I can't get my Q to start properly. My start routine is to open the tank valve (20 Lb. with adapter hose) turn the control valve to start and hit the electronic start button. I get an immediate start at the ignition end of the burner but the flame does not go around the rest of the burner. After a couple of minutes it seems to get enough gas and with a "whump!" the rest of the burner lights. Lately I can't get it to do even that. I suspect the regulator has gone but wanted some more input.
Yes, it does sound like a regulator problem or clogged burners, which causes delayed ignition. let's start with the regulator first. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner(s) as you usually do. Does the burner light, all the way around? If so, you solved the problem. Always, turn the tank valve on very, very slowly.If that didn't solve the problem, you burner needs to be removed and thoroughly cleaned, including the venturi valve at the open end of the burner. If it still doesn't light as it should, the regulator needs to be replaced. If necessary, you can purchase it directly from Weber.Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
