Gas BBQ - Won't light

I have a Vermont Castings BBQ and recently switched the propane tanks. THe grill was working fine and now it does not seem to be getting any gas. I hooked up the new tank and turned it on and it won't fire. There is no smell of propane and the starter is not the issue as I also tried lighting it manually. Is it possible the connection is not being made at the tank? Are there gaskets that I need to check for on the tank and connector to make sure it is set up properly? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I have also tried 2 tanks, and cannot get a fire...It was working perfectly when it ran out of propane..One fix , was to drop it on the ground from a couple inches acouple times or more, to loosen something. Tried that on the first , then did it for good measure before hooking up the 2nd..still no connection...These have been exchange tanks. I wish I had just gotten MY original tank filled...

    something has to be done, besides buying a new BBQ....

Hi Be sure the thermostat or heat dial is set properly. If the appliance has a pilot light, be sure it's working. make sure that you connected the pipeline correctly open the faucet of the tank try to fire it up ? working ? good... NO???? close everything(faucets,plugs...) your new tank that you connected is empty.... it happens.... have a good 1

I was having the same problem with the burners not getting very hot, like it was not getting enough gas. I bounced the tank on the ground a couple of times and then turned it sideways and left it that way while I was cooking. Now I have too much flame lol. It has something to do with the tank. Good luck

There is a shut off valve in the tank. If you connect the tank too quickly this valve will be triggered. There is a way to disconnect, wait 5 min with the burner valves open, then reconnect and open the tank valve very, very slowly. This is a real pain in th @$$ when you people waiting for food. I have found that if you invert the tank this resets the shut off valve quickly..

Good luck.

With my weber bbq, you would turn off all the burner valves on the bbq and close the tank valve. Diconnect the hose from the tank and then open all the valves for the burners and leave on high for 1 minute. Shut the burner valves off and reconnect the hose and relight as normal. Works every time

Can I convert a NG Vermont Castings BBQ to Propane. moving and new house has no NG available. Model SCS 5005.


Unfortunately, Peter, for safety reasons, VC grills are not approved to be converted from one gas type to another. Each grill is manufactured, tested and approved for it's specific gas type. Converting it from LP to Natural Gas places all the liability on you, if something should go wrong as a result of the conversion. Further, you would notice a significant change in the heating ability and the lower flame height, when set on high. The reason for this, is that LP Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment.

I know you would be happy not having to refill the tank, but I think you would really disappointed in the performance of the grill, if converted to Natural Gas.

I hope this helps you and Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Vermont Casting VM450SSP Grill that needs a new Hose Regulator-S/B Valve Assembly. I have ordered two separate times what "Appliance Factory Parts" thinks is the part I need and both...


This ma=y be a case of changes in parts for your VC Grill. The ownership of Vermont Castings changed 6 years ago, when Majestic Fireplace, who was then the owner went bankrupt and Monesson Hearth products bought VC in the bankruptcy. Shortly there after, Monesson made some sweeping changes to the grill line (your model was discontinued) and really up graded what Majestic Fireplace had done with that line of grills. Overall, they started building a better quality grill.

Unless you have a piped in high pressure propane gas system, the one that Appliance Factory Parts furnished you should work fine (based on what I saw on their website). In addition, if you purchased your grill, prior to the change in 20lb LP Gas Grill Tanks Valves, 6 years ago. Some manufacturers changed their grill hoses to conform with the new OPD Valve grill tanks. It wasn't required, they just did it, to avoid regulators locking up, when the tank valve is opened to fast.

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

I want to convert my vm 600bsn grill from natural gas to propane


Because you bought your grill at Lowe's/Home Dept there is no conversion kit available. Conversion kits are available only for the MHSC made Vermont Castings grills sold at authorized dealer locations.

No gas getting to bbq


I switched to the new style 20# tank with the new turn-on knob.  I couldn't get enough gas pressure to the BBQ burners for all three burners to light or to keep a strong flame on even one burner.  The new style tanks have a safety valve on the inside of the tank that shuts the gas off if you turn the knob on too fast because the safety valve thinks there is leak.  Shut everything off and then try turning the knob on real slow, especially at first, before turning it all the way on.  If that doesn't work (it didn't for me), then replace the large plastic connection valve knob (female end) that attaches the regulator to the tank.  Mine was for the old style tank and was black (low pressure).  I went to a propane company and had them replace it with a green knob (higher pressure).  Took it home and WALA!  Everything works fine now.  But it was very frustrating trying to figure why I couldn't get any gas to the burners after buying a brand new tank.  I hope this helps solve your problems.
