Question about Ducane Standard 1504 (LP) Grill

Open Question

Orange flame on one side....

I have a 10 year old Ducane 1504 which I love. When I turned it on the right side had orange flames come out from the knob so I turned it off. I removed the tube tried to clean it by tapping it and using a wire brush. after repositioning it the flames through the knob are gone. however, the flame is high and orange. The left side has a low blue flame - the way I think its supposed to work. Does anyone know what the problem is and how I can fix it? Is the grill safe to use?

POP OFF A KNOB AND LOOK TO SEE IF THERE IS A TINY SCREW IN THE CENTER OF THE KNOB SHAFT . THAT WOULD BE YOUR ADJUSTMENT FOR GAS FLOW. IF IT'S NOT THERE, THE PROBLEM IS IN YOUR REGULATOR, AND IT'S ADJUSTABLE AS WELL.

SOURCE: flame from behind knob

no these are a one time fail valve because the reason there is a flame is the packing has came out of the valve. Most of these valves may be purchased from either westlake hardware, home depot, or wal-mart.

SOURCE: low flame

The newer type tank has an anti tip safety device. It gets all boo boo'd when the grill is moved around. Remove the tank. Open the valves on the grill and close them back. Re install the tank and slowly open the valve.

SOURCE: low flame on burner...

Remove the burner and check the flexible tubes for kinks or blockages. The flexible tubes usually just slip over the backs of the valves. Spiders love to get in there and block them. Also check that the holes in the burners are not clogged. Be careful when reseating the flexible tubes to be sure that they are properly seated on the back of the valves. Failure to properly seat the flexible tubes can cause leakage there, and the gas can ignite at the back of the valves and not reach the burner. Be certain that the replacement burner is designed to use with your grill and the flexible tubes mate properly with the back of the valves.

The most common cause of reduced flames is a pressure problem. Could be the gas regulator for the grill. When the burners are on try giving the gas regulator a tap with something hard and see if they change size. If they do then the rqulator could be sticking. And there is a very small hole on the regulator called a vent. If this hole gets plugged with dirt or grease you can get a low pressure problem. Look very carefully on the regulator housing for this small hole and verify that it is clear. Try using a small metal wire(like a tie strap for sandwich bags) to make sure it is clear. Also verify that the tank(if propane) is not overfilled. An overfilled propane tank will cause a pressure problem. You can turn the relief screw on the propane tank until no more liquid comes out to see if this fixes your problem.

Adjust blue flame


should be a band you can turn where the tubes connect to the back of the knobs...if not, check for spiderwebs or gunk in the tubes themselves. There's not enough oxygen in the mix.

My grill will not get as hot as it use to...it has new burner tubes-2or3months old and a simi strong wind blows out the flame.what do I do?


The problem lies in the grill's regulator. It more than likely happened when you turned the tank OFF while replacing the burners and then turning it back ON again.

There is a solution that normally works.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the gas tank valve VERY, VERY
Slowly (Slow motion, slow), until the valve is fully open.

3. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height now look
correct? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look
correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very
Slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly, as your regulator is partially locked up. You can pick one up at any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

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

When stove is on a yellowish orange flame comes from burner.This has not occured until now. We own this viking oven for about 10 yrs without any issue whatso ever. Can you help to resolve this issue


You need to replace the burner if you want blue flame. Since its 10 years old, it's about time to replace the burner with similar size and shape. Old burner have big hole causing yellowish flame compare to new one.
I hope I solve your problem.

One of the burners is how burning a red orange flame that is too high and creates black smoke when turned to a high setting.


Hi,
That burner probably has the wrong orfice in it...the hole is too big and so too much gas comes out creating the large flame...
You will need to contact the company to get the proper orfice...

Try blowing the burner out with compressed air. They're not adjustable but can get clogged up and change the air to gas mix.

Do you have enough gas pressure coming out of the regulator and gas valve? You'll need a pressure guage for this.

If yes, try taking out the burners and cleaning them with a wire brush, especially the flame spreading sections.
