IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT LP GAS
& LP GAS CONNECTIONS
WHAT IS LP GAS?
Liquefied petroleum gas, also
called LPG, LP gas, liquid
propane, or simply propane
or butane, is the flammable,
petroleum-based product
used to fuel your barbecue.
It is a gas at moderate
temperatures and pressure
when it is not contained. But
at moderate pressure inside a
container, such as a cartridge
or cylinder, LPG is a liquid.
As pressure is released from
the cartridge or cylinder, the
liquid readily vaporizes and
becomes LP gas.
•LPG has an odour similar to
natural gas. You should be
aware of this odour.
•LPG is heavier than air.
Leaking LP gas may collect
in low areas and resist
dispersion.
1
The instructions in this Owner's Guide explain
installation of two possible types of fuel sources:
disposable butane fuel cartridges (1) and larger
refillable propane cylinders (2). The barbecue that
you purchased will use one of these two options.
Follow the specific gas connection instructions that
match your barbecue.
SAFE HANDLING TIPS FOR CARTRIDGES
AND CYLINDERS
There are various guidelines and safety factors that you
need to keep in mind when using liquefied petroleum gas
(LPG). Carefully follow these instructions before using
your Weber® gas barbecue.
2
STORAGE AND NON-USE GUIDELINES
For barbecues that have been stored for a while, it is
important to follow these guidelines:
•
•
•
•
Tips for Both Cartridges and Cylinders
Additional Guidelines for Cartridges
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not use a damaged cartridge/cylinder. A dented
or rusty cartridge/cylinder or a cartridge/cylinder with
a damaged valve may be hazardous and should be
replaced with a new cartridge/cylinder immediately.
Handle “empty” cartridges/cylinders with the same
care as you handle full cartridges/cylinders. Even
when a cartridge/cylinder is empty of liquid, there may
still be gas pressure inside the cartridge/cylinder.
Cartridges/cylinders should not be dropped or
handled roughly.
Never store or transport the cartridge/cylinder where
temperatures can reach 51° C (the cartridge/cylinder
will become too hot to hold by hand). For example: do
not leave the cartridge/cylinder in a car on a hot day.
Leak-test the joint where the regulator connects to the
cartridge/cylinder each time a reconnection occurs.
For example: test each time the cartridge/cylinder is
reinstalled.
Cartridges/cylinders must be kept out of reach of
children.
Do not connect to natural gas supply (city gas).
The valves and orifices are designed exclusively for
liquefied petroleum gas.
The areas around the cartridge/cylinder must be free
and clear from debris.
The cartridge/cylinder should not be changed in the
proximity of an ignition source.
Additional Tip for Cartridges
•
Always close the regulator gas control valve before
disconnecting regulator.
Additional Tips for Cylinders
•
•
Always close the cylinder valve before disconnecting
regulator.
Cylinders must be installed, transported, and stored in
an upright position.
WWW.WEBER.COM®
Disconnect the cylinder if: 1) it is empty; 2) the
barbecue is being stored in a garage or other
enclosed area; 3) the barbecue is being transported.
Additional Guidelines for Cylinders
•
The gas must be turned off at the cylinder when the
Weber® gas barbecue is not in use.
mWARNING: Make sure that the cylinder
valve is closed when the barbecue is
not in use.
•
•
If storing the Weber® gas barbecue indoors, first
DISCONNECT the gas supply and store the cylinder
outdoors in a well-ventilated space.
If you do not disconnect the cylinder from the Weber®
gas barbecue, be sure to keep both the barbecue and
the cylinder outdoors in a well-ventilated area.
REGULATOR CONNECTIONS &
REQUIREMENTS
Requirements for Both Cartridges and
Cylinders
•
•
•
•
Avoid kinking the hose.
Change the flexible hose when national regulations
stipulate this as a requirement.
Any parts sealed by the manufacturer must not be
altered by the user.
Any modification of the appliance may be dangerous.
Additional Requirements for Cylinders
•
•
•
•
10
Do not store a disconnected cartridge/cylinder in a
building, garage, or any other enclosed area.
Check that the areas under the cookbox and the
removable catch pan are free from debris that might
obstruct the flow of combustion or ventilation air.
The Weber® gas barbecue should be checked for gas
leaks and any obstructions in the burner tubes before
it is used. (Refer to “ANNUAL MAINTENANCE.”)
The spider/insect screens should also be
checked for any obstructions. (Refer to “ANNUAL

