Question about Ducane 30400042 (LP)
It sounds like something got disconnected between your gas line and your venturi (which deliver gas to your burners. Take out the grills and whatever holds your rocks or ceramic briquettes and look at the connection where the flame is coming from. It may be obvious what has come apart, and the fix may be as simple as pushing it back together.

POP OFF A KNOB AND LOOK TO SEE IF THERE IS A TINY SCREW IN THE CENTER OF THE KNOB SHAFT . THAT WOULD BE YOUR ADJUSTMENT FOR GAS FLOW. IF IT'S NOT THERE, THE PROBLEM IS IN YOUR REGULATOR, AND IT'S ADJUSTABLE AS WELL.

Good answer... but remember (if you have the regular burners on... The Rotisserie will not light.) 1. Cut all knobs off... Then push and hold in Rotisserie button as you turn to high.
2. Press ignition button, until you hear rotisserie ignite. 3. Keep holding in the rotisserie button until the thermostat realizes the gas is on and burning. (IT must get hot enough to keep gas flowing.) Hope that helps, Dave

SOURCE: low flame
1 your valve is not opening on your tank,
2 your regulator is bad on your tank, or
3 your out of gas.
Unless your second burner is going fine then you have :
4 a bad burner valve control not opening or
5 Some cobwebs inside the burner blocking the gas flow.
If this helps you please rate me with as high a mark as you can. Thanks for using Fix ya and Good Luck

The most common cause of reduced flames is a pressure problem. Could be the gas regulator for the grill. When the burners are on try giving the gas regulator a tap with something hard and see if they change size. If they do then the rqulator could be sticking. And there is a very small hole on the regulator called a vent. If this hole gets plugged with dirt or grease you can get a low pressure problem. Look very carefully on the regulator housing for this small hole and verify that it is clear. Try using a small metal wire(like a tie strap for sandwich bags) to make sure it is clear. Also verify that the tank(if propane) is not overfilled. An overfilled propane tank will cause a pressure problem. You can turn the relief screw on the propane tank until no more liquid comes out to see if this fixes your problem.
