Question about Weber Genesis Silver A Grill
--can't get the heat up to 550 degrees- the grill is about 7 years old. We just got it hitched up for this year--did not have trouble last year--have we done something wrong?--Nancy Peterson
Hi Nancy and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
After a BBQ has sat for a while there are things that need to be checked.
1. Remove the burner(s) and check for anything in the gas path area. Use a BBQ stick if necessary to remove any cobwebs.
2. While the burner(s) is/are removed check the burner orifices for any build up and wipe it clean with a dry cloth.
3. There is a possibility after 7 years that the regulator has started the corrosion process and the diaphram is sticking not allowing full pressure to the gas control valves. If you suspect an LPG reguator problem just replace it. After 7 years it is time anyway.
That should get your temps back to normal again. If not then you may have to disassemble the gas valves and clean them. Carb cleaner or engine degreaser works great on the greese build up. Engine degreaser however will discolor things if you do not rinse it off quite well right away. Same thing goes for oven cleaner.
Thanks for using FixYa.
