Question about Char-Broil Patio Caddie 4654870 (LP) Grill

1 Answer

Last night the patio caddie by CharGrill wouldn't get hot enough (past 250F). Today I can't get any flame even with a new cylander. When you turn on the gas and the regulator, I used to hear a hissing sound, not anymore. I took the regulator (the valve part) apart and put it back, seems to be turning the valve normally; so unless something is clogged I am not sure why no gas is getting past the regulator.

Patio heater goes out


If your patio heater goes out when you turn on the pilot and let go, this is usually a worn thermocouple. They last between 1 year (if you are unlucky) up to 6 years and are a consumable item. Found this site very useful patio heater problem solving.

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.

Amana gas range bake burner does not heat


Pull the bottom of the oven off. You will see 2 to 4 screws that hold the panel on. The ignitor is under there. Look at the ignitor carefully for breaks. I say carefully as the ignitor is very easy to break.
