    Check the excess flow safety device, which is part if the barbeque to cylinder connection, may have activated. To reset the excess flow safety device turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve off.

    Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to high. Wait at least 1 minute . Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve slowly.

I have a weber genesis grill. It did not heat up above 425 degrees at first and now it does not go above 300. This is with the searer on as well. Does this make sense to you? It is hooked up to a...

Was your grill originally set up for Natural Gas or did to convert it from Propane to Natural Gas? If so, where did you get the conversion kit? It may have been missing some vital parts.

If it was not a conversion, did the grill come with a natural gas regulator already installed?

Please advise... Thanks

I love,love,love my baby webber. I bought it when they first came out. I can only use the tall, blue propane bottle. I seen some where that they were using the short, wide, green one. My wire guide...

The easiest solution to this problem is to remove the screw securing the wire tank holder in place, and then just bend the holder a little bit wider so that it will fit the slightly larger 16 oz green tanks found in the camping section of most stores.

You can even buy buy a hose connector adapter for it so that you can hook it up to a large home barbeque type propane tank if you want. See the following consumer reviews of that unit for more details and ideas:

Thank you and good luck.

Grill won't heat up above 200 DEGREES with a nearly full tank

Try replacing the regulator and hose, not very expensive and fairly easy to do. If that doesn't help, let me know.

This can be caused by the safety valve in the propane tank. Most times this can be corrected by tuning off the valve on the tank, make sure all the controls on the grill are in the off position. Then turn on the tank valve and try restarting the grill. All the controls on the grill must be off, before reopening the tank valve. If that does not work try another propane tank.
