Next time you use the grill turn the gas on slowly. For some unknown reason when turned on quickly the regulator reduces the gas flow.
Another problem with some gas fittings is an auto shutoff if detects the slightest leak. Sometimes the shutoff is not 100% and allows a small amount of gas causing the weak flame.

Low flame - even at full power. Help! Propane tank is full.


there is a high flow check valve in the regulator designed to prevent large amounts of propane from escaping. sometimes this gets activated by turning it on with the burner valves open. 1. turn tank valve off 2. open burners .3. close burners after 10 secs. 4open tank valve slowly.

Burner flames don't get hot, like not enough gas.


Try this, Turn off the tank. Disconnect it. Reconnect it. Turn tank valve back on very slowly and then see if you get bigger flame size.

I have a gas grill that has set for about two years and now it has a low flame when gas is set to high. Is it the burner or the regulator


I shut off the gas at the tank and grill. Removed the regulator from the tank and turned on the knobs on the grill for one minute. Then turned off the grill reconnected the gas line to the tank and opened the tank knob slowly.

SEVERAL DAYS AGO,THE GRILL GREASE CAUGHT FIRE,TEMP WAS 600,TURNED OFF IMM.SINCE THEN GRILL LIGHTS,FLAME IS VERY LOW OTHER BURNERS LIGHT BUT FLAMEIS LOW. HAVE CHECKED GAS SUPPLY.EVEN PUT ON A NEW TANK.SAME...


The regulator is damaged. This is the little round between the hose connected to your knob adjustment and the Gas tank. This one is not expensive. it costs less than 30 bucks. Good Luck.

Low gas flow - low heat


Hi Lyon,
Yeah, it's the regulator. Fortunately, they're cheap and easy to replace!

You can look on line for part number 80012. Or you can remove yours and take it to Home Depot or Lowe's in the outdoor cooking area and match up a replacement. <--- they're all the same... just make sure the compression fitting (the brass end) is the same size.

The only other thing I could recommend is this... Turn the LP bottle completely off. Then completely remove the big plastic knurled knob from the tank. Now replace the knob back onto the tank (all the way and make sure it's tight). Then S L O W L Y turn the gas back on. Now try your pit. If you get the same flame, it's the regulator. If you get full flame, you just reset the safety device inside the tank.

I'm betting regulator. Good luck and happy cookin'!

Low flame when all four burners are on


This sounds like one of two things - either the gas regulator (the big bulky thing between the tank and the BBQ that is usually round) is faulty, in which case it needs to be replaced, OR (and a much cheaper fix) the air intakes on the grill itself are clogged.  Get underneath the grill, and look where the gas lines connect.  There should be some sort of mesh material where the lines connect to the different burners - make sure those are really clean, as the burners depend on a precise mix of gas and air.
Good luck!

As you light additional burners, flame dies down to almost nothing


did this problem just start? if so check your regulator or the main line for a crimp or obstruction.

No gas getting to bbq


I switched to the new style 20# tank with the new turn-on knob.  I couldn't get enough gas pressure to the BBQ burners for all three burners to light or to keep a strong flame on even one burner.  The new style tanks have a safety valve on the inside of the tank that shuts the gas off if you turn the knob on too fast because the safety valve thinks there is leak.  Shut everything off and then try turning the knob on real slow, especially at first, before turning it all the way on.  If that doesn't work (it didn't for me), then replace the large plastic connection valve knob (female end) that attaches the regulator to the tank.  Mine was for the old style tank and was black (low pressure).  I went to a propane company and had them replace it with a green knob (higher pressure).  Took it home and WALA!  Everything works fine now.  But it was very frustrating trying to figure why I couldn't get any gas to the burners after buying a brand new tank.  I hope this helps solve your problems.

My weber Baby Q grill has a low flame.


Agree with rjmbridge. I called the Weber support people and was told that there is a built in safety feature on the regulator that will cause the flame to burn at a low setting if the gas within the extension tube to the large tank and regulator is not allowed enough time to equalize. They suggested turning on the gas from the tank very slowly, allow about 2 minutes with the temperature control knob turned off, then turn the temp knob on and light. This worked for me.
