My uniflame has two burners and one does not ignite. Everything seems to be tight. What can I do to get this to ignite when turning ignition knob? Thanks!


When you say two burners, I believe you are referring to the pilot flame and the main burner. The pilot flame has to light and heat the thermocouple befoe the main burner will ignite. The pilot flame will not light if: there is not enough gas in the tank, the pilot jet is clogged, or the regulator is bad. Check the tank to make sure it has gas. The next thing to check is the pilot jet. You have to take the heater apart, somewhat, to get to the pilot jet. The tube and the orifice need to be cleaned out, compressed air in a can and a pipe cleaner make the job a little easier. If this does not work, replace the reglator and hose.

My weber genesis silver starts up, but doesn't get hot enough to cook the food. Seems like not enough flame out of either front or back burners. I tried Outting in a full propane tank, but that didn't...


Try these steps in order.
  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally

Burner flames don't get hot, like not enough gas.


Try this, Turn off the tank. Disconnect it. Reconnect it. Turn tank valve back on very slowly and then see if you get bigger flame size.

Gas not coming out enough; flame not catching on to other burners


Problem: Low flames on grill, tank is full.

Cause: These newer tanks have a device inside that limits the flow of gas to prevent leaking or accidental discharge of gas from the cylinder. The leak detector mechanism inside the tank shuts off the gas whenever the valve is opened rapidly.

Solution:
Close the tank valve and remove the tank. Check the gas line for ANY object that could cause blockage. Open all valves on the grill to eliminate any pressure whatsoever. Close all valves and reattach tank. SLOWLY open the tank not over 2 turns. Check for leaks. I just open my tank a tiny bit but that is just me.

This late model gas grill service manual has more details on page 13.

Doesn't seem to be enough gas going into the


Hi am welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

1. Does the LPG tank have gas in it?
2. Is it one gas control or more that gives you this symptom? If it is more than one and there is gas in the LPG tank then the LPG regulator can be the problem.
3. There can be debris on the face of the gas orifice where the burner mates to to the gas control selector assy. (Spider webs / grease /dirt)
4. The air hole in the burner can be partially blocked with something (same as above Grease, dirt, cob webs)
5. The holes in the burner itself can be corroded or blocked with something. (This one would be pretty obvious)
6. The gas valve 'heat control may not be functioning properly.
7. There is a very remote possibility that the LPG hose has collapsed.

I would check the orifice and the burner holes for obstructions after verifying the LPG tank is usable. Then the next suspect would be the LPG regulator.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly

Gas not getting to grill


Two things could be wrong. Tank valve could be bad, not allowing gas to flow. Or regulator could be bad not allowing gas to pass. Try taking the tank off and pushing a screwdriver into the end of it with the tank open, if gas doesn't come out tank valve is bad, valve has a spring in it to shut down if starts leaking. If tank valve is good regulator must be bad. I am leaning more towards to the tank valve.

Burners light and go out on kenmore quantum


sounds like gas is not flowing enough to support all burners- if its propaine,then it has a Regulator that connects to tank. That Regulator is bad and needs to be replaced. Burners clogged or rusted is not a good thing also