REPLACEMENT HOSE, REGULATOR AND VALVE ASSEMBLY
mIMPORTANT NOTICE: We recommend that you replace the gas hose assembly
on your Weber® gas barbecue every five years. Some countries may have
requirements that the gas hose be replaced within less than five years, in which
case that country’s requirement would take precedence.
For replacement hose, regulator, and valve assemblies, contact the Customer
Service Representative in your area using the contact information on our web
site. Log on to www.weber.com®.

regulator, which is a device
to control and maintain
uniform gas pressure as gas
is released from the cartridge
or cylinder.

WHAT IS A LEAK CHECK?
The fuel system in your
barbecue features
connections and fittings. A
leak check is a reliable way
to make sure that no gas
is escaping from any of the
connections or fittings.
Although all factory-made
connections have been
thoroughly checked for
gas leaks, it’s important to
perform a leak check before
using your barbecue for the
first time, as well as anytime
you disconnect and reconnect
a fitting and each time you
perform routine maintenance.
m 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 open flames will
result in a fire or explosion, which can
cause serious bodily injury or death and
damage to property.
mWARNING: The gas connections
of your gas barbecue have been
factory-tested. We do, however,
recommend that you leak-check all gas
connections before operating your gas
barbecue.
mWARNING: Perform these leak checks
even if your barbecue was dealer- or
store-assembled.
mWARNING: 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 and the burners have
been flame-tested. As a safety precaution, however,
you should check all fittings for leaks before using your
Weber® gas barbecue. Shipping and handling may
loosen or damage a gas fitting.

Safety must be considered when you are
deciding where to place and operate your
barbecue. Be sure to read the following
warnings before installing or using
your barbecue.
WARNINGS:
mOnly use this grill outdoors in a wellventilated area. Do not use in a garage,
building, breezeway, shed, hut or any
other enclosed area.
mYour Weber® gas barbecue must
never be used under an unprotected
combustible roof or overhang.
mYour Weber® gas barbecue is not
intended to be installed in or on
caravans and/or boats.
mDo not use the Weber® gas barbecue
in the boot of any vehicle, or inside an
estate car, people carrier, minibus or

use. Do not touch.
mDo not move the Weber® gas barbecue
when operating or while barbecue is
alight.
mWhen cooking, the appliance must be
on a level, stable surface in an area
clear of combustible material.
REMOVABLE CATCH PAN AND
DISPOSABLE DRIP PAN
Your barbecue was built with a grease collection
system, which funnels grease away from food and into a
removable catch pan. For your convenience, you can also
line the removable catch pan with a Weber® disposable
drip pan, which will help keep the removable catch pan
cleaner longer.
Cleaning the removable catch pan is just as important as
cleaning the cookbox. Check the removable catch pan
for grease build-up each time you use your barbecue.
Remove excess grease with a plastic scraper (1). Wash
the removable catch pan with warm, soapy water and
rinse with water.
mWARNING: Check the removable catch
pan or disposable drip pan for grease
build-up before each use. Remove
excess grease to avoid a grease fire.
A grease fire can cause serious bodily
injury or damage to property.
mCAUTION: Do not line the cookbox,
removable catch pan or disposable
drip pan with aluminium foil.

