Hello,

Here are some tips:
Check: The excess flow safety device, which is part of the barbeque to cylinder connection, may have activated.

Fix: To reset the excess flow safety device turn all burners 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 use your like you normally do.
Now the line is purged.

My gas grill sprays alot of gas when i first turn it on, the has very low flame


Hi axmaster892
You have a faulty gas regulator...
*********************************************
Gas Regulators are notorious for doing just what yours is doing.
After sitting in the same position for a length of time they freeze in that position, then along comes a grain of sand, or other debris and blocks the gas flow.
Remove the regulator if possible, if not try it in place with the tank removed.
Get a plastic headed hammer and gently but firmly tap on the regulator, your trying to free up the diaghram inside.
After tapping and freeing the regulator diaphram reinstall and you will be good to go.
If this does not work, the replace the regulator as it is defective.
Some regulators are ajustable, if you have one of those then try to adjust the regulator, you will see a cap on top of the regulator, that is where the adjustment screw is located.
Please take time to rate me

Genesis Silver B Grill: grill won't heat past 350 or so. put a new regulat...


An odd thing with many propane gas grills is how the regulator functions. If the tank is opened too fast the regulator over-adjusts and delivers no gas. Try this: Turn tank off and open all burner controls. This should clear the line of any gas. Close burner controls and open tank very slow. Now lite and temp should go up.

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 and Slow heating to temperature


have you recently changed propane tanks or refilled the propane tank?
What cycle are you using to turn it off and on?

Low gas flow - low heat


The only way you can fix the low flame, low heat problem, is to remove the grill, take a medium sized paper-clip (staightened out) and clean out each individual hole on the steel burner, flame tube. (I'm sure there's a technical name for it).

Since they (the holes on the flame tube) face up unprotected, directly under the grill cooking surface they tend to get blocked quickly with continous use and certain foods, like pork ribs. Bad design unless all you plan on grilling is hot dogs.

There are about 500 individual holes, so plan on being there a while. Or in other words, do it close to the cooler.

I've been tempted to toss the thing into the woods a bunch of times over the past 2 years I've owned the dumb thing.

Good luck!
