Question about Grilling

2 Answers

I have a Coleman Instastart grill that runs off the green butane canisters. After only a few uses I can't seem to get it to start. The trouble seems to be the attachment that connects the canister to the grill. The tank has fuel, but when I attach it to the connector attached to the grill and turn the burner on, nothing happens. I've tried detaching the connector and pressing the little non inside and the butane isn't coming out. The tank hisses when I unscrew it and butane comes out when I press the tank's nozzle. So somewhere between the tank and the end on the connector there's an issue. Any suggestions? Do they sell replacement connectors? Thank you!

Hi Adam. It sounds like you have a bad regulator, or (less likely) your line is clogged. You can buy a new line or regulator for this unit on the coleman site. Here is a link to the catalog- you'll need to find your exact model to find the part

I believe this is a press fit connection. As Knight 007 writes, "it's worn out".

SOURCE: Difficulty filling gas tank '06 Silverado 2500 HD 6.0 4x4 w/125K

Well come to the GM World. The filler tube to the gas tank is small and i find it to be the same on my Jimmy and my wife's Montana.
When filling, try starting off slow. Then gradually pull on the trigger more, as you fill the tank with gas. The fluid going in back's up with the air coming out. When you start off slow then pull on the trigger more you give the gas going in and air coming out time to create a path through that they can don't really interfere much with one another.
After a while you'll find a certain way (eather tilted to the left or right) to place the Gas pump nozzle in the filler tube to keep it from cutting off on you.
Good luck and hope this helps. If there is anything wrong with the EVAP. Charcoal canister, vacuum tubes or valve, your Service Engine light would go on. The ECM monitors all of that and would save a DTC in the ECM's memory to be retrieved by a technition's scanner.

SOURCE: fuel tank vent valve?

If it`s the one on top of the tank then yes it can be replaced without replacing the whole tank.In order to remove it you have to push down and counter clockwise.If you can`t get one at the dealer then go to the salvage yard and take one off a tank there.If it comes off you could get s check engine light.Good luck.

Brand new with brand new one pound Coleman canister. Spent hours trying to get it lit. Seems like lp is not coming through. Removed canister and replaced many times. Dont smell lp.

if you got the cannister from the shop with the grill the chances are that the cannister needs filling first as gas bottles are empty when new.

I have just purchased a little portable gas grill. Do I unscrew the Coleman Propane Fuel cannister when I am finished cooking or leave it attache? It seemed that my first tank didn't go very far.

To be safe, Yes. Be sure to turn the canister tank is turned OFF before removing it. Also, be sure that when you reattach it, that you open the gas tank valve Very, Very Slowly (Slow Motion, slow). This will prevent the regulator from getting locked up.

Hope this helped and Happy Grilling!!

I have a coleman roadtrip grill. I use a propane screw in canister. When I lite up the grill there is a flame that comes out by the propane cylinder were is screws on the back of the grill. How do I fix...

There is no repair. The canister holder/control valve will have to be replaced. You can contact Weber directly at 800-446-1071. If they don't have it try Appliance Factory Parts They have a large selection of replacement parts for all makes & model grills.

Good luck and Happy Grilling!!

The canister doesn't seem to be pressurizing after pumping steadily for 1 minute

on some models you need to rotate the plunger to engage the seal then pump it.

I have a Colemann 3000 grill which is in need of repair. The grill has been in storage for the past five years. The guts seem to have rusted out. I'll replace the parts, but am curious as to how best to...

Order the parts from or take it to Sears or grill repair person. If you do it yourself, take it apart first so you know wxactly what parts you need. I have the same grill in the same condition. I am replacing the rusted parts and expect it to look and function like new. I got mine to last a little longer by spraying the inside of the grill down with PAM in between uses after cleaning.

Coleman instastart propane stove regulator wanted

Check to see if Coleman has an attachment to replace the regulator, so that you can use a five gallon cylinder with your stove and your own regulator.
