If you're not getting any gas at all to the burner and you have a full tank pf LPG ... Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Now, turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open try lighting the burner. If lights, turn it up to the highest setting. Does the flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

If you were getting gas to the burner and the ignitor wasn't sparking, pull the wire of the needle like pin on the bottom of the piezo spark ignitor. Then slide it back On. That should solve the sparkless problem.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

Why won't my Weber grill ignite after installing a


Disclaimer- be careful when working with gas. Starters in gas grills are just about novelty anymore. Often, they only light 1/3rd or 1/4th of the burners and they usually stop working within one grilling season. I recommend using a wand lighter. Try to light just one burner but if doesn't light in 5 to 7 seconds, turn the gas off and wait to try again. Incidentally, you are turning the gas on at the tank, right? You should hear it when you turn the burner on.

Model Q200, Propane model Get no flame on the burner. Apparently, getting no gas. Something seems to be stopped up. What to do?


Whether you're using a 20 Lb Propane Grill Tank or a screw in gas canister, the solution to the problem is the same .

1. Be sure you have enough gas in the tank or canister to maintain proper ignition.

2, If the above checks out OK. Turn the LP tank valve OFF or if you're using a screw-on canister
turn the gas valve OFF.

3. Disconnect the hose from the tank or unscrew and remove the gas canister.

4. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank or reattach the canister to the gas valve.

5. Open the gas valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow). Once the valve is full open, light
the burner & turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct?
If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

if the above didn't solve the problem, you will either need to replace the Hose/Regulator Assembly or the Gas Valve/ Canister Holder. The Hose/Regulator Assembly you can pickup from any home center or hardware store that sell grills & accessories for about $30.00. If it's the Gas Valve/Canister Holder, you will have to purchase that from Weber or from Factory Appliance Parts http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/gasgrillparts/brands/weber/q200.html Part # WEB4195 ($29.99) The adapter hose is also available there if you want to make it a one stop shop for $32.99

I hope ths helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Grilling!!

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.

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.

Replace the regulator to get your burners to work you can get that at Home Depot, call Weber to get the other part, if your grill is under warranty you may get it Free!
