Question about Brinkmann Charmglow Stainless Steel LP Drop-In 4-Burner Grill 810-6805-0 (LP)

1 Answer

Flame has become very yellow and lazy. I installed a new regulator, but didn't help.

At maximum heat, flame comes out of mesh enclosure around burner and starts turning red, but am not getting very much heat out of heater.

SOURCE: Grill is not getting to maximum heating potential.

Here's the problem and solution. The LP tank has what's called an OPD Valve. It prevents overfilling. However, if you turn the tank valve ON as you would normally do, it shoots high pressure to the grill's regulator and locks it up.

Solution: Turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Now, turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow), until the valve is fully open. Turn ON and light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. Repeat that procedure with the remaining burners. Have the flames returned to a normal height? If so, you solved the problem. If not, repeat the procedure again, but this time leave the hose disconnected for 10 minutes. If both attempts fail, you will need to replace the grills hose and regulator, as the regular is locked an won't release itself. You can find the hose/regulator assembly at any home improvement store or hardware store.

Just remember to always turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY, SLOWLY,

Happy Grilling!!

SOURCE: Low flame

Solution #1 is correct. If your regulator is / was good, then you would most likely have a leak in a line or fitting - and the regulator has properly restricted or stopped gas flow as it's designed to do for obvious safety.

However a very common leak is the main plastic tank coupling which renders the whole regulator and hose assembly useless.

Quick fix, go to Wal-Mart and buy a $20 replacement regulator which comes pre-fitted with hoses and couplings. Get the dual or single hose depending on whether you have a side-burner or not.

Voila! Your good to go a few more years.

Pilot flame seems too high. How can I adjust and how tall should flame be?

The pilot flame should be a firm blue color impinging directly on the thermocouple enough to turn it red hot after a few minutes. Generally, the pilot flame need not go past the thermocouple more than a 1/4 - 3/8" and should not be a lazy yellow color. As far as adjustment to the pilot flame, it depends on the heater brand you have. Look at the gas control for a small adjustment screw near where the silver pilot tubing connects from it (it connects to the pilot assembly on the other end). Adjusting it counter-clockwise will lower the flame size, if necessary. If the pilot has a lazy yellow flame, the pilot orifice may just be dirty. With the pilot flame off, use a can of compressed air (with attached straw) to blow out any debris/dust from inside the pilot assemble where the orifice is. Good luck.

I see to have too much gas pressure after converting my Neptune dryer from natural gas to LP

you should not try to adjust the flame. LP burns more yellow that NG. The gas pressure automatically regulates the airflow based on the dynamic pressure that goes through the burner chamber. If your flame is roaring and pushing forward, everything is Okay, if it is a "Lazy" and falling flame, you have a blockage of the airflow - venting system

Unit takes a long time to heat up. Lazy flame. Not much of a difference between high and low setting

iddoog - You either have a problem with the venturi valves on the burners, that need to be cleaned or you have a partially locked up gas regulator.

If it's the regulator 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 valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn to HIGH. Has the
flame improved? Does it look correct for the HIGHEST setting? In so, light the remaining
burners the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the
problem. Remember to ALWAYS Open the gas tank valve very, very slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem and you removed the burners and cleaned them and their venturi valves, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. They cost about $30.00 & you get one at any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know & Happy Grilling!!

Pilot turns on but when I switch to turn it on,

When you light the pilot, are you holding it down for 30-60 seconds. When you release the pilot button, does the pilot flame stay lit? Or does it only go out when you turn the knob to on position. Make sure the pilot flame is heating the end of the thermocouple and that it's a strong blue flame, not a lazy yellow pilot flame. Make sure the tip of the thermocouple is not burn't off, which usually happens with lazy yellow pilot flames. Replace thermocouple is nothing else works.
