Question about Weber Q Grill

2 Answers

Weber Q flame burns very low or not at all

My Q also 'burned dry'. Have filled up the tank, connected and reconnected the hose,done all the tricks about slooowwly turning on the tank, etc. I got it to light once but flames were very low and it burned out. Now I can barely get it to hiss and it won't stay lit. How can I tell if it is the regulator, clogged burner tube or neither?

    Thanks. I should have memtioned that I DO have the propane people check/reset that each time just in case.

    I have now been able to get the burner to light tho it is still not smooth and even. I had to let the tank sit open for a bit, then close, then reconnect, then open the grill valve, then open the tank slowly again and I was able to coax enough gas to get it lit. I had to go around the tube with a lighter and 'encourage' the various spots to lite up.

    Are there other safeties in the system (hose, regulator, other) that can be affected by pressure or that cold rush of expanding gas? Also, how do you clean the tube other than blow out? It sure looks like some of the holes are more open than others.

    Thanks and I hope this helps others...

    Do you have a five gallon propane tank? If you do, and you once turned it on too fast, it actuated the safety valve located inside the exit nozzle. Go to a propane dealer and ask him to reset the safety. Most dealers have a device that punches the safety back in place. Until it is reset, opening the valve "slowly" won't work.

I’d try cleaning the burner tubes. Use your brush front to back, not side to side, as this only transfers the grease from one slit to the other. If it’s been a while since you cleaned them, you might try Weber customer service. They sent me a new tube set, free of charge - this was several years ago. I’ve since given that Q away, moved to Florida and bought another Q. Love it.

SOURCE: low flame on burner...

Remove the burner and check the flexible tubes for kinks or blockages. The flexible tubes usually just slip over the backs of the valves. Spiders love to get in there and block them. Also check that the holes in the burners are not clogged. Be careful when reseating the flexible tubes to be sure that they are properly seated on the back of the valves. Failure to properly seat the flexible tubes can cause leakage there, and the gas can ignite at the back of the valves and not reach the burner. Be certain that the replacement burner is designed to use with your grill and the flexible tubes mate properly with the back of the valves.

I have used the Q-series for 2 years. The blue and low flame is absolutely normal. Weber's philiosophy is of avoiding flare ups when grilling for best taste. I love this grill - very easy to clean, uses less gas and makes great food.

I recently purchased a 2007 Keystone Hornet 28bhds. It was winterized, but now I need to empty out the tank to put in fresh water. Where's the drain?


Typically, when your unit is winterized, the tanks and hot water are emptied; at least they should have been. What you need to do is connect a hose like you would to use fresh water and open the valve. Then go to reach faucet in your unit and open them, one at a time until the pink fluid goes clear and then wait another 10-15 seconds before closing. Once all faucets, shower and toilet have been purged of anti freeze, Make Sure the bypass on the hot water heater is opened to let water fill the tank before you turn on the power, for electric, to prevent burning up the heating element. Once all is done, you should be able to do the valve to have water directed into your fresh water tank. For future reference, the drain hose will be at a low point, under the belly with a valve. If the lever is online with the drain hose/tube, the line is open. Make sure the lever is perpendicular (90 degrees) to the line to be closed so you can fill the fresh water tank.

I have 2010 mitsubishi endeavor milage is only 54695 it burns lot of gas


1) you might want to check the fuel filler tube to see if there any rust, resulting in fuel leaking out whenever you filled the tank.
2) check the fuel tank fill-up hose (sill hose) might have a hole- causing fuel leak when filling up the gas tank.
3) you might want to contact your dealer, there was a recall regarding the tank filler pipe and cap problems.

The hose is on the side of the gas cap and it runs down to the bottom of the quarter panel. When I filled the gas tank up, gas comes out of this hose. We just had the fuel pump replaced. Its not leaking...


