I turn the dial to grill, press the ignite switch and everything goes hunky dory, then when I let go of the dial the flame goes out. There is no gas coming out when I let go of the dial. if I turn the dial the other way to ignite the oven that works fine, its just the grill that does not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had a stove in my camper that did this. The answer was to let the flame burn for a few minutes BEFORE closing the door. I think the original problem is that there is too much gas flowing to the burner and it literally blows itself out, until you get everything heated up and working. The question, I think, is there a way to turn down the gas pressure??
Here's the problem and the solution. The new regulator you just installed, locked up when you turned ON new tank. This oocurs quite frequently with the fairly new OPD equipped grill tanks.
1. Turn the gas tank's 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 valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help). Remember to ALWAYS open the tank valve very, very, slowly.
You have a couple of questions. In order: 1. Flame may not be visible because it burns very clean. 2. When they say 'turn gas off', they actually mean 'turn gas tank off'. 3. It's not necessary to remove the tank after every use. Just make sure the gas valve is off and the entire grill and tank are covered. I do remove the tank, and store it in an outdoor shed during the winter.
Mike, I had this problem with my grill once or twice. Like most of us grilling men we turn the grill off at the tank trying to be safe. Sometimes, like in my case, I do not turn the nobs back to the off position. When returning to the grill the next day or week the first thing we do is turn the gas on leaving the nobs on, then lighting. Every time I do this my flame never gets full or does not reach full temp. To resolve this: turn everything off including the nobs, then turn the gas on, wait a minute or two. Turn the nobs to full and ignite. It should be at full flame then, adjust from there. I hope this is helpfull.
Good answer... but remember (if you have the regular burners on... The Rotisserie will not light.) 1. Cut all knobs off... Then push and hold in Rotisserie button as you turn to high.
2. Press ignition button, until you hear rotisserie ignite. 3. Keep holding in the rotisserie button until the thermostat realizes the gas is on and burning. (IT must get hot enough to keep gas flowing.) Hope that helps, Dave
