Question about Uniflame 200209 Open Flame Patio Heater

1 Answer

Lack of heat

Hi. I have a Uniflame "Richmond" model grill bought at Walmart.There are no briquettes with this model. My problem is that, even with a full tank of propane, I cannot get "real" heat from the unit. I feel that the cover above the flame inhibits the true grilling experience. It is very frustrating. Any ideas please send to me by email at jrj2@shaw.ca
Thank you.

The plates protect the burners and help disperse the flame more evenly across the grill surface. Make sure the tank is completely open (knob on top of tank) and that when the burner is turned up to high, the flames out of the burners are about 1 1/2 to 2" long, mostly blue in color. If they are smaller, and the tank is open all the way, the regulator hose may be defective.

Char glo indoor gas grill


leave at least 1/4 inch between briquettes. sometimes clients will pile-up briquettes hoping to make the grill hotter or more efficient but the briquettes can become an impediment to heat circulation which will cause heat to spread low. this usually damages the module and control valves. A single layer with small space between each briq is sufficient.

My husband and I inherited a Charbroil gas grill (model # 4639171) from his mother. There is no flame diffuser, heat plate, or lava rocks over the burners. It is difficult to cook on because anything...


I searched my parts catalog for your model number and came up empty. I believe that I may have parts that will work for you. The closet model number to what you have listed is #4639122. This model takes the angle shaped flame tamers. This model also lists a briquette grate. You can go to my website, www.minxenterprisesinc.com and check out this model number and it will give you dimensions for the parts. You can see if they will fit. I would not get lava rock, purchase either ceramic or porcelian briquettes, as they work much better.

Do I need briquettes for my weber silver grill


No, you don't use briquettes with a charcoal grill. Charcoal is slow to heat up any way, adding lava rock (briquettes) would make it even slower and hard to keep lit. However, its OK to add cooking wood chunks after the charcoal has heated up, to add a smokey flavor.

Happy Grilling!!

Using ceramic briquettes with lp gas grill


Many people enjoy using Lp/gas grills for their ease of use and efficiency. Frustrations caused by flare ups and hot spots encourage the use of a wide variety of briquettes and other products. Ceramic briquettes are most commonly used because they provide an even heating surface and last for several uses.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

  2. Gas grills most often use ceramic briquettes, lava rocks or, more recently, ceramic tiles in order to distribute heat. Ceramic briquettes come in the traditional shape, lava rocks are similar to those used in landscaping, and tiles only differ from briquettes by shape. Traditional charcoal briquettes can be used, though they maintain several disadvantages. Use
  3. Place briquettes, tiles, or lava rocks in a solid layer on a screen between the heating element and the grill surface, making sure to leave space for air to circulate. Light the grill and check to make sure that all areas of the heating element are covered, filling any empty spaces. Advantages
  4. Ceramic briquettes, tiles and lava rocks all serve the same purpose. The advantage comes from their ability to reduce flare-ups and hot spots. They can also be used several times, minimizing set-up and making cleaning easier. Traditional charcoal briquettes are cheap and easy to find. They also provide the smoky flavor associated with traditional charcoal barbecuing. Disadvantages
  5. Ceramic briquettes, tiles, and lava rocks are not as easy to find as traditional charcoal briquettes and are more expensive. Traditional charcoal briquettes do not repel run-off from food, but rather retain it, causing hot spots and flare ups. Charcoal briquettes also need to be replaced after each use and are harder to clean up. Warnings
  6. Any additional product placed inside a lp/gas grill should not come in contact with the heating element. Doing so can cause increased stress to the grill, as well as clog vital gas ports. Always maintain a clean grill. A buildup of old briquettes can cause inadequate performance.

Uniflame gbc820w propane to natural gas adapter question


Most major hardware stores that sell grills have a universal conversion quick connect hose and gas line adapter fitting.  That.. you can probably handle.   Next you need to install a quick connect adapter from the house gas line or meter (unless one is already there for you).  Otherwise you may want to call your local gas company or fireplace/grill store to send someone out.    Last all LP to NG conversions require the orifices on the back of your grill's valves to be changed to larger holes.  (LP has more pressure thus small holes and NG must be larger.)  The trick is getting the precise numbered drill bit diameter(45-55) for your particular grill.  You can look on your manufacturers web site to provide this info.  Often times they can sell you a new set of orifices, predrilled, to the exact diameter for conversion.  Drilling out orifices is usually cheaper and pretty easy if you know where to find the bits (internet or specialty tool store).   Sometimes your local gas company or fireplace/grill shop will provide this service as well. Hope this helps, and good luck.
