FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / Weber Silver Genesis repair...

It's all gravy from here on...

Fixed a problem with my Weber Genesis Silver yesterday. I just replaced the burner tubes with brand new Weber SS tubes last week but the front burner flame was too low. I tried adjusting the screens on the tubes for airflow but it had no positive effect. So, I decided to take the manifold back off to see what I could figure out. Low and behold, I could see a white substance in the gas jet on the offending burner. I found a small wound string that would fit in the orifice (a “D” I think), and after a few back and forth strokes, I opened the gas valve quickly and watched some debris shoot out in a fan shape. The jet looked clean so I buttoned everything back up and now it’s as good as new! Must have been some tiny spider or mite making a home! I always figured those guitar strings I cut and put in my toolbox would come in handy someday!

yeah, the middle control knob on mine broke last week, haven't had a chance to fix it.
I'm guessing the valve is broken

I'm keeping my fingers crossed as my old Silver B has yet to need any repair. We've had this thing for a good 20 years now (I think).

Spiders building little webs inside gas burners is a major cause of grill issues.

I had a rodent visit my 20 year old Genesis this spring and my GF just had to see it go. I was planning a major clean up and new rails so I would have spent about $150-200 on it. I replaced it with a Genesis II E-310.

I was very hesitant to do this as the design has changed drastically. I absolutely love the new Weber. It's better than the old one ever was and well worth the cost.
