Sounds like you have a gas leak near the knob.

Weber Spirit?... | Answered on Sep 02, 2017


Sounds like you need to replace the igniter. If the gas lights with a match, there's nothing wrong with the gas bottle. line or burner.

Weber Baby Q... | Answered on Sep 02, 2017


Let the gas run a few seconds before clicking (and stand back). If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the starter.

Select the biggest nail you can find that will fit through the original burner holes and ream out the gunk.

We need a bit more info. Gas or charcoal? How are you trying to light it?

Weber Genesis... | Answered on Sep 02, 2017


Not sure what you're asking, but if you want to know how to get the hottest fire, open all the vents. "Best heat" doesn't really tell us what you want. Best heat for what?

If you can light it with a match or lighter, the gas nozzle is working fine. You may have to replace your igniter. My Performer has the same problem, so I suspect the original igniter is a piece of cr*p. You may want to look into an aftermarket replacement. Of just use a fireplace lighter like I do.

You could try sticking something like stainless steel wire through every other hole (or all of them) in your burner to partially clog the gas output. Depending on the configuration of your burner, you could thread it through both sides and twist-tie it down underneath.

You may be emptying the chimney too soon. Give it time to ignite all the coals. If you spread out the coals too soon, they will not support each other to stay lit. You also need enough coals for them to ignite each other if one goes out. Every briquette should be touching at least one other unless you are doing a long, low-slow roast where you have a separate fire going to heat replacement coals.

The plastic cup melted because it was touching the hot plates and not because of the hot oil!

It is a poor design but with careful use can be fully functional, plastic is used to keep the cost of this budget product down.
