Question about Weber Baby Q Grill
After a four year love affair with my Baby Q it has just cheated on me. It has really high flames now. On low, it is about twice as high and hot as it ever was previously on high.....on high it is a virtual flame thrower. It is unusable, everything gets burned. Any ideas as to why? Or should I just start a new love affair with a newer model? Thanks.

Agree with rjmbridge. I called the Weber support people and was told that there is a built in safety feature on the regulator that will cause the flame to burn at a low setting if the gas within the extension tube to the large tank and regulator is not allowed enough time to equalize. They suggested turning on the gas from the tank very slowly, allow about 2 minutes with the temperature control knob turned off, then turn the temp knob on and light. This worked for me.

CALL WEBER! They'll get some information from you and then either help you fix the problem, replace the defective part or replace the grill. They've never failed to solve a problem I've had with a Weber Grill!

I had this problem with a brand new grill so it wasn't grease in the hose. Due to the new propane regulators you have to turn the propane tank on for at least a minute before turning the grill to light. Let the tank sit in the light position for five seconds and then you light the grill. This will keep air from getting into the intake hose and will keep your gas flame roaring high.
I was only able to get the grill up to 250 degrees before I found this fix posted on the Weber site. It is listed as the number one solution in the FAQ section.

You will need to replace the control knob assembly. Which includes the tank hook up & regulator. Contact Weber Customer Service @ 1-800-446-1071 for this part.
Hope this helped you.
