SOURCE: clogged gas line new grill-

Hello,

Check a few things:

Make sure your hose is not chewed or marred.
Make sure you are turning the unit on and off correctly. Webers are different than other grills to turn on /off. Please check your manual for the instructions on how to do this.
Another thing if this is propane it might be a spider in your grill that is clogging the unit for you.
go to: weber website they will be able to help you.

SOURCE: bought new hose, attached to grill and new bottle

Turn the grill tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 Minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. But, this time, open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion. slow) Until the valve is fully open. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Did all the burners light and do the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help). Remember to always open the tank valve very, very, slowly.

Happy Grilling!!

SOURCE: just bought a new Weber

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first & turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and the fa,e height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner exactly
the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.
Always remember to turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly, as the regulator is locked up. You can pick one up from any home center or hardware store that sell grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem, Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

SOURCE: When I try to light

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.

Why won't my Weber grill ignite after installing a


Disclaimer- be careful when working with gas. Starters in gas grills are just about novelty anymore. Often, they only light 1/3rd or 1/4th of the burners and they usually stop working within one grilling season. I recommend using a wand lighter. Try to light just one burner but if doesn't light in 5 to 7 seconds, turn the gas off and wait to try again. Incidentally, you are turning the gas on at the tank, right? You should hear it when you turn the burner on.

When i push igniter it clicks but burners won't come on and i do not even smell gas , i burped it and turned gas tank upside down once, still won't work, grill is only 5 yrs old.


It sound s like the grill's regulator is locked up from "burping" the tank. Hopefully it's not a permanent lockup. To hopefully solve the problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Turn the burner(s) ON for 1 Minute, Then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes reconnect the hose to the tank and open the valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow
motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? Id so, light the remaining burner the way. Did it light and the
flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help).

If the above didn't solve the problem, the Hose/regulator Assembly needs to be replaced. What happened was this, when you turned the tank upside to "burp" the tank. The OPD Valve shot a hot load of gas to the regulator, when you opened it, as you normally would and permanently locked up the grill's regulator. That "burping" trick used to work with the old style tanks. Won't work with the new ones. You can get a new hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store, that sells grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes. Once you install the new one and connect it to the tank. Open the Valve Very, Very Slowly, until it is fully open. Or you may have the same problem again.

Hope this helped to solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Just bought a new Jenn-Air grill and cant get the temp past 250. Any ideas what i am doing wrong?


First, check that all the gas lines and flame bars are clear of any 'things' or bugs. I had a similar problem with a Webber grill and found out my problem was with the gas bottle. The new Overflow Protection Valve required on LP bottles can closed off or severly slow the flow of gas when the bottle is full and the valve is opened quickly. It will let enough gas flow to light the grill but won't let the fire get high enough to heat the grill up. Turn all the valves off on the grill and gas bottle. Open the gas bottle valve slowly then turn on the grill burner and try lighting it. If the flame is still very low try again or you have to let it burn at the low level until the OPV float drops down and the valve doesn't impede the gas flow. The best way to avoid this in the future is to not fill the gas bottle to the top when you have it refilled. Just ask the LP attendent to not fill it all the way.

Brinkman gas grill won't start. Don't hear clicking sound. Hooked up new gas tank, but no success


Victor, are you sure you're getting gas to the burners after installing the new tank? You can try match lighting them to make sure. But, I suspect, that it's the installation of the new tank, that's causing the problem.

To test my theory, tune the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Ope the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, try lighting the burner that's farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining 3 main burners the same way. Did those burners light and the flame heights looks correct? If, so you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

Need a manul on how to use the rotisserie and the infrared burners on a Better Homes and Garden Grill modle # GSF2818KL.


I must admit, I was thrown by the Better Homes & Gardens Gas Grill. I have been in the grill business for 15 years and that was one I had never heard of. However, the model number looked vaguely familiar. So, with a little research, I discovered that the grill is manufactured by BBQ Tek Enterprises Inc of Canada. They make a lot of look-a-like grills (the model you have strongly resembles a Weber Genesis). In any event it was only sold by Better Homes & Gardens on their website as a Bond Majestic Gas Grill. Ace Hardware, now has the exclusive on it in the USA. I tell you all this, so if you have a warranty issue, BBQ Tek Enterprises is who you will have to contact 1.877.885.8227.

Below is a link to your Owners Manual, that you ca download and print for future reference.

I need to convert my weber genesis b to nat. gas. Have the hose. bought a replacement manifold part and installed but doesnt seem to work. STEVE 269-600-8111


Steve, you also need to change the burner(s) orifices to Natural Gas orifices. Natural gas won't work with Propane orifices.

Good luck and Happy Grilling!!

Grill was moved slightly. Now won't start.


Motion sensor inside spiffy new fangled gas bottle tripped. Shut off the gas and remove the bottle.
Open all gas control valves on the the grill and close them all making sure they are all off. Reconnect the Grill to the gas bottle and crack open the gas slowly about a quarter turn only. Light that puppy and party on.
