Coleman roadtrip grill

Unlike me, my Coleman Roadtrip grill will not pass gas!

It was working fine then the next time we wanted to use it, it would not pass gas. It acts like the excess flow valve EVF is shutting the flow of gas off when the burner knob is turned on. One hears a "psst" then nothing. Wait a few minutes, try again, "psst" then nothing. Before you ask, the propane bottle is new and full. I even have the adapter hose and tried it on a 20# bottle.

Anybody else had this problem and what did you do to fix it?

I assume you checked the gas lines for blockage/restrictions.

You say you "even have an adapter and tried on a 20# bottle". Have you tried with a 16.4oz coleman bottle? If not give that a try. Sometimes the regulators on these things get a little finicky with the hoses.

If the 16.4 bottle works, regulated is confirmed good. Next step would be make sure burnrs are off, connect adapter hose-no bottle attached- then attach 20# bottle and open valve very slow, take a full minute. Sounds crazy, but I have had to do this firmly weber q200 because something was triggering the weber regulator to intermittently to shut down because it sensed a leak. The try lighting.

If the 16.4 bottle doesn't work, you need a regulator.

By the way, for me the weber self corrected after 2-3 uses when very slowly opening the tank.

When I pack up mine I wrap the regulator unit in a small walmart sack and stick it under the top. Helps to keep it clean and I check the orface before I hook back up. Had a problem early on but found the same fix you did and no problems since.
