Weber Grilling - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
What is the best way to clean the grill?
use a good wire brush on the burners each time you use it before and after cooking. every season take the grill grates and flare reducers out and clean them well with a wire brush and or steel wool and clean out any residue in side the grill. make sure the grease catcher gets cleaned often as needed. blow out the gas manifolds with air in the spring to remove spider webs or insect webs etc. this should keep your grill working well for 10-15 years. replace the grates or flare plates when needed.also lightly clean the burners when you have the grill taken apart with steel woll then blow them out as well to keep all the openings clear. happy grilling.
Very low flame, like very little gas is getting thru, tank is ful
Okay, what you are dealing with is called "vapor-lock". The way these grills need to be turned off is, close the tank valve first and after the burners go out, then turn the burners off. The way you are doing it is trapping the gas and you are getting a weak flame. Fortunately this is an easy fix. First, light the grill by turning the gas valve open, then turn the burners on to light the grill...as soon as that is done, close the gas valve on the tank then turn the burners off. Repeat this procedure until you get a good flame. If this procedure hasn't fixed the problem after the third time, you need a new regulator and regulators are easy to find in any home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot.
My weber Baby Q grill has a low flame.
Agree with rjmbridge. I called the Weber support people and was told that there is a built in safety feature on the regulator that will cause the flame to burn at a low setting if the gas within the extension tube to the large tank and regulator is not allowed enough time to equalize. They suggested turning on the gas from the tank very slowly, allow about 2 minutes with the temperature control knob turned off, then turn the temp knob on and light. This worked for me.
I have a Weber gas grill, and I just replaced the
Don't worry, you'll be grilling in no time, if you follow these instructions:
1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the grill's hose from the propane tank and wait 5 minutes.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank's gas valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow).
Once the valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burner and turn it to HIGH. Do both flame heights look normal?
If so, you solve the problem! Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.
Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!
How do I adjust the side burner flame on a Weber grill?
The burner has a fixed orifice, but there may be an adjustable air shutter (to adjust more or less air) at the end of the venturi tube that inserts over the orifice. If not, also try removing the gas valve knob and see if there is a small screw inside the shaft that you can adjust the flames. Most stoves have these. Also be sure the burner hasn't been spilled on. it may just need to be cleaned for a proper flame.

Steel with either a black porcellian finish or a chrome finish. Depends on the model.
Stainless Steel or Cast Iron is my personal favorite. It wears extremely well and is easy to clean.
Can I replace burner tubes
Yes you can replace the burner assy...go to walmart or your local bbq parts house...look at your burner first to get an idea of what it looks like before you go to purchase
