Hey everyone! It’s your online griddle friend here, coming to you with all the info you need on troubleshooting, fixing, and finding replacement parts for your Blackstone Griddle.

I own one of these griddles and can tell you first-hand that they are a great way to cook pretty much any type of food. That being said, owning one also means you’ll need to know how to troubleshoot and fix any issues that arise.

To help out, I’ve put together some great tips for keeping your Blackstone Griddle running like new and have also included where to find genuine replacement parts in case the ones you have stop working properly.

Before we get into it, let’s go over some of the pros and cons of owning a Blackstone Griddle. Pros of this particular griddle include its size – it easily fits four or more burgers – and its durability; even after several uses, it still looks like new. The griddle is also great for making pancakes, scrambled eggs, sandwiches, desserts, and vegetable dishes. Plus, it’s easy to clean and maintain.

On the downside, Blackstone Griddles don’t come with a lot of accessories; you’ll want to buy a few extra items like a heat shield, griddle scraper, and spatula/flipper if you want to make the most of your griddle. Additionally, while they are durable, they may show signs of wear sooner than griddles of other brands.

Griddle Troubleshooting Steps

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get into some troubleshooting advice. The most common problem with a Blackstone Griddle is improper heating. If you’re having difficulty getting your griddle to heat up properly, first be sure that the gas supply is connected and that the burner valves for the griddle are in the appropriate “on” position. You should also make sure the regulator is in the “open” position so that enough LP (gas) is reaching the griddle.

Next up, check your igniter. If it looks worn, dirty, or isn’t sparking, you’ll want to find a replacement; make sure to buy the correct model for your particular griddle. If all of the above seems fine and your griddle still won’t heat, the burners may be clogged or defective.

To solve this issue, you’ll need to remove the top griddle plate and clean any debris that might be clogging the burners. If you’re still having problems, you may need to replace the regulator, burner, or gas line.

Finally, if you find that some of your griddle parts like the grease cup, drip pan, regulator handle, griddle scraper, utensils, etc. need replacing, you can buy official Blackstone Griddle accessories from their website or from some retailers including big box stores, sporting good stores, and hardware stores.

You can also find some Blackstone-compatible parts from third-party vendors if you’d like.
I hope these tips for troubleshooting and fixing Blackstone Griddle issues as well as finding official and compatible replacement parts have been helpful. Take care when you’re cooking, and have fun griddling!
