SOURCE: weber genesis silver, won't light

The grill can only have one problem by what you are describing look under the unit you will see a black rubber hose going from the regulator to the gas valve (where you turn it on) this valve when turned opens up and allows the gas to flow from the valve to the burrner bar. you will need to see if the gas in going past to the burrner if so shut off the gas remove the burner and clean it out as the ports mybe clogged thus not letting the gas come out properly but back feeding out the back side of the burrner..Let me know what you find

SOURCE: Weber Genesis Gold B Grill Problem

Could be partially clogged burner openings (jets).
Remove the cooking grates and the flavorizer bars. Obtain a BRASS brush (like used to clean white-wall tires) and brush the burner tubes from side to side and up and down along their entire length to remove all corrosion from the jets. Also the cross-over tube.
Before replacing the flavorizer bars and cooking grates, ignite all burner tubes and check to see the flames are all of about equal length and intensity.
If this isn't the problem, check the screens at the right-side ends of the burner tubes to be sure they're not clogged.
If the burner tubes are all clean and some don't ever ignite, the problem could be in the valves/manifold.

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: Gas is not moving from tank to Weber silver grill

  1. you need to shut off all the valves and disconnect the tank.
  2. slowly open the tank valve and listen for gas escaping. (DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SMELL FOR THE GAS, THIS COULD PROVE HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH)
  3. you are looking for a valve or connection that is clogged. if gas escapes from the tank the reconnect the tank and check at each connection.
  4. if all connections are complete and functional, your problem may be at the burner itself. Using a push pin, **** the holes in the burner, paying attention to the amount of greasy build up.
  5. If the level of build up is severe, remove the burners completely and soak them in a tub of concentrated dish soap and warm water. DO not use hot or cold water.
  6. remember to shut the tank valve off in between each test cycle.
  7. a clean grill is the key to keeping it functioning properly,
  8. if you are having trouble getting the burners out, spray lighter fluid on the burners holes and light with a fireplace match, or rolled piece of paper.
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

Are you using the valve-regulator or a conversion hose to a 20lb cylinder? a gas problem is different from an ignition problem. If an ignition issue the piezo module on that model has to have a good ground connection because cast aluminum will not ground at the electrode. make sure wires are tight and secure. Also check the "gap" at the tip of the electrode and adjust for strong blue spark. Most barbecues need the electrode gap adjusted when first installed. if an older model dirt and grease will interrupt the spark so make sure the tip of the electrode and area around it is clean -- burner and collector.

Infared burners ignitor won't work


Mike, have you replaced the battery in the igniter button ye? That's the first place to start troubleshooting. Be sure you install the new battery facing the same direction as the old battery. Also, check the interior contacts of the battery holder for corrosion. If you find any, use a Q-Tip sprayed with a little WD40 to clean it.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, trace the igniter wire from the igniter button to the spark igniter at the burner for damaged wire or a loose connection.

And finally, try match lighting the infrared burners to make sure that they are getting an adequate flow of gas.

Hope this helped you t troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The ignitor does not work. I am able to start a flame by inserting a match and then turning on the burner knob. Either first, middle or back. Is there a AA battery that is used to create a spark for the...


Your grill uses a push button piezo type of igniter. Each time you push the button you should her a click and a an electrical charge should be sent down a wire to an electrode where a spark will jump from the tip of the electrode to the nearest metal surface creating a spark to ignite the gas. The first thing to do is make sure the wire from the electrode to the igniter is actually connected to the igniter. Then make sure the wire is connected to the electrode. Make sure there are no breaks in the wires insualtion that could cause a short. Check the electrode and make sure it is held securly in place and not moving around. Check the ceramic white insualtor for breaks or cracks casuing a short. If all of this is ok, then it is most likely the igniter itself.

Having problems lighting baby q grill. have followed all the procedures. I am on my second regulator. i believe I believe that I have inferior regulators.


If you are getting a strong gas flow when you turn on the valves, then it may not be the regulator. If you are using the ingintor to try and light the grill, it could be a bad ingnitor, a bad or loose wire going to the electrode, or the gap between the electrode and the metal maybe to large to create a spark. If you can light it with a match or a manual butane lighter, then it is probably not the regulator.

Weber gas grill will not ignite


you will probably have to get a new igniter or try to adjust the one you have. there is a little electrode on the igniter that needs to be clean and a certain distance away to work properly.

When i tried to start my weber q after the winter i put the dial to start and pressed the button it clicked but wouldn"t start i had put a new tank on. my e-mail is debbiedowney3@hotmail.com


Do a few things, check that there are no gas leaks (soapy water) can help. if there are no bubbles, at the valve where you attached to the tank. shut the tank off wait 1or 2 minutes then slowly open the LP gas cylinder. try to start the grill. If nothing shut the gas off and check the flame grids for water,spider webs, or holes clogged with fat and filth. Also check the igniter for spark, dead batteries or bad connection at electrode may cause it to fail.

My weber gas grill will not heat up past 300F


Hi John,

I just experienced the same exact problem ! I just bought a brand new Weber E-310 a 3 burner grill.
After I seasoned it up with cooking oil,I turned all the burners to high, opened the tank and clicked electrnic button several times , the grill was on then I went inside, I came out about an half-hour later and it was saying around 275 degrees..
I looked into my manual and there is a gas limit control valve that shuts down gas flow, when it thinks there is too much gas flow.

Sloution;
Turn the propane gas knob to off
Turn the gas grill knobs to Off.
Click the igniter several times to clear out any gas.
Then unscrew the regulator from the tank,( I then blew into the tank hole and regulator),
Screw back on the regulator to the propane tank.
I then clicked igniter again couple of times.
Now open your propane tank.
Then turn on front burner while clicking igniter, this will lite 1st burner.
Then turn 2nd burner on low then to high.
And if you have 3rd burner or more, turn low then to high!

John I did this and my grill went to 600 plus in a few minutes!!

The problem was turning the gas grill knobs on first then opening the tank then lighting...
You have to open propane tank with knobs off, THEN AS SOON AS YOU TURN ON 1ST KNOB, YOU MUST IGNITE ...
