Common Gas Grill Problems  

gerry Voorhees - Thursday, September 28, 2017

Your gas grill can be as important as your stove when it comes to cooking meals for holidays or even just a Monday night dinner. Most grill owners keep their grill covered or under some sort of protection, but the grill could still be subjected to weather elements. This exposure combined with the frequency of use can contribute to some common gas grill problems. You can solve some problems, but others may require the help of the professionals at Appliance Science. 

Low Flame/Low Temperature

A grill producing a low flame and temperatures could have a faulty fuel line regulator. Regulators can stick causing the grill not to get enough gas. You can attempt to correct this problem by opening the grill, turning off and disconnecting the gas line. Then turn all control valves to high. Wait one minute and then turn all valves to the off position. Once the valves are safely off, reconnect the gas line and slowly turn the gas back on. Relight the grill and see if the flames and temperature have returned to normal. If the flames and temperature are still too low, it may be time to call in Appliance Science to replace the regulator. Our professionals are trained to repair gas appliances safely and efficiently.

Uneven Flames/Hot Spots

Gas grill burners can become clogged over time. This causes one burner to cool off and the others to burn hotter. This can be corrected by cleaning the burners with a steel brush. If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have the burner replaced.

Grill Won’t Ignite

If your grill won’t ignite, try cleaning the igniter. If the grill still doesn’t light, it could be a faulty igniter or wiring. A trained technician from Appliance Science can safely replace parts and wiring.
