Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill

1 Answer

Sis bbq will not stay lit more than 20 seconds, even with full tank and proper lighting sequence. I can't see how spider could clog gas flow, so don't know where, how or if to clean...approx 8 year-o

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.

SOURCE: 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>>>

SOURCE: Grill lights but flame is low

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

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: can not light gas grill - Weber 8006 Have done all

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.

GAS FLOW TO THE B/B/Q BURNERS


Three possibilities come to mind. First, is the propane tank full? Second, is the valve on the tank open all the way? Last, is there any obstruction in the lines such as spider webs. Spider webs can even make a furnace not run. This could easily cause low flow issues.

Lighter don't light even if it's a nu ignite checked gas flow even spark is gud. And turned up and down lighter gas flow an that didn't work too


Check the gas vents (holes) on the burner, are they clean and clear? Make sure its getting enough air to igniter. Try turning on the gas and light it using a match. If it stays lit the igniter is not working properly, if it does not, either the valve gas vents are clogged or its not getting enough air to keep burning.

Laars pool heater's burner wont stay lit


Check the burner, the holes may be plugged, especially at the beginning of the season. Same happens to the pilot light tube. Spiders love to make nests inside those small holes clogging everything up.

I have a Webber Q Family BBQ for about 2 - 3years. I noticed say last 6 months that the burners are not working properly and the grill is not hot enough ie take 3 times longer to cook a steak etc. I read...


OK, it sounds to me that when you changed the propane tank, you may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Doing so causes the built-in excess flow valve to check, which only allows a trickle of gas through. Do this: Turn off the gas tank, disconnect it and drain any remaining gas from the grill by opening a valve to a burner. Close the grill valve and then reconnect the tank. Very slowly open the tank valve and try lighting a burner again and see it that solves the problem. Douglas

My BBQ (1 month old) will not reach full heat...it is as if the lpg regulator is partially blocked or something. I have replaced the gas bottle with a spare to no avail. Any thoughts?


Probably spider webs..only takes an hour for a spider to fill your entire venturi tube, resticting gas flow. Most common problem by far..Clean and try again
