Check to see if the flexible tubes from the burner assembly to the gas valves are clear, undamaged, and completely seated on the burner valve orifices. If these tubes are only partially seated at the valves, gas can leak and ignite under the control panel. If this happens, the control valves can be damaged creating a serious fire hazard. If in doubt, replace the control valves.

Our weber grill is suddenly getting too hot... even with only 1 of the 3 burners turned on it is over 400 degrees... any ideas?


Sounds like the regulator is not controlling the flow of gas. Try this. 1. Turn gas tank and burner control knobs off. 2. Turn tank valve on VERY slow. 3. Open front burner knob on and lite grill. Wait a minute and turn on addition burners, (if needed).

Genesis s310 stainless grill. Does not fully light.


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.

The grill only reaches 200 degrees


PROBLEM
Barbecue temperature only
reaches 250° to 300° in the HIGH
position.

CHECK
The excess flow safety device,
which is part of the barbecue to
cylinder connection, may have
activated.

CURE
To reset the excess flow safety
device turn all burner control knobs
and the cylinder valve OFF.
Disconnect the regulator from the
cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to
HIGH. Wait at least 1 minute. Turn
burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect
the regulator to the cylinder. Turn
cylinder valve on slowly. Refer to
“Lighting Instructions”.

Here is a couple of things to do.

Make sure your tank is filled.
Straighten Fuel hose, so it is not bent or kinked.
Does your front burner light with a match? If it does light then check the Crossover Ignition System.

Also, It could be the way the unit is turn off.

Try following thses steps, this will help to reset the excess flow safety device.
Turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve OFF.
Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to HIGH. Wait at least 1 minute. Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve on slowly. Then go ahead an light your grill.

Low flame on burner...


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.

Gas grill


Probably 1 of 3 things:
Check your LP tank valve at an LP filling station. Make sure both valve and tank are in working order.
Next check for webs or cocoons up around where knob valves go into burners. You may have to remove burners to see into back of valves. Then swab orifice holes with a torch tip cleaner.
Third, a Menards , LP outfitter/station, or grill shop should have a universal replacement rubber gas line and "regulator"(possibly plugged or stuck shut). Sometimes you end up with cheap/bad regulator out of the factory.
Good luck and hope one these helps or does the trick.
