My first question ... Is gas getting to the burners? Have you tried match lighting the burners with any success? If "NO" to both, if you're using bottled propane for fuel, is the tank empty or not turned ON?

If the tank has adequate gas, turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the 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 the valve is full open. Turn on and attempt to light the burner farthest from the tank. If it lights, turn it up to high and light the remaining burners the same way. If everything has returned to normal, you've solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the Tank Valve ON, VERY, VERY Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, did you have to remove the piezo ignitors when your replaced the burners. If so, the ignitors need adjusting, so that they are closer to the burner(s)

And, finally, if all of the above fails to solve the problem, you'll need to replace the grill hose/regulator assembly, as the regulator is permanently locked up. If you purchased the grill from Lowe's, you can get the whole assembly from them. Make sure you take the old one with you, so that you can match it up with the new one.

Hope this helps solve your problem and Happy Grilling!!

I have a garland h283 i want to convert to nat gas from lp what is the orrafice diameter? I would like to drill the lp oriffice out. Also do i need new pilots?


Most gas ranges that can be converted between LP and natural gas include an orifice kit usually located by the gas connection and regulator. Some ranges cannot be converted. I doubt you will be able to find any documentation that tells you the size of the required orifices. Remember that there is an orifice for each of the surface burners as well for the oven and broiler burner(s)

Can i drill out LP hole in cap for NG


Yes you can, but only if you know the BTU rating of the burners. Then you need to know what size drill bit to use to drill each orifice. Plus you will need to eliminate the LP regulator when you hook it up to your house's already regulated natural gas line. When you hook up any gas appliance, it needs to have it's own shut off valve installed on the gas line. I also like to install a quick-disconnect adapter after the shut off so I can release the hose from the grill and put the grill away when it's not in use. I have LP/Nat gas conversion charts available to look up drill sizes if you need to know more details. Keep in mind, that if the grill does not state the individual burner BTU ratings, but only the total BTU rating, you will have to divide that rating by the number of burners. Douglas

I have a full propane tank. I bbq'd about 3 weeks ago, same full bottle. Grill will not light. Good spark at ignitor. Used lighter and lit for a few seconds with low flame on high. No other burners will...


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

Does conversion from LP gs to Natural gas on Ducane 30400040 (essentially makes it a model 30400041) require changing the inlet orofice on the IR burner ? I purchased conversion kit that included all new...


Did the conversion kit give you an LP orifice for every new gas valve? LP gas orifices have smaller holes than Nat gas orifices. Can you smell gas when you turn on the IR burner by itself? Some burners styles have an air adjustment on the end that fits over the orifice. Make sure it's getting enough air. Also make sure your ignitor sparker is positioned where the spark can ark against the top of the burner. Ducane grills have rotary ignitors, so turn it (with gas off) and see if you can actually see where it's sparking. If it's not sparking in the right place, it will be difficult to light.

No spark on left side burners


Hi, This could be caused by something spilled on the burner, look at the electrode where the spark comes from and clean it up and make sure the metal right above it is clean as well. You should see spark at each burner regardless of which one your turning on. Assuming everything is clean, if you don't see spark on 2 of the burners, it could be 2 broken wires or a defective spark module (not likely if right side lights). Good luck

Roper LP Gas Range Model S8757X4 - Burners on top will not light have to do it manually. I can hear the electronic clicking sometimes and sometimes they will light on their own, but mostly light them...


if you can her it clicking that is a good thing can you see the blue spark between the electrode and the burner? some times cleaning knocks these little electrodes out of line or plugs the tiny holes directly in line with the spark ( try a tooth pick to clean out the holes) Good Luck

Burners ignite but wont light


Are you on Natural Gas or LP?

If on LP, you may need to change the jets on the burners on top. Most times, when oven and broiler work and top doesn't, and you have spark, your jets are wrong size. Look on back of unit for a cardboard attached to unit, should have jets stuck to cardboard, if notgo to store where you bought unit and buy jets.
