How are you turning the grill on and off? It sounds like a vapor-lock. Try this: first unhook the regulator and crack the valve on the tank open...if you hear and smell gas coming out, good, close the valve and re-connect the regulator then open the gas valve then turn the burner on and light it...then shut it off by closing the tank valve first and let the burners go out then turn off your burner valves...try that and let me know what happens.

We have a Big Easy oil-less turkey frier & it won't stay lit. It's 37 degrees out. Would that be an issue? When valves are open, can't hear gas coming through. We've only used the propane tank one...


Yes, the outdoor temperature and any wind could play a role in it. Check to be sure that there's enough gas in the tank, to sustain the burner flames. These cookers use a lot of gas. Also, check the air intake shutter valve (where the tank hose connects to the burner). It may need adjusting to get the proper mixture of gas to air ratio. Consult your Owners Manual for the proper setting.

Hope that helps. Please let me know.

Grill will not stay lit if using 4 th burner will only work on 3 burners and gas is low


Check that the fourth burner tube is set properly into the unit. Then turn all burners off, turn off the natural gas supply or remove the LP tank. turn all the burners on (don't try to light) wait a couple seconds turn all burners off. reconnect gas source. turn on gas, open burners fully and try to light.

Poor gas flow. Burners will not stay lit. Gas


Try taking a large hammer or set of vice grips and banging pretty heftily on the tubes feeding the burners. These are usually build ups of Carbon. If not, then make sure your connections are good (sort of move them around to see if they are loose), and make sure your propane is not getting too close to empty (you can shake it around and feel/hear the propane).

Grill wont stay lit


These new tanks have a safety device installed in them . If you open the valve quickly or tip the jug the damn thang won't work. Take the tank loose, open all the grill valves and close all valves. Reconnect the tank and SLOWLY open the valve a hair. Light the burners. No need to open the valve all the way. if you do the dumb safety will plug the jug.

Gas grill lights but doesn't get very hot


I had this same problem especially when the tank on my 5 burner 2 year-old Kenmore was about half full. The solution above fixed it. I was used to opening the gas fully, turning one burner to high and clicking the button. If I would have read the front of the grill I would have seen that this was incorrect. I turned off the grill completely, unhooked the regulator and reconnected it. With one burner on high I began clicking the button BEFORE I turned on the gas. I slowly turned the gas on one quarter turn and it lit up full flame. I slowly turned the gas another quarter turn and lit the second burner. I slowly opened the gas all the way and lit the third and so on. That did the trick!
