first of all, get some high pressure air and blow it out thoroughly. that fixes many burner problems.

Do you have a flame color problem or is this a problem with the flame blowing out? Many of us have built additional baffles (small aluminum boxes that surround the burner area--I had to do this on a new replacement fridge) to prevent the latter.

What Zep said! Plus a cleaning of the burner itself with a wire brush might be a good thing at this point also. When you adjust the air gate, your flame should be a vigorous, bright blue when the proper amount of air is mixed in with the LP.
