Hi,
The tank was probably over filled and so the liquid is getting to the valve and regulator...
This also can happen if there is high humidity in the air...the propane changing from a liquid to a gas creates a very cold envioronment...

Basically this is nothing to be concerned about...

I have a Kenmore 14116329 propane grill. The propane tank is full but when I turn on the burners very little gas comes out resulting in a VERY low flame. Is it the regulator or???


It is most likely the saftey check valve in the tank. The procedure is to:
  • Close tank valve.
  • Disconnect hose connection from grill to tank.
  • Wait
  • Reconnect hose connection from grill to tank
  • "Slowly" open valve on tank to release gas back into grill
Through on some steaks

If still a problem replace tank.
The check valve that can cause your problem drastically reduces propane flow in case of an accident and the lines are ruptured
Hope this helps?

Full tank but no gas smell and just bought a new hose and regulator


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Test the propane tank valve for leaks:
  1. Turn the grill control knobs on the front (and, on some models, the side) of the barbecue to the off position.
  2. Turn the propane tank valve fully counterclockwise to close it.
  3. Mix a test solution of equal parts of dishwashing liquid and water in a small container.
  4. To test for leaks, apply the test solution liberally to the connection between the regulator fitting and the tank valve using a small paint brush. Apply the test solution to the valve handle and threads, the length of the hose, and the connection between the hose and the regulator. If bubbles appear at any point, there is a gas leak.
  5. Tighten the connections and retest.
  6. If you still see bubbles at any of the tested connections, close the tank valve and replace the leaking component.
Test the hose fittings for leaks:
  1. With the tank valve open, brush the test solution on the fitting at the other end of the hose, located under the control knobs.
  2. Turn the control knob to high and test the hose and fittings leading from the control knob to the grill. Turn the right control knob to off. Repeat the process for the other control knobs.
  3. If you see any bubbles during any of these tests, close the tank valve and contact your propane dealer or your local gas utility. Do not use the barbecue until the leak is corrected

Unable to get gas our of 'Blue Rhino" propane


The problem is an easy fix. Replace the current Hose/Regulator Assembly with a new one. They run about $30.00, at home centers and hardware stores that sell grills and accessories.

Once you install the new one and connect it to the gas tank, open the gas tank valve Very Very Slowly (Slow Motion, Slow) until it's fully open. If you don't do it this, the new regulator will lockup.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I connect the propane valve to the stove and it doesn't work, i just bought a new propane and still it doesn't work, my grandfater didn't use it for almos 4 years. what could happened?


Here's an easy solution. Turn the Tank Valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect connect the hose to the tank and turn the Tank Valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the grill first. Once it lights, turn it to it's highest setting and light the remaining burners the same way. Once all are lit, does the flame height look as it should? Is so, you solved the problem. If not, then you need to replace the grill hose/regulator assembly. You can purchase one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

If what I suggested solved the problem, remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

We just got a new propane tank and connected it and propane is not coming through


I'll assume you had it purged of air before you had it filled, right? A full 20lb tank should weigh about 35-38 lbs. If so try this: Leave the tank valve closed for a few minutes. Then open the tank valve very slowly. It may have a built-in excess flow valve in the hose that is checking closed and preventing you from getting gas. See if that helps.

Heats to only 300 degrees? i have replaced everything, sugestions?


This is a common problem with grills purchased after 2001. There is a new safety feature inside the regulator called a 'surge protector'. If you open your propane bottle valve too quickly or if you try attaching a tank with the tank valve in the 'open' position, the propane wants to 'surge' into the grill.

When the propane surges into the regulator (located on the grill hose) the 'surge protector' (inside the regulator) kicks on. When this happens you will not be able to get your grill lit, and if you do, it will be a small blue flame and the grill will not heat up.

So what to do if you trip the surge protector and can't get your grill to light or heat up?

Shut the tank off and shut the valves on the grill off. Disconnect the tank from the grill hose. When you disconnect the tank from the hose you will hear the excess pressure of propane release. This is an indication that you have re-set the regulator's surge protector.

Now that you have deactivated or reset the surge protector, reconnect the tank. Make sure the valve on the tank and the valves on the grill are in the closed and in the off position. After you reconnect the tank to the hose, SLOWLY open the tank valve (making sure the valves on the grill are in the OFF position).

Since you have slowly opened the valve on the tank, the propane did not surge into the regulator and the surge protector did not activate.

Now open 1 valve on the grill and light it. You should get a nice flame. If your grill has more than one valve, open each following valve in sequential order to extend the flames to the other burners.

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.

What would cause ice crystals to form on propane line


Bad hose, bad tank, or seals are gone. Recommenend buying a new tank and new hose. The Ice is from the propane freezing and the hissing noise is a leak from somewhere. Better to replace tank and hose and try again. You do not want to take a chance with propane
