Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
We inherited a bar height outdoor table with a propane fire pit in the middle of the top. it lights, but the flame is really low, and we cannot put lava rocks and/or logs on it or the flames will be non-existent! suggestions? We made sure the holes are clear and blew air through just to make sure there was nothing blocking anywhere. Other propane fire pits i've seen have great flames that look quite similar to a real fire...ours....not so much :o) Please help! we'd love to be sitting out of our back deck enjoying the fire with the cooler weather!

Make sure the grate is in the holder like the others, and nothing is blocking the bottom of it. They often slip back where the fire misses the inside where it should hit.

SOURCE: One burner has low flame
Try looking for webs back to where the burner tube meets the valve. Otherwise you need to remove burner tube to access back of valve to clean with a torch tip cleaner or compressed air, (remember to disconnect grill from gas source first) inside valve orifice. Usually the back of valve can be removed with a wrench. Worst case you always get a new valve off internet if you can't resolve the plug. Hope this helps, good luck.

Buy a new one. do not attempt to use this one again. There could be a pin hole in the propane lines or just a small crack. If you can hear it then there's a problem.
However if you really want to fix this one try putting water on the propane lines and then putting on a new tank and opening the valve. DO NOT LIGHT THE STOVE. where there are bubbles there is your leak. When you find it seal it with a Flame retardent sealent or clamp the line. Also I believe Lowe's sells parts that may work. just find out which line is leaking and replace the whole line.
I highly recommend just buying a new one and destroying the old one. DO NOT just throw it away please. Some one out there will grab it and try and use it. They will find out the hard way and maybe get hurt badly themselves or hurt someone else. Just imagine the guy who grabs it and goes camping with his family. Him and his son start it up. the son is right next to the unit. The guy fires it up and boom the son gets burned. Is it just me or would you feel bad if you knew this guy. I have seen it first hand. trust me it sucks. A buddy of mine did this and his son was in hospital for 3 days. he said he will never do that again.
So for safety sake please just buy the new one. don't take unnessecary risks if you don't have too.
