When I turn on the gas to my grill, not enough gas comes through the inside of the grill to heat the grill. The tank is full, all of the grates are new. It will only heat to around 200 degrees

Hi,
That would be a regulator problem, assuming that the gas tank ain't almost shot...
Get a new regulator and that will get you that burger...

My weber grill silver will not get hot over the test heat


Since I was not familiar with the term you used "will not get over the test heat." I took a look at the Owner's Manual for you model grill. The only reference I could find to temperature was in the section about preheating the grill to 550 degrees F. That being the case, I guess that's what you may have been referring too.

To solve this problem do the following, as I believe falme heights on the Highest settings are not what they should be.

First, check the gas line hose from the tank to the grill. Look for kinks or twisting that would restrict the flow of gas to the burners. If you find any, turn the gas tank valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and straighten the hose, before reconnecting it to the tank. Then open the gas valve Very, Very Slowly, until it's fully open.

If you didn't find any kins ot twist, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF, Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
2. Turn on any pair of burners to High for io minute and then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes has elapsed, reconnect the hose to the tank.
4. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until it's fully open.
5. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look
correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look correct?
If so, you solved the problem!
6, Close the grill lid and allow 10 - 15 minutes for the grill to preheat to your desired temperature.

If the above didn't solve the problem. The problem, may in fact be a faulty Thermometer. To test it, invest $5.00 in an Oven Thermometer, like you use in a regular oven, that will sit on the oven rack. But, in this case will sit on the cooking grates.

Set the thermometer on the cooking grates, light all the burners, close the lid an allow the grill to preheat for 10 minutes. Then read the temp on the grill thermometer, open the lid an compare it to the Oven thermometer on the grill grates. I'm willing to bet, the oven thermometer will read higher. That's because, it's right down on the cooking grates and not reading the air temperature, like the grill thermometer is. That's why, I all ways use an oven thermometer on my own grill. It's more accurate.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling.

Gas not coming out enough; flame not catching on to other burners


Problem: Low flames on grill, tank is full.

Cause: These newer tanks have a device inside that limits the flow of gas to prevent leaking or accidental discharge of gas from the cylinder. The leak detector mechanism inside the tank shuts off the gas whenever the valve is opened rapidly.

Solution:
Close the tank valve and remove the tank. Check the gas line for ANY object that could cause blockage. Open all valves on the grill to eliminate any pressure whatsoever. Close all valves and reattach tank. SLOWLY open the tank not over 2 turns. Check for leaks. I just open my tank a tiny bit but that is just me.

This late model gas grill service manual has more details on page 13.

How do you replace a burner on a ducane gas grill


Hello : Here are two solutions , just look which one of them is the most helpful .

  1. Turn off the gas supply and bleed the lines leading to the grill. Remove the gas tank if possible.
  2. Open the grill and remove the grates. In some cases you will need to
    detach the hoses from under the grill using simple hand tools. Other grills may have simple "float in" style of burner. These styles look as if the tubes from the burner leading to the gas supply lines simply "float" into each other. Look for clamps of holders that may need to be removed.
  3. Remove the damaged burner and remove from grill. Take a moment to inspect the other burners and any other hoses in case you need to replace more than one piece. Place the burner in a plastic bag and take it to the home store so you can get the exact parts you need. This removes all guess work.
  4. Before replacing the burner/burners etc, take a moment to clean any material, grease etc from the bottom of the grill. Replace the burners and hoses as needed. Check the connections before reconnecting the gas supply. Turn the gas on and start to flow of gas to the burners without lighting the grill. Make sure the flow is working. Be sure to turn the gas off, let the fuel dissipate before lighting.
  5. With everything working, fire up the grill and enjoy.

Or try these help here :


  1. Turn off the gas supply valve on the tank. Remove the fuel line from the fuel tank by turning the connection nut counter-clockwise with your hand.
  2. Open the Char-Broil gas grill and remove the main cooking grate. You do not need to remove the upper warming racks to change the burners.
  3. Remove the lava rocks from the grill and pull the rock grate out. Unhook the flame spreader from each end where the spreader attaches to the inside body of the grill. The spreader is the angled piece that sits over the burner.
  4. Locate the cotter pin that secures the front of the burner to the grill body. Remove the cotter pin with a pair of needle nose pliers. Lift the burner up and pull the burner venturi tubes out of the gas valve.
  5. Set the new burner inside the grill with the venturi tubes inside the gas valve opening. Install the cotter pin to secure the burner to the grill body. Place the flame spreader back inside the grill and hook the ends to the grill body.
  6. Place the rock grate, lava rocks and cooking grate back inside the grill. Reattach the fuel line to the fuel tank.
Here you need Needle nose pliers.

Please report me which one helped the most .

good luck .

My weber gas grill suddenly does not heat up enough. It has been working for two years and suddenly the amount of flame is tooooooo small to cook.


Hello. You may not have enough propane left in the tank for it to work properly, you may not have turned the tank valve to the full open position, or your valve safety device may have kicked in. IF this last item is what happened read on:
To reset the check valve and get back to cooking on your gas barbecue grill, first
  • turn everything off. Turn off the grill, the rotisserie, the side burner and the LP gas cylinder tank.
  • Once everything is turned off disconnect the propane tank from the gas grill regulator by unscrewing it or pulling the quick-release on older or retro-fitted propane cylinders.
  • Now turn the grill on. I know, it is dis-connected from the gas tank but we want to ensure that the pressure in the gas lines or any gas in the burners is released.
  • Leave the grill, side burner, rotisserie, etc on high for a few minutes with the hood open before turning all the valves back to the off position.
  • Make sure. Most gas barbeque grill valves must be pushed in to turn them and if turning is attempted without pushing the knob, they will not turn to the “on” position.
  • With the grill, et al turned off reconnect the propane tank and slowly turn the hand wheel to the open position.
  • Slowly. The trick here is to turn the hand wheel slowly.
When the propane gas tank is new or newly-filled, the gas is full and the OPD is pushing slightly on the top filled area and the gas will want to burst through the valve. Slow it down by turning the valve on slowly and the check valve will reset itself.

Grill with a full tank of gas will not get hot


Low flame, low temperature, yellow flame: This has become the biggest problem with many grills these days and it's almost always because of the regulator (the funny UFO shaped thing on the gas hose). Regulators seem to be stickier these days and when they stick you don't get enough gas to generate a good grilling temperature. To get your regulator unstuck you need to release the pressure on it. Follow these steps exactly:
  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally
To keep the regulator from sticking again make sure that you turn off the control valves first, then turn off the tank valve. Always open your tank valve slowly. If this doesn't work give it a second try. If you still have low flame then you probably have a faulty regulator that will need to be replaced.

KENMORE Gas Grill 141-152210 Kenmore 437 sq. in cooking will only heat to 250 degrees


sudsy, this exact same thing would happen to me every time I changed a tank. I know it's nothing to do with the grill itself. I would have to seat and reseat the regulator hose to the tank a couple of times before it would start heating normally. Your model has 3 burners and I suspect that the flame is real low on each one even on the high setting. Try connecting and disconnecting the tank a couple of times and see if it comes to life. If worse comes to worse you can order a new regulator hose. Part number P3632L. Catriver..post back.
