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!!

My control knobs are getting really hot and are actually melting


Sounds like the Venturi Valves on the burner may be partially clogged and the flame is big firing around the burner orifice. This is fixable, but requires removing and cleaning all the burners and their venturi valves.

One other thing it might be, and this will depend on how old the grill is and how well cared for the grill is. The burner's manifold may be leaking. That's a more serious problem, that requires quite a bit of work to replace.

Go with the first solution first and if the doesn't solve the problem, it will be the second one.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My weber genesis silver starts up, but doesn't get hot enough to cook the food. Seems like not enough flame out of either front or back burners. I tried Outting in a full propane tank, but that didn't...


Try these steps in order.
  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally

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.
