I had a similar problem. I took off the burner heat deflectors and seen gaping holes in the burner tubes. Get your model number and serial number and call Weber. Most Ducane grills have a 5 year warranty on the burner tubes. They will ship them free if under warranty!

Just bought a Weber Genesis II LX Model S-340 Natural Gas Grill. The plumber installed a 54' line, 1" in diameter. The grill will only heat up,to 400 degrees. What could be wrong?.


If he really installed a 54 foot line instead of a 54 inch line, the line is way to lone. The gas pressure isn't high enough to supply enough gas to the grill to get any hotter.

Why southbend temp various over the grill ? set on same settings but will be hotter in spots


This uneven heating is something "grillers" have dealt with since we started cooking...the heat is higher directly over the source and gets progressively cooler as you move away.. This is more pronounced with gas or electric grill/cookers..because the heat source is in a fixed position...WITH charcoal, you can spread the coals out (if you use enough).. and get even heat over a larger area.... I have a NEW 4 burner(w/hot pad) Charbroil gas grill and a old Charbroil charcoal grill...I HAVE NEVER used the gas grill...and I grill 1-2 times a week!! ..(it was a gift/two years ago.... wanna buy it?)

Are lava rocks used with charbroil 463731703? Can they be used with this bbq?


Since your grill uses a V - bar flame tamer over the burner, I wouldn't recommend using Lava Rocks. As there is no grate to set them on above the burner. Putting them directly over the V-bar flame tamer, won't allow the burner to heat evenly and you'll have hot and cold spots throughout the cooking surface.

Hope this answers you question.

Rear Burner is hotter than the front burner on my Weber Grill


Since the grill is 15 years old, it is probably time to rebuild it. Replace both burners and anything else that is not working properly

My grill burners burn unevenly and usually too high. Adjustment?


If this is a natural gas grill, check to see if it has a regulator on the gas line. If it does not, you can install a regulator to reduce the gas flow.

Turbo BBQ burns hotter at end


there is a larger groove in the rear of the burner to make it hotter in the back for searing. This is by design.

Gas grill conversion


It's safe, but you need to keep in mind that propane burns hotter than natural gas, so you won't need to turn the burners up as high for the same heat. Here's an article that explains some of the differences (but doesn't really answer your question): http://bbq.about.com/od/gasgrills/a/aa030505a.htm

Bottom line -- it's safe if you don't leave it cranked up to high flame. Two-thirds flame on propane should give about the same heat as full burner on natural gas.

Of course, you could change the jets. That would compensate for all the differences between NG and propane, and you could run the grill on full high heat if you wanted to.

Stove


Electric or gas? Is it clean and not lined with foil? If gas, does the flame all look blue along the burner length? If electric, how many elements are there? Do they all glow in the area where you expect them to when the unit is heating? Where are they? Answering these questions should lead to a solution.
