Question about Weber Genesis Silver A Grill

My grill won't heat up

I have a Webster Silver grill it is about 10 years old. I can not get it to heat up any more. I changed out a lot of inside parts on the grill but it is heating up very slowly and never getting as hot as it is supposed to.

Put on new tank and grill won't ignite. Connection is tight. Once I heard the gas and now nothing. It's been days. I tried cleaning out a bit. The large black plastic cap does have some cracks...

I don't think you need a new ignitor kit. The problem isn't there. It's the grill's regulator.
However, I do have some concern with the cracks inside the Hose Connect to the tank, being cracked. That should be replaced. You can pickup a new Hose/Regulator Assembly for about $30.00 any hardware store or home improvement center that sell grills and accessories. Take the old one with you for comparison purposes.

After installing the new hose. Open the Gas Valve on the tank VERY. VERY Slowly (Slow motion, slow). Doing it this way will, eliminate the problem you're having now. And always to it this way in the future.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My grill will light up but will never heat up. My grill is only a year old. Help!

you need to check the air vents at the end of the burner, sounds like their might be something blocking the air flow, like a spider web.

Rear Burner is hotter than the front burner on my Weber Grill

Since the grill is 15 years old, it is probably time to rebuild it. Replace both burners and anything else that is not working properly

Very weak flame/slow cooking

Check the holes on the burners. There seems to be a yellow residue that collects and blocks the small holes. I use a toothpick every other season to clear them out.

Ignite prob

You've got two different things going on.  First - the type of igniter used on your model does wear.  I have had mine for over 10 years and have gone through 3 such igniters - and I grill nearly 3 times per week over the 25 week "grilling" season where I live. Spring for the $12 part and just replace it. The other issue sounds like a clogged cross-over system.  I would remove the burners, including the cross-over bar on the far left side that connects them.  Clean the exterior with a stiff steel/brass brush and the inside with a bottle brush.  Make sure all the holes are clear to allow gas to flow easily - use a wooden tooth-pick to do this to make sure you don't change the size of the holes! Put that baby back together and I think you'll find you'll be good as new!
These grills are great.  Now, if Weber could only fix the uneven heat problem between the left and right side I'd REALLY be happy!  (I wish they would even just admit there IS a problem!)
Good luck and happy grilling.
