Re: uneven heat and sound rushing gas
Although not considered normal, a possible cause for uneven heat is a blockage in the burner venturi tubes. It is possible for small insects to get inside the venturi tubes of the burner. Any blockage inside of the venturi tubes could cause uneven heat.The burners needs to be cleaned and then checked.Your burner port holes may be blocked, thus not allowing and even flame across your burner. To correct this, simply clear the debris out by poking blocked holes with a paper clip (or another tool small enough).Check out.Thanks.

This uneven heating is something "grillers" have dealt with since we started cooking...the heat is higher directly over the source and gets progressively cooler as you move away.. This is more pronounced with gas or electric grill/cookers..because the heat source is in a fixed position...WITH charcoal, you can spread the coals out (if you use enough).. and get even heat over a larger area.... I have a NEW 4 burner(w/hot pad) Charbroil gas grill and a old Charbroil charcoal grill...I HAVE NEVER used the gas grill...and I grill 1-2 times a week!! ..(it was a gift/two years ago.... wanna buy it?)
did you replace the battery in the igniter?
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.
No, it will cause uneven heating, flare ups and there is no rack to place the lava rock on. For safeties sake, never try to alter a gas grill to make it what you want it to be. If it didn't come that way from the factory, don't do it.
Hope this helped answer your question. Thnaks for choosing FixYa and Happy Grilling.
What they are hearing is the regulator. There is a diaphragm in the regulator that is vibrating due to the rush of gas flowing through it. This is easily corrected. First, the next time you light the grill, turn the tank valve only one quarter to one half of a turn and light the grill, once the grill is lit, if you have trouble bringing the grill to the temperature you want, you can open the tank valve more and the noise shouldn't start. The reason the noise won't start then is because by that time, the regulator's diaphragm is at the temperature of the gas flowing through it and, subsequently, will not vibrate. If the noise starts again, you can go to just about any home improvement store and get a replacement regulator.
You have the bottle valve opened all the way, the gas is rushing through the regulator making the diaphragm vibrate which is the humming noise you are hearing. With the gas flowing like that, you are basically preventing the ability to control temperature so the grill gets way hot. The best thing to do is to open the valve one full turn only and then light the grill...if you can't get it hot enough after that, then open the valve another full turn...you should never have to open that valve all the way...if you start having to do that then the bottle is almost empty and needs to refilled.
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.
Prior to attching the hose from the regulator to the tank, I turned on all five burners, opened the gas to the tank, allowed the gas to run a few minutes to equalize, be careful when turning on as the gas has built up. I have had no problems since.
I belive part of the problem is that my grill has an automatic ignitor, that can be problematic after changing to a new tank. Thats why I had the burners on (open) prior to attaching the new tank prior then opening the valve on the tank so it doesn't ignite.
