won't match light or the ignitor sparks, but the burners don't light, that means you're not getting gas to the burners.

Check to the tank valve and make sure it's turned ON. Also, make sure that there's gas in the tank.
If both of those check out as OK, turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and the flame height looks correct? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. Now, are they all lit and the flames heights look correct? If so, you solve the problem. Just remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if the burners failed to light. Remove and clean all the burners, as well as the venturi valve on the open of each burner. Spiders like to build nest in the venturi valves.

if cleaning the burners did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find it in any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories, for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please be kind enough to let me know. Thanks and Happy grilling!!

Uniflame GBC772W grill is having some problems the burners do not seem to put out much gas to have a good flame on high i cleaned out the little burner holes but it seems like we don't get enough...


More than likely, the problem is with your grills LP Gas Regulator. To test this theory, tune the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until the valve is fully open. Now, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights, now look normal? If so, you solved the problem.

If not remove the burners from the grill and clean the properly, as well as the venturi valve (part of the burner, where the burner orifice enters the burner) on each burner. As spiders like to go into them and build a nest. After a thorough cleaning, reinstall the burners and try again.

If that still did not solve the problem, you need to replace the hose/regulator assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Be sure to take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

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

My weber grill (silver) does not get very hot after I open the top to do anything on the grill. What is the problem and how do I fix it? Dave Hendron


First, consider how long you preheat the grill and to what temperature are you preheating? If it's not long enough to reach at least 350 degrees, before you open the hood to start grilling. You're not allowing the grill to preheat long enough.

Second: Have you looked at the flame height on each burner when they're turned to the highest setting? It may be that the burners need to be removed and properly cleaned. In addition, the venturi valve on each burner may be partially clogged with spiders or spider webs. When that happens, the burners do get the right air to gas mixture/ratio and the burners don't fully light and heat up.

If the burner flames remain lower than they should, the grills regulator may be locked up. In which case, turn the tank valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Does the flame height now, appear to be normal? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. The flame height on all should be the same on the highest setting. If they don't you'll need to replace the grills regulator/hose assembly. You can purchase one at just about any home center or hardware store that sells grills and grill accessories. Just take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Any or all of the above should solve your problem. Please let me know and if you have any questions, don't fail to ask.

Grill does not get hot enough. Which seem like low gas flow. One burner does not light


Yes, it is probably low gas flow. I assume you feel comfortable that there's a reasonable amount of gas in the tank.

Here's what you need to do. Turn OFF the LP Tank Valve and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes. While you're waiting lift out the tank. Does it feel as heavy as it should? Or does it feel lighter than it should? If it feels lighter, you're either very low or have run out of gas.

In either case, here's what you need to do when you reinstall that tank or a new one. Attach the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY ( I'm talking slow motion). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner that's farthest from the tank and turn it to the highest setting. Does the burner flame look correct? If it does, light the next burner and turn it to high and continue doing that until all the burners have been lighted. If the first burner flame doesn't look correct after you lit it. Turn the tank OFF and repeat what you did previously. If it still fails to produce the right flame heights, either the venturri valves on each burner are clogged or the regulator is locked up.. You will have to remove the burners to clean them. If that fails to solve your problem, buy a new grill hose and regulator. You can purchase it at either Lowe's or Home Depot or your local hardware store. Just be sure to take yours with you, so that you can get the right length and brass fitting size matches.

I'm sure this will solve your problem. Please be kind enough to let me know.

Happy Grilling

BBQ lights but gas does not travel down burner bar.. The flame only lights at the jet area..


Turn off the LP Gas Tank Valve. Disconnect (unscrew) the grill hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve on very very slowly, until it's fully open. Then try lighting each burner one at a time. If that solves your problem remember to turn the tank valve on very very slowly if you turn it off after each use or after replacing the tank.

If that didn't solve your problem, you'll need to remove the burners and check for any obstructions and clean the burners while you have them out.

Please let me know if that solved the problem.

Can you toast bread in it?


You turn on the grill part, set the temperature dial to high wait a few minutes then place the bread on the grill tray provided.

You will need to position the grill tray near the top of the oven because that is where the elements are.

The grill gets hot so you will need to use tongs or gloves to gain access to the bread

Keep a careful eye on the bread because unlike a Toaster it will not eject the bread when it is done and it will catch fire.

Quicker and cheaper to buy a purpose built toaster and use the other one for doing casseroles etc
