In a round-about way, the problem is with the new tank of gas. Here's what you need to do to correct the problem.

Turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the main burner of the grill, that's farthest from the tank and turn it to HIGH, Has the flame height on that burner returned to normal? If so, light the remaining main burners the same way. Do all the flame heights, now look normal? If so, you solve the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve on very, very slowly.

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

Side burner lights but not main burner on gas grill


If you smell gas, don't attempt to light the burner. Instead, turn the gas off and inspect the fuel tank, lines and burners once the smell of has has cleared. Always grill where you have adequate ventilation and perform all repairs only after the grill has fully cooled from use.

Char-broil front avenue, model 463230703, igniter lights side burner but not the 3 main burners.


Sounds like a regulator problem. As it takes less gas to light the side burner, than it does to ligh the main burners.

To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.


Hope this helps you troubleshoot & solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Just purchased new Brinkman 5 burner Pro series. Worked fine when I tested it but now the main burner is the only one that will ignite and it won't stay on. The side burner works great.


First, check the gas line hose from the tank to the grill. Look for kinks or twisting that would restrict the flow of gas to the burners. If you find any, turn the gas tank valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank and straighten the hose, before reconnecting it to the tank. Then open the gas valve Very, Very Slowly, until it's fully open.

If you didn't find any kinks or twist, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF, Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
2. Turn on any pair of burners to High for io minute and then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes has elapsed, reconnect the hose to the tank.
4. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until it's fully open.
5. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look
correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look correct?
If so, you solved the problem!

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

More than likely, the electrode spark ignitors on your main burners need to be cleaned. They will get covered with grease over time. Also check the wiring from the ignitor module to each spark ignitor being sure that all wiring is firmly in place. To clean the electrode(s) ... a cotton ball dipped in alcohol will work fine.

Hope this helped you solve the problem and Happy Grilling!

Burner igniters spark but do not ignite the burners. Do I need to replace them or is there some way to clean something. Also, the rotisserie burner will not ignite, and it has never been used.


All the ignitors work (spark), but none of the burners light ... is usually caused by and inadequate gas supply. Since you didn't didn't mention what the grill is fueled by (Natural Gas or Propane Gas), I going to assume it's Propane. So, turn the propane tank valve to OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank, Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow) , until it's fully open. Try lighting the burner farthest from the tank first. If it lights properly, turn the burner knob to the highest setting and continue to light the remaining main surface burner(s) the same way. If all lightt and the flame height is as it should be, you solved the problem. If it doesn't, either your tank is empty or the grill hose/regulator assembly needs to be replaced. You can purchase one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills. Take your old one with you for comparison.

If it's fueled by Natural Gas, make sure the gas line shutoff valve is turned ON all the way.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

I just bought a new tank of gas. The problem is that the flame now only lasts a few seconds. I've tried reconnecting the gas but this has not worked. Any suggestions would be great.


When you turn the tank valve on, do it VERY, VERY SLOWLY. But, first, disconnect the grill hose from the tank, after you have turned the tank OFF. Leave it disconnected for 5 minutes, reconnect it to the tank and turn the tank valve on, as described above. Light each burner separately and turn it to the highest flame setting, before lighting the next burner and so on.

With any luck, this reset the grill hose regulator. If it did, remember to turn the tank on VERY, VERY SLOWLY,after it has been shut off.

If it didn't solve the problem the first time, do it again. Then if that fails, you need a new grill hose and regulator. Which, you can purchase at Lowe's or Home Depot. Just take your existing hose and regulator with you, so that you'll get the right length and size. It's ok for the new one to be a little longer, but not shorter.

Hope this helped to get you up and grilling again.

Look for spider webs in the venturi tubes, check the orfices or it could be faulty controls. Verify the tank working properly by trying on another grill.

Very low flame, like very little gas is getting thru, tank is ful


Okay, what you are dealing with is called "vapor-lock". The way these grills need to be turned off is, close the tank valve first and after the burners go out, then turn the burners off. The way you are doing it is trapping the gas and you are getting a weak flame. Fortunately this is an easy fix. First, light the grill by turning the gas valve open, then turn the burners on to light the grill...as soon as that is done, close the gas valve on the tank then turn the burners off. Repeat this procedure until you get a good flame. If this procedure hasn't fixed the problem after the third time, you need a new regulator and regulators are easy to find in any home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot.

Gas shuts off


Try turning on the gas at the tank with the burners turned off. Wait a minute or two for the pressure to equalize and then turn on the burner and try lighting it. It should work. If not check the venturi and see if an insect or spider might have blocked it so the air mix is interrupted. It may be that your regulator needs replacement. If you have a gas grill that works your might try switching them if they have the same size fittings and see if it works then. New regulators can be found at LP gas dealers, hardware stores, and the big boxes like Home Depot, Menards, Lowes and Wall-Mart.

When turning off any gas grill it is best to turn off the tank first, then the burner after the flame is out. This especially applys to the tanks with the overfill protection device.

Good Luck
