Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill

Weber grill Following a recent move we unpacked our weber grill and found that it does not ignite, either using the ignition switch or a match. Could it be that something came loose during the move? How do we troubleshoot a propane gas grill that does not ignite?

Re: Weber grill

Can you tell if the gas is flowing? Its either dirty or perhaps your regulator got damaged.  I'd check that out.  Above all else, though, be careful!

I have a circa 2003 Weber Q and need to replace the ignitor pushbotton. It is housed in a circular tube on the left side of the grill. How do I remove the old one so a new one can be installed? It seems...

The igniter simply unscrews from front to back and then slides out. There is a lock screw off lock washer behind the head of the igniter.

Weber no longer stock the part, but you can find it at the following link.

In addition, I am including a link to your Owner's Manual which should help you on removing the igniter and installing the new one.

Hope this helps you and Happy Grilling.

My 2 year old weber E-210 gas grill does light. I replaced the igniter, but I do not hear any propane gas being sent to the .I have also tried to manullay light it with a match, and nothing. HELP!

If you have recently bought a new propane tank you may have gotten a bad one. Try taking it back to the store and asking for an exchange. The valves go bad inside the tanks sometimes.

Hard to iqnite Baby Q grill

Do you leave the lid down when you ignite the unit? I had this problem with another brand of grill but when I leave the lid down and ignite the grill, it works perfectly.

That said, call Weber Customer Service and share the problem with them. I've never found a better customer service department than at Weber.
