Question about Weber Q300 Grill
Hi on my Q300 the gas flow is tremendous and the BBQ is overheating. Initially it started on the large dial two ring burner, but now is also on the single centre burner also. The temperature dials don't really have much effect, I.e., it's either all or nothing. Does this indicate the regulator at the bottle is at fault or can it be at the BBQ end?

You're probably turning the LP tank valve on too fast. Close the tank valve, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn on the tank valve. Make sure all your grill knobs are closed. Light one at a time and turn to low setting. After they are all lit, slowly turn up the heat on each as needed. Hope this helps. Douglas

Testimonial: "Thanks, it worked!"
If you just installed a new, full tank of propane and turned it on and the burners wouldn't light.
Turn the tank off, disconnect from the grill hose (you'l hear a whooshing sound and smell gas, but that's alright). Wait several minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the gas valve on very very slowly, until it's full open. Now, try lighting your grill.
Remember, you will need to turn the tank valve on very very slowly every time you change tanks or turn the tank off after grilling.
What happened was this ... When you turned the tank on quickly it locked up the grill's gas regulator. Doing what suggested usually solves the problem. Oh, one other thing ... be sure your tank is not empty. The grill you have uses a lot of gas.

SOURCE: Sometimes Q100 will not light
Nope, the regulator is not the problem. It's the LP tank regulator. The new OPD heads on the tanks are designed to prevent over filling. All 20lb cyclinders now have them. But, it's easy to solve.
Turn off the tank, disconnect the s/regulator from the tank, wait 5 minutes. Then reattach the hose/regulator to the tank and turn the tank on very, very slowly, until it is completely open. Now, try lighting the burners one at a time and turn them up to high. That should have solved your problem, by allowing the regulator to reset itself.
Just remember to always turn the tank on very, very slowly after turning the tank valve off each time.

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.
