SOURCE: flame not hot

If the propane tank is full, it could be the pressure regulator. Some regulators have an adjustment screw on the top.
If it's REALLY cold outside, the propane may not be evaporating fast enough to keep the pressure up. Also on a cold or windy day, heat is drawn away from the grill very quickly, and it may be difficult to keep the temperature up inside.

Good luck!
(And Happy Grilling!)

had same problem- noticed regulator iced up. received new regulator under warranty from uniflame. still same problem. tapped on regulator and started to work better but should not have to do that. maybe regulators are defective, but not a grill doctor.

SOURCE: flame low on grill however the flame is high on burner

Sounds like your regulator has a restriction. One thing you could try would be to tap on the regulator while you have the grill lit and see if you could knock loose the particulate that is creating problems if not your other option would be to replace the regulator.

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

Probably 1 of 3 things:
Check your LP tank valve at an LP filling station. Make sure both valve and tank are in working order.
Next check for webs or cocoons up around where knob valves go into burners. You may have to remove burners to see into back of valves. Then swab orifice holes with a torch tip cleaner.
Third, a Menards , LP outfitter/station, or grill shop should have a universal replacement rubber gas line and "regulator"(possibly plugged or stuck shut). Sometimes you end up with cheap/bad regulator out of the factory.
Good luck and hope one these helps or does the trick.

Low flame at burner. I've put a new tank on my grill and now the flame stays very low on all burners. I've heard that there can be some pressure problems with a newly filled tank. Is there a quick...

Mike, there can be some pressure problems, but it's not the new tank. However, it does cause the problem and here's how you resolve it.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burn to HIGH.
Does the burner light and the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same
way. Now, do all the burner flames look as the should? If co, you solved the problem. Always
remember to turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly>

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can pick one up at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. It will run you about $30.00 (+/-) .

Hope this helped you to 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!!

Pilot light wont stay lit, even when on high

Pilot lights are supposed to stay on when the flames are burning. If they didn't the flames would go out, because the pilot flame against the Thermocouple keeps the pilot burning. It's a safety feature.

Flames only come out very low on both sides

disconnect tank, hook tank back up, then open valve slowly. When opened to fast it thinks valve is leaking and shuts down.
