Question about Weber Grilling

1 Answer

Weber Spirit 210 grill. When I connected a newly filled gas tank, there was a hissing sound as soon as I turned on the valve at the gas tank. This was a fairly old tank that I had refilled at an Ace Hardware. They were not helpful when I asked them about it. Just said I would need to dispose of it at Propane Gas dealer located in our city (where they get their propane supply filled). Any other solutions other than disposing of the full tank of gas?

Did you refit the connection to the gas bottle as there could be dirt under the taper or the "O" ring could be missing

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: weber genesis silver, won't light

The grill can only have one problem by what you are describing look under the unit you will see a black rubber hose going from the regulator to the gas valve (where you turn it on) this valve when turned opens up and allows the gas to flow from the valve to the burrner bar. you will need to see if the gas in going past to the burrner if so shut off the gas remove the burner and clean it out as the ports mybe clogged thus not letting the gas come out properly but back feeding out the back side of the burrner..Let me know what you find

SOURCE: weber grill three burner. New tank of propane but

The new style2_bing.gif OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem
IF not you might want to remove the cap (white) on your regulator and try slowly adjusting the regulator, make small adjustments and try the BBQ My Weber if I set the front and back burners to MED I get right at 350 degrees in 60 degree outdoor temps. Adjusting the regulator will take some time to get it right but If it is not your tank it is most likely your regulator out of adjustment

Try checking the regulator, this is the round metal piece connected to the gas line. If this is not level flat the valve inside will not let propane flow through.

When I hook up the propane tank to the grill, I turn the tank on (open the valve) and I get an unusually loud hissing sound and I smell gas. I am afraid to try and light the grill.


You will get a hissing sound and smell gas if you wait too long to light it. You should be ready to light the stove as soon as you open the valve. If it doesn't light within a few seconds, turn off the gas, open the lid and wait a few minutes to try again.

My 2 year old weber E-210 gas grill does light. I replaced the igniter, but I do not hear any propane gas being sent to the .I have also tried to manullay light it with a match, and nothing. HELP!


If you have recently bought a new propane tank you may have gotten a bad one. Try taking it back to the store and asking for an exchange. The valves go bad inside the tanks sometimes.

I have a weber genesis grill. just refilled the tank and connected it. this afternoon my wife smelled gas near the unlit grill. There was also an intermittent hissing sound. could the heat of day 90 plus...


seems like I can always smell a little gas on a freshly filled tank until I use it down a little bit. Also there is a bleed off screw on the valve of the tank Make sure it is tightly closed

The grill seems to get no gas. The guage shows the tanks as empty even though they are not entry. The grill will not light, but no gas seems to be emitted. Weber Spirit


Hi. Your problem has to do with the newer tank technology safety valve. Do this. Turn off the tank and disconnect it from the gas supply line. Then reconnect it and S-l-o-w-l-y turn on the valve. This should solve your problem. From now on always turn the valve slowly. J.

Cant get grill to light. newly filled gas tank.


Hello,
You may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Close it, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn the tank valve back on and only light one burner at a time. If this doesn't solve the problem, let me know by leaving another comment on this post and I'll dig deeper with you. Douglas

Weber spirit does not heat up. Flame is weak.


The new style OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow

Sometimes the burners will not go to high and will not heat up....


Here is something to try if it is LP Gas:

Here is a Tip to fix a grill that not getting hot:
1. Turn the gas valve knob off. then close LP tank valve knob.
2. Unscrew the plastic hose coupling knob from the LP tank. You may hear a slight "hissing" sound as pressure is released this is normal.
3.Wait a minute then screw the coupling knob back on to LP Tank.
4.With lid open.slowly open LP tank valve.
5.Relight the grill the proper way by turning gas valve knob to ON position while turning the igniter knob at the same time.
6.After you are sure the grill is lit preheat the grill for 30 minutes.

This was called purging the line or releasing the air out of the line.

Another thing your orifice could be clogged with spiders or dirt. If it is LP gas check to make sure your hose is not kinked.

Also, it has to shut down the same way every time you use your grill.
