Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill
My grill is about five years old with never a problem. Now it wont develop much heatg and if I turn on the second and third burners it has a tendency to blow out. It was this way before I refilled the tank and is again this way with the tank refilled.
I am afraid to fiddle with the flow limiter valve or whatever they call it on the tank unless it is safe to do so. Seems like it is not a tank problem anyway if the problem persists after the tank was refilled and with the spare tank too.
Check temperature with an infrared thermometer. Ask around, as a friend, co-worker or neighbor may have one of these touch free thermometers. If cleaning cob webs out of the gas burners does not increase the temperature, then replacing the gas regulator with a different brand sound reasonable. A pressure check using a proper gauge is the best solution.

My Weber Genesis Silver B is 7 years old. I experienced a similar problem this spring whereby the temperature would not go beyond 300 degrees even after 1/2 hour of pre-heat. One day after pre-heating I accidently dropped the lid from about 3 inches height and noticed the needle on the thermometer jump to over 500 degress. Turns out the problem is the thermometer, not the grill. Now I just give the lid a little smack from about 1 inch to unstick the thermometer.

I find I have the same problem in the winter, but not in the summer. Seems the cold air causes the gas to settle. Try taking the tank off, turn it upside down a few times, and hook it back up.

If you turn on the gas too fast with the newer tan systems, it can make the system think it has a leak and slows the gas flow down. Use proper start up procedures. Call Weber to walk you through them.
