Question about Kenmore Grilling
Question, when you pull off the knob do you see a screw on the front of the valve? Since the grill was converted, there are times where manufacturers use gas specific valves and the screw is there as an adjustment. Let me know.

If it was me I would return it. You did the right thing by testing it on another grill. You should not have to accept a new grill that is not working properly.

From a tag that came with the grill -
"To ensure proper gas flow, all of the burner control valves MUST be off before opening the LP cas cylinder valve.
When turning on the LP gas cylinder valve, make sure to open the valve SLOWLY two complete turns to ensure proper gas flow.
All LP tanks now come equipped with a leak detection device internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly it will restrict the gas supply to the appliance. Opening the valve rapidly may simulate a gas leak, causing the safety device to activate, restricting gas flow and causing low flames or poor ignition.
Opening the valve slowly will insure this safety feature is not falsely triggered."
I would guess you triggered the tank failsafe inadvertently.

Most modern gas regulators have a safety feature to prevent gas left on. If you shut off the tank first and then turn off the burners, it will trigger and keep the gas flow at a very reduce flow to prevent you from turning on the tank again with the burners left on and not realizing it. Turn everything off and then turn on tank first, followed by the burners and this will solve most problems of a low flame or a bbq that won't get hot.
