Inadequate flame and heat

The cooker seems to be inconsistent with its flame patterns. I was wondering if I'm having a regulator issue or I possibly need to replace the burners. I love the grill, but its become a problem lately. Randy

I'd change the regulator, clean the burners and the surrounding area. Make sure that the air intakes around the burners aren't blocked , plugged..
Also check the gas orifices for cleanliness... outdoor grilles are nutorious for bug hotels... these little critters move in, lay eggs and it can screw up the burners, orifices... I've several times needed to remove orifices to clean the inside of mini spider nests... Look them over closely..

Flame size will not regulate. Authorized Jenn-Air repairman came out and replaced the regulator and I still have inconsistent flame size on all four burners. About 1/2 the time it's like it's...


What other appliances work on gas? The furnace? The water heater? A gas dryer? How much propane is in the tank? I wonder how the cooktop would work on a seperate tank? If it worked perfect on another tank I would say you have a plumbing problem.

Have a frigidaire gas stove has worked great for 6 years. Now we are getting a strong smell of gas when it is heating up or cooking. Have checked to make sure flame is on and it is. It also seams like it...


Try changing out the regulator for the stove. Does the flame seem weaker than it used to? If so, your regulator is probably going out and the gas you smell is the residual leaking out when the stove is on.

Kenmore lp gas sealed burner stove,when opening or closing the oven door the top burners decrease in flame size and go out frequently.


This seems like a pressure regulator / flow problem. If you are running more than one appliance from bottled gas this can occurr if the supply pipe is not of sufficient size. When 'wafting the door' you are increasing air flow to the oven burners which in turn will consume more gas to balance the burn, this starves other burners that are running at the time.
Cure; increase regulator pressure (remove the foil cover to expose the screw) with the top burners alight adjust the screw 1/4 turn at a time until the flames are bright blue at heart and organge tipped. Increase as much as you can without the falme distorting away from blue/orange. If this doesn't cure it you may need to increase the size of your supply pipe to 15mm so that the volume of gas is greater and then split it off to normal lpg pipe to each apliance thereby creating a more even flow of supply. Often a system using say heating and gas fire is perfectly fine but add another appliance like a cooker or change your cooker to one which has more powerful burners and you can expose weaknesses in the flow system.

Hi I have a rinnai flame fire royal model ib35etr It keeps going out and flashes number 12 on the screen we are moving and packed the book


I had this same problem last year and went through all the checklist in poshpoms suggestions ( I am on mains Gas ). The issue was caused by the Flame rods. Near the 2 pilots at the front and the back. Those small rods each that 'senses' the flame become inadequate, so they were replaced with a new pilot assembly from Rinnai that had longer rods and better coverage. Issue was fixed. Good Luck.

The heat turns off after 3 seconds of flame.


There is a flame sensor failure.

Here is the ignition sequence for a furnace. This will help you understand what is happening/not happening.

Thermostat2.gif calls for heat.

draft inducer motor (DIM) starts drawing draft through heat exchanger.

Pressure switch detects proper operation of DIM, and sends signal to board to begin ignition.
(it detects negative pressure)

Ignitor starts ignition attempt and gas valve sends gas to burners.

Upon ignition, flame sensor detects flame and sends signal to board stopping ignition sequence and continuing gas flow for heat mode operation until thermostat is satisfied.

During this sequence the blower motor is brought on, and by using a series of temperature limit switches, the system assures that the unit is operating properly.
(If the blower is not operating, or the airflow is inadequate, the heat exchanger will overheat and trip one or more temp limit switches.)

There is also a "rollout" switch that detects improper flame pattern "rolling out" into the controls compartment.

Now, to apply that to your situation.

If the flame sensor does not sense flame, it shuts down the furnace to prevent a dangerouse gas build up.

With most modern glow coil ignition systems you have one of two failures.

1) the flame sensor is bad and needs to be replaced.

2) the control board is not proccesing the signal from the flame sensor and shuts the system down. In that case the board would need to be replaced.

There is a possibility that a temperature limit or roll out switch is breaking the curcuit, but that would be quite unusual to happen consistantly at three seconds.

Unless you have the ability and tools to test the snesor and board, the next step would be to replace the sensor first, and then the board if that does not fix it.

Inconsistent heat problems Weber Grill


If your propane gas delivery system is equipped with a pressure regulator, check it or replace it. If no regulator, check the following:

* The gas jets for any obstructions, including carbon build up (they can be cleaned with an automotive fuel injector or carburetor cleaner with a lttle help from a brush bristle - do not try and use a drill or other mechanical means)

* The gas connections, and make sure they are all tight

* The gas manifold(s) to be sure they aren't partially obstructed with insect nests, especially cocoons

* The burner(s) to be sure they are clean and that the flame is even
