Open Question

Re-installing crossover tube into new [replacement] burners

In which direction is the crossover tube installed? (this is the tube that carries the flame from the front burner to the middle and rear burners, along the left side of the fire box).

which way do the holes face? in which direction does the "tab" face? the manual does not address this.

also, if this piece is installed incorrectly, will it cause the center and back burners to not ignite? or will it keep them from burning at all, even if lit with a match?

SOURCE: Low flame/ side burner dosen't light

I just read this online and it worked for me. Hope you have similar luck.

Newer propane tanks contain a self regulating feature that will automatically slow down the flow of fuel if it thinks it's too high. This can be solved by turning the tank valve off completely and disconnecting it. Open the control valves (on the grill control panel) and ten close them. Reconnect the fuel tank and slowly turn on the valve. Now light the grill to see if that fixes it.

SOURCE: flame not staying lit

This is a common problem with grills purchased after 2001. There is a new safety feature inside the regulator called a 'surge protector'. If you open your propane bottle valve too quickly or if you try attaching a tank with the tank valve in the 'open' position, the propane wants to 'surge' into the grill.

When the propane surges into the regulator (located on the grill hose) the 'surge protector' (inside the regulator) kicks on. When this happens you will not be able to get your grill lit, and if you do, it will be a small blue flame and the grill will not heat up.

So what to do if you trip the surge protector and can't get your grill to light or heat up?

Shut the tank off and shut the valves on the grill off. Disconnect the tank from the grill hose. When you disconnect the tank from the hose you will hear the excess pressure of propane release. This is an indication that you have re-set the regulator's surge protector.

Now that you have deactivated or reset the surge protector, reconnect the tank. Make sure the valve on the tank and the valves on the grill are in the closed and in the off position. After you reconnect the tank to the hose, SLOWLY open the tank valve (making sure the valves on the grill are in the OFF position).

Since you have slowly opened the valve on the tank, the propane did not surge into the regulator and the surge protector did not activate.

Now open 1 valve on the grill and light it. You should get a nice flame. If your grill has more than one valve, open each following valve in sequential order to extend the flames to the other burners.

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.

I think I need a new crossover ignition system for a Genesis 320 natural gas grill, where can I get one? I cannot find the correct one on your website.


Nancy, we don't have any parts on the FixYa website. But, if you're referring to to the crossover burner, that lights the last burner, you can find it at the following link under "tubing". http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/gasgrillparts/brands/weber/weber-tubing.html

Hope this helps you and Happy Grilling. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

If the cross over tube burner has rusted to the point of collapse is a pretty good indicator that it needs to be replaced. I personally, don't see in correlation between LP tank and the collapse of the crossover tube burner. A weak tank, as you called it, would not have any bearing to it.

Now, if you're match lighting the other burners and the flame height remains low, even when turned to high. That's a problem with the grills regulator, which can easily be solved.

Turn the 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), until the valve is fully open. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner to HIGH. If the flame height now, looks correct, light the remaining burners the same way. If all the flame heights have returned to normal, you solved that problem.

if it didn't solve the problem, you need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly and the crossover tube. The hose/regulator assembly can be purchased at any home center or hardware store, that sells gas grills and accessories. Tank the old one with you for comparison purposes. The Crossover Burner can be purchased from Weber or Factory Appliance Parts http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/

Hope this aids you in troubleshooting and solving the problem. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Yes, you probably could for a while. But, the rust and corrosion is going to spread to the other burners eventually.So, it would be better to replace, what's needed. The parts are available directly from Weber
http://store.weber.com/parts/gas/ Or from Appliance Factory Parts
http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/

The parts you need are not expensive and are fairly easy to install.

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

Hello, The model number that you gave is relatively simple to change the burners.

  1. Remove the 3 cooking grids
  2. Remove the 3 vaporizer tents
  3. Between each burner is a "pal nut" that just pushes on and will likely be destroyed when you remove it. They run a couple bucks each at Sears, part # 7000132
  4. This will release the carry over tube holding the burners down and the burners can be lifted out.
  5. Ensure that you clean out the carry over tube when you reassemble. This carries the flame from the first burner across to each of the rest of the burners when lighting them.
  6. Reassemble in the reverse order ensuring that you put the burner tubes over the burner valve tubes when reassembling.

How do i change a 2004 Lincoln LS fuel pump?


Hi. here's how to change the fuel pump. The actual electric fuel pump is in the tank on the right side. The tank is directly below the rear seat. If you remove the seat bottom you will find a 6 inch or so cover. Under the cover there is a plastic, threaded collar that locks the fuel pump into the tank. The driver's side also has a pump, but it works only my venturi effect from the electric pump on the other side. This pump is used to equalize the fuel level from left to right. The drive shaft tunnel prevents all but the very top of the tank from communicating left to right.

Burners two and three will not light unless direct flame is put to it. Burner 1 will light off the ignitor.


Hello, there is a carry over tube that looks like a burner hold down at the back of the grill. This is likely rusted closed and will need to be cleaned or replaced. The clips that hold the tube down are part # 7000132 and the tube part # is 7000279. They can be purchased directly from Char-Broil or Sears parts.

How to wire in a cross over


You didn't say if it was active or passive, but here is both:

Passive crossovers are easy to install. By definition, the only type of connections they require are to your speaker line. They typically get installed between the end of the speaker wire and the speaker. Connection should be fairly simple, just like hooking up the speaker itself.

Now F-Mod crossovers modify the audio signal before it is amplified. They accept the patch cord from your receiver on one end, and then plug directly into the preamp inputs on your amplifier. They are also easy to install, and don't require additional wiring.

 An active crossover requires a little more work. You have to connect 12-volt power, ground, and a turn-on lead. The active crossover gets installed between your receiver and your amplifier. A lot of active crossovers have both speaker-level and preamp inputs, so they can usually work with either type of connection. The outputs will be preamp connections to your amplifier. Hope that helps.
