It could be a defective LP gas regulator or a restriction somewhere in the gas line for the bbq. This can also happen if the propane tank is overfilled.

First make sure that the LP tank is not overfilled. If you open the bleeder hole on the tank(small screw next to the valve) there should be no liquids coming out. If liquid propane is coming out then the tank is overfilled. Keep the bleeder screw loose until the liquid disappears then tighten. Re-connect the tank and see if that fixes the problem.

Then inspect all the gas lines on the bbq. Make sure that there are no kinks or crushed lines.

Then take a look at the gas regulator. Try turning on all the burners then give the regulator a couple good taps on the housing with something solid. See if the burner changes size. If it does and then goes back down it could be the gas regulator. Also take a look at the regulator housing. There should be a very small hole on the housing and it might be labled "vent". Make sure that this little hole is not plugged with any debris or that can cause a low pressure problem. You can use a sewing needle to gently poke out the hole. You will know if it worked because the burners will become much higher. And you could also try disconnecting the hose and regulator assembly from the bbq then turn on the LP tank slowly with the regulator connected. You should get plenty of gas flow from the end of the hose. Then use your hand to block and release the flow a couple times to try and clear any debris that might stuck in the regulator.BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS!!! MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLEAR OF ANY SOURCES OF IGNITION BEFORE TRYING TO CLEAR THE REGULATOR. Then reconnect the hose regulator and tank to see if the problem is fixed. If you are getting very low flow from the hose with the regulator disconnected then it is probably a defective regulator. They are pretty standard and you can purchase a new LP hose and regulator assembly from most home improvement stores.

If the regulator checks out good then I would think that there is a restriction in the main gas line for the bbq after the regulator. You will need you dis-assemble the main line and blow it out with some compressed air to clear the restriction.

    And the Mobilian is correct. There is a safety device built into the new tanks that can trip. Make sure that all the valves on the BBQ are off and after connecting the LP tank always turn the valve slowly as he stated or the safety valve can trip.

Remove the tank and open all valves. Close valves and reconnect tank. Open valve SLOWLY just a half a turn. This will keep the safety inside the tank from tripping. Retry.

If the furnace is cycling on and off and not reaching temp there is a problem in the control circuit. If the thermostat is not satisfied the furnace should be running without shutting off in which case the capacity of the furnace is inadequate because of size or problems reducing the capacity. This could be caused by an increase in home size, poor air flow (dirty filter, loose fan belts, fan running slow, obstructions in the duct), dirty heat exchanger or burner, reduced gas flow, over temperature switch bad causing the burner to shut off early, or a few more technical reasons. You may do well to call a technician to troubleshoot this problem.

zonfish - if you're tuning the gas tank off at each use, as you should. The problem lies in your grill's gas regulator, but it also is not a big deal and is easily solved.

Whenever, you open the tank valve, do it VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow), until it is fully open. Then light the burners.

What happens is this, LP Gas Grill Tanks are now equipped with an Overfill Protection Device ("OPD"). And often time, when you turn the valve on like you would normally do, the OPD Valve sends a hot load of gas to your grill's regulator and partially locks it up or locks up entirely. Therefore, the burners are not getting enough gas to heat the unit up to 500 degrees. Opening the valve very, very, slowly, overcomes this problem.

I hope this helped you and Happy Grilling.

Dryer heats short time when first started then no heat rest of cycle


Hi there,

Well if it's a gas dryer and if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat or less heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information and please don't forget to give some information about the brand and model number.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Our grill won't heat above 200 degrees F. I can smell gas, but have done the soapy water test and no sign of a leak. Anything else Ishould check?


You might have the spider syndrome. A strange but common problem is that small spiders build a tiny web that blocks the gas from flowing . They find the small hole "called the orifice" that allows that gas to flow from the end of the gas hose/tube and then enter the burner. Remove the burner and look into the orifce hole; you may see a white cotten-like blockage of the orifice hole, or sometimes the web will be buily in the end of the burner tube. Either way, this is the most likely problem.. I am assuming that the burner is not old and rusting away so that the gas is not being controlled throught the burner because the burner has rust holes in it.

Oven will not heat past 100 degrees. Circuit breaker is not tripped. All other parts of the oven work fine.


Hello there:
It won't bake or even heat up correctly or If your oven won't bake, check these: Bake igniter Other causes Bake igniter Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself. The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame. Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are: The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven). The thermostat is defective. The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective. The selector switch is defective.

My q grill is not heating properly. I have a full tank of propane and the grill is clean but the burner is not getting enough gas to heat past 200 degrees


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

Grill jenn-air will not heat past 100 degrees


You need to pull the burners out and scrub open the side feedholes on the burner. These ususally clog up over time reducing the heat available for cooking. Also, sometimes the Gas regulator goes bad over time when left outside for a year or two. A bad regulator will put out less gas as it fails closed.
