FAQ Subject: Plugged Up Gas Grill
Hello Sir/ Madam,
I have a gas barbeque. The gas tank is more than half full, When I start the barbeque, only very little flame comes out of the burner, although the barbeque is thoroughly clean. Could you please be kind and shed some light as to where could the plug be?
Thanks in advance for your kind cooperation.
Let me break it to you gently. What you have is a GAS GRILL with problems. You may have a problem with the pressure reducing valve. Remove the top cap to see if it shows a screw head. If so that means that it is probably adjustable. With the grill lit, turn the screw clockwise for half a turn and see if the flame changes. If there is no change return to the previous position.
If that does not solve the problem, it may be in the burner. Turn the gas off. Remove the burner, tap it gently and flush with water. If water does not exit from all holes, unplug those with a piece of wire.
If that does not solve the problem, you may have a faulty valve. If you can disassemble, check it out.
If none of that solves the problem, call your local propane distributor and see if they have a technician that can help you.
