I have owned the Fire Magic A660 for a year and a half. The main burners have never worked right. Sometimes they light 25% and other times up to 90% but never even. I've adjusted the air, I've cleaned...


If your using a 20lb grill tank, that may be where the problem lies. All 20lb LP refillable tanks are now equipped with an OPD Valve. It's a safety feature prevents over filling of the tank. However, it can cause problems for gas grills if not turned on properly.

If this is what you're using here's what you need to do:

  • Turn off the tank and disconnect the grill hose from it.
  • Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
  • Very, very slowly turn the tank valve on. When I say slowly, I mean VERY slowly.
  • Once the valve is fully open, light each burner one at a time and turn them all up to the highest setting.
Are all the burners, burning properly? If so, you just solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve very, very slowly when turning it on.

If you're not using a propane grill tank and your supply is hard piped from your household supply of propane gas. You may very well have a pressure and gas volume problem, depending on the length & size of the run gas piping. This will have to be determined by your propane provider. But, I can tell you this, if the gas piping is not at least 1/2" OD, that's were your problem lies.

If you're using Natural Gas from your household supply. Was the grill properly converted to operate on Natural gas? If it wasn't, that definitely is the problem.

Hope this helps you solve your problem. "Happy Grilling."

  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally

Grill does not get hot. I have a fresh bottle of propane. Hose is not kinked. Grill is maybe 6 - 10 years old.


hi,
When a new or newly filled propane tank is attached to your gas grill, the OPD is usually at its maximum limit position above a tank filled to capacity. Propane may come through the valve too strongly due to the additional pressure of being full and the OPD displacement. The propane tank goes into check and limits gas flow when too much pressure hits the valve. Some grill manufacturers provide instructions for this in the users manuals but most people do not read the manual. Many grillers believe replacement parts are needed and burners, ignitors and regulators get replaced without reason. Depending on how efficient the grill is operating, some grills attached to a tank in check will not ignite and others will light but cannot reach cooking temperatures because the tank has limited the amount of propane released. Sometimes the food will be unable to exceed 200 degrees in temperature because the propane tank is in check.


Gas grill replacement parts are available and are sometimes necessary, low or no gas flow indicates a different typr of repair. Most grillers accept instructions and the problem is corrected in minutes -- but believe it or not I have had a few insist on purchasing replacement parts.
How do I fix grill?
To reset the check valve and get back to cooking on your gas barbecue grill, first
turn everything off. Turn off the grill, the rotisserie, the side burner and the LP gas cylinder tank. Once everything is turned off disconnect the propane tank from the gas grill regulator by unscrewing it or pulling the quick-release on older or retro-fitted propane cylinders. Now turn the grill on. I know, it is dis-connected from the gas tank but we want to ensure that the pressure in the gas lines or any gas in the burners is released. Leave all grill burners in the on position for 3 - 5 minutes before turning them off. Make sure. Most gas grill valves must be pushed in to turn them and if turning is attempted without pushing the knob, they will not turn to the "on" position. With the grill, et al turned off reconnect the propane tank and slowly turn the hand wheel to the open position.
Slowly. The trick here is to turn the hand wheel slowly. Propane in a new or very full tank will be under more pressure, especially with the OPD floating in position. The extra pressure will come through the tank valve stronger. Turn the gas tank slowly allowing small increments of propane to enter the grill.


Once this is complete, you should be able to turn the grill on high and ignite your gas grill burner. Your cooking heat should be back to normal and cooking times decreased. If the problem persists, try this process again to make sure you followed every step. The check valve exists to save your life if there is a leak in any of the gas fittings. Constant check valve issues could imply a gas leak and a visit from your local gas grill service technician may be necessary.
To find a leak, turn the grill valves to the off position and the gas tank valve to the full on position. This should pressurize the gas line. Spray soapy water on all the fittings and look for bubbles just like checking for the leak in a flat tire.
Do not attempt to correct a gas leak on your own. While a check valve error when your gas grill will not get hot or will not ignite is a user education error and an issue corrected by learning about your propane tank, a gas leak should be corrected by a licensed gas service technician. When you are grilling, turn the propane tank on first and then turn on your grill. When you are done cooking, turn the gas tank off first and then turn off the grill valves. The process releases the pressure in the gas grill hose and manifold which allows the gas tank to release pressure by filling these lines. Read the safety features of your gas grill, clean it when necessary and replace used and failing parts. Aside from that be safe, eat well and have fun.

thanks.

Gas Not Flowing


Try this. Turn tank off, open all three burners for a minute or 2. Close burners. Open tank very slowly. Open primary burner, (usually the front burner) and try to relight. Should work, but if not check that valve is secured to tank and check for leaks with soapy water.

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.

Propane gas flame is not hot. Do I adjust the air


Here is something to try if it is LP Gas:

Here is a Tip to fix a grill that not getting hot:
1. Turn the gas valve knob off. then close LP tank valve knob.
2. Unscrew the plastic hose coupling knob from the LP tank. You may hear a slight "hissing" sound as pressure is released this is normal.
3.Wait a minute then screw the coupling knob back on to LP Tank.
4.With lid open.slowly open LP tank valve.
5.Relight the grill the proper way by turning gas valve knob to ON position while turning the igniter knob at the same time.
6.After you are sure the grill is lit preheat the grill for 30 minutes.

This was called purging the line or releasing the air out of the line.

Another thing your orifice could be clogged with spiders or dirt. If it is LP gas check to make sure your hose is not kinked.

Gas line seems to have air trapped inside. How does one clear it?


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.
