This MAY be normal. The alternating current magnetic field interacts with the Earth's magnetic field and CAN cause some vibration or hum.

Gril makes aumming noise when lited

The diaphragm inside the regulator is vibrating against the outwear housing. usually this simply means it has some humidity built up inside and nothing unsafe. tap it with the handle of a screwdriver and that usually stops it. Many customers will replace the regulator because the noise sounds dangerous but it is only annoying.

I have a weber E320 grill and it is making a fairly loud humming sound by the connection of the tank. I just had the tank filled and checked for any leaks. It was determined that the tank is not the issue....

It is the gas flowing through the diaphragm of the regulator. It is common here in South Florida where we have alot of humidity. It is nothing to be concerned. You can also spray soapy water around the regulator fittings if you are concerned of any leaking around the regulator.

Our seven year old grill is making a humming noise. When we turn the temperature up higher, the sound gets louder. What could it be?

There might be some clogged holes on the burners. Take the grill grates off and try cleaning the burners. Sometimes fat and food pieces can drip down and clog the burner openings.

When I turn on the gas and ignite, some of the burners are huming. Why?

Are they humming ot does it sound like a jet engine? If it sounds like a jet engine, the venturi valves on those burners my be clogged and need cleaning. You will have to remove the burners to do this. The Venturi Valves are on each side of the burner on the open end of the burner. They will look like slots.

If in fact they are humming. Turn all the burners OFF and the turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank an open the tnk valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and tunr it to high. Does the flame height look normal. If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights look normal and has the humming stopped? If so, you solved the "humming" problem. If not, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. They are not expensive and you can find one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes. Afte you replace the hose/regulator assembly, open the tank valve as I described above.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks & Happy Grilling!!

The machine moves but the fan does not turn, the motor is humming

Occasionally hair or linen may get caught in the impeller. If that happens, take the top grill off by removing the 2 screws from the top. Make sure that the transformer is unplugged. Remove the debris. Replace the top grill and tighten the 2 screws. This is most likely what is causing the trouble with this automatic pool cleaner.

The second burner on my weber grill makes a humming sound.

Sometimes, under specific atmospheric conditions, the regulator will hum. This is not a problem in most cases, but if you put on a new regulator and hose it may correct the problem.

Regulator hums when in use and barbeque gets excessively hot

You have the bottle valve opened all the way, the gas is rushing through the regulator making the diaphragm vibrate which is the humming noise you are hearing. With the gas flowing like that, you are basically preventing the ability to control temperature so the grill gets way hot. The best thing to do is to open the valve one full turn only and then light the grill...if you can't get it hot enough after that, then open the valve another full should never have to open that valve all the way...if you start having to do that then the bottle is almost empty and needs to refilled.

Noise / vibration from gas regulator

This is on the Weber site, under support. I have been experiencing the same problem and have not used it because of it.

Humming or whistling from the regulator: Outside temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and the gas level within the tank may cause the rubber diaphragm inside the regulator to vibrate, making a humming or whistling sound. Although this sound may be alarming, this is NOT dangerous as long as it is not accompanied by the smell of gas. If the humming sound persists, a change in atmospheric conditions will eventually stop the vibration.