barbecuing TIPS & HELPFUL HINTS
TIPS & HINTS
•Always preheat the barbecue
before cooking. Set burner(s)
on high heat and close lid;
preheat for 10 to 15 minutes.
•The temperature of your gas
barbecue may run hotter than
normal for the first few uses.
•Recipe barbecuing times are
based on outside temperatures
of 70°F (21°C) and little or no
wind. Allow for more cooking
time on cold or windy days, or
at higher altitudes. Allow for
less cooking time in extremely
hot weather.
•Barbecuing conditions may
require adjustment of the
burner control knobs to
attain the correct cooking
temperatures.
•Sear meats and cook with
the lid down for perfectly
barbecued food every time.
•Crowding food onto a cooking
grate means more time will be
required to cook the food.
•Trim excess fat from steaks,
chops, and roasts, leaving
no more than a scant ¼ inch
(6.4 mm) of fat. Less fat makes
clean-up easier, and is a virtual
guarantee against unwanted
flare-ups.
•Foods in containers, such as
baked beans, will require more
time if barbecued in a deep
casserole than in a shallow
baking pan.
•Use tongs rather than a fork for
turning and handling meats to
avoid losing natural juices. Use
two spatulas for handling large
whole fish.
•Always be sure the cookbox and
removable catch pan are clean
and free from debris.
•Do not line the cookbox with
foil. This could prevent the
grease from flowing into the
removable catch pan.
•If an unwanted flare-up should
occur, turn burner(s) off and
move food to another area of
the cooking grate. Any flames
will quickly subside. After
flames subside, relight the
barbecue. NEVER USE WATER
TO EXTINGUISH FLAMES ON A
GAS barbecue.
•Using a timer will help to alert
you when “well done” is about
to become “overdone.”
•A light coating of oil will help
brown your food evenly and
keep it from sticking to the
cooking grate. Always brush
or spray oil onto your food, not
directly onto the cooking grate.
•In general, large pieces of meat
•When using a marinade, sauce
will require more cooking time

will require a container for
barbecuing. Disposable foil
pans are very convenient, but
any metal pan with ovenproof
handles can also be used.

WWW.WEBER.COM®
PREHEATING
Preheating the barbecue before barbecuing is important.
To preheat: Light your barbecue according to the
instructions in this Owner’s Guide; then turn burner(s) to
start/high ( ) position, close the lid, and preheat barbecue.
This will take 10 to 15 minutes depending on conditions
such as air temperature and wind. After preheating, you
can adjust the burner(s) as desired.
mWARNING: Should the burner(s) go out
while barbecue is in operation, turn
burner control knob(s) to off position.
Open the lid and wait five minutes
before attempting to relight barbecue,
using the igniting instructions.
COVERED COOKING
All barbecuing is done with the lid down to provide
uniform, evenly circulated heat. With the lid closed,
the gas barbecue cooks much like a convection oven.
The thermometer in the lid, a feature on some of our
barbecues, indicates the cooking temperature inside the
barbecue. All preheating and barbecuing is done with the
lid down. No peeking — heat is lost every time you lift the
lid.
GREASE COLLECTION SYSTEM
Unique cooking grate design features angled, cast-iron
rails that deflect drippings away from the burner tube(s),
preventing flare-ups that can char food. The remaining
drippings flow into a removable catch pan that slides out
for easy cleaning.

WEBER® SPIDER/INSECT SCREEN(S)
The combustion air opening(s) of the burner tube(s) (5)
is/are fitted with stainless steel screen(s) to help prevent
spiders and other insects from spinning webs and
building nests inside the venturi section (6) of the burner
tube(s). These nests can obstruct the normal gas flow,
and can cause gas to flow back out of the combustion
air opening(s) (7). Symptoms of this kind of obstruction
include the odour of gas in conjunction with burner flames
that appear yellow and lazy. This obstruction could result
in a fire in and around the gas valve(s), causing serious
damage to your barbecue (8).

