Should a grease fire occur, turn off all burners and leave lid closed until fire is out.
Do not enlarge valve orifices or burner ports when cleaning the valves or burners.
The Weber Gas Barbecue should be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.
Liquid propane gas is not natural gas. The conversion or attempted use of natural gas in a
liquid propane unit or liquid propane gas in a natural gas unit is dangerous and will void your
warranty.
Do not attempt to disconnect any gas fitting while your barbecue is in operation.
Use heat-resistant barbecue mitts or gloves when operating barbecue.
LIQUID PROPANE GAS UNITS ONLY:
Use the regulator that is supplied with your Weber Gas Barbecue.
Do not attempt to disconnect the gas regulator or any gas fitting while your barbecue is in
operation.
A dented or rusty liquid propane cylinder may be hazardous and should be checked by your
liquid propane supplier. Do not use a liquid propane cylinder with a damaged valve.
Although your liquid propane cylinder may appear to be empty, gas may still be present, and
the cylinder should be transported and stored accordingly.
If you see, smell or hear the hiss of escaping gas from the liquid propane cylinder:
1. Move away from liquid propane cylinder.
2. Do not attempt to correct the problem yourself.

General Instructions
•
Your Weber Gas Barbecue is a portable outdoor
cooking appliance. With the Weber Gas Barbecue you
can grill, barbecue, roast and bake with results that are
difficult to duplicate with indoor kitchen appliances. The
closed lid and Flavorizer® Bars produce that “outdoor”
flavor in the food.
The Weber Gas Barbecue is portable so you can
easily change its location in your yard or on your patio.
Portability means you can take your Weber Gas
Barbecue with you if you move.
The natural 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
Barbecue. Please read the instructions carefully
before using your Weber Gas Barbecue. 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.
• This Weber Gas Barbecue is designed for natural
(piped in city) gas only. Do not use liquid propane
(LP) bottled gas. The valves, orifices and hose are
for natural gas only.
• Do not use with charcoal fuel.
• 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.
•
The gas must be turned OFF at the natural gas
supply when the Weber Gas Barbecue is not in
use.
When the Weber Gas Barbecue is stored indoors,
the gas supply must be disconnected.

General Specifications for Piping
Note - Contact your local municipality for building
codes regulating outdoor gas barbecue
installations. In absence of Local Codes, you must
confirm to the latest edition of ANSI Z223.1. WE
RECOMMEND THAT THIS INSTALLATION BE DONE
BY A PROFESSIONAL.
Some of the following are general requirements taken
from ANISI Z223.1 latest edition for complete
specifications.
■ This barbecue is designed to operate at 7 inches of
water column pressure (.2526 psi).
■ A manual shut-off valve must be installed outdoors,
immediately ahead of the quick disconnect.
■ An additional manual shut-off valve indoors should
be installed in the branch fuel line in an accessible
location near the supply line
■ The quick disconnect connects to a 3/8 inch NPT
thread from the gas source. The quick disconnect
fitting is a hand-operated device that automatically
shuts OFF the flow of gas from the source when the
barbecue is disconnected
■ The quick disconnect fitting can be installed
horizontally, or pointing downward. Installing the fitting
with the open end pointing upward can result in
collecting water and debris.
■ The dust covers (supplied plastic plugs) help keep
the open ends of the quick disconnect fitting clean
while disconnected.
■ Pipe compound should be used which is resistant to
the action of natural gas when connections are made.
■ The outdoor connector must be firmly attached to
rigid, permanent construction.
WARNING: Do not route the 12 foot hose under
a deck. The hose must be visible.

