Question about Broilmaster Premium P3 Grill
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?
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.

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.

When you attached the side burner assembly to the grill frame, did you pull it forward before tightening the 4 bolts that hold it in place? If not this could account for part of the problem. The other would be how you routed the gas line hose from the 'Y' connector, to the side burner connection. If routed differently than what the assembly instructions indicate, you would come up short on the length.
In any event, your model grill has been discontinued by Brinkmann, but the warranty and some parts are still supported by the manufacturer. I'm assuming you just purchased this grill and are in the process of assembling it according to the Owners Manual. So, if you continue to have a problem contact Brinkmann's Customer Support Hotline 800-527-0717.
Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.
