Check the throttle linkage to verify that it moves freely. Verify that you have the correct gas pressure per the manufacturers recommendation. Gas company can verify this for you. It' s not something that can be guessed at. Let me know how all of the above goes if issue is not resolved and we can continue. Thank you, Ken

That is so kind of you, hope you have a great day. Good luck with your repair. I was taught to start with the basics when troubleshooting. Always works for me.
