Not enough information. If we assume the other two control valves are turned on, are the orifices clogged, are the valves leaking, are there safety valves attached the the natural gas line to detect leaks?

look down inside the valve stem to see if there is a tiny screw. this is an adjustment for the valve to allow more or less gas flow. if the valve was damaged or tampered with this could generate better flow. if the appliance went a long time without being used the valves could be clogged. remove the orifices and blow out the orifice and the valve with the orifice removed.

You may have a clogged orifice in the valve. You have to take the side burner apart to get to the valve orifice. Use a straightened paper clip to check for a blockage.

If the is still "quite low", the problem lies with the grill's regulator and how you turned the tank ON.

To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

If your grill came with a smoker box, you soak the wood chips of your choice in water for aprroximately 20 minutes, drain them and put them in your smoker box. Then cook. If your grill did not come with a smoker box, you can purchase one seperately.

To know the part numbers for what you need, I would need the Model Number of your Char-Broil Grill.
So, to speed things up for you, I have provided a link to Appliance Factory Parts website. They are the leader in replacement parts for grills (even discontinued models) and household appliances. To conduct a search for what you need, you will need the correct Model Number of your grill. You can even find your Owners Manual there and determine the parts you actually need.


Hoe this helped you. Happy Grilling!!

Mainly because LP is heavier than air. So instead of dissipating like natural gas into the atmosphere, LP tends to hang around and puddle up. That is why you always need to bubble test for leaks. On these newer tanks Mr Ralph Nader has been at work. New regulation shut down the gas internally if the gas goes out the bottle too fast. So it is best to have all valves closed and SLOWLY open the valve so you won't trip the safety device inside.
