Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill

1 Answer

My grill is a Genesis Silver B. The front burner ignites but the middle and back burner will not. I took off the tubes and can't see where anything is plugged or restricted. I can hear gas through the brass fittings connected to the gas manifold for all three burners.

I believe your model Weber has a Cross Over Tube Burner , on the left side of the interior of the grill, just above the middle and back burner. If that's clogged or needs replacing, that's more than likely the culprit. As, it won't carry gas to those two burners. It is easily replaceable, if necessary.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it. You can download and print it for future reference.

My back burners wont light but my front two will genesis silver edition


If the Cross Over Tube/Burner is clogged, the ignition flame can't get to the last 2 burners to light them. To check this, light the front 2 burners using the ignitor button and try match lighting the back burners. If they match light, that indicates that the Cross Over Tube is clogged. You will need to remove it to clean it properly. Which can be a chore in itself. Be careful removing it, because if it's rusted, it may break.

Hope this helped you, Kevin and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a 2005 Weber Genesis Silver propane grill. The first and third burners work fine, but the middle burner will not ignite. I have cleaned it and still no flame in the middle. I'm about to order...


Jeanne - Did you remove the burner to clean? If not. you weren't able to clean the Venturi Valve, which is part of the burner. Spiders love to get in the Venturi Valve & build a nest. When that happens it stops the gas to that burner. I suspect, that may be the problem. The Venturi Valve, is part of the burner (the open end part) that's closest to you, when you face the front of the grill. It will look like 2 slots (one on each side) cut out of the burner tube, where it fits over the burner orifice. But, you can't see it, without removing the burner. An old tooth brush works well to clean it.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Problem with gas getting to the front burner


Follow manufacturer's recommendation in resetting the excess flow safety device....(Turn burners and LP cylinder off...Disconnect regulator on cylinder. Turn both knobs to high for at least one minute...Then turn them to off...reconnect the regulator to the LP tank...Turn LP valve VERY slowly (30 seconds) until fully opened..then start the grill in the usual manner. ALWAYS TURN THE LP TANK OFF WHEN DONE USING THE GRILL....
