Won't start despite plenty of gas

Full propane tank but won't light. Where can I get service? I think it's the control valve.
Thoughts?

    I have had my heater for about a year and have only used it a few times. This year I tried turning it on and I couldn't. The pilot turns on, but as soon as I let the knob go out so I could chose a temperature (low-high), it turns off. I have tried this many times but no luck. I think it is fairly new to have to go through all this trouble. Any ideas?

Turn off propane. Disconnect propane tank from barbecue. Open burner valves for about 20 seconds. Close valves. Reattach propane tank. Slowly open propane tank valve. Turn on burner and ignite

I'm trying to start grill, it has a full propane tank , it ignites then it turns off


You might have a bad propane tank. If the tank is new take it back and tell them you think the valve is bad. They should exchange it free of charge. Sometimes the valves on the tanks go bad, then they just don't get very much gas and can easily shut off.

George, you may have plenty of gas in your propane tank, but is the tank valve turned on and is the gas line shutoff valve at or near the heater turned on? If all of these are on, you'd better wait for you propane provider to service it.

Grill does not get hot. I have a fresh bottle of propane. Hose is not kinked. Grill is maybe 6 - 10 years old.


hi,
When a new or newly filled propane tank is attached to your gas grill, the OPD is usually at its maximum limit position above a tank filled to capacity. Propane may come through the valve too strongly due to the additional pressure of being full and the OPD displacement. The propane tank goes into check and limits gas flow when too much pressure hits the valve. Some grill manufacturers provide instructions for this in the users manuals but most people do not read the manual. Many grillers believe replacement parts are needed and burners, ignitors and regulators get replaced without reason. Depending on how efficient the grill is operating, some grills attached to a tank in check will not ignite and others will light but cannot reach cooking temperatures because the tank has limited the amount of propane released. Sometimes the food will be unable to exceed 200 degrees in temperature because the propane tank is in check.


Gas grill replacement parts are available and are sometimes necessary, low or no gas flow indicates a different typr of repair. Most grillers accept instructions and the problem is corrected in minutes -- but believe it or not I have had a few insist on purchasing replacement parts.
How do I fix grill?
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 all grill burners in the on position for 3 - 5 minutes before turning them off. Make sure. Most gas 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. Propane in a new or very full tank will be under more pressure, especially with the OPD floating in position. The extra pressure will come through the tank valve stronger. Turn the gas tank slowly allowing small increments of propane to enter the grill.


Once this is complete, you should be able to turn the grill on high and ignite your gas grill burner. Your cooking heat should be back to normal and cooking times decreased. If the problem persists, try this process again to make sure you followed every step. The check valve exists to save your life if there is a leak in any of the gas fittings. Constant check valve issues could imply a gas leak and a visit from your local gas grill service technician may be necessary.
To find a leak, turn the grill valves to the off position and the gas tank valve to the full on position. This should pressurize the gas line. Spray soapy water on all the fittings and look for bubbles just like checking for the leak in a flat tire.
Do not attempt to correct a gas leak on your own. While a check valve error when your gas grill will not get hot or will not ignite is a user education error and an issue corrected by learning about your propane tank, a gas leak should be corrected by a licensed gas service technician. When you are grilling, turn the propane tank on first and then turn on your grill. When you are done cooking, turn the gas tank off first and then turn off the grill valves. The process releases the pressure in the gas grill hose and manifold which allows the gas tank to release pressure by filling these lines. Read the safety features of your gas grill, clean it when necessary and replace used and failing parts. Aside from that be safe, eat well and have fun.

thanks.

Gas Not Flowing


Try this. Turn tank off, open all three burners for a minute or 2. Close burners. Open tank very slowly. Open primary burner, (usually the front burner) and try to relight. Should work, but if not check that valve is secured to tank and check for leaks with soapy water.

Outdoor grill with no gas pressure, little heat


TURN THE TANK OFF , THEN REMOVE BURNER ASSEMBLY AND CHECK FOR OBSTRUCTION IN THE GAS LINE AREA . IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR SPIDERS TO BUILD WEBS INSIDE THE TUBES AND CAUSE MAJOR PROBLEMS
