Question about Ducane 455 inch 2 - 3 Burner with rotisserie Grill

1 Answer

Propane Problems My grill uses propane bottles. It is new and worked fine through the first bottle. After I replaced the initial bottle, gas was slow coming out and would not get hot. Then I had no flame. Second bottle was definitely not empty. Bought another bottle (third) thinking I need a spare anyway. This bottle worked the first time. Now, it too is not getting enough gas. My suspicion is that I may have slightly damaged (stripped) ventilator gasket. What do you suggest?

Re: Propane Problems

The salesman at ACE Hardware told me I needed a grill tip cleaner. Seems the outflow valve from the tank can get crusted and there is a device called a gril tip cleaner that can help restore the gas flow to a higher level.

Propane tank release

The threads on a propane grill are left hand threads. You would turn the handle as if you were trying to tighten a normal thread. Normal is righty tighty, lefty losey. This is righty to losey for your BBQ bottle.

Low flow of gas to 1st burner, if second burner is turned on flame goes out. bottle full

First disconnect tank. Hook back up and open very slowly. These new valves on tanks have a shut down if you open valve to fast, causing tank valve to think it is leaking, it slows down flow of propane. Always open tank valve slow when turning on grill. If this does not solve problem then regulator is going bad and need to be replaced.

My grill would not preheat to proper temperature for several uses.Then it would not light,there was no gas smell from the burners.

Sounds like your propane bottle is empty...or maybe you have a bad regulator. Disconnect your propane bottle and pick it up; if it is very light, you need to get the bottle filled (or exchange it for a full one, depending on the type of bottle you have). If the bottle has plenty of gas, change out your regulator.

Very little gas getting to burners Full bottle of propane Acts the same way as when the propane bottle is getting empty This grill is only about 6 months old

You either have clogged burners and they need to be cleaned. Clogged inlet line to the burners. (This can come from trash, spiderwebs etc in the connection, kinked line etc.) or the regulator is malfunctioning.

Burners will not light

Check to see if the bottle is full or empty ? could be a number of problems . Bottle empty ? bottle wasn't purged properly or you may have spiders that have nested in the propane lines which is a common problem.

No propane flow to grill using bulk bottle system.

the office that is open on the bottom of the burner sound like a spider has taken home to.. the hole.... This happened to mine. a small pipe cleaner or wire will break it up...try that. also did you feel the top of the tank regulator and see if it has froze. try turning the tank upside down and turn the unit on.... this may also help by forcing the spider debris out.
