Problem solved. The store FINALLY sent someone out who knows what they're doing. After about a hour of adjusting and tweaking he got it working fine. Apparently, the adjustments have to be made with the grill partially disassembled so flames can be viewed from top and bottom. Also, it needs to be load balanced with adjusting with all burners on, then with fewer and fewer burners on. Dan B.

SOURCE: Doesn't burn hot
Ok your pretty sure the grill is cooler than it should be and I'm not a cook. About the only thing I can think of is the LP regulator assuming its on LP gas. Or I remember a few years ago someone had some LP tanks out that had water in them and they were recalled.
Assuming the Gas IS LP, and the quality of the GAS is 99.99% like it should be it just leaves the regulator, or the machine (if new) was made for a differant type of fuel.
If the machine is older than a year or so there could be spider webs blocking the air inlet to the mixing chamber and causeing incomplete mixing with air/oxygen thus not buring hot (or clean in some cases). Follow the tubing from the tank and on to the knob. somewhere around the knob/valve area you will see the mixing area where air is drawn in. Incomplete combustion is the result of not enough air or wrong type fuel or wrong pressure more noticable and associated with high pressure. Low pressure is what you seem to be discribing and I would check my regulator. This can be checked by an expieranced person as you or me who have seen a good LP flame before. Blue with lighter blue tips and feathers and finally a faint plasma area. NO yellow or orange in any apprecaiable quanity and deffinately NO Smoke or soot. Any of these signs appear take this thing back where you got it and get another or to a repetuable LP retail sales jobber (NOT Wal Mart or Lowes). Some grills have been made for Natural Gas and if on LP I think it would be yellow and sooty.
Finally if the burner can be taken out it may not be alined with the feeder tube or other internal parts. If it has blown over during a storm, knocked over by a dog or kids or something look for this type of problem.
(If you decide to change the regulator yourself DO NOT USE ANY PIPE DOPE OTHER THAN THAT IS APPROVED FOR USE WITH LP GAS. DO NOT USE TEFLON TAPE WITH LP GAS OR ANY DOPE WITH TEFLON IN IT, Teflon is a byproduct of Petrolium and LP is a great solvent so it wont last).
Hope tiese little things help you decide what to do or what is wrong. Please let me know If I need to expand. Rate me as high as you can and thasnks for using fixya.

There are adjustment screw at the end of the burner tubes that allow more or less air to enter the burners. try opening or closing these screws
