SOURCE: No Gas in Heating Element

If you are using the heater at temperatures below 40 degrees, ther will not be enough gas vapor to run the heater. If the temperature is above 40, look for an obstruction in the gas piping or gas valve itself. There is a small screen on the inlet side of the gas valve that you can inspect if you remove the inlet hose. Make sure you reinstall the hose using a teflon base pipe sealant on the threads.

Hi

First you need to change the plug with a new one with the same heat range(too long time).Priming the engine few times(put some gas in the cilinder through the plug hole)and start the engine until it runs constantly.

Check the oil level & try again to start many times until it became loose because the engine became stock up for long time not use.

the office that is open on the bottom of the burner sound like a spider has taken home to.. the hole.... This happened to mine. a small pipe cleaner or wire will break it up...try that. also did you feel the top of the tank regulator and see if it has froze. try turning the tank upside down and turn the unit on.... this may also help by forcing the spider debris out.

Bad propane gas bottle - is it possible to get bad gas in new propane bottles?


The supplier's bulk propane tank either is not equipped with a moisture filter in the discharge line or the filter is ineffective.

Gas is on can hear ignition. Doesn't light. May not have gas to heater. Air in line?


Check also to see if the valve on the gas valve itself is in the "ON" position. Is it on or off?
If it is on, then you may in fact have air in the gas line that needs to be purged.
BE CAREFUL WHEN PERFORMING THESE STEPS!! ESPECIALLY IF PROPANE GAS - LPG!!!!!!
Have a large piece of cardboard or the front cover/door of your heater will suffice.
If solid pipe to heater, then there is a union, if you have flexible gas line to heater then you have a flare nut.
With NO flames or sparks even close - NO SMOKING !!!Carefully & slowly loosen either the union or the flare nut with gas valve open. You will hear hissing sound. Leave open for about 30 seconds, until you smell the gas. Carefully & slowly tighten either the union or the flare. Take the cardboard or door, and fan towards the heater to push away and fan away any gas fumes. Do this for about a minute or so. Very Important you do this, again especially if Propane. Propane is a very heavy gas & it will linger in a "Puddle", unseen puddle near the heater. If you did not fan away these fumes, when the heater starts to ignite - .... not so pretty.
Anyway, if you had air in line, heater should fire. If it didn't try above steps one more time. If it still does not fire, possible bad gas valve.

If you're using a 20lb propane tank (Gas Grill Tank), that may be the problem. Turn off the propane tank at the tank valve and disconnect it from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the heater hose to the tank. Turn the propane tank valve on very,very slowly until it's all the way open. Try lighting your heater now. If the pilot flame height returned to normal, that was the problem.

FYI - The Thermocouple has nothing to do with the length of the pilot flame. It's a safety feature that stops the gas if the pilot flame goes out for any reason.

Hope that solves your problem. Please let me know.

i suggest you change thermocouple on heater it is the pilot control, firstly i would find where it attach's to valve and make sure it is screwed into valve properly (do not over tighten). If the pilot still doesn't go change the thermopile and if that don't work change the valve, but it most likely the thermocouple

It will probably be one of two issues. Either the waterflow sensor is not working correctly or the propane valve connected to to control knob is stuck shut. The water flow sensor is located on the side of the copper element (grey box) check that it spins easily. The propane valve is attached to the control knob by a long metal wire and should turn freely as you turn the control knob to warm

How do i light this gas grill, it is a charbroil quantum....it was borrowed from our friend, who is now not picking up the phone...


Checklist:
1-Make sure propane tank has propane in it.
2-Turn regulator (valve attached to propane tank) on.
3-Turn burner dials on, usually there is a "light" or "ignite" position to let the most gas flow to start. If there isn't, just turn it/them to high.
4-Listen for the hissing, if you hear some hissing from the grill, it has gas flow.
5-Turn the dials back off and give 3-5 minutes for gas to clear.
6-Turn dials back on and hit the igniter button.
That should do it! :)

If you have a piezo ignition, then all you will hear is one click when you turn the knob. If I am guessing correctly, when you push in the knob and turn it, the gas flows to the pilot assembly, when you turn the knob far enough it will clilck and that sends the spark to the pilot assembly to light the pilot. Try turning the knob slowly before you get to the click, that will allow more gas to flow to the pilot. If this does not work, then you may have a blockage in the pilot.
