Can i get parts to convert my capn cook 4 burner bbq grill to lp

The BBQ's Galore grills are the only ones that are approved to be field converted. All you need a 4 LP Gas Burner Orifices and a Hose Regulator Assembly to hook to a LP Gas grill tank. You can buy the orifices from BBQ's Galore and the Hose/Regulator Assembly from any hardware store or home improvement center that sells grills & accessories for about $30.00. Gas grill burner orifices are pretty universal, so any LP Gas ones should work.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The gas from the tank is not flowing to the burners on my Charmglow grill

to solve this problem, 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 or the regulator/hose assembly may need replacing. If so, you can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Juts tank your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Model 8500L: The gas instant flowing to the burner.

Turn the LP Gas tank valve off. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reattach the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (I'm talking slow motion, now). Once the tank valve is completely open, light the burner furthest away from the propane tank and turn it to the highest setting. Continue to light any remaining burners the same way.

If it appears you're still not getting gas to the burners, repeat the above procedure again. If that doesn't solve the problem , you'll need to replace the tank hose and regulator assembly. It can be purchased from any home center. like Lowe's or Home Depot. Just be sure to take your old one with you, to get the proper size.

Hope this gets you up and grilling again.

The burners are no longer producing as much heat. There seems to b low gas flow. I have cleaned the entire grill interior including the burners. They do not seem to e blocked with any debris.

Turn off your LP gas Tank. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve on very very slowly, until it's all the way ON. Now, try lighting your burners one at a time and the flame height should be back to normal. Just remember to turn the tank valve on very very slowly each time, after you have turned the tank valve off.

It that didn't solve your problem, your gas tank is probably empty. If thats the case, be sure you turn the filled or new tank on very very slowly.

Let me know if this helped get you back to 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.

Won't light properly or vary the flame

You're probably turning the LP tank valve on too fast. Close the tank valve, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn on the tank valve. Make sure all your grill knobs are closed. Light one at a time and turn to low setting. After they are all lit, slowly turn up the heat on each as needed. Hope this helps. Douglas

I have a kenmore gas grill model # 141.16322 with an LP tank. Is there a converter kit to hook it up to a gas line so I do not have to use the LP tank?

Just call Sears with the model # and ask. I'm certain that all their models can be converted. If you do hook it up to your house line, I recommend 2 things. First, install a shutoff valve in the line to turn off the gas to the grill when not in use. Second, install a hose of appropriate length with a 2 piece quick-disconnect (after the shut off valve), so you can use the grill on your patio or deck and then disconnect it and store it where you want, and the grill is not in the way and you're not tripping over the hose.

Frost accumlates instantly on a round metal thing with a hissing

This is a common sign of a leak and I would replace the flow control valve. If you continue to leave it on it will have very big problems

My baby q is sick

Since 1995 all regulators (the part that attaches to the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a gas leak. This safety device can be inadvertently activated in two ways, putting the grill into what is commonly called “bypass”. The first way for the device to be activated is to leave one or more burner control knobs in the “ON” position when the LP cylinder valve is opened. The second is not to wait long enough to “start” the grill after opening the LP cylinder valve. The safety device in the regulator is activated each time that the LP cylinder valve is opened. The device resets itself when the gas pressure equalizes between the closed burner control valve and the regulator, through the hose. If a burner control knob is turned on before the gas pressure can equalize, the device will remain in “bypass”. The length of time necessary to wait to “start” the grill after turning on the LP cylinder valve is dependent on the length of the hose and outside air temperature. It is always good practice to wait a few seconds after opening the LP cylinder valve before turning on the burner control knob to start the grill.
Keep in mind that the safety device reacts to a gas leak. If a grill is in bypass, the gas connections and hose should be tested for leaks with a soap and water solution.
If the grill is in bypass, after checking for gas leaks do the following to get the grill out of bypass:
To reset the gas safety device:
Open the barbecue lid.
1. Close the LP tank valve.
2. Turn your burner control knob to the OFF position.
3. Wait at least 5 minutes if the barbecue had been lit, then
4. Disconnect the hose from the LP tank.
5. Turn your burner control knob to the HIGH position.
6. Wait at least 2 minutes, and then turn the burner control knob to the OFF position.
7. Re-connect the hose to the LP tank.
Re-lighting the barbecue:
1. Open the barbecue lid.
2. SLOWLY open the LP tank valve all the way and wait 1 minute.
3. With the lid open, turn the burner control knob to the HIGH position.
4. Ignite the grill by pushing the crossover ignition button.
5. Close the barbecue lid.
6. The barbecue should reach 500 to 550 degrees in 10-15 minutes.
When you are done grilling:
1. Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
2. Turn off the LP tank valve last.
* Always follow the re-lighting instructions whenever you use the adapter hose and larger tank.
