Question about Grilling

1 Answer

I have a jenn air 3 burner grill purchased 4 years ago new (from either lowes or home depot). I use propane tank for fuel (which is 1/2 to 3/4 full at the moment). The issue I am having, is when I turn on any two of my burners and go to light the third; both of the previously lit burners flame way down (burners are still on high!!) and sometimes one will flame out, or they both flame way down and the third burner will not light. When the third burner is turned off, the other two do not come back onto high, they stay at a very low flame. HELP!!!

Grill will not light, I tried lighting it with manuel lighter, it lights and it will not stay lighted.


If you grill is fueled by and LP grill tank, the tank may be near empty and doesn't have enough fuel to maintain combustion. However, if it lights, but the flames are low, it may be a case of the OPD tank valve on the propane tank has locked up your regulator. In which case, turn the tank OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose. Now, turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is completely open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. If the flame appears to now be normal, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. If all burners have returned to normal height, you solved the problem. Always remember to turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

If none of the above solved your problem, you may need to replace the regulator/hose assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

I have a Jenn air model 730-0163 natural gas grille I need to convert to propane. can this be done and what parts and where do you purchase the?


As I told a questioner, yesterday. Yes, I believe a kit is available. If you purchased this Jenn Air grill from Lowe's, it was manufactured by Nexgrill Industries. Not Jenn Air. In any event, Lowe's no longer sells the Jenn-Air line of grills. My very best advice is to contact Nexgrill Customer Service @ 800-913-8999. In addition to the burner orifice parts you'll have to have, you will also need a grill tank Hose/Regulator Assembly.

Hope this helps and Happy Grilling!

MY propane grill will not come up to the 500 plus degrees for grilling.


There are four possible ways this problem could occur.
1. The unit is old and the burner tubes are plugged, either with rust or spider eggs [yes, they like it their in the winter]. Parts are available at Home Depot and Lowes.
2. The unit is designed for either Natural Gas, and you are using Propane. Conversion can be done.
3. Your gas flow is not forceful enough from the Propane tank. Could be an old tank or a bad regulator. Replace bad parts.
4. Your unit isn't getting enough oxygen because there is too much ash and grease under the grill blocking the airflow. Clean the grill.

Propane will not come thru burners


Most propane problems are due to a new valve on the top of the tank. It is designed to only allow a minimal flow until the line is pressured. This prevents fire flair up from broken or leaking hoses. Always turn the bottle on and wait before trying to light a burner. If the burner is on first, the propane will never come out at full flow or if you have a leak in the system, it won't pressurize sufficiently to allow full flow out of the bottle. There is never "air" in the tank.
