My Weber Summit Grill is
The overfill protection device in LP tanks will cause this problem if you open valve quickly. Try closing the valve on tank, unscrewing the tank grill regulator to relieve pressure from hose and then screw it back on. Open valve on tank very slowly then open the burner farthest away from tank first to light. then light the remaining burners while working your way towards the tank side. This has fixed my problem of low heat several times but that is also caused when tank is getting low so make sure you do have propane in the tank. for a 20 lb tank, and empty tank is 17.5 lbs so a full one would weigh 37.5 lbs.

Full tank but no gas smell and just bought a new
follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Test the propane tank valve for leaks:
- Turn the grill control knobs on the front (and, on some models, the side) of the barbecue to the off position.
- Turn the propane tank valve fully counterclockwise to close it.
- Mix a test solution of equal parts of dishwashing liquid and water in a small container.
- To test for leaks, apply the test solution liberally to the
connection between the regulator fitting and the tank valve using a
small paint brush. Apply the test solution to the valve handle and
threads, the length of the hose, and the connection between the hose and
the regulator. If bubbles appear at any point, there is a gas leak.
- Tighten the connections and retest.
- If you still see bubbles at any of the tested connections, close the tank valve and replace the leaking component.
Test the hose fittings for leaks:
- With the tank valve open, brush the test solution on the fitting at the other end of the hose, located under the control knobs.
- Turn the control knob to high and test the hose and fittings leading
from the control knob to the grill. Turn the right control knob to off.
Repeat the process for the other control knobs.
- If you see any bubbles during any of these tests, close the tank
valve and contact your propane dealer or your local gas utility. Do not
use the barbecue until the leak is corrected

If you have an electric igniter, you need to locate where on the side of the grill the battery (e.g. AA size) that generates the electricity for the igniter is located. Replace the battery, and assure the contacts are cleaned (as they may have corrosion if grill located outside). Then check where the ground of the igniter is connected to the grill. I unscrewed the screw where the ground was located, cleaned off the corrosion with a fine sandpaper, then reconnected it to a new screw on the cabinet.

Replace burner tubes
It is not a hard job so I would say Yes you can replace the burner assy...go to walmart or your local bbq parts house...look at your burner first to get an idea of what it looks like before you go to purchase

The grill will turn on, the pilot light seems on,
The problem you're experiencing is due to the grills regulator being locked up.
To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:
1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.
If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's
Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or
hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it,
turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.
