Start by closing jets (clockwise). Then turn jets 1 full turn counterclockwise. this should get engine started. Then adjust jets left or right to fine tune,until engine starts running smoothly.

New weber what gas to be washed before using


You do not need to wash anything before using it but to keep it in good condition you need to use a propane which is sold already in his own size and it is the one of the most clean gas around the world! This is a suggestion from one that has a Weber BBq too and i never had problems. Of course you need to check it every once in awhile to avoid it to plug.

How do you replace burners on Jenn-air 720-0337


First, remove the grill grates, then the flame tamers to access the burners. As you face the grill, carefully lift up the end of the burner farthest from you (It may or may not have a cotter pin holding it in. If it does, remove the cotter pin with a pair of needle nose pliers). As you lift it up, it should pull away from the burner orifice (inside the control panel). And that's all there is to it.To reinstall the burner, do everything in reverse. But, there is no need to replace the cotter pin. It was there for shipping purposes.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Happy Grilling!!

I push the button but it just clicks. there is a disconnected white wire but I don't know where to connect it


That white wire runs from the ignition module to the spark igniter on the burner(s). Check the igniter for the one that's missing the wire. Then slide the wire up on the bottom tip of the igniter. It will look like a large diameter needle.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Where do you hook the sideburner ingintor wire to?


You connect the wire to the pin on the bottom of the peizo ingnitor (it looks like a 3/4"' needle) . The sleeve on the end of the wire should just slide onto the pin. Make sure you push it on snugly. You'll find it underneath the side burner.

Hope this helps to get you up and grilling. Please let me know. Thanks.

The flow gas coming from the burner is very slow. only heats up to less than 200 degrees. even the side burner is the same. i've cleaned it and changed tank. what is my next step?


It could be a defective LP gas regulator or a restriction somewhere in the gas line for the bbq. This can also happen if the propane tank is overfilled.

First make sure that the LP tank is not overfilled. If you open the bleeder hole on the tank(small screw next to the valve) there should be no liquids coming out. If liquid propane is coming out then the tank is overfilled. Keep the bleeder screw loose until the liquid disappears then tighten. Re-connect the tank and see if that fixes the problem.

Then inspect all the gas lines on the bbq. Make sure that there are no kinks or crushed lines.

Then take a look at the gas regulator. Try turning on all the burners then give the regulator a couple good taps on the housing with something solid. See if the burner changes size. If it does and then goes back down it could be the gas regulator. Also take a look at the regulator housing. There should be a very small hole on the housing and it might be labled "vent". Make sure that this little hole is not plugged with any debris or that can cause a low pressure problem. You can use a sewing needle to gently poke out the hole. You will know if it worked because the burners will become much higher. And you could also try disconnecting the hose and regulator assembly from the bbq then turn on the LP tank slowly with the regulator connected. You should get plenty of gas flow from the end of the hose. Then use your hand to block and release the flow a couple times to try and clear any debris that might stuck in the regulator.BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS!!! MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLEAR OF ANY SOURCES OF IGNITION BEFORE TRYING TO CLEAR THE REGULATOR. Then reconnect the hose regulator and tank to see if the problem is fixed. If you are getting very low flow from the hose with the regulator disconnected then it is probably a defective regulator. They are pretty standard and you can purchase a new LP hose and regulator assembly from most home improvement stores.

If the regulator checks out good then I would think that there is a restriction in the main gas line for the bbq after the regulator. You will need you dis-assemble the main line and blow it out with some compressed air to clear the restriction.

Grill heats up slowly and never gets to top heat.


Hi Nancy and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

After a BBQ has sat for a while there are things that need to be checked.

1. Remove the burner(s) and check for anything in the gas path area. Use a BBQ stick if necessary to remove any cobwebs.

2. While the burner(s) is/are removed check the burner orifices for any build up and wipe it clean with a dry cloth.

3. There is a possibility after 7 years that the regulator has started the corrosion process and the diaphram is sticking not allowing full pressure to the gas control valves. If you suspect an LPG reguator problem just replace it. After 7 years it is time anyway.

That should get your temps back to normal again. If not then you may have to disassemble the gas valves and clean them. Carb cleaner or engine degreaser works great on the greese build up. Engine degreaser however will discolor things if you do not rinse it off quite well right away. Same thing goes for oven cleaner.

Thanks for using FixYa.

One side of the grill base will not rise up when we hit the pedal. one side work, the other doesn't. any clue how to fix?we have put the grill on it and followed the instructions but only only side goes...


One one side, there is a gas strut which is connected to the other side via a cable, similar to that which you would find on a bicycle for the brake. When the strut side raises (it uses this cable and a series of pulley's) it shortens the cable and raises the other side. With use, this cable where's and can slide off the pulley. It could also be that this cable has been damaged, although the prior is more likely the case. It's fairly easy to disassemble and inspect. One regular and one small philips screw driver, along with a pair of needle nose plier are all the tools necessary. If you would like further info. please let me know.

One burner is burning, the other keep popping


Clean the orifices and small holes with a needle or paper clip. Also clean each control valve by inserting pin into hole. Shake out any dust from the tubes. Use wire brush in some areas. Good luck!

Coleman stove (Coleman fuel only). Won't stay lit. I have taken pump tube apart, seems OK; soaked tank in denatured alcohol (to remove lacquer buildup). Lights OK but goes out -- can still hear fuel moving...


Is it possible that the part that screws into the propane cylinder is not opening the bottle all the way. This would alow enough gas to flow through to light but will not keep a flame because there is just not enough fuel flow. If this is the case you most likely can't fix it and need a new one. How old is it, if you can return it for a new one, do that, just to be on the safe side.
