    Low flame level q200

    Hi

    Freebie q200 has cleaned up nicely and lights OK but the flame level is too low, even blows out with a bit of wind.

    The gas pressure is fine (gauge and use the same bottle with a q100).

    So where do I start? What could cause the low flame level?

    Again all usual suspects. Dirty burner, clogged spider guard, and finally what many Q200's are afflicted with a bad regulator. GOod news is the regulator/valve assembly is not expensive

    I agree with Larry. Start with the burners. Clean those holes out. If not, then go on to the next possibilty
    Grills and guns are a lot alike. While one would usually suffice and you can only use one a time, each grill/gun is better in certain situations.

    If you are using a hose to connect your propane tank to the Q, there is a check valve in the hose that can cause this symptom. To reset the check valve, close gas valve on propane tank and open gas valve on Q for a minute. Then, close gas valve on Q, SLOWLY open valve on tank, and let it sit like that for 5 minutes to equalize gas pressures. After waiting a full five minutes, open grill gas valve and light.
