You may have to recheck the tank for full. If you forgot to turn off the tank after the last time you used the grill, the tank could have leaked down. I always keep a spare full tank for just those types of problems. If the tank is full, then the regulator may have a problem. That grill should be able to get over 300 degrees.

I thoroughly cleaned my Weber Genesis Silver A and have a full tank of gas. It won't get hotter than 250-300 degrees. Flames are blue.


You might have air block. When turning off the grill, leave one burner on and shut the tank valve.
When grill cools, close the remaining valve. When restarting the grill, open the tank valve, then the start burner, then the igniter. When first burner is going, open remaining two valves to preheat the grill.

This has worked on two different grills.

I have a Webber Q Family BBQ for about 2 - 3years. I noticed say last 6 months that the burners are not working properly and the grill is not hot enough ie take 3 times longer to cook a steak etc. I read...


OK, it sounds to me that when you changed the propane tank, you may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Doing so causes the built-in excess flow valve to check, which only allows a trickle of gas through. Do this: Turn off the gas tank, disconnect it and drain any remaining gas from the grill by opening a valve to a burner. Close the grill valve and then reconnect the tank. Very slowly open the tank valve and try lighting a burner again and see it that solves the problem. Douglas

Gas is barely flowing-used to hear hiss before I lit. Tried replacing pressure valve and got a new tank of gas. Also disassembled manifold and cleaned out all burners.


I had the same problem years ago with an old charbroil and ended up fixing by replacing the threaded female gas connector on the regulator with one of the old style male inside threaded type. This is the connector that connects the hose/regulator to the propane tank.

New webber will not start


Hello,
Ok, let's tackle the obvious things first. New grill with new tank... so was the tank filled? Did they purge it before they filled it? Did you turn the tank valve on very slowly? Were all the grill knobs turned to off when you turned on the gas tank? Try closing the propane tank valve, disconnecting it and reconnecting it. Then very slowly turn it on and light one burner at a time at turn to low heat. Then light additional burners the same way and adjust flame as needed after all are lit. Hope this helps! Douglas

Genesis Silver B Grill: grill won't heat past 350 or so. put a new regulat...


An odd thing with many propane gas grills is how the regulator functions. If the tank is opened too fast the regulator over-adjusts and delivers no gas. Try this: Turn tank off and open all burner controls. This should clear the line of any gas. Close burner controls and open tank very slow. Now lite and temp should go up.

Genesis s310 stainless grill. Does not fully light.


Regulator is not bad, as I stated before new valves are designed to reduce gas flow if valve is opened to fast. This is so if grill catches on fire, the tank will shut itself off, thus propane will stop flowing causing fire to extinguish itself.
