Before you go spending money on a new regulator give this a shot. It is weird but it worked for me.

Thanks! we had the same problem. My husband was ready to disassemble the whole grill. While I was searching for the problem on the web, your video came up on the search. I worked like a charm. My hubby just kept saying, (YAAAH!!!)

Thank a lot, it works great now.

It worked - thank you! We followed the instructions on the Weber site to no avail, replaced the regulator and no luck. Found your tip and took one last shot. Our 14 year old Silver C lives on!
Armando Rodriguez (1 year ago)
I tried this thank you very much. I had the exact same thing happen to me.
joemoneytaker1 (1 year ago)
I absolutely can not believe this worked. Thank you so much for saving me the aggravation of changing out parts as that was the next step I was going to take. Haven't been able to cook a steak in months. Tried your instructions and it instantly worked the very first time. Thanks 👍

Thank you, worked with Weber performer

Thanks Ricky. Worked like a charm! We're cooking with gas now!
Robert Feehan (1 year ago)
Thank you, that was amazing, I have wasted so much time trying to get this problem fixed and ruined the steak last week as I had to broil it in the Oven. YES it was Me that turned the gas off at the tank! oops wont be doing that again.

Worked great on my little $30 tabletop Char Broil, which I have hooked to a 20 lb tank. Thank you, sir!

Thank you it saved the day just before Ireland Beat Sweden!!

cheers from sunny wales. worked for me :)
oscar madison (2 years ago)
Apparently by doing this you are resetting the regulator. If you don't turn off the burners in the "correct" order (and nobody seems to know exactly what that is. . . ), the regulator "locks up." This process resets it. It definitely works!
charlie ramz (2 years ago)
Man this worked on my Weber!!!! Thanks for video!!
Chris Jackson (2 years ago)
absolutely works. thanks
maxtrax89 (2 years ago)
This has worked for me in the past but for the life of me I can't get it to work on my most recent weber. When it's warm out I don't have any issues but when it's below about 40*F I can't grill. Unfortunately I can't check the regulator or manifold for leaks because it's below freezing out now. Any other tips?
timber_beast (2 years ago)
Please thank your wife for me Ricky. Her mistake and your solution saved me some BBQ time. Now as I like to say... "You want me to break something else?"

I’m currently designing a compact portable gas grill for my internship and am hoping if I can ask for your help. I’m making a 2 lp gas burner BBQ. I built the manifold, the BBQ module and cover but everything else are universal replacement parts: tube burner, valve, igniter kit, hose, regulator. The BBQ module’s dimension is 16” x 16” x 2.5” and it has two 16-1/5" X 1" Stainless Steel Tube Burner. I was using a replacement valve with #53 orifice size but due the depth restriction of the BBQ module I replaced the brass spud with #69 orifice size to get much smaller flame size. However, the current issue that I’m experiencing is when I turn the valve to high or low the flame size hardly changes. Thank you in advance for your help!

Thank you for your video, it seams to work on home portable gas fires too....
Vince Amato (2 years ago)
Yes Ricky. That is a safety device. You can read about it in the instructions or sometimes a yellow tag on the regulator hose. It's a free flow gas prevention device. It senses the rapid flow of gas and immediately throttles the gas flow. It is a safety device in case the gas hose after the regulator gets cut or broken, so you won't have wide open gas flow. My instructions explain (Weber) that if you activate the safety device, the BBQ will only heat to 225 degrees. So if you are preheating your grill and see it's only at 225, shut off the tank valve and open the burner valves to relieve the pressure. To be extra sure, remove the regulator from the tank and then replace. This will ensure that the pressure is relieved. Now, as you said, open the tank valve DEAD slow. Especially a newly refilled tank. USE TWO HANDS on top of the valve to keep it from snapping open. Just like you do for oxy-acetylene tanks so you don't snap the gauges with a pressure blast. Open them as slow as molasses in the winter time. Once you get it 1/4 to 1/2 turn open, you can open it all the way.

You got it. Someone explained that to me a few weeks ago. I never did open it fast, but I tried it and sure enough, the safety kicked in.

Ed Reynolds (2 years ago)
Remember to SHUT OFF the burner controls AFTER you're finished grilling. This will eliminate the headache to begin with. THEN shut off the tank valve. Sometimes a reset can be simpler. Turn off the open valve(s); turn off the tank valve; unscrew the regulator from the tank; reinstall it on the tank; wait a minute or so and then start everything up again.

Jim Ferron (3 years ago)
Brillaint. It worked. Thanks from a Webber user in the UK. We've had this particular Webber since 2006 and never came across this problem before.  I thought it had reached the end of its natural life. What a relief. Great to find you and this little touch of homestead BBQ know-how. Cheers

Wow! Worked for me!!! Thanks for the advice buddy! I bought a new Nexgrill from Home Depot and thought I was getting ripped off. Went up to 600 degrees in 5 mins and the next time 150 degrees. I said WTF. Next time worked great. This morning it happened again. So, I went to you tube like I do for other problems and found this guy's video. Tried it after seeing the video and the heat went up fast.

John Stephan (3 years ago)
Exact same damn thing happened to me yesterday, brand new bbq and the tank ran out of gas in the middle of cooking so I run to the store and bought another tank and the flame was only a tiny flame on one burner only, thought the problem was the tank and went back and got another one, same damn thing again. Ruined the BBQ meal, had to cook nice thick steaks on the stove. I was choked to say the least.  Anyway I will try your advice and go from there.  Thanks for posting.
Greg Pratten (3 years ago)

Ill be darn it worked.  I can not think of any reason it would, but it worked - thanks
HD Mace (3 years ago)
DUDE!!!!  You rock!  Funny accent and all!  LOL  Great advice!  Thanks!!!  I think it has to do with air being trapped in the line and thus, not enough gas get through!  :-)  
Gerald Dunkelman (3 years ago)
I could not believe that this actually worked!  Saved me a trip to the hardware store to buy a new regulator.  Thanks.
Dennis Ryan (3 years ago)
Our weber spirit also had this same problem. Grill would only get to about 200 degrees before the fix! I did what you said and it worked on the first try. Thank you
Debbie Knapp (3 years ago)
My husband just did this on his Weber Q grill - worked perfectly. Now he's trying to tell me how hard he worked getting it going again...lol...that might work except I am the one found this great video!
Robert Pickoff (3 years ago)
I had the same issue and your solution worked perfectly for me too.  Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to create this video.  I don't know why Weber didn't tell me this......!!!
