New tubes, yes, but did you check each burner hole to make sure it is not clogged? Food and grease are frequent problems with the burners as the stuff drips onto them from above.

    They are new never used just installed today. Was thinking the regulator to the gas tank maybe not working?

    That is also a possibility, Pull it off and clean it up with clean, dry compressed air.

    Ok I ordered a new Regulator. The old one was not cleaning up. I Attached the new one and that was the problem! Thanks for your help!

    clogged ports is silly and no one who works on barbecues would think that because it is impossible -- and certainly on a new burner! it is a common misconception to be told the regulator is bad and this error is exacerbated by the problem being fixed when the regulator is replaced. however, the actual problem about 90% of the time is the check valve. resetting the check valve fixes this problem almost every single time but resetting the check valve includes clearing the lines which happens when the old regulator is removed. usually there is nothing wrong with the regulator but the check valve needs to be reset and the lines cleared to take it out of check.

SOURCE: my 1100lp when burners are

turn off the LP Tank, disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose and turn the tanl valve on very, very slowly, until it's fully open. Light each burner and turn it to high. Wait for the burners to heat up and turn them down gradually to low. If flame height on low has returned to normal, the problem is solved.

If that didn't solve the problem, the air shutters on each burner may need adjusting. Consult the installation instructions that came with the new burners for the proper setting or consult your Owners Manual.

If it's real real cold outside, it's not unusual for the burners set on low to have a problem. The only solution to that is let the grill preheat well, before turning the burners down. Also, grill with the hood closed on low, if it's a windy day.

Hope this helps you and gets you back to grilling again.

SOURCE: 3 burner - front and

It might be an igniter problem. It might be a problem with the gas tank (either empty or not releasing the gas). It could be a problem with the control valves or even with a safety mechanism that prevents relighting the grill after multiple tries because of a possible gas build-up. Make sure the gas tank is full and releasing gas - you should be able to hear a hissing noise in the burner compartment. If you can hear the noise then you need to check the igniter and make sure you are getting a spark, and that the spark is reaching the burner. If you can't hear a noise then either the control valves are the problem or the safety mechanism is operating. You can also call Weber and they are pretty good at helping you figure out the problem.

I have a pitco deep fryer... Everything works fine, but when the burners go off, I get a popping sound that blows out my pilot light


It sounds like the burners and tubes may be dirty and clogged in your fryer. The burners are removable and need to be cleaned periodically. The tubes can be cleaned when the burners are out using a burner cleaning brush. If the above mentioned items appear to be clean, you may have a gas pressure issue.

I am smelling propane at the cooking surface when I turn the burner knob to the ignite position. I have been unable to determine the source of the leak. We've had the grill for a couple of years and have...


When the knob is in the ignite position, the gas should be coming out of the burners at a rate sufficient enough to light. It's normal to smell it before the igniter (either electric or push-button) ignites the gas.
If you recently moved the grill with the internal parts still inside it, it's quite possible the burner tubes have become loose in the holders. They are quite easy to remove because they are a commonly replaced component. Remove the grates and flavorizer bars according to your manual, and you should be able to reach in and check the position and snugness of the burner tubes.
Make sure you close the propane valve and disconnect the tank before doing this. Also, don't smoke when working on your grill. :)

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.

gas regulator make sure all burners are off when you connect bottle... the units have a leak sensor and will stop the gas coming out because it thinks you have a leak when you connected the bottle. now try hooking up the bottle again with all the burners closed incl. the side burner and the infa red.

DCS 5 burner 30" oven makes loud noises as if starved for fuel


Hi; Is the oven run with LP or NAT gas. Sounds like a regulator problem not letting enough gas through. Also is this a comercial unit. If so when was the last time all burners and pilot orafices were cleaned out. The burner tubes have a air vent cut into the burner at the orafice. Make sure no debris have covered these airways.And lastly how old are the thermocouples and are they secure to the gas valves and have a good pilot flame on them...

Low flame even on high


Check the propane regulator if equipped
Check the gas orifices - they may be carboned up and require cleaning
Check the venturi tubes (the tubes that go over the gas jets) - they may have spider webs or other insect cocoons in them
Make sure the gas valves work correctly (high/low)
You mentioned that you replaced the burners - are they correct for the unit and installed ok?
Make sure the gas valve on the propane tank is opened all the way

The gas is coming through, but does not light.


I have the same grill,and sometimes the same problem.First,with the gas off or completely disconnected,remove the grill grates and the flavor bars from the grill.Now you can see the heating element.A small wire brush will do the trick.Gently clean all the little holes in the element where the gas comes out.Then,with compressed air or even canned air(like what you use to clean a computer with)blow out the holes you just cleaned.Reassemble the grill and light.Should work fine after that.

Pilot flame starved out after burners ignite


The declining pilot light might be an indication it is being starved of oxygen by the main burners or some other sort of circumstance.

I have noticed how in a closed room without ventilation the pilot light soon begins to decline and then springs back again when a window or door is opened while the main burners are hardly affected.

This is the gas equivalent of sending canaries down coal mines and is an essential safety feature. If the pilot light declines very much the thermocouple bulb will not be heated and the gas supply to the main burners will be cut off. This is why the pilot light is set at an angle and the thermocouple bulb is slightly offset.

I am not sure if this helps but I hope it does.

Weber Genesis Gold B Grill Problem


Could be partially clogged burner openings (jets).
Remove the cooking grates and the flavorizer bars. Obtain a BRASS brush (like used to clean white-wall tires) and brush the burner tubes from side to side and up and down along their entire length to remove all corrosion from the jets. Also the cross-over tube.
Before replacing the flavorizer bars and cooking grates, ignite all burner tubes and check to see the flames are all of about equal length and intensity.
If this isn't the problem, check the screens at the right-side ends of the burner tubes to be sure they're not clogged.
If the burner tubes are all clean and some don't ever ignite, the problem could be in the valves/manifold.
