We recently purchased the PB1100PSC2 combo smoker/grill. The smoker side has worked great. When we turn on the gas grill, the flame barely comes on, temp will only get to around 275 degrees. We have already checked for leaks. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else.

I have had the happen on other gas grills, normally one of two issues ....
a) some sort of "air-lock" for lack of a better way of putting in the valve on the tank. MAKE SURE EVERTHING IS OFF AND COOL
- to correct I have just un-screwed and screwed back on a few times with the valve closed, if that doesn't work slightly unscrew for a second with valve partially open, with no open flame or ignition sources close by!
b) the other one that happened on our other grill was that over the winter some crude got into the burner where the gas outlet slips in. Took out the effected burner and cleaned out.
c) Other than that check the tank - new tank? does it work on other BBQ?

sometimes when you think there is enough gas in the tank there is not enough pressure to get a hot flame, change or refill the tank.
I always have three tanks so it's easy to check if it's the tank or not.

We are gonna replace the regulator and see if that is it. It's new but still may be defective. The other item that we are planning to look at is the gas line that connects to the burners.

we just got two tanks refilled, will try swapping them out to see if that helps.

Have you tried opening the gas valve on the tank really slowly? I’ve had this happen a few times on our gas grill and griddle both. It resolved the issue for me.

There is a special valve on propane tanks that if it sees a major gas flow it shuts down thinking there is a leak! You may have to try a few times but turn off the burners then the gas then turn on the burners then off again now open the propane tank slowly then try lighting it, may have to do this 2-3 times. I've had this happen on my Weber gas grill. If this cures you problem remember to open the gas slowly every time.

I have had this same grill for two weeks and using a Yummly thermometer, my ambient temp on the grill side easily hits 495-500F.
