Topic: OT - Gas Grills (5 msgs / 106 lines)

Folks,
	I'm throwing this out since many of you have a great deal of experience
with gas grills.
	Our large, principle grill quit working recently, and I have yet to
locate the manual.  Here's how it went down.
	I had a standby tank because the primary one was very low.  While
cooking one night, I ran out and quickly changed the tanks.
Immediately, no gas was flowing into the burners - verified via sound,
fire and smell.  I took the tank to my standby/future roaster, and it
worked fine.
	So, suggestions for troubleshooting?  I'm leaning towards the regulator
having gone.  Would I be best served calling Sears for a replacement, or
go to one of the local gas suppliers?  Something else altogether?
Thanks,
Jason

I would suggest trying this first before spending money.  Remove the new full gas cylinder and allow 
the grill to set disconnected for several hours.  Then re connect the cylinder and SLOWLY crack the 
valve off of its seat (open slowly) and see if you now have gas.  There is usually a high flow check 
device built into the regulator that will lock up and stop flow of gas in the event of a regulator or line 
failure.  They sometimes can be a pain to reset.  I do not have any idea what make and model grill you 
have so I do not know that this is your problem, but it could be.

I'm sure this isn't the problem, but I had an issue with my grill leaking at the tank awhile back.  Took it to a local gas supplier, no leak of course.  Turned out to be a recall once I stumbled upon the manufacturer's website.  Would have never thought of it, and almost paid 30 for a new regulator myself.

    I had the exact problem you describe when changing to a new tank and
solved it just as Rich has suggested.  Make sure the gas control valve on
the GRILL is in the off position when you crack the valve on the TANK. Hope
the problem is this simple to solve.               Josh
