Are you connecting to a 20lb tank or a 1 lb throw away? If you are connecting to a 20 lb tank, it sounds like the tank "checked" meaning the OPD valve shut down. Do you get a low flame? Let me know so we can further assist you.

SOURCE: Screen stays blank when plugged up to charge.

Hello. many GPS's have a reset button hidden under the plastic frame around the screen. look around the perimeter of the screen and you may see a thumb nail ****. Carefully pry off the screen and you may see a reset button. push the reset and hopefully you will be up and running again.

Where can I get a regulator for a Hummer bbq


BBQ regulators for BBQ are a standard item. You can get them from your local big box DIY store like Home Depot. Or you can get one on ebay.

bbq regulator

BBQ does not get hot enough to cook properly. All gas jets are clean as BBQ is almost new


blue flame? if flame is not blue, then air gap needs adjusting. if blue flame and burner control is on high, then could be your regulator. (assuming tank if full)

Gas bbq


flame running back is an indication of insufficient gas pressure or flow. check and adjust the regulator and ensure that there is no blockage in the jets.

The flow gas coming from the burner is very slow. only heats up to less than 200 degrees. even the side burner is the same. i've cleaned it and changed tank. what is my next step?


It could be a defective LP gas regulator or a restriction somewhere in the gas line for the bbq. This can also happen if the propane tank is overfilled.

First make sure that the LP tank is not overfilled. If you open the bleeder hole on the tank(small screw next to the valve) there should be no liquids coming out. If liquid propane is coming out then the tank is overfilled. Keep the bleeder screw loose until the liquid disappears then tighten. Re-connect the tank and see if that fixes the problem.

Then inspect all the gas lines on the bbq. Make sure that there are no kinks or crushed lines.

Then take a look at the gas regulator. Try turning on all the burners then give the regulator a couple good taps on the housing with something solid. See if the burner changes size. If it does and then goes back down it could be the gas regulator. Also take a look at the regulator housing. There should be a very small hole on the housing and it might be labled "vent". Make sure that this little hole is not plugged with any debris or that can cause a low pressure problem. You can use a sewing needle to gently poke out the hole. You will know if it worked because the burners will become much higher. And you could also try disconnecting the hose and regulator assembly from the bbq then turn on the LP tank slowly with the regulator connected. You should get plenty of gas flow from the end of the hose. Then use your hand to block and release the flow a couple times to try and clear any debris that might stuck in the regulator.BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS!!! MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLEAR OF ANY SOURCES OF IGNITION BEFORE TRYING TO CLEAR THE REGULATOR. Then reconnect the hose regulator and tank to see if the problem is fixed. If you are getting very low flow from the hose with the regulator disconnected then it is probably a defective regulator. They are pretty standard and you can purchase a new LP hose and regulator assembly from most home improvement stores.

If the regulator checks out good then I would think that there is a restriction in the main gas line for the bbq after the regulator. You will need you dis-assemble the main line and blow it out with some compressed air to clear the restriction.

Removing old regulator


I presume you mean on a Q-series grill.
DIsconnect the hose or can.
remove the burner tube by removing the hex bolt holding it down to the bos next to the igniter and lifting that end and sliding the mixer tube out and away from the regulator.
Then pull the gas nob off. It takes a little force, but can be done. That exposes a brass nut that holds the regulator to the mounting plate. It has normal right-hand threads, so back it right off. Then, you can take the regulator/valve assembly right out the back of the mounting plate. The regulator and valve are connected with normal right-hand threads and come right apart. Use teflon tape when reassembling, and that brass nut goes cylinder-side (it's not a plain hex).

Uniflame bbq grill


had same problem- noticed regulator iced up. received new regulator under warranty from uniflame. still same problem. tapped on regulator and started to work better but should not have to do that. maybe regulators are defective, but not a grill doctor.
