Hello,
Ok, let's tackle the obvious things first. New grill with new tank... so was the tank filled? Did they purge it before they filled it? Did you turn the tank valve on very slowly? Were all the grill knobs turned to off when you turned on the gas tank? Try closing the propane tank valve, disconnecting it and reconnecting it. Then very slowly turn it on and light one burner at a time at turn to low heat. Then light additional burners the same way and adjust flame as needed after all are lit. Hope this helps! Douglas

To determine if it is the switch, remove the wires from the back of the switch and touch them together, if the lights come on, it is the switch. You will have to contact Weber for a new switch.

How to replace the carburetor with a high performance off road weber carburetor.


if you have a down draft carby, you can just buy an adaptor plate to suit a down draft webber if the webber doesn't just bolt on, or if you want to use side draft webbers, you'll need a new manifold too

Can't get a flame


Unscrew the fitting off the tank and make sure there isn't an extra washer in there. Sometimes when you get a tank there will be a washer inside it that has slid of the last guys POL(screw in hickey) With this extra washer, the POL isn't going in far enough to open the tank valve.

Cannot get good flame on the burner of my baby weber grill. I've tried cleaning it checked hose, tank, regulator, seems to have good flow, but low flame only, even when set in high????????


I had this problem with a brand new grill so it wasn't grease in the hose. Due to the new propane regulators you have to turn the propane tank on for at least a minute before turning the grill to light. Let the tank sit in the light position for five seconds and then you light the grill. This will keep air from getting into the intake hose and will keep your gas flame roaring high.

I was only able to get the grill up to 250 degrees before I found this fix posted on the Weber site. It is listed as the number one solution in the FAQ section.
