Question about Weber Spirit SP-310 Propane Grill

1 Answer

I have a Weber spirit 3 burner grill. It's about three years old. If I turn on gas at regulator, no problem. Once I turn on gas at grill and then light the grill, I begin to smell gas. I've taken off the grilling grates and the diffusers, so I can see the burners. They are all lit. I've inspected the hose, and it seems to be in good condition. I've sprayed it and just about everything else with soapy water and I don't see any gas escapiing. The only thing that looks slightly abnormal is that the rear burner is burning a little less high, and a little bluer than the two front burners. Otherwise, everything looks ok.

SOURCE: I need directions for using a weber grill

Open the bottom vent, open the top vent. Start your charcoal in a chimney starter (my favorite way). Dump in the burning charcoal. Wipe down grill grate with canola or other high temp oil. Place grate on grill, cover, set top and bottom vents to desired temp. Cook food. Cleanup.

SOURCE: Rear Burner is hotter than the front burner on my Weber Grill

Since the grill is 15 years old, it is probably time to rebuild it. Replace both burners and anything else that is not working properly

SOURCE: 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.

Unable to get gas our of 'Blue Rhino" propane


The problem is an easy fix. Replace the current Hose/Regulator Assembly with a new one. They run about $30.00, at home centers and hardware stores that sell grills and accessories.

Once you install the new one and connect it to the gas tank, open the gas tank valve Very Very Slowly (Slow Motion, Slow) until it's fully open. If you don't do it this, the new regulator will lockup.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Weber Spirit E-210 and the temp will not rise above 300. I cleaned the burners and still an issue. Does the Regulator need to be replaced?


The regulator may need to be replaced. But, before you do, follow the directions below.

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY
(Slow motion, slow).
3. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first & turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct for being in the highest setting?
If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, did all the burners light and do the flame
heights all look correct for being on the highest setting? If so, you may have solved the problem.
4. Close the grill's Hood/Lid and allow it to heat for at least 20 minutes. At that point is the
thermometer registering higher than 300 degrees or quickly heading in that direction?
If so, you did solve the problem! Remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if that didn't solve the problem, you'll need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00.
Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope the helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know & Happy Grilling!!

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.

My Weber gas grill is less than a year old. The


gas regulator make sure all burners are off when you connect bottle... the units have a leak sensor and will stop the gas coming out because it thinks you have a leak when you connected the bottle. now try hooking up the bottle again with all the burners closed incl. the side burner and the infa red. It will work o.k. then

The temp/flame on my weber grill won't get hotter


Hello,

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.
