Try replacing the regulator, easy to do and not very expensive, to see if that fixes the problem.

Brinkman gas grill won't start. Don't hear clicking sound. Hooked up new gas tank, but no success


Victor, are you sure you're getting gas to the burners after installing the new tank? You can try match lighting them to make sure. But, I suspect, that it's the installation of the new tank, that's causing the problem.

To test my theory, tune the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Ope the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, try lighting the burner that's farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining 3 main burners the same way. Did those burners light and the flame heights looks correct? If, so you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

Burner won't turn on


The first question I have is the flame size good on the 2 burners that did light? If the flames are smaller, then you might just need to turn off the tank and disconnect it, then reconnect it and very slowly turn the tank valve on again. You might have turned the tank valve on too fast causing the excess flow valve to close and only give a trickle of gas through. On the other hand, if the flame size was good on both burners, then your igniter may not be lighting the rear burner, but typically if the other 2 burners light, the 3rd burners lights off the others. Did you try lighting the 3rd burner manually with a lighter to see if it was getting gas? If it lights manually, then the spark igniter may be your problem. It's also possible the rear burner has clogged holes from rust or drippings and is difficult to light. Without seeing it, it's just the process of elimination til it works. Try all those things and see if that gets it going for you. Check out my tips & tricks on gas grill lighting for more detailed info.

Bruner will not heat past 140 degrees, just bought a new tank


I just got done having the same problem. Disconnect the tank. Let the hose hang there for 5 or more minutes to drain any gas. Reattach the hose to the tank. Turn the knob on top of the tank SLOWLY 1/4 of a turn. Light the first burner on the left. Turn the knob on top of the tank another 1/4 turn. Light the rest of the burners from left to right. Don't open the tank valve any more than 1/2 turn altogether. When you changed tanks and hooked up the hose, the regulator in the hose cut back on the flow when the new blast of gas came through. (Its a safety feature.) So draining out the gas from the hose to reset the regulator and turning on the gas SLOWLY should give you good pressure.