There are normally two hose lines from the fuel filler that run to the tank. The larger one carries the fuel from the nozzle to the tank. The smaller one is a vent hose that allows vapors to leave the top of the tank while filling. These vapors come back to the nozzle area and can be vented and/or collected by the nozzle depending upon air pollution standards in your area. If your second hose is running to the bottom of the quarter panel, it is probably the vent hose that may not have been reconnected at the top of the tank when the fuel pump was replaced. The fuel running down there is from kickback fuel at the time the pump shuts off. The real problem is that the vent line is open on top of the tank and when the tank is full, that can allow vapors and fuel to escape out of there and it could contact hot exhaust areas - a major fire or explosion hazard. Have this inspected and repaired IMMEDIATELY.

My dewalt D55146 makes loud leaf blower noise, has a burning smell and doesnt build pressure


This compressor is belt driven. When the belt fails the motor will run faster than normal and takes longer to stop turning. When belt is in place and the motor is shut off, the motor will stop almost instantly. If the belt is slipping, you will smell rubber burning (you will need to change the belt anyway). It is my opinion that the belt fails because the cut-off pressure is much to high (200psi). The belt will last longer is the pressure switch cut-out at a normal 125psi. If the discharge tube (tube from pump head to tank or in-tank check valve) or other parts are leaking, it will take much longer to fill and cause over-heating. You can keep track of the condition of the compressor internal parts by knowing how long it takes to fill the tank when new compared to how long it takes now. As parts wear, the unit will take longer to fill. Go to the dealer and time a new unit then test yours against this time period. Do not use an extension cord on this size compressor. Use more hose instead. If you are having trouble filling the tires because of low pressure in the hose, try experiment. Remove the safety valve from the compressor and install a tee fitting. One one port of the tee, reinstall the safety valve. On the second port install a quickconnect fitting. This will give you access to full tank pressure bypassing the regulator to quick fill your tractor tire. This trick is how the tire shop quickly fills a tire. Use caution and do not overfill your tire. Good luck

When gas is lit on grill flame is very small and then burns out


To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

Mike, there can be some pressure problems, but it's not the new tank. However, it does cause the problem and here's how you resolve it.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burn to HIGH.
Does the burner light and the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same
way. Now, do all the burner flames look as the should? If co, you solved the problem. Always
remember to turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly>

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can pick one up at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. It will run you about $30.00 (+/-) .

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

Hi.. have a 300 series weber we bought only last year.. I cannot get the burners to come on together.. I can manually light the inner one but as soon as I try and manually light the outer one... it will...


More than likely, the grill's regulator is malfunctioning. To solve this, turn the LP Gas Tank Valve OFF and disconnect the hose. Turn the grill burners ON, wait 2 minutes and turn them OFF. Reconnect the hose to tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) Once the valve is open all the way, light the inner burner first and turn it to the highest setting. Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the outer burner and turn to HIGH. Do both flame heights now look correct? If so, you solved the problem.

If you are using an insert-able gas canister, instead of a 20Lb LPG Gas tank, do the same thing as above, except remove the canister. Since there will be no hose/regulator assembly involved.

To provide further assistance, in case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it that you can download and print for future reference, if you like.

Hi i purchased a brinkman 2545 5 burner grill already preassembled from walmart when i connected it to propane tank i tried to burn off and it would only heat to 275 degrees i read troubleshooting about...


Glad you saw the troubleshooting part concerning the regulator, but unless you turned the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow) after reconnecting the hose. That's the problem. The hose should remain disconnected for 5 minutes, before reconnecting. As the regulator needs time to reset itself. If that doesn't solve the problem, be sure the propane tank has enough gas to supply all the burners properly.

Hope this helps to get you up and grilling.

Very low flame, can not see it burning bu feel heat


The Gas line Regulator to the tank is probably locked up. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the tank vale is fully open try lighting the burner and turn it to the highest setting. Do the flames look as they should? If so, you solve the problem. If not, are you sure you have enough gas in the tank to sustain the burners on high? If the gas level is Ok, then you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly, as the regulator has gone bad. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.
