If you hold down the igniter can you smell the gas coming out of the burners.

Have you disconnected the pipe from the barbie to see if the bottle regulator is actually letting gas through.

Turning the gas on in free air with no one smoking or naked fllames near the pipe is ok

You just crack open the valve a turn or two and you should hear and smell it.

If there is gas coming out og the pipe and not out of the burners then the gas control valve in the barbie is at fault and needs replacing

My back burners wont light but my front two will genesis silver edition


If the Cross Over Tube/Burner is clogged, the ignition flame can't get to the last 2 burners to light them. To check this, light the front 2 burners using the ignitor button and try match lighting the back burners. If they match light, that indicates that the Cross Over Tube is clogged. You will need to remove it to clean it properly. Which can be a chore in itself. Be careful removing it, because if it's rusted, it may break.

Hope this helped you, Kevin and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I installed a new 7509 ignitor on my 13 year old weber genesis gas grill and the gas does not ignite when pushing the ignitor button. I installed the ignitor with the box opening on the bottom and checked...


If the spark you see is in the ignitor box and not at the burner(s), then there's a wire loose somewhere or the ignitor is not grounded properly. Also check to see if the ignitor tips in the grill next to burner(s) are covered with grease. If so, clean them with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol. Check each ignitor wire at each ignitor , make sure they are secure,

I thoroughly cleaned my Weber Genesis Silver A and have a full tank of gas. It won't get hotter than 250-300 degrees. Flames are blue.


You might have air block. When turning off the grill, leave one burner on and shut the tank valve.
When grill cools, close the remaining valve. When restarting the grill, open the tank valve, then the start burner, then the igniter. When first burner is going, open remaining two valves to preheat the grill.

This has worked on two different grills.

Inadequate flame and heat


I'd change the regulator, clean the burners and the surrounding area. Make sure that the air intakes around the burners aren't blocked , plugged..
Also check the gas orifices for cleanliness... outdoor grilles are nutorious for bug hotels... these little critters move in, lay eggs and it can screw up the burners, orifices... I've several times needed to remove orifices to clean the inside of mini spider nests... Look them over closely..

Back burner makes periodic clicking noise and flames increase


This clicking noise would be an indication that the burner is 'burnt out'. Burners have individual ports that release individual flames to create one big flame.

If the burner has a hole in it or the burner's internal baffles are burnt out the burner will make a 'popping' or 'clicking' noise.

Also, heat makes metals expand and when metal expands it makes a clicking noise. The increase in flame could be because the burner has a large hole in it or the holes are increasing in size as they expand, thus throwing a larger flame.

Just a thought.

How do I take my Weber Genesis grill apart to clean the burners? The burners are not heating up properly. The flame is very poor and not hot enough to cook food.


Turn on just one burner, once it is lit, turn on a second burner, if the flame gets lower or goes out, you probably need a new regulator.

Burner won't light


Clean everything up with a wire brush. The tiniest bit of debris in the ignitor area will prevent a spark.
