    Have natural gas grill, when front burner ignites and you attempt to ignite either the side burner or another burner, all flames go out. Only enough gas supply to ignite one burner at a time. Changed line supply valve to large orifice and no change. Appears to have to little supply of gas from in line. even with only front burner on flame is very low.

Try resetting the FLD (Flow Limiting Device) on the gas tank. Found this in trying to solve a similar problem with a friends grill. http://www.edyoungs.com/edyoungs/troubleshoot_tank.htm

Check your instruction manual, you have probably set off the safety valve in your propane tank. It is set to trigger if there is an open connection, such as turning on the jets when the tank is turned off. You may have to re-connect the tank...careful of course, make sure it's valve is off.

Grill burner will not burn like the other


Dynasty burners are replaceable and they are very good appliances (when they're actual dynasty, manufactured by jade).
About 90% of the time someone complains about burner flames or heat it is the check valve needing to be reset. I explained this earlier but let me know if you need to know how to do this.
On the rare occasion the check valve is not the problem (and 90% could actually be very low because this is almost always the problem!) the burner could need to be cleaned or replaced or the gas orifice and valve could need to be cleaned or replaced.
Dynasty burners are very heavy cast iron, single venturi "H" burners. Although coated cast iron is quick to oxidize and sometimes because of the coating the rust will start from the inside out. Lift the burner from the back of the barbecue and slide it away from you. Check to see if it is corroding from within.
The single venturi tube extends from the bottom of the burner into the control panel where it slides over the gas orifice at the tip of the control valve. It is possible for the gas valve to get a small insect crawl in through the orifice and build a nest inside the small cavity inside the control valve.
Remove the burner to reach through the inner firewall with a ratchet to pull the orifice and then check the inside of the orifice and the inside of the valve behind the orifice. If something is clogging the orifice the gas will flow unevenly and you may have flame-flashing inside the control panel which will destroy the lubrication in the control valves and will destroy the ignition parts inside the control panel.
I suggest the check valve solution with the drip tray removed so you can look from under the control panel for gas leaking through the air holes in the venturi tubes. Also, remove the control panel and leak-test the valve with soapy water because if previous flashing occurred the first casualty is usually the seal between the valve and the gasket which can lead to more leaking gas.
Check valve:
Turn everything off (tank and bbq).
Disconnect hose and regulator from LP tank.
With tank disconnected, turn the BBQ on. Turn every valve to "high" and leave it for 5 minutes.
Turn everything off -- completely off.
Reconnect tank but turn the tank on very, very slow. The check valve problem occurs when gas "hits" a swing arm too hard as the gas leaves the cylinder so turn the cylinder on very slow and then relight the grill.

Can't get the heat higher than 375 degrees, we've reset the regulator and cleaned everything but still can't get it any hotter. The flame is quite low also, do you have a solution?


If the is still "quite low", the problem lies with the grill's regulator and how you turned the tank ON.

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.

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

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. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The burners are no longer producing as much heat. There seems to b low gas flow. I have cleaned the entire grill interior including the burners. They do not seem to e blocked with any debris.


Turn off your LP gas Tank. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve on very very slowly, until it's all the way ON. Now, try lighting your burners one at a time and the flame height should be back to normal. Just remember to turn the tank valve on very very slowly each time, after you have turned the tank valve off.

It that didn't solve your problem, your gas tank is probably empty. If thats the case, be sure you turn the filled or new tank on very very slowly.

Let me know if this helped get you back to grilling.

Flare behind temperature knobs on jenn-air gas grill


This seems to be a problem for most Jenn-Air users. The burners are defective, rusted or clogged and allowing the flame to "back up." You most likely have a melted electronic ignitor as well as gas valve damage. The new burners that I received this week for my model 720-0061-LP are 1/2 inch shorter than previous versions. Time will tell if this fixed the problem. I would call Nexgrill and get all new burners and inspect the gas valve area for damage. Since 2004, I am on my 5th set of burners, glad they were free since I have a lifetime warranty on my model.

Propane grill wont ignite


Well, it sounds like your grill is experiencing vapor lock. Vapor lock is basically air caught in the gas line and there is a relatively easy method to fix this. I want you to try this method and tell me what you get, ok? First, open the tank's valve, then open the burner valve and light the grill. Immediately after you see a blue flame, turn off the tank's valve, count to five and then close the burner valve. Repeat this procedure three times, the problem should clear itself.

If you are still experiencing problems, the regulator may be faulty and needs to be tested next, so go get a new regulator from your Lowe's and run the procedure again. If after all this, you are still experiencing the problem, let me know here. Good luck!

Only enough gas flow for 1 of 3 burners


Shut off the tank and remove it from the grill. open all valves. close all valves. Reconnect tank to cooker and SLOWLY open the valve a hair. Then retry.Something in the dang newer safety tanks cause this phenom.

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.
