Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill

1 Answer

I recently refilled the gas for my grill. No problems experienced the next couple of grill sessions. Now, when you have both front and back burners on max heat, it is not heating up to capacity. It is maxing out at 325. Any suggestions? Thanks-

I am smelling propane at the cooking surface when I turn the burner knob to the ignite position. I have been unable to determine the source of the leak. We've had the grill for a couple of years and have...


When the knob is in the ignite position, the gas should be coming out of the burners at a rate sufficient enough to light. It's normal to smell it before the igniter (either electric or push-button) ignites the gas.
If you recently moved the grill with the internal parts still inside it, it's quite possible the burner tubes have become loose in the holders. They are quite easy to remove because they are a commonly replaced component. Remove the grates and flavorizer bars according to your manual, and you should be able to reach in and check the position and snugness of the burner tubes.
Make sure you close the propane valve and disconnect the tank before doing this. Also, don't smoke when working on your grill. :)

Propane grill wont ignite


Well, it sounds like your grill is experiencing vapor lock. Vapor lock is basically air caught in the gas line and there is a relatively easy method to fix this. I want you to try this method and tell me what you get, ok? First, open the tank's valve, then open the burner valve and light the grill. Immediately after you see a blue flame, turn off the tank's valve, count to five and then close the burner valve. Repeat this procedure three times, the problem should clear itself.

If you are still experiencing problems, the regulator may be faulty and needs to be tested next, so go get a new regulator from your Lowe's and run the procedure again. If after all this, you are still experiencing the problem, let me know here. Good luck!

I have a charbroil, advantage series grill. It isn't lighting.


How rusted are the burners? It is possible there is rusted metal blocking the gas ports. I don't have enough information from you regarding the problem...do you hear the gas flowing when you turn the burner open and the gas bottle is open?

Go to your user's manual, there should be an illustrated parts list. From there you can order new burners...you can also do this at Char-Broil's website.

Burner replacement is easy: take the grills out, then remove the flame tamers (the tent looking thing that sits over the burner to prevent flame-ups), the burners are screwed in to the grill at the back, remove the screws then grab the burner, pull towards the back of the grill and then up...this will disengage it from the gas valve in the front of the grill. Putting in a new one is the exact revers of this procedure...just make sure when you put the new ones in you make sure the burner's gas intake is connected to the valve at the front of the grill. Once done, you should be good to go.

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....

Flame Shooting out the front


You clearly have a gas leak. Inspect the suspect area for loose connections like the gas delivery pipe to the burner assembly. Try to reconnect them. If there is a hole in it you can use some muffler repair adhesive but I would just get a new part. Often the company will send you free parts as a good gesture to assure encourage repeat business. Check out the links below. The second one offers free shipping.

The entire 4 gas burners do not get hot


here is the link to brinkmann.net so you can contact them directly.

Now, the most common problem on all recent gas grills is that the regulator in the gas hose now has a safety feature which prevents it from leaking. Sometimes this feature gets stuck.

Unscrew your propane tank from the regulator, tap the regulator a couple of times and reattach it. This may solve your problem. If not, use the link above.

My weber gas grill will not heat up past 300F


Hi John,

I just experienced the same exact problem ! I just bought a brand new Weber E-310 a 3 burner grill.
After I seasoned it up with cooking oil,I turned all the burners to high, opened the tank and clicked electrnic button several times , the grill was on then I went inside, I came out about an half-hour later and it was saying around 275 degrees..
I looked into my manual and there is a gas limit control valve that shuts down gas flow, when it thinks there is too much gas flow.

Sloution;
Turn the propane gas knob to off
Turn the gas grill knobs to Off.
Click the igniter several times to clear out any gas.
Then unscrew the regulator from the tank,( I then blew into the tank hole and regulator),
Screw back on the regulator to the propane tank.
I then clicked igniter again couple of times.
Now open your propane tank.
Then turn on front burner while clicking igniter, this will lite 1st burner.
Then turn 2nd burner on low then to high.
And if you have 3rd burner or more, turn low then to high!

John I did this and my grill went to 600 plus in a few minutes!!

The problem was turning the gas grill knobs on first then opening the tank then lighting...
You have to open propane tank with knobs off, THEN AS SOON AS YOU TURN ON 1ST KNOB, YOU MUST IGNITE ...

Burner replacement


If you ermove the control panel on the fom you should be able to slide the gas manifold back a little thus putting the nozzle into the burners.

The manifold has a couple of screws at the sides

Low burners, low heat


If you turn on the gas too fast with the newer tan systems, it can make the system think it has a leak and slows the gas flow down. Use proper start up procedures. Call Weber to walk you through them.
