Question about Weber Q Grill

Weber gas grill will not ignite

When you hit the button on the weber grill to start the flame, it will not start. Have to light it manually. It is always covered when not in use. Does anybody know how to fix it? The grill is only 2 years old.

    On solution #2, can you show me a picture where the electrode is on the igniter. I would like to try that first before I purchase the igniter. Thanks

You will probably have to get a new igniter or try to adjust the one you have. there is a little electrode on the igniter that needs to be clean and a certain distance away to work properly.

    after some more research it looks like weber's igniters look like this
    it doesn't appear that there is any adjustment but you can verify that there is no grease on the tip and that it is sparking.

Looks like it's the igniter that needs to get fixed. See this article here: http://bbq.about.com/od/gasgrills/a/aa081206a.htm

Are you using the valve-regulator or a conversion hose to a 20lb cylinder? a gas problem is different from an ignition problem. If an ignition issue the piezo module on that model has to have a good ground connection because cast aluminum will not ground at the electrode. make sure wires are tight and secure. Also check the "gap" at the tip of the electrode and adjust for strong blue spark. Most barbecues need the electrode gap adjusted when first installed. if an older model dirt and grease will interrupt the spark so make sure the tip of the electrode and area around it is clean -- burner and collector.

When I try to light my brand new Q300, it won't ignite. I can hear that the tank is on and gas is being sent to the grill. However, it doesn't light. When I shut the grill off and the gas tank...


What you have is delayed ignition. It's being caused by the gas regulator. It is solvable, though.

Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

Once the valve is fully open, light 1 burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and does th eflame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner the identical same way. Now, to both flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly. And always light the burners with the Lid/Hood Open.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly. Since your grill is brand new, the Hose/Regulator Assembly will be covered under Warranty. Have your Proof of Purchase handy and call Weber 1-800-446-1071. Also, if you haven't done so already, register your grill before calling http://help.weber.com/register/ even if you don't need a new Hose/Regulator Assembly.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem.

I have provided 2 links for you. One is the Assembly Manual for the Genesis B 330

Don't worry, you'll be grilling in no time, if you follow these instructions:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.

2. Disconnect the grill's hose from the propane tank and wait 5 minutes.

3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank's gas valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow).

Once the valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burner and turn it to HIGH. Do both flame heights look normal?
If so, you solve the problem! Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

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

Hi, I have just bought a Weber 100 BBQ. I have a


You have a couple of questions. In order: 1. Flame may not be visible because it burns very clean. 2. When they say 'turn gas off', they actually mean 'turn gas tank off'. 3. It's not necessary to remove the tank after every use. Just make sure the gas valve is off and the entire grill and tank are covered. I do remove the tank, and store it in an outdoor shed during the winter.

Can not adjust flame.


It sounds like the grill just needs a good cleaning, plus when you do clean it check that the burner tubes and orfaces are free of any debris.
The orface is a tiny hole inside a small brass threaded insert where the gas blows through into the burner tubes, it is very critical that this is clear as well as the burner tubes.

Gas does not flow when you turn on gas knob when you turn on the gas valve on the tank and then turn the knob for gas to get to the grill, just before you hit the ignighter no gas comes out


make sure there isn't a designated burner for lighting. sometimes there will only be 1 burner the grill will light. start with all them off, turn on the tank. the grill will have a little picture of a flame next to the burner knob. turn it to high and try lighting

When i tried to start my weber q after the winter i put the dial to start and pressed the button it clicked but wouldn"t start i had put a new tank on. my e-mail is debbiedowney3@hotmail.com


Do a few things, check that there are no gas leaks (soapy water) can help. if there are no bubbles, at the valve where you attached to the tank. shut the tank off wait 1or 2 minutes then slowly open the LP gas cylinder. try to start the grill. If nothing shut the gas off and check the flame grids for water,spider webs, or holes clogged with fat and filth. Also check the igniter for spark, dead batteries or bad connection at electrode may cause it to fail.

I can smell the gas coming through. The igniter, ignites a small flame at the right end, but that is all. The flame does not light the burners. I did look at the burners, they look fine. Could there be...


It's either the flame sensor or the gas valve.

The sensor senses flame and sends signal to the valve, the valve then sends gas through the burner/s.

If it's a thermocouple (looks like thisbefore installed) http://furnaceparts.com/eshop/products/thermocouple.jpg
then replace the thermocouple.
It sits right in the flame pattern and they usually cost less than ten bucks.
