We can't light the burners and there seems to be no gas or very little going through the regulator. The propane tank is full. Do I need a new regulator?

That effect is sometimes caused by foreign material (often spiders) in the valve of the tank. If there was a recent tank change, this could be the culprit. Open connection and blow out with puff of air. Also, the tank can be a suspect as the valves do sometimes fail. Lastly, it could certainly be the regulator, but they are pretty hearty as a rule.

New propane tank. Burner will not light, no gas flow. This was a replacement grill from coleman because they couldn't get the regulator. Starting to get very disgusted with this product.


jcw - It sounds like the regulator is locked up from turning on the gas tank valve. Happens a lot with the new OPD Valves on the grill tanks.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Turn the burner(s) ON for 1 Minute, Then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes reconnect the hose to the tank and open the valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow
motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? Id so, light the remaining burner the way. Did it light and the
flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help).

If the above didn't solve the problem, the Hose/regulator Assembly needs to be replaced. What happened was this, when you turned the tank upside to "burp" the tank. The OPD Valve shot a hot load of gas to the regulator, when you opened it as you normally would and permanently locked up the grill's regulator. That "burping" trick used to work with the old style tanks. Won't work with the new ones. You can get a new hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store, that sells grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes. Once you install the new one and connect it to the tank. Open the Valve Very, Very Slowly, until it is fully open. Or you may have the same problem again.

Hope this helped to solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

I have a Dukane Stainless Gas Grill (Five Burners, a Rotisserie and Stove top). It worked fine for three years. Now, I am not able to light more than one burner (of the five). When I go to put the second...


It's possible you may need a new regulator, but usually this problem is due to opening the propane tank valve too fast, which can cause the built-in excess flow valve to check closed to only a trickle. Next time you use the grill, very slowly open the tank valve and see if that solves it. If not, replace the regulator. Douglas

Grill will not light


If there is no gas check the tank, If the tank is fine look at the regulator. It has to be flat, because of a valve inside. This is a safety device incase of tipover.

New propane tank won't ignite


The regulator on the on the hose is either gone bad, or could have got a little bit of dirt in it. You could tap the side of the regulator gently and sometimes this will solve it.

Genesis s310 stainless grill. Does not fully light.


Regulator is not bad, as I stated before new valves are designed to reduce gas flow if valve is opened to fast. This is so if grill catches on fire, the tank will shut itself off, thus propane will stop flowing causing fire to extinguish itself.

No gas getting to bbq


I switched to the new style 20# tank with the new turn-on knob.  I couldn't get enough gas pressure to the BBQ burners for all three burners to light or to keep a strong flame on even one burner.  The new style tanks have a safety valve on the inside of the tank that shuts the gas off if you turn the knob on too fast because the safety valve thinks there is leak.  Shut everything off and then try turning the knob on real slow, especially at first, before turning it all the way on.  If that doesn't work (it didn't for me), then replace the large plastic connection valve knob (female end) that attaches the regulator to the tank.  Mine was for the old style tank and was black (low pressure).  I went to a propane company and had them replace it with a green knob (higher pressure).  Took it home and WALA!  Everything works fine now.  But it was very frustrating trying to figure why I couldn't get any gas to the burners after buying a brand new tank.  I hope this helps solve your problems.
