The hiss is from the reg when the pressure equalizes on both sides of the diaphram with the pressure coming out of the breather hole . So check the reg .

had same problem- noticed regulator iced up. received new regulator under warranty from uniflame. still same problem. tapped on regulator and started to work better but should not have to do that. maybe regulators are defective, but not a grill doctor.

SOURCE: BBQ Galore Capt'n Cook 4 burner gas grill won't get hot.

You can buy a gas pressure guage from any HVAC supply house, and possibly at a gas utility office or the retailer that sold the grill.

It taps into the manifold, or gas valve.

For most LP systems you are looking for 11 to 14 PSI but double check with your system. You may can find it on the owners manual or on the data sticker.

Be shure to shut off the gas before you remove the plug and hook up the guage. Most plugs are either allen wrench or square head plugs.

Adjust the screw hidden under a sticker on the adjustment knob. That will increase the flow.

It is possible that your burners are clogged. Clean the burner ports with a paperclip (not a toothpick).

We're using a Sunbeam Grill Master outdoor grill. When we turn the start button to ignite it it doesn't work. The gas is on and the burners are off. Help.


Try this I have had the same problem occasionally with mine. Turnoff the knobs in front then turn off the tank then unscrew the black knob on the tank until you hear a hiss. Tighten the black knob and then try to start your grill again. Turn on tank then turn on one burner the start burner and ignite with your pisio igniter red button. Sometimes these get what is called a vapor lock and this should clear it up every time. Good Luck...

When I hook up the propane tank to the grill, I turn the tank on (open the valve) and I get an unusually loud hissing sound and I smell gas. I am afraid to try and light the grill.


You will get a hissing sound and smell gas if you wait too long to light it. You should be ready to light the stove as soon as you open the valve. If it doesn't light within a few seconds, turn off the gas, open the lid and wait a few minutes to try again.

Can't light the bbq


Hello,
You make have turned the propane tank valve on too fast. Close the valve, disconnect it, reconnect it and very slowly turn the tank valve back on. That should solve your problem.

Hi, I have just bought a Weber 100 BBQ. I have a


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.

How do i light this gas grill, it is a charbroil quantum....it was borrowed from our friend, who is now not picking up the phone...


Checklist:
1-Make sure propane tank has propane in it.
2-Turn regulator (valve attached to propane tank) on.
3-Turn burner dials on, usually there is a "light" or "ignite" position to let the most gas flow to start. If there isn't, just turn it/them to high.
4-Listen for the hissing, if you hear some hissing from the grill, it has gas flow.
5-Turn the dials back off and give 3-5 minutes for gas to clear.
6-Turn dials back on and hit the igniter button.
That should do it! :)

My Jenn air BBQ grill will not heat up all of


Couple things could be happening here. If you do exchanges, have you used more than one different propane tank since you've had this issue? This eliminates the possibility of a low tank pressure and a faulty tank connection. Next you need to look over the burners and the propane flow tubing. Spiders LOVE the sweet smell of propane and make their webbing inside the piping that get's the propane up to the burners. At your flow valves/On/Off knobs you'll notice that the propane shoots from the valves into a pipe with an air gap to gain oxygen. Look in there to see if there's any webs. Also should be a gap were that piping meets the burners, so you need to look there too. Depending on the age of the grill, you need to look the burners over. Corrosion & rust can cause the flame/propane holes in the burners themselves to cake up and close up causing much less flaming/heating opportunity. Also depending how much you've used it, it could be grease/dripping/sauce caked up over them too so they may need to be detailed/cleaned. It's not a pretty job, but grill maintenance that should be done every spring. When the burners get caked is when it's really fun and you need to remove them and clean out the holes with toothpicks. Jenn Air makes quality products, but being a BBQ and outdoors, it's just as vulnerable as any other to elemental and use issues. One last thing to check, some regulators (the disk shaped part right where the hose attaches to the tank) have another air mixture intake there with a screen on one side. Make sure there's no water in it and the opening is face down if you have one like that. Otherwise it's restricting the flow of the propane. I haven't seen one of these in a while, but they're still out there so check it too.

Gas grill conversion


It's safe, but you need to keep in mind that propane burns hotter than natural gas, so you won't need to turn the burners up as high for the same heat. Here's an article that explains some of the differences (but doesn't really answer your question): http://bbq.about.com/od/gasgrills/a/aa030505a.htm

Bottom line -- it's safe if you don't leave it cranked up to high flame. Two-thirds flame on propane should give about the same heat as full burner on natural gas.

Of course, you could change the jets. That would compensate for all the differences between NG and propane, and you could run the grill on full high heat if you wanted to.
