Kenmore Elite Grill will not start

I was using my Kenmore Elite 6 burner grill last night and the tank ran out of gas. I had it refilled and hooked it back up as normal today. Now I can't get the gas to flow to the burners. Any suggestions? I have checked the connections and they all seem fine. Please reply back to me via email at Thanks!

    I don't know where the reset button is.

    My problem is similar; it does start BUT produces very low heat. After five minutes it may be up to 150 degrees. I've shut down, disconected the tank , and waited five to ten minutes to resrat. Sometimes it works; other times it does not. I've taken the grill apart and cleaned. Same results.

The gas regulator that attaches to the tank may be bad.

I have a Kenmore grill and when I went to pull the gas tank off to get it refill a tiny plastic circular piece fell out of the connection. When I reconnected it it did not supply gas to the burners. I...

Yes, it may be the plastic ring, if you didn't reinstall it. However, it could be something else. The gas regulator may be locked up. To solve this problem, do the following :

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 ran out of gas on my grill repaced the tank and now cant get gas to flow. i repalced the regulater and still no gas. any ideas?

The problem was probably not the regulator, it's the OPD valve in the propane tank. OPD valves came about 6 or so years ago. They are an overfill prevention device. The key to overcoming your problem is fairly simple. Turn the tank valve OFF, disconnect the grill hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Now, here"s the real secret (do this very time you turn the tank ON). Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until the tank valve is fully open. Starting with the burner farthest from the tank, light it and turn it to its highest setting. If the flame height appears to be normal, do the same thing with the remaining burner(s). If all the burner's flame heights appear to now be normal, you have solved the problem. Just remember to do this every time you turn the tank valve ON.

Hope this advice solves your problem. Please let me know and please don't forget to rate my response to you. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Relace your propane regulator, they do go bad form sitting around, had the same problem you have. you should be able to disconnect from the grill, turn on the regulator and smell the propane, if not it's bad.

Just hooked up new propane tank and grill won't ignite either with starter or matches

Turn gas tank off and disconnect from grill. Check burners to ensure there is no blockage and reconnect tank.Open gas tank slowly, some grills have a sensor to detect leaks and automatically shut off gas. Opening the tank fast can cause this safty device to falsely read the sudden gas flow as a leak. If you still can't light the grill check all fittings for a leak using soapy water.

Grill does noty get hot

try opening the tank very slowly. if you open it too quickly the overfill protection devise in the tank will restrict the gas flow to the burners. hope this helps.

Weak Flames on Propane Grill

It is possible that your burners are clogged. Clean the burner ports with a paperclip (not a toothpick).

KENMORE Gas Grill 141-152210 Kenmore 437 sq. in cooking will only heat to 250 degrees

sudsy, this exact same thing would happen to me every time I changed a tank. I know it's nothing to do with the grill itself. I would have to seat and reseat the regulator hose to the tank a couple of times before it would start heating normally. Your model has 3 burners and I suspect that the flame is real low on each one even on the high setting. Try connecting and disconnecting the tank a couple of times and see if it comes to life. If worse comes to worse you can order a new regulator hose. Part number P3632L. back.
