Question about Char-Broil 463220004 Grill

1 Answer

I cannot get the gas grill to light. The tank was not completely empty but I replaced it anyway to make sure that was not the problem. I have the same problem with the refill. It does not seem to be getting any gas to the burners. I do not smell or hear the gas when I turn it on. The igniter is sparking.

The regulator could have gone into lock up.
try this to unlock it...

  1. Open the BBQ Lid
  2. Turn ALL main control knobs to the "OFF"/CLOSED position
  3. Turn the Propane tank valve to the "OFF"/CLOSED position
  4. Disconnect the Regulator hose from the Propane tank
  5. Turn ALL main control knobs to the "ON"/OPEN position
  6. Let stand for 1-2 minutes, allowing all excess gas in valves and manifold to dissipate
  7. Turn ALL control knob back to the "OFF"/CLOSED position
  8. Reconnect the regulator hose to the Propane tank- hand tighten only.
  9. Check all hose connections to ensure that a positive seal has been made
  10. SLOWLY turn "ON"/OPEN the propane gas supply
  11. Wait approximately 5 seconds for the regulator pressure to stabilize
  12. Turn "ON"/OPEN the selected burner control knob to "HI"
  13. Press the Multi Spark ignition button or match light selected burner.
  14. Hope this helps you has me in the past!

SOURCE: Low burners, low heat

I find I have the same problem in the winter, but not in the summer. Seems the cold air causes the gas to settle. Try taking the tank off, turn it upside down a few times, and hook it back up.

SOURCE: propane will not come thru burners

sounds like your propane tank has an air-lock(the gas is trapped in bottom of tank with air on top of it)you need to take your tank into service depot and get them to purge the tankof all the air in it.

SOURCE: the regulator freezes on my three burner Barbeques Galore Grill

Are you sure that you replaced it with the correct size regulator, Another thing might be the orifaces are restricted in the burner valves. The only way to check this would be with a manometer that reads in water coloumn. You also may have a burner problem if its a single burner. One thing you might do is take apart the burner(s) and blow them out with compressed air including the burner valves. But not the regulator this may damage the diaphgram.

WE HAVE A BRICKMAN GAS GRIL #810-8411-5 AND GAS IS NOT GETTING THRU. WE HAVE CLEANED IT OUT COMPLETELY, NOTHING IS BLOCKING ANYTHING, BUT IT STILL WON'T LITE. WHATS OUR NEXT STEP


Myra, the problem lies with the grill's gas regulator and how the tank was turned ON. Or the tank is empty.

To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Seems like burners flames dont get big


Paula, you're propane tank may be almost empty or the OPD Valve in the tank has locked up your grill regulator. To test this theory, turn the propane tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once it's completely open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Does the flame height appear to be normal? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. If all the flame heights are now normal, you solved the problem Just remember to alway trun the tank valve ON very very slowly. If that didn't solve the problem, you need to replace the grills regulator/hose assembly. You can purchase it at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Just take your old one wih you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to get back up and grilling!

Grill will not light, I tried lighting it with manuel lighter, it lights and it will not stay lighted.


If you grill is fueled by and LP grill tank, the tank may be near empty and doesn't have enough fuel to maintain combustion. However, if it lights, but the flames are low, it may be a case of the OPD tank valve on the propane tank has locked up your regulator. In which case, turn the tank OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose. Now, turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is completely open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. If the flame appears to now be normal, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. If all burners have returned to normal height, you solved the problem. Always remember to turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

If none of the above solved your problem, you may need to replace the regulator/hose assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

Burner igniters spark but do not ignite the burners. Do I need to replace them or is there some way to clean something. Also, the rotisserie burner will not ignite, and it has never been used.


All the ignitors work (spark), but none of the burners light ... is usually caused by and inadequate gas supply. Since you didn't didn't mention what the grill is fueled by (Natural Gas or Propane Gas), I going to assume it's Propane. So, turn the propane tank valve to OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank, Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow) , until it's fully open. Try lighting the burner farthest from the tank first. If it lights properly, turn the burner knob to the highest setting and continue to light the remaining main surface burner(s) the same way. If all lightt and the flame height is as it should be, you solved the problem. If it doesn't, either your tank is empty or the grill hose/regulator assembly needs to be replaced. You can purchase one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills. Take your old one with you for comparison.

If it's fueled by Natural Gas, make sure the gas line shutoff valve is turned ON all the way.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Will not stay lit,I have a new gas tank and it light the first burner but will not light others and will not stay lit


Turn off the propane tank and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes, reconnect the hose and turn the tank valve on very, very slowly, until it's completely open.

Now light each burner one a time and turn it to high. If the burners all light and the flames remain burning on high for more than a few minutes, you're back in business. Just remember to turn the tank valve on very, very slowly after turning it off each time.

If the above didn't solve the problem, are you sure you tank gas a significant amount of gas in it?
If that's the case (empty tank), when you replace it, do exactly what I said above when you connect a full tank to the grill hose.

Hope that solved your problem. Happy Grilling!

Need to know how to reset the LP Gas flow for a Webber 300 BBQ


If you just installed a new, full tank of propane and turned it on and the burners wouldn't light.

Turn the tank off, disconnect from the grill hose (you'l hear a whooshing sound and smell gas, but that's alright). Wait several minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the gas valve on very very slowly, until it's full open. Now, try lighting your grill.

Remember, you will need to turn the tank valve on very very slowly every time you change tanks or turn the tank off after grilling.

What happened was this ... When you turned the tank on quickly it locked up the grill's gas regulator. Doing what suggested usually solves the problem. Oh, one other thing ... be sure your tank is not empty. The grill you have uses a lot of gas.

Troubleshooting amana gas grill


From a tag that came with the grill -

"To ensure proper gas flow, all of the burner control valves MUST be off before opening the LP cas cylinder valve.

When turning on the LP gas cylinder valve, make sure to open the valve SLOWLY two complete turns to ensure proper gas flow.

All LP tanks now come equipped with a leak detection device internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly it will restrict the gas supply to the appliance. Opening the valve rapidly may simulate a gas leak, causing the safety device to activate, restricting gas flow and causing low flames or poor ignition.

Opening the valve slowly will insure this safety feature is not falsely triggered."

I would guess you triggered the tank failsafe inadvertently.
