- Open the gas grill lid and turn all burner discs to the OFF position.
- Disconnect the regulator from the propane tank isolation valve by turning the knurled mounting switch counterclockwise.
- Fully open the burner control buttons on the grill.
- Turn off all burners and close the cylinder valve.
- Wait 60 seconds.
- Fully open the cylinder valve and wait a few seconds for the pressure in the regulator and gas line to equalize.
- Open the grill lid, then open one of the burner controls and turn on the grill.
Reset the regulator by turning off the gas grill burners. Close the propane tank and disconnect the hose from the tank. With the gas grill lid open, turn the burner knobs to maximum for about two minutes and then turn them off again. Reconnect the hose to the propane tank and slowly ignite the gas.
In general, regulator failure results in too high or too low outlet pressure. If the regulator fails and lets too much gas flow (a faulty regulator opens), the downstream pressure will increase. The safety valve remains closed until the pressure reaches its set point.
Mix 1/4 cup of soap and water in a bowl. The solution should contain an equal part of both. Reconnect the hose and brush all connections with this solution. This includes the connection between regulator and tank, regulator and hose and hose and grille.
Each propane grill uses an LP controller, but not all controllers are the same. Although the goal is the same, different types of layouts require different types of controls. The type of regulator a grill needs will depend on the specific needs of the propane application.
To work around this problem, relieve pressure on the pressure regulator to restore normal fuel flow by following these steps:
One of the problems that can cause a regulator to freeze is the entry and passage of liquid propane through the regulator. Liquid propane can freeze a lot if suddenly introduced into a regulator.
The controller is responsible for controlling the high pressure gas exiting the propane tank and reducing it to a safe level. This is done by the force of the spring against the diaphragm to exert a back pressure. This back pressure slows the flow of high pressure gas into the tank.
Gas regulators need to be replaced every 10 years, visible signs of age are generally recognizable. But it is still the production date stamped on the regulator.
If a gas leak is detected, extinguish all flames, incense sticks, etc. Close the LPG regulator and put the safety lid on the bottle. Do not light matches (or lighters). Do not turn on or off any switches or electrical devices.
- If a small amount of gas flows through the regulator: Turn the adjusting screw on the gas pressure regulator clockwise to increase the outlet pressure.
- Turn the adjustment screw counterclockwise to decrease the outlet pressure.
