Hello. I have Weber Summit 670 NG and I would like to convert it to LPG. I was told that it can be solved if I replace the NG Orifice with LPG Orifice. Is that true ? Where can I buy the LPG Orifice...


Ronni, unfortunately none of the Weber grills are approved for conversion from one type of gas to another. Each grill is tested and approved for it's specific gas type. Based on that, converting it, places all the liability on you, if something should go wrong. In addition, it takes more than just the burner orifices to convert a grill safely. With any gas appliance, always err on the side of caution and safety.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a weber E320 grill and it is making a fairly loud humming sound by the connection of the tank. I just had the tank filled and checked for any leaks. It was determined that the tank is not the issue....


It is the gas flowing through the diaphragm of the regulator. It is common here in South Florida where we have alot of humidity. It is nothing to be concerned. You can also spray soapy water around the regulator fittings if you are concerned of any leaking around the regulator.

I have a Weber Silver B grill that I purchased 12 years ago.I would like to convert it from propane to Natural Gas. I have been told I cant! Is this true? If not, where can I get a conversion kit? Thanks!


Weber stopped selling conversion kits due to some legal action in 2008. There are no longer kits available. What you would have to do to covert it is order a replacement gas valve for the NG version of your grill just to get the orifices. Then you have to replace the LP regulator with a NG regulator. Typically most NG grills do NOT have a regulator but local building codes will require a NG regulator and a different gas line hose.
Conversion of a BBQ gas valve to NG is a matter of drilling out the orifice to a larger hole in an LP orifice.
You will not find anyone that will perform this conversion for you due to legal liabilites.
If you want to convert it... you will either have to order the whole gas control valve for NG or drill out the orifices yourself in your current gas valve hoping your got the orifice hole size correct when you drilled it. Mind you all liability for doing this lies solely with you.

The second burner on my weber grill makes a humming sound.


Sometimes, under specific atmospheric conditions, the regulator will hum. This is not a problem in most cases, but if you put on a new regulator and hose it may correct the problem.

There is a humming noise coming out of the bbq when i turn the gas on


This noise is a cause of restricted gas flow. Try disconnecting tank and reconnecting. Open valve slowly, see if this solves problem. If problem still exists then problem could be with tank or regulator. Try tank first, if this doesn't solve problem call weber and your regulator should be under warranty and be replaced for free.

Regulator vibration


Hello,
If you are using a disposable propane bottle, make sure it is not horizontal when it's hooked up. It should be at a 45 degree angle or higher. You may be getting liquid out of the bottle (instead of vapor) at the angle you have it hooked up. Hope this helps. Douglas

Regulator hums when in use and barbeque gets excessively hot


You have the bottle valve opened all the way, the gas is rushing through the regulator making the diaphragm vibrate which is the humming noise you are hearing. With the gas flowing like that, you are basically preventing the ability to control temperature so the grill gets way hot. The best thing to do is to open the valve one full turn only and then light the grill...if you can't get it hot enough after that, then open the valve another full turn...you should never have to open that valve all the way...if you start having to do that then the bottle is almost empty and needs to refilled.

Noisy pressure regulator


This is on the Weber site, under support. I have been experiencing the same problem and have not used it because of it.

Humming or whistling from the regulator: Outside temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and the gas level within the tank may cause the rubber diaphragm inside the regulator to vibrate, making a humming or whistling sound. Although this sound may be alarming, this is NOT dangerous as long as it is not accompanied by the smell of gas. If the humming sound persists, a change in atmospheric conditions will eventually stop the vibration.
