Hi boltbucrayfa...
I think your culprit is the gas regulator valve...
If it is not working properly then it will not deliver the proper amount of gas to the burners.
Check all your burners to make sure they are not plugged...
The when you are outside away from Flames and ignition sources.
Remove the hose from the grill...open the gas to the grill (you have the hose off the grill) and listen to the flow of gas...if it is very low then there is your problem.
You can shut off the flow of gas, then tap the gas regulator on the sides, top and bottom lightly with a hammer and then turn back on the gas to see if the gas flow increased...if it did, then shut off the gas and rehook up the gas line to the grill..and your good to go grilling again.
Some gas regulators have an adjustment under the removable cap.
If the gas flow did not increase, the replace the gas regulator
Please take time to rate me

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 and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I'm going to make a wild assumption here, and that's when you attempt to light the grill, you push in and hold a gas release button when you first hit the ignitor. I'm also going to presume taht you can hear gas hissing when you do this. If you can't hear the hissing, you have a blocked jet. Presuming that you can, and that you can probably get the grill to light if you stand there like an idiot, holding the button in all day, then read on (If I'm way off base, please add a comment on the thread and I'll get back to you).

This is probably a faulty safety cutout. When you light the grill, the flames heat a temperature sensor that, once hot, increases the pressure in the sensor's copper pipe and opens a safety valve to allow gas to continue to flow (It's made like this so, if your flame gets blown out, the sensor cools and cuts off the gas supply, making it safe from gas leaks). These sensors occasionally fail, and very sensibly "Fail safe" - No pressure in the sensor pipe, the valve won't open and there is no gas to the burner.
If you take a look inside the grill, where the burner is, you will see the sensor, usually the bit that is in the flame is cylindrical, about an inch long made of metal about 3 or 4 mm thick, tapering at the end. It will be held in place by a nut that fits on a thread at the base of the sensor. Running from the sensor is a copper pipe that runs to the cutoff valve. Unbolt the sensor and withdraw it from the hole it is mounted in, trace the copper pipe back to the valve (where it is usually screwed into the valve with a 10mm connector that looks like a car brake pipe connector. Unbolt from the valve. These sensors are widely used on most gas appliances (Boilers, gas fires, cooker hob burners and patio heaters all use the same kind of sensor). You should be able to get a replacement from any gas appliance service agent. If you go into a shop, take it with you. The only thing you need to do is make sure the replacement you get is long enough. If you are offered one that is slightly longer, that

The problem may lie with the grill's regulator and the way the tank was turned ON.

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

If the grill lights, but the flames are low, try replacing the hose and regulator.

Uniflame FG2204C... | Answered on Jul 05, 2011


Bob, your wife is partially correct. However, both burners should have blue flames with orange tips. Cleaning the burners and the their venturi valves, should solve the problem. When I say cleaning them, I mean removing and cleaning them.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

You probably do anything directly wrong. First, make sure you have adequate gas in the tank.
if you do, turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
Once the tank valve is fully open Light one burner and turn it to it;'s highest setting. Has the flame eight returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burner and turn it to high. Do both flame heights look normal. If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem and you had enough gas in the tank, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. It runs about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Hope that solved your problem and Happy Grilling!!

Try replacing the hose and regulator, easy to do and inexpensive.

Uniflame FG2204C... | Answered on Jul 13, 2010


The ignitor operates likr a spark plug. When you press the button a small electric charge is passed through the attached wire to the small electrode inside the grill creating a small spark. The main reason this fails is because cooking grease covers the metal contact plate and won't allow a spark. Clean the electrode and dry completely. This should solve the problem.
