Question about Jenn-Air JLG7130A
I have had this grill for 5 years and from time to time it seemed as though the connection to the tank was poor because the first burner would light, but the next two burners would steal the gas from the first. This means that when all burners are on high, they only produce low flames. Sometimes too low to keep lit. It has happened on and off for a while, but recently, it has become a permanent condition. i have checked the connection to the tank a hundred times and changed out the tank for new ones, and the problem remains. Any suggestions?

We had a similar problem. It turns out that there is some sort of fuel distribution rod that fits into the gas jets in the front of the grill (remove the drip pan). It appears that the gaskets between the gas jets and the rod have burned/disintegrated. We ordered a new rod from Nextgrill but it came w/o gaskets. So now we're having to call again to see if the gaskets are a separate item or if (for some reason) they are part of the jets?? Anyway, good luck.

Probably 1 of 3 things:
Check your LP tank valve at an LP filling station. Make sure both valve and tank are in working order.
Next check for webs or cocoons up around where knob valves go into burners. You may have to remove burners to see into back of valves. Then swab orifice holes with a torch tip cleaner.
Third, a Menards , LP outfitter/station, or grill shop should have a universal replacement rubber gas line and "regulator"(possibly plugged or stuck shut). Sometimes you end up with cheap/bad regulator out of the factory.
Good luck and hope one these helps or does the trick.

I just finished cleaning our starter on our jenn air. Over time, corrosion, rust and battery acid builds up on both the coils on the lid (positive side) as well as in the battery chamber and negative tip inside the chamber. I used sand paper and sanded the coils in the cap and the chamber. The coils need direct connection to the battery to create the charge. There are no instructions on this that I was able to find. I figured it out after about 3 hours of fussing with it. It worked immediately once I placed the battery back in. You may also need to clean the electrode tips near the burner. I used a q-tip. Hope this helps.

Couple things could be happening here. If you do exchanges, have you used more than one different propane tank since you've had this issue? This eliminates the possibility of a low tank pressure and a faulty tank connection. Next you need to look over the burners and the propane flow tubing. Spiders LOVE the sweet smell of propane and make their webbing inside the piping that get's the propane up to the burners. At your flow valves/On/Off knobs you'll notice that the propane shoots from the valves into a pipe with an air gap to gain oxygen. Look in there to see if there's any webs. Also should be a gap were that piping meets the burners, so you need to look there too. Depending on the age of the grill, you need to look the burners over. Corrosion & rust can cause the flame/propane holes in the burners themselves to cake up and close up causing much less flaming/heating opportunity. Also depending how much you've used it, it could be grease/dripping/sauce caked up over them too so they may need to be detailed/cleaned. It's not a pretty job, but grill maintenance that should be done every spring. When the burners get caked is when it's really fun and you need to remove them and clean out the holes with toothpicks. Jenn Air makes quality products, but being a BBQ and outdoors, it's just as vulnerable as any other to elemental and use issues. One last thing to check, some regulators (the disk shaped part right where the hose attaches to the tank) have another air mixture intake there with a screen on one side. Make sure there's no water in it and the opening is face down if you have one like that. Otherwise it's restricting the flow of the propane. I haven't seen one of these in a while, but they're still out there so check it too.

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).
