3 burner - front and rear ignite,middle does not. Replaced all 3 burners. Still does not light. Suggestions?


It might be an igniter problem. It might be a problem with the gas tank (either empty or not releasing the gas). It could be a problem with the control valves or even with a safety mechanism that prevents relighting the grill after multiple tries because of a possible gas build-up. Make sure the gas tank is full and releasing gas - you should be able to hear a hissing noise in the burner compartment. If you can hear the noise then you need to check the igniter and make sure you are getting a spark, and that the spark is reaching the burner. If you can't hear a noise then either the control valves are the problem or the safety mechanism is operating. You can also call Weber and they are pretty good at helping you figure out the problem.

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!!

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...


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.

I now have a 3 burner weber gas grill and am thinking of buying a 2 burner weber gas grill - how do you use indirect cooking on the 2 burner grill - will there be one burner that is turned off under the...


Well, I personally, wouldn't want to go from a 3-burner to a 2-burner because I think Weber designed the 3-burner grill to perfection, and as you know, all you have to do is turn off the middle burner.

At any rate, indirect is harder with the two-burner because of the placement of the burners. You can try to put some 1" thick ceramic bricks directly on the flavorizer bars in the middle, or if you are using a rotisserie, put a pan under your meat.

My grill does not exceed 300 degrees. The rear burner is barely lit, it sputters with a blue flame. The Front and middle burners run well, blue flame no yellow. I changed the regulator with one from home...


Bypass valve need reset. All grills made after 1996 have this valve.
  • Close the LP tank valve
  • Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
  • Open the grill lid
  • Turn the LP tank valve until it is completely open
  • Wait 90 seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.
  • Turn remaining burners to High
  • Close the lid.
  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes
I called Weber and a rep walk me through it.

Second burner will not ignite on Weber grill


Its probably an obstruction in the burner. Take both the burners off and clean them inside and out with a brass brush. You need to clean them both, since the second burner is dependent on the first working properly.

Step by step procedures are in your manual. Go to http://weber.com/help/manuals.aspx to download it.
