turn off the LP Tank, disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose and turn the tanl valve on very, very slowly, until it's fully open. Light each burner and turn it to high. Wait for the burners to heat up and turn them down gradually to low. If flame height on low has returned to normal, the problem is solved.
If that didn't solve the problem, the air shutters on each burner may need adjusting. Consult the installation instructions that came with the new burners for the proper setting or consult your Owners Manual.
If it's real real cold outside, it's not unusual for the burners set on low to have a problem. The only solution to that is let the grill preheat well, before turning the burners down. Also, grill with the hood closed on low, if it's a windy day.
Hope this helps you and gets you back to grilling again.
Try clearing the venturri tube. Sometimes spiders will build webs inside the venturri tube, restricting the flow of propane to the burner. If the venturri tube is clear, try cleaning the individual ports on the burner itself. Grease, food debris, and rust can clog the burner ports restricting the flame from coming up. If neither of these work, you most likely have a faulty regulator and need to purchase a replacement regulator.
Remove the burner and check the flexible tubes for kinks or blockages. The flexible tubes usually just slip over the backs of the valves. Spiders love to get in there and block them. Also check that the holes in the burners are not clogged. Be careful when reseating the flexible tubes to be sure that they are properly seated on the back of the valves. Failure to properly seat the flexible tubes can cause leakage there, and the gas can ignite at the back of the valves and not reach the burner. Be certain that the replacement burner is designed to use with your grill and the flexible tubes mate properly with the back of the valves.
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
Remove the grates and burner heat deflectors. There are 4 screws on the knob panel, 2 on the left and 2 on the right. Remove the screws and pull back about a inch or two. I found it helpful to open all the doors a bit to rest the panel on them. The burners should remove easily once this is done. Replace the burner tubes and be sure tubes have holes facing up on the one side for correct heat distribution. When placing the knob panel back on, make sure that burner tubes go onto the gas control knob correctly. Replace screws on the knob panel.
****Get a wire brush about the size of a tooth brush to clean the starter, the thing that makes the spark to start the 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.
The only way you can fix the low flame, low heat problem, is to remove the grill, take a medium sized paper-clip (staightened out) and clean out each individual hole on the steel burner, flame tube. (I'm sure there's a technical name for it).
Since they (the holes on the flame tube) face up unprotected, directly under the grill cooking surface they tend to get blocked quickly with continous use and certain foods, like pork ribs. Bad design unless all you plan on grilling is hot dogs.
There are about 500 individual holes, so plan on being there a while. Or in other words, do it close to the cooler.
I've been tempted to toss the thing into the woods a bunch of times over the past 2 years I've owned the dumb thing.
