Question about Weber Q Grill
I am running the Weber Q off of a 20 lb propane can with the adapter hose. It has worked fine for most of a tank. All of a sudden it stopped putting out full heat. One clue might be that if I turn suddenly from low to high there is a brief surge of gas that subsides after a second or so. It seems to me that this might be a problem with flow in the regulator. Could it be dirty? Defective? How do I fix it? Have small Q grill and used it once this season. Flames seemed a little low. Tonight they are so low they barely stay lit. ONlyby turning the perimeter flame off can I get enough heat to cook in the middle. I apparently have gas but no pressure or? Thanks Mike
Yeah, it's the regulator. Fortunately, they're cheap and easy to replace!
You can look on line for part number 80012. Or you can remove yours and take it to Home Depot or Lowe's in the outdoor cooking area and match up a replacement. <--- they're all the same... just make sure the compression fitting (the brass end) is the same size.
The only other thing I could recommend is this... Turn the LP bottle completely off. Then completely remove the big plastic knurled knob from the tank. Now replace the knob back onto the tank (all the way and make sure it's tight). Then S L O W L Y turn the gas back on. Now try your pit. If you get the same flame, it's the regulator. If you get full flame, you just reset the safety device inside the tank.
I'm betting regulator. Good luck and happy cookin'!