■ Gas piping may be copper tubing, type K or L;
polyethylene plastic tube, with a minimum wall
thickness of .062 inch; or standard weight (schedule
40) steel or wrought iron pipe.
■ Copper tubing must be tin-lined if the gas contains
more than 0.3 grams of hydrogen sulfide per 100 cubic
feet of gas.
■ Plastic tubing is suitable only for outdoor,
underground use.
■ Gas piping in contact with earth, or any other
material which may corrode the piping, must be
protected against corrosion in an approved manner.
■ Underground piping must have a minimum of 18"
cover

Cooking
WARNING: Do not move the Weber Gas Barbecue when operating or while barbecue is hot.
You can adjust the FRONT and BACK burners as
desired. The control settings: High (H), Medium (M),
Low (L), or Off (O) are described in your Weber
cookbook. The cookbook uses these notations to
describe the settings of the FRONT and BACK burners. For example, to sear steaks, you would set all
burners at H (high). Then to complete cooking, you
would set FRONT and BACK at M (medium). Refer to
your Weber cookbook for detailed cooking instructions.
Cleaning
WARNING: Turn your Weber Gas Barbecue OFF
and wait for it to cool before cleaning.
CAUTION: Do not clean your Flavorizer® Bars or
cooking grates in a self-cleaning oven.
For availability of replacement cooking grates and
Flavorizer Bars contact the Customer Service
Representative in your region using the contact
information sheet provided with your manual.
Outside surfaces - Use a warm soapy water solution
to clean, then rinse with water.
CAUTION: Do not use oven cleaner, abrasive
cleansers (kitchen cleansers) cleaners that contain
citrus products, or abrasive cleaning pads on
barbecue or cart surfaces.
Slide out Bottom tray - Remove excess grease, then
wash with warm soapy water, then rinse
Flavorizer® Bars and Cooking Grates - Clean with a
suitable brass bristle brush. As needed, remove from
grill and wash with warm soapy water, then rinse with
water.
Catch pan - Disposable foil trays are available, or you
can line the catch pan with aluminum foil. To clean the
catch pan, wash with warm soapy water, then rinse.
Thermometer - Wipe with warm soapy water; clean
with plastic scrub ball. Do not put in dishwasher or
submerge in water.
Inside cooking module - Brush any debris off of
burner tubes. DO NOT ENLARGE BURNER PORTS
(OPENINGS). Wash inside of cooking box with warm
soapy water and a water rinse.
Inside Lid - While lid is warm, wipe inside with paper
towel to prevent grease build-up. Flaking built-up
grease resembles paint flakes.
Stainless steel surfaces - Wash with a soft cloth and
a soap and water solution.
Plastic surfaces - Wash with a soft cloth and a soap
and water solution.
Do not use cleaners that contain acid, mineral
spirits or xylene. Rinse well after cleaning.
Note: The temperature inside your cooking box for the
first few uses, while surfaces are still very reflective,
may be hotter than those shown in your cookbook.
Cooking conditions. Such as wind and weather, may
require the adjustment of the burner controls to obtain
the correct cooking temperatures.
CAUTION: Replace thermometer in lid when not
in use. Do not leave thermometer in food while
cooking.
If burners go out during cooking, open lid, turn off
all burners and wait five minutes before relighting.
Preheating - Your Weber Gas Barbecue is an energyefficient appliance. It operates at an economical low
BTU rate. To preheat: after lighting, close lid and turn
all burners to high (HH). Preheating to between 500°
and 550° F (260° and 290° C) will take 10 to 15
minutes depending on conditions such as air temperature and wind.
Drippings and grease - The Flavorizer® Bars are
designed to “smoke” the correct amount of drippings
for flavorful cooking. Excess drippings and grease will
accumulate in the catch pan under the slide out bottom
tray. Disposable foil drip pans are available that fit the
catch pan.
WARNING: Check the bottom tray for grease
build-up before each use. Remove excess grease
to avoid a grease fire in the slide out bottom tray.
Storage
■ When storing the Weber Gas Barbecue, make sure
that the inside shut-off valve and/or locking outdoor
shut-off valve is secured in the OFF position. When the
Weber Gas Barbecue is stored indoors, the gas supply
MUST BE DISCONNECTED.
■ After a period of storage and/or nonuse, the Weber
Gas Grill should be checked for gas leaks and any
obstructions in the burner tubes before using. (See
“Maintenance” Section.)
Plastic work surfaces are not to be used as cutting
boards.

