Hi,
The problem is the regulator...the diaphram has gone bad and not only does it leak, but it does not give the correct pressure.

Full tank but no gas smell and just bought a new hose and regulator


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Test the propane tank valve for leaks:
  1. Turn the grill control knobs on the front (and, on some models, the side) of the barbecue to the off position.
  2. Turn the propane tank valve fully counterclockwise to close it.
  3. Mix a test solution of equal parts of dishwashing liquid and water in a small container.
  4. To test for leaks, apply the test solution liberally to the connection between the regulator fitting and the tank valve using a small paint brush. Apply the test solution to the valve handle and threads, the length of the hose, and the connection between the hose and the regulator. If bubbles appear at any point, there is a gas leak.
  5. Tighten the connections and retest.
  6. If you still see bubbles at any of the tested connections, close the tank valve and replace the leaking component.
Test the hose fittings for leaks:
  1. With the tank valve open, brush the test solution on the fitting at the other end of the hose, located under the control knobs.
  2. Turn the control knob to high and test the hose and fittings leading from the control knob to the grill. Turn the right control knob to off. Repeat the process for the other control knobs.
  3. If you see any bubbles during any of these tests, close the tank valve and contact your propane dealer or your local gas utility. Do not use the barbecue until the leak is corrected

Grill won't start


if your sure the propane tank is full, and the valve is open, (counter clockwise, and the control knob is on? you should not only smell it after 20 seconds, but if you put your ear near the grill you should hear a sound like air leaking.If you hear nothing and smell nothing, good chance there is a blockage in the line, or the burner holes are filled with drippings. First off, get a wire brush and scrub the burners where you see the small holes that the flame normally comes out of, then try the grill again, if still nothing (and your 100% sure the tank is full, the tank is on, and the control knob is on high) you may need to start taking apart the grill, looking for a blockage, many times its below the control knob where you will see an adjustable screen, spider webs and such will get in there and block the flow. Remember to not do any of that with the tank on the grill, remove the tank first.;

Need to convert our Q300 propane grill to natural gas. Do you sell conversion kits?


Unfortunately, Weber grills are not convertible from one gas type to another. There are no conversion kits available for your model or any Weber model gas grill.

To confirm this, go to the following link and on page 2 under Warnings, last paragraph, left hand column, you can confirm this, if you like.

http://help.weber.com/manuals/pdf_files_2011/Gas/Weber%20Q/Q300320_OwnersGuide_41060_021011.pdf


The only advantage to converting it to Natural Gas is not having to refill the grill tank. The downside, is that you will loose the heating capability that Propane has. It burns cleaner and hotter than Natural gas, in an outdoor environment.

Hope this helped you. Happy Grilling!!

I use the small propane tanks. I had a brand new tank and after one use, I noticed the tank was empty. I put another new tank on and the next day could smell gas. So it appears I have a gas leak or...


You need an extra set of hands for the ignition assembly. The gas leak is probably in the tank connection assembly. The plastic fitting may be cracked. Unfortunately, you're the third person I have had in 5 days, that has had a leak in their Weber Q100. The last time I checked for someone, the gas tank fitting/holder was out of stock. No available date was listed. You may want to convert it to take a 20 Lb LPG Grill tank. Ironically, that conversion part is available.

Hope this helped you with the leaking situation and I wasn't kidding about an extra set of hands.

Does not heat up right


Disconnect tank - remove cooking grates and flavorizer bars - use a soft metal brush and lightly brush the burner tube (where the flame comes out) and make sure they are not clogged up. While you have the grates and bars out you should clean them as well with hot soapy water and a brush. Put all pieces back in when done cleaning and re-connect the propane tank. Open propane tank valve 1/3 of a turn and light grill. After it ignites, open valve further. Usually a good cleaning will take care of it. If not, it may be the gas regulator. Weber has great customer service and will be more than glad to help you with just a phone call. On your grill there should be a label showing your model and serial number. It is very helpful if you have this info if you call Weber (but not totally necessary). Weber contact number is 1-800-446-1071

Mix some water and detergent together - where ever it bubbles that is where the leak is. Sometimes the thread is worn so get some GAS Tape and undo the thread - wrap tape around re-tighten and then check for leaks again with soapy water

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.
