Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill

What's the secret to removing the regulator? I can't seem to remove the hose from either end. It is clamped to the regulator and the main BBQ. My tanks are full, but there is no gas getting to the jets.

Can i get parts to convert my capn cook 4 burner bbq grill to lp


The BBQ's Galore grills are the only ones that are approved to be field converted. All you need a 4 LP Gas Burner Orifices and a Hose Regulator Assembly to hook to a LP Gas grill tank. You can buy the orifices from BBQ's Galore and the Hose/Regulator Assembly from any hardware store or home improvement center that sells grills & accessories for about $30.00. Gas grill burner orifices are pretty universal, so any LP Gas ones should work.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have an old but trusty MasterFlavour Char Broil LP Gas BBQ 4635801 with built in Accuflex 451-05 5/16" hose (1 psi max) and standard US/Canadian regulator but I am now in the UK and want to know...


Yes, Susan, you will need to change the Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can probably pick one up at any store that sells gas grills and accessories. I suggest that you take your old one with you for comparison purposes., when you go to purchase one. In the USA, the assembly runs about $30.00.

Happy Grilling!!

How to i take off my regulator on my blue ember bbq. FG50069 model clockwise or counter ?


The regulator is part of the Regulator/Hose Assembly. You won't be able to separate the regulator from the hose. You have to remove the whole assembly by turning the coupling connection at the grill head counterclockwise. I assume you won't to replace the regulator. If that's the case, you will have to purchase the whole regulator/hose assembly.They are not expensive and can be found at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take your old one with you for comparison.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

The flow gas coming from the burner is very slow. only heats up to less than 200 degrees. even the side burner is the same. i've cleaned it and changed tank. what is my next step?


It could be a defective LP gas regulator or a restriction somewhere in the gas line for the bbq. This can also happen if the propane tank is overfilled.

First make sure that the LP tank is not overfilled. If you open the bleeder hole on the tank(small screw next to the valve) there should be no liquids coming out. If liquid propane is coming out then the tank is overfilled. Keep the bleeder screw loose until the liquid disappears then tighten. Re-connect the tank and see if that fixes the problem.

Then inspect all the gas lines on the bbq. Make sure that there are no kinks or crushed lines.

Then take a look at the gas regulator. Try turning on all the burners then give the regulator a couple good taps on the housing with something solid. See if the burner changes size. If it does and then goes back down it could be the gas regulator. Also take a look at the regulator housing. There should be a very small hole on the housing and it might be labled "vent". Make sure that this little hole is not plugged with any debris or that can cause a low pressure problem. You can use a sewing needle to gently poke out the hole. You will know if it worked because the burners will become much higher. And you could also try disconnecting the hose and regulator assembly from the bbq then turn on the LP tank slowly with the regulator connected. You should get plenty of gas flow from the end of the hose. Then use your hand to block and release the flow a couple times to try and clear any debris that might stuck in the regulator.BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS!!! MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLEAR OF ANY SOURCES OF IGNITION BEFORE TRYING TO CLEAR THE REGULATOR. Then reconnect the hose regulator and tank to see if the problem is fixed. If you are getting very low flow from the hose with the regulator disconnected then it is probably a defective regulator. They are pretty standard and you can purchase a new LP hose and regulator assembly from most home improvement stores.

If the regulator checks out good then I would think that there is a restriction in the main gas line for the bbq after the regulator. You will need you dis-assemble the main line and blow it out with some compressed air to clear the restriction.

The rubber flexable hose for my Weber baby Q bbq is leaking. I have demantled it , but where can i buy a new hose? Thanks Andrew


Hello,
Take it to your local propane co and have them make up a new hose for you. Be sure to bring the hose and regulator, or just bring the whole grill with you, so they can see what you have. Some bbq hose ends don't have regular swivel brass fittings on them anymore, bit instead use a hose barb adapter to reattach directly to the grill. So I'd suggest bring it all just in case you have one of those kinds. Douglas

The heat on m Weber grill would not go above 250 degrees even when the grill was lit for 30+ minutes. I changed the gas supply hose and regulator & fixed the problem. The next time I used the grill...


The new style 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. Adjusting the regulator will take some time to get it right but If it is not your tank it is most likely your regulator out of adjustment

Removing old regulator


I presume you mean on a Q-series grill.
DIsconnect the hose or can.
remove the burner tube by removing the hex bolt holding it down to the bos next to the igniter and lifting that end and sliding the mixer tube out and away from the regulator.
Then pull the gas nob off. It takes a little force, but can be done. That exposes a brass nut that holds the regulator to the mounting plate. It has normal right-hand threads, so back it right off. Then, you can take the regulator/valve assembly right out the back of the mounting plate. The regulator and valve are connected with normal right-hand threads and come right apart. Use teflon tape when reassembling, and that brass nut goes cylinder-side (it's not a plain hex).
