Make sure valve is fully turned on, disconnect & reconnect tank. Sometimes when a store fills the tank they adjust a small screw at the valve. This screw is turned counterclockwise to open and clockwise to close. See if you can turn it open with a straight common screwdriver a little.

I've had my grill for a few years and when i turned it on last night, i could barely see the flames and i had both burners on hi. I cleaned (took a wire brush) to where the flames get out and still...


You may have to recheck the tank for full. If you forgot to turn off the tank after the last time you used the grill, the tank could have leaked down. I always keep a spare full tank for just those types of problems. If the tank is full, then the regulator may have a problem. That grill should be able to get over 300 degrees.

Coleman heater model 5445c700 propane camp heater wont light. It did work fine. When I hold the knob in the light position you can hear gas but it barely ignites then goes out. I've tried new gas and...


If you're using a 20lb propane tank (Gas Grill Tank), that may be the problem. Turn off the propane tank at the tank valve and disconnect it from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the heater hose to the tank. Turn the propane tank valve on very,very slowly until it's all the way open. Try lighting your heater now. If the pilot flame height returned to normal, that was the problem.

FYI - The Thermocouple has nothing to do with the length of the pilot flame. It's a safety feature that stops the gas if the pilot flame goes out for any reason.

Hope that solves your problem. Please let me know.

I have a 40,000 BTU propane reddy heater. I just refilled the tank and attached it to the heater like I normally do but now when I start it it will run fine then it will flare up and shoot out orange flame...


Did they over fill the tank and you are getting pure liquid to the heater..... Sounds like when you use a propane bottle hand torch and tip it up side down the flame turns orange and goes out. Also the regulator vent may have gotten plugged with dirt or ice. May try and bleed some of the propane pressure off of the top of the tank....... But make sure you have it outside and plenty of ventaltion and no open flame any where...... Propane is lighter than air so it settles down on the ground at the lowest point.....hope this helps..... Or you could take it back to your suppler and get a different tank.

My propane ank is full, but when I turn it on high, the flame is barely lit. When I change it from high to low and back to high, the flame level never changes.


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.

All 4 burners light, but only barely even when all are turned on high.


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!

Only enough gas flow for 1 of 3 burners


Shut off the tank and remove it from the grill. open all valves. close all valves. Reconnect tank to cooker and SLOWLY open the valve a hair. Then retry.Something in the dang newer safety tanks cause this phenom.

No flame...no gas flow


Take the tank back off and open all the valves on the cooker. Close all the valves on the cooker. Put the tank back on the cooker. Open the tank just barely. Light the burners. The valve cannot be turned wide open on the newer grills.
