Two burners run too hot with yellow flame.


Hello,
It sound like your back burners have a partial blockage or possibly are rusting or falling apart or have cracked seams. Remove the cooking grids and burner shields, and examine the burners closely. If you can't find a blockage inside (spider web, bugs nest, etc) then their condition is probably deteriorating. Let us know if you need more assistance.

Very low flame, like very little gas is getting thru, tank is ful


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.

I have a Kenmore 4 burner grill that I purchased about 3-4 weeks ago. 3 of the 4 burners have nice blue flames and work very well but the left middle burner gets a huge yellow flame no matter what temp it...


does the same burner flame turn blue if other burners decreast in flow-with that burner on high and others low-is it still yellow? if so Gas Valve needs to be replaced.

When ever we get a full 20 lb. tank of lp gas, our 3 burner weber grill has a very low flame and it goes out frequently with low heat until it runs for a long time, then it runs normal.


Hello.
It sounds like your regulator is not quite right. Try a different one, or just replace yours. New regulators are inexpensive, and are available at Lowe's/Ace/Similar.
Best regards (and happy grillin'), --W/D--

The gas flow cannot be raised and a slight breeze puts out the fl


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

One burner has low 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.
