SOURCE: have a 2 year old char broil bbq, have to start it

More than likely, the valve at the barbeque is clogged. Sometimes spiders will plug the valve since they are drawn to the smell of the propane. You can either clean the valve or replace it.

Julian, let's get this corrected for your 4th of July Cookout.

1. Turn the 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 valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first & turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and the fa,e height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner exactly
the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.
Always remember to turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

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

I hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem, Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

SOURCE: Unable to get gas our of 'Blue Rhino" propane

The problem is an easy fix. Replace the current Hose/Regulator Assembly with a new one. They run about $30.00, at home centers and hardware stores that sell grills and accessories.

Once you install the new one and connect it to the gas tank, open the gas tank valve Very Very Slowly (Slow Motion, Slow) until it's fully open. If you don't do it this, the new regulator will lockup.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Not sure what you are connecting, but there is normally a safety button on the bottom of the regulator, push it in and the gas will flow,

Will only run with choke closed,is run on propane


check that the gas converter/ regulator is operational and allowing enough gas through with out the choke
With the choke closed your are creating high vacuum in the inlet manifold that is sucking enough gas past the regulator to run on
have it checked and tested by an accredited gas fitter

Are the propane tanks fitted with a pressure regulator?

The propane gas regulator is one of the most important parts of a propane gas system (or a compressed natural gas system as well).

The purpose of the regulator is to control the flow of gas and lower the pressure from the tank to the appliance(s) in the gas system.

The regulator not only acts as a control regarding the flow and distribution of propane (or CNS) but also as a safety barrier between the high pressure of the tank and the end use appliance(s).

Without it, you can cause serious damage to the appliance's gas valve and create a disaster- fire or explosion.

The valve on the tank has an internal valve that will not allow you to release propane into the atmosphere. It must be connected to a regulator line in order to open.
It sounds like your regulator has failed. Remove the regulator assembly, inspect it carefully for blockage or hose kinks. If there none, try replacing the regulator assembly.

My q grill is not heating properly. I have a full tank of propane and the grill is clean but the burner is not getting enough gas to heat past 200 degrees


The new style2_bing.gif OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem
IF not you might want to remove the cap (white) on your regulator and try slowly adjusting the regulator, make small adjustments and try the BBQ My Weber if I set the front and back burners to MED I get right at 350 degrees in 60 degree outdoor temps. Adjusting the regulator will take some time to get it right but If it is not your tank it is most likely your regulator out of adjustment

I'm getting spark but no ignition on my Endless Summer patio heater. It's an older model. Any suggestions?


I am guessing that this is a propane model. If so, when it is sparking, can you hear any propane flowing at the pilot. It will sound like a light hiss. If not, either the pilot is plugged, caused my many reasons, or the regulator on the propane hose is stuck. If you are able to access the pilot assemble, you can take a small wire, or even a sewing needle to clear the orifice. If that does not help, you may need to replace the regulator or the connection for the tank.
