Turn the gas tank Valve OFF, disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait five minutes and reconnect the to the tank valve and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Do you hear any whining? If not, light the remaining burners the same way. Hear any whining? If not, you solved the problem. Just always remember to open the tank valve very, very slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the hose/regulator assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store, that sell gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

My grill won't heat up. If I reset the regulator and turn a burner on I can light one burner and flame seems fine. When I turn a second burner on the flame goes down.


The pressure regulator has gone bad. It isn't expensive and can be bought at Walmart or other home improvement stores that sell outdoor grille parts.

On a kenmore 5 burner grill when lighting the fourth burner all of the grill shuts down, regardless of which is the fourth burner?


Sounds like the pressure regulator is malfunctioning. Try disconnecting your gas line. Open/Close all burners then reconnecting gas. If propane, don't turn bottle off before burners. Always turn burners off first, then bottle. then bottle on before burners. This primes the regulator to the proper pressure.

All 3 burners wont stay ignited at the same time. could it be a bad regulator?


It could be, but not necessarily. Did you turn the tank valve on slowly? Try turning the tank off, disconnect, then reconnect and open it very slowly. If that doesn't solve it, report back and we'll assist you further. Your regulator may be adjustable, so you can probably increase the pressure, if needed. If the first solution doesn't work, remove the cap from the top center of the regulator and turn the adjustment screw clockwise in 1/4 turns to increase pressure and see if that allows all 3 burners to stay lit. Other factors may be an issue, so if this doesn't work either, click on my username and scroll down my profile to my tips and tricks for gas grill lighting issues.

Low flame


Next time you use the grill turn the gas on slowly. For some unknown reason when turned on quickly the regulator reduces the gas flow.
Another problem with some gas fittings is an auto shutoff if detects the slightest leak. Sometimes the shutoff is not 100% and allows a small amount of gas causing the weak flame.

I have a ducane grill and it will not get hot. I


The most common cause of reduced flames is a pressure problem. Could be the gas regulator for the grill. When the burners are on try giving the gas regulator a tap with something hard and see if they change size. If they do then the rqulator could be sticking. And there is a very small hole on the regulator called a vent. If this hole gets plugged with dirt or grease you can get a low pressure problem. Look very carefully on the regulator housing for this small hole and verify that it is clear. Try using a small metal wire(like a tie strap for sandwich bags) to make sure it is clear. Also verify that the tank(if propane) is not overfilled. An overfilled propane tank will cause a pressure problem. You can turn the relief screw on the propane tank until no more liquid comes out to see if this fixes your problem.

There is a high pitch that people over approx age 30 cannot detect. My son and daughter complained of a high pitched noise coming from our gas grill, but I could hear nothing. I turned the gas tank off,...


What they are hearing is the regulator. There is a diaphragm in the regulator that is vibrating due to the rush of gas flowing through it. This is easily corrected. First, the next time you light the grill, turn the tank valve only one quarter to one half of a turn and light the grill, once the grill is lit, if you have trouble bringing the grill to the temperature you want, you can open the tank valve more and the noise shouldn't start. The reason the noise won't start then is because by that time, the regulator's diaphragm is at the temperature of the gas flowing through it and, subsequently, will not vibrate. If the noise starts again, you can go to just about any home improvement store and get a replacement regulator.

Grill with a full tank of gas will not get hot


Low flame, low temperature, yellow flame: This has become the biggest problem with many grills these days and it's almost always because of the regulator (the funny UFO shaped thing on the gas hose). Regulators seem to be stickier these days and when they stick you don't get enough gas to generate a good grilling temperature. To get your regulator unstuck you need to release the pressure on it. Follow these steps exactly:
  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally
To keep the regulator from sticking again make sure that you turn off the control valves first, then turn off the tank valve. Always open your tank valve slowly. If this doesn't work give it a second try. If you still have low flame then you probably have a faulty regulator that will need to be replaced.

Heat is about low or just a little higher on high setting
