    I have the same problem except I have a Kenmore 6 burner grill.  I can light a max of 4 burners - with not much heat.  When I light the 5th, all the flames go out.  Just replaced all of the burners and STILL happens.

Did this problem just start? if so check your regulator or the main line for a crimp or obstruction.

I have a Kenmore Quantum grill and all of a sudden the burners do not want to ignite. The propane tank is new. I tried with a lighter to ignite the burners and nothing. The ignitor button doesn't...


The problem you're having is related to the OPD Valve in the Propane Tank. But, it is solvable by following the instructions below.


1. Turn the gas 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 tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
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. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My first 2 burners furthest from the tank light alright, however when I light the middle burner or the other 2 closest to the tank my flame dies out.


Sean, It sounds like a gas pressure problem, that may be easy to resolve.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF

2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait five minutes.

3. After 5 minutes, reconnect the hose to the tank and 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. Does the
Flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the exact same way. Now, did all
the remaining burners light and the flame heights look normal? If so, you solved the problem.
Remember, always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

If that did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator assembly. You can purchase one for about $30,00 from any home improvement center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope the helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Kenmore 800 grill replaced ignitor i get a spark but it won't light


First and foremost, make sure the gas tank valve is turned ON and that there is adequate gas in the tank. If that all checks out, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.

2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.

3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion,
slow).

4. Once the valve is full 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 burner(s) the same
way. Did all the burners light and the flame heights look normal. I so, you just solved the
problem (with a little help).

Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

If it didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Regulator/Hose Assembly. You can purchase on at any home center or hardware store that sell gas 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!!

We have a spirit grill with 3 burners. I can light the grill, but burners 1 & 2 don't have a nice line of blue flame like burner 3. Burner 2 is especially bad with orange flames on the right and left...


Are you sure there's adequate gas in the tan? If so do the following:

Disconnect the LP tank from the grill hose. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY,VERY SLOWLY, until it is full open. Light your burners individually and turn to highest flame setting, before lighting the next burner and so on.

If that solved your problem GREAT. Remember to turn the tank on that way in the future.
If it didn't you'll need to remove the burners and clean each one.

Hope this helped to get you back up and grilling again.

It is possible that your burners are clogged. Clean the burner ports with a paperclip (not a toothpick).

Loss of pressure on Kenmore 16322


I can tell you EXACTLY what is wrong. Remove the tank and open all valves to the grill. Reconnect the tank and turn it on just slightly. Relight the grill.
Ther is a safety device in the tank that needs to be reset. The only way to do it is removing the tank.

Gas grill lights but doesn't get very hot


I had this same problem especially when the tank on my 5 burner 2 year-old Kenmore was about half full. The solution above fixed it. I was used to opening the gas fully, turning one burner to high and clicking the button. If I would have read the front of the grill I would have seen that this was incorrect. I turned off the grill completely, unhooked the regulator and reconnected it. With one burner on high I began clicking the button BEFORE I turned on the gas. I slowly turned the gas on one quarter turn and it lit up full flame. I slowly turned the gas another quarter turn and lit the second burner. I slowly opened the gas all the way and lit the third and so on. That did the trick!

KENMORE Gas Grill 141-152210 Kenmore 437 sq. in cooking will only heat to 250 degrees


sudsy, this exact same thing would happen to me every time I changed a tank. I know it's nothing to do with the grill itself. I would have to seat and reseat the regulator hose to the tank a couple of times before it would start heating normally. Your model has 3 burners and I suspect that the flame is real low on each one even on the high setting. Try connecting and disconnecting the tank a couple of times and see if it comes to life. If worse comes to worse you can order a new regulator hose. Part number P3632L. Catriver..post back.
