SOURCE: gas grill

If you are sure that gas is coming out of the burner(s) at a roughly normal rate, then the only way it will not light is if you have a bad tank of propane. If you mean it lights but wont stay on, then the safety thermocouples (need to be hot to allow gas to flow) may be faulty - more likely somehow out of position - they can be gently bent back into place but not more than a couple of times. (the way to check if these are the problem is to make sure you are lighting the grill with the control knob in the "light" position - usually held in for a few seconds - this will bypass the thermocouples) If the problem is that the autostart feature is not working, then please post back with details and we can hopefully help identify the problem. Hope this helps - please post again with more info if not :)

SOURCE: Converting Weber from LP to Natural Gas

On the weber model you need to purchase the natural gas model. It will cost you alot more to buy all parts needed to convert. Weber doesnt want you to convert do to safety reasons. This is why they will only tell you you can't convert. Buy the right grill and save yourself a headache.

SOURCE: converting weber natural gas grill to LP Gas

Hello,
You will need to replace the orifices and install a propane regulator and hose. Plus, of course, you'll need to buy a 20# cylinder. I looked up your grill serial # and found a parts explosion for your grill. Here is the link: http://www.weber.com/PublicSchematic/view.aspx?model=6821001

If you click on the "additional parts" link, they have the conversion kits listed, but none of them are available anymore. As a propane guy, your best bet is to take it to a local propane co and have them convert it to propane for you. They will drill out your existing orifices and install spuds, and then re-drill smaller holes for the appropriate BTU rating for each burner. Then they can install the regulator and hose and even sell you a new and full 20# cylinder. Call around first and see which one can help you, as not all have serviceman that can do this particular job. Hope this helps. Douglas

SOURCE: I have a Weber Silver

Weber stopped selling conversion kits due to some legal action in 2008. There are no longer kits available. What you would have to do to covert it is order a replacement gas valve for the NG version of your grill just to get the orifices. Then you have to replace the LP regulator with a NG regulator. Typically most NG grills do NOT have a regulator but local building codes will require a NG regulator and a different gas line hose.
Conversion of a BBQ gas valve to NG is a matter of drilling out the orifice to a larger hole in an LP orifice.
You will not find anyone that will perform this conversion for you due to legal liabilites.
If you want to convert it... you will either have to order the whole gas control valve for NG or drill out the orifices yourself in your current gas valve hoping your got the orifice hole size correct when you drilled it. Mind you all liability for doing this lies solely with you.

I just bought a propane Weber Summit 660 bbq grill and really want to convert it to natural gas, is there any one out there who has done it even though Weber doesn't recommend it and if so how did you do...


weber does not permit this anymore because the weber family sold the company and models are being fabricated overseas where quality control is unreliable. however, converting the models is no more difficult today than it was 10 years ago; we convert webers to NG and to LP all the time. Simply change the orifices and the regulator with orifices drilled based on the BTU for the pressure of the NG regulator. We stock the parts for this and it takes about 10 minutes to convert.

Hi there, I have a Weber Q 300 Natural Gas. I have an outdoor gas outlet which have been capped at the end. I don't know how to connect it to my Weber. Do I need a gas fitter to come out? Please help.


Yes, you will need a gas fitter or gas technician to complete the hookup, because the gas line has been capped and you can be sure whether or not it's still an active line. In addition, you will also need (if you don't have it already) a 12' long, rubber, quick disconnect hose the runs from the pipe to the grill (this is a Code Requirement), as well as a gas line line shutoff valve on the end of that exposed pipe, as well as all the necessary pipe fittings.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Bought a weber genesis 320 Problem with the Weber Genesis E-320 Propane Grill bought a weber genesis 320 in US and need to replace the hose / regulator that it fits to German LP gas cylinders. Which...


Normally, at least on an American grill hose/regulator assembly are a universal fit. And both ends of the hose have female couplings. I would think it would be the same on German Models too. For the connection to the grill, the hose coupling size is 3/8" ID.

I'm going to hook up the grill to our house propane gas line and not use a propane tank. Will I need a special hook up device? Where is the connection on the grill? Thank you. Frank...


Yes Frank, you will need some specialty parts. The gas line from your tank will need a shut off valve near the grill. You cannot hard pipe the line to the grill. Code requires that your use a 12' long, rubber, Quick Disconnect Gas Hose. They are normally sold as a kit and should have all the necessary fittings. You will need to remove the grill's hose/regulator assembly, as it won't be necessary any more. That is, unless you have a high pressure propane system. Then you will need a regulator on the gas line coming from the tank to the grill. If that is the case, it should have the capacity to carry the maximum Btu output of your grill, if all the burners where ON and at their highest setting, at the same time. And finally, and probably the most important, have the knowledge and skill necessary to properly hookup an outdoor gas appliance. Or have a good friend that is a Certified Gas Technician to help you. Of course, your propane provider would probably do it for you. Which, might be money well spent.

Hope it all works out for you and Happy Grilling!!

What is the NATURAL gas flow rating CFM for a Weber Genesis S-330 grill at 60,000 BTU max? I will be using 1/2" black pipe 40ft long run to the grill off a 3/4" main line - ok? Thanks...Dennis


Dennis, it's not the CFM you need to know, it's the water column inch that is required. In this case it's 7 inches. Also, if you're burying this 40' run, you can't use black iron pipe. A less labor intensive and perhaps less expensive way to go is 1/2" Flexible Copper Refrigerant Tubing. It's comes in 50' & 100 ' roles from your local home center. Even if you're not burying the line, it's a better way to go, as you'll have fewer fittings that could be prone to leaking. I

n addition, you'll also need and an inline gas shut off valve at the connection before the grill and a 12' long quick disconnect gas hose, that connects to the copper pipe connection at the shut off valve and then to the grill. This is a code requirement.

Now, with all this said, I hope you have a Genesis S-330 Natural Gas Grill. Because, the Genesis Propane Grills ARE NOT convertible to Natural Gas. And Genesis Natural Grills ARE NOT convertible to Propane.

Hope all this helped you make the right decisions. Have a great day and Happy Grilling!

My Weber gas grill is less than a year old. The


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. It will work o.k. then

Converting Weber Genesis Silver B from LP to Natural Gas


Hello...I have the same grill and want to do the same conversion...From my research, you need to drill out the three orifices with a size #53 wire gauge drill bit. ( this resizes each orifice to 12000 BTU's each, which the grill is rated at 36000 BTU's).Then remove the existing hose and regulator. Replace the hose with a Quick disconnect compression fitted hose. The NG supply needs to have a pressure regulator installed, with a shutoff and quick disconnect fitting installed. Connect the hoes from the grill to the supply, and fire it up...THIS IS WHAT I INTEND ON DOING TO MY GRILL,BUT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>
