Yes, it was designed for use that way, assuming there are no leaks, check with soapy water.

Grill was moved slightly. Now won't start.


Motion sensor inside spiffy new fangled gas bottle tripped. Shut off the gas and remove the bottle.
Open all gas control valves on the the grill and close them all making sure they are all off. Reconnect the Grill to the gas bottle and crack open the gas slowly about a quarter turn only. Light that puppy and party on.

I bought the Ducane Affinity 3100 from Ace Hardware in 2009. The paint on the inside of the grill lid has started to bubble, peel and fall off. Is this covered by the manufactory warranty. Is it still safe...


According to the Owners Manual for your and the reading of the Warranty, No the paint flaking under the grill hood is not covered under warranty (see link below). As far as safety of using it is concerned ... only if you clean all the flaking paint and any residue, and repaint it with High Heat Grill Paint. This should only be applied after all greasy residue has been removed and only in light coats. Several light coats, in fact. It should be allowed to thoroughly dry between each coat, before applying the next coat. Once the final coat is applied, wait at least five days before using the grill. Be sure no paint gets down of the cooking grates or the burners. You can get the High Heat Grill Paint , form the same Ace Hardware store you bought the grill from. I believe Ace carries Krylon, which is one of the best High Heat Paints.

I have used this bbq once and it did not heat up enough to cook sausages ,what are we doing wrong and how can we fix it ,we used just a normal lpg gas bottle as we can not find propraine


Hi,
I question if the gas in the ipg bottle is propane. All gases have different latent heat. Use the gas and bottle size that the manufacture recommends.

Grill is one old and won't light. There is no gas coming from the tank to the grill. Is it the regulator?


age of the grill is irrelevant, i am old and i still can do few thingzzzz...

i assume that your regulator is connected directly to the bottle, then hose to your bottle, then hose is connected to the regulator and other end to the grill?

or it is bottle, hose, regulator, grill?

you need to follow the path regardless, be outside, light breeze is better, no open flame in at least 20m (yards) radius in any direction.

1. close gas bottle/tank
2. disconnect, everything from the bottle
3. crack open tank valve and hear if gas is escaping, close valve back
4. connect regulator to the bottle and again crack open the valve, hear if you have esacping gas, allow actually whiff of gas against your cheek or wetted finger to establish the flow. close the valve
5. connect hose to the regulator (procedure is reversed if first is hose and then regulator), crack open the valve, hear for escaping gas, check against wetted finger and cheek if there is flow, close the valve
6. connect your grill open all valves on it and open valve on the tank/bottle. allow free flow for about 30sec, close valves on grill. vent grill for about two minutes, try to ignite any of the burners. if burner ignite, you solved the problem, if they do not, and you did have flow on all previous stages, close bottle valve, disconnect everything from grill, clean grill valves and nozzles (burner have nozzle inside!), reconnect and vent again, try ignite, if ignition occures, you solve the problem, if not, then you are due for new grill...

if at any stage you do not have gas flow, this meant that this particular piece of equipment is in trouble, this particular piece of equipment need then repair or replacement, under no circumstance pull apart the reducer! NO OPEN FLAME DURING TESTING!!!

Hi, I have just bought a Weber 100 BBQ. I have a


You have a couple of questions. In order: 1. Flame may not be visible because it burns very clean. 2. When they say 'turn gas off', they actually mean 'turn gas tank off'. 3. It's not necessary to remove the tank after every use. Just make sure the gas valve is off and the entire grill and tank are covered. I do remove the tank, and store it in an outdoor shed during the winter.

Weber Q300 - Gas bottle runs out very quickly


Yes turn the valve off at the tank so you do not loose gas. You do not have to disconnect the tank from the BBQ though.

Good Luck and Please Rate FixYa!

Sears gas grill


If it was me I would return it. You did the right thing by testing it on another grill. You should not have to accept a new grill that is not working properly.

Propane Problems


The salesman at ACE Hardware told me I needed a grill tip cleaner. Seems the outflow valve from the tank can get crusted and there is a device called a gril tip cleaner that can help restore the gas flow to a higher level.
