Question about Grilling

1 Answer

We have a 10 year old Thermos BBQ model number 158207. On one of the burners the heat can't be regulated. It's either full on or completely off. Additionally we can't find that model BBQ or the parts in the replacement book on the web, and the 800 number on the front of the book is disconnected. Can you help us determine what is causing the problem? Please help. Angelo

Grill heats up slowly and never gets to top heat.


Hi Nancy and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

After a BBQ has sat for a while there are things that need to be checked.

1. Remove the burner(s) and check for anything in the gas path area. Use a BBQ stick if necessary to remove any cobwebs.

2. While the burner(s) is/are removed check the burner orifices for any build up and wipe it clean with a dry cloth.

3. There is a possibility after 7 years that the regulator has started the corrosion process and the diaphram is sticking not allowing full pressure to the gas control valves. If you suspect an LPG reguator problem just replace it. After 7 years it is time anyway.

That should get your temps back to normal again. If not then you may have to disassemble the gas valves and clean them. Carb cleaner or engine degreaser works great on the greese build up. Engine degreaser however will discolor things if you do not rinse it off quite well right away. Same thing goes for oven cleaner.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Thermos gas BBQ Model # 461410708. It seems everytime I try to light it there's not enough gas going through the burners to stay lit. I'm after turning off the tank and removing the regulator and...


You probably need a new regulator. It sounds like it is sticking, so take your old one with you to a store that sells BBQ's and get a new one.

A burner knob somehow melted off and now when I try to light the grill it barely keeps a low flame. Is it a regulator problem? I have a Thermos gas grill with three burners-about 3 years old.


You may have a blockage in the tubes connected to your gas valve. It could be a spider web.
The burners may not be connected to the valve properly.
It could be an overfilled propane tank, and the overfill protection kicked in.
It could be a bad regulator.

Converting Weber Genesis Silver B from LP to Natural Gas


Hello...I have the same grill and want to do the same conversion...From my research, you need to drill out the three orifices with a size #53 wire gauge drill bit. ( this resizes each orifice to 12000 BTU's each, which the grill is rated at 36000 BTU's).Then remove the existing hose and regulator. Replace the hose with a Quick disconnect compression fitted hose. The NG supply needs to have a pressure regulator installed, with a shutoff and quick disconnect fitting installed. Connect the hoes from the grill to the supply, and fire it up...THIS IS WHAT I INTEND ON DOING TO MY GRILL,BUT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>
