I have a ducane 3040040 lp grill. I cant get the burners to light. the ignitors are working and the give off about a 3 inch flame. gas is coming out of the orifices' but dose not seem to have alot of pressure behind it. I tried the reset procedure(turn all burners to high for one minute,then rehook up gas). I have also tried new burners but no dice.??

It sounds like something got disconnected between your gas line and your venturi (which deliver gas to your burners. Take out the grills and whatever holds your rocks or ceramic briquettes and look at the connection where the flame is coming from. It may be obvious what has come apart, and the fix may be as simple as pushing it back together.

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.

Side burner on my Ducane 30400040 LP gas grill has a tall yellow/orange flame. How do I adjust?


Try blowing the burner out with compressed air. They're not adjustable but can get clogged up and change the air to gas mix.

I was given a ducane 20002301 2 burner with rotisserie and when I ignite and have on high there is not much flame. I know very little about gas grills


Could be two things, the first is a bad regulator, easy to replace and not very expensive. The other is a blockage in the burner orifices. For this you have to take the burners out and check inside the burner venturis and then see if you can unscrew the orifices on the valves and clean out any blockage.

Meridian 5 burner trouble


Yes you can fix it. Carefully remove the screws that hold the panel where the burner knobs are, There are 3 screws on each panel under the side shelf. There is another screw up underneath the face plate as well. Once the screws are out pull the face plate up and out so that all the tubes are disengaged. It should rest about 2 inches tilted back. Now remove the grates and burner covers and inspect the burner tubes. You will most likely find that spider webs or hornets have blocked off the gas flow to the burner. carefully clean every burner tube out and put everything back. You also may want to use a bit of sandpaper on the ignitor tip. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. It seems all Ducanes attract spiders on the burners...

Lighting Problem/2 year-Old Ducane Grill


Do you have enough gas pressure coming out of the regulator and gas valve? You'll need a pressure guage for this.

If yes, try taking out the burners and cleaning them with a wire brush, especially the flame spreading sections.
