Have you checked your regulator to make sure it has the proper settings?? Also, did you check your lines for blockage. Otherwise, there is not enough info to respond.

Natural gas and propane require different jets and inlets. You can not switch back and forth between the 2 (and may blow yourself in the attempt).

One suggestion.

Don't title your thread "Help". Try a title that such as "Tandoor Gas Problem"

Thumbs up Re: Help

Wasa.
as Tscarborough has stated, you need to re-jet your burners as the jets are definitely different from the 2 different gases.
Decide what gas that you intend to stick with and ensure that the jets are correct for that fuel.
The regulator for the lpg should also be checked for the correct pressure

Cheers.

More importantly, LPG is heavier than air, while NG is lighter, so there is always the danger of it pooling in a low spot (like a tandoori oven) and exploding. Best to stick with the NG.
