SOURCE: Expensive TEC Grill Problem with Blowout After Ignition

HI nabber8391,
I have a TEC Pattio II. I have owned the grill for almost 10 years and TEC grills have a ten year warranty on many of the parts including the burners. The burners on my grill have a ceramic inserts. The pop and loud whooshing noises indicate the ceramic insert or the seal on the burner is "cracked". I have replaced both of the inserts and burners on my grill once about 5 years ago under warranty. I have one burner now that will not stay burning and I contacted TEC today regarding the problem, and I will replace the ceramic insert only under warranty. .

The newest TEC grills like yours have the TEC Radiant Glass Infra-red Cooking System with stainless steel burners with glass surfaces. I assumed this burner system had eliminated the problem of the burners going out with a loud boom.

YOUR ONLY OPTION IS TO CONTACT THE CUSTOMER SERVICE GROUP AT TEC. THE TELEPHONE NUMBER IS 1-800-331-0097. TEC IS LOCATED IN COLUMBIA SC. TEC HAS A USEFUL WEBSITE.

By the way, I paid $1400 for my TEC grill in 1999, but I believe the new TEC grills are better. I know I would not buy any other brand. One other thought, it is imperative that cleaning instructions are followed.

SOURCE: Tec Grill Sterling Model won't stay lit

The dealer is right. The ceramic burner is cracked. It will need to be replaced -- pretty pricey. I have the same problem on my Sterling III. This DOES happen too often. My opinion is that this IS a manufacturing defect. I have called the company about it (they are in South Carolina) and they try to blame the user -- that would be us. Very unfortunate company chooses to act this way. You hear about this problem again and again and again -- it's their problem but sadly, they are making it ours. Remember that when you go grill shopping next time -- I know I won't buy a Sterling grill again. Ever.

When was my TEC II made


From various reviews from folks who own the Patio II, I'm guessing 1998-2000. I have a Patio I that was purchased in 1996. It just died and I purchased a used Patio II so I have been researching this model. Also, found some videos on Youtube from repairing/rebuilding to how to cook on one.

Has Patio II for Grills gone out of business? Need to replace our burner in ours. Any idea of where to get parts other than maybe ebay? Thank you so much


Assuming you are talking about the TEC Patio II grill. it is made by the Thermal Engineering Corporation of Columbia South Carolina http://www.tecinfrared.com/home.php. the burners are sold as complete replacment parts as well as pieces of the burner sold seperately. It has a ceramic insert as part of the infrared burner. You may replace just that portion if that is all that is bad. if this has failed on your grill I would highly suggest spraying the four bolts that hold it in place (visible from the top of the grill with grates removed) with a penetrating oil several times over several days before attempting to remove them. Mine came out just fine and the grill is 12 years old. I love this grill even though there is a built in 12000 dollar grill on my patio.good luck

I have a Patio 1. For the last couple of years,


It sounds like your ceramic elements are cracked and will have to be replaced. This can happen when cold juices drip directly onto the red hot ceramic elements. The cracks can sometimes be hard to see. The latest generation of TEC grills have done away with these ceramic elements.

Ignites, but flashes, will not burn steadily


It sounds like grease has dropped down and clog your burner unit. It should be cleaned and then the flames should be even once again. You would need to use a degreaser to clean the burner unit which is located at the bottom base.

Tec grill problem


Hello,

If mositure gets into the ceramic burners, then yes it is time for new ones. Was your grill also converted over to accept the new gas? Or another thing it could be that spiders are clogging the burner orifice.. If you contact a local dealer on Tec gas grills or someone that can service gas grills. Might be able to help you.
