One of the common gas grill problems is that our flame seems not to get high anymore.
This causes the grill not to heat up and not perform anymore.
I have read many stories about people changing out gas tanks or burners several times and not find the problem.
Even read about people dumping their grill because they thought it was broken and could not be fixed.
Here is what the story is behind this propane grill regulator problem.
Since a couple of years there is a safety feature on grills that causes problems with the gas flow of the propane gas grills.
This can be caused by several things like
- Damaged part of the grill
- Clogged gas lines
- Leaking gas line or connection
But most of the time it is caused by this new safety feature,that works like this:
In case of a gas leak the gas flow is higher than normal. This feature in our regulator register a abnormal high gas glow and restricts the flow by shutting a kind of valve.
Now what can we do about this propane grill regulator problem.
Step 1: Keep the lid open to ventilate
Step 2: Turn all knobs off
Step 3: Turn off the knob of the tank
Step 4: Disconnect the hose from the tank.
Step 5: Wait a while and reconnect the hose to the tank
Step 6: Turn the knob of the tank open. But the trick DO IT SLOW
Step 7: Light your grill like you always do.
This should solve the problem and you can start using your grill as normal.
For some reason this is more a Weber grill problem than any other brand.
