Jenn Air 720-0061-LP Gas Grill Rotisserie Problem

Every time I use my rotisserie, after a few minutes the heating element goes out.  It appears that air is getting through the back where the element is and puts the flame out.  I always have to light my grill burners whenever I use the rotisserie in order to cook.  It seems like a design flaw because this happens when there is really no wind outside to speak of.

    I have the same issue. Wind is an issue where I live, but I have had the grill for a couple of years and the rotisserie did work. (I do keep 2 of the 3 burners on low to radiate more heat)

    I have heard there is a part you can purchase to account for wind issues, but since the rotisserie used to work fine, wondering if it is something else

Hi all ,
I just bought a jenn air 720-0336 gas grill from bj's . the rear rotisserie burner would stop working after a few minutes .
hear is the deal , the rear inferred burner gets to HOT . they did not put any insulation between the ceramic blocks and the metal bezel.My fix was to remove the unit , drill out the 8 rivets holding the bezel on , carfully remove the bezel and install a fire proof gasket , i was abile to find the proper stuff at my local coal / wood stove retailer.it comes in a white sheet about 1/8 inch thick .
use steel rivets to reassemble . good luck . this took a week of trial and error to figure out .

I just bought the Brinkman, and I am trying to figure out how to use the Rosterria. Can you help me?


Since a Rotisserie is an optional item for your model grill. I assume you have purchased one that is approved to be used on your model Brinkmann Grill Smoker. If not, I recommend that you Do Not use it. If it was approved, read and follow the directions that came with it regarding installation, setup and preparing to use the rotisserie.

The Rotisserie can only be used when you are not grilling anything else on the grill. Remove the grill grates directly in front of the rear infrared Rotisserie Burner. If you Don't, they will be in the way. In their place, you are going to use an aluminum pan (like a pie pan), as a drip pan for whatever you're cooking on the Rotisserie.Place that on top of the burner's flame tamers. Make sure the rotisserie motor is in place and you have electric power to it. Test the rotisserie spit, by inserting it into the motor's spit holder. If you have a Counter Balance, attach that near handle on the spit shaft just below the handle. If your rotisserie is missing the counter balance, you can not use the rotisserie.

Remove the rotisserie spit and place whatever you're planning to cook on it, following the directions that came with rotisserie kit. Make sure the spit forks are tightly embedded in the meat, whole chicken, etc. If a whole chicken, tie the legs together like a Thanksgiving Turkey around the spit..

Light the Rotisserie Burner and close the hood of the grill. Allow the temperature to reach a minimum of 250 degrees F, before opening the hood and installing the food loaded rotisserie spit.
Be careful, as the interior of the grill will be hot. Install the spit as you did earlier. Make sure it fits into both sides of the grill's hood correctly.

Turn the Rotisserie Motor ON and watch as the food turns. If it turns and then sort of bumps, when the spit turns around, adjust the counter balance to stop this. It should turn smoothly. Once all tha is completed, close the hood and allow the food to cook for whatever time, you would cook it in a kitchen oven. Rotisserie cooking is like smoking food. It's a low (temp) and slow (time) process. But, the flavor rewards are GREAT. Only check the food occasionally. The more you open the hood to peek, the longer it will take to cook. Each time you peek, add 10 minutes to the cooking time.

All of this, was sort of a thumbnail sketch of rotissering food. Search the web for recipes and techniques. You'll be amazed at what's out there.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

I have all new burner element, starter and thermometer,,,because I had a MAJOR fire from deteriorating fire unit Now I used grill to rotisserie a chicken, cleaned everything and when using it to grill...


When you cooked the chicken on the rotisserie, did you remove the cooking grates and place a disposable drip pan on the flame tamers below the chicken? This will prevent the grease from dripping down into the bottom of the grill when you use the rotisserie. The bottom of the unit needs to be kept clean so the grease will run to the drip pan and not get caught in the bottom of the unit. When you are done cooking, if you will close the lid and turn the grill on high for 10 to 15 minutes it will help to burn off any grease build up and prevent fires in the future.

I have a Jenn-Air gas grill model #720-0061-LP it has 3 brass burners and a rotisserie burner on the back wall. the flame from the middle burner is shooting back into the knob causing issues with the...


I have had the same problem before with same exact grill. The burners get clogged and the gas pressure backs up. I have had this actually split a gas valve and the plastic electronic igniters do not have a chance withe the head. Call nexgrill and get all new burners under warranty. This will solve the problem for a while. The latest burners that I received in Aug 2010 are 1/2 inch shorter and may solve this problem. You may want to buy new gas valves since the excess heat in this area may have damaged the valve. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, 2nd set of gas valves and 3rd electronic ignitor. May just recycle grill and get a Weber or go with charcoal.

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.

The rotisserie heating element does not fire up on my barbeques galore grand turbo BBQ. Electric ignite seems to be working, but smell gas no heat


The rotisserie should have a thermocouple near the burner. If you have to hold in the knob, or push a red button to get the gas to flow to the burner, and the electrode sparks and the burner lights, you have to continue to hold the knob or button in until the thermocouple gets hot enough to keep the gas on. If the burner keeps going out, you could have a bad thermocouple.

Grill jenn-air will not heat past 100 degrees


You need to pull the burners out and scrub open the side feedholes on the burner. These ususally clog up over time reducing the heat available for cooking. Also, sometimes the Gas regulator goes bad over time when left outside for a year or two. A bad regulator will put out less gas as it fails closed.

Rotisserie won't stay lit


With our Kenmore, you need to increase the gas flow another 1/4 turn once it's lit.
