Have everything cleaned up and bad parts replaced. fill lp bottle. Did a preheat and 2o minutes to 325 degrees. In examining the flame- everyone talks about a orange tip flamed. Adjusted the air shutter all the way both directions. What I settled for was a blue flame that had a hint of yellow. But the yellow was not at the end of the blue flame. I would say I had an inner primary blue flame and an outer secondary blue flame. The orange is on the tip of the inner blue flame- When I adjusted the air to get the yellow on the end of the secondary flame- I had what I would call a lazy flame- Do I have the flame adjusted right- the orange tip at the inner blue primary flame.

It sounds like it. Mine is all blue with well defined small yellow tips. When I first bought my Apex, it had all blue, was running hot and there was just too much air. My flame went out about five times before I adjusted the shutter. Your temp is still at 325 with the flame that way?

Wayne

After 20 minutes of preheating, the temp on the thermometer was 325 degrees, previously testing, shows me the cooking surface was probably closer to 375 degrees.

Is this an older grill? I have read many posts that reference lower temperatures on older grill models. Mine averages 425(2008 Model).

Wayne

The grill is about 8 years old, can't give you an exact date off of the top of my head.

Wayne,
You need to call Holland with the model number, serial number & age of your grill, as well as how you have it hooked up to the fuel.
The standard on older grill models is 400 degrees in 30 minutes. Let it preheat for 30 minutes with no food on the grill & record the temp.
