Under the control panel, to the right of the cooking box is a sticker with model numbers, serial numbers, BTU rating, etc. It is not easy to find or read. I used a flashlight and read the numbers out loud for someone to write them down. The first 2 letters of the serial number are the date code.

Had trouble lighting weber Q, replaced regulator still will not light with igniter button, had plenty of spark . It will light manually with grill lighter but will have a small back blow of flames. Tired...

Are you using the valve-regulator or a conversion hose to a 20lb cylinder? a gas problem is different from an ignition problem. If an ignition issue the piezo module on that model has to have a good ground connection because cast aluminum will not ground at the electrode. make sure wires are tight and secure. Also check the "gap" at the tip of the electrode and adjust for strong blue spark. Most barbecues need the electrode gap adjusted when first installed. if an older model dirt and grease will interrupt the spark so make sure the tip of the electrode and area around it is clean -- burner and collector.

The igniter box inside the grill is rusting and disintegrating. I bought the Weber igniter kit at Home Depot, but it has a red push-button, and I can't see how to begin replacing the igniter under ...

I have provided 2 links for you. One is the Assembly Manual for the Genesis B 330
and the other is the Owners Manual. Both should prove invaluable to you, in replacing the Ignitor Button. You can download and print each manual for future reference.

Replacing the crossover ignition system in my weber genesis silver b grill. it has a propane tank. the small metal cover over the spark ignitor has rusted out.

What you're referring to is called a Collection Box. It traps gas so it will ignite. You can purchase a new one directly from Weber or from Appliance Factory Parts

Hope this helps you get the part you need. Happy Grilling!!

My weber spirit 310 igniter will not work. It does not click or make a spark. I have changed the battery. I did notice that the battery chamber was very corroded so I cleaned it out but still no click....

I suspect that the corrosion you found has taken it's toll. You will need to replace the the ignitor box.
if it's still under warranty, Weber may cover it. Either way, you can get the part from Weber on line. Make sure you have your Model #, Serial # of the Grill and the date and proof of purchase.

My grill became hard to light & now will not light. I took it apart and cleaned it & noticed that the box around the igniter is all coroded away. How does this get fixed?

In the case of your grill's ignitor control box, it will have to be replaced. You can order one online. directly from Weber. Just be sure that you have the Model # & Serial # available. It's an easy replacement to accomplish. The new ignitor control box will come with the instructions or you can find them in your Owners Manual.

Happy Grilling!

Weber gas grill will not ignite

you will probably have to get a new igniter or try to adjust the one you have. there is a little electrode on the igniter that needs to be clean and a certain distance away to work properly.
