Your Weber® gas grill is a portable outdoor
cooking appliance. With the Weber® gas grill you
can grill, grill, roast and bake with results that are
difficult to duplicate with indoor kitchen appliances.
The closed lid produces that “outdoor” flavor in the
food.
The Weber® gas grill is portable so you can easily
change its location in your yard or on your patio.
Portability means you can take your Weber® gas
grill with, if you move. Propane gas supply is easy
to use and gives you more cooking control than
charcoal fuel.
• These instructions will give you the minimum
requirements for assembling your Weber® gas
grill. Please read the instructions carefully before
using your Weber® gas grill. Improper assembly
can be dangerous.
• Not for use by children.
• If there are local codes that apply to portable
gas grills, you will have to conform to them. If
there are no local codes, you must conform to
the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas Code:
ANSI Z 223.1/NFPA54.
• The pressure regulator supplied with the Weber®
gas grill must be used. This regulator is set for
11 inches of water column (pressure).
• This Weber® gas grill is designed for use with
propane gas only. Do not use with natural
(piped in city) gas. The valve and regulator is for
Propane gas only.
• Do not use with charcoal fuel.
• This Weber® gas grill is not intended for
commercial use.
• The use of alcohol, prescription or nonprescription drugs may impair the consumers
ability to properly assemble or safely operate
the appliance.
• This Weber® gas grill is not intended for and
should never be used as a heater.
• Do not leave the Weber® gas grill unattended.
Keep children and pets away from the Weber®
gas grill at all times.
• Check that the area under the control panel and
the bottom tray are free from debris that might
obstruct the flow of combustion or ventilation air.
For Installation in Canada: These instructions,
while generally acceptable, do not necessarily
comply with the Canadian Installation codes,
particularly with piping above and below ground.
In Canada the installation of this appliance must
comply with local codes and/or Standard CAN/
CGA-B149.1 Natural Gas and Propane Installation
Code.
Storage and/or Nonuse
 WARNING: When cooking, the appliance
must be on a level, stable surface in an area
clear of combustible material. An asphalt
surface (blacktop) may not be acceptable for
this purpose.
 WARNING: Turn your Weber® gas grill OFF
and wait for it to cool before cleaning.
®
• When the Weber gas grill is not in use, the
propane cylinder must be DISCONNECTED
and the propane cylinder stored outdoors in
a well-ventilated space. Place dust caps on
cylinder valve outlets when cylinder is not in use.
• The Weber® gas grill should be checked for
gas leaks and any obstructions in the burner
tubes before using. (See Sections: “General
Maintenance and Annual Maintenance.”)
• The Spider/Insect Screen should also be
checked for any obstructions. (See Section:
“Annual Maintenance.”)
Operating
 WARNING: Only use this grill outdoors in a
well-ventilated area. Do not use in a garage,
building, breezeway or any other enclosed
area.
 WARNING: Your Weber® gas grill shall not
be used under an unprotected combustible
roof or overhang.
 WARNING: Your Weber® gas grill is not
intended to be installed in or on recreational
vehicles and/or boats.
 WARNING: Do not use the grill within
24 inches of combustible materials, bottom,
back or sides of the grill.
 WARNING: The entire cooking box gets hot
when in use. Do not leave unattended.
 WARNING: Keep any electrical supply cord
away from any heated surface.
 WARNING: Keep the cooking area clear
of flammable vapors and liquids such as
gasoline, alcohol, etc., and combustible
materials.
 WARNING: Never store an extra (spare)
Propane cylinder under or near the Weber®
gas grill.
Weber® Spider/Insect screens
Your Weber® gas grill, as well as any outdoor
gas appliance, is a target for spiders and other
insects. They can nest in the venturi section(1)
of the burner tube. This blocks the normal gas
flow, and can cause the gas to flow back out of
the air shutter. This
(1)
could result in a fire
in and around the
air shutter, causing
serious damage to
your grill.
Cooking
Getting started: Refer to your Q™ Cards
grilling guide.
To light the grill: Refer to the lighting instructions
in this owners manual and printed on the fold out
tables of your grill.
To preheat the grill: Light the Weber® Q™ according
the lighting instructions in this owners manual.
Close the lid and turn the Burner Control Knob
to Start/Hi. Preheat the grill for 5-10 minutes
(depending on conditions such as air temperature
and wind). Once the grill is preheated, set the
Burner Control knob to the setting specified in the
recipe or suggested in the Q™ Cards grilling guide.
Note: Wind and weather may require adjustment
of the burner control knob to obtain the correct
cooking temperature.
If the burner goes out during cooking, open the lid,
turn off the burner, and wait five minutes before
relighting.
Drippings and grease: Excess drippings and
grease will collect in the catch pan in the slide-out
bottom tray (located on the underside of the grill).
Disposable Weber® drip pans are available that fit
the catch pan.
 WARNING: Check the catch pan and the
bottom of the grill for grease build-up before
each use. Remove excess grease to avoid a
fire in the bottom of the grill.
 WARNING: Do not move the Weber® Q™
when operating or while the grill is hot.
The burner tube air shutter is fitted with a
stainless steel screen(1) to prevent spiders and
other insects access to the burner tube through
the air shutter openings. We recommend that you
inspect the Spider/Insect screen at least once a
year. Also inspect and clean the the Spider/Insect
screen if any of the following symptoms should
ever occur:
1) The smell of gas in conjunction with the burner
flames appearing yellow and lazy.
2) Grill does not reach temperature.

have been thoroughly checked for gas leaks.
The burners have been flame tested. As a
safety precaution however, you should recheck
all fittings for leaks before using your Weber ®
gas grill. Shipping and handling may have
loosened or damaged a gas fitting.
 WARNING: Perform these leak checks even
if your grill was dealer- or store-assembled.
You will need a soap and water solution and a rag
or brush to apply it. To perform leak checks make
sure the Burner is in the off position and turn on
