Question about Tec Patio II Grill

1 Answer

My Tec Patio II grill will not stay lit. The pilot burner works but the tiles just woosh and go out. I use portable gas canisters. I would like to take it apart and clean the gas jets but need a service manual or instruction on how to do so. I can not tell from reading your terms whether there is a charge for seeking this advice. If there is please let me know what the cost is before it is given to me so I may have a choice. Thank you.

    I have had a Patio II grill since 2002. It is the best grill I have had in 30 years of BQing. I agree with gcken, the problem is the ceramic burner plates, they are probably cracked. I have replaced the plates 3 times - they were covered under warranty and shipped promptly from TEC. I did pay postage. Try calling TEC 803-783-0750, they are great people to work with. If you need suggestions for how to replace the plates email me jearle9@yahoo.com

TEC Sterling II, Pilot light not lighting ceramic burners. Got new ignitor. It does create a spark but it doesn't jump to the pilot light or to the burners.


The gas may not be reaching the burners. Try match lighting a burner to see if it is. If it isn't do the following.

To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. If you're using as 1 Lb
Canister tank. Turn the valve off and remove the canister.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Reinsert the canister.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. Or you will have to replace the Canister Assembly. For that you'll have to go to Tec Grills. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

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

How do I connect the wiring to my igniter switch on a patio 2 Tec grill?


Hi, You will need to remove the front face plate. There are 4 phillips head screws holding the face plate on - one in each corner. Remove the screws wth a #2 phillps head screw driver. Once the face plate is removed you will have access to the orange pilot assembly wire. Simple plug the orange wire into the igniter on the face plate. Bolt the face plate back in place.

With your gas supply off - turn your rotary ignter and make sure there is a spark present at the pilot assembly.

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.

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.
