You'll need to replace the igniter wire switch assembly. you can usually find them at the hardware store pretty cheap. follow the instructions and make sure the wire is properly shielded from the heat.

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 Q grill CAUGHT ON FIRE TONIGHT !! RIDICULOUS ! It almost burned our apartment down - WTF ????


Not exactly sure what your question is, but there are a several reasons as to how and why a gas grill will catch on fire. And almost all the reasons, boil down to one thing - a lack of proper routine maintenance (i.e. Regular and frequent cleaning of the grill, checking the grill hose and regulator for leaks, keeping the grill a minimum of 6' from exterior walls when in use and turning OFF the gas tank when not in use).

I'm truly sorry, you had such a frightening experience, but in 86% of the cases, operator error is the cause.

Grill caught fire & went to 700 degrees


It should be OK. Just make sure you get ALL the greese cleaned out of the grill before you fire it up

The hose to the regulator caught fire and burnt off. I bought a regulator with hose, but it doesn't seem to attach.


Keep in mind that LPG valve threads are reversed (left to tighten and right to loosen). In addition tank valve and regulator fittings change causing confusion and problems.

The regulator is damaged. This is the little round between the hose connected to your knob adjustment and the Gas tank. This one is not expensive. it costs less than 30 bucks. Good Luck.
