The new gas grills have a safety device built into the gas hose that can cause this problem until you get familiar with it. The flame on a gas grill should be blue. If you have a yellow flame it could be caused by a couple of different problems. First of all the burner might be worn out. If you have an older grill then you should inspect the burner to make sure that there are no cracks or holes and that all the burner holes are the same size. If you have a newer grill or burner, or your burner appears to be fine then the problem might be with the regulator. The regulator is a round metal object near the connector to your gas supply. Sometimes regulators get stuck. This can reduce the gas flow, make a yellow flame and keep your grill from getting hot. To solve a stuck regulator, turn off the fuel supply to your grill. Disconnect the main connector and open the grills control value. This will eliminate any pressure on the regulator. Sometimes this will reset the regulator, but sometimes they stay stuck. Take a small hard object like the handle of a screwdriver and give the regulator a gentle tap. Now you can reconnect everything and see how your grill works now. If you still have a yellow flame your propane tank might be low, the regulator may need replacing or you could have a blockage in the venturi tubes. So check your fuel level by pouring hot, not boiling water down the side of the tank. Feel along the side where you poured the water. The propane level is where the tank feels cold. If you have plenty of fuel, locate the venturi tubes. The venturi tubes are located along fuel lines right behind the control valves. These allow air to mix with the fuel before reaching the burners so they have a small open space. If that space is blocked it will restrict the fuel flow to the burner. Make sure it is clear of obstruction. If you have done all this and still have a yellow flame you may need to look at replacing

unhook the tank and hook it up again being sure that the regulator is right side u p.
these new grills have a safety valve that often partially closes and causes problems.

First I have a couple of questions for your question on how ti fix your Brinkmann Gas Grill, Model 810-8501-S
1). Did you push the igniter for 3-5 seconds after you turned on the Sear Burner (remember, this needs to be done AFTER you've turned the control knob to HIGH).
2). Once the burner is lit, you then need to continue to PUSH & HOLD the control knob for another 30 seconds as this somehow seals the deal, thus this should solve the problem.
3). However, if this does NOT work, you may have a defective Sear Burner and the best thing to do is to contact the Customer Service Department over at Brinkmann:

I have a few ideas that might help.
1). Before going to the expanse of new parts, your igniter AA battery MAY need replacing.
2). Your igniter wires might be loose. Remove the battery and check junction box found behind the Control Panel and connect any loose wires.
3). Check that the end of each of your main burner tubes are properly located over the gas valve fitting.
4). There MAY be an obstruction over the main tubes not allowing the gas lines to access it properly.
5). If obstructions in the hose or regulatory assembly is suspected, it would be best to contact Brinkmann directly at 800-527-0717
