The Gas line Regulator to the tank is probably locked up. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the tank vale is fully open try lighting the burner and turn it to the highest setting. Do the flames look as they should? If so, you solve the problem. If not, are you sure you have enough gas in the tank to sustain the burners on high? If the gas level is Ok, then you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly, as the regulator has gone bad. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

    Important when lighting a Q model, only open the tank valve a 1/2 turn, wait a few seconds, then ignite the grill. After it is lite, then open the tank valve the rest of the way. If your Q still has a low flame, you can also remove the burner and clean it very easily.

When burning on low the bottom corners have a blue flickering flame and it gives off a propane smell

A blue flame is good, but depending on the heater there should be no smell. As I am sure you know, Carbon Monoxide is a great hazard. Any fitted flame heater should have adequate exhaust ventilation. You should also have carbon monoxide detectors on all levels.

My fire burns with an orange flame and is either on full heat or low heat, no inbetween so can't ajust heat properly, can I fix it myself and if so, how.

Don't know whether you can adjust to somewhere between low and high. However, the flame colour that you describe seems a bit off. I would have expected it to be bluer. The air/gas ratio might need adjusting and before you ask, I have no idea!

Lots of yellow - then very low heat

Are the flames still yellow? If so the burner just needs to be adjusted which is very easy? Look at the ends of the tubes that come out of the burner and end right at the back of the gas controls. You should see a small piece of metal that will slide or spin to close a hole. You want to close or open it a little at a time while the grill is burning. Adjust this until you only see blue flame or blue flames with a little bit of a yellow tip.

Will turn off after 1 min run on low heat burn

Hi Billie,

You didn't mention the model number, but they are all pretty basic. The flame sensor and thermo pile which are thin flame sensors, get charred and need to be cleaned. They should be cleaned with a soft cloth or even a dollar bill will work (a worn one)

When the heater shuts down it usually means it is not sensing the flame and this will cause it to shut off automatically. I have included a link to get the owners manual below.

Good luck and be sure to turn off the gas and power to the unit before working on it.
