Check to make sure that the connection on the gas tank is all the way on and tight. Sometimes, the refilled LP tanks have slight variations in the valve and getting the grill connector on is half the problem, most times. Just remove and reinstall the connector to see if that does the trick.

The other thing to check is the air/gas orifices located just at the beggining of the burner assembly (usually under the grill cabinet). Look for spider webs or anything that might be obstucting the openings there. These openings have to be clear and clean and anything in there, will cause problems with the flame consistency, so checking these often is a good idea.

If that dosn't resolve it, it could be that the tank has/had some loose rust inside it that has partially obstructed the tank valve orifice. When this happens, and it happens to our grill frequently, since we used the refilled (exchange) tanks that lots of people use these days.

I'll light the grill and while the grill is set on LOW, take the tank and tip it up at least sideways to slightly upside down for a VERY brief moment to get the obstruction to flow through the orifice. Do this only for a very few seconds and then tip the tank back upright then you can try your grill to see if the high burner setting is working better.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Why does boiler glow off relief valve and burner never stop running even wit thermostat turned down?


Without knowing the specific boiler, sounds like it's not sensing high limit. Could be bare wires touching, but more likely a bad aquastat.

Gas burner won't light unless gas is turned down to the low position.


I've had this happen before,first make sure that the black burner cap is clean underneath and it's making good contact with the aluminium burner,also make sure the igniter is sparking across to the burner, check the ceramic coating around the igniter isn't cracked or the wires shorting out . Good luck.

My grill has 4 burners. When I light the first one, everything is fine. When I go to light the second one, it sounds like it is cutting off the gas and it won't light. You can hear the gas coming out...


The problem you're having is a result of the gas tank & the grill's gas regulator. However, in most cases, it's solvable if you do the following.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF & 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 full open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set it on HIGH.
Does the fame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the exact same way.
Did all the burners light and the flame heights look correct? Is so, you solved the problem.
Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at hardware stores or home centers that sell grills & grill accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

Lynn, the problem lies with the gas regulator and the way you turn the tank ON. But it's readily solvable.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF & 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 and set it on HIGH.
Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the exact same way.
Do all the flame heights look correct? If so, your solved the problem. Always remember to
open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. They run about $30.00 at any hardware store or home center that sells grills and accessories. Simply take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Not enough gas/flame.


You probably have water in the burners. If you can get one burner to light, let it warm up the grill and maybe it will dry out the others.

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.

Surface unit indicator light is always on


One set of contacts in a surface unit switch is "welded" together, causing the burner indicator (pilot) light to remain on even when all burners are shut off.
With power disconnected to the range, remove the back cover behind the switches and pull one of the wires going from a surface unit switch to the indicator lamp. Make sure the bare wire is not touching anything and reconnect power. If the light goes out (and still goes on when the other burners are turned on) you found the bad switch. If light still on, repeat the procedure with another one of the burner switches (reconnecting the first) until you find which switch is the bad one. (most often it is the burner you use the most, generally the right front burner) If you post your full model number and tell me which switch it is, I can look up the part number for you.

Low flame/ side burner dosen't light


I just read this online and it worked for me. Hope you have similar luck.

Newer propane tanks contain a self regulating feature that will automatically slow down the flow of fuel if it thinks it's too high. This can be solved by turning the tank valve off completely and disconnecting it. Open the control valves (on the grill control panel) and ten close them. Reconnect the fuel tank and slowly turn on the valve. Now light the grill to see if that fixes it.