NOTE: If a spider/insect screen becomes damaged or
cannot be cleaned, please contact the Customer Service
Representative in your area using the contact information
on our web site. Log onto www.weber.com®.
BURNER TUBE PORTS
Over time, from repeated use of the barbecue, the burner
tube ports will become dirty. Blocked and dirty ports can
restrict full gas flow. Following are ways to determine
whether burner tube ports are dirty or blocked.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
BEAUTIFUL—
INSIDE AND OUT
Weber® barbecue owners
take a lot of pride in their
barbecues. Flaunt your pride
and joy. Keep your barbecue
clean and beautiful—inside
and out—by following these
routine maintenance steps.
CLEANING THE OUTSIDE OF THE
barbecue
To keep the outside of your barbecue looking its best, use
the following guidelines for safe cleaning.
mWARNING: Turn your Weber® gas
barbecue off and wait for it to cool
before cleaning it.
Painted, Enamelled and Plastic Surfaces
Use a warm, soapy water solution to clean outside
surfaces; then rinse with water.
mWARNING: Check the removable catch
pan or disposable drip pan for grease
build-up before each use. Remove
excess grease to avoid a grease fire.
A grease fire can cause serious bodily
injury or damage to property.
mCAUTION: Do not line the cookbox,
removable catch pan or disposable
drip pan with aluminium foil.
IMPORTANT: Do not use cleaners that contain acid,
mineral spirits, or xylene. Do not use oven cleaner,
abrasive cleansers (kitchen cleansers), cleaners that
contain citrus products, or abrasive cleaning pads on
barbecue or cart surfaces.
1
Fold-out tables (Q® 1200, Q® 2000, Q® 2200) are not to
be used as cutting boards.
CLEANING THE INSIDE OF THE
barbecue
To keep your barbecue performing safely and efficiently, it
is important to remove any debris and excess grease that
may have accumulated on the inside of the barbecue. Use
the following guidelines for safe cleaning.
Inside Lid
Flaking, built-up grease resembles paint flakes. Wipe
inside of lid with paper towel to prevent grease buildup. Wash inside lid with warm, soapy water; then rinse
with water.
Cookbox Components & Burner Tube
You will need: A stainless steel bristle brush, and a stiff
plastic scraper.
A) Scrape and brush the cooking grates with the scraper
and brush. Remove the cooking grates and set aside.
mCAUTION: Barbecue brushes should
be checked for loose bristles and
excessive wear on a regular basis.
Replace brush if any loose bristles
are found on cooking grates or brush.
Weber recommends purchasing a new
stainless steel barbecue brush at the
beginning of every spring.
mCAUTION: Do not clean cooking grates
in a self-cleaning oven.
2
B) Brush any debris off of burner tube. Do not enlarge
burner ports (openings) running along length of
burner tube (1).
C) When cleaning is complete, replace the cooking
grates.
Cookbox
Wash inside of cookbox with warm, soapy water; then
rinse with water.
Removable Catch Pan and Disposable Drip Pan
Your barbecue was built with a grease collection
system, which funnels grease away from food and into a
removable catch pan. For your convenience, you can also
line the removable catch pan with a Weber® disposable
drip pan, which will help keep the removable catch pan
cleaner longer.
Cleaning the removable catch pan is just as important as
cleaning the cookbox. Check the removable catch pan
for grease build-up each time you use your barbecue.
Remove excess grease with a plastic scraper (2). Wash
the removable catch pan with warm, soapy water and
rinse with water.
To obtain replacement
disposable drip pans and
cooking grates, contact
the local retailer in
your area or log onto
www.weber.com®. If you need
further assistance, contact
your Customer Service
Representative.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
IGNITION SYSTEM OPERATIONS
The igniter supplies a spark to the igniter electrode
assembly. Whether you are performing routine
maintenance or a troubleshooting check on the ignition
system, read the following to keep your ignition system
working properly.
mWARNING: All gas controls and supply
valves should be in the OFF position.
If the igniter fails to ignite your Q® barbecue, you will need
to pinpoint where the problem is occurring: with the gas
flow or with the ignition system. Begin by attempting to
match light your burner. Refer to “BURNER IGNITION—
Lighting with a Match.” If match lighting is successful, the
problem lies in the ignition system.
MAINTAINING THE PUSH BUTTON
IGNITION SYSTEM
•
•
Check that both the white (1) and black (2) ignition
wires are attached properly.
Verify that the igniter button pushes in, clicks and
returns to the out position.
MAINTAINING THE ELECTRONIC
IGNITION SYSTEM
•
•
•
1
2
Verify that the AAA battery (alkaline only) is in good
condition and is installed correctly (3). Some batteries
have a plastic protective wrap around them. This
plastic must be removed before installing battery. Do
not confuse this plastic with the battery label.
Make sure that both igniter wires are properly attached
to the igniter module. Black wire to black terminal (4),
white wire to white terminal (5).
Make sure the electronic igniter button is working by
listening for clicking and looking for sparks at burner.
If the electronic ignition system still fails to ignite,
contact the Customer Service Representative in your
area using the contact information on our web site.
