    I seem to have the problem where the regulator has gone into the excess flow restricter situation. I have gone thru the steps to try to reset the regulator, but no luck. Should I buy a new regulator?? How do I remove and reinstall?

Hello,

Check the excess flow safety device, which is part if the barbeque to cylinder connection, may have activated. To reset the excess flow safety device turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve off.
Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to high. Wait at least 1 minute . Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve slowly. I HAD THIS PROBLEM JUST LAST NIGHT AND FIXED IT RIGHT THEN.

One day it will not heat up over 300 degrees and the next day it will heat up over 400 degrees without any problem. I dont know if it is the gas tank or the grill. Nothing on the grill appears to be...


More than likely, it's the OPD valve on the LP G tank. When it won't heat up above 300 degrees is after the tank was turned OFF & then turned back ON? If that is the case, disconnect the gas line from the tank, wait 5 minutes, reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY. This will keep the tank valve from locking up the grill regulator and thereby, gas will get fully to each burner. If this doen't correct the problem the first time, repeat the above procedure.

That should solve your problem

Grill won't heat up above 200 DEGREES with a nearly full tank


Try replacing the regulator and hose, not very expensive and fairly easy to do. If that doesn't help, let me know.

Grill not getting hot, fire not around burners, knobs are so hot you can't touch them. not getting over 300 degrees, fire seems to be behind knobs


We assembled our new Genesis E-310 yesterday. Went together nicely, but won't heat above 350 or so. It should get to 500-550 degrees withing 10-15 mins. Any ideas of what could be wrong?

Char Broil commercial grill won't heat pass 300 degrees


I had a similar problem and thought the propane kept running out....come to find out it was a defective regulator. $21 at the local ACE store as running to LOWES and trying to get a point across to a 17 yr old summer help college kid for a intermittent problem seemed more challenging then it was worth. Would barely light the burners and would not get over 200 degrees. Ripped it apart...blew through all the orfices including the regulator put it all back together and would work for a while then fail again. Good luck!
