These 20K btu heaters are designed to be used with 100# tanks or larger...but in emergency and small periods of time you can use a 20# cylinder, but REMEMBER, a gas tank cannot be inside your location where the heater is being used. That is against ALL codes, and if you have an issue, you have no warranty from the Manufacturer. You would buy a rubber gas hose with a hi-lo pressure regulator to use from the tank to the heater, with a 3/8 inch connection at the heater. You must also use the gas tape/dope to seal that fitting at the internal regulator of the unit, checking for leaks before your first use.

replace the fuel filter which on the drivers side, under the truck, by the rear passenger's side door. If nothing still, then you need to check fuel pressure with a guage, about $45 for the tool. I've used it about 5 times in 1 year. You will have to do some research on the proper starting psi. But it sounds like a fuel pump problem, which is in the fuel tank. I've changed one by myself, not too terrribly hard. But make sure the fuel tank is near empty, two bolts to undo, that hold the two tank straps up, get a jack with a wide plate, because you cant drop the tank all the way to the ground, otherwise you will rip the wires off. I replaced the pump on my 99 k1500 Suburban, 5 years ago. You also will need either plastic or metal fuel line disconnect tools (they are a pain to disconnnect). The pump costs about $275. Go with a pricey one with a reliable manufacturer, you only want to do this job once, per 20 years.

My grill will not light. I've tried lighting with the ignitor and with a lighter. I've tried 2 different tanks, nothing. It worked about 3 days ago. Is the regulator bad?


Gary, here's what you need to do to solve the problem.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first & turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and the fa,e height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner exactly
the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.
Always remember to turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly, as the regulator is locked up. You can pick one up from any home center or hardware store that sell grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem, Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

I have a Kenmore grill that is 4 years old. Over the last three years I am running thru propane at a crazy rate. The kicker was this spring when I used it twice and the third time it wouldn't light. ...


Well, lotacritters, you've got a real mystery here. First off, the ignitors would play no role in the gas consumption. Plus, it sounds like you always turn the tank valve OFF, after each use (?). So that's not it. So, the problem lies someplace else. I suspect, that the tank was really not empty, although it appeared that it was, when the burner(s) wouldn't light.

Let me explain: All 20 Lb LP Gas Grill Tanks e equipped with an Over Fill Protection Device (OPD), which is safety feature. However, sometimes it does cause problems with the grill's regulator, if the tank valve is not opened properly.

So, here's what you need to try:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.

2. Disconnect the hose from the tank & wait 5 minutes.

3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion,
slow).

4. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look
correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way.

Now, do all the flame heights look correct and are they the right color? If so, you solved the problem. Because, here's what was happening in the past: When you turned the tank valve ON, you did it as your normally would do it, quickly. When that happened the OPD Valve locked up the grill's regulator and made it appear that you were out of gas. When, in fact, you weren't.

But, doing what I recommended didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly, as the regulator is permanently locked up. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Just remember to ALWAYS open the tank valve very, very slowly.

Hope this helped to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Mike, there can be some pressure problems, but it's not the new tank. However, it does cause the problem and here's how you resolve it.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burn to HIGH.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can pick one up at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. It will run you about $30.00 (+/-) .

How do I connect my propane gas grill up to the 1/2 inch gas connection that goes to my large propane tank that is also used for the gas firplace. The large tank does have a regulator. This would elimate...


Thomas, unless you have flaring tools, 1/2" flexible copper refrigerant type piping, the necessary flared couplings, unions, inline shutoff valve, etc., as well as an extensive knowledge of pipe fitting and installation of gas appliances, I don't recommend you under taking this as a DIY project. There are just to many things that can go wrong and is best left to the pros. I am sure your propane provider can do it for you. After all, you'll be using more propane and they like that. With that said, it can not be directly hard piped to the grill. Either you or the gas company can provide a 12' long, rubber, quick disconnect gas hose, that will go from the ON/OFF gas line valve to the grill. As that is a national code requirement.

Good luck and Happy Grilling.

My Kenmore grill is using gas up real fast. We've used two tanks in less than a month. What could be causing this problem? Last year we used one take all season and we have not been grilling any more.


1. Your tank may be defective and not emptying properly.
2. You may have a problem with the connection from the regulator to the tank.
3. If you are refilling tank, make sure they are filling to a full 20 lbs.
4. If you are exchanging tank at Lowes,etc, they are only now filled with 13.5 to 15 lbs rather than 20 to cut costs. You are not getting the amount of LP that you used to.
I would buy a new tank and have it purged and filled at a propane dealer and go from there.

Having trouble shampooing


I found this on a website. Hope it helps others...

by Mainelyvacs in: Kirby
  • First a short explanation of how the Kirby shampoo system works: Kirby uses a “Dry Foam” type of shampoo. Basically, it spreads a shampoo foam solution on the surface of your carpet. This foam needs to stay on the surface of the carpet until it is completely dry (usually 1 to 2 hours depending on temperature and humidity) As the foam dries, it soaks up grease and dirt. You then vacuum the carpet and up comes the shampoo residue along with the absorbed dirt and grease. It does a very good job on the surface but will not extract stains from the bottom of the carpet or carpet pad. Several other brands such as Electrolux, Hoover and Koblenz make Carpet Cleaning machines that use the same system.
    So, you’ve read your manual, you’ve removed the carpet cleaning nozzle and the bag assembly from your Kirby, you’ve installed your shampoo tank and carpet shampooing nozzle tray and you start to shampoo but all you get on your carpet is a puddle of soapy water and no foam. Here’s a few things to look for:
  • Make sure you are using a Dry Foam Shampoo(preferably Kirby) and NOT an extraction shampoo, the Rug Doctor shampoo you had left over from your last rental will not work.
  • Make sure you have the correct mixture. If you are using Kirby Dry foam shampoo you simply fill the tank with water and put a tank cap full of shampoo in with the water. You can use other brands of “Dry Foam” shampoo, but the mixture ratio may be different, so read the label first.
  • Don’t reuse last year’s leftover mixture, it’s probably no good.
  • Make sure a family member didn’t pour any leftover mixture back into the empty shampoo bottle - further diluting a mixture will not produce any foam.
  • Don’t use shampoo that’s seen extreme temperatures.
  • Check the tank and make sure that the sponge filter is in place and if it is in place that it is not deteriorated. The sponge filter is located under the tank at the point where you attach the tank to the hole that you removed the bag assembly from.
  • Check the hose that runs from the tank to the nozzle. It should have a screen in the end that attaches to the tank (older models had a cloth screen with a metal retainer, models after 1989 have a 1 piece metal and plastic screen.
