I've got the same problem and it causes the safety switch on the heating element not to compress thus it want heat. I contacted Masterbuilt and they said due to that model being no longer in production ther were no parts to buy. I'm going to find a way to hold the switch down (maybe with a piece of duct tape) and continue using it as is I guess, I suggest you do the same unless you want to buy the newer model.

Hi Larry, W/D here. Just got your question so I'm a bit late in getting back to you......
The amount of heat delivered at the burner is dependent on a number of things, and we'll take them in the order of most likely:
1st, The gas tip must be clear. It's possible for critters to build nests in the gas delivery piping that can plug either the gas delivery port or the air side of the mixing venturi; both will give you a reduction in BTU's. Compressed air can be used to blow out the air side of the venturi. The orifice for tha gas can be cleaned with a thin wire, or use a tip cleaner, available at a welding supply store. These are inexpensive.
2nd, The burner proper can become plugged at the ports where the mixed gas/air combusts. These can be cleaned with a small drill bit,sized to the holes, and just passed back and forth to clean them out. Compressed air works well to remove any particles remaining.
3rd, The regulator may be defective. If this is the case, you'll need to replace it as it contains no user serviceable parts.
4th, the in-line regulating valve may be sticking in the partially open position. This is difficult to diagnose, however, and is more of an assumption, after all other causes are eliminated. The cure for this is replacement also.
Hope that this was helpful to you.
Best regards, --W/D--
