Any problem can prove hard to fix, if you do not take the right approach. Always make sure that the tank has been turned off and the grill has been disconnected from its fuel source. Realize, too, that you cannot work on hot grilling equipment. Let a hot piece of equipment cool down before trying to repair it in any way.
Once you remember those basic bits of advice, you should feel ready to try fixing almost any of the grill’s components. Of course, it helps if you learn how to match particular problems to the component that is most apt to have malfunctioned. The following tips should help you to achieve that goal.
Suppose your grilling appliance develops hot spots when the outdoor chef tries to use it
That is a sign that the grilled items do not get heated evenly. Uneven heating shows that drippings from grilled meat have clogged one or more of the grill’s parts. Use a wire brush to remove such deposits or hire the services of an appliance repair company in Stoney Creek.
What could be the problem if your grill does not light?
Before you deal with the appliance’s failure to light, you need to learn about the two different lighters that manufacturers put on grilling equipment. One is a push button device that displays piezo-electric properties. A second type is battery powered.
Obviously, any piece of equipment that relies on batteries might need a new battery, if it fails to function, once it has been turned on. If a new battery does not solve the problem, study the performance of all the burners. Will any of them light? If no burners will light up, then the grill’s wiring must be bad.
If only one burner fails to light up, then the problem does not result from a defect in the wiring. Instead, it has been caused by a clogged lighter. Again, you will need to use your wire brush.
What action should you take if you have a sticky fuel line?
That problem indicates that you need to focus your attention on the grill’s regulator. Release the excessive pressure on the regulator. In that way, you should manage to aid production of a higher flame and a higher temperature.
The message in the color of the produced flame
Ideally, the flame should be blue; it should not be yellow or orange. A certain obstruction can produce yellow or orange flames. That is an obstruction in the venturi tubes. Still, such an obstruction should not be viewed as the only thing that can trigger production of orange or yellow flames. A misalignment of the venturi tubes can produce the same result. Those tubes are supposed to mix the fuel with oxygen from the air.
