Won't heat up fast enough

I have this grill and it is taking forever to heat up. I was wondering if ther are any grill technicians that come to house to fix grill. I will let it heat up for 15-20 minutes and it will take about an hour to cook anything like thawed chicken or hamburgers. Or do you have any troubleshooting hat I could do?

SOURCE: why does it take over an hour to cook a hamburger?

Check to see if your grill has a regulator on it, if so, try replacing the regulator.

Master forge l3218 Low Heat Issue

Had the same issue with the three burner model, the grill wouldnt heat as quickly as it should. Thought it was an issue with the regulator but decided to work our way from the burners to the tank to eliminate possible causes. we got to the valves were you select the heatnig level and discovered that sugar ants had gotten into there somehow and died, enough of them to block the valve without completely closing it. to solve we removed the valves, disassembled them and ran a pipe cleaner through them to clean any buildup away. after doing this for ll three and reassembling the parts and putting them back onto the grill it works perfectly and heats up like it was brand new.

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.

I am helping a friend who has a weber propane grill. The unit seems to ignite but the flame is not strong enough to heat up the grill even after hours of the unit being lit. Help!

The new style tanks have a safety feature inside them that won't allow the gas to come out if the pressure drops too fast. Thank you Ralph Nader. Remove the tank from the grill. Open up all the controls and close them all back tight. Re install the tank onto the grill and SLOWLY open the tank just a hair. Then retry. More HERE

My Char broil grill doesn't heat up enough, the flame is not as high as it used to be. Any ideas? thank you

try opening the tank really slowly. if you open it too fast the overfill protection devise inside the tank will restrict the gas flow. hope this helps.

It sounds like the space is too large for the BTU capacity output of the unit.

Did the unit ever heat the space?

Have you measured the temperature of the incoming air, vs the discharged air?

And finally, based on the Model number in the heading of this thread, this unit is cooling only, no heating (it's not a heat pump).

My durango does not heat up fast enough

Ok then the problem is the air temp control blend door actuator inside the dash. This is a very common complaint on all models since they went to an electric motor operated blend door from the old vacuum motor design.

Flame not hot

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!)
