Question about Broilmaster Premium P3 Grill

1 Answer

Burner goes out

The P3 has 2 burners. The right one goes on fine with the starter and stays lit as long as I don't try to turn the left one on. About as soon as I turn the left side on they both go to simmer and than sputter out. You can hear the propane gas flow slow or stop when the left side is turned on. I've cleaned the venturi tubes and burners. Same problem after cleaning as before. What could be causing this? Interestingly enough when the tank is full the problem goes away. It's only when the tank is maybe 1/2 to 3/4 full that the problem starts happening.

Could it be I need a new regulator?

SOURCE: low gas flow into burners despite full propane

The regulator has a hole in it. For gods sake be careful when you are playing around with it, because LPG is heavier than air, we had a leak in our cellar and the fire brigade actually carried it out in buckets! NO joke.They just sprayed a mist of dye over the gas and you could actually see it going down. The gas provider may have come and empty your gas bunker if you have one, or open it and let it dissipate in the open air. Even if you only have a cill on the step of 3", sweep it out like its water. Then change the regulator. Be careful, use pleanty of ptfe tape on the ouutlet side of the regulator to eliminate the risk of further leaks.

Bypass valve need reset. All grills made after 1996 have this valve.

  • Close the LP tank valve
  • Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
  • Open the grill lid
  • Turn the LP tank valve until it is completely open
  • Wait 90 seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.
  • Turn remaining burners to High
  • Close the lid.
  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes
I called Weber and a rep walk me through it.

Make sure you are using an adjustible high pressure regulator. Make sure there are no obstructions insde the burner tube or burner holes.

If you didn't change the burner orifices to Natural Gas orifices, that's the problem. Even after those are changed (assuming you didn't) the grill will take a bit longer to preheat. As Propane burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas, in an outdoor environment.

Hope this helped answer and solve the problem for you.

I have no electric power (i.e., clock, oven don't work) but the gas works fine.


Older stoves didn't have electric start so pilot stays lit on burners when power goes therefore burner will still light. Oven won't work since it probably needs electric power or has electric starter.

May have a dirty flame rod. Look in the burner box at either the far right or far left for a probe that sticks in the flame of a burner. There will be only one wire going to it. This rod is a safety sensor that shuts off the gas if it does not sense flame within a few seconds. If you brush off the rod with a toothbrush or Scotch Brite pad it may take care of your problem. If not, make sure the flame travels from burner to burner quickly. The burner tray may need to be brushed off.

Pilots lites , holds ok for minutes,but once move


Hello KJGreen, It sounds, based on your description, as though the thermocouple is faulty and should be replaced. If the pilot light stays lit and you've left it on for several minutes before turning the knob on to light the log set, then that indicates that the thermocouple is bad.

The thermocouple is a safety device (heat sensor) designed to stop the flow of gas to the burner in the event the gas flame goes out and the pilot goes out. The sensor will only allow the gas valve to open once it has reached the preset temperature.

To confirm that the thermocouple is defective, I would light the pilot light and allow it to remain lit for up to 10 minutes before I attempted to turn on the log burner. If, after 10 minutes, the log burner still won't stay lit, then you know that the thermocouple needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the burner should light, since after 10 minutes, the sensor should be hot enough to signal the gas valve to open.

If you are going to have this replaced, please make sure you use only an approved supplier, since an incorrect replacement part could cause an unwelcome malfunction of the gas log burner. Safety should be primary when dealing with open flame burners.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The burner will only stay lit for a few minutes


Hello. Begin by using a small brush to clean everything in that area. Then light the pilot and light the burner. If it still acts up, change the thermocouple. Regards, joe

Whirlpool electric range burner power light stays on but no heat


Hello givemeanidth.
Welcome to Fixya

You said, have a Whirlpool electric range (model rf363pxpt0) with standalone burners - the burner power indicator light stays lit whether the heat control knob is on or off, there is no heat coming from the burner on or off. You pulled the burner from the receptacle and one of the tabs broke off and stayed in the receptacle. You removed the tab and made sure no pieces remained in the receptacle then bought a replacement burner, no change. You put the replacement burner in the back burner of the same size and had heat within 10 seconds. You changed out the burner with the one that had been in the back of the range, no heat. As long as the breaker to the range is on the power light stays lit but no power to that one burner only.

What is the model number and the age of your range?

Waiting for your reply.

Nexgrill patio heater won't stay lit


I called Nexgrill technical support at 1-800-913-8999. They are sending me a new thermo couple to keep the valve open when ignited - so the patio heater will stay on. I needed to give them the serial number (inside the propane tank door) and fax them a copy of the receipt.

Hope this helps.
