Using a larger size bottle w/converter hose?  If so, its probably a regulator issue.  I have had same problem for over three years.  If you don't open the gas very slowly it trips a safety which lowers the pressure to nada.  He'll need to shut it down and reconnect following the instructions available on the Weber website.  Mine still only resets 50 percent of my attempts.  Great grill when it works, but what a pain.

I recently solved this problem with my grill by replacing the o-ring in the grill end of the converter hose. Prior to that the burner would go out when the large bottle and converter hose was used, but worked fine with a small bottle connected directly to the regulator.

When I try to light my brand new Q300, it won't ignite. I can hear that the tank is on and gas is being sent to the grill. However, it doesn't light. When I shut the grill off and the gas tank...


What you have is delayed ignition. It's being caused by the gas regulator. It is solvable, though.

Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

Once the valve is fully open, light 1 burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and does th eflame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner the identical same way. Now, to both flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly. And always light the burners with the Lid/Hood Open.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly. Since your grill is brand new, the Hose/Regulator Assembly will be covered under Warranty. Have your Proof of Purchase handy and call Weber 1-800-446-1071. Also, if you haven't done so already, register your grill before calling http://help.weber.com/register/ even if you don't need a new Hose/Regulator Assembly.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem.

When I turn on the gas to my grill, not enough gas comes through the inside of the grill to heat the grill. The tank is full, all of the grates are new. It will only heat to around 200 degrees


Hi,
That would be a regulator problem, assuming that the gas tank ain't almost shot...
Get a new regulator and that will get you that burger...

Grill won't heat up above 200 DEGREES with a nearly full tank


Try replacing the regulator and hose, not very expensive and fairly easy to do. If that doesn't help, let me know.

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.

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.

The new style2_bing.gif OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem
IF not you might want to remove the cap (white) on your regulator and try slowly adjusting the regulator, make small adjustments and try the BBQ My Weber if I set the front and back burners to MED I get right at 350 degrees in 60 degree outdoor temps.

The grill only reaches 200 degrees


PROBLEM
Barbecue temperature only
reaches 250° to 300° in the HIGH
position.

CHECK
The excess flow safety device,
which is part of the barbecue to
cylinder connection, may have
activated.

CURE
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 on slowly. Refer to
“Lighting Instructions”.
