Remove the burner and check the flexible tubes for kinks or blockages. The flexible tubes usually just slip over the backs of the valves. Spiders love to get in there and block them. Also check that the holes in the burners are not clogged. Be careful when reseating the flexible tubes to be sure that they are properly seated on the back of the valves. Failure to properly seat the flexible tubes can cause leakage there, and the gas can ignite at the back of the valves and not reach the burner. Be certain that the replacement burner is designed to use with your grill and the flexible tubes mate properly with the back of the valves.

I changed the all the burners and made sure thy are clean. i get a very small flame on teh burner and they do not get very hot.


If the burners are clean and connected properly you have a problem with the gas regulator. You can get replacement regulators at Lowe's or Home Depot. Don't pay extra for a Weber regulator, they are all the same.

From what you are stating sounds like a back regulator. Call weber they should be able to help you get a new one. Grill regulator should be under warranty and they should send you a new one.

Regulator is not bad, as I stated before new valves are designed to reduce gas flow if valve is opened to fast. This is so if grill catches on fire, the tank will shut itself off, thus propane will stop flowing causing fire to extinguish itself.

Low and intermittent flame of weber Q 220


You can try replacing the regulator to cure the gas flow problem, I believe the ignition is a piezo, if it does not click when you push it or turn it, it most likely needs to be replaced. If it still clicks, then there could be a bad wire or electrode.

Very low flame, like very little gas is getting thru, tank is ful


Okay, what you are dealing with is called "vapor-lock". The way these grills need to be turned off is, close the tank valve first and after the burners go out, then turn the burners off. The way you are doing it is trapping the gas and you are getting a weak flame. Fortunately this is an easy fix. First, light the grill by turning the gas valve open, then turn the burners on to light the grill...as soon as that is done, close the gas valve on the tank then turn the burners off. Repeat this procedure until you get a good flame. If this procedure hasn't fixed the problem after the third time, you need a new regulator and regulators are easy to find in any home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot.

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.

When ever we get a full 20 lb. tank of lp gas, our 3 burner weber grill has a very low flame and it goes out frequently with low heat until it runs for a long time, then it runs normal.


Hello.
It sounds like your regulator is not quite right. Try a different one, or just replace yours. New regulators are inexpensive, and are available at Lowe's/Ace/Similar.
Best regards (and happy grillin'), --W/D--

Low gas flow - low heat


The only way you can fix the low flame, low heat problem, is to remove the grill, take a medium sized paper-clip (staightened out) and clean out each individual hole on the steel burner, flame tube. (I'm sure there's a technical name for it).

Since they (the holes on the flame tube) face up unprotected, directly under the grill cooking surface they tend to get blocked quickly with continous use and certain foods, like pork ribs. Bad design unless all you plan on grilling is hot dogs.

There are about 500 individual holes, so plan on being there a while. Or in other words, do it close to the cooler.

I've been tempted to toss the thing into the woods a bunch of times over the past 2 years I've owned the dumb thing.

Good luck!
