Propane broiler blowing out

Hi All, Our Force 10 two burner / broiler has an issue that I am not sure how to fix. Thanks for any suggestions.

The broiler will ignite and work fine for a minute or two the is sounds like it is getting blown out followed by a pressurized gas escaping kind of sound. We turn off and re-ignite then it blows out again.

Any ideas ?

Thanks

When the burner ignites you must keep the knob pressed in for at least ten seconds. It takes that long for the thermocouple to warm up. Not sure why that particular thermocouple takes so long but it does.

Thanks boatpoker but it runs for a couple of minutes before the first blowout so I don't think it's the thermocoupler. In fact the T.C. should shut off the flow but I turn it off so fast I don't think it has time time cool.

Thanks

Re: Propane broiler blowing out

A friend of mine had a Force 10 broiler. It would blow out with any wind, from any direction. He never got it sorted out and got a different broiler. Your problem sounds like it is not from wind so you must have a different issue. Good luck.
