Default Gas grill replacement parts

I have a gas grill I have been using for a few years now, now the burners(assuming that is the name) hardly put out any flame at all. The fire barely comes out of them and not even all the way around the burner, just towards the front. Can these be replaced?

check for blockages in the nozzles, like insect nests/eggs

replacement is kinda a final option

Go to Lowes and pick up a generic kit for it. There's a whole section of replacement parts for gas grills.

What kind of burners? Are they steel? Then they are probably rusted and need replacements... I order mine online though I will never buy a grill with steel burners again...

Are they brass? Clean them.

yeah, clean the burner like everyone has mentioned then if that still doesn't do it, maybe the regulator is fucked. Or maybe your tank is empty.

First ensure that the tank is not empty

then get replacements if it looks at all rusty.

if that does not work - replace the regulator.

all stated above by KK - but the order is cost and probability
