Question about Brinkmann Grilling
My 4 Burner Brinkman Grill does not put off enough heat to cook on. Tried to "reset the regulator" by turning off and disconnecting tank, letting it set for a couple minutes. Reconnecting everything and turning on the tank, letting it set for a couple of minutes before restarting it. When I do this, the grill will initially allow a large amount of flow, and light with big flames, but will then go back to a low burn only. And again not putting off enough heat to cook on. No leaks or anything else going on, changing propane tanks does not change this problem. Help!
You have a faulty gas regulator...
Gas Regulators are notorious for doing just what yours is doing.
After sitting in the same position for a length of time they freeze in that position, then along comes a grain of sand, or other debris and blocks the gas flow.
Remove the regulator if possible, if not try it in place with the tank removed.
Get a plastic headed hammer and gently but firmly tap on the regulator, your trying to free up the diaghram inside.
After tapping and freeing the regulator diaphram reinstall and you will be good to go.
If this does not work, the replace the regulator as it is defective.
Some regulators are ajustable, if you have one of those then try to adjust the regulator, you will see a cap on top of the regulator, that is where the adjustment screw is located.

SOURCE: low flame
This problem most likely is with your regulator. if you decide to replace it please make sure you get the right size replacement. Some salespeople dont know the difference there are four common sizes from class 1 to class 4. If you take the old one with you make sure you match the numbers up with a new one.
Hope this helps You

I had this problem when I turned on the burners before I turned on the tank, to fix it I had to turn everything off. Then turn the tank on and wait about a minute for pressure to build in the lines then turn on the burners. Hope this helps

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.

I had this problem with a brand new grill so it wasn't grease in the hose. Due to the new propane regulators you have to turn the propane tank on for at least a minute before turning the grill to light. Let the tank sit in the light position for five seconds and then you light the grill. This will keep air from getting into the intake hose and will keep your gas flame roaring high.
I was only able to get the grill up to 250 degrees before I found this fix posted on the Weber site. It is listed as the number one solution in the FAQ section.
