Why won't my Weber grill ignite after installing a


Disclaimer- be careful when working with gas. Starters in gas grills are just about novelty anymore. Often, they only light 1/3rd or 1/4th of the burners and they usually stop working within one grilling season. I recommend using a wand lighter. Try to light just one burner but if doesn't light in 5 to 7 seconds, turn the gas off and wait to try again. Incidentally, you are turning the gas on at the tank, right? You should hear it when you turn the burner on.

Put on new tank and grill won't ignite. Connection is tight. Once I heard the gas and now nothing. It's been days. I tried cleaning out a bit. The large black plastic cap does have some cracks...


I don't think you need a new ignitor kit. The problem isn't there. It's the grill's regulator.
However, I do have some concern with the cracks inside the Hose Connect to the tank, being cracked. That should be replaced. You can pickup a new Hose/Regulator Assembly for about $30.00 any hardware store or home improvement center that sell grills and accessories. Take the old one with you for comparison purposes.

After installing the new hose. Open the Gas Valve on the tank VERY. VERY Slowly (Slow motion, slow). Doing it this way will, eliminate the problem you're having now. And always to it this way in the future.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My grill has 4 burners. When I light the first one, everything is fine. When I go to light the second one, it sounds like it is cutting off the gas and it won't light. You can hear the gas coming out...


The problem you're having is a result of the gas tank & the grill's gas regulator. However, in most cases, it's solvable if you do the following.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF & disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) .

4. Once the valve is full open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set it on HIGH.
Does the fame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the exact same way.
Did all the burners light and the flame heights look correct? Is so, you solved the problem.
Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at hardware stores or home centers that sell grills & grill accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

When I try to light my brand new Q300, it won't ignite. I can hear that the tank is on and gas is being sent to the grill. However, it doesn't light. When I shut the grill off and the gas tank...


What you have is delayed ignition. It's being caused by the gas regulator. It is solvable, though.

Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

Once the valve is fully open, light 1 burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and does th eflame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner the identical same way. Now, to both flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly. And always light the burners with the Lid/Hood Open.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly. Since your grill is brand new, the Hose/Regulator Assembly will be covered under Warranty. Have your Proof of Purchase handy and call Weber 1-800-446-1071. Also, if you haven't done so already, register your grill before calling http://help.weber.com/register/ even if you don't need a new Hose/Regulator Assembly.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem.

Second third and fourth burner will not light?


Susan, there are several reasons that can cause the problem you described. The first being that theburners that won't light need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. The cleaning also requires cleaning the Venturi Valve on each burner. The Venturi Valve will look like 2 slots cut into the side of each burner tube near the burner's open end, that fits over the burner orifice. Spiders like to build nest in the Venturi Valves. Be sure to turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank, before attempting any work on the grill. After you have finished cleaning everything, reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until it is fully open.
Then light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. If the flame height kooks correct, light the remaining burners the same way. If all the burners lit and the flame heights look correct, you solved the problem (with a little help).

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

When i push igniter it clicks but burners won't come on and i do not even smell gas , i burped it and turned gas tank upside down once, still won't work, grill is only 5 yrs old.


It sound s like the grill's regulator is locked up from "burping" the tank. Hopefully it's not a permanent lockup. To hopefully solve the problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Turn the burner(s) ON for 1 Minute, Then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes reconnect the hose to the tank and open the valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow
motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? Id so, light the remaining burner the way. Did it light and the
flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help).

If the above didn't solve the problem, the Hose/regulator Assembly needs to be replaced. What happened was this, when you turned the tank upside to "burp" the tank. The OPD Valve shot a hot load of gas to the regulator, when you opened it, as you normally would and permanently locked up the grill's regulator. That "burping" trick used to work with the old style tanks. Won't work with the new ones. You can get a new hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store, that sells grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes. Once you install the new one and connect it to the tank. Open the Valve Very, Very Slowly, until it is fully open. Or you may have the same problem again.

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

Gas grill wont lite manuallly


Do you mean it won't match light or the ignitor won't spark and light the burners? Or both?

If it won't match light or the ignitor sparks, but the burners don't light, that means you're not getting gas to the burners.

Check to the tank valve and make sure it's turned ON. Also, make sure that there's gas in the tank.
If both of those check out as OK, turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and the flame height looks correct? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. Now, are they all lit and the flames heights look correct? If so, you solve the problem. Just remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if the burners failed to light. Remove and clean all the burners, as well as the venturi valve on the open of each burner. Spiders like to build nest in the venturi valves.

if cleaning the burners did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find it in any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories, for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please be kind enough to let me know. Thanks and Happy grilling!!

Brinkman gas grill won't start. Don't hear clicking sound. Hooked up new gas tank, but no success


Victor, are you sure you're getting gas to the burners after installing the new tank? You can try match lighting them to make sure. But, I suspect, that it's the installation of the new tank, that's causing the problem.

To test my theory, tune the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Ope the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, try lighting the burner that's farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining 3 main burners the same way. Did those burners light and the flame heights looks correct? If, so you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

I have cleaned all of the inside of grill because the burners will not light. I went over vent holes with wire brush but still won't light. What is the problem? What else should I do?


Have you tried to manually light the burners with a lighter? If so and you can not light the burners then you have 1 of 3 things that usually happen. First and forth most you have a blockage in the lines. You should be able to hear gas going throught the line and out of the vent. If you couldnt light the burners manually then this is probally the issue. Check your lines and connections at the bottom of the burners. The second thing could be that is your tank is just to low or empty. I have left the burners on and ran through my gas with out knowing it so check the tank. The last thing it might be is the regulator is broken. After checking the lines for blockage you have to check the gas regulator on your hose and the tank. If it is this problem let me know after you get through the rewst of the checks.

Thanks
Mike
