Re: im trying to find a new regulator for my infarasonic...
I searched for months to find a regulator for mine. I ended up buying one from Home Depot, taking it apart, changing out the fitting with the one from my old part and then using it. Good luck on finding one. I do internet research for a living and couldnt find one. BTW, to my knowledge, infra-sonic does not have a website and there is no knowledge of a parent company to search for parts from.

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!!
You're missing the hose/regulator assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. It runs about $30,00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.
You got part of the solution correct. The 5 minute part, but you skipped a couple of steps.
Turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, Slowly (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, turn the burner ON and push the ignitor button. When the burner lights, turn it to it's highest setting. If you have 2-burners, light the second the same way you did the first one. Do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.
If the above didn't solve the problem. you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. As the OPD Valve in the gas tank, permanently locked up the regulator. Since your is a brand new grill with warranty that's enforce, contact the manufacturer for a replacement. Have you proof of Purchase handy, when you call them.
Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!
Short of carefully using a pipe wrench, there's not much else you can do. Make sure the tank valve is fully OFF, before attempting removal. Once it's disconnected, you will need to purchase a new Hose/Regulator Assembly. They are not expensive and can be purchased at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take the old one with you for comparison purposes.
You can purchase the regulator/hose assembly (which is what you'll need) from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Having your old one with you for comparison will help. But, I must ask you, why do you think you need a new regulator?
If what you're looking for is the Regulator/Tank Hose Assembly, you can purchase that for any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills. They are pretty much a universal fii, but be sure to take your old one with you for comparison purposes of the hose length. A little longer is ok, but shorter is not.
If that's not what you're looking for, you can purchase replacement parts directly form Char-Broil.
Most major hardware stores that sell grills have a universal conversion quick connect hose and gas line adapter fitting. That.. you can probably handle. Next you need to install a quick connect adapter from the house gas line or meter (unless one is already there for you). Otherwise you may want to call your local gas company or fireplace/grill store to send someone out.
Last all LP to NG conversions require the orifices on the back of your grill's valves to be changed to larger holes. (LP has more pressure thus small holes and NG must be larger.) The trick is getting the precise numbered drill bit diameter(45-55) for your particular grill. You can look on your manufacturers web site to provide this info. Often times they can sell you a new set of orifices, predrilled, to the exact diameter for conversion. Drilling out orifices is usually cheaper and pretty easy if you know where to find the bits (internet or specialty tool store). Sometimes your local gas company or fireplace/grill shop will provide this service as well.
Hope this helps, and good luck.
