Hi There,I have Infinity XR20 with regulator Fujikoh, RH8B. Two newly filed gas bottles are connected and opened. Still the indicator stays as red and when water runs, we do not see gas flame and we do not get water heated. Should i change the regulator. This all unit is about 20 months old. Any advice would be appreciated.

Propane appliances usually run on 10-11 inches of water column, this is about 1/2 pound of pressure. If the regulator you have is not rated for delivering gas at that rate, you will need to find one that does. If your regulator is rated for more than the 11 inches, most likely you could have damaged the appliance regulator that came with the heater. Check the propane pressure specified by the heater manufacture against the rated supply of your regulator and see if they match. Make sure the heater is rated for Propane and NOT Natural Gas. Check to see if the gas valve on the appliance is in the operate position and all valves are open. Bleed off the air in the gas line by holding down the pilot switch and keep attempting to light the pilot. It could take you a few minutes. If you hear and smell gas but the unit will still not light, don't chance at getting hurt, call a technician. Look to make sure there are no safety switch that may have triggered off not allowing the gas valve to operate. And make sure there is no obstruction in the heater?s gas valve blocking off the supply of gas. Always exercise caution when it comes to gas and if you are uncomfortable, call a qualified gas technician.

SOURCE: failure to establish flame

I the electrical gas switch valve set to on? If not...

Is there also a gas valve and is it on? If so...

Does the exhaust fan turn freely?
If not then then electrical gas valve will not open the gas valve. I have seen these bearing get loose and then the exhaust tips toward the inside inhibiting the fan from turning. Note: this is not the large blower but a smaller fan for the exhaust fumes.

Is the Vacuum hose from the exhaust to the sensor in good condition and attached at both ends? If not fix hose or connect both ends.

When repairing a unit, many tech will turn off the gas for saftey.

There is really not a lot to go wrong with the heater itself so my first guess would be that the regulator is bad, not letting the proper amount of gas through. You can check it for leaks with a bottlee of soapy water but even if you don't see a leak there is a rubber gasket inside with a pressure spring that is probably bad.

Check lite stays on


On the back side of the refrigerator (behind the access panel) you will see a small brass valve that the copper supply line is connected to. Ensure that the line on the small knob is aligned horizontally. Ensure that you have full tanks of LP gas and that the bottles are open and the regulator is allowing LP gas through. Have someone turn the refrigerator off then back on in gas mode while you stand outside and listen for the gas valve to open (you should hear a hard click sound) and shortly after you should hear the igniter click several times to light the flame. If you do not hear the gas valve open then either your gas valve is bad or the board is bad. If the valve opens but you do not hear the igniter, again you may have a bad board or bad igniter.

Grill is one old and won't light. There is no gas coming from the tank to the grill. Is it the regulator?


age of the grill is irrelevant, i am old and i still can do few thingzzzz...

i assume that your regulator is connected directly to the bottle, then hose to your bottle, then hose is connected to the regulator and other end to the grill?

or it is bottle, hose, regulator, grill?

you need to follow the path regardless, be outside, light breeze is better, no open flame in at least 20m (yards) radius in any direction.

1. close gas bottle/tank
2. disconnect, everything from the bottle
3. crack open tank valve and hear if gas is escaping, close valve back
4. connect regulator to the bottle and again crack open the valve, hear if you have esacping gas, allow actually whiff of gas against your cheek or wetted finger to establish the flow. close the valve
5. connect hose to the regulator (procedure is reversed if first is hose and then regulator), crack open the valve, hear for escaping gas, check against wetted finger and cheek if there is flow, close the valve
6. connect your grill open all valves on it and open valve on the tank/bottle. allow free flow for about 30sec, close valves on grill. vent grill for about two minutes, try to ignite any of the burners. if burner ignite, you solved the problem, if they do not, and you did have flow on all previous stages, close bottle valve, disconnect everything from grill, clean grill valves and nozzles (burner have nozzle inside!), reconnect and vent again, try ignite, if ignition occures, you solve the problem, if not, then you are due for new grill...

if at any stage you do not have gas flow, this meant that this particular piece of equipment is in trouble, this particular piece of equipment need then repair or replacement, under no circumstance pull apart the reducer! NO OPEN FLAME DURING TESTING!!!

LOW HEAT WHEN CONTROLS ARE ON HIGH


gas regulator make sure all burners are off when you connect bottle... the units have a leak sensor and will stop the gas coming out because it thinks you have a leak when you connected the bottle. now try hooking up the bottle again with all the burners closed incl. the side burner and the infa red. It will work o.k. then

Pilot will stay lit but will go out when unit is turned to low


is the pressure regulator right for the type of gas your using...? i had the same problem.i found out that my regulator was for both lp and nat.gas.i also found out there is a small nylon pin underneath the brass cap on top of the regulator.i unscrewed the cap and the fitting was set for lp.and i was using nat. gas.i just pulled the nylon pin out,flipped it around and replaced the cap...works fine now.if your regulator is like mine the nylon pin is maked LP on one end and NAT. on the other.might be worth a try

Sears gas grill


If it was me I would return it. You did the right thing by testing it on another grill. You should not have to accept a new grill that is not working properly.

My Q 120 grill will not produce a high enough flame with hose adapter for 20 pound lp tank , works fine with small tanks. I have had problem for several years. Have replaced adapter hose and regulator.


Often with a big bottle, people turn the gas off and on at the big bottle and leave the grill valve open. That makes the regulator see a low pressure on its output, which is a potential leak indication. It goes into "bypass". Try turning off the tank, turning off the grill valve, and turning on the tank, then waiting 20-ish seconds before turning the grill valve on.

There must be a blockage in the hose and regulator or your large tank may be checking and not allowing the unit to stay lit. Remove the large bottle. Let the gas line equalize for about 30 seconds and then reattach the bottle. Very slowly, open the knob on the large tank and I mean very slowly. Did I say open it slowly. The new OPD propane tanks often have a very touchie excess control valve that won't allow enough gas through if opened too rapidly. Now tray and light the heater. If you still experience the same, get a technician involved so they can inspect the gas pressure.
