Why won't my Weber grill ignite after installing a


Disclaimer- be careful when working with gas. Starters in gas grills are just about novelty anymore. Often, they only light 1/3rd or 1/4th of the burners and they usually stop working within one grilling season. I recommend using a wand lighter. Try to light just one burner but if doesn't light in 5 to 7 seconds, turn the gas off and wait to try again. Incidentally, you are turning the gas on at the tank, right? You should hear it when you turn the burner on.

The problem you're having is related to the OPD Valve in the Propane Tank. But, it is solvable by following the instructions below.


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 that 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 and thanks for choosing FixYa.

You got part of the solution correct. The 5 minute part, but you skipped a couple of steps.

Turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, Slowly (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, turn the burner ON and push the ignitor button. When the burner lights, turn it to it's highest setting. If you have 2-burners, light the second the same way you did the first one. Do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.

If the above didn't solve the problem. you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. As the OPD Valve in the gas tank, permanently locked up the regulator. Since your is a brand new grill with warranty that's enforce, contact the manufacturer for a replacement. Have you proof of Purchase handy, when you call them.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Grill does not get hot. I have a fresh bottle of propane. Hose is not kinked. Grill is maybe 6 - 10 years old.


hi,
When a new or newly filled propane tank is attached to your gas grill, the OPD is usually at its maximum limit position above a tank filled to capacity. Propane may come through the valve too strongly due to the additional pressure of being full and the OPD displacement. The propane tank goes into check and limits gas flow when too much pressure hits the valve. Some grill manufacturers provide instructions for this in the users manuals but most people do not read the manual. Many grillers believe replacement parts are needed and burners, ignitors and regulators get replaced without reason. Depending on how efficient the grill is operating, some grills attached to a tank in check will not ignite and others will light but cannot reach cooking temperatures because the tank has limited the amount of propane released. Sometimes the food will be unable to exceed 200 degrees in temperature because the propane tank is in check.


Gas grill replacement parts are available and are sometimes necessary, low or no gas flow indicates a different typr of repair. Most grillers accept instructions and the problem is corrected in minutes -- but believe it or not I have had a few insist on purchasing replacement parts.
How do I fix grill?
To reset the check valve and get back to cooking on your gas barbecue grill, first
turn everything off. Turn off the grill, the rotisserie, the side burner and the LP gas cylinder tank. Once everything is turned off disconnect the propane tank from the gas grill regulator by unscrewing it or pulling the quick-release on older or retro-fitted propane cylinders. Now turn the grill on. I know, it is dis-connected from the gas tank but we want to ensure that the pressure in the gas lines or any gas in the burners is released. Leave all grill burners in the on position for 3 - 5 minutes before turning them off. Make sure. Most gas grill valves must be pushed in to turn them and if turning is attempted without pushing the knob, they will not turn to the "on" position. With the grill, et al turned off reconnect the propane tank and slowly turn the hand wheel to the open position.
Slowly. The trick here is to turn the hand wheel slowly. Propane in a new or very full tank will be under more pressure, especially with the OPD floating in position. The extra pressure will come through the tank valve stronger. Turn the gas tank slowly allowing small increments of propane to enter the grill.


Once this is complete, you should be able to turn the grill on high and ignite your gas grill burner. Your cooking heat should be back to normal and cooking times decreased. If the problem persists, try this process again to make sure you followed every step. The check valve exists to save your life if there is a leak in any of the gas fittings. Constant check valve issues could imply a gas leak and a visit from your local gas grill service technician may be necessary.
To find a leak, turn the grill valves to the off position and the gas tank valve to the full on position. This should pressurize the gas line. Spray soapy water on all the fittings and look for bubbles just like checking for the leak in a flat tire.
Do not attempt to correct a gas leak on your own. While a check valve error when your gas grill will not get hot or will not ignite is a user education error and an issue corrected by learning about your propane tank, a gas leak should be corrected by a licensed gas service technician. When you are grilling, turn the propane tank on first and then turn on your grill. When you are done cooking, turn the gas tank off first and then turn off the grill valves. The process releases the pressure in the gas grill hose and manifold which allows the gas tank to release pressure by filling these lines. Read the safety features of your gas grill, clean it when necessary and replace used and failing parts. Aside from that be safe, eat well and have fun.

thanks.

Hello,
You may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Turn it back off, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn the valve back on. Light one burner at a time and turn to low before lighting the next. If you are hearing and smelling gas with the tank on but all grill knobs off, don't use the grill. You may have a leaking grill valve, regulator or hose. If you are only smelling gas with the knobs on, it's possible you have a clogged burner or orifice from bug nests, spiderwebs, etc and need to clean it out first. Hope this helps. Douglas

Can you hear or small gas? It's possible to may have turned the propane tank valve on too fast. Close the tank valve, disconnect it, then reconnect it. Slowly turn the tank valve back on and try lighting it again. Hopefully this is your solution, but let us know if you need more assistance.

Take the tank loose from the grill and open all the burners. Then close the burners and reconnect the tank.
SLOWLY open the tank just a little bit and light the burners with a stick lighter. That's what I do. Those new tans have a safety device in them that locks off the gas if the tank tilted even slightly or the gas valves are opened too fast.

My grill won't light, and I don't hear gas running


sounds like a problem with tank valve. Try attaching back to grill. Open valve slowly, if you open to fast valve thinks it is leaking and shuts down. If this doesnt work try a differant tank, buy always open slowly.

Cannot get good flame on the burner of my baby weber grill. I've tried cleaning it checked hose, tank, regulator, seems to have good flow, but low flame only, even when set in high????????


I had this problem with a brand new grill so it wasn't grease in the hose. Due to the new propane regulators you have to turn the propane tank on for at least a minute before turning the grill to light. Let the tank sit in the light position for five seconds and then you light the grill. This will keep air from getting into the intake hose and will keep your gas flame roaring high.

I was only able to get the grill up to 250 degrees before I found this fix posted on the Weber site. It is listed as the number one solution in the FAQ section.

Weber grill doesn't work at all


You sometimes can clog the LP Regulator.  Try removing hose back to nut fitting and creating suction, ( human or even better, a brake pump tool).  Otherwise go to Menards or LP Provider and buy a new regulator and hose, (pretty cheap usually less than $20). Try that and let me know.
