When did you last check the LP working pressure at the tank regulator? That might be the issue is the pressure is too low. Most shops have a manometer if you take it off and into them. Most are adjustable and if yours isn't and out of spec you can just replace it. Marshall makes about the best one for about $39 or so. Please get back to me if we need to dig deeper into this once you check that out as all follow ups are included in our fee.
