All gas cookers with glass lids have a safety cut off switch. check around the back of the cooker, it will be positioned in a place where the lid could press it down when it shuts. see if that switch has been pressed in and stuck in ? help the switch out and clean it so it moves freely in and out. hope this helps

Troubleshooting nexgrill charcoal gas grill


did you replace the battery in the igniter?
less than 100 degrees indicates a safety has engaged, close gas valve, open burner valves.....wait 5 minutes. keep lid open, close burner valves, open gas valve until you hear the regulator click
turn on "ignition burner" and ignite (with switch or at specified port).
After this part is lit open other burners one at a time , waiting until each lights before opening the next.

When i start my kenmore outside gas grill i turn on the gas and then the knobs and then push the red button. Then there is this big bang and flames come pouring out. of cause the lid is open. grill also...


This will sound crazy but, when the grill and gas is off have you looked underneath to make sure the gas valves are aligned to the burners? moving a grill around can dislodge the burners then the gas will not eneter the burner or the burn box as designed. think putting a bic pen back in it's cap. this is the relationship of the back of the valve to the burner

If these are aligned....
at the point where the valve meets the burner there is an opening, a venturi if you will. Bugs love these holes. spiders make nests in them, wasps and hornest make nest in them, you name it. if it is blocked with a nest the gas flows backwards and you have fire where you don't want fire. start there. Most Grills are made to easily remove the burners once the grates are off or if you look up from the ground level you can see in there (this is the path air takes to feed air to the burners. last if you have a cabinet you may need to open the doors and look up that way.
Good luck happy grilling and be safe

Does not heat up. When lid is closed with all burners on it only heats to 250*


Either the grill's thermometer is faulty or the grill's regulator is partially locked up. Let's a dress the latter, first.

1. Turn the gas grill tank's valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank & 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. Does
the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the exact same way. Do all the
flame heights look correct? If so, you may have solved the problem. Close the grill's hood and
allow it to preheat for at least 20 minutes. If the temperature goes above 250 degrees F, the
problem is solved.

If the above didn't solve the problem, buy an inexpensive oven thermometer, that would usually set on an oven rack. Except, you're going to place it on the grill's cooking grates. Preheat the grill with the hood closed for 20 minutes, then check the grill thermometer. After which, open the hood and look at the oven thermometer. If they read the same, then you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. If the Oven thermometer reads significantly hotter, then it's a faulty grill thermometer. You can either replace it, or just continue to use the oven thermometer, like I do.

If you need to replace the Hose/regulator Assembly, you can pick one up at any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take the old one with you for comparison purposes.

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

Grill will only heat up to about 400


Generally, there are 2 things that can cause the problem.

1. The grill thermometer is no longer accurate. To test this, purchase an regular Oven Thermometer for about $6.00, that would normally set on the oven shelf. In this case, it's going to set on the grill grates, when you preheat the grill with the lid/hood closed. Allow it to preheat on High for 15 - 20 minutes. Look at the grill thermometer and then compare it to the oven thermometer. I'll bet, the oven thermometer will be significantly higher, if the grill thermometer is faulty.

2. If you recently turned the gas tank's valve OFF and then turned it back ON later. the grill's gas regulator is partially closed. And the burner flames are not as high as they should be. To solve this problem do the following.

A. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
B. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
C. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the vale is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct for being on HIGH. 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. You can pick one up from any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00. Be sure to take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

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

I just replaced and old worn out built in Turbo with a new model. Both are propane versions. After installing the new model works fine but does not generate enough heat. With all four burners on high...


If you are using a 20Lb LP Gas Tank, rather than hard piped to the grill or you're using Natural Ga, here in may lie the problem. If it is Natural Gas, was the grill converted or ordered for Natural Gas? If not, that's why it' not heating well.

If you're using a 20Lb grill tank, do the following:

1. Turn the Propane Tank Valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2.Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

3. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the control knob to HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being on HIGH? If so, light the remaining burners the same way, Do all the flame hieghts look correct? If co, close the lid and allow the grill to preheat for at least 20 minutes. Did the grill thermometer go higher that 200 degrees F. If so, you solved the problem. Always remember to turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If that did not solve the problem, the thermometer may be incorrect/faulty. I had this happen myself, with a new grill. To test it, invest $5.00 in an Oven Thermometer, like you use in a regular oven, It sits on the oven shelf. But, in this case it will sit on the center of the grill's cooking grates.

Light the grill and preheat it for 20 minutes. Loo k at the grill thermometer and then lift the hood and look at the oven thermometer. The oven thermometer may be as much as 200 degrees higher. That's because it's actually reading the temperature at cooking level, not up in the air, where the grill thermometer is.

I never replaced my grill thermometer. I continue to use the inexpensive oven thermometer, because it's giving me the actual temperature, at the level I'm grilling at. And I, do a lot of grilling.

