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.

Trying to address a leak on my Weber Genesis Silver B Grill, I replaced the hose/regulator. Unfortunately, I still hear gas flowing and smell gas if I do not turn off the propane tank valve completely. ...


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

My new Weber Genesis grill is leaking gas from LP tank when grill is turned off. The only way to keep gas from leaking is the turn it off at the tank valve. Once the valves on the grill are OFF shouldn't...


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--

I thoroughly cleaned my Weber Genesis Silver A and have a full tank of gas. It won't get hotter than 250-300 degrees. Flames are blue.


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.

This has worked on two different grills.

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.

Very low flame, like very little gas is getting thru, tank is ful


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.

Weber Genesis outdoor grill. The ignitor clicks


If you hold down the igniter can you smell the gas coming out of the burners.

Have you disconnected the pipe from the barbie to see if the bottle regulator is actually letting gas through.

Turning the gas on in free air with no one smoking or naked fllames near the pipe is ok

You just crack open the valve a turn or two and you should hear and smell it.

If there is gas coming out og the pipe and not out of the burners then the gas control valve in the barbie is at fault and needs replacing

Weber won't get very hot


Safety valve needs reset.
  • Close the LP tank valve
  • Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
  • Open the grill lid
  • Turn the LP tank valve until it is completely open
  • Wait several seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.
  • Turn remaining burners to High
  • Close the lid.
  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes
I called Weber and the rep walked me through the reset. All grills made after 1996 have this bypass valve.

Weber Silver Genesis C regulator purging gas after reset process


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.

Sounds like you have a faulty regulator. If you replace this make sure that you get a replacement of the same size.
