When you turn on the main propane value (on the propane tank) do it real slow and easy. What might be happening is that the regulator on the unit is sensing too much propane at one time and is shutting down the flow. If this happens, you only get a small flame. You need to shut it down, wait about a beer, then try again REAL SLOW AND EASY.

Remember, slow and easy; as soon as you hear some gas going though, stop and see if it works. You can open the valve further if needed but take it slow.

This is how I made my Weber Q work after about 6 months. Now, it's great. I have to wrestle with it but at least it works now.

Silver C 2000 Model heats to 420 degrees with all 3 burners on Low. Normal? Weber support service has given me conflicting information. With 2 burners on Low it heats to 310-320 degrees.

That's fairly common with the lid closed and a day that is not too cool. Keep in mind that a gas flame is about 800F. Try using only one burner on low or between on and high to get a lower temperature. This is a grill, not a smoker or slow cooker.

It will run cooler with a large amount of food.

How do I take my Weber Genesis grill apart to clean the burners? The burners are not heating up properly. The flame is very poor and not hot enough to cook food.

Turn on just one burner, once it is lit, turn on a second burner, if the flame gets lower or goes out, you probably need a new regulator.

Uneven heat from burners

I'm experiencing the same problem, the left side has the least heat, and it seems to be getting way worse over time.  Has anyone found a solution for this yet?
