Question about Weber Q Grill
Age of the grill is irrelevant, i am old and i still can do few thingzzzz...
i assume that your regulator is connected directly to the bottle, then hose to your bottle, then hose is connected to the regulator and other end to the grill?
or it is bottle, hose, regulator, grill?
you need to follow the path regardless, be outside, light breeze is better, no open flame in at least 20m (yards) radius in any direction.
1. close gas bottle/tank
2. disconnect, everything from the bottle
3. crack open tank valve and hear if gas is escaping, close valve back
4. connect regulator to the bottle and again crack open the valve, hear if you have esacping gas, allow actually whiff of gas against your cheek or wetted finger to establish the flow. close the valve
5. connect hose to the regulator (procedure is reversed if first is hose and then regulator), crack open the valve, hear for escaping gas, check against wetted finger and cheek if there is flow, close the valve
6. connect your grill open all valves on it and open valve on the tank/bottle. allow free flow for about 30sec, close valves on grill. vent grill for about two minutes, try to ignite any of the burners. if burner ignite, you solved the problem, if they do not, and you did have flow on all previous stages, close bottle valve, disconnect everything from grill, clean grill valves and nozzles (burner have nozzle inside!), reconnect and vent again, try ignite, if ignition occures, you solve the problem, if not, then you are due for new grill...
if at any stage you do not have gas flow, this meant that this particular piece of equipment is in trouble, this particular piece of equipment need then repair or replacement, under no circumstance pull apart the reducer! NO OPEN FLAME DURING TESTING!!!

Hi,I presume you have already checked to be sure gas tank isnt empty.Not trying to be funny, Honest!
I have assumed before and it bit me lol
Have you checked the connection to tank?
Did you recently replace the tank?
have you used this grill since the last time you replaced tank?
Some of the new tanks have a overfill protection device on them.
When you connect regulator and hose it meets resistance when the valve touches regulator then requires aa turn or so more to engauge valve to open it so gas can flow through.
If this didnt fix problem ,check hose for obstructions.
Most of all Be Careful with gas !!!!!!!
If you have problems or arent sure,ASK before making mistake!
It is probably a simple thing but gas can be dangerous if it accumulates,
So Be CAREFUL

SOURCE: When I try to light
What you have is delayed ignition. It's being caused by the gas regulator. It is solvable, though.
Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
Once the valve is fully open, light 1 burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and does th eflame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner the identical same way. Now, to both flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly. And always light the burners with the Lid/Hood Open.
If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly. Since your grill is brand new, the Hose/Regulator Assembly will be covered under Warranty. Have your Proof of Purchase handy and call Weber 1-800-446-1071. Also, if you haven't done so already, register your grill before calling http://help.weber.com/register/ even if you don't need a new Hose/Regulator Assembly.
Hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem.