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

My weber grill silver will not get hot over the test heat


Since I was not familiar with the term you used "will not get over the test heat." I took a look at the Owner's Manual for you model grill. The only reference I could find to temperature was in the section about preheating the grill to 550 degrees F. That being the case, I guess that's what you may have been referring too.

To solve this problem do the following, as I believe falme heights on the Highest settings are not what they should be.

First, check the gas line hose from the tank to the grill. Look for kinks or twisting that would restrict the flow of gas to the burners. If you find any, turn the gas tank valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and straighten the hose, before reconnecting it to the tank. Then open the gas valve Very, Very Slowly, until it's fully open.

If you didn't find any kins ot twist, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF, Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
2. Turn on any pair of burners to High for io minute and then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes has elapsed, reconnect the hose to the tank.
4. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until it's fully open.
5. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look
correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look correct?
If so, you solved the problem!
6, Close the grill lid and allow 10 - 15 minutes for the grill to preheat to your desired temperature.

If the above didn't solve the problem. The problem, may in fact be a faulty Thermometer. To test it, invest $5.00 in an Oven Thermometer, like you use in a regular oven, that will sit on the oven rack. But, in this case will sit on the cooking grates.

Set the thermometer on the cooking grates, light all the burners, close the lid an allow the grill to preheat for 10 minutes. Then read the temp on the grill thermometer, open the lid an compare it to the Oven thermometer on the grill grates. I'm willing to bet, the oven thermometer will read higher. That's because, it's right down on the cooking grates and not reading the air temperature, like the grill thermometer is. That's why, I all ways use an oven thermometer on my own grill. It's more accurate.

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

My Kenmore grill suddenly doesn't get hotter than 250F, I checked the burners and they look clean from the inside. What can be the problem?


Have you checked the flame height on the burners, when turned to the highest setting? Do they look normal? If not, it may be, that you're running out of gas or the grill's regulator is not open all the way. In addition, the thermometer may be the culprit, by not showing an accurate reading.

For now, let's assume the regulator is only partially open. Turn the 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 vale is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and tunr to highest seittig. Does the flame height look as it should? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. Do all the flame heights look correct? If so you solved the problem. If not, the tank may be low on fuel or the grill's hose/regulator assembly needs to be replaced. You can find a universal fit one at any home center or hardward store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

To check you thermometer fr accuracy, purchase an inexpensive kitchen oven thermometer (the kind that sits on the oven rack) and place it on one of the grill's cooking grates. Light the burners and turn them to HIGH. Close the lid of the grill and wait until the grill's thermometer tops out. Open the lid and look at the temp on the oven thermometer. Are they the same or with in a few degrees of each other? If so the grill thermometer is correct. If not, and the oven thermometer reads higher, then the grill thermometer needs to be replaced if you like. Personally, I use an oven thermometer all the time. As it's reading the tru temperature at the grilling surface, not the air twmp in the grill when the hood is closed.

Hope all of this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and rate my response to you. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

My baby q is sick


Since 1995 all regulators (the part that attaches to the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a gas leak. This safety device can be inadvertently activated in two ways, putting the grill into what is commonly called “bypass”. The first way for the device to be activated is to leave one or more burner control knobs in the “ON” position when the LP cylinder valve is opened. The second is not to wait long enough to “start” the grill after opening the LP cylinder valve. The safety device in the regulator is activated each time that the LP cylinder valve is opened. The device resets itself when the gas pressure equalizes between the closed burner control valve and the regulator, through the hose. If a burner control knob is turned on before the gas pressure can equalize, the device will remain in “bypass”. The length of time necessary to wait to “start” the grill after turning on the LP cylinder valve is dependent on the length of the hose and outside air temperature. It is always good practice to wait a few seconds after opening the LP cylinder valve before turning on the burner control knob to start the grill.
Keep in mind that the safety device reacts to a gas leak. If a grill is in bypass, the gas connections and hose should be tested for leaks with a soap and water solution.
If the grill is in bypass, after checking for gas leaks do the following to get the grill out of bypass:
To reset the gas safety device:
Open the barbecue lid.
1. Close the LP tank valve.
2. Turn your burner control knob to the OFF position.
3. Wait at least 5 minutes if the barbecue had been lit, then
4. Disconnect the hose from the LP tank.
5. Turn your burner control knob to the HIGH position.
6. Wait at least 2 minutes, and then turn the burner control knob to the OFF position.
7. Re-connect the hose to the LP tank.
Re-lighting the barbecue:
1. Open the barbecue lid.
2. SLOWLY open the LP tank valve all the way and wait 1 minute.
3. With the lid open, turn the burner control knob to the HIGH position.
4. Ignite the grill by pushing the crossover ignition button.
5. Close the barbecue lid.
6. The barbecue should reach 500 to 550 degrees in 10-15 minutes.
When you are done grilling:
1. Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
2. Turn off the LP tank valve last.
* Always follow the re-lighting instructions whenever you use the adapter hose and larger tank.
