Question about Weber Baby Q Grill

Propane tank with regulator

We recently had a line installed from our large propane tank that supplies the house to our deck where we have our BABY Q. The plumber said there was an attachment we needed to add since the large tank already has a regulator on it. Can anyone tell me what that part would be? I tried the Webber parts online service but it is down for service.

    We used to use a regular small propane gas tank such as those found in Home Depot and the like. We were told we need a new line that does not have a regulator.

    Does the line now hook up to the Baby Q? Really not much to it: Big tank -> Regulator -> Line -> left-handed connection to grill.

You're fine using a regulator, just keeps the propane 'regulated' : ) Since you already have it, I'd try the one you have. I'd figure your regulator for the big tank is set for low pressure, really may be fine by itself, but the additional one at the Webber end won't hurt anything. This is a YMMV, try cheapest way first using what you have, not much of a problem to change to the other one if it doesn't work.

Regulator not working properly. Have to suck on little hose to get burners to light This is the manual for your furnace, but if you have anything in the gas supply line than it is probably the supply line itself, assure that a "trap" was installed just prior to the connection to the furnace, any moisture should have been captured there. If this is a propane version give your propane supplier a call and see if you are having a problem with the outside tank. Your gas supply either propane or natural gas should be the least likely source of your problem.

Hooked up proane tank used once then no flame on grill. There is propane in the tank but no propane flows out of it either when hooked up to the grill or when opening the valve directly on the tank. This...

The valve on the tank has an internal valve that will not allow you to release propane into the atmosphere. It must be connected to a regulator line in order to open.
It sounds like your regulator has failed. Remove the regulator assembly, inspect it carefully for blockage or hose kinks. If there none, try replacing the regulator assembly.

Unable to get gas our of 'Blue Rhino" propane

The problem is an easy fix. Replace the current Hose/Regulator Assembly with a new one. They run about $30.00, at home centers and hardware stores that sell grills and accessories.

Once you install the new one and connect it to the gas tank, open the gas tank valve Very Very Slowly (Slow Motion, Slow) until it's fully open. If you don't do it this, the new regulator will lockup.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I purchased a used Masterbuilt veranda gas grill. The gas regulator fits a small propane tank. Is it possible to replace the regulator so it will fit a large sized propane tank?

Yes, it can be converted to accept a 20 Lb LP grill tan. Contact Masterbuilt Customer Service
1.800.489.1581 to obtain the new hose/regulator assembly.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!

I'm going to hook up the grill to our house propane gas line and not use a propane tank. Will I need a special hook up device? Where is the connection on the grill? Thank you. Frank...

Yes Frank, you will need some specialty parts. The gas line from your tank will need a shut off valve near the grill. You cannot hard pipe the line to the grill. Code requires that your use a 12' long, rubber, Quick Disconnect Gas Hose. They are normally sold as a kit and should have all the necessary fittings. You will need to remove the grill's hose/regulator assembly, as it won't be necessary any more. That is, unless you have a high pressure propane system. Then you will need a regulator on the gas line coming from the tank to the grill. If that is the case, it should have the capacity to carry the maximum Btu output of your grill, if all the burners where ON and at their highest setting, at the same time. And finally, and probably the most important, have the knowledge and skill necessary to properly hookup an outdoor gas appliance. Or have a good friend that is a Certified Gas Technician to help you. Of course, your propane provider would probably do it for you. Which, might be money well spent.

Hope it all works out for you and Happy Grilling!!

How do I connect my propane gas grill up to the 1/2 inch gas connection that goes to my large propane tank that is also used for the gas firplace. The large tank does have a regulator. This would elimate...

Thomas, unless you have flaring tools, 1/2" flexible copper refrigerant type piping, the necessary flared couplings, unions, inline shutoff valve, etc., as well as an extensive knowledge of pipe fitting and installation of gas appliances, I don't recommend you under taking this as a DIY project. There are just to many things that can go wrong and is best left to the pros. I am sure your propane provider can do it for you. After all, you'll be using more propane and they like that. With that said, it can not be directly hard piped to the grill. Either you or the gas company can provide a 12' long, rubber, quick disconnect gas hose, that will go from the ON/OFF gas line valve to the grill. As that is a national code requirement.

Good luck and Happy Grilling.

Cannot conect regulator to small 16.4 oz propane tank

It must have some sort of packing spacer you need to remove from the hose to attach the tank. LOL
