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.

I have a Weber Spirit E-210 and the temp will not rise above 300. I cleaned the burners and still an issue. Does the Regulator need to be replaced?

The regulator may need to be replaced. But, before you do, follow the directions below.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY
(Slow motion, slow).
3. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first & turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct for being in the highest setting?
If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, did all the burners light and do the flame
heights all look correct for being on the highest setting? If so, you may have solved the problem.
4. Close the grill's Hood/Lid and allow it to heat for at least 20 minutes. At that point is the
thermometer registering higher than 300 degrees or quickly heading in that direction?
If so, you did solve the problem! Remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if that didn't solve the problem, you'll need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00.
Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope the helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know & Happy Grilling!!

Temperature will not go over about 310 to 320 F

Try disconnecting your propane tank for a few minutes. The regulator will restrict the gas flow if it senses a surge. Sometimes it will reset its self and work normally again. When you reconnect the tank, open the valve 1/2 turn, then light the grill, then open the valve more. That might help as well. Depending on the age of the grill, it might be under warranty. Check your manual. If you cannot get it operating normally, call this phone number and speak to a Weber rep and you will find them to be very helpful. You would be amazed at their customer service. They aim to please. The number. if needed, is 1-800-446-1071. Also, make sure your burners are all lighting and working properly.

Weber Spirit one month old...went out, changed tank, won't light

The regulator that comes with Weber grills shuts the gas flow off if it detects the slightest leak. Disconnect the tank an reconnect. Check connections with soapy water for any leaks. Another problem, though uncommon for a new grill is a defective regulator. You have a 1 year warrenty on your grill so contact Weber if you continue to have problems.

New Tank won't light Weber Grill

Try checking the regulator, this is the round metal piece connected to the gas line. If this is not level flat the valve inside will not let propane flow through.

Cannot get temperature over 300 degrees anymore

It was the regulator bypass.

It sounds like the regulator is shutting down and preventing the grill from getting all of the propane it needs. to remedy your problem disconnect the tank and then reconnect it. Usually that is all it takes to get the regulator to work properly. If the problem continues just get a new hose with regulator attached.

Low burners, low heat

If you turn on the gas too fast with the newer tan systems, it can make the system think it has a leak and slows the gas flow down. Use proper start up procedures. Call Weber to walk you through them.
