Gas Grill Bypass Mode

Quite often, customers will come to my Home Depot with a complaint that their gas grill suddenly doesn't get hot anymore. It worked fine last time, but now, it only gets to about 250°! That's not hot enough to cook.

Gas grills that have a regulator manufactured after 1995 all have a Bypass Device located inside the gas valve that connects to the L.P. gas cylinder. Here is a cutaway picture that illustrates it's location.

This device is designed to detect leaks and reduce the gas flow accordingly. If the igniting procedure is interrupted, it could cause an insufficient amount of gas flow to the burners. This anemic flow will prevent the grill from reaching temperatures suitable for cooking.

Follow the instructions in this video that Weber has produced to address this common issue. You will be up and grilling in no time!

Until next time, I'll see you in the aisles!
