The front of the regulator should twist off with a little effort then exposing the purge diaphram, check your dry cracking and deteireation, you shoud be able to dismantle the reg and assmeble easily, and when you do get it open lube the piston and diaphram with silicone grease, but not the side you breath from just the mechnical side.

Not staying lit.


Hi Matt
Check your regulator to make sure it is getting the gas needed, sometime a sharp rap or two on the regulator will free up the needle and diaphram or your regulator may be adjustable.
If that does not work check your flow from the burners it'self...could be plugged up gas holes.

Gas is barely flowing-used to hear hiss before I lit. Tried replacing pressure valve and got a new tank of gas. Also disassembled manifold and cleaned out all burners.


I had the same problem years ago with an old charbroil and ended up fixing by replacing the threaded female gas connector on the regulator with one of the old style male inside threaded type. This is the connector that connects the hose/regulator to the propane tank.

The regulator is free flowing the opupus is also free flowing . They are Magnum blizzard by sherwood


Your regulator requires servicing as this problem could be caused by either excessive pressure in the LP line to your Reg or the valve in the reg has become defective.

My reg simply free flows when connected to the tank. Its the first time it has ever done this. Is this an easy fix, or should I start to worry? the thing is this reg is at least 10 years old so I don't...


Turn the regulator mouthpiece down
Blow air back into regulator
Make sure the sensitivity slide is toward the edge of the regulator
Turn the gas on quickly when the rig is mounted. Turning on slowly results in free flow

Low flame


Next time you use the grill turn the gas on slowly. For some unknown reason when turned on quickly the regulator reduces the gas flow.
Another problem with some gas fittings is an auto shutoff if detects the slightest leak. Sometimes the shutoff is not 100% and allows a small amount of gas causing the weak flame.

I need to know how to install a fuel pressure regulator on a 98 GMC K3500 4x4


The fuel pressure regulator is located under the upper intake manifold or plenum. This large aluminum casting must be removed for access.I assume this is a 454 c.i.d.old body style pick up. 2000 was a split year for GM. Both old and new body styles.

I need a blue print on how a sloan urinal flush valve works and how the water flowes through it. if posable exactly how it works.


SLOAN FLUSH VALVES ARE SIMPLE. IT DEPENDES ON THE PROBLEM. IF THE VALVE KEPS RUNNING AFTER IT IS FLUSHED THE RUBBER DIAPHRAM IS DIRTY OR OLD AND THE RUBBER DIAPHRAM IS GETTING HARD. AND STICKING. THE VALVE WORKS ON A VACUME TO CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM TO STOP THE FLUSH PROCESS. WHEN YOU PULL ON THE FLUSH HANDLE YOU BREAK THE VACUME THAT FORM ON THE TOP OF THE DIAPHRAM WHICH ALLOWS THE WATER TO FLOW AS THE WATER FLOWS IT IS ALSO STARTING TO PULL A VACUME IN THE TOP OF THE DIAPHRAM TO CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM AND STOP THE FLUSH.
AS THE DIAPHRAM GET OLD AND WORN IT GETS HARD AND DOES NOT MOVE AS FREELY AND STICKS OPEN AND WON'T LET THE VACUME CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM AND THE URINAL WILL CONTINUE TO FLUSH. HOPE THIS ANSWERED YOU QUESTION
