Help! New Grill not flaming properly!

Having a problem with a low flame. It worked fine for about 5 or 6 grillings, then I cleaned it and now it flames up but nowhere near what it should be when on high. Had the plumber that hooked up my natural gas converter come back and take a look- couldn't find anything wrong with hook up or gas pressure. He suggested cleaning out the carryovers, etc. (which I did even though I've only used it a few times) but it still is not reaching proper high flaming levels. Any suggestions?!! I have a barbecue in 5 days and I'm in a panic! Thanks!

    We have the same problem -low flame. Only used it a few times in the fall of 2008 and again this spring 2009. We had low flame after 2-3 uses. We replaced the gas tank and we still have the problem. Bought it at Lowe's - pre-assembled. Everything we buy lately has to be returned...Poor quality....very frustrating!

My 1100lp when burners are on low flame is to low and make squeeking noise and if a slight bit of wind will blow out flame. I cleaned burner tubes and replaced regulator with factory parts will heat up on...

turn off the LP Tank, disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose and turn the tanl valve on very, very slowly, until it's fully open. Light each burner and turn it to high. Wait for the burners to heat up and turn them down gradually to low. If flame height on low has returned to normal, the problem is solved.

If that didn't solve the problem, the air shutters on each burner may need adjusting. Consult the installation instructions that came with the new burners for the proper setting or consult your Owners Manual.

If it's real real cold outside, it's not unusual for the burners set on low to have a problem. The only solution to that is let the grill preheat well, before turning the burners down. Also, grill with the hood closed on low, if it's a windy day.

Hope this helps you and gets you back to grilling again.

Grill lights but flame is low and goes out if control is moved from high. Burner tube is clean, spider screen is clean, and I have a full tank of LP. Grill is Q series about 1 year old and has been working...

Hello. Are you frustrated because your gas grill doesn't get hot enough lately. The problem you are having indicates that you have to go through a procedure called "RESETTING THE REGULATOR". Follow these easy steps:

1. Turn the burners on for one full minute and then off.

2. Next, remove the regulator and the hose from the tank.

3. Then reconnect the tank to the regulator and hose.

4. And very slowly open the tank.

5. Last step is to fire up the burners and start cooking with you new hot flame.

The problem began the first time you opened the valve on the tank too quickly. In the future, always turn the tank valve on s-l-o-w-l-y to prevent this problem.. Joe

Just bough weber Q200 grill. Is it normal that the flame burns so low and blue?Used to large flames off conventional grills. Thanks.e.

I have used the Q-series for 2 years. The blue and low flame is absolutely normal. Weber's philiosophy is of avoiding flare ups when grilling for best taste. I love this grill - very easy to clean, uses less gas and makes great food.

Low flame on burner...

Remove the burner and check the flexible tubes for kinks or blockages. The flexible tubes usually just slip over the backs of the valves. Spiders love to get in there and block them. Also check that the holes in the burners are not clogged. Be careful when reseating the flexible tubes to be sure that they are properly seated on the back of the valves. Failure to properly seat the flexible tubes can cause leakage there, and the gas can ignite at the back of the valves and not reach the burner. Be certain that the replacement burner is designed to use with your grill and the flexible tubes mate properly with the back of the valves.

Cannot get good flame on the burner of my baby weber grill. I've tried cleaning it checked hose, tank, regulator, seems to have good flow, but low flame only, even when set in high????????

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.

Low gas flame

Also read the manual, You must open the LP tank valve very slow, the new tanks have funny safety design, I had low flame on the 2nd use w/full tank and was puzzled because it was high flame on the night before.
