If your propane tank is mounted in a movable drawer, your supply hose from tank to grill has probably kinked. Jenn-Aire and Ducane is notorius for this but they say it is not a problem. I'm replacing with a longer and more flexible hose.

There is either an obstruction in the gas pipes like a spider web or something or your valve is not opening up all the way. It also could be a bad attachment fitting or not seated properly. I hope this helps.

I have a Weber Spirit E-210 and the temp will not rise above 300. I cleaned the burners and still an issue. Does the Regulator need to be replaced?


The regulator may need to be replaced. But, before you do, follow the directions below.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY
(Slow motion, slow).
3. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first & turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct for being in the highest setting?
If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, did all the burners light and do the flame
heights all look correct for being on the highest setting? If so, you may have solved the problem.
4. Close the grill's Hood/Lid and allow it to heat for at least 20 minutes. At that point is the
thermometer registering higher than 300 degrees or quickly heading in that direction?
If so, you did solve the problem! Remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if that didn't solve the problem, you'll need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00.
Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope the helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know & Happy Grilling!!

Susan - Assuming that you have a Propane grill with a grill tank, that has plenty of gas in the tank. Do the following:
  • Turn the Propane tank valve OFF.
  • Disconnect the hose from the tank.
  • Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank valve.
  • Turn the Tank Valve ON, VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow).
  • Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from tank, first.
  • Turn the burner flame to High. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way.
  • Have all the burner flames returned to normal? If so, you solved the problem.
  • Always remember, when turning the tank valve ON, do it VERY, VERY Slowly.
If the above did not solve your problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find them at any home center or hardware store that sell grills and accessories. Be sure to take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you solve your problem. Please be kind enough, not to forget to rate my response to you. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Q200 weber grill getting gas flow but only at low and cannot regulate flame or raise temp for cooking


This sounds like a case of the OPD tank valve on the propane tank has locked up your regulator. In which case, turn the tank OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose. Now, turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is completely open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. If the flame appears to now be normal, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. If all burners have returned to normal height, you solved the problem. Always remember to turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, you may need to replace the regulator/hose assembly, which you can purchase from any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories. Take your old one with your for comparison purposes.

I just purchased a brand new tank of propane and i still have the same problem that the propane burns out of all 4 burners but at a really low flame even on high. I can not get the grill to heat up...


Turn the tank off. Disconnect the grill hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the LP tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY until it's fully open. Now, light each burner one at a time and turn it up to the highest setting. If that didn't solve the problem, repeat the previously listed steps.

If after the second attempt the burners still only maintain a low flame, you will need to replace the grill hose/regulator.

Hope this solved your problem and Happy Grilling!

New propane tank won't ignite


The regulator on the on the hose is either gone bad, or could have got a little bit of dirt in it. You could tap the side of the regulator gently and sometimes this will solve it.

When I light my grill only one side of the burner has a flame, on all 3 burners. I cleaned everything and even cleaned each hole in the burners. What's next?


This is a common problem with grills purchased after 2001. There is a new safety feature inside the regulator called a 'surge protector'. If you open your propane bottle valve too quickly or if you try attaching a tank with the tank valve in the 'open' position, the propane wants to 'surge' into the grill.

When the propane surges into the regulator (located on the grill hose) the 'surge protector' (inside the regulator) kicks on. When this happens you will not be able to get your grill lit, and if you do, it will be a small blue flame and the grill will not heat up.

So what to do if you trip the surge protector and can't get your grill to light or heat up?

Shut the tank off and shut the valves on the grill off. Disconnect the tank from the grill hose. When you disconnect the tank from the hose you will hear the excess pressure of propane release. This is an indication that you have re-set the regulator's surge protector.

Now that you have deactivated or reset the surge protector, reconnect the tank. Make sure the valve on the tank and the valves on the grill are in the closed and in the off position. After you reconnect the tank to the hose, SLOWLY open the tank valve (making sure the valves on the grill are in the OFF position).

Since you have slowly opened the valve on the tank, the propane did not surge into the regulator and the surge protector did not activate.

Now open 1 valve on the grill and light it. You should get a nice flame. If your grill has more than one valve, open each following valve in sequential order to extend the flames to the other burners.

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.

Low flame


The newer type tank has an anti tip safety device. It gets all boo boo'd when the grill is moved around. Remove the tank. Open the valves on the grill and close them back. Re install the tank and slowly open the valve.

My weber Baby Q grill has a low flame.


Agree with rjmbridge. I called the Weber support people and was told that there is a built in safety feature on the regulator that will cause the flame to burn at a low setting if the gas within the extension tube to the large tank and regulator is not allowed enough time to equalize. They suggested turning on the gas from the tank very slowly, allow about 2 minutes with the temperature control knob turned off, then turn the temp knob on and light. This worked for me.
