Sounds like a gas regulator problem. But, somewhat unusual, as most people complain of low flames. In any event, you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly. They run about $30.00 and can be found at any hardware store or home center, that sell gas grills and accessories.

As a safety measure, after turning off the gas tank, check each burner for blowout or rust through..

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Here's the problem and the solution. The new regulator you just installed, locked up when you turned ON new tank. This oocurs quite frequently with the fairly new OPD equipped grill tanks.

Solution:

1. Turn the gas tank's 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 and turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners
the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with
a little help). Remember to ALWAYS open the tank valve very, very, slowly.

Happy Grilling!!

I just bought a new roadtrip grill. I put it together, put a new tank in. The flame is barely visible. Is there an easy way to fix this?


Layla, it's a a common problem and one that's easy to fix. Turn OFF the tank valve and if you're using a 20 lb LP Gas Grill Tank, disconnect the hose from the tank If you're using an insert-able gas tank remove it from the grill. In either case, leave the gas disconnected for 5 minutes, Then reattach the hose or reinsert the tan and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY Slowly (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner and turn the flame to the highest setting. Does the flame height now, look correct? If so, light any remaining burners the same way and check their flame height. If they all look correct, you've solved the problem. If not, the gas regulator/hose assembly (if you're using the 20 lb tank) needs to be replaced. If you're using the insert-able canister, just the regulator needs to be replaced. Either way, you're fortunate that your grill is new and still under warranty.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks

The gas flow cannot be raised and a slight breeze puts out the fl


The new gas grills have a safety device built into the gas hose that can cause this problem until you get familiar with it. The flame on a gas grill should be blue. If you have a yellow flame it could be caused by a couple of different problems. First of all the burner might be worn out. If you have an older grill then you should inspect the burner to make sure that there are no cracks or holes and that all the burner holes are the same size. If you have a newer grill or burner, or your burner appears to be fine then the problem might be with the regulator. The regulator is a round metal object near the connector to your gas supply. Sometimes regulators get stuck. This can reduce the gas flow, make a yellow flame and keep your grill from getting hot. To solve a stuck regulator, turn off the fuel supply to your grill. Disconnect the main connector and open the grills control value. This will eliminate any pressure on the regulator. Sometimes this will reset the regulator, but sometimes they stay stuck. Take a small hard object like the handle of a screwdriver and give the regulator a gentle tap. Now you can reconnect everything and see how your grill works now. If you still have a yellow flame your propane tank might be low, the regulator may need replacing or you could have a blockage in the venturi tubes. So check your fuel level by pouring hot, not boiling water down the side of the tank. Feel along the side where you poured the water. The propane level is where the tank feels cold. If you have plenty of fuel, locate the venturi tubes. The venturi tubes are located along fuel lines right behind the control valves. These allow air to mix with the fuel before reaching the burners so they have a small open space. If that space is blocked it will restrict the fuel flow to the burner. Make sure it is clear of obstruction. If you have done all this and still have a yellow flame you may need to look at replacing

Grill with a full tank of gas will not get hot


Low flame, low temperature, yellow flame: This has become the biggest problem with many grills these days and it's almost always because of the regulator (the funny UFO shaped thing on the gas hose). Regulators seem to be stickier these days and when they stick you don't get enough gas to generate a good grilling temperature. To get your regulator unstuck you need to release the pressure on it. Follow these steps exactly:
  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally
To keep the regulator from sticking again make sure that you turn off the control valves first, then turn off the tank valve. Always open your tank valve slowly. If this doesn't work give it a second try. If you still have low flame then you probably have a faulty regulator that will need to be replaced.

I don't believe that retail stores carry replacement parts for these portable grills. You might be able to get them directly from the manufacturer, but you will probably have to replace the grill if the ceramic plate is broken.

Propane grill


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

Flame not hot


If the propane tank is full, it could be the pressure regulator. Some regulators have an adjustment screw on the top.
If it's REALLY cold outside, the propane may not be evaporating fast enough to keep the pressure up. Also on a cold or windy day, heat is drawn away from the grill very quickly, and it may be difficult to keep the temperature up inside.

Good luck!
(And Happy Grilling!)
