This is for a webber performer grill. It was popping and the flame was erratic so I cleaned it according to the instructions. Now it has worked perfectly for a couple months, but recently it won't light. The gas is full. The grill and orifice are clean. Usually I could hear a jetting sound at the burner if it was not lit. The normal sound of gas russing into the tube. Now there is no sound. The igniter still works and it will light right at the orifice, like a piolet light. But there is no pressure and no flame. If I take the orifice clip off and take out the orifice, then turn on the gas, there is barely any gas. Could it be a bad regulator? Is this a warrenty item?
Mike, it may be a bad regulator, but is may also be correctable without buy any parts.To solve the problem do the following:To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:
1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.
If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's
Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or
hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it,
turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.
