If the valve is stuck and wont budge, the only real solution is to have is replaced. Unfortunitly, Weber does not sell the valves separately and you would have to replace the entire manifold. Before going out to buy the parts, call Weber to see if your still under any warranty, even if your not they still sometimes send parts at no charge.

Mix some water and detergent together - where ever it bubbles that is where the leak is. Sometimes the thread is worn so get some GAS Tape and undo the thread - wrap tape around re-tighten and then check for leaks again with soapy water
Hi, W/D here. The answer to your question is yes AND no. You'd think that the valves on the grill would shut off the gas tightly, and usually, they do, but they are really designed to regulate the flow range as opposed to being a tight shut-off valve. The tank valve, on the other hand, is a positive isolation block valve, and that's it's only job. When you have finished grillin' for the day, close the valve at the tank, let the gas in the line burn off at the burners, then close the valves on the grill. This gives you 100% shut-off with no residual gas pressure in the lines. Best regards, (and when will the ribs be done?), --W/D--
You might have air block. When turning off the grill, leave one burner on and shut the tank valve.
When grill cools, close the remaining valve. When restarting the grill, open the tank valve, then the start burner, then the igniter. When first burner is going, open remaining two valves to preheat the grill.
My thoughts, are you turning tank off after cooking, not only turning of cooking valves but also turn off tank, if you don't gas will leak out. If you do turn tank off, then you have a leaking valve in the tank.
Okay, what you are dealing with is called "vapor-lock". The way these grills need to be turned off is, close the tank valve first and after the burners go out, then turn the burners off. The way you are doing it is trapping the gas and you are getting a weak flame. Fortunately this is an easy fix. First, light the grill by turning the gas valve open, then turn the burners on to light the grill...as soon as that is done, close the gas valve on the tank then turn the burners off. Repeat this procedure until you get a good flame. If this procedure hasn't fixed the problem after the third time, you need a new regulator and regulators are easy to find in any home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot.
This could be caused by a couple of problems. First the regulator could be bad, or the tank is getting to hot. Which causes the relief valve to open and release pressure. This will happen when weather outside is hot.
