Re: Gas not coming out enough; flame not catching on to...
Problem: Low flames on grill, tank is full.
Cause: These newer
tanks have a device inside that limits the flow of gas to prevent
leaking or accidental discharge of gas from the cylinder. The leak
detector mechanism inside the tank shuts off the gas whenever the valve
is opened rapidly.
the tank valve and remove the tank. Check the gas line for ANY object
that could cause blockage. Open all valves on the grill to eliminate
any pressure whatsoever. Close all valves and reattach tank. SLOWLY
open the tank not over 2 turns. Check for leaks. I just open my tank a
tiny bit but that is just me.

You problem could be or probably is with the regulator...not enough gas
follow the below procedures on how to clean the burners for your grill:
Shut off the gas. It is very important that you turn off the gas valve
to your BBQ before you can begin to clean it. This is found on the hose
that attaches to your propane tank, simply turn the valve all the way
to the right.
Escape any remaining gas. Next turn all the burner knobs to the highest
setting and allow the remaining gas, if any, to escape. Make sure you
have the grill hood in the open position before doing this.
Let the Grill vent for five minute: In order to ensure that the
remaining propane has ventilated properly, leave your grill open and do
not begin to clean it for at least five minutes.
Brush grill bars. Using your grill cleaning brush, firmly brush the
surface of the grill bars in a forwards-backwards motion with the steel
from the brush sweeping across the surface. Once you have brushed the
surface flip each grill bar over and brush the other side.
Saturate with grill cleaner spray and repeat. Using your grill cleaner
spray thoroughly saturate the surface of the grill bars and brush both
sides. Set the grill bars aside after you finish so you can access the
interior of the BBQ to clean it.
Remove burner plates and clean. All gas grills have metal plates which
cover and protect the flame pilots during cooking. These will typically
become covered with ash, and burnt grease and sauce over time. Simply
remove them from the grill and brush them down. After you have brushed
them once, saturate them with the cleaner spray and brush them down
again. Set the plates aside so you can finish cleaning the rest of your
Clean interior of grill. The plates will only catch so much, still
sauce and grease will fall to the bottom of the grill and turn to ash.
Using your grill brush, jar all of this ash free. Douse it in cleaner
spray so it condenses and scoop it up with the paper towels.
Clean grease catch. Many newer gas grills will come with a grease
catching plate. You can usually access these through the rear of the
BBQ. They generally have a small metal handle and will easily slide
out. Remove this grease catch, and brush and clean it thoroughly.
Clean exterior of grill. Using your grill cleaner spray, saturate the
exterior of the grill and wipe it down with the paper towels. Repeat
this process until the exterior is entirely clean.
Reassemble the grill. Now you can put all the pieces back together in your grill and turn the gas valve on again.
I hope the above helps to solve your problem.
Regulator is not bad, as I stated before new valves are designed to reduce gas flow if valve is opened to fast. This is so if grill catches on fire, the tank will shut itself off, thus propane will stop flowing causing fire to extinguish itself.
Okay, what you are dealing with is called "vapor-lock". The way these grills need to be turned off is, close the tank valve first and after the burners go out, then turn the burners off. The way you are doing it is trapping the gas and you are getting a weak flame. Fortunately this is an easy fix. First, light the grill by turning the gas valve open, then turn the burners on to light the grill...as soon as that is done, close the gas valve on the tank then turn the burners off. Repeat this procedure until you get a good flame. If this procedure hasn't fixed the problem after the third time, you need a new regulator and regulators are easy to find in any home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot.
The anwer is not the one you want before Labor day cook-outs. Since the unit is under recall, go the manufacture's site, or any site specified in the recall notices, and follow the directions, to get replacement parts for all damaged parts from the fire, as well as the original defective parts. Hopefully you can take the unit in for exchange for a fully assembled one. Be polite but firm in wanting the units assembled gratis.
Yellow is a "reducing" flame meaning low oxygen, whereas blue is an oxidizing flame. There is not enough air mixing with the gas. Clean out the pipes and free the air intake holes on the first stage of the burner assembly.
Shut off the tank and remove it from the grill. open all valves. close all valves. Reconnect tank to cooker and SLOWLY open the valve a hair. Then retry.Something in the dang newer safety tanks cause this phenom.
