Question about Brinkmann Charmglow 810-7400-S Propane Grill

1 Answer

Regulator freezing up

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.

SOURCE: BBQ Galore Capt'n Cook 4 burner gas grill won't get hot.

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.

I have a 40000 btu all pro and it lights but the line freezes up and it starts throwing a large flame out, what is going on ?


Sounds like the regulator is bad or the tank is overfilled. The liquid propane is supposed to vaporize under high pressure within the tank, and the regulator lowers the pressure to feed the burner. It seems that your regulator is getting liquid and it is vaporizing at low pressure in the regulator. When the liquid vaporizes at low pressure it gets super cold.

Have a type 6980 gas regulator not getting enough gas to the burner


Hi leonard4538

Regulators are notorious for doing just what yours is doing.
After sitting in the same position for a length of time they freeze in that position, then along comes a grain of sand, or other debris and blocks the gas flow.
Remove the regulator if possible, if not try it in place with the tank removed.
Get a plastic headed hammer and gently but firmly tap on the regulator, your trying to free up the diaghram inside.
After tapping and freeing the regulator diaphram reinstall and you will be good to go.
If this does not work, the replace the regulator as it is defective.
Some regulators are ajustable, if you have one of those then try to adjust the regulator, you will see a cap on top of the regulator, that is where the adjustment screw is located.

Portable patio heater is a DCS Phoenix Professional Patio Heater Model PHF8-DWBZ-L. Burner ignites and operates for a few minutes. Then teh flame is reduced to a short yellow flame. Regulator is covered...


The regulator covered with frost is the problem. It freezes the gas and the gas line up. But, usually this only occurs when it has been exposed to subfreezing (in the teens) temperature for a long period of time. The quick fix, is to soak a bath towel in hot water, ring it out and quickly wrap it around the regulator. Once it thaws, the gas will start flowing again and you can light the burner. Generally, once it's flowing and being used, it won't freeze up again, right a way. Most propane companies add ethanol to the propane in the winter, to help keep it from freezing in the lines and the regulator.

Hope this helped answer you question and provided, at least a quick fix solution.

Hi i purchased a brinkman 2545 5 burner grill already preassembled from walmart when i connected it to propane tank i tried to burn off and it would only heat to 275 degrees i read troubleshooting about...


Glad you saw the troubleshooting part concerning the regulator, but unless you turned the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow) after reconnecting the hose. That's the problem. The hose should remain disconnected for 5 minutes, before reconnecting. As the regulator needs time to reset itself. If that doesn't solve the problem, be sure the propane tank has enough gas to supply all the burners properly.

Hope this helps to get you up and grilling.

The regulator is freezing up. I just replaced the tubing, regulator, and hose with new oarts. Still freezing up


Are you opening your propane tank valve all the way? This will cause what you are seeing and there is an easy fix - when you open your propane bottle valve, only open it one to two turns and your regulator shouldn't freeze up.

Regulator freezing up


did you replace the regulater with a manufatures replacement for you grill or did you use an after market one? the reason i ask is because propane is very cold in liquid form and if your regulater allows more of the liguid to go to your burners than it should the moisture in the air will contact the outside of your regulater and freeze up on it. excessive propane would not change the color of the flame, however the i would check the burners to make sure that there are no blocked holes this would cause this to happen as well you are still safe to use the grill but cleaning the burners is a good idea. also there is a rating on the regulater make sure it matches the old one you replaced it with........good luck

The regulator freezes on my three burner Barbeques Galore Grill


This can happen when an excessive amount of propane gas is used or when if the tank you are using is not sitting upright, therefore allowing liquid propane to exit the tank through the regulator.
