Question about Weber Q Grill

1 Answer

Does the grill fail to send out gas when the burners are bad? The burners do need replacing. Does it have an automatic cut off if the burners are bad? All of a sudden one day it would not light (even with a long BBQ lighter no gas flowing). I changed to a full tank of gas no change.

On some models the gas will shut off automatically if a leak is detected in any connection. Re-check the connections and test with soapy water.

My grill has 4 burners. When I light the first one, everything is fine. When I go to light the second one, it sounds like it is cutting off the gas and it won't light. You can hear the gas coming out...


The problem you're having is a result of the gas tank & the grill's gas regulator. However, in most cases, it's solvable if you do the following.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF & 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 valve is full open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set it on HIGH.
Does the fame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the exact same way.
Did all the burners light and the flame heights look correct? Is so, you solved the problem.
Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at hardware stores or home centers that sell grills & grill accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

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

How do we fix a gas grill that doesn't cook evenly


Usually if you're have hot and cold spots, it's the burners that need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. In addition, cleaning the venturi valves while the burners are out, is equally important. The Venturi valves are part of each burner. You will see them near the open end of the burner (looks like 2 slots cut into each side of the burner) where it fits over the burner orifice. While the burners are out, closely inspect each one for corrosion or rust thru. If you find severe corrosion or rust thru, the burner(s) should be replaced.

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

Lights but does not heat up beyond 250degrees


If this is a propane grill, try replacing the regulator and hose going to the tank. When a regulator is failing, it allows gas to pass, but not enough to allow the grill to heat up properly. If this is an older grill. You can also check each burner for blocked gas ports. Just a few blocked ports in a burner can prevent the burner from lighting completely, or from moving from one side of the burner to the other.

How do you replace a burner on a ducane gas grill


Hello : Here are two solutions , just look which one of them is the most helpful .

  1. Turn off the gas supply and bleed the lines leading to the grill. Remove the gas tank if possible.
  2. Open the grill and remove the grates. In some cases you will need to
    detach the hoses from under the grill using simple hand tools. Other grills may have simple "float in" style of burner. These styles look as if the tubes from the burner leading to the gas supply lines simply "float" into each other. Look for clamps of holders that may need to be removed.
  3. Remove the damaged burner and remove from grill. Take a moment to inspect the other burners and any other hoses in case you need to replace more than one piece. Place the burner in a plastic bag and take it to the home store so you can get the exact parts you need. This removes all guess work.
  4. Before replacing the burner/burners etc, take a moment to clean any material, grease etc from the bottom of the grill. Replace the burners and hoses as needed. Check the connections before reconnecting the gas supply. Turn the gas on and start to flow of gas to the burners without lighting the grill. Make sure the flow is working. Be sure to turn the gas off, let the fuel dissipate before lighting.
  5. With everything working, fire up the grill and enjoy.

Or try these help here :


  1. Turn off the gas supply valve on the tank. Remove the fuel line from the fuel tank by turning the connection nut counter-clockwise with your hand.
  2. Open the Char-Broil gas grill and remove the main cooking grate. You do not need to remove the upper warming racks to change the burners.
  3. Remove the lava rocks from the grill and pull the rock grate out. Unhook the flame spreader from each end where the spreader attaches to the inside body of the grill. The spreader is the angled piece that sits over the burner.
  4. Locate the cotter pin that secures the front of the burner to the grill body. Remove the cotter pin with a pair of needle nose pliers. Lift the burner up and pull the burner venturi tubes out of the gas valve.
  5. Set the new burner inside the grill with the venturi tubes inside the gas valve opening. Install the cotter pin to secure the burner to the grill body. Place the flame spreader back inside the grill and hook the ends to the grill body.
  6. Place the rock grate, lava rocks and cooking grate back inside the grill. Reattach the fuel line to the fuel tank.
Here you need Needle nose pliers.

Please report me which one helped the most .

good luck .

Burners light and go out on kenmore quantum


sounds like gas is not flowing enough to support all burners- if its propaine,then it has a Regulator that connects to tank. That Regulator is bad and needs to be replaced. Burners clogged or rusted is not a good thing also

Grill jenn-air will not heat past 100 degrees


You need to pull the burners out and scrub open the side feedholes on the burner. These ususally clog up over time reducing the heat available for cooking. Also, sometimes the Gas regulator goes bad over time when left outside for a year or two. A bad regulator will put out less gas as it fails closed.

Exhaust turns on automatically in burner mode


Hello
I have the one with the 4 burners and the grill, and when the grill in on the fan has to come on, and it does automaticly, but once you finish with the grill you have to change it back to stove mode by putting the 2 burners back or the fan will allways go on when you turn the switch. It is a safety regulation for the fan to be on with the grill to avoid the fumes......I know I hate that too.
Hope this help
