Dear Kgeibel,

The orifice is basically a small nut with a very small hole in it. This small hole lets all the gas into the grill. If it is blocked or has leakage in any way (dirt, cobwebs, spiders, etc.) it must be cleaned out. To access the orifice you must unscrew the gas valve from the burner. On models with an igniter, you must first remove the four screws holding the control panel on before you can unscrew the gas valve. Once you have access to the gas valve, remove the regulator hose. It's a good idea to use two wrenches to do this. Grasp the flat part of the gas valve with one wrench and hold it tightly. With the other wrench, remove the regulator hose. Then, loosen the flat lock nut located at the end of the valve next to the air shutter. Once loosened, you can unscrew the entire gas valve from the neck of the burner. (The air shutter and bug screen will also come off when you unscrew the gas valve.) With an adjustable wrench, unscrew the orifice from the gas valve and hold it up in the air to view any possible obstructions. Run a broom straw or some other small rod through the orifice to make sure it is clean. BE CAREFUL not to do anything to make the hole in the orifice bigger.

please rate this solution.Thank You Kgeibel

What would cause a gas smell around a safety valve

IF you believe there is a serious leak get out and call the fire department. If not you can use soapy water in a spray bottle to check for leaks. Note that some regulators have small releases of gas when the diaphragm moves and this is normal.

Weber grill replaced hose because of faulty regulator had smelled gas and low cook temp. grill is 4 to 5 yrs old. Connected new hose did soapy water thing no leaks at hose connects. Still smell gas when...

Lisa, when you conducted the soapy water test, how long did you leave the soapy water on each fitting, before you determined there were no leaks? Sometimes, it can take 5 minutes or more for a leak to show up. You should also soap text the tank valve itself.

If no burners were ON when you tested for leaks (and apparently didn't find any), the problem still lies in the Hose/Regulator assembly connections or the tank valve, When you test the tank valve, do it after the valve has been opened very, very slowly (Slow motion, slow).

Hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem

If you have already disconnected the hose from the tank. Track it back to where it connects to the burner(s) manifold. It should be up under the grill head. You should see a brass nut. Using an appropriately sized open end wrench, loosen this nut and the hose will disconnect from the grill.

The new Hose/Regulator Assembly will simply attach in the reverse order of how you removed the faulty one. After installing the new one and connecting the hose to the tank. Open the valve on the tank about halfway and check the connections for leaks. Thick soapy water, brushed on with a paint brush will work for detecting leaks. Look for bubbles other than those made by the soapy water. If you see one, tighten the connection a bit more. Be sure not to cross thread the nut, when installing it.

If you haven't purchase a new one yet, you can the Hose/regulator Assembly at any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories. They run about $30.00.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling.

Is it normal to get a faint gas smell when you hook up you'r gas dryer?

Absolutely. Your dryer runs on gas, and the gas kicks on when the heating element engages. It should be so faint though. If you smell it continuously then check your connections with soapy water, if their is a leak then shut off the gas and try using soap pipe dope, or teflon tape on the threads, then recheck. My guess is its the regulator near the heating element. Good luck

You may have to use dish soap straight, do not use the brush. I use an old spray bottle and dish soap straight, not watered down, to find my leaks. Gas is a very low psi. Soapy water will not bubble up. It can and will just be pushed out of the way. Do not forget any other gas appliances in the house, hot water heater, stove, any thing that uses gas. Please check all. Recheck your stove and even any connections inside, on/off valve etc. Hope this helps Fixya up.

Everything hooked up but smells like gas. Checked line with soapy water mix. No leaks. What's wrong?

If everything is hooked up and you still smell gas you still have a leak. The gas valve could be letting out gas if the burner is not igniting, however it sounds like you have a small leak on your line which will not be detected by just soapy water. You need to go to a hardware store or a place like home depot and get what's called MegaBubble Leak Detector or a similar brand of leak detector. What this stuff is designed to do is bubble up with massive bubbles where your leak is and it will detect even the smallest leak. If there is no large bubbles there is no leak. Don't be afraid to over do it when putting this stuff on the pipe.

You have to purge the air from the lines.
At the water heater, take a wrench and loosen the gas line until you smell gas coming from the line. Then tighten the gas line. Check it for leaks with a soapy water solution. Let the gas smell clear, then light the pilot on the heater.

Oven - Very bad gas smell

Very Dangerous! turn off supply to appliance, supply ventalation and call service tech. If you are very familiar with gas appliances and know what you are doing then you can try to locate the leak using soapy water or leak detector liquid. make sure all flames and other possible sources of ignition have been eliminated. Keep room well ventilated. Spray leack detector on all fittings and look for leaks replace or tighten parts as needed. This responce is asuming you have not blown up already, seriously dangerous situation you have there.
