If the valve is stuck and wont budge, the only real solution is to have is replaced. Unfortunitly, Weber does not sell the valves separately and you would have to replace the entire manifold. Before going out to buy the parts, call Weber to see if your still under any warranty, even if your not they still sometimes send parts at no charge.

I have 3 charmglow heaters. I can get the pilots to light but when I try to turn the knobs to high or low they go out. Doesn't seem like gas is coming out at that point. Why?

there should be a thermocouple protruding into your pilot flame. This device, when hot, produces an electrical voltage that tells the gas valve that it is safe to turn on the gas. The thermocouple can be bad or frequently the small tube or wire connection from the thermocouple to the gas valve gets corroded and doesn't make connection. Try cleaning this connection first. It may be just screw terminal connections or a hexnut. loosen the screws or hexnut and clean ... reconnect and test. If it does not, pick up and install a new thermocouple.

Master forge l3218 Low Heat Issue

Had the same issue with the three burner model, the grill wouldnt heat as quickly as it should. Thought it was an issue with the regulator but decided to work our way from the burners to the tank to eliminate possible causes. we got to the valves were you select the heatnig level and discovered that sugar ants had gotten into there somehow and died, enough of them to block the valve without completely closing it. to solve we removed the valves, disassembled them and ran a pipe cleaner through them to clean any buildup away. after doing this for ll three and reassembling the parts and putting them back onto the grill it works perfectly and heats up like it was brand new.

Gas grill wont lite manuallly

Do you mean it won't match light or the ignitor won't spark and light the burners? Or both?

If it won't match light or the ignitor sparks, but the burners don't light, that means you're not getting gas to the burners.

Check to the tank valve and make sure it's turned ON. Also, make sure that there's gas in the tank.
If both of those check out as OK, turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 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, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and the flame height looks correct? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. Now, are they all lit and the flames heights look correct? If so, you solve the problem. Just remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if the burners failed to light. Remove and clean all the burners, as well as the venturi valve on the open of each burner. Spiders like to build nest in the venturi valves.

if cleaning the burners did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find it in any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories, for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please be kind enough to let me know. Thanks and Happy grilling!!

Low flame - doesn't heat enough

Hi, Patty. The low burner flame on a natural gas grill an be caused by several things.

1. The gas line shutoff valve is not fully open.
2. The burners are clogged and need to be removed and properly cleaned
3. The venturi valve(s), which has spider screens may be clogged.

The things listed above are the top 3 reasons for the low burner flame problem on a Natural Gas Grill.

To help you accomplish the cleaning of the burners and the venturi valves, I have included a link to your Owners Manual, that you can download & print for future reference. It has detailed instructions and diagrams in the Maintenance section, that will show you how to accomplish this.

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

When I start the grill, all burners are low and will not heat more than 200 degrees. i have replaced all 3 burners and still have the problem any answers?

Hello, Turn your gas tank valve off. Loosen and remove the regulator from the tank. Wait 15 or more minutes. Replace the regulator securely in the tank valve. Ensure ALL the burner valves are off. SLOWLY, I say again SLOWLY turn on the tank valve 1/2 turn. Try the grill again. There is a safety feature in the regulator that senses a gas leak; if the valve is turned on to quickly and to much pressure or gas flow is detected it will close down and the grill will not heat up as normal.

If you find this helpful please vote yes. Thank You!

Propane tank knob is stuck

same problem as other posted. If you turn on the propane bottle valve too quickly, it activates the safety valve and shuts it off until you get it turned on with a device your dealer (mine was Amerigas) puts his tool in it to reset it. DON't turn these valves open fast in the futuere. A nail inserted and a strike with hammer may fix it, but I recommend your gas dealer.

Gas grill

Probably 1 of 3 things:
Check your LP tank valve at an LP filling station. Make sure both valve and tank are in working order.
Next check for webs or cocoons up around where knob valves go into burners. You may have to remove burners to see into back of valves. Then swab orifice holes with a torch tip cleaner.
Third, a Menards , LP outfitter/station, or grill shop should have a universal replacement rubber gas line and "regulator"(possibly plugged or stuck shut). Sometimes you end up with cheap/bad regulator out of the factory.
Good luck and hope one these helps or does the trick.

Changing propane tank

Ok on the propane tank valve there will be a black assy. connected to the output side of the valve, if this is the black knob you are talking about it might be stuck if this is the case you might take a pair of slip joint pliers and try taking it loose that way looking at the knob from the front with the tank behind you it will turn counter clokwise to loosen it.

Hope this helps Ya
please rate me.
