Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill

1 Answer

My weber genesis silver starts up, but doesn't get hot enough to cook the food. Seems like not enough flame out of either front or back burners. I tried Outting in a full propane tank, but that didn't solve the problem. Any suggestions?

Try these steps in order.

  1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
  2. Disconnect the gas line from the tank
  3. Open the grill lid
  4. Turn all control valves to high
  5. Wait for about a minute
  6. Turn all control valves to off
  7. Reconnect the gas line to the tank
  8. SLOWLY turn on the gas at the tank
  9. Light the grill normally
  10. Your grill should now heat normally

My weber grill doesn't seem to be getting enough gas thruogh the jet to heat to proper temp.


The most likely problem is that food drippings have clogged some of the pin-hole gas outlets in the burner tubes. If those are clean and open, then either your propane tank is not releasing the gas or the controls on the grill are not releasing the gas. If you look at the flame level, probably best done with the flavorizer bars removed, and they are all the same with the controls on high, then it it probably the tank valve. If the flame heights are different, the lower one(s) are the ones where the control valve(s) are not working and need to be replaced. Good luck!

Two burners run too hot with yellow flame.


Hello,
It sound like your back burners have a partial blockage or possibly are rusting or falling apart or have cracked seams. Remove the cooking grids and burner shields, and examine the burners closely. If you can't find a blockage inside (spider web, bugs nest, etc) then their condition is probably deteriorating. Let us know if you need more assistance.

Burner flames don't get hot, like not enough gas.


Try this, Turn off the tank. Disconnect it. Reconnect it. Turn tank valve back on very slowly and then see if you get bigger flame size.

Flame up & really bad hot spot , flavor bars keep catching on fi


Remove the cooking grids and briquette grid if applicable, so you can see the burners when lit. It should be an even blue flame thoughout. If not, you may need a cleaning or replace burner(s).

How do i know the coals are still hot and cooking my food and im not sure ive placed them right in weber


Pile the charcoal up in the center of the weber to light them. Wait until they all turn white, most people don't wait long enough. Then spread them out in one layer on the bottom. Put on the grate and cook.

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.

Uneven heat from burners


I'm experiencing the same problem, the left side has the least heat, and it seems to be getting way worse over time.  Has anyone found a solution for this yet?
