My propane tank is full, but I get low flame and it takes forever even to get to 300 degrees
Sometimes it works great other times the flame is low on all 4 burners and has trouble heating up. Outside temperatures run from 60°F to 25°F
- My original answer is below but if you are reading this out of interest at a later date then check the comments below because there's some interesting ideas from our fellow readers together with the actual solution to this particular problem.
The boiling point of propane is −44°F (−42°C) so unless you have a severe winter you have gas. That's not your problem.
It would appear from what you've told me that the problem you have is the flow of gas and there's three things that I would check:-
- Are your burners clogged up? They can get blocked if you've had a lot of fat dripping onto them. Given that you have the problem with all four burners at the same time then this is probably the least likely answer.
- Check your regulator because it's the regulator that controls the flow of gas. Are you sure it's a propane regulator? Is it an old regulator? If you have any doubt or concern, get another regulator, they're not expensive.
- Check the faucet on the tank. This is purely mechanical so highly unlikely to be faulty but just check that you can turn it on an off. Note when turning a tank faucet on, turn it completely on the back off half a turn, that way you minimize the risk of the faucet getting frozen in the on position.
