TROUBLE SHOOTING TIPS
Sometimes the burner does not light or has a only a meager match flame. Other times, the flame blows
ns yellow, or there is a flame inside the burner tube. These symptoms are common and easy to
remedy. The following Trouble Shooting Tips cover most questions and problems associated with outdoor
gas cooker appliances. Save this manual for future reference.
Burner lights but the flame remains very small and will not increase for heat-up and cooking.
Both LP cylinder and regulator couplings contain an EXCESS FLOW safety device that shuts off 90 percent
of gas flow should the hose be cut or severed. Sometimes this safety device can be activated when lighting
the burner. Opening the cylinder valve and/or regulator valve too quickly can create the rapid flow of
gas that activates the excess flow safety device.

on page 16. Follow lighting instructions and
be certain to S-L-O-W-L-Y open cylinder valve
