Question about Uniflame Grilling
Turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve On VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner and turn it to the highest setting. Do the flames appear to be correct for the highest setting? If so, you've solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY.
If that didn't solve your problem, the grills regulator is permanently locked up. You will need to replace the hose/regulator assembly. You can purchase one at any hardware or home center store that sells gas grills. Take the old one with you for comparison purposes.
Hope that solved your problem and Happy Grilling!!

Here's the problem and solution. The LP tank has what's called an OPD Valve. It prevents overfilling. However, if you turn the tank valve ON as you would normally do, it shoots high pressure to the grill's regulator and locks it up.
Solution: Turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Now, turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow), until the valve is fully open. Turn ON and light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. Repeat that procedure with the remaining burners. Have the flames returned to a normal height? If so, you solved the problem. If not, repeat the procedure again, but this time leave the hose disconnected for 10 minutes. If both attempts fail, you will need to replace the grills hose and regulator, as the regular is locked an won't release itself. You can find the hose/regulator assembly at any home improvement store or hardware store.

SOURCE: Full propane tank but grill
Since 1995 all regulators (the part that attaches to the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a gas leak. This safety device can be inadvertently activated in two ways, putting the grill into what is commonly called "bypass". The first way for the device to be activated is to leave one or more burner control knobs in the "ON" position when the LP cylinder valve is opened. The second is not to wait long enough to "start" the grill after opening the LP cylinder valve. The safety device in the regulator is activated each time that the LP cylinder valve is opened. The device resets itself when the gas pressure equalizes between the closed burner control valve and the regulator, through the hose. If a burner control knob is turned on before the gas pressure can equalize, the device will remain in "bypass". The length of time necessary to wait to "start" the grill after turning on the LP cylinder valve is dependent on the length of the hose and outside air temperature. It is always good practice to wait a few seconds after opening the LP cylinder valve before turning on the burner control knob to start the grill. You may need to replace the regulator if the problem persist.
