Question about Char-Broil Commercial Stainless Steel Grill

1 Answer

Regulator Repeatedly Reduces The Gas Flow

I have a Char-Broil comercial 4-burner grill model 463268007 running on a 20lb propane tank. After operating correctly for a short time, the regulator reduces the gas flow to a level at which the grill will not stay above 250 degrees. It happens almost every time we use the grill. I'm on my second regulator from Char-Broil (both cause the problem). I've changed tanks. I've unhooked the regulator and let it reset. What's causing this?

The new regulators will automatically shut down or reduce flow if the it senses that the flow is too high (as in a line leak or break). It can also be folled if you open the valve too quickly. There is a special plastic plug that can reset a tripped valve in the new tanks. (Mosquito Magnet supplies one with their product).

The other thing is that there is a recall going on at Char Broil of defective thermometers that are reading too low.

The burners will not light. It appears that they are no getting any propane from the tank. Unfortunately, I have missed the manuel and this is a brand new grill. First time trying to use it and have...


The problem is more than likely the OPD Valve in the gas tank. To solve this problem, turn the Tank Valve 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). Once it's fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to it's highest setting. Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. Now, to all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly. If it didn't solve the problem, make sure you have adequate gas in "old propane tank from the other grill."

How do youremove and replace a charbroil gas grill burner on model number 463268007


Here is a link to the Owners Manual for your model grill. It has the assembly instructions, so just reverse what they are and you'll be in business. As they say, "one picture is worth a thousand words."

New propane tank won't ignite


The regulator on the on the hose is either gone bad, or could have got a little bit of dirt in it. You could tap the side of the regulator gently and sometimes this will solve it.

Will not produce high flame properly


You probably have a bad regulator which you can buy at most stores that sell BBQ's.

I bought a large 5 burner unit 5 years ago.


There are a few things you can check.

1. The burner could be rusted and needs cleaned or repaired.
2. A spider or other insect has built a web in the inlets of the burners.
3. If you are using a 20lb propane tank, it could be overfilled.
4. If you turn off your grill using the propane tank valve and not the valves on the control panel, it may cause the overfill protection device to engage and decrease gas flow.
5. The regulator could be faulty.
6. The jets(orifices) where the gas comes out may be sized to small or may be clogged.

I can't get the grill to light....can you help me?


If you have 20lb gas tank, you could try opening the bottle really slowly. The newer tanks are equipped with a device called OPD, which means, overfill protection device, so when you take it to be refilled the filling station can't over fill it. However, if you open the tank too fast, it will cause this device to restrict the gas flow to the grill.

Just bought new propane tank for my Charbroil grill. First two times it work perfectly. Very short cook times with only 2 out 4 burners on. Now the grill lights but only enough of a flow for a low heat....


Either you got short changes on gas or the regulator is not working properly. Check the tank to see if it is empty, if not then the regulator will need to be changed.

MY propane grill will not come up to the 500 plus degrees for grilling.


There are four possible ways this problem could occur.
1. The unit is old and the burner tubes are plugged, either with rust or spider eggs [yes, they like it their in the winter]. Parts are available at Home Depot and Lowes.
2. The unit is designed for either Natural Gas, and you are using Propane. Conversion can be done.
3. Your gas flow is not forceful enough from the Propane tank. Could be an old tank or a bad regulator. Replace bad parts.
4. Your unit isn't getting enough oxygen because there is too much ash and grease under the grill blocking the airflow. Clean the grill.
