Gas Flow Problem

Normal high flame height on the ignition burner. When other burners are turned on, all flame levels decrease as burners are added. Have also swapped out tanks through Rhino swap system and cleaned all four burners.

    I have a 4 burner system, the flame never really gets high. When I turn on the third and fourth burner it takes away from the first 2. I have a brand new rhino tank that was pre purged, I have shaken the tank as was advised, I purchased a new regulator, reemed out the lines for spider webs and pulled the burners and did the same with them. I was wondering if I were to cap the side burner would that help and maybe this model is a piece of garbage and the gas valves are faulty.

Replace the regulator and hose assembly that screws onto the propane bottle. I had the same problem on two patio heaters and my 4 burner grill. You can get regulators and hose at Home Depot, Lowes, Northern, probably Meijers, etc. Check the fitting on the end of the hose for the correct gender, male or female, size, and hose length. You can get a fitting in the plumbing department to change the gender.

I can all but give you money that this will fix it.

Mike, your gas regulator is locked up. To solve the problem, do the following.

1. Turn the 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) until the valve is fully open.

4. Light on burner and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the other
burner the exact same way. Do both flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.

In the future, always remember to turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem. You will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can pick one up from any hardware store or home center that sells gas grills & accessories for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

The problem is more than likely, the new tank. More specifically, the way you opened the ODP tank valve. In most cases, it is solvable,

1. Turn the 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). Once the valve is fully open
light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all
the burners light and the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It's easy to do and you can pickup one at any hardware store or home center that sells gas grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Just purchased new Brinkman 5 burner Pro series. Worked fine when I tested it but now the main burner is the only one that will ignite and it won't stay on. The side burner works great.


First, check the gas line hose from the tank to the grill. Look for kinks or twisting that would restrict the flow of gas to the burners. If you find any, turn the gas tank valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and straighten the hose, before reconnecting it to the tank. Then open the gas valve Very, Very Slowly, until it's fully open.

If you didn't find any kinks or twist, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF, Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
2. Turn on any pair of burners to High for io minute and then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes has elapsed, reconnect the hose to the tank.
4. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until it's fully open.
5. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look
correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look correct?
If so, you solved the problem!

Hope this helped you . Please let me know and Happy Grilling.

My Coleman Seirra grill will not get to a temp greater than 300 degrees, even on high. Please advise. Thank you.


Does the flame height, when turned to HIGH on the burners, appear to be lower than normal? If so, it's one of two things:

1. You are low or about ready to run out of gas in the tank. Check gas level in tank.

2. The grill's regulated is partially locked up. Turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the grill first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so. light the remaining burners the same way. Do ALL of the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If none of the above solved the problem and (hint) the burners are clean and not clogged. You need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you, just for comparison purposes.

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

Don't worry, you'll be grilling in no time, if you follow these instructions:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.

2. Disconnect the grill's hose from the propane tank and wait 5 minutes.

3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank's gas valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow).

Once the valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burner and turn it to HIGH. Do both flame heights look normal?
If so, you solve the problem! Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

We just used the grill the other night went out to cook tonight will not ignite ....I can hear the gas so that is not it ...any suggestions? I am newby at all this but have been doing fine .....


Are you saying the ignitor won't light the burner(s), but you can hear gas going thru the burners?
If that's the case, try match lighting the burners. That's a good way to find out if you are really getting enough gas for combustion.

If after match lighting it, you find that burner flames remain low, even when they're turned to High. Here's what you need to do:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion,
slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open, try lighting the burner farthest away from the tank first and turn
it to High. Did the burner light and the flame height looks normal? If so, light the remaining
burner(s) the same way. Do all the flame heights look normal? If so, you solved the problem.

Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Pleas let me know and Happy Grilling, Newby!!

When I turn on the gas and ignite, some of the burners are huming. Why?


Are they humming ot does it sound like a jet engine? If it sounds like a jet engine, the venturi valves on those burners my be clogged and need cleaning. You will have to remove the burners to do this. The Venturi Valves are on each side of the burner on the open end of the burner. They will look like slots.

If in fact they are humming. Turn all the burners OFF and the turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank an open the tnk valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and tunr it to high. Does the flame height look normal. If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look normal and has the humming stopped? If so, you solved the "humming" problem. If not, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. They are not expensive and you can find one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes. Afte you replace the hose/regulator assembly, open the tank valve as I described above.

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

Full tank, very low flow/flame, how do I clean venturi, if this is the problem. Unable tp remove V-shaped tent over burners


I suspect that your problem is related to the grill's regulator. But, there is a solution. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and the burners to high for one minute, then turn them OFF. Also, disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes, After 5 minutes, reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, turn ON and light the burner farthest from the tank, first. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look normal? If so, you solved the problem.

If it didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take your old one with you, for comparison purposes.

The V-shaped Tent (also called a Flame Tamer) should just lift up and out. According to your Owners Manual, they are not attached in any way, They just sit there, Once they are out of the way, you can access and remove the burners for cleaning. The Venturi is part of the burner, where it fits over the burner orifice. It will have a slotted opening. It mixes the gas to air, so that you get an even, clean burning flame. Spiders love to build nest in them. An old toothbrush works well in cleaning the Venturi's .

Hope all this info was of some help to you and will get you back grilling real soon. Please let me know. Thanks.

Flame height is very low when burners are on high and grill temperatuture does not excede 400 degrees


It is most likely the regulator especially if all the burners are at the same height. This is a common problem. If you grill is under a year old go into sears and they should be able to replace it for free. (the regulator is the round metal piece that conects to your propane tank.
