Thank you for your question on the burners with low flame.

If you have popping sound when lighting the burners and you also have low flame, then I would say that the pressure regulator is lock down.

Also did the new burners have the primary air shutter on the burner tubes?

Try this out to see if it will improve the output.

Turn the valve on the tank off and remove the connector from the LP tank.

Then open all the valves on the grill for at least ten minutes.

Then close all the burner valves and reconnect the hose to the LP tank and make you have it secure. NOTE (The protrusion on the end of the connector pushes on a check valve on the LP tank valve and if you do not have it on all the way it will not push in the check valve far enough)

Then very slowly open the valve on the LP ONLY 1/4 of a turn. So you will be just cracking the valve open every so little.

Then open the gas valve on the grill the farthest from the LP tank and light that burner first and then light the remaining burners to see if the flame size improves.

If it does not then the replacement regulator may solve you problem because it does sound like a low pressure problem.

Sam, that is the way to reset a check-valve (changing 10 min to 3 min because we only want to allow any residual gas to dissipate) but the check valve is inside the valve above the OPD with the over-flow pressure release (triangle cut-out on side of cylinder valve). The check valve gauges the pressure that leaves the tank. The gas fills the gas line and manifold and then comes to the OFF control valves. The pressure stabilizes and the stabilized pressure should be the same as the "checked" pressure that leaves the tank. If the stabilized pressure is lower then the tank has discovered a leak and shuts down accordingly. This happens by mistake usually when the tank is very full. The OPD float is displacing liquid propane so the pressure hits the check valve too hard (like kicking a door open instead of holding a door open as you pass through) and the pressure set coming out is too high for the stabilized pressure to be the same. The tank "thinks" there is a leak and the valve closes. However, because the tank is over-filled with the displacement the gas will continue to come through and may ignite but it will be too low to cook. Reset as sam says above. The other thing to try if you are getting full pressure but poor flame is the orifice. The orifice can get tiny insects in the opening and behind the orifice in the control valve. Remove the orifice, blow it out, blow out the valve and replace. Also with the flames on and the control panel off you can loosen the set screw on the air shutter adjustment on the front tip of the burner. LP flames should be 1.25" long and blue with a yellow tip. Adjust the air shutter to get a better flame. Finally (lest i write all night!) if you remove the control knob there is usually a set-screw down inside the shaft. Us a flat head screwdriver, tiny and long to reach down into the valve. Do this with the burner burning so you can see the flame adjust but write down each adjustment so you can repair any over-adjustments.

Thanks for your note. I have been to that website and others sites that sell replacement parts. From those sites, discussions with people at those sites and my owners manual, I know exactly what the part looks like. I also know the length, width and thickness of both burners. What I do not know is the mounting hole spacing, which will tell me whether I can substitue the shorter burner (P02007051D) for the longer original burner (P02007049D).

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your grill. The information that you are looking for is not available outside the manufacture. I do not recommend that you use a different part from the original design, because it will not fit right, and can cause future issues with the grill. I know that one is more cost effective then the other, but it would be best to use the right part. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
