Are you sure there's adequate gas in the tan? If so do the following:
Disconnect the LP tank from the grill hose. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY,VERY SLOWLY, until it is full open. Light your burners individually and turn to highest flame setting, before lighting the next burner and so on.
If that solved your problem GREAT. Remember to turn the tank on that way in the future. If it didn't you'll need to remove the burners and clean each one.
Hope this helped to get you back up and grilling again.
Check that the fourth burner tube is set properly into the unit. Then turn all burners off, turn off the natural gas supply or remove the LP tank. turn all the burners on (don't try to light) wait a couple seconds turn all burners off. reconnect gas source. turn on gas, open burners fully and try to light.
Hello, You may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Turn it back off, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn the valve back on. Light one burner at a time and turn to low before lighting the next. If you are hearing and smelling gas with the tank on but all grill knobs off, don't use the grill. You may have a leaking grill valve, regulator or hose. If you are only smelling gas with the knobs on, it's possible you have a clogged burner or orifice from bug nests, spiderwebs, etc and need to clean it out first. Hope this helps. Douglas
It could be, but not necessarily. Did you turn the tank valve on slowly? Try turning the tank off, disconnect, then reconnect and open it very slowly. If that doesn't solve it, report back and we'll assist you further. Your regulator may be adjustable, so you can probably increase the pressure, if needed. If the first solution doesn't work, remove the cap from the top center of the regulator and turn the adjustment screw clockwise in 1/4 turns to increase pressure and see if that allows all 3 burners to stay lit. Other factors may be an issue, so if this doesn't work either, click on my username and scroll down my profile to my tips and tricks for gas grill lighting issues.
Hello. Are you frustrated because your gas grill doesn't get hot enough lately. The problem you are having indicates that you have to go through a procedure called "RESETTING THE REGULATOR". Follow these easy steps:
1. Turn the burners on for one full minute and then off.
2. Next, remove the regulator and the hose from the tank.
3. Then reconnect the tank to the regulator and hose.
4. And very slowly open the tank.
5. Last step is to fire up the burners and start cooking with you new hot flame.
The problem began the first time you opened the valve on the tank too quickly. In the future, always turn the tank valve on s-l-o-w-l-y to prevent this problem.. Joe
Probably 1 of 3 things: Check your LP tank valve at an LP filling station. Make sure both valve and tank are in working order. Next check for webs or cocoons up around where knob valves go into burners. You may have to remove burners to see into back of valves. Then swab orifice holes with a torch tip cleaner. Third, a Menards , LP outfitter/station, or grill shop should have a universal replacement rubber gas line and "regulator"(possibly plugged or stuck shut). Sometimes you end up with cheap/bad regulator out of the factory. Good luck and hope one these helps or does the trick.
Since 1995 all regulators (the part that attaches to the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a gas leak. This safety device can be inadvertently activated in two ways, putting the grill into what is commonly called “bypass”. The first way for the device to be activated is to leave one or more burner control knobs in the “ON” position when the LP cylinder valve is opened. The second is not to wait long enough to “start” the grill after opening the LP cylinder valve. The safety device in the regulator is activated each time that the LP cylinder valve is opened. The device resets itself when the gas pressure equalizes between the closed burner control valve and the regulator, through the hose. If a burner control knob is turned on before the gas pressure can equalize, the device will remain in “bypass”. The length of time necessary to wait to “start” the grill after turning on the LP cylinder valve is dependent on the length of the hose and outside air temperature. It is always good practice to wait a few seconds after opening the LP cylinder valve before turning on the burner control knob to start the grill.
Keep in mind that the safety device reacts to a gas leak. If a grill is in bypass, the gas connections and hose should be tested for leaks with a soap and water solution.
If the grill is in bypass, after checking for gas leaks do the following to get the grill out of bypass:
To reset the gas safety device: Open the barbecue lid. 1. Close the LP tank valve. 2. Turn your burner control knob to the OFF position. 3. Wait at least 5 minutes if the barbecue had been lit, then 4. Disconnect the hose from the LP tank. 5. Turn your burner control knob to the HIGH position. 6. Wait at least 2 minutes, and then turn the burner control knob to the OFF position. 7. Re-connect the hose to the LP tank.
Re-lighting the barbecue: 1. Open the barbecue lid. 2. SLOWLY open the LP tank valve all the way and wait 1 minute. 3. With the lid open, turn the burner control knob to the HIGH position. 4. Ignite the grill by pushing the crossover ignition button. 5. Close the barbecue lid. 6. The barbecue should reach 500 to 550 degrees in 10-15 minutes.
When you are done grilling: 1. Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position 2. Turn off the LP tank valve last.
* Always follow the re-lighting instructions whenever you use the adapter hose and larger tank.
