Question about Weber Genesis Gold B Grill

Gas grill not lighting

I have a Weber Genesis gas grill, about a year old. I just replaced an empty tank of gas. Hooked it up and the burner won't light. I neither here or smell gas coming out of the jets. I closed and reopened the tank valve a number of times. I unhooked the line from the tank and there was a wooshing sound which to me means that gas was leaving the tank. Is there a blockage in the gas line or somewhere along that operation? To double check, I turned on the tank valve and the burner controls (3 of them), closed the lid, and let it sit or a minute. I then turned the valves off and lifted the lid and still could smell no gas. Thanks... Wayne

    I have the exact same problem and mine is two years old.

    When I turn on the gas, even though the tank is full and gas is coming from it, the gas does not reach the tubes and the bbq does not light. No gas gets to the tubes

Sounds like you have a faulty regulator. If you replace this make sure that you get a replacement of the same size.

I need to convert my weber genesis b to nat. gas. Have the hose. bought a replacement manifold part and installed but doesnt seem to work. STEVE 269-600-8111


Steve, you also need to change the burner(s) orifices to Natural Gas orifices. Natural gas won't work with Propane orifices.

Good luck and Happy Grilling!!

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.

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.

Gas Not Flowing


Try this. Turn tank off, open all three burners for a minute or 2. Close burners. Open tank very slowly. Open primary burner, (usually the front burner) and try to relight. Should work, but if not check that valve is secured to tank and check for leaks with soapy water.

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.

Very low flame, like very little gas is getting thru, tank is ful


Okay, what you are dealing with is called "vapor-lock". The way these grills need to be turned off is, close the tank valve first and after the burners go out, then turn the burners off. The way you are doing it is trapping the gas and you are getting a weak flame. Fortunately this is an easy fix. First, light the grill by turning the gas valve open, then turn the burners on to light the grill...as soon as that is done, close the gas valve on the tank then turn the burners off. Repeat this procedure until you get a good flame. If this procedure hasn't fixed the problem after the third time, you need a new regulator and regulators are easy to find in any home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot.
