Smev OF311FGT oven & grill

I have had a couple of Smev units over the years and have only ever had to replace the thermocouple on the grill including the present unit. The oven works really well and is never a problem but the grill has become a right pain. When trying to light it lights half heartedly then blows it's self out and when it does light it sounds like a lightening jet but can take 15 mins. to do toast. It used to work fine and light with the igniter but refuses to now. Any ideas?

Thanks for replying George. When I changed the thermcouple I stripped the grill right down pipes, jet & burner all washed out with a high pressure jet of propane gas then blew everything out with the air line at my garage. None of the burner holes are blocked and when it lights they all have a blue flame but not a very big one. Hence toast is 15 mins. away. Not sure about your spider theory ;-) All this points towards low gas pressure. The puzzle is everything else works fine including the oven on the same gas supply :-( As iv'e stated before the grill worked fine several months ago but gradually it got less efficient and now I'm lucky if it stays alight for for 20-30 seconds before blowing it's self out

Hi. As everything else works ok, and you have checked for blockages, perhaps the grill goes out because the flame is not heating the thermocouple enough to keep the gas turned on. Perhaps the gas flow is low because the gas on/off valve itself is faulty. Or a blockage before the gas valve.
