Barbecue Repair Parts
Don't let spiders crawl into your venturis, yearly maintenance part are available.
If you notice that your Barbecue is getting hard to light or that the flame isn't as strong as it should be, take the time to check and clean the VENTURIS.
In some areas of the country, spiders or small
inserts have been known to create "flashback" problems. The spiders
spin webs, build nests, and lay eggs in the BARBECUE VENTURI TUBE (s)obstructing the flow of gas to the BURNER. The backed-up gas can ignite in the venturis behind the control panel. This is known as a flashback, and it can damage your Barbecue and even cause injury.
To prevent flashbacks and ensure good performance the BARBECUE BURNER and VENTURI
assembly should be removed from the grill and cleaned before use
whenever the BARBECUE has been idle for an extended period of time.

Check that the gas jet is not partially blocked limiting the amount of gas out. To up size my bbq to a hotter flame I used oxy welding set tip drills and gently opened up a size. worked a treat and cooked quicker. maybe you can get next size jets for your problem. check that the regulator is not restricting the gas flow.
If you're cooking at the lowest setting and the flames are to high, you will need to replace the gas control valve for the burners. Coleman still stocks some parts for your model. Appliance Factory Parts carries a wider selection of parts. http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/
Since your grill only has one main burner and it requires more gas to heat with than the side burner. I still suspect you have a grill regulator issue. But, if you've done your research, you know it's easy to solve. Turn the propane tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank valve and wait at least 5 minutes before reconnecting it. Once it has been reconnected, turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, turn your main burner on, light it and turn it to high. Do the flames appear to be higher than before? If so, light and turn ON the Side Burner. Now do all the burner flames appear to be higher than before? If so, you solved the problem. If not, either the grillhose/regulator assembly needs to be replaced or the Venturi Valve on the main burner needs some adjusting. As the air to gas ratio may be off sightly.
Hope this helps to solve your problem and Happy Grilling!
I had the same problem with mine. I took the burner assembly at the knob apart and cleaned it and that worked for me. The grease from the meat dripped down on the gas orifice and hardened reduced the amount of gas being jetted to the burner. Hope this helps
Most modern gas regulators have a safety feature to prevent gas left on. If you shut off the tank first and then turn off the burners, it will trigger and keep the gas flow at a very reduce flow to prevent you from turning on the tank again with the burners left on and not realizing it.
Turn everything off and then turn on tank first, followed by the burners and this will solve most problems of a low flame or a bbq that won't get hot.
