Dezeray posted the owner's manual for that grill in the above response. That owner's manual provides some good troubleshooting for this type of problem. Check the tank to make sure that it is full. I recommend that you reset the regulator and purge air from the system as described on page 20 of that manual. If that does not help, then you could have a bad regulator, a bad tank or a number of other problems. You may want to try a different tank. If that does not help, then you may be able to fix this problem by replacing that regulator.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

It's the regulator. Replace it and be careful, low will be like the day you bought it. It will cook a lot hotter than you are used to. I had same issue and finally fixed the issue when i swapped out the regulator and supply line. $20.00 at Home Depot. 3 foot line with regulator built in. Just un screw the old one and screw the new one on. 3 min fix

Hello Julie,

 

I'm sorry to hear that you are having difficulties with your replacement gas regulator and I would like to assist you.  I would like to know what the issue is with the replacement regulator actually is, does it not have gas output when installed?  There should be no modifications that need to be made, the two different part numbers are nearly identical.

 

Please reply with the information requested and I'll be happy to assist you further.

There is gas coming through and the first burner lights OK but the flame dies as soon as you light another burner.

Hello Julie,

Thank you for the reply and the additional details. This does not appear to be a regulator issue and I would like to give you some ideas. The regulator regulates pressure and can provide a lot of volume with its regulated pressure. If the gas cylinder is low, improperly filled or has an internal issue with its OPD safety valve, issues like this can occur. A blockage in the main gas manifold that provides gas to the valves can also cause an issue like this, but it is unlikely. I think that we need to look at what was done to get the original regulator working and you mentioned patching it, what was done? Opening of the gas valve can have an effect on the system, including its internal safety device. When you open the gas valve, you want to open it slowly, as to not jar the internal workings with high pressure gas at a really fast rate. I suggest following the instructions in the attached video, all except the replacement of the regulator as you have already done this. If after performing the regulator reset there is still an issue, I would look closely at the potential of the tank itself. I have personally gotten fresh tanks that were not completely filled or had an issue with their internal parts not allowing enough flow.

Please let me know what you find and reply with additional details about the tank.

My husband just put duct tape on the hose to patch the original leak. We used it for several months with no issues, using the current tank. The old regulator developed a new leak (we could smell propane) so we stopped using it. I'm pretty sure the issue is the new regulator since everything works perfectly with the old one. We just don't want to get blown up!

Hello Julie,

Thank you for the reply with the additional information. If you are absolutely certain that the tank is working correctly, then I advise replacing the regulator. There should not be any modifications made to it due to safety reasons.

Although some LP grills pull so much gas that the liquid in the LP cylinder cannot keep up so these appliances require special regulators 99.9% of the LP BBQ's will all be able to use the same LP regulator which regulates 11" water column displacement. Get rid of or fix anything leaking. Turn off the grill and tank and disconnect the regulator. Turn the grill on, every knob to "high" for 5 minutes. Turn everything off and reattach the regulator to the LP tank. Turn the LP tank "on" very slowly for the first full rotation. This will reset the safety feature in the tank. When the tank is full the opd pushes the gas through the valve a little hard and accidentally activates the safety check. Your description above is exactly the same problem we've heard hundreds of times. It's common for less educated techs to replace a regulator but it is rare for a regulator to go bad; they are essentially a small chamber that only allows so much pressure through and do not have much to go bad. Bleeding the pressure in the manifold and releasing pressure on the check valve happens by default when the hose and regulator is replaced so replacing seems to fix the problem even though reseting the check valve is free and a lot simpler. A leak is certainly very (very!) dangerous so get rid of that immediately and if the leak is at the hose fitting make sure it is connected correctly as pipe dope or teflon tape can cause leaks with the flared fittings on most gas hoses. You can always contact us for experienced assistance. Gas tanks have safety features today they did not have when we were kids and its sometimes awkward explaining that turning the tank on and off a certain way can stop the BBQ from functioning. The check valve gauges pressure leaving the tank and stabilizing in the manifold so if gas hits it too hard coming out and stabilizes at 11" properly the gauge reads a high pressure going in, lower pressure stabilized, must be a leak and cuts flow. No Duct Tape Anywhere :)
