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.

Hi, had the same problem. Tried all the suggestions and nothing worked. Then I tried using a protable tank directly attaching to the stove and it worked fine so I checked the hose and it was full of grease. Apparently grease gets sucked into the hose while it is still warm during the shut off process. Must have something to do with the tank being below the grill and air cooling. Webber should address this problem.

Low flame. less than 1/4 inch high. Solution? Tried disconnecting/reconnecting hose to tank. Very little change in flame from low to high.


After you disconnect the hose from the tank, wait 5 minutes before reconnecting it. Then turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open. Light the burner and turn it to it's highest setting. Did the flame height return to normal? I f so, problem solved. If it didn't remove and clean the burner and the venturi valve, Spiders like to build nest in them. If after all of this, the flame height still hasn't returned to normal and you're sure you have a good amount of gas in the tank. You'll need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find one at any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this time, Your problem was solved. Happy Grilling!!

Cannot get high enough flame to cook - used to work beautifully and love the grill - all of a sudden not good flame


Either your burners need cleaning and/or the grill's regulator is locked up or the tank is low on gas.. This occurred when you either changed the tank or turned the tank valve ON. It happens very frequently. To solve the regulator problem, due the following:

Turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow)). Once the valve is fully open, turn the burner ON. light it and turn the flame to the highest setting. Did the flame height return to normal? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem and you've thoroughly cleaned the burner and the venturi valve, then you'll need to replace the grill hose/regulator assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Q200 weber grill getting gas flow but only at low and cannot regulate flame or raise temp for cooking


This sounds like a case of the OPD tank valve on the propane tank has locked up your regulator. In which case, turn the tank OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose. Now, turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is completely open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. If the flame appears to now be normal, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. If all burners have returned to normal height, you solved the problem. Always remember to turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, you may need to replace the regulator/hose assembly, which you can purchase from any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories. Take your old one with your for comparison purposes.

Burner flames don't get hot, like not enough gas.


Try this, Turn off the tank. Disconnect it. Reconnect it. Turn tank valve back on very slowly and then see if you get bigger flame size.

Genesis s310 stainless grill. Does not fully light.


Regulator is not bad, as I stated before new valves are designed to reduce gas flow if valve is opened to fast. This is so if grill catches on fire, the tank will shut itself off, thus propane will stop flowing causing fire to extinguish itself.

My weber Baby Q grill has a low flame.


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.

Low gas flow - low heat


The only way you can fix the low flame, low heat problem, is to remove the grill, take a medium sized paper-clip (staightened out) and clean out each individual hole on the steel burner, flame tube. (I'm sure there's a technical name for it).

Since they (the holes on the flame tube) face up unprotected, directly under the grill cooking surface they tend to get blocked quickly with continous use and certain foods, like pork ribs. Bad design unless all you plan on grilling is hot dogs.

There are about 500 individual holes, so plan on being there a while. Or in other words, do it close to the cooler.

I've been tempted to toss the thing into the woods a bunch of times over the past 2 years I've owned the dumb thing.

Good luck!
