Question about Endless Summer 153100 Open Flame Patio Heater

1 Answer

Hello, Full Propane tank and it's open. Knob is turned to start and pushed in. Gas can be heard and smelled. The Igniter button clicks and the sound of lighting as in the past is heard but there is no flame. I have also tried a fireplace lighter in the small hole that has a movable cover over it as I have also done in the past, but still no flame. Is it possible that a gas jet? could be plugged? Thanks Rob McQuiston

Why won't the burners light even when I smell gas and hear igniter clicking?


Bill, two things possibly going on here that are common with an aging grill. First you need to turn off the fuel tank and set it aside. you mention that a clicking can be heard when pushing the igniter button which usually indicates good battery but if you have never changed it you may want to just as a good measure. Unscrew the bottom and you should find AA or AAA battery behind it. Now with battery good and the igniter generating a fast load clicking sound you want to get down and follow the wire that runs from the the back side of the igniter push button down inside and usually under the burner tubes ending out at one end of each burner. What happens when you press the igniter switch is, an electrical current is sent down the wire and when it reaches the end the current jumps to the closest metal it can find creating a spark.so you need to insure that the end of the wire is close to where the flame is generated but not so close that that you cant see a spark. Make sure the end of the wire is bare and clean as is the area on the burner where it arcs Now do this to all for burners. Turn all the knobs on the grill off and connect the tank. Make sure the lid is open now, and slowly open the valve on the tank. I say slowly like a ten count from close to full open. what can happen if you crank the tank valve open too quickly or with the grills valves open a vapor-lock effect can be created greatly reducing the flow of fuel from the tank. Iv'e seen many of the uninformed return 1/2 full tanks due to this problem. If you notice week flame or no flame but smell gas ALWAYS SHUT OFF VALVE ON TANK IMMEDIATELY KEEP LID OPEN AND LET THE AREA VENT BEFORE TRYING AGAIN lest you be the one being barbecued. Good Luck

I have a GE Hotpoint stove/range model num 317B6641P001 that the oven will not ignite nor will the igniter turn on.


It sounds like the ignitor is bad...you will not or should not smell gas if ignitor is bad...gas valve is not supposed to open until the sensor by the ignitor has reached a certain temp. It's a safety feature. If you replace the ignitor, it should work like normal.

How to you start it


Grill should have a push button igniter located on control knob panel. The ignitor requires a battery, usually AA. Remove the cap and put in battery. Make sure propane tank has propane and turn on. Make sure all connections are tight. You can also manually light it by going through the view hole located at bottom front or side. Make sure your match or lighter is in and lit before turning on gas.

I am smelling propane at the cooking surface when I turn the burner knob to the ignite position. I have been unable to determine the source of the leak. We've had the grill for a couple of years and have...


When the knob is in the ignite position, the gas should be coming out of the burners at a rate sufficient enough to light. It's normal to smell it before the igniter (either electric or push-button) ignites the gas.
If you recently moved the grill with the internal parts still inside it, it's quite possible the burner tubes have become loose in the holders. They are quite easy to remove because they are a commonly replaced component. Remove the grates and flavorizer bars according to your manual, and you should be able to reach in and check the position and snugness of the burner tubes.
Make sure you close the propane valve and disconnect the tank before doing this. Also, don't smoke when working on your grill. :)

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.

My weber gas grill suddenly does not heat up enough. It has been working for two years and suddenly the amount of flame is tooooooo small to cook.


Hello. You may not have enough propane left in the tank for it to work properly, you may not have turned the tank valve to the full open position, or your valve safety device may have kicked in. IF this last item is what happened read on:
To reset the check valve and get back to cooking on your gas barbecue grill, first
  • turn everything off. Turn off the grill, the rotisserie, the side burner and the LP gas cylinder tank.
  • Once everything is turned off disconnect the propane tank from the gas grill regulator by unscrewing it or pulling the quick-release on older or retro-fitted propane cylinders.
  • Now turn the grill on. I know, it is dis-connected from the gas tank but we want to ensure that the pressure in the gas lines or any gas in the burners is released.
  • Leave the grill, side burner, rotisserie, etc on high for a few minutes with the hood open before turning all the valves back to the off position.
  • Make sure. Most gas barbeque grill valves must be pushed in to turn them and if turning is attempted without pushing the knob, they will not turn to the “on” position.
  • With the grill, et al turned off reconnect the propane tank and slowly turn the hand wheel to the open position.
  • Slowly. The trick here is to turn the hand wheel slowly.
When the propane gas tank is new or newly-filled, the gas is full and the OPD is pushing slightly on the top filled area and the gas will want to burst through the valve. Slow it down by turning the valve on slowly and the check valve will reset itself.

My weber gas grill will not heat up past 300F


Hi John,

I just experienced the same exact problem ! I just bought a brand new Weber E-310 a 3 burner grill.
After I seasoned it up with cooking oil,I turned all the burners to high, opened the tank and clicked electrnic button several times , the grill was on then I went inside, I came out about an half-hour later and it was saying around 275 degrees..
I looked into my manual and there is a gas limit control valve that shuts down gas flow, when it thinks there is too much gas flow.

Sloution;
Turn the propane gas knob to off
Turn the gas grill knobs to Off.
Click the igniter several times to clear out any gas.
Then unscrew the regulator from the tank,( I then blew into the tank hole and regulator),
Screw back on the regulator to the propane tank.
I then clicked igniter again couple of times.
Now open your propane tank.
Then turn on front burner while clicking igniter, this will lite 1st burner.
Then turn 2nd burner on low then to high.
And if you have 3rd burner or more, turn low then to high!

John I did this and my grill went to 600 plus in a few minutes!!

The problem was turning the gas grill knobs on first then opening the tank then lighting...
You have to open propane tank with knobs off, THEN AS SOON AS YOU TURN ON 1ST KNOB, YOU MUST IGNITE ...
