General Instructions
Storage
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.
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.
■
When the Weber Gas Barbecue is stored indoors, the
gas supply must be disconnected.
WARNING: Only use this barbecue outdoors in a
well ventilated area. Do not use in a garage, building,
breezeway or any other enclosed area.
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.
■
The gas must be turned OFF at the natural gas supply
when the Weber Gas Barbecue is not in use.
Operating area
The natural gas supply is easy to use and gives you more
cooking control than charcoal fuel.
■
■
■
Never use your Weber Gas Barbecue under an
unprotected combustible roof or overhang.
■
Your Weber Gas Barbecue is not intended to be
installed in or on recreational vehicles and/or boats.
■
Do not use combustible materials within 24 inches of
the top, bottom, back or sides of the grill.
■
The entire cooking box gets hot when in use. Do not
leave unattended.
■
Keep any electrical supply cord and the fuel supply
hose away from any heated surface.
■
Keep the cooking area clear of flammable vapors and
liquids, such as gasoline, alcohol, etc., and
combustible materials.
Gas supply testing
■
Disconnect your Weber Gas Barbecue when the gas
supply is being tested at high pressures. This appliance
and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping system during any pressure
testing of that system at test pressures in excess of
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
■
Turn off your Weber Gas Barbecue when the gas
supply is being tested at low pressures. This appliance
must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by
closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any
pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at
the pressure equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

To barbecue
Some of the following are general requirements taken
from ANSI Z223.1, for gas supply installations. Refer to
ANSI 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.

Gas line piping
■
If the length of line required does not exceed 50 feet,
use a 5/8" O.D. tube. One size larger should be used
for lengths greater than 50 feet.
■
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.
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.
■
The dust covers (supplied plastic plugs) help keep the
open ends of the quick disconnect fitting clean while
disconnected.
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.
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.
■
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.
Test connections
All connections and joints must be thoroughly tested for
leaks in accordance with local codes and all listed
procedures in the latest edition of ANSI Z223.1.
 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 gas leaks. This will result in a fire or

Cooking
Storage and/or Nonuse
WARNING: Do not move the Weber Gas Barbecue
when operating or hot.
■
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
Sections General and Annual Maintenance.)
■
Check that the areas under the control panel and the
bottom tray are free from debris that might obstruct
the flow of combustion or ventilation air.
■
The Spider Stopper Guards should also be checked
for any obstructions. (See Section "Annual
Maintenance.")
You can adjust the FRONT, CENTER 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, CENTER, and BACK burners. For example, to
sear steaks you would use (HHH) (all burners at high).
Then to complete cooking you would use (MOM) (FRONT
at medium, CENTER off, and BACK at medium). See your
Weber cookbook for detailed cooking instructions.
Note: The temperatures 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 may require the adjustment of the burner
controls to attain 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 5 minutes before relighting.
Periodic Cleaning
Preheating
WARNING: Turn your Weber Gas Barbecue OFF and
wait for it to cool before cleaning.
Your Weber Genesis Gas Barbecue is an energy efficient
appliance. It operates at a low B.T.U. rate for economy. To
preheat, after lighting, close lid and turn all burners to high
(HHH). 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.
CAUTION: Do not clean your Flavorizer Bars or
cooking grates in a self-cleaning oven. Replacement
cooking grates and Flavorizer Bars are available
through your retailer or the Weber-Stephen Customer
Service Center.
Drippings and grease
Outside surfaces - Use a warm soapy water solution.
The Flavorizer Bars are designed to "smoke" the right
amount of drippings for flavorful cooking. Excess drippings
and grease accumulate in the catch pan under the bottom
tray. Disposable foil liners are available that fit the catch pan.
CAUTION: Do not use oven cleaner, abrasive
cleansers (kitchen cleansers) cleaners that contain
citrus products or abrasive cleaning pads on barbecue
or cart surfaces.
WARNING: Check the bottom tray for grease buildup before each use. Remove excess grease to avoid a
grease fire in the bottom tray.
Bottom tray - Remove excess grease and then wash with
warm soapy water.
Flavorizer Bars and Cooking Grates- Clean with a
suitable brass bristle brush. As needed, remove from grill
and wash with warm soapy 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.
Thermometer - Wipe with warm soapy water, clean with
plastic scrub ball. Do not put in dishwasher or submerge in
water.
Inside cooking box - Brush any debris off of burners tubes.
DO NOT ENLARGE BURNER PORTS (OPENINGS). Wash
inside of cooking box with warm soapy water.
Inside Lid - While lid is warm, wipe inside with paper towel
to prevent flaking due to grease build-up.

Annual Maintenance
Check:
a) Hose to manifold connection. Figure 3 (a).
After a period of nonuse we recommend that you perform
the following maintenance procedures for your safety.
WARNING: If there is a leak at connection (a),
retighten the fitting with a wrench and recheck for
leaks with soap and water solution.
WARNING: Check hose before each use of 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. Order from Weber-Stephen Products
Co., Customer Service Center or authorized dealer.
■
■
If a leak persists after retightening the fitting, turn OFF
the gas. DO NOT OPERATE THE BARBECUE. Contact
Weber-Stephen Customer Service.
b) Valves to manifold connections. Figure 3 (b).
Inspect the burners for correct flame pattern. Clean if
necessary, following the procedures outlined in the
"General Maintenance" section of this manual.
c) Hose to quick disconnect connection. Figure 3 (c).
WARNING: If there is a leak at connections (b) or (c),
turn OFF the gas. DO NOT OPERATE THE BARBECUE.
Contact Weber-Stephen Customer Service.
Check all gas fittings for leaks.
When leak checks are complete, turn gas supply OFF at
the source and rinse connections with water.
 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. This will result in a fire or explosion
which can cause serious bodily injury or
death, and damage to property.
(a)
WARNING: You should check for gas leaks every
time you disconnect and reconnect a gas fitting.
(b)
You will need: a soap and water solution and a rag or
brush to apply it.
(c)
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.
Figure 3
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). Check that there
are no gaps in the Spider Stopper Guards’ seams or in the
fit around the burners or valves. (See Section "General
Maintenance".)

General Maintenance
Main Burner Flame Pattern
Weber Spider Stopper Guards
The Weber Gas Barbecue burners have been factory set
for the correct air and gas mixture. The correct flame
pattern is shown in Figure 6.
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 of the burner tubes. This
blocks the normal gas flow, and can cause the gas to flow
back out of the air shutter. Figure 4. This could result in a
fire in and around the air shutters, under the control panel,
causing serious damage to your barbecue.

Main Burner Cleaning Procedure
The Weber Spider Stopper Guard 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.
Figure 5.
Turn off the gas supply. Remove the manifold. (See
Section “Replacing the main burners”.)
Look inside each burner with a flashlight. Figure 7.

Stopper Guard
Figure 7
Clean the inside of the burners with a wire (a straightened
out coat hanger will work). Figure 8. 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.
Figure 5
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.
Figure 8
2. Barbecue does not reach temperature.
3. Barbecue heats unevenly.
CAUTION: Do not enlarge the burner ports when
cleaning.
4. One or more of the burners do not ignite.
Replacing Main Burners
 DANGER
a) Your Weber Gas Barbecue must be OFF and cool.
Failure to correct these symptoms may
result in a fire which can cause serious
bodily injury or death and cause damage
to property.
b) Turn gas OFF at source.
c) Remove control panel: take off the burner control
knobs. Remove the screws holding the control panel
in place. Lift off the control panel.
26
d) Unlatch the Spider Stopper Guards and remove.
