    grill will not heat up over 299-300 degree's. manuel says to close all valves and reopne the tank valve 1-2 turns, wait 5 seconds and light one burner and it should fix the problem, I did this a few times and it did not work.

    The grill is only a month old. Just changed the tank recently and started this problem

I have a 5007and it sounds like the regulator. I had the same problem with my old sterling. Turn off the tank.. open the valves.. close them again.. and slowly turn open the tank valve.. light one burner and give it a minute or two.. should solve the issue.. also.. I've heard that if the tank is over full it can cause issues, but I cant confirm that.

If the propane tank is full, it could be the pressure regulator. Some regulators have an adjustment screw on the top.
If it's REALLY cold outside, the propane may not be evaporating fast enough to keep the pressure up. Also on a cold or windy day, heat is drawn away from the grill very quickly, and it may be difficult to keep the temperature up inside.

Good luck!
(And Happy Grilling!)

I just bought a brand new kenmore elite grill (for $199). I am new to grilling. The burners seem low - the one on the far left in the back has a flame but all other flame levels are low. Also, I cannot...


If the burners are set to the high setting and the flames are still very low, you may have a bad propane tank. The valves on the tanks go bad sometimes. Take the tank back to where you bought it and tell them you think the valve is bad. They should exchange it for free assuming it still feels full. This has happened to me before, i thought there was something wrong with the grill and it was just a bad tank.

I have a new Vermont castings Signature Series 401 Natural gas grill. Even when the burners are set on high there doesn't seem to be a very big flame on any of the burners and with all the 4 burners on...


You may have a new VC Natural Gas grill, but I'm willing to bet that it has LP Gas Orifices in it, instead of natural gas ones. Sometimes this happens. It gets mismarked as Natural Gas, when in fact it's Propane.

To confirm this, remove a burner, then remove the orifice, It should be stamped for which gas it's for. It will say NAT or LPG or LP

If you find this the problem, contact the VC dealer you purchased it from, for No Charge replacement orifices.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem

Grill does not get hot enough. Which seem like low gas flow. One burner does not light


Yes, it is probably low gas flow. I assume you feel comfortable that there's a reasonable amount of gas in the tank.

Here's what you need to do. Turn OFF the LP Tank Valve and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes. While you're waiting lift out the tank. Does it feel as heavy as it should? Or does it feel lighter than it should? If it feels lighter, you're either very low or have run out of gas.

In either case, here's what you need to do when you reinstall that tank or a new one. Attach the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY ( I'm talking slow motion). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner that's farthest from the tank and turn it to the highest setting. Does the burner flame look correct? If it does, light the next burner and turn it to high and continue doing that until all the burners have been lighted. If the first burner flame doesn't look correct after you lit it. Turn the tank OFF and repeat what you did previously. If it still fails to produce the right flame heights, either the venturri valves on each burner are clogged or the regulator is locked up.. You will have to remove the burners to clean them. If that fails to solve your problem, buy a new grill hose and regulator. You can purchase it at either Lowe's or Home Depot or your local hardware store. Just be sure to take yours with you, so that you can get the right length and brass fitting size matches.

I'm sure this will solve your problem. Please be kind enough to let me know.

Happy Grilling

My 3 burner built in has been a great, very hot, grill over the years. lately however it takes forever to heat up and the flame seems very low. ANY HELP OUT THERE


It could be a couple of things. First you could be low on propane or natural gas depending on what you use. The second thing is that over time the little holes in the burners clog. You can poke them clean with a toothpick. Or if they are rusted you will need new ones which you can find from an appliance parts dealer or manufacturers website.
