Changed propane tank and no gas comes out. had new tank tested and it shows that it is working properly. Checked connector to make sure it ios properly and securely fastened, but no help


Hi eric sivin...
Sounds like your gas regulator is malfunctioning.
Normally there is no repair you can do to the regulator except to replace it with a new on.
If your lucky, you might have a regulator that you can adjust the gas flow rate.
If your regulator can be adjusted then try turning the screw down a turn or two and try to relight the BBQ grill.
If that did not work you can try to tap lightly with a hammer the regulator valve, sometimes the adjustment diaphram gets stuck and this procedure will make it loose again.
Please take time to rate me

The regulator seems to be closing off completely, and not flowing gas (LPG). We have converted cooktop from natural gas to propane per instructions manual -- changed orifice spuds, converted regulator and...


I HATE TO TRY AND EXPLANE THIS FOR FEAR SOME THING MAY GO WRONG DID YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER. FROM NATURAL GAS TO LP YOU SHOULD OF HAD TO CHANGE THE POSISTION OF THE ORVICE IN THE REGULATER THAT IS WHY YOU ARN'T GETTING THRU THE REGULATOR CHECK YOUR DIRECTIONS AGAIN SOME TIME YOU HAVE TO THIGHTEN THE NUT ON THE REGULATOR SO IT DISTORTS THE ORFICE TO LP, AND SOME MODELS YOU HAVE TO TURN THE ORFICE OVER. BECAREFUL AND TRY AGAIN

Flames are coming from the top of heater bricks. Thought pressure was to high so changed regulator on gas bottle but to no avail..! What else could it be ?


haven't had any time with delonghi heaters but usually the gas pressure can be controlled at heater by the valve they usually have hi/low adjustments on them there usually is a screw that is covering this adjustment and you must use your manommater to set heater to its high kpa rating (usually a slight adjustment under its hi setting is better to set too), changing the regulator will only change the supply gas to heater not the burning pressure which is done at valve in heater and most heaters regulate there own pressure so be careful using regulators they can drop the pressure to much to a heater and not let enough gas pressure through to heater so it can run at its full efficiency i have seen this done on a commercial job when comissioning heater could not get more than .5Kpa on .8Kpa natural gas appliance, your appliance L.P.G so pressure will be higher on hi setting but i'm guessing should be set at valve in heater or you could just have a faulty valve in appliance if you can't set valve

Brown TM210-4 kitchen range... how do i switch from LP Gas to Nat. Gas on this model? Is it just a regulator adjustment? or do i have to change the orifices as well?


Both. If this is a sealed top range, then you will have to change out the orifices and flip the cap on the regulator. If this is an open top style range (the top lifts up around the burners) then the orifices need to be adjusted and the regulator cap flipped. The oven/broiler orifices will also need to be changed or adjusted, depending on which kind they have. Some older models also require converting the oven thermostat from LP to natural gas (and vice versa) by turning the screw to the correct marked setting. If you have your owner's manual, it explains the conversion in it. If not we may be able to find it online for you to download. Douglas

Hi, I have 3 models 14S and want to convert to propane I changed orfices how do I change control valve to propane ?


On the gas valve is a regulator assembly. On Robertshaw models you change the assembly (held in place by 2 screws). On a Honeywell valve you change the spring inside the regulator assembly.

The flow gas coming from the burner is very slow. only heats up to less than 200 degrees. even the side burner is the same. i've cleaned it and changed tank. what is my next step?


It could be a defective LP gas regulator or a restriction somewhere in the gas line for the bbq. This can also happen if the propane tank is overfilled.

First make sure that the LP tank is not overfilled. If you open the bleeder hole on the tank(small screw next to the valve) there should be no liquids coming out. If liquid propane is coming out then the tank is overfilled. Keep the bleeder screw loose until the liquid disappears then tighten. Re-connect the tank and see if that fixes the problem.

Then inspect all the gas lines on the bbq. Make sure that there are no kinks or crushed lines.

Then take a look at the gas regulator. Try turning on all the burners then give the regulator a couple good taps on the housing with something solid. See if the burner changes size. If it does and then goes back down it could be the gas regulator. Also take a look at the regulator housing. There should be a very small hole on the housing and it might be labled "vent". Make sure that this little hole is not plugged with any debris or that can cause a low pressure problem. You can use a sewing needle to gently poke out the hole. You will know if it worked because the burners will become much higher. And you could also try disconnecting the hose and regulator assembly from the bbq then turn on the LP tank slowly with the regulator connected. You should get plenty of gas flow from the end of the hose. Then use your hand to block and release the flow a couple times to try and clear any debris that might stuck in the regulator.BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS!!! MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLEAR OF ANY SOURCES OF IGNITION BEFORE TRYING TO CLEAR THE REGULATOR. Then reconnect the hose regulator and tank to see if the problem is fixed. If you are getting very low flow from the hose with the regulator disconnected then it is probably a defective regulator. They are pretty standard and you can purchase a new LP hose and regulator assembly from most home improvement stores.

If the regulator checks out good then I would think that there is a restriction in the main gas line for the bbq after the regulator. You will need you dis-assemble the main line and blow it out with some compressed air to clear the restriction.

How do i install a lp conversion kit for a dlg2051w


It's really quite easy, I did my Maytag in about 30 minutes, the kit will have instructions.
Usually there is a regulator bypass piece and a nozzle change, find the correct parts in the bag and follow the gas line from the back to the regulator, replace the regulator piece with the bypass, then move to the end of the tube on the other side of the regulator, on the end will be the nozzle, just u]screw the old and screw in the new, leak check and you are done.
