    Gotcha, thanks. Called the free 800 number on Weber's website and spoke to troubleshooting dept. who then emailed me instructions on removing and cleaning the burners and cross over bar. It worked. Burners were free of obstruction but cross over bar was in bad shape. Cleaned enough to get working again, but will probably only get one more summer out of it. Thanks again.

My back burners wont light but my front two will genesis silver edition


If the Cross Over Tube/Burner is clogged, the ignition flame can't get to the last 2 burners to light them. To check this, light the front 2 burners using the ignitor button and try match lighting the back burners. If they match light, that indicates that the Cross Over Tube is clogged. You will need to remove it to clean it properly. Which can be a chore in itself. Be careful removing it, because if it's rusted, it may break.

Hope this helped you, Kevin and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have 3 burners...two will light and one won't light anymore.....??? Bill


Bill, I suspect that the third burner needs to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. As does the venturi valve on the open end of the burner. If however, the 3rd burner is the one that ignites from the cross over tube burner, you will have to clean and/or replace the cross over tube burner.

To assist you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your model grill, Just in case you have misplaced yours. You can download and print it for future reference.

The crossover tube won't ignite past the first few inches from the front element. I have tapped it to clear it, cleared teh little side holes and even ran a wire through it (as a few of the...


If the cross over tube burner has rusted to the point of collapse is a pretty good indicator that it needs to be replaced. I personally, don't see in correlation between LP tank and the collapse of the crossover tube burner. A weak tank, as you called it, would not have any bearing to it.

Now, if you're match lighting the other burners and the flame height remains low, even when turned to high. That's a problem with the grills regulator, which can easily be solved.

Turn the Tank Valve OFF and 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), until the valve is fully open. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner to HIGH. If the flame height now, looks correct, light the remaining burners the same way. If all the flame heights have returned to normal, you solved that problem.

if it didn't solve the problem, you need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly and the crossover tube. The hose/regulator assembly can be purchased at any home center or hardware store, that sells gas grills and accessories. Tank the old one with you for comparison purposes. The Crossover Burner can be purchased from Weber or Factory Appliance Parts http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/

Hope this aids you in troubleshooting and solving the problem. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Viking gas oven model # VGIC3656BSS, serial #022404-2919 takes FOREVER to preheat up. Sometimes in excess of 40 minutes. Been a problem for a while. Looks like flames at bottom do not increase when oven...


When increasing the temp. on a gas range the oven's burners do not increase flame size as the cooktop burners do. It just keeps the burner lighted for a longer amount of time.

First if you can see the burners do they light within about a min. or less. If no you probably have bad igniters which are not lighting the burners as quickly as they should or they are "opening up" (stops working) when they get too hot. In this case replacement of the igniters should solve the problem.

Second if it lights quickly but still takes a while to heat; you want to look at the burners to ensure that the flames are down both sides of the burner tube and not dancing around too much. If only part of the two sides of the burner tubes are lighted then a pluged orifice or burner tube is the most likely cause. Once cleaned it should work fine.

As with anything mechanical there are numurous possiblities for something not working correctly and above are the two most popular reasons that come to my mind.

Can not light gas grill - Weber 8006 Have done all suggested thing such as full tank of gas, regulator checked, check for spider webs. No gas seems to be reaching burners.


This grill is definitely worth fixing. I have had similar problems with several weber 8006 grills. It is usually something obstructing or diluting the flow of fuel. If you have a new tank and your igniter is working (you have tried using a propane hand-held lighter, I assume) then it seems that it must be either the hose/gas line or the burner tubes. I would first check the main tubes and cross tube carefully for places that are rusted through. Holes can lower the pressure in the tubes and make them difficult to light (try just turning on and lighting the front burner). I would then clean the tubes at the spider trap/air vent end, which is nearest the propane tank. The spider traps, if you have them, are little plastic cages and the edges snap together. You can use a vacuum to gently clean out the tubes. If this does not work, you can buy or borrow a similar, but working hose. As they say, "it is always the last thing you try that fixes the problem".

All of the sudden my front right burner will not light. I clicks like it wants to light and you can smell the gas but it will not light.All the other burners are working fine.


Take a look at the burner when it is clicking and make sure the igniter electrode is creating a spark. If the burner head is removable pull off the burner cap and head. Inspect the burner head for debris and clean. Make sure any small holes on the burner head are not plugged. There is usually a small hole where the electrode is that a gas must exit for proper ignition. If the burner has a center igniter for two burners then inspect the flash tube for that burner and make sure it is centered and there is no obstructions in the flash tube. On that burner there are little holes located in front of the flash tube call step-up ports. Check to make sure those little holes are not plugged.

Counter top stove burner won't light


Hi, You asked a very generic question but I will try to give you a good answer. If the pilot is good and you can light the burner with a match, (this checks everything else) then the most common problem would be the burner holes in front of the pilot are clogged. When cool, remove the burner and inspect the holes, any debris needs to be removed, a bent paper clip works really well. Compressed air helps as well. If there is a tube to the pilot make sure it is exactly where it belongs and that it is clean. If the match didn't light the burner or the flames is not all blue like the rest, there is something else wrong and you need to get back to us with a make and model to better help you. Make sure the burner gets seated back on the orifice correctly and best of Luck to you!

My wolf rage doesn't light anymore by turning a nob


some models have one gas pilot for 2 burner front and rear and there is a small pipe that goes front the burner to to the pilot, the burner has small holes facing the pipe the goes to the pilot that's where you take a paper clip or a safety pin and clear or clean the holes, the same thing on the electronic ignition, but some electronic ignition they have a spark right nest to the burner and by looking at the other burner that are working you can see where it's sparking, and clean in between the burner and the spark.
