Question about Brinkmann Charmglow 810-7400-S Propane Grill
Just purchased from Home Depot on 8/30/08 and regulator freezes up not letting the propane supply get to the burners to heat up the grill. Went back to Home Depot to exchange regulator and still had problems. Going to take back to Home Depot because of bad reviews about Brinkman grills on the web from other consumers.
1. Are you using a portable LP cylinder? LP Regulators freeze up when the liquid part is the propane is flowing through the regulator this is caused by an overfilling of the propane tank.
2. If the BTU capacity of the regulator is not high enough to cover the BTUs of your grill, the regulator is working too hard and potentially pulling liquid (not vapor as it should)
I would suggest calculating the BTUs of your grill and looking to see what the capacity of the regulator you are using.

Check to see if Coleman has an attachment to replace the regulator, so that you can use a five gallon cylinder with your stove and your own regulator.

SOURCE: Gas Grill regulator freeze
The regulator probably was not the problem (but it may be a problem now).
Your newly filled propane tank was most likely overfilled as this will cause regulator frosting and also damage.
You should return the propane cylinder to where you filled it and explain to them the problem.
You should also replace your regulator now as it may have been damaged by the freezing.

You can buy a gas pressure guage from any HVAC supply house, and possibly at a gas utility office or the retailer that sold the grill.
It taps into the manifold, or gas valve.
For most LP systems you are looking for 11 to 14 PSI but double check with your system. You may can find it on the owners manual or on the data sticker.
Be shure to shut off the gas before you remove the plug and hook up the guage. Most plugs are either allen wrench or square head plugs.

If you have not had it for the full warranty period, by all means. (I would call their Customer Service number first.) Here is the site for phone numbers:
