The LP Grill tank's OPD Valve has locked up your regulator. To solve the problem turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose and turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner and turn it to high. Does the flame height now look correct? If so, you solved the problem.

If it didn't and the grill and tank were stored outside during the snowy winter. The grill's regulator may be frozen. In which case, soak a bath towel in hot water, ring it out and quickly wrap it around the regulator. If that was the problem, gas should start flowing again, in several minutes.

Hope this helped to solve your problem.

Won't start

Try clearing the venturri tube. Sometimes spiders will build webs inside the venturri tube, restricting the flow of propane to the burner. If the venturri tube is clear, try cleaning the individual ports on the burner itself. Grease, food debris, and rust can clog the burner ports restricting the flame from coming up. If neither of these work, you most likely have a faulty regulator and need to purchase a replacement regulator.

Hope this helps!

My book disk eject error using Mac mini with OS 10.6.2 Error states disk not ejected properly Exclamation in red hexigone The next time you connect the disk Mac os x will attempt to repair any damages on...

You may need a new Hard Drive. It sounds as if you have the old Mac. Mini. If so? look on line for Mac Mini 4,1 "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 (Mid-2010) you can find good deals on one, that would cost as much to repair your unit. eBay is one place to look

1 yr old baby playing with the remote and now there is no audio/sound coming from the TV. what can we do? I tried menu and audio settings, but nothing worked so far. we don't have any audio equipment...

Try the SAP button (the one you push for spanish on second track). Sometimes there can be a position where no sound comes out so a person can use a surround system etc.

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.

Ignite prob

You've got two different things going on.  First - the type of igniter used on your model does wear.  I have had mine for over 10 years and have gone through 3 such igniters - and I grill nearly 3 times per week over the 25 week "grilling" season where I live. Spring for the $12 part and just replace it. The other issue sounds like a clogged cross-over system.  I would remove the burners, including the cross-over bar on the far left side that connects them.  Clean the exterior with a stiff steel/brass brush and the inside with a bottle brush.  Make sure all the holes are clear to allow gas to flow easily - use a wooden tooth-pick to do this to make sure you don't change the size of the holes! Put that baby back together and I think you'll find you'll be good as new!
These grills are great.  Now, if Weber could only fix the uneven heat problem between the left and right side I'd REALLY be happy!  (I wish they would even just admit there IS a problem!)
Good luck and happy grilling.
