New bbq won't light

I just bought a brand new patio chef lower end bbq, spent 2 hrs assembling it following the directions EXACTLY and it will not light. I connected a new, full propane tank, turn the knob fully on, put the burner on high, and press the igniter button. nothing happens. I tried lighting it with a match but no go. I smell the gas, so that's coming through but I can't figure out why it won't light. help!

Try turning the gas down a little while you use a match?

SOURCE: no gas getting to bbq

I switched to the new style 20# tank with the new turn-on knob.  I couldn't get enough gas pressure to the BBQ burners for all three burners to light or to keep a strong flame on even one burner.  The new style tanks have a safety valve on the inside of the tank that shuts the gas off if you turn the knob on too fast because the safety valve thinks there is leak.  Shut everything off and then try turning the knob on real slow, especially at first, before turning it all the way on.  If that doesn't work (it didn't for me), then replace the large plastic connection valve knob (female end) that attaches the regulator to the tank.  Mine was for the old style tank and was black (low pressure).  I went to a propane company and had them replace it with a green knob (higher pressure).  Took it home and WALA!  Everything works fine now.  But it was very frustrating trying to figure why I couldn't get any gas to the burners after buying a brand new tank.  I hope this helps solve your problems.

SOURCE: Can't light the bbq

You make have turned the propane tank valve on too fast. Close the valve, disconnect it, reconnect it and very slowly turn the tank valve back on. That should solve your problem.

SOURCE: Hi, I am problems with my Cadac Carri Chef bbq.

I brought a Cadac grill BBQ about 2 years ago. We used it on the weekend and found that it wasn't getting hot. to our surprise it wasn't burning properly. there was no blue flame just a flame which made all the nuder neath turn to soot and very black. We took it apart and found that where the cylinder slides into the top of the cooker, that inside the sylinder is a blue plastic molding which has melted. there should not be any heat at all in this area, so can any one help with why and how 2 fix it.

SOURCE: cadac Carri Chef bbq replacement gas valve.

Remove grey plastic cover by removing two screws inside cooking area, then pop handle off valve, undo nuts to release valve body, carefully remove two screws in body, watch out for spring!
Take the small hexagon jet out of other end, find a small straight item that will pass through hole where jet was, tap the internal part out of the main body , clean everything up, probably carbon on it! Apply a tiny bit of oil to the plug you tapped out, avoid the tiny hole in plug! Now reverse the strip down, making sure that the valve goes back together the right way and still turns through right sequence! Normal cause of it sticking is not pushing it in whilst turning off!

Need assembly instructions for a jackaroo flinders 4 burner bbq

It is a discontinued product so you are probably going to have to just lay all the parts out and guess. You could also look for assembly instructions for a similar BBQ made by Weber. They all follow a logical sequence.

I did find reviews, you could ask if anyone has the manual and when you ask a question, the question is sent to those who have reviewed already.

Patio comfort heater won't light

Sometimes you have to completely disassemble the pilot assembly to clear the blockage, the orifice for the pilot jet is very small and you can not get directly to it unless you take it apart. If this does not help, you may need a new valve.
