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.

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

Fill liquid propane cylinder
Note - The liquid propane cylinder manufacturer is
responsible for the materials, workmanship and
performance of the cylinder. If the cylinder has a
defect, malfunctions, or you have a question regarding
the cylinder, call the cylinder manufacturer’s customer
service center. The phone number is on the warning
decal, which is permanently attached to the cylinder. If
the cylinder manufacturer has not resolved the issue to
your satisfaction, then contact the Customer Service
Representative in your region using the contact
information sheet provided with your manual.
To fill, take the liquid propane cylinder and filler
adapter to an RV center or look up gas-propane in the
phone book for other sources of liquid propane gas.
WARNING: We recommend that your liquid
propane cylinder be filled at an authorized liquid
propane gas dealer by a qualified attendant, who
fills the tank by weight.
IMPROPER FILLING IS DANGEROUS.
Tell your liquid propane dealer that this is a new liquid
propane cylinder. The air must be removed from a new
liquid propane cylinder before the initial filling. Your
liquid propane cylinder dealer is equipped to do this.
The liquid propane cylinder must be installed,
transported and stored in an upright position, and
should not be dropped or handled roughly.
Never store or transport the liquid propane cylinder
where temperatures can reach 125° Fahrenheit (too
hot to hold by hand – for example: do not leave the
liquid propane cylinder in a car on a hot day).
For full instructions on safe handling of liquid propane
cylinders, see Section “Operating”.
Important LP Cylinder Information
Failure to follow these DANGER statements exactly
may result in a fire causing death or serious injury.
DANGER
NEVER store a spare LP Cylinder under or near
this barbecue.
NEVER fill the tank beyond 80% full.
Your Weber gas grill is equipped with a cylinder
supply system designed for vapor withdrawal.
WARNING: Only use this grill outdoors in a wellventilated area. Do not use in a garage, building,
breezeway or any other enclosed area.
The LP cylinder supplied with your barbecue is
equipped with an OPD (Overfilling Prevention
Device) and a QCC1 or Type 1 (CGA810) cylinder
connection. The cylinder connection is compatible
with the barbecue connection.
This is a secondary device to prevent the overfilling of
your LP cylinder. The proper filling methods for the
filling of your cylinder are by weight or volume, as
described in NFPA 58. Please make sure your filling
station fills your LP cylinder by weight or volume. Ask
your filling station to read purging and filling
instructions on the LP cylinder before attempting to fill.
WARNING: Do not exchange the LP tank
provided with your barbecue, unless the exchange
LP tank is equipped with an OPD. Otherwise you
will lose the OPD (Overfilling Prevention Device)
feature. If there is not an LP tank available for
exchange equipped with an OPD, we recommend
that you have your LP tank filled at an authorized
LP gas dealer by a qualified attendant.

Liquid Propane (LP) Cylinder(s)
Safe handling tips for
Liquid Propane Gas Cylinders
■ The joint where the hose connects to the LP cylinder
must be leak tested each time the LP cylinder is
reconnected. For example, test each time the LP
cylinder is refilled.
■ Be sure the regulator is mounted with the small vent
hole pointed downward so that it will not collect water.
This vent should be free of dirt, grease, bugs etc.
■ The LP cylinder and connections supplied with your
Weber Gas Barbecue have been designed and tested
to meet government, American Gas Association, and
Underwriters Laboratories requirements.
■ Liquid Propane (LP) gas is a petroleum product as
are gasoline and natural gas. LP gas is a gas at
regular temperatures and pressures. Under moderate
pressure, inside a cylinder, LP gas is a liquid. As the
pressure is released, the liquid readily vaporizes and
becomes gas.
■ LP gas has an odor similar to natural gas. You
should be aware of this odor.
■ LP gas is heavier than air. Leaking LP gas may
collect in low areas and prevent dispersion.
■ To fill, take the LP cylinder to an RV center, or look
up “gas-propane” in the phone book for other sources
of LP gas.
m WARNING: We recommend that your LP cylinder
be filled at an authorized LP gas dealer, by a
qualified attendant, who fills the tank by weight.
IMPROPER FILLING IS DANGEROUS.
m WARNING: If you exchange your LP cylinder,
make sure you get a similar tank in return. Your LP
cylinder is equipped with a quick closing coupling
or type 1 valve and an OPD (Overfilling Prevention
Device). Other LP cylinders may not be compatible
with your barbecue connection.
■ Air must be removed from a new LP cylinder before
the initial filling. Your LP dealer is equipped to do this.
■ The LP cylinder must be installed, transported and
stored in an upright position. LP cylinders should not
be dropped or handled roughly.
■ Never store or transport the LP cylinder where
temperatures can reach 125° F (too hot to hold by
hand - for example: do not leave the LP cylinder in a
car on a hot day).
Note - A refill will last about 20 hours of cooking time
at normal use. The fuel scale will indicate the propane
supply so you can refill before running out. You do not
have to run out before you refill.
■ Treat “empty” LP cylinders with the same care as
when full. Even when the LP tank is empty of liquid
there still may be gas pressure in the cylinder. Always
close the cylinder valve before disconnecting.
m CAUTION: When transporting the LP cylinder
make sure the plastic dust cover is in place over
the valve. This will keep dust and dirt from the
threaded portion of the valve.
■ Do not use a damaged LP cylinder. Dented or rusty
LP cylinders or LP cylinders with a damaged valve
may be hazardous and should be replaced with a new
one immediately.

Liquid Propane Cylinder requirements
■ Replacement LP cylinders supplied by Weber satisfy
the above requirements. Check to be sure other
cylinders have a D.O.T. certification(1), and date
tested(2) is within five years. Your LP gas supplier can
do this for you.
If you have questions about spare LP cylinders
contact the Customer Service Representative in
your region using the contact information sheet
provided with your manual.
■ All LP tank supply systems must include a collar to
protect the cylinder valve.
■ The LP cylinder must be a 20-lb. size (18 1/4 inches
high, 12 1/4 inches in diameter).
■ The LP cylinder must be constructed and marked in
accordance with the specifications for LP gas cylinders
of the U.S. Department of Transportation (D.O.T.).
