What you have is a classic symptom of a bad regulator. If no gas is going fromt he new tank to the burners, you can bet it is the regulator. No real way to test it once it stops working all together. As it is going bad, the flames on the burners will get smaller as each buner lights.

    I have a similar problem however also have a problem with the igniter not working. Could a poor regulator cause a problem with the igniter or is this a separate problem?

    The reduced gas flow to the burners caused by a bad or failing regulator could make the grill hard to light using the igniter. The first thing to replace is the regulator and see if that fixes both problems. If the igniter still doesn't work there is obviously a problem with the igniter, wiring, or the individual elelctrodes on each burner. If it is an electronic igniter, replace the battery and see if the grill lights. If it is any type of push button or rotary piezo igniter (one click per push or turn) and it is no longer make the click sound it has probably broken and needs to be replaced. If there is a problem with the wiring or the electordes, you will have to remove the front panel of the grill to inspect.

Can a Turbo STS 3 burner grill (720-0057-3b) be convert from natural gas to propane? Barbeque Galore has gone bankrupt and does not offer any assistance at their 1 800 number and I can't find any...


The original BBQ's Galore went bankrupt, but was bought by new owners, who still operate it as BBQ's Galore. However, they did buy any of the older company's parts supply. However, all you need are the burner orifices for each burner (including the rear burner) and a Hose/Regulator Assembly to connect the grill to the grill tank. Follow the conversion instructions in the Owner's Manual (see link below) and you should be able to do it.

http://www.grill-repair.com/images/grill/turbosts.pdf

I suspect if you call BBQ's Customer Support 800-752-3085. They can provide the orifices, as they are universal in fit. The Hose/Regulator Assembly can be purchased from any hardware store or home improvement center that sells grills and accessories, for about $30.00.

Once converted, you will see marked improvement in the heating capacity of Propane Gas, as opposed to Natural Gas. The grill will preheat faster and maintain higher temperatures longer.

I hope this helped you, Bradley and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Grilling!!

I assume you have already check with BBQ's Galore ( 800-752-3085 ), as they usually stock conversion kits, if that particular model is approved for conversion. Also, you will need 4 new Natural Gas Burner Orifices. The Propane ones will not work satisfactorily, if at all.

Hope this helped and Happy Grilling!!

The flow gas coming from the burner is very slow. only heats up to less than 200 degrees. even the side burner is the same. i've cleaned it and changed tank. what is my next step?


It could be a defective LP gas regulator or a restriction somewhere in the gas line for the bbq. This can also happen if the propane tank is overfilled.

First make sure that the LP tank is not overfilled. If you open the bleeder hole on the tank(small screw next to the valve) there should be no liquids coming out. If liquid propane is coming out then the tank is overfilled. Keep the bleeder screw loose until the liquid disappears then tighten. Re-connect the tank and see if that fixes the problem.

Then inspect all the gas lines on the bbq. Make sure that there are no kinks or crushed lines.

Then take a look at the gas regulator. Try turning on all the burners then give the regulator a couple good taps on the housing with something solid. See if the burner changes size. If it does and then goes back down it could be the gas regulator. Also take a look at the regulator housing. There should be a very small hole on the housing and it might be labled "vent". Make sure that this little hole is not plugged with any debris or that can cause a low pressure problem. You can use a sewing needle to gently poke out the hole. You will know if it worked because the burners will become much higher. And you could also try disconnecting the hose and regulator assembly from the bbq then turn on the LP tank slowly with the regulator connected. You should get plenty of gas flow from the end of the hose. Then use your hand to block and release the flow a couple times to try and clear any debris that might stuck in the regulator.BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS!!! MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLEAR OF ANY SOURCES OF IGNITION BEFORE TRYING TO CLEAR THE REGULATOR. Then reconnect the hose regulator and tank to see if the problem is fixed. If you are getting very low flow from the hose with the regulator disconnected then it is probably a defective regulator. They are pretty standard and you can purchase a new LP hose and regulator assembly from most home improvement stores.

If the regulator checks out good then I would think that there is a restriction in the main gas line for the bbq after the regulator. You will need you dis-assemble the main line and blow it out with some compressed air to clear the restriction.

My Jenn air BBQ grill will not heat up all of


Couple things could be happening here. If you do exchanges, have you used more than one different propane tank since you've had this issue? This eliminates the possibility of a low tank pressure and a faulty tank connection. Next you need to look over the burners and the propane flow tubing. Spiders LOVE the sweet smell of propane and make their webbing inside the piping that get's the propane up to the burners. At your flow valves/On/Off knobs you'll notice that the propane shoots from the valves into a pipe with an air gap to gain oxygen. Look in there to see if there's any webs. Also should be a gap were that piping meets the burners, so you need to look there too. Depending on the age of the grill, you need to look the burners over. Corrosion & rust can cause the flame/propane holes in the burners themselves to cake up and close up causing much less flaming/heating opportunity. Also depending how much you've used it, it could be grease/dripping/sauce caked up over them too so they may need to be detailed/cleaned. It's not a pretty job, but grill maintenance that should be done every spring. When the burners get caked is when it's really fun and you need to remove them and clean out the holes with toothpicks. Jenn Air makes quality products, but being a BBQ and outdoors, it's just as vulnerable as any other to elemental and use issues. One last thing to check, some regulators (the disk shaped part right where the hose attaches to the tank) have another air mixture intake there with a screen on one side. Make sure there's no water in it and the opening is face down if you have one like that. Otherwise it's restricting the flow of the propane. I haven't seen one of these in a while, but they're still out there so check it too.

No gas getting to bbq


I switched to the new style 20# tank with the new turn-on knob.  I couldn't get enough gas pressure to the BBQ burners for all three burners to light or to keep a strong flame on even one burner.  The new style tanks have a safety valve on the inside of the tank that shuts the gas off if you turn the knob on too fast because the safety valve thinks there is leak.  Shut everything off and then try turning the knob on real slow, especially at first, before turning it all the way on.  If that doesn't work (it didn't for me), then replace the large plastic connection valve knob (female end) that attaches the regulator to the tank.  Mine was for the old style tank and was black (low pressure).  I went to a propane company and had them replace it with a green knob (higher pressure).  Took it home and WALA!  Everything works fine now.  But it was very frustrating trying to figure why I couldn't get any gas to the burners after buying a brand new tank.  I hope this helps solve your problems.
