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.

Hello. I have Weber Summit 670 NG and I would like to convert it to LPG. I was told that it can be solved if I replace the NG Orifice with LPG Orifice. Is that true ? Where can I buy the LPG Orifice...


Ronni, unfortunately none of the Weber grills are approved for conversion from one type of gas to another. Each grill is tested and approved for it's specific gas type. Based on that, converting it, places all the liability on you, if something should go wrong. In addition, it takes more than just the burner orifices to convert a grill safely. With any gas appliance, always err on the side of caution and safety.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Burners won't heat adequately when I plum to bulk propoane tank supply line at my house. What is psi weber requires? Grill works fine when connected to portable tank.


For gas, it's not the psi, you need to know. It's the water column inches of gas at the grill. In which case, it should be 11 to 13 WCI.

If you didn't remove the original gas regulator on the grill. That's the problem. You bulk tank already has a regulator. However, if you LPG System is a high pressure system, then you would need a regulator, but not the one you have. Check with your LP Gas provider for the Btu output regulator that would be required.

Can a weber summit s-440 built in grill that is natural gas be switched to a propane?


The easy answer is yes. Unfortuantely Weber no longer sells conversion kits, even to me, and I am an authorized Weber waranty service company. The only thing you can do is try and find a competant grill company in your area who has the expertise to buy the correct orifices and then the expertixe to drill them out to the correct size for LP gas. NG orifices are to large and will give you wild, uncontrollable flames if just hook the grill up to LP. LP orifices are smaller because LP gas burns hotter.

Grill won't heat up above 200 DEGREES with a nearly full tank


Try replacing the regulator and hose, not very expensive and fairly easy to do. If that doesn't help, let me know.

How do I convert a natural gas grill to propaine


You would have to get the orifices from Weber for your specific grill. A couple of weeks ago, Weber informed me that they would no longer ge doing conversions, so I don't know if you can get the parts or not. You would also need an LP hose and regulator and an LP tank.

My thoughts, are you turning tank off after cooking, not only turning of cooking valves but also turn off tank, if you don't gas will leak out. If you do turn tank off, then you have a leaking valve in the tank.

New webber will not start


Hello,
Ok, let's tackle the obvious things first. New grill with new tank... so was the tank filled? Did they purge it before they filled it? Did you turn the tank valve on very slowly? Were all the grill knobs turned to off when you turned on the gas tank? Try closing the propane tank valve, disconnecting it and reconnecting it. Then very slowly turn it on and light one burner at a time at turn to low heat. Then light additional burners the same way and adjust flame as needed after all are lit. Hope this helps! Douglas

Grill will not ignite even with manually trying


Can you hear or small gas? It's possible to may have turned the propane tank valve on too fast. Close the tank valve, disconnect it, then reconnect it. Slowly turn the tank valve back on and try lighting it again. Hopefully this is your solution, but let us know if you need more assistance.

Can't get a flame


Unscrew the fitting off the tank and make sure there isn't an extra washer in there. Sometimes when you get a tank there will be a washer inside it that has slid of the last guys POL(screw in hickey) With this extra washer, the POL isn't going in far enough to open the tank valve.
