The problem was probably not the regulator, it's the OPD valve in the propane tank. OPD valves came about 6 or so years ago. They are an overfill prevention device. The key to overcoming your problem is fairly simple. Turn the tank valve OFF, disconnect the grill hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Now, here"s the real secret (do this very time you turn the tank ON). Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until the tank valve is fully open. Starting with the burner farthest from the tank, light it and turn it to its highest setting. If the flame height appears to be normal, do the same thing with the remaining burner(s). If all the burner's flame heights appear to now be normal, you have solved the problem. Just remember to do this every time you turn the tank valve ON.

Hope this advice solves your problem. Please let me know and please don't forget to rate my response to you. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Propane flow very low? any idea on ther cause? it started overnight, the tank is full.


Hello. What you are dealing with is due to the new safety feature on your tank. Do this. Turn off the tank and disconnect it from the grill. Then reattach the hose to the tank and VERY slowly open the tank. This should solve the problem. ALWAYS open the tank very slowly from now on. J.

An odd thing with many propane gas grills is how the regulator functions. If the tank is opened too fast the regulator over-adjusts and delivers no gas. Try this: Turn tank off and open all burner controls. This should clear the line of any gas. Close burner controls and open tank very slow. Now lite and temp should go up.

Our weber grill is suddenly getting too hot... even with only 1 of the 3 burners turned on it is over 400 degrees... any ideas?


Sounds like the regulator is not controlling the flow of gas. Try this. 1. Turn gas tank and burner control knobs off. 2. Turn tank valve on VERY slow. 3. Open front burner knob on and lite grill. Wait a minute and turn on addition burners, (if needed).

Gas flow


Your regulater connected on tank has a shut down safety inside of it. disconnect tank hookup, then reconnect, always open tank valve slowely when you open to fast regulator thinks there is a leak and starts shutting down valve to slow leak. Opening slowely will solve your problem.

Glas flow will almost shut down once i turn on the second burner


hi my name is mark, let me see if i understand your problem. you light the 1st burner and get a good flame. you light the 2nd burner with the 1st burner lite and it starves both burners of gas. if this grill is a lp grill and you have propane in the tank. the regulater is the problem.

Regulator freezing up


did you replace the regulater with a manufatures replacement for you grill or did you use an after market one? the reason i ask is because propane is very cold in liquid form and if your regulater allows more of the liguid to go to your burners than it should the moisture in the air will contact the outside of your regulater and freeze up on it. excessive propane would not change the color of the flame, however the i would check the burners to make sure that there are no blocked holes this would cause this to happen as well you are still safe to use the grill but cleaning the burners is a good idea. also there is a rating on the regulater make sure it matches the old one you replaced it with........good luck
