Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill

1 Answer

The crossover tube won't ignite past the first few inches from the front element. I have tapped it to clear it, cleared teh little side holes and even ran a wire through it (as a few of the holescollapsed together when i started cleaning it. I could buy a new crossover, but want to make sure it is not because of a weak tank or something. Tank is new and the other elements ignite with a match.

If the cross over tube burner has rusted to the point of collapse is a pretty good indicator that it needs to be replaced. I personally, don't see in correlation between LP tank and the collapse of the crossover tube burner. A weak tank, as you called it, would not have any bearing to it.

Now, if you're match lighting the other burners and the flame height remains low, even when turned to high. That's a problem with the grills regulator, which can easily be solved.

Turn the 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), until the valve is fully open. Light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner to HIGH. If the flame height now, looks correct, light the remaining burners the same way. If all the flame heights have returned to normal, you solved that problem.

if it didn't solve the problem, you need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly and the crossover tube. The hose/regulator assembly can be purchased at any home center or hardware store, that sells gas grills and accessories. Tank the old one with you for comparison purposes. The Crossover Burner can be purchased from Weber or Factory Appliance Parts http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/

Hope this aids you in troubleshooting and solving the problem. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

Lint screen won't go down all teh way.


take the metal duct out that the lint filter slides down into,stick the metal strip through the hole in the side of the duct so that when it's in the bottom part of strip is flush up against the back side wall of duct and it should have like a half inch or so sticking out of the hole,but before you stick it in clean out the duct and with a thin long screw driver open the plastic cover that the filter slides through and poke out any lint in the slots that the filter slides in.so unplug the dryer,remove the bottom panel of dryer,remove the lint filter and screws that hold the lint filter duct in place they are 1/4 inch head screws,clean out the duct and the side slots up above the duct in the plastic area then slide the metal strip into the hole so that the bottom part that you first put into the hole fits flush up against the back inside wall of duct and the top of strip will be flush to the outside wall of duct and like around 1/2 inch or so still showing.hope this helps

Hi, Can anyone assist me. I have a problem with my was-machine. It stops working after 2a3 minutes. And gives me the error codes H and F. Looking forward to hear from you.


Hope this helps someone else. Finally fixed mine and it was the little black tubing going to the pressure switch. It took a while to figure this out because the diagnostic test did not bring up any error so I thought the black tube was fine, but I was wrong. My washer is the GHW9150PW4 "Costco model". Mine would start a wash load and do pre-wash cycle just fine, but about 8-10 minutes into the cycle the machine would fill up with more water and the water level would rise up too far (almost three inches up the window) and then do the emergency shut down H-F error. Here's how I fixed it:
I opened the top and looked at the little black tubing going to the pressure switch and it looked fine & felt brand new too, so I didn't think it was a bad tube, but it was. Upon closer inspection, I saw that the clear dump water tube looked like it had been crunched a few times againset the side of the machine and had a bit of wear, and slight crease like it had been smashed against the side of the machine;(probably when a cycle ran unbalanced). Look closely with a flashlight and maybe you will find, like me, that the washer --when out of balance-- would occasionally hit and rub those two tubes. The front and back of the washer has cement-like casing that is a little rough and will definitely smash that tube. Feel down there where the washer may hit the tube. There should be a clip that keeps both tubes clamped to the back of the washer so the tubes are kept away from the washer drum rubbing on them. The plastic clip on mine was broken off, and the tubes were hanging there to the side of the washer drum. The tube didn't have a hole, and looked good but was really warn out where it was rubbing and smashed down thin in this area (probably had a tiny pin hole leak or the smashed tube couldn't hold the correct pressure--thus not telling the machine when it had the right amount of water, overfilling & shutting down with an H-F error code and draining the washer immediately). This is an emergency shut down to prevent the washer from overfilling when it reaches 10.5 gallons of water (per manual). I cut the bad tubing section out (about 3/4 of an inch piece of bad tubing hose) and used a tubing connector barb (Home Depot mini sprinkler tube connector) to reconnect the tubing back together. I tied a string on the tube before cutting so it wouldn't fall down below and behind the washer. This has fixed my problem perfectly and have no more errors. I'm going go to the appliance parts store and buy a new plastic clip and new black tube to keep the hoses tied to the back and out of the way of the moving drum(the splicing worked fine but I might as well get a new tube while the washer top is open and accesible).
Hope this helps someone else out. I assume by the amount of forums talking about this error this may be happening to a lot of older machines. I found this fix on another blog--thank goodness--cuz everyone kept talking about the circut board $$$, or $50 pressure switch, or flow meter (my machine doesn't have a flow meter - the GHW9100 has that) and I almost called in an appliance repair guy. Saved a few hundred dollars here and fixed it myself. :)Hope this helps someone else. Finally fixed mine and it was the little black tubing going to the pressure switch.

Watrer leaking on floor on freezer side from hole on inside on back bottom


The hole you see is the drain tube that takes the water from a defrost cycle down to the drain pan and over time they can get clogged. What cloggs them? It is possible something fell in it but highly more likely that mildew, or mold in the drain pan has blocked it(gross I know). Best way to repair this problem is a turkey baster and some bleach. Get the water at your tap as hot as possible and fill a bowl. Lay some towels on the floor in front of the freezer door, set your bowl,bleach and baster down and prepare to work. Use the turkey baster to continue to blast hot water into that little hole in the back of the freezer until it quits coming into the freezer and starts going down the hole. Once you have cleared the ice in the line poor a small amount of bleach into your bowl with the remaining water and inject a few blasts of your bleachwater mixture to kill anything that may be down in that pan and then make it a habit of doing this once a year to keep the pan clean.

Smeg fride freezer leaking


HI Mark,
The evaporator drain is blocked causing the defrost water to pool, freeze and then leak onto your floor.
Clear out the freezer, then use a hammer to break up the ice on the floor. Now remove the rear panel. You'll see more ice build up. Don't use the hammer on it! (Too close to the coils for comfort) Use a hair dryer to warm up/melt the ice below the coils.
You'll see the drain hole now. Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.

Refrigerator side stops cooling


Drain stopped up.
Take out the bottom drawer in the freezer, look at the back wall and you should get a partial view of the bottom of the cooling coils. Directly below these coils is the drain area. You may need a light to see the drain hole. If this area is covered with ice then a hair dryer will help clear this so you can see the drain hole.
I have some O2 tubing that I put down the drain to clear any cloggs. Also, I seal the top of the drain hole around the O2 tubing with tape and use the air from my lungs to clear the drain tube. Pour a little water down this drain hole to make sure it’s clear.

Maytag Model ERSW22A side by side fridge periodically leaks water at the front of the fridge. Water appears to come from inside the freezer compartment. This only happens every few days, or once a day...


sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
