Http://www.acdirect.com/xcart/images/products/Ruud_UGPL_G22_473_Rev3.pdf This is the manual for your furnace, but if you have anything in the gas supply line than it is probably the supply line itself, assure that a "trap" was installed just prior to the connection to the furnace, any moisture should have been captured there. If this is a propane version give your propane supplier a call and see if you are having a problem with the outside tank. Your gas supply either propane or natural gas should be the least likely source of your problem.

Lights but does not heat up beyond 250degrees


If this is a propane grill, try replacing the regulator and hose going to the tank. When a regulator is failing, it allows gas to pass, but not enough to allow the grill to heat up properly. If this is an older grill. You can also check each burner for blocked gas ports. Just a few blocked ports in a burner can prevent the burner from lighting completely, or from moving from one side of the burner to the other.

When i push igniter it clicks but burners won't come on and i do not even smell gas , i burped it and turned gas tank upside down once, still won't work, grill is only 5 yrs old.


It sound s like the grill's regulator is locked up from "burping" the tank. Hopefully it's not a permanent lockup. To hopefully solve the problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Turn the burner(s) ON for 1 Minute, Then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes reconnect the hose to the tank and open the valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow
motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? Id so, light the remaining burner the way. Did it light and the
flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help).

If the above didn't solve the problem, the Hose/regulator Assembly needs to be replaced. What happened was this, when you turned the tank upside to "burp" the tank. The OPD Valve shot a hot load of gas to the regulator, when you opened it, as you normally would and permanently locked up the grill's regulator. That "burping" trick used to work with the old style tanks. Won't work with the new ones. You can get a new hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store, that sells grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes. Once you install the new one and connect it to the tank. Open the Valve Very, Very Slowly, until it is fully open. Or you may have the same problem again.

Hope this helped to solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

New propane tank. Burner will not light, no gas flow. This was a replacement grill from coleman because they couldn't get the regulator. Starting to get very disgusted with this product.


jcw - It sounds like the regulator is locked up from turning on the gas tank valve. Happens a lot with the new OPD Valves on the grill tanks.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Turn the burner(s) ON for 1 Minute, Then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes reconnect the hose to the tank and open the valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow
motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? Id so, light the remaining burner the way. Did it light and the

Uniflame GBC772W grill is having some problems the burners do not seem to put out much gas to have a good flame on high i cleaned out the little burner holes but it seems like we don't get enough...


More than likely, the problem is with your grills LP Gas Regulator. To test this theory, tune the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until the valve is fully open. Now, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights, now look normal? If so, you solved the problem.

If not remove the burners from the grill and clean the properly, as well as the venturi valve (part of the burner, where the burner orifice enters the burner) on each burner. As spiders like to go into them and build a nest. After a thorough cleaning, reinstall the burners and try again.

If that still did not solve the problem, you need to replace the hose/regulator assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Be sure to take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

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

I can't get my Q to start properly. My start routine is to open the tank valve (20 Lb. with adapter hose) turn the control valve to start and hit the electronic start button. I get an immediate start at...


Yes, it does sound like a regulator problem or clogged burners, which causes delayed ignition.

let's start with the regulator first. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner(s) as you usually do. Does the burner light, all the way around? If so, you solved the problem. Always, turn the tank valve on very, very slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you burner needs to be removed and thoroughly cleaned, including the venturi valve at the open end of the burner. If it still doesn't light as it should, the regulator needs to be replaced. If necessary, you can purchase it directly from Weber.

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

Burners run cool when set on high, when all but one burner is off, the single burner opporates correctly. Grill worked fine before.


There have been issues lately with the way regulators are not drawing gas out of the cylinders properly, and how some of the newer grills are not heating properly.

The issue with them not heating properly goes back (usually, from just what I have observed) to the position of the gas knobs at the time the cylinder valve is opened. On some grills, if the gas knobs are open when the cylinder valve is opened, the burners will not get the maximum amount of gas to all burners, but the performance of one burner is enhanced if the others are turned off, and this sounds like what's got you.

Turn the gas cylinder valve to the off position, and bleed the gas pressure down at the burners. Close the burner valves. Slowly crack open the tank valve, and work it slowly to full open. With the grill lid open, select and light one burner. If it operates properly, light the other burners. If the first burner does not operate properly, repeat the procedure. If you cannot operate your grill like it is supposed to, the issue may fall to the regulator. If the regulator is an older style, it may not actually be fully compatible with some newer cylinders. This seems to be a newer phenomenon, and seems to be found with the type of cylinders that are swapped for a refill. If this is your case, you will need to upgrade to the newer regulator.

Best regards, --W/D--

New propane tank won't ignite


The regulator on the on the hose is either gone bad, or could have got a little bit of dirt in it. You could tap the side of the regulator gently and sometimes this will solve it.
