Frost around regulator and hose

I connected a new full LP tank to my Weber silver B grill. After cooking on it, I noticed a frost had formed over the regulator and the hose leading to the burners. What is the cause of the frost? Do I need to repair anything?

Frost around regulator and hose


In most cases this is not a problem. If the burners are shut off and you still get this and it doesn't disapate in a few hours there is probably a leak you need have a professional look for. Under normal conditions the overpressure valve on the bottle will go off if the bottle is overfilled. This almost never happens anymore. Dealers are overcautious. What does cause this is high humidity and the JT affect. Your bottle if full and in the summer is at 150 psig plus. Your burners operate at inch ounces (read very very low pressure). Dropping pressure through your regulator causes serious cooling. This is how you process many gases into refined gases these days. Letting air out of a tire does the same thing. If the humidity is high you will get frost on the hoses and other areas the cool gas passes through. By taking this to some dealer and having him drain it you are getting screwed and wasting money. They also vent the excess gas to atmosphere which may be illegal and is definitely pollutting. I work in the propane biz.

I have a 3 or 4 year old Genesis Three Burner Weber Grill. The grill when turned on would only get up to about 250 to 300 degrees. I bought a new regulator and hose and it seems no gas was going to the flame tubes . . . no smell of gas. I bought another regulator and hose and no gas again. Then I turned the gas tank valve on slowly and the gas came out. I got the temperature up to 550 degrees. Great! The next time I turned the gas on and tried to start the grill, again, no gas flowing. I turned the tank valve on slowly several times but to no avail. What is the problem? Thanks, Alan


The gas in the bottle is not a just pure gas but it is contain also very small quantities of oils and dirt. So with long time use they are creating a thin layer over regulator and valve parts, like springs and injector rods which make them to stuck. This what is happening with th tank gas valve which you may turn the regulator but the inside parts are stuck. Sometimes if you hit a litle bit it can work again but this is not a solution. The solution is to replace the tank gas valve with new one. Also you should know that since you have this problem with tank valve then most posible to have also some problem with burners gas valves in the future. One way to avoid this and also with the new tank valve is when you realise that the gas tank is almost empty the is better to replace the tank since the last gas in geting out the most of the above mention oil and dirt and end on the valves.

I am renting a condo with an old Weber Grill - 2 burner / LP (I think it is a Genesis Silver A ('00-01) model . I have very little gas pressure at the burner tubes. - Front tube flickers on/off with the front control turned on full; and - When the back tube is turned on there is not enough gas pressure in the manifold to keep the front tube burning. I have: 1) a full tank; 2) a working regulator; 3) cleaned out some sort of insect nest (spiders?) in the metal inlet tube between the regulator hose and the manifold. But still I have not improved the gas pressure at the tubes. I assume that: 1. There are nests in the manifold; and / or 2. Nest in front of the venturi nozzles in the burner tubes. Are these assumptions correct; and are the parts cleanable (they look reasonable rusted after 10 years); or should I just buy new burner tube kit and a new manifold kit?


Yes the best option for just for you is to buy a new burner,tube kit and a new manifold kit because all the things that you said you removed from the burner must have caused alot of rust on the burner and if you keep welding the burner there will still be linkage after awhile so the best thing is just for u replace the burner.

Weber Silver Genesis C regulator purging gas after reset process


This could be caused by a couple of problems. First the regulator could be bad, or the tank is getting to hot. Which causes the relief valve to open and release pressure. This will happen when weather outside is hot.

Weber grill replaced hose because of faulty regulator had smelled gas and low cook temp. grill is 4 to 5 yrs old. Connected new hose did soapy water thing no leaks at hose connects. Still smell gas when tank valve open but have not turned on burners yet. What else could be wrong?


Lisa, when you conducted the soapy water test, how long did you leave the soapy water on each fitting, before you determined there were no leaks? Sometimes, it can take 5 minutes or more for a leak to show up. You should also soap text the tank valve itself.If no burners were ON when you tested for leaks (and apparently didn't find any), the problem still lies in the Hose/Regulator assembly connections or the tank valve, When you test the tank valve, do it after the valve has been opened very, very slowly (Slow motion, slow).Hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem

Bought a weber genesis 320 Problem with the Weber Genesis E-320 Propane Grill bought a weber genesis 320 in US and need to replace the hose / regulator that it fits to German LP gas cylinders. Which dimension has the connector to the Grill ( male or female)


Normally, at least on an American grill hose/regulator assembly are a universal fit. And both ends of the hose have female couplings. I would think it would be the same on German Models too. For the connection to the grill, the hose coupling size is 3/8" ID.
