SOURCE: Weber Q 200 goes out after lighting

Using a larger size bottle w/converter hose?  If so, its probably a regulator issue.  I have had same problem for over three years.  If you don't open the gas very slowly it trips a safety which lowers the pressure to nada.  He'll need to shut it down and reconnect following the instructions available on the Weber website.  Mine still only resets 50 percent of my attempts.  Great grill when it works, but what a pain.

SOURCE: Weber Silver Genesis C regulator purging gas after reset process

This could be caused by a couple of problems. First the regulator could be bad, or the tank is getting to hot. Which causes the relief valve to open and release pressure. This will happen when weather outside is hot.

SOURCE: Converting Weber from LP to Natural Gas

On the weber model you need to purchase the natural gas model. It will cost you alot more to buy all parts needed to convert. Weber doesnt want you to convert do to safety reasons. This is why they will only tell you you can't convert. Buy the right grill and save yourself a headache.

SOURCE: New Tank won't light Weber Grill

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.

SOURCE: Gas is not moving from tank to Weber silver grill

  1. you need to shut off all the valves and disconnect the tank.
  2. slowly open the tank valve and listen for gas escaping. (DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SMELL FOR THE GAS, THIS COULD PROVE HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH)
  3. you are looking for a valve or connection that is clogged. if gas escapes from the tank the reconnect the tank and check at each connection.
  4. if all connections are complete and functional, your problem may be at the burner itself. Using a push pin, **** the holes in the burner, paying attention to the amount of greasy build up.
  5. If the level of build up is severe, remove the burners completely and soak them in a tub of concentrated dish soap and warm water. DO not use hot or cold water.
  6. remember to shut the tank valve off in between each test cycle.
  7. a clean grill is the key to keeping it functioning properly,
  8. if you are having trouble getting the burners out, spray lighter fluid on the burners holes and light with a fireplace match, or rolled piece of paper.
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

I,m unable to start the grill. new gas bottle, every thing attached. It seems like there is no gas flow as I can't even start with a match. Can the gs regulator get stuck so there is no flow?


Hi ircatlin...

ONLY TO THE FOLLOWING IN AN OPEN AREA AWAY FROM FLAMES/FIRE/IGNITION SOURCES.
To answer your question if the gas regulator can get stuck...the answer is YES.

Check to make sure gas is getting thru the regulator...to do this disconnect the hose going to the burner controls...turn on the gas at the tank and listen and smell for gas coming out...if there is no gas coming out, you can sometimes tap lightly the gas regulator and it will free the sticking valve inside and let the gas flow...if the tapping does not work, the replace your regulator as it is faulty.
Please take time to rate me

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.

My gas grill will not stay lit and it is almost brand new


Your regulator may be going bad, try replacing the regulator and hose, easy to do and inexpensive. Of course, check the level of propane in the tank first.

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

My weber gas go anywhere grill is alot more flame on the left side of the grill and the right side of the grill has very low fire even when turned on to high? p.s. the grill is brand new


Even a brand new BBQ makes a happy home for spiders. :)

1. Pull out the burners. Use a can of air or the equivalent to clean them out.

2. Disconnect the regulator from the feed hoses(if possible) Blow the hoses out. Check the regulator for obstruction (even a little bit of fluff, or a tiny spiderweb makes a huge difference) There will be a screen on one side of the regulator.

3. Reconnect and ensure connections are leak free. A soap solution sprayed on joints works well for this. Clean up soap solution thoroughly as some solutions can degrade piping.

***N.B. Do not apply a greater deal of air pressure to the regulator itself - it is rated for 1 - 5 PSI _AT MOST_ ****

Converting Weber Genesis Silver B from LP to Natural Gas


Hello...I have the same grill and want to do the same conversion...From my research, you need to drill out the three orifices with a size #53 wire gauge drill bit. ( this resizes each orifice to 12000 BTU's each, which the grill is rated at 36000 BTU's).Then remove the existing hose and regulator. Replace the hose with a Quick disconnect compression fitted hose. The NG supply needs to have a pressure regulator installed, with a shutoff and quick disconnect fitting installed. Connect the hoes from the grill to the supply, and fire it up...THIS IS WHAT I INTEND ON DOING TO MY GRILL,BUT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>

Inconsistent heat problems Weber Grill


If your propane gas delivery system is equipped with a pressure regulator, check it or replace it. If no regulator, check the following:

* The gas jets for any obstructions, including carbon build up (they can be cleaned with an automotive fuel injector or carburetor cleaner with a lttle help from a brush bristle - do not try and use a drill or other mechanical means)

* The gas connections, and make sure they are all tight

* The gas manifold(s) to be sure they aren't partially obstructed with insect nests, especially cocoons

* The burner(s) to be sure they are clean and that the flame is even

My weber gas grill will not heat up past 300F


Hi John,

I just experienced the same exact problem ! I just bought a brand new Weber E-310 a 3 burner grill.
After I seasoned it up with cooking oil,I turned all the burners to high, opened the tank and clicked electrnic button several times , the grill was on then I went inside, I came out about an half-hour later and it was saying around 275 degrees..
I looked into my manual and there is a gas limit control valve that shuts down gas flow, when it thinks there is too much gas flow.

Sloution;
Turn the propane gas knob to off
Turn the gas grill knobs to Off.
Click the igniter several times to clear out any gas.
Then unscrew the regulator from the tank,( I then blew into the tank hole and regulator),
Screw back on the regulator to the propane tank.
I then clicked igniter again couple of times.
Now open your propane tank.
Then turn on front burner while clicking igniter, this will lite 1st burner.
Then turn 2nd burner on low then to high.
And if you have 3rd burner or more, turn low then to high!

John I did this and my grill went to 600 plus in a few minutes!!

The problem was turning the gas grill knobs on first then opening the tank then lighting...
You have to open propane tank with knobs off, THEN AS SOON AS YOU TURN ON 1ST KNOB, YOU MUST IGNITE ...

Weber grill doesn't work at all


You sometimes can clog the LP Regulator.  Try removing hose back to nut fitting and creating suction, ( human or even better, a brake pump tool).  Otherwise go to Menards or LP Provider and buy a new regulator and hose, (pretty cheap usually less than $20). Try that and let me know.
