Do you have enough gas pressure coming out of the regulator and gas valve? You'll need a pressure guage for this.
If yes, try taking out the burners and cleaning them with a wire brush, especially the flame spreading sections.

SOURCE: no gas getting to bbq
I switched to the new style 20# tank with the new turn-on knob. I couldn't get enough gas pressure to the BBQ burners for all three burners to light or to keep a strong flame on even one burner. The new style tanks have a safety valve on the inside of the tank that shuts the gas off if you turn the knob on too fast because the safety valve thinks there is leak. Shut everything off and then try turning the knob on real slow, especially at first, before turning it all the way on. If that doesn't work (it didn't for me), then replace the large plastic connection valve knob (female end) that attaches the regulator to the tank. Mine was for the old style tank and was black (low pressure). I went to a propane company and had them replace it with a green knob (higher pressure). Took it home and WALA! Everything works fine now. But it was very frustrating trying to figure why I couldn't get any gas to the burners after buying a brand new tank. I hope this helps solve your problems.

Follow manufacturer's recommendation in resetting the excess flow safety device....(Turn burners and LP cylinder off...Disconnect regulator on cylinder. Turn both knobs to high for at least one minute...Then turn them to off...reconnect the regulator to the LP tank...Turn LP valve VERY slowly (30 seconds) until fully opened..then start the grill in the usual manner. ALWAYS TURN THE LP TANK OFF WHEN DONE USING THE GRILL....
