Question about Weber Baby Q Grill

2 Answers

My weber Baby Q grill has a low flame.

Hi,

My baby Q grill has a low flame no matter what the setting is. I refilled the propane tank (it was only half empty). I just took of the hose and stuck a pin in the tiny hole to clear it (there was no blockage). What else should I do?

    I have the same problem. My grill lights but the temp nevers gets above 200 degrees. Had the tank purged and refilled but this did not help. Grill works fine with small propane cylinder. Any thoughts

Agree with rjmbridge. I called the Weber support people and was told that there is a built in safety feature on the regulator that will cause the flame to burn at a low setting if the gas within the extension tube to the large tank and regulator is not allowed enough time to equalize. They suggested turning on the gas from the tank very slowly, allow about 2 minutes with the temperature control knob turned off, then turn the temp knob on and light. This worked for me.

We had the same problem. A local hardware store suggested that we turn the gas tank on very, very , very slowly. Then wait at least 15 seconds before trying to light grill. It works for us. good luck

Baby weber flame will not adjust to different levels stays on high flame even when we turn the knob


You will need to replace the control knob assembly. Which includes the tank hook up & regulator. Contact Weber Customer Service @ 1-800-446-1071 for this part.

Hope this helped you.

I have a Weber gas grill, and I just replaced the propane tank, yet when I ignite it on the Start/High setting, very little flame is produced. This is the first time in 5 years or so that I've...


Don't worry, you'll be grilling in no time, if you follow these instructions:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.

2. Disconnect the grill's hose from the propane tank and wait 5 minutes.

3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank's gas valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow).

Once the valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burner and turn it to HIGH. Do both flame heights look normal?
If so, you solve the problem! Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

I love,love,love my baby webber. I bought it when they first came out. I can only use the tall, blue propane bottle. I seen some where that they were using the short, wide, green one. My wire guide...


The easiest solution to this problem is to remove the screw securing the wire tank holder in place, and then just bend the holder a little bit wider so that it will fit the slightly larger 16 oz green tanks found in the camping section of most stores.

You can even buy buy a hose connector adapter for it so that you can hook it up to a large home barbeque type propane tank if you want. See the following consumer reviews of that unit for more details and ideas:

Cannot get good flame on the burner of my baby weber grill. I've tried cleaning it checked hose, tank, regulator, seems to have good flow, but low flame only, even when set in high????????


I had this problem with a brand new grill so it wasn't grease in the hose. Due to the new propane regulators you have to turn the propane tank on for at least a minute before turning the grill to light. Let the tank sit in the light position for five seconds and then you light the grill. This will keep air from getting into the intake hose and will keep your gas flame roaring high.

I was only able to get the grill up to 250 degrees before I found this fix posted on the Weber site. It is listed as the number one solution in the FAQ section.

Propane tank with regulator


You're fine using a regulator, just keeps the propane 'regulated' : ) Since you already have it, I'd try the one you have. I'd figure your regulator for the big tank is set for low pressure, really may be fine by itself, but the additional one at the Webber end won't hurt anything. This is a YMMV, try cheapest way first using what you have, not much of a problem to change to the other one if it doesn't work.

Gas grille won't light


I have a baby Weber grille. It can take a propane canister and/or use a regular size propane tank with the proper hose. In either case it doesn't appear that propane is getting through to the burner and as a result it won't light.
