Weber Grilling - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals
When I turn on the grill the gas flame does not go beyond about 1/3 of the way along the connector tube to the rear burner.
It could be a partially blocked gas jet or insufficient gas pressure is reaching the jet.
Clearly the pipes and valve should be checked if cleaning the jet doesn't provide a cure.
It is a good idea to compare the jet size and air bleed size with specifications. If it is set up for propane and being used with butane it will display the inefficiency you described.
There have been a few appliances designed for use with bottled gas that weren't intended to be used with a pressure regulator and lots of propane appliances that need a higher pressure than the standard fixed regulator can supply and an adjustable regulator should be used instead.

What is the life expectancy of a gas grill pressure regulator?
I've been in the propane business 28 years and have found regulators from the 1950's still in use today. Regulator manufacturers tell us they should be replaced after 25 years. It should typically outlast the grill itself, which often require new burners, cooking grids, etc. The hissing sound can just be the flow of gas thru the regulator. If you smell gas however, then you should replace it. If it is affecting the pressure to the burners and not getting hot enough to cook properly, then replace it as well.

How do I adjust the side burner flame on a Weber grill?
The burner has a fixed orifice, but there may be an adjustable air shutter (to adjust more or less air) at the end of the venturi tube that inserts over the orifice. If not, also try removing the gas valve knob and see if there is a small screw inside the shaft that you can adjust the flames. Most stoves have these. Also be sure the burner hasn't been spilled on. it may just need to be cleaned for a proper flame.
