Ok on the propane tank valve there will be a black assy. connected to the output side of the valve, if this is the black knob you are talking about it might be stuck if this is the case you might take a pair of slip joint pliers and try taking it loose that way looking at the knob from the front with the tank behind you it will turn counter clokwise to loosen it.

Hope this helps Ya
please rate me.

Changed tanks like I always do went to lite heard this propane blast then it lite but doesnt regulate like before.


what does that mean? doesn't regulate like before? it is common to trip the check valve with a new tank because the over-fill prevention device float displaced the liquid in the cylinder which causes vaporized propane to hit the check valve too hard. the tank thinks it is leaking and shuits down gas flow so it is difficult or impossible to cook. reset the check valve by turning everything off. disconnect tank at regulator. turn grill valves on high, all of them. count to 100. turn the valves completely off. re attach the cylinder at the regulator. turn tank valve to turn on but very, very slow for the first full 360 degrees so the gas can only seep-through slowly. we do not want the gas to rush out and hit the check valve too hard.

How do I loosen a propane canister knob


Are you asking about how to loosen the knob on the tank or how to remove the tank from the grill's holder?
If you're trying to turn the tank valve to ON, you turn the knob Counter Clockwise. If you trying to remove the On/Off knob itself, you remove the screw in the center of the knob. Most require a Star Head screw driver of bit to do this. Be sure the tank valve if completely OFF, before attempting this.

To remove the tank from the grill holder, simply lift the holder off the top rim of the tank. It may be snug, so it sill require some force.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Not sure how to place propane on to grill


There is a location to place the tank on your grill and there is a regulator that screws on to the tank. So tighten the regulator on to the tank and then you turn the knob on top of the tank and your ready to cook.

Thermos Grill2GO gets warm but not hot.


Often the problem is pretty simple. I forget to turn off the control knobs when turning on the propane. This triggers the new safety mechanism in the regulators that restricts the gas flow. To re-set, disconnect everything, then reconnect with all knobs in the off position. Turn on the propane at the tank to "pressurize" the system. Sometimes I have to do it twice to get it to work right! If not - I'd suggest you contact customer support at Char-Broil (they make it) and get some tips.

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.

My weber gas grill suddenly does not heat up enough. It has been working for two years and suddenly the amount of flame is tooooooo small to cook.


Hello. You may not have enough propane left in the tank for it to work properly, you may not have turned the tank valve to the full open position, or your valve safety device may have kicked in. IF this last item is what happened read on:
To reset the check valve and get back to cooking on your gas barbecue grill, first
  • turn everything off. Turn off the grill, the rotisserie, the side burner and the LP gas cylinder tank.
  • Once everything is turned off disconnect the propane tank from the gas grill regulator by unscrewing it or pulling the quick-release on older or retro-fitted propane cylinders.
  • Now turn the grill on. I know, it is dis-connected from the gas tank but we want to ensure that the pressure in the gas lines or any gas in the burners is released.
  • Leave the grill, side burner, rotisserie, etc on high for a few minutes with the hood open before turning all the valves back to the off position.
  • Make sure. Most gas barbeque grill valves must be pushed in to turn them and if turning is attempted without pushing the knob, they will not turn to the “on” position.
  • With the grill, et al turned off reconnect the propane tank and slowly turn the hand wheel to the open position.
  • Slowly. The trick here is to turn the hand wheel slowly.
When the propane gas tank is new or newly-filled, the gas is full and the OPD is pushing slightly on the top filled area and the gas will want to burst through the valve. Slow it down by turning the valve on slowly and the check valve will reset itself.

Propane tank knob is stuck


same problem as other posted. If you turn on the propane bottle valve too quickly, it activates the safety valve and shuts it off until you get it turned on with a device your dealer (mine was Amerigas) puts his tool in it to reset it. DON't turn these valves open fast in the futuere. A nail inserted and a strike with hammer may fix it, but I recommend your gas dealer.

My weber gas grill will not heat up past 300F


Hi John,

I just experienced the same exact problem ! I just bought a brand new Weber E-310 a 3 burner grill.
After I seasoned it up with cooking oil,I turned all the burners to high, opened the tank and clicked electrnic button several times , the grill was on then I went inside, I came out about an half-hour later and it was saying around 275 degrees..
I looked into my manual and there is a gas limit control valve that shuts down gas flow, when it thinks there is too much gas flow.

Sloution;
Turn the propane gas knob to off
Turn the gas grill knobs to Off.
Click the igniter several times to clear out any gas.
Then unscrew the regulator from the tank,( I then blew into the tank hole and regulator),
Screw back on the regulator to the propane tank.
I then clicked igniter again couple of times.
Now open your propane tank.
Then turn on front burner while clicking igniter, this will lite 1st burner.
Then turn 2nd burner on low then to high.
And if you have 3rd burner or more, turn low then to high!

John I did this and my grill went to 600 plus in a few minutes!!

The problem was turning the gas grill knobs on first then opening the tank then lighting...
You have to open propane tank with knobs off, THEN AS SOON AS YOU TURN ON 1ST KNOB, YOU MUST IGNITE ...

The temp/flame on my weber grill won't get hotter


Hello,

Check the excess flow safety device, which is part if the barbeque to cylinder connection, may have activated. To reset the excess flow safety device turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve off.
Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to high. Wait at least 1 minute . Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve slowly.
