I need more information, but I suspect you may not have a large enough regulator on your propane line. The only way to know for sure is to attach a gauge called a manometer onto the manifold that feeds the gas burners. There is a 1/8 inch pipe fitting on the manifold for this purpose. It should read 10 inches of water column. You need a capacity to run about 300,000 BTUs when everything is on at the same time. This requires a large capacity regulator. Also the line from the regulator to the range should be at least 3/4 inch pipe.

This is a typical symptom of a failing LP regulator. Replace the regulator and hose that attaches to the LP tank. When a regulator is failing, it allows enough gas through for the burners to light, but not enough to keep all the burners going at the same level.

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!

Look for spider webs in the venturi tubes, check the orfices or it could be faulty controls. Verify the tank working properly by trying on another grill.

How do I take my Weber Genesis grill apart to clean the burners? The burners are not heating up properly. The flame is very poor and not hot enough to cook food.


Turn on just one burner, once it is lit, turn on a second burner, if the flame gets lower or goes out, you probably need a new regulator.

Propane flame is not blue but too high


A yellow or orange flame means (1) too much fuel, or (2) not enough air. Make sure the air ports where the regulator attaches are clear and that spiders or bugs haven't built a nest in the burner tube. If that's all clear, it's likely that the propane regulator has failed and is allowing too much fuel to enter the burner tube. The regulators are inexpensive and are not repairable; get a replacement unit.

It is possible that your burners are clogged. Clean the burner ports with a paperclip (not a toothpick).
