Question about Ducane Affinity 3100

I hardly get any flame to come out of the burner. It is like the regulator isn't letting enough gas through but I have changed regulators and the problem is still occurring. Any suggestions?

You're right. The regulator is not letting enough gas through, but there s a solution. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the grill hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (slow motion slow). until it is completely open. Turn on and light the burner that's farthest from the tank and turn to the highest setting. Are the flames on that burner the way they should be? If so, continue to light any remaining burners following the same procedure. If all burners now have high flames when set to high, you've solved the problem. If it didn't solve the problem, do the first part of the procedure over again. If that still fails to produce higher flames, you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can find them at any home improvement or hardware store that sells grills. Take your old one with you for comparison.

Hope this helped and Happy Grilling!

Why does the oven burner seem to be getting too much gas?


Possible problem with the gas regulator allowing too much gas through the system. On LP systems the regulator should be on the storage tank. The regulator on the range usually has a changeable cap and plunger. One direction is for LP and the other direction is NAT gas. In the LP position, the plunger actually holds the range regulator wide open letting the one on the storage tank do the job.

My gas grill sprays alot of gas when i first turn it on, the has very low flame


Hi axmaster892
You have a faulty gas regulator...
*********************************************
Gas Regulators are notorious for doing just what yours is doing.
After sitting in the same position for a length of time they freeze in that position, then along comes a grain of sand, or other debris and blocks the gas flow.
Remove the regulator if possible, if not try it in place with the tank removed.
Get a plastic headed hammer and gently but firmly tap on the regulator, your trying to free up the diaghram inside.
After tapping and freeing the regulator diaphram reinstall and you will be good to go.
If this does not work, the replace the regulator as it is defective.
Some regulators are ajustable, if you have one of those then try to adjust the regulator, you will see a cap on top of the regulator, that is where the adjustment screw is located.

What other appliances work on gas? The furnace? The water heater? A gas dryer? How much propane is in the tank? I wonder how the cooktop would work on a seperate tank? If it worked perfect on another tank I would say you have a plumbing problem.

This is a typical symptom of a failing LP regulator. Replace the regulator and hose that attaches to the LP tank. When a regulator is failing, it allows enough gas through for the burners to light, but not enough to keep all the burners going at the same level.

I am getting very low blue flames, when I light the back or middle burner the flames get smaller and sometimes go out. Grill not getting hot. Could this be the regulator??

Propane flame is not blue but too high


A yellow or orange flame means (1) too much fuel, or (2) not enough air. Make sure the air ports where the regulator attaches are clear and that spiders or bugs haven't built a nest in the burner tube. If that's all clear, it's likely that the propane regulator has failed and is allowing too much fuel to enter the burner tube. The regulators are inexpensive and are not repairable; get a replacement unit.
