Question about Weber Performer Grill
Assuming that you have fuel and spark, check the following.
Mine did this, it was spiders, web and egg debris in the air inlet tube. It does not take much dirt to kill the ignition process.
If you have the perforated and hinged black plastic air inlet covers open them up and clean out the dirt. Reinstall the covers when done.

This grill is definitely worth fixing. I have had similar problems with several weber 8006 grills. It is usually something obstructing or diluting the flow of fuel. If you have a new tank and your igniter is working (you have tried using a propane hand-held lighter, I assume) then it seems that it must be either the hose/gas line or the burner tubes. I would first check the main tubes and cross tube carefully for places that are rusted through. Holes can lower the pressure in the tubes and make them difficult to light (try just turning on and lighting the front burner). I would then clean the tubes at the spider trap/air vent end, which is nearest the propane tank. The spider traps, if you have them, are little plastic cages and the edges snap together. You can use a vacuum to gently clean out the tubes. If this does not work, you can buy or borrow a similar, but working hose. As they say, "it is always the last thing you try that fixes the problem".
