Question about Tec Sterling II Grill

1 Answer

Burner Knobs are extremely hot to the touch

I have actually burned my fingers on the knobs of my grill during cooking because they are catching heat from somewhere. Any advice? Is this safe? It does not happen every time but does at least 70% of the time. I also have the poping noise from my TEC burners. I quite using them so now I have a $700 grille that I can only use half of the cook area.

Sound like your burners are clog, if you have ceramic burners, call TEC and see how old your grill is they might be under warranty, the poping noise is from not enough air get it fix before you use it again

I Have A Jenn-Aie Model 720-0164 Natural Gas Grill. When I Grill, The Control Knobs Get So Hot Theyh Will Burn You. What Could Csuse This?


Can this grill be also used on propane? If so you might be running it too hot on natural gas, check to see if the control knobs have two different set of markings.

My knobs get to hot to touch when turning off


More than likely, the vinturi valve on each burner is clogged and the burners flames are back firing and reaching the control knobs. Stop using the grill, until you disassemble the burners, clean them and the venturi valves, The venturi is an opening on the sides of the burner, where it slides of each burner orifice. Spiders like to build nest in them.

For a more visual look at what I'm talking about, go to the follwing link for Sure Fire Heat. They manufactured the grill for Amana. Go down the list of Amana grills until you find yours or one like it. In the Owners Manual there should be a section on Maintenance, which will show you how to remove the burners and clean them.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

My grill does not heat beyond 300 degrees.


Hello,

Check the excess flow safety device, which is part if the barbeque to cylinder connection, may have activated. To reset the excess flow safety device turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve off.
Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to high. Wait at least 1 minute . Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve slowly. I HAD THIS PROBLEM JUST LAST NIGHT AND FIXED IT RIGHT THEN.

My weber gas grill will not heat up past 300F


Hi John,

I just experienced the same exact problem ! I just bought a brand new Weber E-310 a 3 burner grill.
After I seasoned it up with cooking oil,I turned all the burners to high, opened the tank and clicked electrnic button several times , the grill was on then I went inside, I came out about an half-hour later and it was saying around 275 degrees..
I looked into my manual and there is a gas limit control valve that shuts down gas flow, when it thinks there is too much gas flow.

Sloution;
Turn the propane gas knob to off
Turn the gas grill knobs to Off.
Click the igniter several times to clear out any gas.
Then unscrew the regulator from the tank,( I then blew into the tank hole and regulator),
Screw back on the regulator to the propane tank.
I then clicked igniter again couple of times.
Now open your propane tank.
Then turn on front burner while clicking igniter, this will lite 1st burner.
Then turn 2nd burner on low then to high.
And if you have 3rd burner or more, turn low then to high!

John I did this and my grill went to 600 plus in a few minutes!!

The problem was turning the gas grill knobs on first then opening the tank then lighting...
You have to open propane tank with knobs off, THEN AS SOON AS YOU TURN ON 1ST KNOB, YOU MUST IGNITE ...

Jenn air grill


You should test the wiring to see if there is any short that is causing the overheating.
If one knob only is getting hot, then the knob is probably faulty and need to be replaced.

I the all knobs are overheating because of heat coming from the grill, then is a bad heat insulation problem, better to call the service number listed on the owner manual and discuss the problem with Jenn Air in this case.

Here you find replacement parts for your model, in case you need to replace a knob.

Hot Surface Light stays on


Our success has been to heat the elements to hot for about 5 minutes. Then let cool to reset temp sensor.

Can cause the problem by turning a burner on for a short period of time
