Chances are that it is the thermocouple. Ive seen many on their way to going bad that held the pilot valve open so it kept the pilot lit, but after a couple minutes of burning, the vent gases pull the flame away from the thermocouple just long enough for it to quit. You could replace it , or try to adjust the pilot flame orifice in the direction of the thermocouple so that it has better contact with the thermocouple.

Sounds like you need a new diaphragm kit which goes between the fuel tank and the carburetor. I just found out that they actually sell these at Lowe's now: Item #: 21969. Replacement of this kit is better left to a professional, if you're not sure what you're doing. But if you're able to do it yourself, it will set you back a whole $3 USD. Best of luck.

My propane tank is full, but none of my 3 burners come on, 1 does very slightly but then goes out, help! thanks

Turn the propane tank valve to OFF. Disconnect the 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 tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner knob to high. Does the flame height look as it should? I f it does, light the remaining burners the same way, one at a time. Do all the burners burn as they should? If so, you solved the problem. If not, you need to replace the grill hose/regulator assembly. You can get one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Just take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helps and Happy Grilling!

Hello. Are you frustrated because your gas grill doesn't get hot enough lately. The problem you are having indicates that you have to go through a procedure called "RESETTING THE REGULATOR". Follow these easy steps:

1. Turn the burners on for one full minute and then off.

2. Next, remove the regulator and the hose from the tank.

3. Then reconnect the tank to the regulator and hose.

4. And very slowly open the tank.

5. Last step is to fire up the burners and start cooking with you new hot flame.

The problem began the first time you opened the valve on the tank too quickly. In the future, always turn the tank valve on s-l-o-w-l-y to prevent this problem.. Joe

There are only two items that will shut it down after it is set to run. The bucket full which you took care of and low humidity in the area it is being operated in. Low humidity would not constitute a reason for returning it.
