I seem to have the opposite issue. I bought a new Companion a few months back, and although I have learned its little quirks, I feel that it cooks a little hot, even on Low. I am leaning toward the regulator being a little off, but I am not sure how to adjust it. Maybe I need a different regulator?

would not even stay lit long enough to warm up yesterday set on high

Bill,
you are not getting enough gas through the burner. You need to find out why! Have you tried to clean out the burner of spider webs, etc. Bottle brush works good. If this doesn't help, you have a bad regulator or a regulator that is out of adjustment.

I had a identical issue. Make sure your propane cylinder is tightly screwed into your regulator. When I say tight put some umph into it.
