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.

Kenmore elite model141.16686 won't light when I tap regulator with hammer it lights briefly,I've had trouble in the past with lighting whenever I change tanks.


To solve this problem, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

Hello, we have a 3 switch stainless grill that has NEVER heated up properly. It always seems to stay luke-warm. Please help.


First, how high are the flames when turned to high as opposed to the low setting on each of the 3 burners? If there's no significant difference in height between the two settings, here's what I want you to do.

Turn off the gas tank (that's assuming you are using a 20lb LPG cylinder) and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the Tank Valve ON very, very slowly, until it's fully open. Now, light each burner individually turning them to high. Are the burner flames higher than before? If so, you just solved your problem.

Remember to turn the tank ON very, very slowly after turning it off to change the tank or if you turn the tank off after each time you grill. Also, when grilling preheat the grill with the lid closed, after lighting the burners.

Hope that solved your problem ... Happy Grilling!

Need to know how to reset the LP Gas flow for a Webber 300 BBQ


If you just installed a new, full tank of propane and turned it on and the burners wouldn't light.

Turn the tank off, disconnect from the grill hose (you'l hear a whooshing sound and smell gas, but that's alright). Wait several minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the gas valve on very very slowly, until it's full open. Now, try lighting your grill.

Remember, you will need to turn the tank valve on very very slowly every time you change tanks or turn the tank off after grilling.

What happened was this ... When you turned the tank on quickly it locked up the grill's gas regulator. Doing what suggested usually solves the problem. Oh, one other thing ... be sure your tank is not empty. The grill you have uses a lot of gas.

Weber Spirit one month old...went out, changed tank, won't light


The regulator that comes with Weber grills shuts the gas flow off if it detects the slightest leak. Disconnect the tank an reconnect. Check connections with soapy water for any leaks. Another problem, though uncommon for a new grill is a defective regulator. You have a 1 year warrenty on your grill so contact Weber if you continue to have problems.

Low flame


The newer type tank has an anti tip safety device. It gets all boo boo'd when the grill is moved around. Remove the tank. Open the valves on the grill and close them back. Re install the tank and slowly open the valve.
