If you grill is fueled by and LP grill tank, the tank may be near empty and doesn't have enough fuel to maintain combustion. However, if it lights, but the flames are low, it may be a case of the OPD tank valve on the propane tank has locked up your regulator. In which case, turn the tank OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose. Now, turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is completely open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. If the flame appears to now be normal, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. If all burners have returned to normal height, you solved the problem. Always remember to turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

If none of the above solved your problem, you may need to replace the regulator/hose assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

Q 100 will not light but I hear the gas coming into the unit


Try lighting it with a fireplace lighter or long match. If it lights, your problem is your igniter. Either keep using lighters or replace the igniter.

I have a small propane reddy heater with an electric ignitor if power is out can i manually light it


Yes, you can. Use either a butane grill lighter or a long stick match. Make sure the control knob is in the "light" position and the wick is in the right position. Light the long stick match or butane grill lighter, press the control knob in and while holding it in, touch the flame of the match or butane grill lighter to the wick and the wick should ignite. Once it ignites, quickly remove the match without knocking the tip off into the heater.

How do I light the grill manually


Get a butane grill lighter. Open the hood of your grill. Remove the cooking grates and one by one turn the burner to low. Light the butane grill lighter prior to turning the burner on and as you turn the burner to low touch the flame of the lighter to the burner. Leave all burners on low, until you replace the cooking grates. Be very very careful, as you don't want gas to buildup before each burner is lit.

Then contact Brinkman for replacement ignitors.

I am scared to death of gas grills -- nearly burned my hair and eyebrows off years ago -- husband always lights it -- he's out of town -- how do I light a Weber gas grill?


Be sure your outdoors in the open. Be sure that the cover is off. Use a large match stick (fire place)or a butane grill lighter to burn the gas. Place the lite match/lighter to the burner head and open the gas bottle. After 6 seconds, If the burner head does not light shut the gas bottle off. Try again till it lights.

Grill will not ignite even with manually trying


Can you hear or small gas? It's possible to may have turned the propane tank valve on too fast. Close the tank valve, disconnect it, then reconnect it. Slowly turn the tank valve back on and try lighting it again. Hopefully this is your solution, but let us know if you need more assistance.

Own a charmglow gas grill 3 burner, having trouble igniting burners will not ignite, how do you match start


I have used those long-necked lighters as a temporary thing. You can buy replacement igniter kits at Lowe's/HomeDepot/similar, and they are easy to use. I hate to admit it, but I have taken the igniter out of the side burner that is attached to the grill and used it, until I bought a replaement. Match starting is a less than favorable option, as you are putting your hands and face in a bad place, but if you just have to do it, remove the grill grate over the burner that you intend to light. Get your fire source to the burner, and turn the gas on low. If the burner doesn't light pretty quickly, remove the fire source,shut off tha gas and wait several minutes with the lid still up for the gas to dissipate. You don't want to be trying to light the grill and have it flash on you. Most grills have an opening at the rear if the grill for manual lighting. Even so, the long lighters are waaaaaay better than the old kitchen match. I'm sure that you know, but always have the lid open when lighting the grill. (I just had to say it!)
Hope that this helps...really!
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rete this solution! Thanx!
