Hi,
That can happen with any grill under the right conditions....fireman know about it in houses....the gases build up and when air is given the flame shoots out....
It is best to always make sure you are clear of the front when opening the lid on ANY grill..

My new roadside coleman grill doesn't produce a flame. It heats but not enough to have a visible flame. I am using a 1lb. propane cilynder.


Flames are merely particulates that are heated enough to glow. If a fuel is burning cleanly there will be no visible flames.

If I'm smoking peppers why would I use the water tray in the smoker?


the water keeps the peppers moist with out the water thay would dry out the choking down or opening the door is up to you with the door open the faster they will tend to cook more air equals more flame wich equals more heat . door closed less heat more smokey flavor and takes longer to cook

Low flame - doesn't heat enough


Hi, Patty. The low burner flame on a natural gas grill an be caused by several things.

1. The gas line shutoff valve is not fully open.
2. The burners are clogged and need to be removed and properly cleaned
3. The venturi valve(s), which has spider screens may be clogged.

The things listed above are the top 3 reasons for the low burner flame problem on a Natural Gas Grill.

To help you accomplish the cleaning of the burners and the venturi valves, I have included a link to your Owners Manual, that you can download & print for future reference. It has detailed instructions and diagrams in the Maintenance section, that will show you how to accomplish this.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Low flame & heat - Cleaned all tubes, replaced regulator


Close the air vent on the burners to get more flame if that does not work you have a bad thermostat!

Grill does not get as hot as it used to.


You may have already tried this but sometimes the safety devices on the tank will engage, resulting in a weaker than normal flame and little to no real heating. Try this. Ensure that the valve on the tank is off. Then turn the grill valve on to release any gas that may be in the lines. Turn the grill valve back off, and turn the tannk valve on. You may hear a click as those safeties kick off. Then try to light your grill and see if the flames are normal. Always remember that the valve on the tank should always be turned on first, then the grill valve. Also the tank should always be turned off first, and then the grill valve. That may not be your problem, but I've seen it happen many times.

When I light my grill only one side of the burner has a flame, on all 3 burners. I cleaned everything and even cleaned each hole in the burners. What's next?


This is a common problem with grills purchased after 2001. There is a new safety feature inside the regulator called a 'surge protector'. If you open your propane bottle valve too quickly or if you try attaching a tank with the tank valve in the 'open' position, the propane wants to 'surge' into the grill.

When the propane surges into the regulator (located on the grill hose) the 'surge protector' (inside the regulator) kicks on. When this happens you will not be able to get your grill lit, and if you do, it will be a small blue flame and the grill will not heat up.

So what to do if you trip the surge protector and can't get your grill to light or heat up?

Shut the tank off and shut the valves on the grill off. Disconnect the tank from the grill hose. When you disconnect the tank from the hose you will hear the excess pressure of propane release. This is an indication that you have re-set the regulator's surge protector.

Now that you have deactivated or reset the surge protector, reconnect the tank. Make sure the valve on the tank and the valves on the grill are in the closed and in the off position. After you reconnect the tank to the hose, SLOWLY open the tank valve (making sure the valves on the grill are in the OFF position).

Since you have slowly opened the valve on the tank, the propane did not surge into the regulator and the surge protector did not activate.

Now open 1 valve on the grill and light it. You should get a nice flame. If your grill has more than one valve, open each following valve in sequential order to extend the flames to the other burners.

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.

How do I take my Weber Genesis grill apart to clean the burners? The burners are not heating up properly. The flame is very poor and not hot enough to cook food.


Turn on just one burner, once it is lit, turn on a second burner, if the flame gets lower or goes out, you probably need a new regulator.

Flames only come out very low on both sides


disconnect tank, hook tank back up, then open valve slowly. When opened to fast it thinks valve is leaking and shuts down.
