Does your Char-Broil gas grill need to be repaired?
Some burners on your Char-Broil grill can get clogged or otherwise compromised so fuel cannot get through. Burners also won’t work if the pressure regulator malfunctions. Rust and corrosion can snap grill grates in half and put holes in the grill body while outdoor elements or accidents can break wooden planks and put dents in the metal grill parts. These and dozens of other issues can plague your gas grill and cause you to have to pick up your toolbox to do some repair work.
What are some common gas grill issues?
- Rusted and corroded components can mean disaster for your grill. If left unchecked, the oxidation will continue until the grill becomes useless. If oxidation is already occurring, there are a few steps you can take to fix the situation. If key pieces like the regulator, burners, grill grate or ignition switch have excessive amounts of rust, then you need to replace them. If the rust isn’t excessive, then you can remove it with a small metal grinding tool and then coat the parts with rustproofing treatment. Purchasing a waterproof tarp or grill cover can help avoid further issues.
- If you are experiencing a low flame even when the grill is set to high, then there are a few possibilities. Start by checking the regulator. Shut off the valve on the propane tank and disconnect it from the hose, and then turn all the burners on high for a couple of minutes to reset the regulator. Reconnect the tank and turn on the valve. If the issue isn’t resolved, take some soapy water and coat the lines to the tank and the burners. If there are no bubbles, then (barring a corroded or blocked burner) the regulator is likely faulty.
- A humming sound coming from the grill is typically caused by the vibration of the pressure regulator’s diaphragm. The humming may come and go. As long as the gas flow to the burners is normal, the humming noise is nothing to be concerned with. If the pressure regulator stops the flow of gas to the burners, then you’ll likely need to replace it.
- Whistling noises are sometimes heard when a grill burner is set to high, and this can indicate that the burner has a faulty orifice that needs replacing.
- If your grill won’t ignite, then this could point to gas supply issues, or the ignition switch could be faulty.
