Just bought a Weber Genesis II LX Model S-340 Natural Gas Grill. The plumber installed a 54' line, 1" in diameter. The grill will only heat up,to 400 degrees. What could be wrong?.


If he really installed a 54 foot line instead of a 54 inch line, the line is way to lone. The gas pressure isn't high enough to supply enough gas to the grill to get any hotter.

Need to convert our Q300 propane grill to natural gas. Do you sell conversion kits?


Unfortunately, Weber grills are not convertible from one gas type to another. There are no conversion kits available for your model or any Weber model gas grill.

To confirm this, go to the following link and on page 2 under Warnings, last paragraph, left hand column, you can confirm this, if you like.

http://help.weber.com/manuals/pdf_files_2011/Gas/Weber%20Q/Q300320_OwnersGuide_41060_021011.pdf


The only advantage to converting it to Natural Gas is not having to refill the grill tank. The downside, is that you will loose the heating capability that Propane has. It burns cleaner and hotter than Natural gas, in an outdoor environment.

Hope this helped you. Happy Grilling!!

With all three burners on high, the grill only goes to about 300 degrees F. All the burners are burning.


Has it ever burned hotter? I assume this is propane? If so the new safety valves I find are very finicky. Try turning off the gas. disconect hose from tank. Reconnect, turn back on gas and see if it is better. I

I had one that would not give full flame and sometimes I had to do this 3 or 4 times before it would give a full flame.
Good luck

I thoroughly cleaned my Weber Genesis Silver A and have a full tank of gas. It won't get hotter than 250-300 degrees. Flames are blue.


You might have air block. When turning off the grill, leave one burner on and shut the tank valve.
When grill cools, close the remaining valve. When restarting the grill, open the tank valve, then the start burner, then the igniter. When first burner is going, open remaining two valves to preheat the grill.

This has worked on two different grills.

Try these steps in order.
  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally

I have a new weber spirit 320. the temperature rose to 600 degress initially but now won't go over 300 degress. replaced tank with a new one and still won't get hotter than 300 degress.


Allowing the gas to rapidly come out of the tank triggers the safety feature. S L O W L Y open valve just a tad. A safety device inside the tank will shut down the flow of gas if it thinks their is a leak.

Weber won't get very hot


Safety valve needs reset.
  • Close the LP tank valve
  • Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
  • Open the grill lid
  • Turn the LP tank valve until it is completely open
  • Wait several seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.
  • Turn remaining burners to High
  • Close the lid.
  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes
I called Weber and the rep walked me through the reset. All grills made after 1996 have this bypass valve.

The temp/flame on my weber grill won't get hotter


Hello,

Check the excess flow safety device, which is part if the barbeque to cylinder connection, may have activated. To reset the excess flow safety device turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve off.
Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to high. Wait at least 1 minute . Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve slowly.
