I agree with everyone else, give bobs advice a shot before writing off your burner. I started using mine for 5 gallon batches, now it's on my new brew stand heating sparge water for 10 gallon batches. Gets up to temps in under an hour.

Something just ain't right here. I have an old version with 4 round stock legs with the same burner and just bought a new one of the current version with the 3 flat stock legs. I'm considering buying a third with the $10 off $50 purchase coupon Lowes just sent me because the new design is that much better. Don't leave the outside though. The cast iron burner will rust and you really will have flame issues.

Did you check the gas regulator hose for leaks? The first one I bought had a leak, in the hose, and Amazon replaced...

The burner, tank or regulator is causing it. Try the suggestions posted above. I can take 15 gallons from room temp to boiling in about an hour.

My guess is the propane tank safety valve engaged so fuel is barely trickling out. Close regulator valve, close tank valve, remove hose, reconnect hose, open tank valve, open regulator valve, ignite. This process will reset the safety valve.

Well, I was about to chuck this thing out the window until I read this - now it sounds like a jet engine and I'm getting ready to give it another shot.

Much appreciate the help

Try this sometime. With the tank and regulator disconnected from each other turn the tank and regulator valves open and screw the regulator on to the tank. You will hear a "tinck" sound. That is the safety ball actuating. Turn the regulator off, tank off, tank on, regulator on, and you should have gas flow. It's to keep people from not checking the appliance from hooking it up and filling the backyard up with propane while the neighbor is on the patio burning a cigarette.

Edit: don't try this with an old tank without the external threads and OPD. You would be venting propane from step 1.
