We couldn't get any gas to the burners the other night so my husband replaced the regulator. We got gas to both burners but only reached a max temp of 250 degrees after 45 mins. What do you thing the...


The regulator that your husband replaced, is partially locked up. This occurred when he opened the gas tank valve to fast. It happens a lot with the new OPD Valve tanks. It may have been the problem with the first regulator.

To solve it: Turn the tank's regulator OFF and 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), until the valve is fully open. Then light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look normal? If co, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look as they should for being on HIGH? If so, you solved the problem. But, you won't know for sure, until you allow the grill to preheat for at least 15 - 20 minutes.

Always remember to open the tank valve very, very, slowly.

If the above didn't solve the heating problem. Remove and thoroughly clean all the burners, including the ventuuri valve on each burner. Spiders like to build nest in them.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

New propane tank. Burner will not light, no gas flow. This was a replacement grill from coleman because they couldn't get the regulator. Starting to get very disgusted with this product.


jcw - It sounds like the regulator is locked up from turning on the gas tank valve. Happens a lot with the new OPD Valves on the grill tanks.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Turn the burner(s) ON for 1 Minute, Then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes reconnect the hose to the tank and open the valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow
motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? Id so, light the remaining burner the way. Did it light and the
flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help).

If the above didn't solve the problem, the Hose/regulator Assembly needs to be replaced. What happened was this, when you turned the tank upside to "burp" the tank. The OPD Valve shot a hot load of gas to the regulator, when you opened it as you normally would and permanently locked up the grill's regulator. That "burping" trick used to work with the old style tanks. Won't work with the new ones. You can get a new hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store, that sells grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes. Once you install the new one and connect it to the tank. Open the Valve Very, Very Slowly, until it is fully open. Or you may have the same problem again.

Hope this helped to solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

I have a weber E320 grill and it is making a fairly loud humming sound by the connection of the tank. I just had the tank filled and checked for any leaks. It was determined that the tank is not the issue....


It is the gas flowing through the diaphragm of the regulator. It is common here in South Florida where we have alot of humidity. It is nothing to be concerned. You can also spray soapy water around the regulator fittings if you are concerned of any leaking around the regulator.

Hi, We have a Grande Cafe , it is 6 years old,


I think the problem is with the Over Fill Protection Device valve in the propane tank and it's locked up the grill's regulator. To solve the problem turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the grill's hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, turn on and light the burner that farthest from the grill first. Does the burner light and the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all the burners flames look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON very,very slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Low flame after winter non usage. All burners light, but low flame. Need to be cleaned? New regulator, fill tank?


Could be a low or empty tank. But, I suspect if the tank was turned OFF all winter and you just turned it ON, the tank's OPD Valve has lcked up you grills regulator. To test this theory, turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank and turn it to it's highest setting. Does the flame height now appear to be normal. If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. If everything has returned to normal, you've solved the problem. If it hasn't, then more thank likely your Propane Tank is empty.

Hope this helped you solve the problem

Sometimes Q100 will not light at all. No gas is coming out of regulator even with new tank and adapter hose or with portable bottle. Oil seen coming out of regulator. Other times when unit does light...


Nope, the regulator is not the problem. It's the LP tank regulator. The new OPD heads on the tanks are designed to prevent over filling. All 20lb cyclinders now have them. But, it's easy to solve.

Turn off the tank, disconnect the s/regulator from the tank, wait 5 minutes. Then reattach the hose/regulator to the tank and turn the tank on very, very slowly, until it is completely open. Now, try lighting the burners one at a time and turn them up to high. That should have solved your problem, by allowing the regulator to reset itself.

Just remember to always turn the tank on very, very slowly after turning the tank valve off each time.

The grill won't light although I have a newly filled tank and have used it once with the filled tank with no problem. This is a Weber portable grill.


This is kinda long but it should help you fix your issue:

How long has the grill sat since the last time you used it? If it has sat more than 4 months, check the tank to make sure it still has gas in it.

How did you shut the grill off that first time? Did you turn the burners off and then turned the tank off? If this is what you did, your grill is now "vapor-locked"; don't panic, it is easy to fix!

All you need to do is: 1) Open the tank's valve. 2) Open the burners to high. 3) Close the tank valve. 4) Turn the burners off.

Once you have done this, re-open the tank's valve, then turn the burner on to light the grill. If it doesn't light, repeat the above procedure and try again.

If it still won't light, you may have a bad regulator. You can buy another regulator and test the grill with it; if the grill lights, it was a bad regulator...if the grill doesn't light, you can always return the purchased regulator and get a refund as long as you kept the receipt.

If all of this hasn't fixed it, check your gas lines for any sign of cracking which can contribute to gas leakage. Check your burners, if they are rusty, take a paper clip and run it through each burner hole to clear any obstructions.

If none of this has fixed your issue, you may need to either get replacement parts for your grill or buy a new grill...that choice would be up to you, tho.

I sincerely hope at least SOME of this will be helpful to you...good luck!

Grill does not heat over 250 degrees


Here is a couple of things to do.

Make sure your tank is filled.
Straighten Fuel hose, so it is not bent or kinked.
Does your front burner light with a match? If it does light then check the Crossover Ignition System.

Also, It could be the way the unit is turn off.

Try following thses steps, this will help to reset the excess flow safety device.
Turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve OFF.
Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to HIGH. Wait at least 1 minute. Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve on slowly. Then go ahead an light your grill.
