We have a spirit grill with 3 burners. I can light the grill, but burners 1 & 2 don't have a nice line of blue flame like burner 3. Burner 2 is especially bad with orange flames on the right and left...


Are you sure there's adequate gas in the tan? If so do the following:

Disconnect the LP tank from the grill hose. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY,VERY SLOWLY, until it is full open. Light your burners individually and turn to highest flame setting, before lighting the next burner and so on.

If that solved your problem GREAT. Remember to turn the tank on that way in the future.
If it didn't you'll need to remove the burners and clean each one.

Hope this helped to get you back up and grilling again.

Does the grill fail to send out gas when the burners are bad? The burners do need replacing. Does it have an automatic cut off if the burners are bad? All of a sudden one day it would not light (even with...


On some models the gas will shut off automatically if a leak is detected in any connection. Re-check the connections and test with soapy water.

Gas is not moving from tank to Weber silver grill


  1. you need to shut off all the valves and disconnect the tank.
  2. slowly open the tank valve and listen for gas escaping. (DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SMELL FOR THE GAS, THIS COULD PROVE HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH)
  3. you are looking for a valve or connection that is clogged. if gas escapes from the tank the reconnect the tank and check at each connection.
  4. if all connections are complete and functional, your problem may be at the burner itself. Using a push pin, **** the holes in the burner, paying attention to the amount of greasy build up.
  5. If the level of build up is severe, remove the burners completely and soak them in a tub of concentrated dish soap and warm water. DO not use hot or cold water.
  6. remember to shut the tank valve off in between each test cycle.
  7. a clean grill is the key to keeping it functioning properly,
  8. if you are having trouble getting the burners out, spray lighter fluid on the burners holes and light with a fireplace match, or rolled piece of paper.
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

Gas not coming out enough; flame not catching on to other burners


Problem: Low flames on grill, tank is full.

Cause: These newer tanks have a device inside that limits the flow of gas to prevent leaking or accidental discharge of gas from the cylinder. The leak detector mechanism inside the tank shuts off the gas whenever the valve is opened rapidly.

Solution:
Close the tank valve and remove the tank. Check the gas line for ANY object that could cause blockage. Open all valves on the grill to eliminate any pressure whatsoever. Close all valves and reattach tank. SLOWLY open the tank not over 2 turns. Check for leaks. I just open my tank a tiny bit but that is just me.

This late model gas grill service manual has more details on page 13.

Grill will not light


If there is no gas check the tank, If the tank is fine look at the regulator. It has to be flat, because of a valve inside. This is a safety device incase of tipover.

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.

Gas not getting to stove to ingnite


It sounds like you may be "vapor locking" the grill...after you are done cooking on the grill, how do you shut it off? Do you close the tank valve first then close the burner valves or do you turn off the burner valves then shut the gas off at the tank? If you turn the burners off before turning the gas off, you are creating a "vapor-lock" where air gets trapped in the line and you get the sputtering you are talking about.

Try this first, turn the gas on, then light the grill...once it is lit, turn off the gas and wait for the flame to fully extinguish then turn the burners off. Now try to light it again...if it is still sputtering, repeat the procedure above to purge the air out of the line.

If that procedure does not fix your issue after three tries, go get a new line and regulator and install then do that same procedure again. This should fix your issue once and for all.

If you experience any trouble with this, let me know here. Good Luck!
