Cannot draw gas fully out of my tank

When my gas tank if full, everything is fine. But when it is 2/3 full, I can't seem to maintain high flames and need to top off the tank. Someone mentioned "regulator" on the weber not functioning. This has been a problem ever since I assembled the Weber. Thanks for your help

I had the same problem. Do you happen to have a Blue Rhino tank? If so they are **** and tend to not work well. Go to Walmart and by an empty tank and fill it yourself at a gas station or somewhere. This solved my problem. You will end up saving money on gas too in the long run cause you can keep the tank forever.

Yes,it definitely sounds like the regulator to me.First check to see if the regulator is still under warranty,if not replace regulator with a Weber or comparable one and try again.

It could be that your tank was not completely purged of air when it was filled the first time. This would result in the tank not accepting as much propane because of the air inside. Best way to check is to either weigh the tank when full or get a full tank from your local Home Depot, etc, and see if the problem still persists.

Low flame


turn everything off and disconnect the regulator from the gas tank
turn the bbq on high, every valve on high.
leave it like that for 3 minutes.
turn all the valves to off -- completely off.
reconnect the LP cylinder but turn the valve on very, very slowly for the first full 360 degrees.

that is the process for resetting the check valve safety feature which gets triggered by mistake from the presure of a full cylinder with the OPD flaot pressing on the liquid.

I cleaned my grill to try and solve this problem. I blew out the burner and there's no debris in it. I put everything back and connected to the propane. I still only get a flame that is on low. ...


To get a high flame, do the following:

Be sure you have adequate gas in the tank to maintain combustion. If that checks out OK, start with step # 1.

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.

I cannot get a flame going on my grill - it has slowly stopped - I've taken everything out and cleaned to the nth degree - replaced the grill regulator; replaced the gas tank regulator, etc. The dial...


Here's the problem and the solution. The new regulator you just installed, locked up when you turned ON new tank. This oocurs quite frequently with the fairly new OPD equipped grill tanks.

Solution:

1. Turn the gas tank's 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 valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners
the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with
a little help). Remember to ALWAYS open the tank valve very, very, slowly.

Happy Grilling!!

Just purchased new Brinkman 5 burner Pro series. Worked fine when I tested it but now the main burner is the only one that will ignite and it won't stay on. The side burner works great.


First, check the gas line hose from the tank to the grill. Look for kinks or twisting that would restrict the flow of gas to the burners. If you find any, turn the gas tank valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and straighten the hose, before reconnecting it to the tank. Then open the gas valve Very, Very Slowly, until it's fully open.

If you didn't find any kinks or twist, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF, Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
2. Turn on any pair of burners to High for io minute and then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes has elapsed, reconnect the hose to the tank.
4. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until it's fully open.
5. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look
correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look correct?
If so, you solved the problem!

Hope this helped you . Please let me know and Happy Grilling.

Grill is fairly new, can't get it to ignite fully. seems like the propane flow is constricted.


Simple solution. Turn off the tank valve, disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (I mean slow motion, slow) until it's fully open. Light the burner that's farthest away from the tank first. Turn the flame up to high after it's lit. Now proceed to the other burners following the same lighting procedure. If all the flames appear as they should, you've solved the problem. If not, repeat the full procedure again.
But, I think the first time will do it.

In the future, remember to turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY, so that the burst of gas won't lockup the grill's regulator again.

Happy Grilling!! Please let me know if this solved your problem.

Burners run cool when set on high, when all but one burner is off, the single burner opporates correctly. Grill worked fine before.


There have been issues lately with the way regulators are not drawing gas out of the cylinders properly, and how some of the newer grills are not heating properly.

The issue with them not heating properly goes back (usually, from just what I have observed) to the position of the gas knobs at the time the cylinder valve is opened. On some grills, if the gas knobs are open when the cylinder valve is opened, the burners will not get the maximum amount of gas to all burners, but the performance of one burner is enhanced if the others are turned off, and this sounds like what's got you.

Turn the gas cylinder valve to the off position, and bleed the gas pressure down at the burners. Close the burner valves. Slowly crack open the tank valve, and work it slowly to full open. With the grill lid open, select and light one burner. If it operates properly, light the other burners. If the first burner does not operate properly, repeat the procedure. If you cannot operate your grill like it is supposed to, the issue may fall to the regulator. If the regulator is an older style, it may not actually be fully compatible with some newer cylinders. This seems to be a newer phenomenon, and seems to be found with the type of cylinders that are swapped for a refill. If this is your case, you will need to upgrade to the newer regulator.

Best regards, --W/D--
