SOURCE: Grill mysteriously not working, gas tank full, can't smell or hear gas come to burner

Go to Dome Depot. Lowes or whomever your large hardware store is and get and new regulator and connecting kit (it is probably the regulator), they are not expensive. If this does not do it, it may be the valve on the broiler, but not likely.

Why won't the burners light even when I smell gas and hear igniter clicking?


Bill, two things possibly going on here that are common with an aging grill. First you need to turn off the fuel tank and set it aside. you mention that a clicking can be heard when pushing the igniter button which usually indicates good battery but if you have never changed it you may want to just as a good measure. Unscrew the bottom and you should find AA or AAA battery behind it. Now with battery good and the igniter generating a fast load clicking sound you want to get down and follow the wire that runs from the the back side of the igniter push button down inside and usually under the burner tubes ending out at one end of each burner. What happens when you press the igniter switch is, an electrical current is sent down the wire and when it reaches the end the current jumps to the closest metal it can find creating a spark.so you need to insure that the end of the wire is close to where the flame is generated but not so close that that you cant see a spark. Make sure the end of the wire is bare and clean as is the area on the burner where it arcs Now do this to all for burners. Turn all the knobs on the grill off and connect the tank. Make sure the lid is open now, and slowly open the valve on the tank. I say slowly like a ten count from close to full open. what can happen if you crank the tank valve open too quickly or with the grills valves open a vapor-lock effect can be created greatly reducing the flow of fuel from the tank. Iv'e seen many of the uninformed return 1/2 full tanks due to this problem. If you notice week flame or no flame but smell gas ALWAYS SHUT OFF VALVE ON TANK IMMEDIATELY KEEP LID OPEN AND LET THE AREA VENT BEFORE TRYING AGAIN lest you be the one being barbecued. Good Luck

Grill won't start


if your sure the propane tank is full, and the valve is open, (counter clockwise, and the control knob is on? you should not only smell it after 20 seconds, but if you put your ear near the grill you should hear a sound like air leaking.If you hear nothing and smell nothing, good chance there is a blockage in the line, or the burner holes are filled with drippings. First off, get a wire brush and scrub the burners where you see the small holes that the flame normally comes out of, then try the grill again, if still nothing (and your 100% sure the tank is full, the tank is on, and the control knob is on high) you may need to start taking apart the grill, looking for a blockage, many times its below the control knob where you will see an adjustable screen, spider webs and such will get in there and block the flow. Remember to not do any of that with the tank on the grill, remove the tank first.;

Side burner lights but not main burner on gas grill


If you smell gas, don't attempt to light the burner. Instead, turn the gas off and inspect the fuel tank, lines and burners once the smell of has has cleared. Always grill where you have adequate ventilation and perform all repairs only after the grill has fully cooled from use.

Hello My side burner is leaking gas. I can hear the gas flowing even thought the knob is in the off position. But it doesn't click like all the other burners. Eddie


If the gas you hear is coming from the burner, rather than the side burner gas supply hos, the control knob may be stuck in the "IN" position. Turn the gas tank OFF, before attempting any repairs and disconnect the hose from the tank.

Now that there is no pressure on the side burner control knob, try using it as you normally would. What you're looking for is full function of the knob. Push it it and turn it to the light position. Does the knob pop back out when you release it? If it does, that's a good sign. If memory service me correctly, the gas supply line to the side burner as a quick connect on the hose to connect it to the burner. if so, disconnect and reconnect it to the burner. Does the quick connect slide back into place and connect properly? If not, that is what's leaking. But, to make sure, there needs to be gas going to the grill. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, test the side burner hose connection and the hose (squirrels like to chew on the hose) by brushing on a soap & water solution to check for leaks. If you see bubbles that grow in size, that's a leak. Turn the gas tank back OFF. The side burner hose will need to be replaced.

If there were no leaks on the connection, check the burner knob for operation. Does it operate like it should with no smell of leaking gas? If not, the control knob valve will need to be replaced.

The parts you may need can be purchased from Ducane Customer Service 1-800-382-2637.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Need to know how to reset the LP Gas flow for a Webber 300 BBQ


If you just installed a new, full tank of propane and turned it on and the burners wouldn't light.

Turn the tank off, disconnect from the grill hose (you'l hear a whooshing sound and smell gas, but that's alright). Wait several minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the gas valve on very very slowly, until it's full open. Now, try lighting your grill.

Remember, you will need to turn the tank valve on very very slowly every time you change tanks or turn the tank off after grilling.

What happened was this ... When you turned the tank on quickly it locked up the grill's gas regulator. Doing what suggested usually solves the problem. Oh, one other thing ... be sure your tank is not empty. The grill you have uses a lot of gas.

I have a full propane tank. I bbq'd about 3 weeks ago, same full bottle. Grill will not light. Good spark at ignitor. Used lighter and lit for a few seconds with low flame on high. No other burners will...


Hello,
You may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Turn it back off, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn the valve back on. Light one burner at a time and turn to low before lighting the next. If you are hearing and smelling gas with the tank on but all grill knobs off, don't use the grill. You may have a leaking grill valve, regulator or hose. If you are only smelling gas with the knobs on, it's possible you have a clogged burner or orifice from bug nests, spiderwebs, etc and need to clean it out first. Hope this helps. Douglas

Our grill doesnt seem to be getting enough gas to stay lit. when you turn the burners on your hear the gas coming through for 2 seconds..then nothing, and it wont stay lit


How are you turning the grill on and off? It sounds like a vapor-lock. Try this: first unhook the regulator and crack the valve on the tank open...if you hear and smell gas coming out, good, close the valve and re-connect the regulator then open the gas valve then turn the burner on and light it...then shut it off by closing the tank valve first and let the burners go out then turn off your burner valves...try that and let me know what happens.

Go to Dome Depot. Lowes or whomever your large hardware store is and get and new regulator and connecting kit (it is probably the regulator), they are not expensive. If this does not do it, it may be the valve on the broiler, but not likely.
