Re: marshall control valve . gas regulator valve

I went to Lowe's and bought a replacement regulator (I am not at home so I can not cite the model number - but drop me a note if you need it) and using the adapter off the original regulator, it works like new.

Re: marshall control valve . gas regulator valve

Replace the regulator as this is typically an issue where the diaphragm has separated from between the body and bonnet. This is not repairable. There is no recall for this as was in the case of the 450 regulator as it is a manufacturing variance that happens with all products. It passed initial QC, but in time the diaphragm moved.

Convert gas grill natural

ducane will not make these available anymore because the ducane family no longer owns the company and the models since 2007 are all made in china with poor quality controls. conversions are simple but the parts will not come through ducane or weber. replace the orifice in the tip of every control valve and replace the regulator. that is the only difference in fuel types.

The model number 842-A250-0 does not match any Brinkmann gas grill models in my data base. However, if yours is a standard gas grill, that uses a 20lb LP tank, you can purchase a hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories. Make sure to take you old one with for comparison purposes (ie hose length).

Further, if you regulator has GDA on it. It was recalled by Brinkmann during a voluntary Safety Recall. If your regulator hasGDA on it, contact Brinkmann Customer Service (800) 675-5301 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday. They will provide you with a free repair kit. You must provide and accurate Model Number & Serial Number of your grill, to take advantage of this Safety Recall.

Hope this helps you find the hose/regulator assembly you need. Please let me know.

Can a weber spirit e210 natural gas grill be converted to LP gas? I won the grill but don't have natural gas at my home

Weber sells conversion kits. Basically, you need a new regulator and manifold to accommodate LP instead of the existing regulator/manifold setup for natural gas. Unfortunately, Weber does not sell their parts online. Their parts phone # is: 877-731-8081

1st burner goes out when 2nd burner is turned on

I had the same problem. They original regulator and hose were poorly designed for this model. There isn't enough room underneath without crimping the hose. I bought a standard regulator and shorter hose combination a Home Depot for about $20. It makes a 90 degree turn coming out of the tank and does not kink the hose.

It was worth the $20.

Troubleshooting amana gas grill

From a tag that came with the grill -

"To ensure proper gas flow, all of the burner control valves MUST be off before opening the LP cas cylinder valve.

When turning on the LP gas cylinder valve, make sure to open the valve SLOWLY two complete turns to ensure proper gas flow.

All LP tanks now come equipped with a leak detection device internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly it will restrict the gas supply to the appliance. Opening the valve rapidly may simulate a gas leak, causing the safety device to activate, restricting gas flow and causing low flames or poor ignition.

Opening the valve slowly will insure this safety feature is not falsely triggered."

I would guess you triggered the tank failsafe inadvertently.

My baby q is sick

Since 1995 all regulators (the part that attaches to the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a gas leak. This safety device can be inadvertently activated in two ways, putting the grill into what is commonly called “bypass”. The first way for the device to be activated is to leave one or more burner control knobs in the “ON” position when the LP cylinder valve is opened. The second is not to wait long enough to “start” the grill after opening the LP cylinder valve. The safety device in the regulator is activated each time that the LP cylinder valve is opened. The device resets itself when the gas pressure equalizes between the closed burner control valve and the regulator, through the hose. If a burner control knob is turned on before the gas pressure can equalize, the device will remain in “bypass”. The length of time necessary to wait to “start” the grill after turning on the LP cylinder valve is dependent on the length of the hose and outside air temperature. It is always good practice to wait a few seconds after opening the LP cylinder valve before turning on the burner control knob to start the grill.
Keep in mind that the safety device reacts to a gas leak. If a grill is in bypass, the gas connections and hose should be tested for leaks with a soap and water solution.
If the grill is in bypass, after checking for gas leaks do the following to get the grill out of bypass:
To reset the gas safety device:
Open the barbecue lid.
1. Close the LP tank valve.
2. Turn your burner control knob to the OFF position.
3. Wait at least 5 minutes if the barbecue had been lit, then
4. Disconnect the hose from the LP tank.
5. Turn your burner control knob to the HIGH position.
6. Wait at least 2 minutes, and then turn the burner control knob to the OFF position.
7. Re-connect the hose to the LP tank.
Re-lighting the barbecue:
1. Open the barbecue lid.
2. SLOWLY open the LP tank valve all the way and wait 1 minute.
3. With the lid open, turn the burner control knob to the HIGH position.
4. Ignite the grill by pushing the crossover ignition button.
5. Close the barbecue lid.
6. The barbecue should reach 500 to 550 degrees in 10-15 minutes.
When you are done grilling:
1. Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
2. Turn off the LP tank valve last.
* Always follow the re-lighting instructions whenever you use the adapter hose and larger tank.

Propane Regulator Adjustment

Remove the plastic cover on the center of the regulator. To increase pressure setting, turn the plastic disk beneath with a screw driver. 1 turn clockwise increases the pressure 1/2" water column.