Annual Maintenance
After a period of nonuse, we recommend that you
perform the following maintenance procedures for your
safety.
WARNING: Check the hose before each use of
the barbecue for nicks, cracking, abrasions or
cuts. If the hose is found to be damaged in any
way, do not use the barbecue. Replace using only
Weber authorized replacement hose. Contact the
Customer Service Representative in your region
using the contact information sheet provided with
your manual.
■ Inspect the burners for correct flame pattern. Clean
if necessary, following the procedures outlined in the
“General Maintenance” section of this manual.
■ Check all gas fittings for leaks.
DANGER
Do not use an open flame to check for gas
leaks. Be sure there are no sparks or open
flames in the area while you check for
leaks. Sparks or flames will result in a fire
or explosion, which can cause serious
bodily injury or death, and damage to
property.
(1)
WARNING: You should check for gas leaks every
time you disconnect and reconnect a gas fitting.
Note - All factory-made connections 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 Barbecue. Shipping and handling may
have loosened or damaged a gas fitting.
WARNING: Perform these leak checks even if
your barbecue 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 all Burners are in
the off position. Turn on gas supply.
WARNING: Do not ignite burners while leak
checking.
Check for leaks by wetting the connections with the
soap and water solution and watching for bubbles. If
bubbles form, or if a bubble grows, there is a leak.
Note - Since some leak test solutions, including soap
and water, may be slightly corrosive, all connections
should be rinsed with water after checking for leaks.

Inspection and Cleaning of the Weber
Spider Stopper™ Guards
To inspect the Spider Stopper Guards, remove the
control panel and look to see if they have dust or dirt
on their outside surfaces. If they are dirty, brush off the
outside surface of the Spider Stopper Guards with a
soft bristle brush (an old toothbrush for example).

Main Burner Flame Pattern
General Maintenance
The Weber Gas Barbecue burners have been factory
set for the correct air and gas mixture. The correct
flame pattern is shown.
1) Burner tube
2) Tips occasionally flicker yellow
3) Light blue
4) Dark blue
Weber Spider Stopper™ Guards
Your Weber Gas Barbecue, as well as any outdoor gas
appliance, is a target for spiders and other insects.
They can nest in the venturi section (Venturi(1), air
shutter(2), venturi fin(3) ) of the burner tubes. This
blocks the normal gas flow, and can cause the gas to
flow back out of the air shutter. This could result in a
fire in and around the air shutters, under the control
panel, causing serious damage to your barbecue.
(1)

If the flames do not appear to be uniform throughout
the burner tube, follow the burner cleaning procedures.
(3)
The Weber Spider Stopper™ Guard(1) is factory
installed. It fits tightly around the air shutter section of
the burner tube and the valve, thereby preventing
spiders and other insects access to the burner tubes
through the air shutter openings.
Main Burner Cleaning Procedure
Turn off the gas supply. Remove the manifold.
Look inside each burner with a flashlight.
(1)
Clean the inside of the burners with a wire (a straightened-out coat hanger will work). Check and clean the
air shutter opening at the ends of the burners. Check
and clean the valve orifices at the base of the valves.
Use a brass bristle brush to clean outside of burners.
This is to make sure all the burner ports are fully open.
CAUTION: Do not enlarge the burner ports when
cleaning.
We recommend that you inspect the Weber Spider
Stopper Guards at least once a year. (See Section
“Annual Maintenance”.) Also inspect and clean the
Spider Stopper Guards 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) Barbecue does not reach temperature.
3) Barbecue heats unevenly.
4) One or more of the burners do not ignite.
DANGER
Failure to correct the above mentioned
symptoms may result in a fire, which can
cause serious bodily injury or death, and
cause damage to property.
