Remove the grates and burner heat deflectors. There are 4 screws on the knob panel, 2 on the left and 2 on the right. Remove the screws and pull back about a inch or two. I found it helpful to open all the doors a bit to rest the panel on them. The burners should remove easily once this is done. Replace the burner tubes and be sure tubes have holes facing up on the one side for correct heat distribution. When placing the knob panel back on, make sure that burner tubes go onto the gas control knob correctly. Replace screws on the knob panel.

How to replace burners


Replacing the burners on any Ducane Gas Grill is not an easy task. As the control panel has to be dismantled to accomplish it. With that in mind, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual. The section Annual Maintenance starting on page 21, will be a big help to yo in removing the old burners and installing the new ones.

The burners do not light consistenly. I can see the igniter spark and the fuel supply is good. If the igniter does work the main burners may not light until I creat a draft then the burner takes off.


It sounds as if, the burners need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. As do the Venturi valves on the open end of each burner. Spiders like to build nests in the Venturi openings and clog them up. It's a prat of Routine Maintenance, takes a little time to perform, but is not difficult to do. It does require removing the burner knobs and the control panel cover (which was a poor design by Ducane/Weber)

To help make this a little easier for you, I have included a link to a Ducane Stainless Steel Model Grill that will show you how to remove the burners. Pay particular attention to the Annual Maintenance section starting on page 21. You can download and print this manual for future reference.

Install replacement burners


You've got a job ahead of you! Duncane is the only grill on the market that I know of, that requires the removal of the Control Panel to remove and/or install new burners.

Here is a link to the Owners Manual. What you need to know starts on page 21 (Annual Maintenance). Good luck.

How do I remove the old burners to replace with new?


Should be as easy as removing the screws at the ends of the tubes and sliding the tubes away from you and putting the new ones in like you took out the old ones.

Steps in replacing 5 burners on Ducane burner mod 30400042


First calll Weber to get your replacement burners for free. There is a five year warranty on this model which is a little over 4 years old. I know this because I just received them from Weber for free.

Remove the grates and burner heat deflectors. There are 4 screws on the knob panel, 2 on the left and 2 on the right. Remove the screws and pull back about a inch or two. I found it helpful to open all the doors a bit to rest the panel on them. The burners should remove easily once this is done. Replace the burner tubes and be sure tubes have holes facing up on the one side for correct heat distribution. When placing the knob panel back on, make sure that burner tubes go onto the gas control knob correctly. Replace screws on the knob panel.

Need to replace burner tubes on a Ducane grill. How do you do this? How do you get the old one off? I don't have a manual anymore.


First call Weber to receive the Warrenty burners for free. Have model and serial numbers ready. They can be found on one of the doors. Here is what I did for my Ducane model 30400042.
