Question about Weber Genesis Silver A Grill

1 Answer

Gas not coming out enough; flame not catching on to other burners

The grill lights, but is very low, and the other burners do not catch. We just filled the propane tank, so not the problem. It seems like the gas is just really low, and won't turn up.

Problem: Low flames on grill, tank is full.

Cause: These newer tanks have a device inside that limits the flow of gas to prevent leaking or accidental discharge of gas from the cylinder. The leak detector mechanism inside the tank shuts off the gas whenever the valve is opened rapidly.

Solution:
Close the tank valve and remove the tank. Check the gas line for ANY object that could cause blockage. Open all valves on the grill to eliminate any pressure whatsoever. Close all valves and reattach tank. SLOWLY open the tank not over 2 turns. Check for leaks. I just open my tank a tiny bit but that is just me.

This late model gas grill service manual has more details on page 13.

My weber grill is not putting out enough heat--both burners ignite, but I can't turn them up to get a higher flame/higher temparature. The grill is about 5 years old. How can I clean the burners to get a...


Hello,

follow the below procedures on how to clean the burners for your grill:

Shut off the gas. It is very important that you turn off the gas valve to your BBQ before you can begin to clean it. This is found on the hose that attaches to your propane tank, simply turn the valve all the way to the right.
Escape any remaining gas. Next turn all the burner knobs to the highest setting and allow the remaining gas, if any, to escape. Make sure you have the grill hood in the open position before doing this.
Let the Grill vent for five minute: In order to ensure that the remaining propane has ventilated properly, leave your grill open and do not begin to clean it for at least five minutes.
Brush grill bars. Using your grill cleaning brush, firmly brush the surface of the grill bars in a forwards-backwards motion with the steel from the brush sweeping across the surface. Once you have brushed the surface flip each grill bar over and brush the other side.
Saturate with grill cleaner spray and repeat. Using your grill cleaner spray thoroughly saturate the surface of the grill bars and brush both sides. Set the grill bars aside after you finish so you can access the interior of the BBQ to clean it.
Remove burner plates and clean. All gas grills have metal plates which cover and protect the flame pilots during cooking. These will typically become covered with ash, and burnt grease and sauce over time. Simply remove them from the grill and brush them down. After you have brushed them once, saturate them with the cleaner spray and brush them down again. Set the plates aside so you can finish cleaning the rest of your grill.
Clean interior of grill. The plates will only catch so much, still sauce and grease will fall to the bottom of the grill and turn to ash. Using your grill brush, jar all of this ash free. Douse it in cleaner spray so it condenses and scoop it up with the paper towels.
Clean grease catch. Many newer gas grills will come with a grease catching plate. You can usually access these through the rear of the BBQ. They generally have a small metal handle and will easily slide out. Remove this grease catch, and brush and clean it thoroughly.
Clean exterior of grill. Using your grill cleaner spray, saturate the exterior of the grill and wipe it down with the paper towels. Repeat this process until the exterior is entirely clean.
Reassemble the grill. Now you can put all the pieces back together in your grill and turn the gas valve on again.
I hope the above helps to solve your problem.

Good luck.

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.

Very low flame, like very little gas is getting thru, tank is ful


Okay, what you are dealing with is called "vapor-lock". The way these grills need to be turned off is, close the tank valve first and after the burners go out, then turn the burners off. The way you are doing it is trapping the gas and you are getting a weak flame. Fortunately this is an easy fix. First, light the grill by turning the gas valve open, then turn the burners on to light the grill...as soon as that is done, close the gas valve on the tank then turn the burners off. Repeat this procedure until you get a good flame. If this procedure hasn't fixed the problem after the third time, you need a new regulator and regulators are easy to find in any home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot.

Gas grill caught fire


The anwer is not the one you want before Labor day cook-outs. Since the unit is under recall, go the manufacture's site, or any site specified in the recall notices, and follow the directions, to get replacement parts for all damaged parts from the fire, as well as the original defective parts. Hopefully you can take the unit in for exchange for a fully assembled one. Be polite but firm in wanting the units assembled gratis.

Yellow flame on the rear of my burner


Yellow is a "reducing" flame meaning low oxygen, whereas blue is an oxidizing flame. There is not enough air mixing with the gas. Clean out the pipes and free the air intake holes on the first stage of the burner assembly.
