Ducane Grill Burner

How do I install the burner tubes.  It seems impossible. The original tubes split after one year and I can't get the old ones out in order to install the new ones.

You will need to unscrew the sides of the unit which houses the dials and ignition (This is connected to the burners). Pull it out, and they should come off rather easy if they are old. Slide them towards the front and out of the rear slots. When putting the new ones in, it is as simple as reversing what you did to take them out. You will need to go forward, into the holes, then toward the rear slots and lock them in place. You will then line up everything and screw the unit back into place. Much easier if you can get someone to help you for 10 minutes, but easily done by 1.

There is a keeper ring ( looks like a bobby pin / hair pin ), that holds the burner tube to the gas valve, remove it and the tube slides off.

When replacing the new burner there is holes that go around half the burner at the front. is it to be on the top or bottom


Due to the way the burners are designed, with a tab on the closed end of the burner that, fits into a slot on the back, inside wall of the grill's body. The burner will only install one way, because of that tab and split slot design. If you get that correct, it will be installed properly.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

How do I remove the old burners to replace with new?


Should be as easy as removing the screws at the ends of the tubes and sliding the tubes away from you and putting the new ones in like you took out the old ones.

I have a ducane stainless steel ducane 30400042. Weber has sent me new burner bars since the old ones rusted but you do I install them?


Remove the grates and burner heat deflectors. There are 4 screws on the knob panel, 2 on the left and 2 on the right. Remove the screws and pull back about a inch or two. I found it helpful to open all the doors a bit to rest the panel on them. The burners should remove easily once this is done. Replace the burner tubes and be sure tubes have holes facing up on the one side for correct heat distribution. When placing the knob panel back on, make sure that burner tubes go onto the gas control knob correctly. Replace screws on the knob panel.

****Get a wire brush about the size of a tooth brush to clean the starter, the thing that makes the spark to start the flame.****

Need to replace burner tubes on a Ducane grill. How do you do this? How do you get the old one off? I don't have a manual anymore.


First call Weber to receive the Warrenty burners for free. Have model and serial numbers ready. They can be found on one of the doors. Here is what I did for my Ducane model 30400042.

The burners sounds like a jet plane.


make sure the burners are clean, each and every little hole must be clean. It sounds as though the flame is burning near the inlet of the burner which can occur if the holes are restricted too much.

Meridian 5 burner trouble


Yes you can fix it. Carefully remove the screws that hold the panel where the burner knobs are, There are 3 screws on each panel under the side shelf. There is another screw up underneath the face plate as well. Once the screws are out pull the face plate up and out so that all the tubes are disengaged. It should rest about 2 inches tilted back. Now remove the grates and burner covers and inspect the burner tubes. You will most likely find that spider webs or hornets have blocked off the gas flow to the burner. carefully clean every burner tube out and put everything back. You also may want to use a bit of sandpaper on the ignitor tip. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. It seems all Ducanes attract spiders on the burners...

Gas burners heat unevenly


I had a similar problem. I took off the burner heat deflectors and seen gaping holes in the burner tubes. Get your model number and serial number and call Weber. Most Ducane grills have a 5 year warranty on the burner tubes. They will ship them free if under warranty!

Burner replacement on Ducane 30400040


Remove the 2 grill wire cooking racks by lifting them out of the top of the grill, next lift out to remove the 3 heat deflector panels which exposes the 3 burner tubes. Remove the 4 screws located on the outside flanks (2 on each side) of the 5-knob control panel assembly - then gently slide the knob control assembly outward and away from the grill just about an inch or two. You can now remove the old burner tubes and replace them with the new units. Then simply slide the control assembly back into the grill frame and replace/tighten the 4 screws. Voila`
