Check burner kit inside grill. Spray connections with soapy water and watch for bubbles. Do not leave on for long because of gas build up.

Can not get two burners to light


Before you do anything else, take a pipe cleaner or a special brush on a flexible shaft that they sell in home stores and clean out the venturi tubes on all burners. Tiny spiders like to build nests in these tubes which can keep burners from working even when you try to start them with a handheld lighter. That can be dangerous, because it will build up the level of gas in the grill.

If that doesn't solve your problem, and your grill has electronic ignition with only one igniter for all the burners, then the transfer channel at the back of the burners is blocked with soot or corroded, and the flame from the burner with the igniter can't travel to the others. Clean or repair the channel.

Some grills have an igniter on each burner. In that case the burners that don't light may have broken or blocked igniters that you'll have to replace or clean. In the meantime, use one of those butane fireplace lighters to light the balky burners.

I just purchased a pre-assembled E-310 Weber gas grill from Home Depot. Upon Start up I noticed the flame is very high on each burner (three to 5 inches above the deflectors on high). Also, I notice n


Hey Anon..
WOA...compressed propane is not something to mess around with..I would go back to the Home Depot and talk to the store manager,,(take your receipt and all other paper work for proof), ask him who to see about your issue.. tell him you are afraid to use your NEW grill.(Start at the top!).. you spent good $$$$ and you deserve an answer..or a new grill..

I had to change the burner but now the igniter will not automatically ignite when pressing the button. What should I do?


The piezo ignitor head my need to be adjusted so that it is closer to the burner. If it is not sparking at all, check for a loose wire at the piezo ignitor and trace it back to the ignition button. Often times, it will simply lost it's ground. To resolve this, carefully pull the ignitor wire off the piezo pin and the push it back on. Do the same thing on the back of ignitor button.

If none of the above solves the problem, it's time to replace the ignition systems. The parts are inexpensive and can be purchased on-line directly from Char-Broil http://www.charbroil.com/Store/ReplacementParts.aspx or from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. These will be universal fit model ignitors .

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

My grill does not exceed 300 degrees. The rear burner is barely lit, it sputters with a blue flame. The Front and middle burners run well, blue flame no yellow. I changed the regulator with one from home...


Bypass valve need reset. All grills made after 1996 have this valve.
  • Close the LP tank valve
  • Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
  • Open the grill lid
  • Turn the LP tank valve until it is completely open
  • Wait 90 seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.
  • Turn remaining burners to High
  • Close the lid.
  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes
I called Weber and a rep walk me through it.

Follow manufacturer's recommendation in resetting the excess flow safety device....(Turn burners and LP cylinder off...Disconnect regulator on cylinder. Turn both knobs to high for at least one minute...Then turn them to off...reconnect the regulator to the LP tank...Turn LP valve VERY slowly (30 seconds) until fully opened..then start the grill in the usual manner. ALWAYS TURN THE LP TANK OFF WHEN DONE USING THE GRILL....

I need the assembly instructions for a Four Seasons Gas Grill


I purchased this grill and assembled it yesterday. I noted the area that is providing confusion as it is wrong. Please follow the following instructions. It is quite simple when you have a background in electrical and electronics engineering. These directions should translate my knowledge into step by step instructions for all.

1. Attach the two thinner wires with two terminals on each wire, from the front of the grill head to the larger (Input or Control) terminals on the igniter assembly. These two wires are from the push to turn micro switches on each of the burner control knobs on the grill head. Attach the two smaller terminals on these thinner wires to the micro switch on the side burner control connected as part of the regulator and hose assembly.

2. Attach the three thicker wires from the front of the grill head to three of the six smaller (output) terminals on the igniter assembly. These wires go to the igniters themselves.

3. Connect the two thicker wires from the rear of the grill head to two of the six output terminals on the igniter assembly. The small wire is for the igniter on the bottom infrared burner and the larger, thermally insulated wire, connects to the igniter on the rear infrared burner.

4. Connect the lead from the side burner to the remaining small output terminal on the igniter assembly.

5. Mount the igniter to the front of the right side shelf by removing the battery cover and hexagonal nut. Insert the shaft through the hole in the front of the right side shelf and secure with the hexagonal nut. Replace the battery cap. Do not install the battery at this time.

6. Mount the side burner control by inserting the long end of the control into the side burner assembly. Attach the control to the front of the right side shelf with the two screws held in the front of the control assembly. NOTE: You must remove the screws from the control assembly and insert them through the Off/On bezel and front panel of the right side shelf before screwing them back into the control assembly. Install the control knob for the right side shelf. Verify that the connections to the side burner control micro switch made in step 1 are still intact.

7. Insert the battery into the igniter assembly by removing the batter cap and inserting the AA size battery with the positive (pointed) end out. Replace the battery cap.

8. Test the igniter assembly prior to installing the gas tank and installing the “Flame Tamers” and grates by pushing in on each burner control knob in turn. Listen for a popping sound and look for sparks at each burner.

I hope this helps.
