My weber grill is not putting out enough heat--both burners ignite, but I can't turn them up to get a higher flame/higher temparature. The grill is about 5 years old. How can I clean the burners to get a...
follow the below procedures on how to clean the burners for your grill:
Shut off the gas. It is very important that you turn off the gas valve
to your BBQ before you can begin to clean it. This is found on the hose
that attaches to your propane tank, simply turn the valve all the way
to the right.
Escape any remaining gas. Next turn all the burner knobs to the highest
setting and allow the remaining gas, if any, to escape. Make sure you
have the grill hood in the open position before doing this.
Let the Grill vent for five minute: In order to ensure that the
remaining propane has ventilated properly, leave your grill open and do
not begin to clean it for at least five minutes.
Brush grill bars. Using your grill cleaning brush, firmly brush the
surface of the grill bars in a forwards-backwards motion with the steel
from the brush sweeping across the surface. Once you have brushed the
surface flip each grill bar over and brush the other side.
Saturate with grill cleaner spray and repeat. Using your grill cleaner
spray thoroughly saturate the surface of the grill bars and brush both
sides. Set the grill bars aside after you finish so you can access the
interior of the BBQ to clean it.
Remove burner plates and clean. All gas grills have metal plates which
cover and protect the flame pilots during cooking. These will typically
become covered with ash, and burnt grease and sauce over time. Simply
remove them from the grill and brush them down. After you have brushed
them once, saturate them with the cleaner spray and brush them down
again. Set the plates aside so you can finish cleaning the rest of your
Clean interior of grill. The plates will only catch so much, still
sauce and grease will fall to the bottom of the grill and turn to ash.
Using your grill brush, jar all of this ash free. Douse it in cleaner
spray so it condenses and scoop it up with the paper towels.
Clean grease catch. Many newer gas grills will come with a grease
catching plate. You can usually access these through the rear of the
BBQ. They generally have a small metal handle and will easily slide
out. Remove this grease catch, and brush and clean it thoroughly.
Clean exterior of grill. Using your grill cleaner spray, saturate the
exterior of the grill and wipe it down with the paper towels. Repeat
this process until the exterior is entirely clean.
Reassemble the grill. Now you can put all the pieces back together in your grill and turn the gas valve on again.
I hope the above helps to solve your problem.
