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.

The starter button does not seem to be igniting the propane


Its not, and this is common after about a handful of uses. The igniter is covered with sooot or grease or broken. They sell universal igniters at Sears for like 3 or 4 dollars. Your only other option is to strike long length matches and use those to light it. Be careful , always stand back when lighting grills or any kind off fire. hope this helps.

Second burner will not ignite on Weber grill


Its probably an obstruction in the burner. Take both the burners off and clean them inside and out with a brass brush. You need to clean them both, since the second burner is dependent on the first working properly.

Step by step procedures are in your manual. Go to http://weber.com/help/manuals.aspx to download it.

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.
