What is the life expectancy of a gas grill pressure regulator?


I've been in the propane business 28 years and have found regulators from the 1950's still in use today. Regulator manufacturers tell us they should be replaced after 25 years. It should typically outlast the grill itself, which often require new burners, cooking grids, etc. The hissing sound can just be the flow of gas thru the regulator. If you smell gas however, then you should replace it. If it is affecting the pressure to the burners and not getting hot enough to cook properly, then replace it as well.

My weber grill (I think Model Silver B) has started to make a small hissing sound when I turn on all three burners. Just replaced the propane tank and it seems to be doing the same thing. Any...


Depending on how loud the hissing is! If it isn't very loud it is probably corrosion on the burners. If your blames are more yellow than blue, you have corrosion building up. So I suggest using a wire brush to clean it up and then using a small ice pick to clean the gas outlet.

My propane furnace sounds like a blowtorch when it kicks on but it also happens to my cooking stove


Hi, working with natural gas and converting them over to propane for the country folk, I do indeed know the sound. You might want to take a look at the burner section for any signs of carbon,soot, build up any where.If the gas pressure has changed for some reason, you will get this blow torch sound.You would need the correct meter to check or measure the inches of W.C. Inlet pressure not to exceed 1/2p.s.I. Outlet for propane has changed over the last 10 years, you will now find on the MGV (main gas valve) for propane is almost the same as with natural gas.W.C. is a measurement used in reading gas pressures, stands for inches of water-column. Recommended pressures are well marked in manuals and on valve its self. Right at 2.5 to 4" w.c. So, check for carbon build up and clean if needed.If it burns radical, pressures should be checked with a gas pressure test kit.Yellow Jacket makes a good one. I hope this has been of some help to you, Sincerely,

Veranda gas grill - won't light or low flame


One of the major problems with propane gas grills, including the Masterbuilt Veranda, is the pressure regulator. They get to where they do not release enough propane. Some, most, have an adjustment screw that will let you correct these problems. I think I replaced my Veranda regulator with another older pressure regulator from an old grill. Makes you crazy if you don't know this.

My weber q grill has a problem. When I light it the flame does not burn all around and the food does not get equal heat. How can I fix this.


Assuming the burner's clean, try this solution that worked for me:
Often with a big bottle, people turn the gas off and on at the big bottle and leave the grill valve open. That makes the regulator see a low pressure on its output, which is a potential leak indication. It goes into "bypass". Try turning off the tank, turning off the grill valve, and turning on the tank, then waiting 20-ish seconds before turning the grill valve on.
If the burner's dirty, I take mine out of the grill and run it through my oven's self-cleaning cycle.

Loud and hot


The first thing to check is the orafice where the gas enters the burner. There should be a small hole in the tip where it enters the burner tubing. If this tip has come off or if the hole (manufacturing defect) has become enlarged. Then the gas flow will be too high.

Alternately the pressure regulator which attaches to your tank may have a damaged to stuck internal mechanism. This will cause too much gas to flow which can cause the issues that you describe. This can only be solved by replacing the regulator and hose assembly.

Noise / vibration from gas regulator


This is on the Weber site, under support. I have been experiencing the same problem and have not used it because of it.

Humming or whistling from the regulator: Outside temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and the gas level within the tank may cause the rubber diaphragm inside the regulator to vibrate, making a humming or whistling sound. Although this sound may be alarming, this is NOT dangerous as long as it is not accompanied by the smell of gas. If the humming sound persists, a change in atmospheric conditions will eventually stop the vibration.

Flame Adjustment


Make sure the unit is operating on the correct gas, Natural or Propane (LP). The sound you are experiencing is either not enough gas and the flame is burning inside the burner port(s) or too much gas and the flame is much larger than it has to be. At any rate, get a technician to check the gas pressure entering into the home. NOW!
