If your grill has wheels, make sure you lock them to prevent the grill from traveling, especially during fast approaching storm conditions. On average, we see 3 to 4 grills each week that suffer from “Flashback” due to falling over in storms. Flashback occurs when the valves separate from the burners or the manifold line causing the gas to flow into the control panel. It then becomes a serious hidden danger when you light the grill to cook and the next think you know you have very hot knobs or even worse; flames shooting out from under the control panel.
This will cause the knobs to melt, melt electronics and/or warping the control panel assembly. Manufacturer’s highly recommend having a certified grill technician to examine the grill to insure it is safe to use following a serve storm. If you believe that your grill might be subject to an issue after a storm, please call us for assistance. Grill safety is very important to us at Casual Grill & Furniture services.
