Grill problem with belling xuo70g mk2 Flames


if there are flames inside the control panel this is usually indicative of a crooked burner causing the gas to swirl as it flows from the valve orifice into the burner venturi tube. By the time there is enough gas to ignite and be seen there will be damage to the valves and the gaskets so there will be several gas leaks adding the the problem.

You are going to have to remove the burners and make sure they are properly installed and then remove the control panel to access the manifold and all the control valves. Pressurize the manifold and pour soapy water throughout to locate the bubbles that denote leaks.

Landmann 12376 ignition


Firstly, check the distance between ignite and burner, the spark must contact with the hole of burner.
secondly, turn on the control at maximum level then keep and push control knob try to Push-button Piezo ignition several times.
Finally, If you do not find out any trouble with gas supply, connection and assembly, do the same with step 2 however, Instead of push the button use the paper or wood with flame on to ignite for side burner for the first times, after that keep it running for few minute to heat burner, then turn off then use Push-button Piezo ignition to ignite.

With my experience it can work 100% after you heat the burner, if not call me. ^^

The back burner doesnt consistently light up.


If the flame doesn't go completely around the burner, ther is an obstruction at the outlet holes. Make sure all outlet are clear of dirt, rust,or any material. Even water will block the outlets.

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.

Propane grill wont ignite


Well, it sounds like your grill is experiencing vapor lock. Vapor lock is basically air caught in the gas line and there is a relatively easy method to fix this. I want you to try this method and tell me what you get, ok? First, open the tank's valve, then open the burner valve and light the grill. Immediately after you see a blue flame, turn off the tank's valve, count to five and then close the burner valve. Repeat this procedure three times, the problem should clear itself.

If you are still experiencing problems, the regulator may be faulty and needs to be tested next, so go get a new regulator from your Lowe's and run the procedure again. If after all this, you are still experiencing the problem, let me know here. Good luck!

Low flame on 3 main burners. model GBC730W


Mike, I had this problem with my grill once or twice. Like most of us grilling men we turn the grill off at the tank trying to be safe. Sometimes, like in my case, I do not turn the nobs back to the off position. When returning to the grill the next day or week the first thing we do is turn the gas on leaving the nobs on, then lighting. Every time I do this my flame never gets full or does not reach full temp. To resolve this: turn everything off including the nobs, then turn the gas on, wait a minute or two. Turn the nobs to full and ignite. It should be at full flame then, adjust from there. I hope this is helpfull.

Lighting Problem/2 year-Old Ducane Grill


Do you have enough gas pressure coming out of the regulator and gas valve? You'll need a pressure guage for this.

If yes, try taking out the burners and cleaning them with a wire brush, especially the flame spreading sections.
