A brand new propane tank won't work

Two new full propane tanks were tried but did not work. The old propane tank still works on the same grill. The new propane tanks were rhino tanks. Also I tried a third new one today of a different make and it did not work either. The only one which currently works is Manchester propane tank. Why could it be?

I had this problem when I turned on the burners before I turned on the tank, to fix it I had to turn everything off. Then turn the tank on and wait about a minute for pressure to build in the lines then turn on the burners. Hope this helps

SOURCE: weber grill three burner. New tank of propane but

The new style2_bing.gif OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem
IF not you might want to remove the cap (white) on your regulator and try slowly adjusting the regulator, make small adjustments and try the BBQ My Weber if I set the front and back burners to MED I get right at 350 degrees in 60 degree outdoor temps. Adjusting the regulator will take some time to get it right but If it is not your tank it is most likely your regulator out of adjustment

SOURCE: Master forge grill won't light with 2nd propane

Here's the problem and how to solve it. When you opened the valve on the tank, you did it as you normally would. However, the new OPD Valve tanks will often shoot a heavy load of gas to the regulator and lock it up.

To hopefully 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.
Then light the burner farthest for the tank first. Did the burner light and does the flame height
look correct? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. Do all the flame heights look
correct? If so, you solve the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very
Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the Grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can pick one up at any hardware store or home center that sell 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 let me know and Happy grilling!!

Grill won't start


if your sure the propane tank is full, and the valve is open, (counter clockwise, and the control knob is on? you should not only smell it after 20 seconds, but if you put your ear near the grill you should hear a sound like air leaking.If you hear nothing and smell nothing, good chance there is a blockage in the line, or the burner holes are filled with drippings. First off, get a wire brush and scrub the burners where you see the small holes that the flame normally comes out of, then try the grill again, if still nothing (and your 100% sure the tank is full, the tank is on, and the control knob is on high) you may need to start taking apart the grill, looking for a blockage, many times its below the control knob where you will see an adjustable screen, spider webs and such will get in there and block the flow. Remember to not do any of that with the tank on the grill, remove the tank first.;

Won't light! New tank, regulator is positioned right. It's brand new! Ignitors work! Can smell propane when i turn the tank on....Can't get it to light. It's set up for propane.. Can't...


Sheldon, this happens a lot, but it's easy to solve.

1. Turn the gas tank's valve OFF & disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes & reconnect the hose to the tank.
3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow).
4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn to HIGH.
Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners
one at a time the exact same way. Do all the flame heights look correct? if so, you solved
the problem (with a little help). Just remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grills Hose/Regulator Assembly as it is permanently locked up. You can pick one up for about $30.00 from any hardware store or home center that sells grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

I hope the helped you and Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a brand new , full tank of propane. I cannot get the propane from the tank to the burners. I am not sure if Ihave a bad hose and regulator or a bad valve that will nto allow the propane to flow...


Julian, let's get this corrected for your 4th of July Cookout.

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).

4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first & turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and the fa,e height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner exactly
the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.
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, as the regulator is locked up. You can pick one up from any home center or hardware store that sell grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem, Please let me know and 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
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!!
