Only left side of burners working

If you have the Cal Flame burners that are straight, cast brass burners, there is a slot under neath the burners on the back end of the burners. This slot allows the flame to move from the left side of the burners to the right side of the burners. This slot in the burner will corrode shut and not allow the flame to move from the left to the right side. Sometimes you can scrape out the corrosion, and sometimes you can not. If you can't get the slot open, then you have to replace the burners. Cal Flame burners also have a reputation for warping.

You may have to recheck the tank for full. If you forgot to turn off the tank after the last time you used the grill, the tank could have leaked down. I always keep a spare full tank for just those types of problems. If the tank is full, then the regulator may have a problem. That grill should be able to get over 300 degrees.

The best way to cook on a BQ and have min smoke is to put tin foil on the grill with only a couple holes punched it for fat to drain, and don't let flames flair up, use water botttle near by to squirt coals if flames appear and spray some to put out flame. What causes smoke is the fat and juices from the meats hitting flames, this method cuts 90 percent of that.

Turn the tank valve off and disconnect the grill hose from the tank. Wait five minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY. Once the valve is completely open, light the burner farthest from the tank and turn the flame to high. Move to the next burner and repeat, until all the burners are lit. Are all the flame heights back to normal? If so, problem solved. If not, repeat the procedure again. If that doesn't solve the problem after the second attempt, it's time to replace the grill hose/regulator. You can purchase one at any home improvement center or hardware store that sells grills. Be sure to take your old one with you, to get the proper length and size.

Hope this helped solve your problem.

Flame is low

try opening the tanks slower so the overfill protection device in the tank won't kick in and restrict the gas flow.

Flames only come out very low on both sides

disconnect tank, hook tank back up, then open valve slowly. When opened to fast it thinks valve is leaking and shuts down.

Lack of heat

The plates protect the burners and help disperse the flame more evenly across the grill surface. Make sure the tank is completely open (knob on top of tank) and that when the burner is turned up to high, the flames out of the burners are about 1 1/2 to 2" long, mostly blue in color. If they are smaller, and the tank is open all the way, the regulator hose may be defective.
