Question about Brinkmann 5 Burner with Smoker 8101750S
Here's the problem and solution. The LP tank has what's called an OPD Valve. It prevents overfilling. However, if you turn the tank valve ON as you would normally do, it shoots high pressure to the grill's regulator and locks it up.
Solution: Turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Now, turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow), until the valve is fully open. Turn ON and light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. Repeat that procedure with the remaining burners. Have the flames returned to a normal height? If so, you solved the problem. If not, repeat the procedure again, but this time leave the hose disconnected for 10 minutes. If both attempts fail, you will need to replace the grills hose and regulator, as the regular is locked an won't release itself. You can find the hose/regulator assembly at any home improvement store or hardware store.
Just remember to always turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY, SLOWLY,
