SOURCE: King kooker will not burn a blue flame, only a big yellow sooty

You may need to resize the orifice, sounds to me like it is too big. If you have an adjustable orifice try tightening it down a quarter turn at a time till that flame turn pretty. Leave that shutter wide open till you start getting a blue flame. Make sure you have no cob webs blocking the orifice.Blow out and remove all rust from the burner.

SOURCE: low gas flow into burners despite full propane

The regulator has a hole in it. For gods sake be careful when you are playing around with it, because LPG is heavier than air, we had a leak in our cellar and the fire brigade actually carried it out in buckets! NO joke.They just sprayed a mist of dye over the gas and you could actually see it going down. The gas provider may have come and empty your gas bunker if you have one, or open it and let it dissipate in the open air. Even if you only have a cill on the step of 3", sweep it out like its water. Then change the regulator. Be careful, use pleanty of ptfe tape on the ouutlet side of the regulator to eliminate the risk of further leaks.

SOURCE: Gas flow is limited. Flame is very low and not

Your problem lays in one of two area's.
Either your regulator needs adjusted or most likely it is your LP tank

Look in the tank fitting for a small brass ring It will have 2 small slots on either side. This ring can back off over time and then will not allow the male fitting to fully depress the valve in the tank thus reducing your gas flow. I have had this happen on several tanks a bit of caution and a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the brass ring this has always fixed the issue

SOURCE: Propane gas flame is not hot. Do I adjust the air

Here is something to try if it is LP Gas:

Here is a Tip to fix a grill that not getting hot:
1. Turn the gas valve knob off. then close LP tank valve knob.
2. Unscrew the plastic hose coupling knob from the LP tank. You may hear a slight "hissing" sound as pressure is released this is normal.
3.Wait a minute then screw the coupling knob back on to LP Tank.
4.With lid open.slowly open LP tank valve.
5.Relight the grill the proper way by turning gas valve knob to ON position while turning the igniter knob at the same time.
6.After you are sure the grill is lit preheat the grill for 30 minutes.

This was called purging the line or releasing the air out of the line.

Another thing your orifice could be clogged with spiders or dirt. If it is LP gas check to make sure your hose is not kinked.

SOURCE: Have a large mobile propane grill with burner problems

Ok, here is a check list for your most common gas grill lighting problems:

1) Check your tank. Is it empty or nearly empty? The tare weight (T.W.) of your cylinder is stamped on the collar. This is the weight of your empty cylinder, usually around 18 lbs. Weigh it on your bathroom scale2_bing.gif. Propane weighs 4.25 lbs/gal. If it weighs around 20 lbs or less - Refill it. If not, go to #2.

2) Make sure you didn't turn the gas tank valve on too fast. Some gas hoses have a built-in excess flow valve that stops the flow of gas to a trickle if opened too fast. Close the tank valve and let sit for a few minutes. Or just disconnect it and reconnect it. Turn the tank valve very slowly and then try lighting it again. If it doesn't help, go to #3.

3) Is the igniter sparking? Some are battery2_bing.gif powered-check the battery or replace it. If you have a standard push button piezzo igniter or a rotary style2_bing.gif igniter, check for spark. Can you hear or see the spark? It's hard to see the spark in bright daylight. It's easier to view the spark at dusk or dawn. It should spark an "arc" at the burner. If not, adjust it if necessary. The igniter wire may have a short, causing the spark to arc somewhere else along the wire and not at the burner. Replace igniter wire. It's also possible the igniter tip where it sparks has a cracked or broken porcelain portion of the igniter, causing the spark to not arc at the tip where it's supposed to. Replace the igniter piece. If not, go to #4.

4) You may have a rusted, clogged or damaged burner or venturi tube. With a flashlight, check for spider webs, wasp nests or dirt (mud) dauber nests in the opening of the venturi tube where it connects at each gas valve orifice. Clean it out manually or blow it out with air compressor. Make sure the air adjustment opening (on the end of the burner's venturi tube) has not been changed. If it's closed too much, it will be difficult to light and cause lazy yellow flames. If it's not clogged, the burner may just be old and rusted and the burner holes are not allowing very much gas through anymore. It's also possible the burner has rusted so bad, the burner holes have been enlarged, it is falling apart or has cracks along the burner seams. If so, replace the burner(s) immediately. It is unsafe to use. Your local propane co can usually order the parts you need and some will even do the work, if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself. Bring with you the Make, Model and Serial number of the grill, so they can order the correct parts for your specific grill. Also specify whether it's natural gas2_bing.gif or propane.

5) If none of these resolve the issues you are having, it is also possible you have a faulty or defective regulator, which may mean replacement. If the pressure still seems too low and none of the above has helped, and you have a silver/gray regulator; many have an adjustment screw on the top center of the diaphragm. Remove the outer cap and turn the inside screw clockwise in 1/4 turns to increase the pressure until the desired flame size is accomplished. Flames should be as blue as possible, but will burn orange if there is food or drippings on it. Yellow flames are not good, and will soot up everything and not cook as hot as blue flames do. Yellow flames could mean you do not have the right air shutter adjustment, clogged burners, or possibly defective burners, as mentioned above in #4.

6) Also make sure you have the hose connection tightened snugly to the propane tank valve to ensure the inner valve seat is fully depressed allowing gas to exit fully without any restriction. The black plastic female fitting should be hand tightened only. Older versions that use a left-hand male brass POL valve, requires a 7/8 open end wrench or adjustable wrench to tighten.

Hope this helps! Good luck in your trouble shooting! Douglas

Fridge worked fine on gas last night but won't today.. Gas is at cook top


Gas refrigerators work off a small flame. That flame heats a part some call a thermocouple. Over time that part goes bad. Also Propane produces a carbon like soot. It sometimes blocks the small hole the gas flows through. May just need cleaned near the flame area.

RM2652 cools great on gas and 110 but will only cycle on and off in 110 mode. Once gas is selected, it will never cycle off.


These dual service refrigerators are somewhat tricky. Did you check the gas system for any carbon buildup around the flame/burner area. If the flame is not the proper size it will not get cold enough to shut off. Clean all carbon/dirt from the flame area and check again. Propane causes deposits after a while.

Recently purchased a whirlpool gas range from Lowes "return,discounted aisle" I asked had it been converted to propane and they said yes it had. Wife is overly concerned how do you know they can...


Hello,

Their is no marking or anything easy to determine that.....however natural gas is lower pressure that propane so if you were using propane and it was set to natural ALL the flames would be huge since it would be operating on the higher pressure while it was set for the lower pressure which would result in a flame thrower from each burner and soot so if the flames are pretty normal size despite the small adjustment for the simmer i believe its set to propane.

The oven flame comes into the oven around the oven bake cover and all burners and broiler have a perfect flame. this is a brand new oven


Are you on natural gas or propane? If you are on propane did you have it converted form natural gas. Due to the difference in orface size you will be getting more gas flow then needed. If it was converted you need to contact the store and advise them it has a possible gas valve problem.

Low flame


This problem most likely is with your regulator. if you decide to replace it please make sure you get the right size replacement. Some salespeople dont know the difference there are four common sizes from class 1 to class 4. If you take the old one with you make sure you match the numbers up with a new one.

Hope this helps You
