Question about Weber Genesis Silver A Grill
Sometimes in colder weather, if the tank is less than full the gas can settle. Close the tank valve and unscrew the tank hose connecter. Turn the tank upside down several times and then reconnect and try lighting it up. That is usually fixes it.

IS PROPANE TANK RESIGNED TO BE MOUNTED VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL? The Outflow tube of the vertically mounted tank runs to within an inch of the bottom of the tank. The horizontally mounted Tank Design has an outflow tube that has a 90 degree bend half way down to 1" of the side of the tank if it mounted in the wrong orientation for it's design, it stops picking up LPG halfway down. When used in it's proper application, the orientation would be correct for gas pickup. A tank designed for horizontal mounting used in a verticle position picks up LPG for half of the tank, then it will light (because of the fumes are flammable) but do not posses the density to heat. (Too much Air) in the mixture fuel to air ratio. We found this out after pulling the shut off valve off of a tank with same problem. It was a horzontal tank used in a verticle positiuon. It worked for half a tank of fuel.

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.
