I have an older Genesis grill (15 years) with a regulator that needs to be replaced. Do they make a replacement that fits older model propane tanks and my grill?

You can get a replacement regulator at just about any home improvement store (Home Depot, Lowe's, etc.) There haven't been changes in the size of the ports or thread patterns on regulators or propane tanks in the last 15 years.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I went to Ace and saw the regulators male connector and it was nothing like what I have to fit the propane tank so that drove my question."

What is the life expectancy of a gas grill pressure regulator?

I've been in the propane business 28 years and have found regulators from the 1950's still in use today. Regulator manufacturers tell us they should be replaced after 25 years. It should typically outlast the grill itself, which often require new burners, cooking grids, etc. The hissing sound can just be the flow of gas thru the regulator. If you smell gas however, then you should replace it. If it is affecting the pressure to the burners and not getting hot enough to cook properly, then replace it as well.

Normally, at least on an American grill hose/regulator assembly are a universal fit. And both ends of the hose have female couplings. I would think it would be the same on German Models too. For the connection to the grill, the hose coupling size is 3/8" ID.

Trying to address a leak on my Weber Genesis Silver B Grill, I replaced the hose/regulator. Unfortunately, I still hear gas flowing and smell gas if I do not turn off the propane tank valve completely. ...

Mix some water and detergent together - where ever it bubbles that is where the leak is. Sometimes the thread is worn so get some GAS Tape and undo the thread - wrap tape around re-tighten and then check for leaks again with soapy water

First two burners work fine but when I turn on third burner (back) it cuts out the whole grill on the Weber genesis

This is very common with faulty regulators. The regulator is located on the hose (it is a metal silver disc located at the end of the hose where the hose attaches to the propane tank.)

To replace the hose and regulator, you need to detach the hose from the grill. Your local grill store should have replacement hose and regulators.

Hope this helps.

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.

It sounds like the "O" ring on your regulator is damaged. Inspect/replace it, or change out the regulator. I'd try the "O" ring first. They are readily available at Lowe's/H-Depot/Ace type stores. Take your regulator with you.

My Weber Genesis is 11 years old

Before you go replacing things check them out. If the burner is in poor shape (holes that are rusted out) it needs replaced. You also need to replace the ventura tubes or at least clean them out. One little spider web will cause a lot of problems on a grill burner. You also need to check and see if your regulator is working at the proper pressure

Wont heat over 200 with a new tank -

Don't bother. Regulators are relatively inexpensive. If you go through the trouble (and expense) of having it tested and it needs replacing you still have to by one. If it's okay then you look elsewhere. Replace the regulator, and the manifold then "tune" it by adjusting the air in-lets to a nice blue flame. Happy grilling!

Converting Weber Genesis Silver B from LP to Natural Gas

Hello...I have the same grill and want to do the same conversion...From my research, you need to drill out the three orifices with a size #53 wire gauge drill bit. ( this resizes each orifice to 12000 BTU's each, which the grill is rated at 36000 BTU's).Then remove the existing hose and regulator. Replace the hose with a Quick disconnect compression fitted hose. The NG supply needs to have a pressure regulator installed, with a shutoff and quick disconnect fitting installed. Connect the hoes from the grill to the supply, and fire it up...THIS IS WHAT I INTEND ON DOING TO MY GRILL,BUT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>
