Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill

Open Question

My weber grill clicks on but won't get hot enough, It stays at a very low temperature no matter the setting. Also this seems to be an intermittent problem as it has worked normally on two occasions an now reverts back to the same problem. Do I need a new burner or new grill?

I bet your grill gets no hotter than about 300 with the lid closed?

The tank has a built in safety feature. If a burner is left on when you open the valve on the tank, or turned on too soon immediately after opening the valve on the tank, the flow will be restricted. You need to turn all burners off, close the tank valve, disconnect the tank, reconnect the tank, open the tank valve, waqit a few seconds, open the burner valve and light. You'll get unrestricted flow and much better heat.

SOURCE: Weber Genesis Gold B Grill Problem

Could be partially clogged burner openings (jets).
Remove the cooking grates and the flavorizer bars. Obtain a BRASS brush (like used to clean white-wall tires) and brush the burner tubes from side to side and up and down along their entire length to remove all corrosion from the jets. Also the cross-over tube.
Before replacing the flavorizer bars and cooking grates, ignite all burner tubes and check to see the flames are all of about equal length and intensity.
If this isn't the problem, check the screens at the right-side ends of the burner tubes to be sure they're not clogged.
If the burner tubes are all clean and some don't ever ignite, the problem could be in the valves/manifold.

SOURCE: my weber gas grill will not heat up past 300F

Hi John,

I just experienced the same exact problem ! I just bought a brand new Weber E-310 a 3 burner grill.
After I seasoned it up with cooking oil,I turned all the burners to high, opened the tank and clicked electrnic button several times , the grill was on then I went inside, I came out about an half-hour later and it was saying around 275 degrees..
I looked into my manual and there is a gas limit control valve that shuts down gas flow, when it thinks there is too much gas flow.

Sloution;
Turn the propane gas knob to off
Turn the gas grill knobs to Off.
Click the igniter several times to clear out any gas.
Then unscrew the regulator from the tank,( I then blew into the tank hole and regulator),
Screw back on the regulator to the propane tank.
I then clicked igniter again couple of times.
Now open your propane tank.
Then turn on front burner while clicking igniter, this will lite 1st burner.
Then turn 2nd burner on low then to high.
And if you have 3rd burner or more, turn low then to high!

John I did this and my grill went to 600 plus in a few minutes!!

The problem was turning the gas grill knobs on first then opening the tank then lighting...
You have to open propane tank with knobs off, THEN AS SOON AS YOU TURN ON 1ST KNOB, YOU MUST IGNITE ...

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: doesn't seem to be enough gas going into the

Hi am welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

1. Does the LPG tank have gas in it?
2. Is it one gas control or more that gives you this symptom? If it is more than one and there is gas in the LPG tank then the LPG regulator can be the problem.
3. There can be debris on the face of the gas orifice where the burner mates to to the gas control selector assy. (Spider webs / grease /dirt)
4. The air hole in the burner can be partially blocked with something (same as above Grease, dirt, cob webs)
5. The holes in the burner itself can be corroded or blocked with something. (This one would be pretty obvious)
6. The gas valve 'heat control may not be functioning properly.
7. There is a very remote possibility that the LPG hose has collapsed.

I would check the orifice and the burner holes for obstructions after verifying the LPG tank is usable. Then the next suspect would be the LPG regulator.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly

Weber gas grill heats up high when on low settings


After making sure your knobs are installed properly examine the full length of all burner tubes. You will be looking for areas of corrosion or damaged metal. Holes that are larger than they should be will cause too much LP expulsion resulting higher temperatures. Replacement parts, schematics, customer support and much more is available at the official Weber site. https://www.weber.com

Temperature control no longer works and grill is too hot


I would say that the thermocouple or thermostat has failed or the thermocouple may not be in the correct position. The thermocouple is the metal wire with a bulb on the end which usually sits in the cooing area, clipped to the sides or back.. This senses the heat and turns down or turns off the gas, to maintain which temperature you have selected.

Try these steps in order.
  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally

Low and intermittent flame of weber Q 220


You can try replacing the regulator to cure the gas flow problem, I believe the ignition is a piezo, if it does not click when you push it or turn it, it most likely needs to be replaced. If it still clicks, then there could be a bad wire or electrode.

Low temperature


I have the same smoker but not this problem. Is it possible that you have not let the coal get hot enough prior to putting your meat in it. When I feel that the temp is not hot enough I try to leave a little crack with the lid to allow air to flow from bottom to top stoking the coal. When you get the nack of it, this thing cooks an awesome turkey.

My weber Baby Q grill has a low flame.


Agree with rjmbridge. I called the Weber support people and was told that there is a built in safety feature on the regulator that will cause the flame to burn at a low setting if the gas within the extension tube to the large tank and regulator is not allowed enough time to equalize. They suggested turning on the gas from the tank very slowly, allow about 2 minutes with the temperature control knob turned off, then turn the temp knob on and light. This worked for me.
