EXTINCTION POP
(1) Recognition of Extinction Pop. Sometimes a small explosion of gas in the burner head occurs when the burner is shut off. Under these conditions flashback on extinction has taken place. This problem is commonly called "extinction pop." Extinction pop, as the name implies, creates a noise or a "bang." Ordinarily, it is not followed by burning in the burner head or mixing tube, since the gas supply is turned off. The pop occurs at the time the gas supply to the burner is shut off. Sometimes it may be delayed for a few seconds.
(2) Results of Extinction Pop. Ordinarily, extinction pop is not unsafe or hazardous, and will not damage the appliance. It may result in a customer complaint because of the noise created. However, the resultant concussion may blow out the pilot flame. If an automatic pilot safety device is used, it will act to shut off the gas supply to the appliance.
(3) Correction of Extinction Pop. It may be possible to eliminate extinction pop by reducing primary air supplied to the burner. Make sure this air adjustment does not cause yellow-tipping during normal burner operation. Check proper gas pressure and proper gas orifice size. If these actions fail to correct the problem, burner change may be required.

Sounds like propane. Please is heavier than air. Try opening air shutters on burners.

Regarding charmglow 720-0289. can't get a hot enough flame. cleaned all burners and made sure all orficis on the burner were clear even blew out with air hose


Are the burner flames diminishing as you turn on additional burners? In other words, is the flame size correct when one burner is lit, but too small when several burners are lit? Is the flame a nice blue color or yellow? If yellow, adjust each burner's air shutter at the end over each orifice. Have you tried adjusting the pressure on your propane regulator? (If it's red, don't mess with it) If it's a silver regulator and has a center cap, you can remove the cap to adjust the screw inside, by turning it clockwise in 1/4 intervals until the desired flame size has been reached. It's also possible that your burners have corroded closed somewhat. Do you have cast iron or stainless steel burners? Cast iron burners tend to corrode shut over the years due to moisture. Stainless steel burners just tend to rust away and flake, but usually become flare ups or out of control flames. Anyway, that gives you some things to look at. Hope it helps. Douglas

Genesis s310 stainless grill. Does not fully light.


Regulator is not bad, as I stated before new valves are designed to reduce gas flow if valve is opened to fast. This is so if grill catches on fire, the tank will shut itself off, thus propane will stop flowing causing fire to extinguish itself.

Weak Flames on Propane Grill


It is possible that your burners are clogged. Clean the burner ports with a paperclip (not a toothpick).

Propane heater goes out after heat cycle


I've seen excessive draft draw the pilot flame away from the thermo couple when the burners light so when the burners shut down so does the pilot.

Black is on the burners


the fuel to air mixture is set incorrectlty or your pressure at the ouitlet for the gas valve is too low.
you culd play around adjusting the first part of this but for the gas valve part you have to have a manaometer to check it out correctly. then it should be set at 10"wc. Good Luck

GE XL44 Working fine but awful burnt propane smell


Remove the burners and clean them with EASY OFF oven cleaner. The passages are likely plugged and this causes incomplete burning of the gas. If you do smell raw gas shut the gas to the stove off RIGHT AWAY and call the local gas supplier.

Change from lp to propane on my whirlpool stove


Propane is LP...(i.e. Liquid Petroleum)

The burners are working only as a fluke. It is extremely dangerous to operate a natural gas stove on propane. STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY. Call your local propane supplier and ask them about converting it to LP/Propane.
