Check your instruction manual, you have probably set off the safety valve in your propane tank. It is set to trigger if there is an open connection, such as turning on the jets when the tank is turned off. You may have to re-connect the tank...careful of course, make sure it's valve is off.

I bet your grill gets no hotter than about 300 with the lid closed?

The tank has a built in safety feature. If a burner is left on when you open the valve on the tank, or turned on too soon immediately after opening the valve on the tank, the flow will be restricted. You need to turn all burners off, close the tank valve, disconnect the tank, reconnect the tank, open the tank valve, waqit a few seconds, open the burner valve and light. You'll get unrestricted flow and much better heat.

SOURCE: Weber Silver Genesis C regulator purging gas after reset process

This could be caused by a couple of problems. First the regulator could be bad, or the tank is getting to hot. Which causes the relief valve to open and release pressure. This will happen when weather outside is hot.

My grill is a Genesis Silver B. The front burner ignites but the middle and back burner will not. I took off the tubes and can't see where anything is plugged or restricted. I can hear gas through the...


I believe your model Weber has a Cross Over Tube Burner , on the left side of the interior of the grill, just above the middle and back burner. If that's clogged or needs replacing, that's more than likely the culprit. As, it won't carry gas to those two burners. It is easily replaceable, if necessary.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it. You can download and print it for future reference.

My grill will no longer lights all three rows. I


My Weber is almost as old as yours and I had a similar problem. I removed the grates and cleaned the inside and checked the holes along the sides of the burners. The burners tend to build up cooking residue along the edge a restrict the gas flow. Try an aggreesive cleaning of the interior.

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!!!!!!

Rear Burner is hotter than the front burner on my Weber Grill


Since the grill is 15 years old, it is probably time to rebuild it. Replace both burners and anything else that is not working properly

Ignite prob


You've got two different things going on.  First - the type of igniter used on your model does wear.  I have had mine for over 10 years and have gone through 3 such igniters - and I grill nearly 3 times per week over the 25 week "grilling" season where I live. Spring for the $12 part and just replace it. The other issue sounds like a clogged cross-over system.  I would remove the burners, including the cross-over bar on the far left side that connects them.  Clean the exterior with a stiff steel/brass brush and the inside with a bottle brush.  Make sure all the holes are clear to allow gas to flow easily - use a wooden tooth-pick to do this to make sure you don't change the size of the holes! Put that baby back together and I think you'll find you'll be good as new!
These grills are great.  Now, if Weber could only fix the uneven heat problem between the left and right side I'd REALLY be happy!  (I wish they would even just admit there IS a problem!)
Good luck and happy grilling.

Uneven heat from burners


I'm experiencing the same problem, the left side has the least heat, and it seems to be getting way worse over time.  Has anyone found a solution for this yet?
