Question DetailsAsked on 10/31/2014

Who near south Austin repairs gas grills? Mine won't light.

I have an Amana AM26LP. Plenty of gas in new tank. Was working OK until ran out of gas. Have tried very slowly turning on gas valve and various other regulator reset procedures. Tried replacing the cylinder. No effect. No gas at all is delivered to the burners. I'm assuming the regulator has failed but have no way to test it. I'm looking for someone who can.

Assuming you have removed and reinstalled the regulator and the hose (both ends) in case of poor seating in the connection, I would try the tank with hose and regulator on a friend or neighbor's grill, or test the tank and regulator with a torch or weed burner if you have one or have a friend who has one, to try to isolate which items is the source of the problem. Also try a friend's tank on your grill to be sure it is not the grill, and maybe their tank and hose (if same fittings) to eliminate or identify your hose as the problem.

Otherwise, try going to a place that both sells and services gas grills - they may try it out on a demo grill, and should be able to sell you a replacement regulator if needed.
