I have a dacor gas grill and I seem to have no gas pressure, almost like I am out of gas. Full tank, and just barely a flame, if I turn on more than one burner the flame goes out.

I've had my grill for a few years and when i turned it on last night, i could barely see the flames and i had both burners on hi. I cleaned (took a wire brush) to where the flames get out and still...


You may have to recheck the tank for full. If you forgot to turn off the tank after the last time you used the grill, the tank could have leaked down. I always keep a spare full tank for just those types of problems. If the tank is full, then the regulator may have a problem. That grill should be able to get over 300 degrees.

Gas tank is full, burners are turned on high, but flame is very low


lProblem: Low flames on grill, tank is full.

Cause: These newertanks have a device inside that limits the flow of gas to preventleaking or accidental discharge of gas from the cylinder. The leak detector mechanism inside the tank shuts off the gas whenever the valve is opened rapidly.

Solution:
Closethe tank valve and remove the tank. Check the gas line for ANY objectthat could cause blockage. Open all valves on the grill to eliminateany pressure whatsoever. Close all valves and reattach tank. SLOWLYopen the tank not over 2 turns. Check for leaks. I just open my tank atiny bit but that is just me.

Burner flames don't get hot, like not enough gas.


Try this, Turn off the tank. Disconnect it. Reconnect it. Turn tank valve back on very slowly and then see if you get bigger flame size.

Gas not coming out enough; flame not catching on to other burners

Low flame


Next time you use the grill turn the gas on slowly. For some unknown reason when turned on quickly the regulator reduces the gas flow.
Another problem with some gas fittings is an auto shutoff if detects the slightest leak. Sometimes the shutoff is not 100% and allows a small amount of gas causing the weak flame.

Low gas flow - low heat


Hi Lyon,
Yeah, it's the regulator. Fortunately, they're cheap and easy to replace!

You can look on line for part number 80012. Or you can remove yours and take it to Home Depot or Lowe's in the outdoor cooking area and match up a replacement. <--- they're all the same... just make sure the compression fitting (the brass end) is the same size.

The only other thing I could recommend is this... Turn the LP bottle completely off. Then completely remove the big plastic knurled knob from the tank. Now replace the knob back onto the tank (all the way and make sure it's tight). Then S L O W L Y turn the gas back on. Now try your pit. If you get the same flame, it's the regulator. If you get full flame, you just reset the safety device inside the tank.

I'm betting regulator. Good luck and happy cookin'!

Grill with a full tank of gas will not get hot


Low flame, low temperature, yellow flame: This has become the biggest problem with many grills these days and it's almost always because of the regulator (the funny UFO shaped thing on the gas hose). Regulators seem to be stickier these days and when they stick you don't get enough gas to generate a good grilling temperature. To get your regulator unstuck you need to release the pressure on it. Follow these steps exactly:
  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally
To keep the regulator from sticking again make sure that you turn off the control valves first, then turn off the tank valve. Always open your tank valve slowly. If this doesn't work give it a second try. If you still have low flame then you probably have a faulty regulator that will need to be replaced.

Low flame on 3 main burners. model GBC730W


Mike, I had this problem with my grill once or twice. Like most of us grilling men we turn the grill off at the tank trying to be safe. Sometimes, like in my case, I do not turn the nobs back to the off position. When returning to the grill the next day or week the first thing we do is turn the gas on leaving the nobs on, then lighting. Every time I do this my flame never gets full or does not reach full temp. To resolve this: turn everything off including the nobs, then turn the gas on, wait a minute or two. Turn the nobs to full and ignite. It should be at full flame then, adjust from there. I hope this is helpfull.
