Question about Grilling

1 Answer

My majestic propane fireplace (RDV4136RP) is 4 years old and we cannot get this problem resolved. When igniting, it sometimes is delayed and then comes on with a loud boom. Has been serviced numerous times for improper alignment of burner injector which they say is causing the delayed ignition and excessive soot. We are to the point where we are afraid to use it because we don't know when the "boom" will happen. The place where we bought it has been useless. They come, do some adjustments and then it is fine for a while and then it starts again. We can't seem to find a pattern with this - sometimes it doesn't do it for a while and then it does it every time for a few days. I just want to find someone who can rectify this problem permanently.

Do you have enough gas pressure coming out of the regulator and gas valve? You'll need a pressure guage for this.

If yes, try taking out the burners and cleaning them with a wire brush, especially the flame spreading sections.

SOURCE: 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.

I need to replace the pilot assembly. Are they all interchangeable


Yes and no. The idea is the same, but the way they are mounted can be different, and the sizes of the screw fittings at the end can be different.

You can not do this job yourself anyway. All gas repairs have to done by a suitably qualified gas fitter. Why? Booom!

Majestic gas fireplace mmodel majestic fireplace 36CDVXTRN will not stay lite after 20 minutes.


If you are able to , open the burner box , the igniter has a thermocouple ( might look like a thick wire that would be in the flame if it were on). If it gets corroded or junked up it will not register the flames presence and will shut off the gas). Take an emory cloth and polish it. Hope it helps.

My Majestic gas fireplace pilot stays lit. But the burner does not light when heat is called for.


Check a safety device called thermopile which the two wires connected to the unit needs to be around 500mV to open gas. This part is between 35-50$ If that is not the problem, you may need to replace unit gas valve.

Napoleon Fireplace propane Pilot won't light main burner even though gas flows in?


  • I'm going to assume your fireplace has a pilot light.
  • Follow the little holes in the burner that lead to the pilot light.
  • Make sure the pilot flame is pointing directly at the closest burner hole. (adjust if necessary).
  • Often, you will need to sprinkle a layer of "glowing embers" in this area. The embers will help the gas travel to the pilot light and ignite.
  • Always start your propane appliance on "High" never "Low". Cold propane likes to drop to the bottom of the firebox and accumulate until it reaches the pilot (this is called delayed ignition). Keeping it on "high" will help the fuel travel over to the pilot without buildup.

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 have a propane Majestic heating unit which when it lites -- it really thumps like a delayed ignition. Any suggestions?


Hi, that is exactly what is going on, delayed ignition, that is what we call it. Mainly caused by soot build up at orfice and in burners. Propane units are notorious for this. You will need to clean this unit up very good.Use a dust mask if it is bad.This will take care of the problem, I have cleaned many and know how nasty it can get. Once they get just a small amount of carbon/soot on a part, it builds up fast causing this and many other problems.Sometimes, if there is a leak, or if the unit is supplied by a larger tank, low propane pressures will cause soot to build up. I hope this will help you as I am sure this is the solution. Keep me posted if you can. Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
