My charbroil masterflame 7000 is leaking gas. I beleive I need to replace the regulator and hose. Please advise on how to get the old hose off and put the new hose on. I need a diagram if possible. I would...


If you have already disconnected the hose from the tank. Track it back to where it connects to the burner(s) manifold. It should be up under the grill head. You should see a brass nut. Using an appropriately sized open end wrench, loosen this nut and the hose will disconnect from the grill.

The new Hose/Regulator Assembly will simply attach in the reverse order of how you removed the faulty one. After installing the new one and connecting the hose to the tank. Open the valve on the tank about halfway and check the connections for leaks. Thick soapy water, brushed on with a paint brush will work for detecting leaks. Look for bubbles other than those made by the soapy water. If you see one, tighten the connection a bit more. Be sure not to cross thread the nut, when installing it.

If you haven't purchase a new one yet, you can the Hose/regulator Assembly at any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories. They run about $30.00.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling.

When i push igniter it clicks but burners won't come on and i do not even smell gas , i burped it and turned gas tank upside down once, still won't work, grill is only 5 yrs old.


It sound s like the grill's regulator is locked up from "burping" the tank. Hopefully it's not a permanent lockup. To hopefully solve the problem, follow the steps below:

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!!

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.

Help. I need to replace the regulator and hose on my grill. But I don't know how to undo the old hose. The Hardware store told me to use a wrench and unscrew the hose but it isn't working. I've tried to...


Unfortunately, you'll have to replace the hose and the regulator. As what you have, is really all one piece. The hose/regulator combination is not that expensive and there are generic ones that will work. Be sure to take your hose/regulator combination with you to your hardware store, Lowe's or Home Depot to get the proper size and length. Look at sending around $15.00 to $20.00 for the combination.

When you install the new one, be sure to check for leaks before using the grill.

Sears gas grill


If it was me I would return it. You did the right thing by testing it on another grill. You should not have to accept a new grill that is not working properly.
