Question about Weber Grilling

1 Answer

My grill does not come up to the proper temperature. There is nothing that seems to restrict the gas flow. There is a sputter sounds so I think the gas feed is restricted. Can you help or suggest what may be wrong?

Check to see if the fuel hose is bent or kinked.
• Make sure the grill area is clear of dust.
• Make sure the burner and orifice are clean.
• Check for spiders and insects.
• The regulator has a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a leak. This safety device can be triggered without a gas leak. To reset the safety device, turn all burners "OFF" and close the Liquid Propane cylinder valve. Disconnect the regulator from the Liquid Propane cylinder and wait 1 minute. Reconnect the regulator to the Liquid Propane cylinder and slowly open the valve until the valve is fully open. Light all burners and observe the temperature.

The oven sounds like it is sputtering the whole time it is preheating and baking something once it reaches it's temperature. Oven is working, just making this sound. Although, it does seems to take a...

While you didnt say if your oven is heated by gas or electric i am going to assume its gas and the cause of that sputtering sound is due to weak ingiter that is not fully opening the gas valve yet its just opening it a wee bit cauing it to basically starve for gas flow and sputtering all the time the gas is flowing. By replacing the igniter the gas will flow properly and stong and thusly the noise will cease and it will heat quickly.

If its electric heated let me know and i will figure why its sputtering

My Uniflame grill may have a clog somewhere through the fuel delivery system, or at the the tank connection, how would I be able to find the culprit?

Hi boltbucrayfa...
I think your culprit is the gas regulator valve...
If it is not working properly then it will not deliver the proper amount of gas to the burners.
Check all your burners to make sure they are not plugged...
The when you are outside away from Flames and ignition sources.
Remove the hose from the the gas to the grill (you have the hose off the grill) and listen to the flow of gas...if it is very low then there is your problem.
You can shut off the flow of gas, then tap the gas regulator on the sides, top and bottom lightly with a hammer and then turn back on the gas to see if the gas flow increased...if it did, then shut off the gas and rehook up the gas line to the grill..and your good to go grilling again.
Some gas regulators have an adjustment under the removable cap.
If the gas flow did not increase, the replace the gas regulator
Please take time to rate me

Won't light properly or vary the flame

You're probably turning the LP tank valve on too fast. Close the tank valve, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn on the tank valve. Make sure all your grill knobs are closed. Light one at a time and turn to low setting. After they are all lit, slowly turn up the heat on each as needed. Hope this helps. Douglas

I can't get the grill to light....can you help me?

If you have 20lb gas tank, you could try opening the bottle really slowly. The newer tanks are equipped with a device called OPD, which means, overfill protection device, so when you take it to be refilled the filling station can't over fill it. However, if you open the tank too fast, it will cause this device to restrict the gas flow to the grill.

Gas does not flow properly to burners. Bled gas container. No impact. What else can I do?

try opening the tank really slowly. if you open the valve on the tank too quickly the OPD (overfill protection devise) will restrict the gas flow to the burners.

Have a Weber Genesis Silver. Gas is not flowing.

take off the grate[s] and the plate that covers the burner, find where the gas supply goes into the burner - use a compressed air source with a nozzle and blow out the burner and orifice - spiders and sometimes mud daubers love little spaces like this and will build a nest in 'em - even the slightest restriction will cause major headaches

Troubleshooting amana gas grill

From a tag that came with the grill -

"To ensure proper gas flow, all of the burner control valves MUST be off before opening the LP cas cylinder valve.

When turning on the LP gas cylinder valve, make sure to open the valve SLOWLY two complete turns to ensure proper gas flow.

All LP tanks now come equipped with a leak detection device internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly it will restrict the gas supply to the appliance. Opening the valve rapidly may simulate a gas leak, causing the safety device to activate, restricting gas flow and causing low flames or poor ignition.

Opening the valve slowly will insure this safety feature is not falsely triggered."

I would guess you triggered the tank failsafe inadvertently.

Low burners, low heat

If you turn on the gas too fast with the newer tan systems, it can make the system think it has a leak and slows the gas flow down. Use proper start up procedures. Call Weber to walk you through them.
