First disconnect tank. Hook back up and open very slowly. These new valves on tanks have a shut down if you open valve to fast, causing tank valve to think it is leaking, it slows down flow of propane. Always open tank valve slow when turning on grill. If this does not solve problem then regulator is going bad and need to be replaced.

Troubleshooting nexgrill charcoal gas grill

less than 100 degrees indicates a safety has engaged, close gas valve, open burner valves.....wait 5 minutes. keep lid open, close burner valves, open gas valve until you hear the regulator click
turn on "ignition burner" and ignite (with switch or at specified port).
After this part is lit open other burners one at a time , waiting until each lights before opening the next.

We couldn't get any gas to the burners the other night so my husband replaced the regulator. We got gas to both burners but only reached a max temp of 250 degrees after 45 mins. What do you thing the...


The regulator that your husband replaced, is partially locked up. This occurred when he opened the gas tank valve to fast. It happens a lot with the new OPD Valve tanks. It may have been the problem with the first regulator.

To solve it: Turn the tank's regulator OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until the valve is fully open. Then light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look normal? If co, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look as they should for being on HIGH? If so, you solved the problem. But, you won't know for sure, until you allow the grill to preheat for at least 15 - 20 minutes.

Always remember to open the tank valve very, very, slowly.

If the above didn't solve the heating problem. Remove and thoroughly clean all the burners, including the ventuuri valve on each burner. Spiders like to build nest in them.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Recently replaced all 5 burner tubes and now when I light the grill it doesn't get hot enough - stays around 250 degrees.


Gerald, when you turned the gas tank valve back On, after replacing the burner, the OPD Valve in the grill tank partially locked up the grills gas regulator. To solve this problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the gas valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes.

2. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion,
slow).

3. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the grill first and turn it to HIGH. Does
the flame height look correct for the highest setting? If so, light the remaining burners the same
way. Now, to all the flame heights look normal for the highest setting. if so, you solved the
problem.

4. Close the hood/lid of the grill and allow it to preheat for at least 15 minutes. The temperature
reading (if your grill thermometer is correct) should between 400 & 450 degrees F, depending on
outside air temperature. Which is hot enough to sear a steak.

If none of the above corrected the problem. You will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly, because the regulator is partially locked up. You can pickup one at any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to troubleshot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Periodicly I won'y be able to get the grill temp to over 200 degrees. sometimes it is ok and can reach as high as 500 degrees other times it will just not generate enough heat to grill.This is a five...


zonfish - if you're tuning the gas tank off at each use, as you should. The problem lies in your grill's gas regulator, but it also is not a big deal and is easily solved.

Whenever, you open the tank valve, do it VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow), until it is fully open. Then light the burners.

What happens is this, LP Gas Grill Tanks are now equipped with an Overfill Protection Device ("OPD"). And often time, when you turn the valve on like you would normally do, the OPD Valve sends a hot load of gas to your grill's regulator and partially locks it up or locks up entirely. Therefore, the burners are not getting enough gas to heat the unit up to 500 degrees. Opening the valve very, very, slowly, overcomes this problem.

I hope this helped you and Happy Grilling.

Won't get hotter than 300 degrees


If you are confident that there is adequate gas in the tank to maintain combustion ... Turn off the tank valve and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY (I'm talking, slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank, first. Turn it to high and light the remaining burners the same way. This should solve your problem. Just remember to always turn the tank on VERY, VERY slowly after it has been turned off.

Also, it's a good idea to test your grill thermometer to see if, in fact it's accurate. Buy a regular oven thermometer and set it on the middle grill grate, near the front of the grill. Preheat your grill with the lid closed and when the grill thermometer reaches 300 degrees, open the hood and look at the temp on the oven thermometer. Are they the same or with in a few degrees of each other? If so, your grill thermometer is accurate. If not, it's faulty.

Personally, I always use an oven thermometer when preheating my grill, because it's more accurate. And only cost about $5.00 @ Walmart.

Hope this helps solve your problem. Please be kind enough to let me know.

Happy Grilling!!!

Gas flow


Your regulater connected on tank has a shut down safety inside of it. disconnect tank hookup, then reconnect, always open tank valve slowely when you open to fast regulator thinks there is a leak and starts shutting down valve to slow leak. Opening slowely will solve your problem.

Grill doesn't reach max. temp when burners are on high


This is normal. Having the gas valve partially opened does not release the volume of gas necessary to bring the temp. on high.

Temp


Not sure on your climate.
But a Holland grill cooks cooler in the coller months and Hotter in the hotter months. This type of grill doesn't reach a very high setting approx: 400 degrees. It might reach higher temperatures in the hotter weather 450-475 degrees.

Also, it has to shut down the same way every time you use your grill.

Here is a Tip to fix a grill that not getting hot:
1. Turn the gas valve knob off. then close LP tank valve knob.
2. Unscrew the plastic hose coupling knob from the LP tank. You may hear a slight "hissing" sound as pressure is released this is normal.
3.Wait a minute then screw the coupling knob back on to LP Tank.
4.With lid open.slowly open LP tank valve.
5.Relight the grill the proper way by turning gas valve knob to ON position while turning the igniter knob at the same time.
6.After you are sure the grill is lit preheat the grill for 30 minutes.

This was called purging the line or releasing the air out of the line.

Another thing your orifice could be clogged with spiders or dirt. If it is LP gas check to make sure your hose is not kinked.

Hollands are known for the slow cooking process and a Healthy way of cooking!
