Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Medallion Vermont Casting model CF9080

The burners on my grill do not come to full strength. I replaced the gas tank with a newly filled tank. Since I was having pressure issues, I had the attendant purge air from the tank while he filled it. With 3 of 5 burners lite the flames struggled to stay lite. The temperature stopped at 250 degree after 30 minutes. When I light the side burner it pulls gas from the other burners to a point where they almost extinguish themselves. I can't see an clogged lines. The outside temperature is 40 degrees. Could the regulator be an issue? What else should I do? Thanks, Harcourt

Sounds like the regulator. there isn't much of anything left to go wrong! the gas comes out of a very small orifice in the burner tube and mixes with atmospheric air before being burned at the jet.

I have a Vermont Casting VM450SSP Grill that needs a new Hose Regulator-S/B Valve Assembly. I have ordered two separate times what "Appliance Factory Parts" thinks is the part I need and both...


This ma=y be a case of changes in parts for your VC Grill. The ownership of Vermont Castings changed 6 years ago, when Majestic Fireplace, who was then the owner went bankrupt and Monesson Hearth products bought VC in the bankruptcy. Shortly there after, Monesson made some sweeping changes to the grill line (your model was discontinued) and really up graded what Majestic Fireplace had done with that line of grills. Overall, they started building a better quality grill.

Unless you have a piped in high pressure propane gas system, the one that Appliance Factory Parts furnished you should work fine (based on what I saw on their website). In addition, if you purchased your grill, prior to the change in 20lb LP Gas Grill Tanks Valves, 6 years ago. Some manufacturers changed their grill hoses to conform with the new OPD Valve grill tanks. It wasn't required, they just did it, to avoid regulators locking up, when the tank valve is opened to fast.

Hope this helped answer and solve the problem for you. Happy Grilling!!

I have a Vermont Casting 3 burner BBQ, Model VM400XBP, 36,000BTU grill that won't go above 300 degrees? How can I fix it?


It could be something as simple as a triggered safety feature within the gas tank itself. These new tanks will react to the gas leaving the tank at a high flow rate causing low burner temps. To remedy: shut off gas and remove tank. Open and close all valves on the grill. Reattach the tank and SLOWLY open the valve 2 turns. Then retry. See page 13

Take the tank loose from the grill and open all the burners. Then close the burners and reconnect the tank.
SLOWLY open the tank just a little bit and light the burners with a stick lighter. That's what I do. Those new tans have a safety device in them that locks off the gas if the tank tilted even slightly or the gas valves are opened too fast.
