Grill Blew up

Last night I woke to the smell of gas, and went down to check the grill. Two of the dials had blown off and melted. The gas leak was clearly from the gill. I opened the cabinet and shut down the gas and realized the regulator hose was melted so badly that it was no longer connected to the grill and the cabinet door was singed. We typically always turn the tank off, but to forget this particular evening. This is of great concern, as the outcome could have been worse regarding safety, as well as the gill is totaled and it's only a year old. Has anyone else had these issues?

Yes...........I just had my grill go up in flames as you discribed. The gas hose fitting is a crimpedconnection that connects the hose to a small male fitting. This is not properly enginered ... there should have been a brass conection there. JT

You may have to recheck the tank for full. If you forgot to turn off the tank after the last time you used the grill, the tank could have leaked down. I always keep a spare full tank for just those types of problems. If the tank is full, then the regulator may have a problem. That grill should be able to get over 300 degrees.

I have a gas leak coming from grill, gas is turned off. Is this a common problem and is it a simple fix?

If you still have a leak when the gas tank is turned OFF, it's not the grill leaking it's the propane tank valve leaking. Carefully disconnect the hose from the grill (No Smoking) and move the tank as far from the house as you can, into an open area, where the gas can dissipate. Propane gas is heavier than air, it doesn't rise it falls. If after doing this and you still smell gas leaking from the tank, contact your local fire department.

Need photo of how to replace the 5 "V" shaped

The 'V' shaped metal bars are the flavorizer, flame tamer or whatever Weber wants to cal them. They go over top of each burner from front to rear, setting on the ledge of the interior of the grill, just above the burners. make sure that cover each burner equally. Now's a good time to clean them if they have a lot of grease on them.

Since the grill was blown off your deck ... make sure all the burners are intact are not damage and there are no gas leaks from tank to the grill.

Relace your propane regulator, they do go bad form sitting around, had the same problem you have. you should be able to disconnect from the grill, turn on the regulator and smell the propane, if not it's bad.

I have a full propane tank. I bbq'd about 3 weeks ago, same full bottle. Grill will not light. Good spark at ignitor. Used lighter and lit for a few seconds with low flame on high. No other burners will...

You may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Turn it back off, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn the valve back on. Light one burner at a time and turn to low before lighting the next. If you are hearing and smelling gas with the tank on but all grill knobs off, don't use the grill. You may have a leaking grill valve, regulator or hose. If you are only smelling gas with the knobs on, it's possible you have a clogged burner or orifice from bug nests, spiderwebs, etc and need to clean it out first. Hope this helps. Douglas

Gas grill caught fire

The anwer is not the one you want before Labor day cook-outs. Since the unit is under recall, go the manufacture's site, or any site specified in the recall notices, and follow the directions, to get replacement parts for all damaged parts from the fire, as well as the original defective parts. Hopefully you can take the unit in for exchange for a fully assembled one. Be polite but firm in wanting the units assembled gratis.
