I had the same problem years ago with an old charbroil and ended up fixing by replacing the threaded female gas connector on the regulator with one of the old style male inside threaded type. This is the connector that connects the hose/regulator to the propane tank.

What is the life expectancy of a gas grill pressure regulator?


I've been in the propane business 28 years and have found regulators from the 1950's still in use today. Regulator manufacturers tell us they should be replaced after 25 years. It should typically outlast the grill itself, which often require new burners, cooking grids, etc. The hissing sound can just be the flow of gas thru the regulator. If you smell gas however, then you should replace it. If it is affecting the pressure to the burners and not getting hot enough to cook properly, then replace it as well.

Won't light properly or vary the flame


Hello,
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 5 burner grill that will only burn 2-3 burners. As soon as I turn on the 4th burner. They all go out. Is this a regulator problem?


You should not smell propane at any time when the tank is closed or the flame is lit. Make sure that the connection is tight between the grill gas line and the tank. You might want to take it off and reattach it to make sure there is no cross threading that is preventing a good seal.

The new tanks have a safety valve that can interrupt the flow if the knob is turned to on before the tank is opened. When that happens, the flame is low and sputtering. It will often go out if all of the jets are turned on at once.

You can actually hear the difference when you first turn the knob. If the valve is opened fully, you should hear a healthy hiss from the gas. You should use the ignition quickly after turning the knob and pay attention to whether one jet is assigned as the one to light.

It can be a regulator on the gas line as well, but this is actually less common. If you have not had this problem before hooking up this particular tank, try a new one. Those trade in tanks are often culprits because all tanks should have been updated to new standards a few years back. The trade ins are often older than they should be. There's a date on the top that will give you an idea.

Other than that, make sure that there is not a lot of debris, no loose connections, and the jets are clean. Thanks for using fixya.

Propane gas flame is not hot. Do I adjust the air


Here is something to try if it is LP Gas:

Here is a Tip to fix a grill that not getting hot:
1. Turn the gas valve knob off. then close LP tank valve knob.
2. Unscrew the plastic hose coupling knob from the LP tank. You may hear a slight "hissing" sound as pressure is released this is normal.
3.Wait a minute then screw the coupling knob back on to LP Tank.
4.With lid open.slowly open LP tank valve.
5.Relight the grill the proper way by turning gas valve knob to ON position while turning the igniter knob at the same time.
6.After you are sure the grill is lit preheat the grill for 30 minutes.

This was called purging the line or releasing the air out of the line.

Another thing your orifice could be clogged with spiders or dirt. If it is LP gas check to make sure your hose is not kinked.

There is a high pitch that people over approx age 30 cannot detect. My son and daughter complained of a high pitched noise coming from our gas grill, but I could hear nothing. I turned the gas tank off,...


What they are hearing is the regulator. There is a diaphragm in the regulator that is vibrating due to the rush of gas flowing through it. This is easily corrected. First, the next time you light the grill, turn the tank valve only one quarter to one half of a turn and light the grill, once the grill is lit, if you have trouble bringing the grill to the temperature you want, you can open the tank valve more and the noise shouldn't start. The reason the noise won't start then is because by that time, the regulator's diaphragm is at the temperature of the gas flowing through it and, subsequently, will not vibrate. If the noise starts again, you can go to just about any home improvement store and get a replacement regulator.

How do i light this gas grill, it is a charbroil quantum....it was borrowed from our friend, who is now not picking up the phone...


Checklist:
1-Make sure propane tank has propane in it.
2-Turn regulator (valve attached to propane tank) on.
3-Turn burner dials on, usually there is a "light" or "ignite" position to let the most gas flow to start. If there isn't, just turn it/them to high.
4-Listen for the hissing, if you hear some hissing from the grill, it has gas flow.
5-Turn the dials back off and give 3-5 minutes for gas to clear.
6-Turn dials back on and hit the igniter button.
That should do it! :)

Weber grill will not heat up, reaches 200F and no higher


Also, it has to shut down the same way every time you use your grill.

My grill won't light, and I don't hear gas running


sounds like a problem with tank valve. Try attaching back to grill. Open valve slowly, if you open to fast valve thinks it is leaking and shuts down. If this doesnt work try a differant tank, buy always open slowly.
