Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill

1 Answer

My Weber Genesis Silver Grill seems to have a gas leak which resulted in a flames shooting outfrom under the middle burner control knob which melted that control knob so now I Can't use that control at all. Front and rear burners still ignite but auto ignition switch/button won't work either(it is stuck in the down position/ won't pop back up when you push it and doesn't ignite)

Jeanne - Did you remove the burner to clean? If not. you weren't able to clean the Venturi Valve, which is part of the burner. Spiders love to get in the Venturi Valve & build a nest. When that happens it stops the gas to that burner. I suspect, that may be the problem. The Venturi Valve, is part of the burner (the open end part) that's closest to you, when you face the front of the grill. It will look like 2 slots (one on each side) cut out of the burner tube, where it fits over the burner orifice. But, you can't see it, without removing the burner. An old tooth brush works well to clean it.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

I now have a 3 burner weber gas grill and am thinking of buying a 2 burner weber gas grill - how do you use indirect cooking on the 2 burner grill - will there be one burner that is turned off under the...


Well, I personally, wouldn't want to go from a 3-burner to a 2-burner because I think Weber designed the 3-burner grill to perfection, and as you know, all you have to do is turn off the middle burner.

At any rate, indirect is harder with the two-burner because of the placement of the burners. You can try to put some 1" thick ceramic bricks directly on the flavorizer bars in the middle, or if you are using a rotisserie, put a pan under your meat.

Our weber grill is suddenly getting too hot... even with only 1 of the 3 burners turned on it is over 400 degrees... any ideas?


Sounds like the regulator is not controlling the flow of gas. Try this. 1. Turn gas tank and burner control knobs off. 2. Turn tank valve on VERY slow. 3. Open front burner knob on and lite grill. Wait a minute and turn on addition burners, (if needed).

One burner has low flame


Try looking for webs back to where the burner tube meets the valve. Otherwise you need to remove burner tube to access back of valve to clean with a torch tip cleaner or compressed air, (remember to disconnect grill from gas source first) inside valve orifice.  Usually the back of valve can be removed with a wrench. Worst case you always get a new valve off internet if you can't resolve the plug. Hope this helps, good luck.
