I own a "Q"120. There is very little gas running
"The thing on the side that says start and off is really loose" are you referring to the ignitor button? Please advise.
As far as the low gas pressure is concerned ... You may simply be running out of gas in the grill tank or if you're sure you have plenty of gas in the tank, the grill's regulator may simply be locked up. However, there is a way to solve the problem, without taking it somewhere.
First, turn the grill tank valve OFF, by turning the knob clockwise, until it stops. Disconnect the grill hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Then, reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light a grill burner and turn the flame to the highest setting. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light any of the remaining burners the same way. If all the flame heights have returned to normal, you've solved the problem.
If the above didn't solve the gas pressure problem, the grill's burners, venturi valves and/or burner orifices may need to be cleaned. In addition, the grill's hose/regulator assembly may need to be replaced. This can be purchased from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories.
Has far some place where you can take it for repair is concerned ... not knowing what area you live in, makes it impossible to recommend a repair place, in the event that there is one.
Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.
