I had this problem when I turned on the burners before I turned on the tank, to fix it I had to turn everything off. Then turn the tank on and wait about a minute for pressure to build in the lines then turn on the burners. Hope this helps

When I start my grill, it will not ignite, It worked perfectly fine the day before.


If you turned the tank OFF after using it the last time (which is the safe thing to do) and turned it back ON just recently. Here's what you need to do, to solve the problem. Also, make sure you still have gas in the tank.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Lift the tank to see ift feels like
gas is still in it. If doesn't you can stop right there. If not, continue.

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

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) Until the valve is fully open.

4. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn to HIGH. Did the burner light & does the
flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the identical same way. Now.
do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help).

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any hardware store or home center that sells grills and accessories. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

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

Grill turns on but doesn't get hot enough to cook anything


Assuming it's a Propane Grill. More than likely, the grills regulator is partially locked up or the tank is low on gas..If you're confident that the tank has adequate gas, turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the grill hose/regulator assembly from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until it's fully open. Then light the burner that's farthest from the tank, first and turn the flame to it's highest setting. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Have all the flame heights returned to normal? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem and you are still sure there's adequate gas in the tank ... You'll need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Just make sure to take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you solve the problem and Happy Grilling!!

Burner igniters spark but do not ignite the burners. Do I need to replace them or is there some way to clean something. Also, the rotisserie burner will not ignite, and it has never been used.


All the ignitors work (spark), but none of the burners light ... is usually caused by and inadequate gas supply. Since you didn't didn't mention what the grill is fueled by (Natural Gas or Propane Gas), I going to assume it's Propane. So, turn the propane tank valve to OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank, Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow) , until it's fully open. Try lighting the burner farthest from the tank first. If it lights properly, turn the burner knob to the highest setting and continue to light the remaining main surface burner(s) the same way. If all lightt and the flame height is as it should be, you solved the problem. If it doesn't, either your tank is empty or the grill hose/regulator assembly needs to be replaced. You can purchase one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills. Take your old one with you for comparison.

If it's fueled by Natural Gas, make sure the gas line shutoff valve is turned ON all the way.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Does not start. manual start doesnt work either.


First, is your grill on a cart or built in to an island? Secondly, are you using a 20lb propane tank to fire the grill or is it hard piped to the grill from your house? And finally, has it been converted from Propane to Natural Gas?

If you're using a 20lb LP Grill Tank are you sure there's still gas in the tank? Did you just installed a new, full tank recently and the problem started after that?

If the latter is the case, turn off the grill tank valve 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. Light each burner one at a time and turn then to high flame. Do the flames look normal? Are they the proper height? Is so, you just solved your problem. Remember to turn the tank valve on very, very slowly after turning it off each time.

If you grill is hard piped from your house, be sure that the gas line shutoff valve is turned ON.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

Will not stay lit,I have a new gas tank and it light the first burner but will not light others and will not stay lit


Turn off the propane tank and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes, reconnect the hose and turn the tank valve on very, very slowly, until it's completely open.

Now light each burner one a time and turn it to high. If the burners all light and the flames remain burning on high for more than a few minutes, you're back in business. Just remember to turn the tank valve on very, very slowly after turning it off each time.

If the above didn't solve the problem, are you sure you tank gas a significant amount of gas in it?
If that's the case (empty tank), when you replace it, do exactly what I said above when you connect a full tank to the grill hose.

Hope that solved your problem. Happy Grilling!

Coleman heater model 5445c700 propane camp heater wont light. It did work fine. When I hold the knob in the light position you can hear gas but it barely ignites then goes out. I've tried new gas and...


If you're using a 20lb propane tank (Gas Grill Tank), that may be the problem. Turn off the propane tank at the tank valve and disconnect it from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the heater hose to the tank. Turn the propane tank valve on very,very slowly until it's all the way open. Try lighting your heater now. If the pilot flame height returned to normal, that was the problem.

FYI - The Thermocouple has nothing to do with the length of the pilot flame. It's a safety feature that stops the gas if the pilot flame goes out for any reason.

Hope that solves your problem. Please let me know.

Grill with a full tank of gas will not get hot


Low flame, low temperature, yellow flame: This has become the biggest problem with many grills these days and it's almost always because of the regulator (the funny UFO shaped thing on the gas hose). Regulators seem to be stickier these days and when they stick you don't get enough gas to generate a good grilling temperature. To get your regulator unstuck you need to release the pressure on it. Follow these steps exactly:
  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally
To keep the regulator from sticking again make sure that you turn off the control valves first, then turn off the tank valve. Always open your tank valve slowly. If this doesn't work give it a second try. If you still have low flame then you probably have a faulty regulator that will need to be replaced.

Gas grill lights but doesn't get very hot


I had this same problem especially when the tank on my 5 burner 2 year-old Kenmore was about half full. The solution above fixed it. I was used to opening the gas fully, turning one burner to high and clicking the button. If I would have read the front of the grill I would have seen that this was incorrect. I turned off the grill completely, unhooked the regulator and reconnected it. With one burner on high I began clicking the button BEFORE I turned on the gas. I slowly turned the gas on one quarter turn and it lit up full flame. I slowly turned the gas another quarter turn and lit the second burner. I slowly opened the gas all the way and lit the third and so on. That did the trick!
