Try opening the tank really slowly. if you open it too quickly the overfill protection devise in the tank will restrict the gas flow to the burners. hope this helps.

My propane tank still feels partially filled (half a tank) but the flame and heat don't seem to be generating what they should even when turned to high, is there a clog in my system? Where should I...


The chances are that the orifice for the gas is blocked. If your grill has been outside it is possible that spiders have clogged the valve. Spiders are attracted to the propane gas odor. Remove the line at the valve and turn the gas on to make sure the valve is clear (do this outside). If the valve is clear, check the line from the valve to the burner jet, Check each piece in order from the valve to the jet. This should clear the problem.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks

I have a full tank of propane - my pilot light is sparking but it will not light? Any ideas on what to check? Thank you, Korby


Korby, I think you meant, your ignitor is sparking and you're not getting gas to the pilot. Since you have a full tank of propane, I can rule out that the tank is empty. However, I believe the tank or at least the tank valve is playing a role in this.

Turn the tank valve completely OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow) until the valve is fully open. Then light the pilot as you normally would. If the pilot lights, you solved the problem. If it didn't, either the pilot light is clogged and needs to be cleaned or the heater's hose/regulator assembly needs to be replaced.

"RUUD Achiever 90 Plus" Propane


Hello bikejocky,

MOST LIKELY you have a "hot surface" element
with a tiny crack in it...
About 25 years ago... I put one of my poor abused
fingers on the element to see if it was at all warm...
In so doing I touched the spot where the crack was...
and it did INDEED have a full 120 volt, 60 cycle AC
current waiting for my FINGER to complete the
circuit... (not a recommended procedure)

My 25 year old RHEEM... finally kicked it.
I keep spares... and bought 2 more when I used
the last

Since these parts are pretty cheap... I get spares
62 22868 93 Rheem 62 22868 93 Hot Surface Ignitor

Take a look... There are two basic configurations

The WISEST APPROACH is to use a "meter"
to verify the "line current" is present (not finger)
and check the "SURFACE" for continuity.

Once you copy the number DIRECTLY from
YOUR OWN part... look it up... internet... eBay
and AMAZON (like Robert Shaw #41-408).
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ROBERTSHAW-41-408-Hot-surface-ignitor-NORTON-271N-/121727955205?hash=item1c578d3105:m:mJR3I8e9mTI60A-dtmvdVrw

>> It is the plug & mount that is important...!!

(consider that spare you always wanted
(If you get it... you will probably never need it)).

~~

The cycling limit & fan
(never touched a RUUD... (so... I presume)) is to clear accumulated GAS FUMES to avoid any explosive
situations.

I do know RHEEM... (ERGO... I have every confidence)
((RHEEM & RUUD, in my opinion, are design twins)).

Grill does not get hot. I have a fresh bottle of propane. Hose is not kinked. Grill is maybe 6 - 10 years old.


hi,
When a new or newly filled propane tank is attached to your gas grill, the OPD is usually at its maximum limit position above a tank filled to capacity. Propane may come through the valve too strongly due to the additional pressure of being full and the OPD displacement. The propane tank goes into check and limits gas flow when too much pressure hits the valve. Some grill manufacturers provide instructions for this in the users manuals but most people do not read the manual. Many grillers believe replacement parts are needed and burners, ignitors and regulators get replaced without reason. Depending on how efficient the grill is operating, some grills attached to a tank in check will not ignite and others will light but cannot reach cooking temperatures because the tank has limited the amount of propane released. Sometimes the food will be unable to exceed 200 degrees in temperature because the propane tank is in check.


Gas grill replacement parts are available and are sometimes necessary, low or no gas flow indicates a different typr of repair. Most grillers accept instructions and the problem is corrected in minutes -- but believe it or not I have had a few insist on purchasing replacement parts.
How do I fix grill?
To reset the check valve and get back to cooking on your gas barbecue grill, first
turn everything off. Turn off the grill, the rotisserie, the side burner and the LP gas cylinder tank. Once everything is turned off disconnect the propane tank from the gas grill regulator by unscrewing it or pulling the quick-release on older or retro-fitted propane cylinders. Now turn the grill on. I know, it is dis-connected from the gas tank but we want to ensure that the pressure in the gas lines or any gas in the burners is released. Leave all grill burners in the on position for 3 - 5 minutes before turning them off. Make sure. Most gas grill valves must be pushed in to turn them and if turning is attempted without pushing the knob, they will not turn to the "on" position. With the grill, et al turned off reconnect the propane tank and slowly turn the hand wheel to the open position.
Slowly. The trick here is to turn the hand wheel slowly. Propane in a new or very full tank will be under more pressure, especially with the OPD floating in position. The extra pressure will come through the tank valve stronger. Turn the gas tank slowly allowing small increments of propane to enter the grill.


Once this is complete, you should be able to turn the grill on high and ignite your gas grill burner. Your cooking heat should be back to normal and cooking times decreased. If the problem persists, try this process again to make sure you followed every step. The check valve exists to save your life if there is a leak in any of the gas fittings. Constant check valve issues could imply a gas leak and a visit from your local gas grill service technician may be necessary.
To find a leak, turn the grill valves to the off position and the gas tank valve to the full on position. This should pressurize the gas line. Spray soapy water on all the fittings and look for bubbles just like checking for the leak in a flat tire.
Do not attempt to correct a gas leak on your own. While a check valve error when your gas grill will not get hot or will not ignite is a user education error and an issue corrected by learning about your propane tank, a gas leak should be corrected by a licensed gas service technician. When you are grilling, turn the propane tank on first and then turn on your grill. When you are done cooking, turn the gas tank off first and then turn off the grill valves. The process releases the pressure in the gas grill hose and manifold which allows the gas tank to release pressure by filling these lines. Read the safety features of your gas grill, clean it when necessary and replace used and failing parts. Aside from that be safe, eat well and have fun.

thanks.
