Question about Grilling

1 Answer

Only two of 5 burners will work at any one time.

On this 5 burner propane grill I can light up to two burners and they work fine. If I light a third, the flames drop 75%. Even if I turn off all but two burners the low gas flow rate continues. Any two will work fine and lighting any third will start the problem. FWIW the side burner and rotesserie burner work ok and have no impact on the problem.

Your problem lays in one of two area's.
Either your regulator needs adjusted or most likely it is your LP tank

Look in the tank fitting for a small brass ring It will have 2 small slots on either side. This ring can back off over time and then will not allow the male fitting to fully depress the valve in the tank thus reducing your gas flow. I have had this happen on several tanks a bit of caution and a small flat bladed screw driver has always fixed the issue

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!!

First two burners work fine but when I turn on third burner (back) it cuts out the whole grill on the Weber genesis


This is very common with faulty regulators. The regulator is located on the hose (it is a metal silver disc located at the end of the hose where the hose attaches to the propane tank.)

To replace the hose and regulator, you need to detach the hose from the grill. Your local grill store should have replacement hose and regulators.


Hope this helps.

The flame coming out of the burner bars is small


May likely be low on propane or propane tank gate valve not opened far enough. Otherwise sounds like faulty regulator.

Second and third burner burns with a low flame. Burner closest to gas supply works as usual.


This problem can be caused by a number of things. Is this a new grill? If not, is this a new problem?

First -Check to see if the fuel hose is bent or kinked.
• Make sure the grill area is clear of dust.
• Make sure the burner and orifice are clean.
• Check for spiders and insects.
• The regulator has a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a leak. This safety device can be triggered without a gas leak. To reset the safety device, turn all burners "OFF" and close the Liquid Propane cylinder valve. Disconnect the regulator from the Liquid Propane cylinder and wait 1 minute. Reconnect the regulator to the Liquid Propane cylinder and slowly open the valve until the valve is fully open. Light all burners and observe the temperature.

Weak Flames on Propane Grill


It is possible that your burners are clogged. Clean the burner ports with a paperclip (not a toothpick).
