Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill
When I turn on the gas and try to light grill a noise comes from the tank. What do I do to correct this problem? Thankyou.
Yours is a DOT type tank (portable not fixed)
What is the noise? Is it gas coming from the tank to the burner? Hissssssssssss Are you properly connected? Is this a OPD equipped tank? Is there a hole or crack in the hose letting the gas out before it gets to the burner?
Do not examine it with a match!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If your tank is very old, you may not have a OPD equipped tank (is the handle three sided?) Yes = OPD No = old style. Only OPD equipped tanks can be filled in the USA. Old style tanks can leak if not properly connected.
New OPD tanks will not let gas out unless there is something properly connected to the tank. You are NOT fooling around with the 80% valve are you? If you are - STOP. (small screw on the right hand side of the connection fitting.)
If there is any fault in the equipment, connector, regularor, hose or any fitting - get it fixed! One gallon of liquid propane becomes more than 350 cubic feet of highly combustible gas. If it leaks out and gets ignited, at least it will be quick! Dont become the entertainment!
Any parts that are questionable ... replace them!
Please seek additional assistance from your professional propane supplier.
