Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill
Won't stay lit more than 20 seconds, even with full tank and proper lighting sequence. It lights up, then slowly goes out after a few seconds... Approx 8 years old. Flavour bars need replacing. Symptomatic of gas-flow problem, (like spider-web clogged lines), but I do not see where they could get in or how or where to clean them out? The mesh screening is still intact, so that's not the issue.

SOURCE: No flame...no gas flow
Take the tank back off and open all the valves on the cooker. Close all the valves on the cooker. Put the tank back on the cooker. Open the tank just barely. Light the burners. The valve cannot be turned wide open on the newer grills.

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>>>

Hello. Are you frustrated because your gas grill doesn't get hot enough lately. The problem you are having indicates that you have to go through a procedure called "RESETTING THE REGULATOR". Follow these easy steps:
1. Turn the burners on for one full minute and then off.
2. Next, remove the regulator and the hose from the tank.
3. Then reconnect the tank to the regulator and hose.
4. And very slowly open the tank.
5. Last step is to fire up the burners and start cooking with you new hot flame.
The problem began the first time you opened the valve on the tank too quickly. In the future, always turn the tank valve on s-l-o-w-l-y to prevent this problem.. Joe

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.

Assuming that you have fuel and spark, check the following.
Mine did this, it was spiders, web and egg debris in the air inlet tube. It does not take much dirt to kill the ignition process.
If you have the perforated and hinged black plastic air inlet covers open them up and clean out the dirt. Reinstall the covers when done.
