Gas regulator won't let gas flow

I have a Calflame bbq (ng) equipped with a gaap poppet gas regulator. Every time I use the grill I have to reset the gas regulator by unscrewing the cap and pushing the spring controlled diaphagm back down. The grill works fine for the day but I have to repeat the process the next time I use the grill. What cause the regulator to act this way?

Turn gas tank off and disconnect connection fron tank valve. Re-connect and turn gas on. Check for leaks with soapy water solution. Tighten if needed. Some regulators will detect leaks and cut off gas.

Can i get parts to convert my capn cook 4 burner bbq grill to lp


The BBQ's Galore grills are the only ones that are approved to be field converted. All you need a 4 LP Gas Burner Orifices and a Hose Regulator Assembly to hook to a LP Gas grill tank. You can buy the orifices from BBQ's Galore and the Hose/Regulator Assembly from any hardware store or home improvement center that sells grills & accessories for about $30.00. Gas grill burner orifices are pretty universal, so any LP Gas ones should work.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Weber Silver B grill that I purchased 12 years ago.I would like to convert it from propane to Natural Gas. I have been told I cant! Is this true? If not, where can I get a conversion kit? Thanks!


Weber stopped selling conversion kits due to some legal action in 2008. There are no longer kits available. What you would have to do to covert it is order a replacement gas valve for the NG version of your grill just to get the orifices. Then you have to replace the LP regulator with a NG regulator. Typically most NG grills do NOT have a regulator but local building codes will require a NG regulator and a different gas line hose.
Conversion of a BBQ gas valve to NG is a matter of drilling out the orifice to a larger hole in an LP orifice.
You will not find anyone that will perform this conversion for you due to legal liabilites.
If you want to convert it... you will either have to order the whole gas control valve for NG or drill out the orifices yourself in your current gas valve hoping your got the orifice hole size correct when you drilled it. Mind you all liability for doing this lies solely with you.

Can a weber kettle be run on natural gas


They can be run on natural gas however since 2009 Webber stopped selling conversion kits for their grills. (Liability issues) Anyway the regulator in most cases and all of the burner orifices need to be changed. On high end grills it is a matter of changing the regulator and adjusting the burner orifices and air flow to obtain the proper burner fire. You may be able to contact a BBQ specialty shop and they may sell you a conversion kit after you sign a liability release form. Most will insist that you bring the grill to the store for conversion AND that they install the NG regulator at the place of use. By law.... all gas conversions must be performed by a licensed technician.

Grill won't turn on


The new style2_bing.gif OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem
IF not you might want to remove the cap (white) on your regulator and try slowly adjusting the regulator, make small adjustments and try the BBQ My Weber if I set the front and back burners to MED I get right at 350 degrees in 60 degree outdoor temps. Adjusting the regulator will take some time to get it right but If it is not your tank it is most likely your regulator out of adjustment

Converting Weber Genesis Silver B from LP to Natural Gas


Hello...I have the same grill and want to do the same conversion...From my research, you need to drill out the three orifices with a size #53 wire gauge drill bit. ( this resizes each orifice to 12000 BTU's each, which the grill is rated at 36000 BTU's).Then remove the existing hose and regulator. Replace the hose with a Quick disconnect compression fitted hose. The NG supply needs to have a pressure regulator installed, with a shutoff and quick disconnect fitting installed. Connect the hoes from the grill to the supply, and fire it up...THIS IS WHAT I INTEND ON DOING TO MY GRILL,BUT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>

BBQ Galore Capt'n Cook 4 burner gas grill won't get hot.


Most modern gas regulators have a safety feature to prevent gas left on. If you shut off the tank first and then turn off the burners, it will trigger and keep the gas flow at a very reduce flow to prevent you from turning on the tank again with the burners left on and not realizing it. Turn everything off and then turn on tank first, followed by the burners and this will solve most problems of a low flame or a bbq that won't get hot.
