How to Protect Your Gas Grill

So, how do you avoid a sudden grill breakdown? The answer is simple: don’t let your gas grill go so long without maintenance or a repair service that you let it get to that point. When a grill starts to have some trouble, it will display some very clear signs that things are starting to go wrong. All you need to do is schedule a gas grill repair service before a small complication turns into a ruined summer or fall afternoon. But how do you know what to look out for? Here are five signs you need to schedule a grill repair:

  1. Disproportionate cook times or uneven heating. Any grill master can probably dictate the exact amount of time it takes to cook a good ribeye. If your perfect medium rare is coming out too rare, or more horrifically, well-done, then it’s probably not you. It’s most likely an indication that you are in need of a grill repair.
  2. Unusual flame colors. A well-fed and properly functioning grill flame should be a cool blue hue. If the flame is yellow or orange, then it’s time to get your grill serviced. It’s also possible that the burners need a simple cleaning, in which case some simple grill troubleshooting could rectify the issue.
  3. Abnormal flames or sparks are present. Gas grills aren’t exactly dangerous, but they sure can be when flames start to lick the controls or shoot out of the bottom. If you ever spot fire where there shouldn’t be, you need to schedule a grill repair immediately.
  4. Gas odors are present when grill is in use. It’s not uncommon to get a quick whiff of gas when you first kick on the grill. But if the odor persists or is noticeable when the grill isn’t in use, then you could have a gas leak on your hands—and no one wants a gas leak on their hands.
  5. Controls are uncomfortably hot. Heat spreading where it shouldn’t be is often a grill owner’s first sign of a problem, along with unusual cook times or food coming out under or over cooked. If the dials or handles on your grill are hot to the touch, or even just warmer than usual, it’s a good time to schedule a professional service.
