CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS
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 grill. Shipping and handling may
loosen or damage a gas fitting.
m WARNING: The gas connections of your gas grill have been
factory tested. We do however recommend that you leak
check all gas connections before operating your gas grill.
m WARNING: Perform these leak checks even if your grill was
dealer or store assembled.
If your grill has a side burner, make sure the side burner is turned off.
Turn on gas supply at source.
m WARNING: Do not ignite burners when leak checking.
You will need: A soap and water solution and a rag or brush to apply it.
A) Mix soap and water.
B) Turn on gas supply (1).
C) Check for leaks by wetting the fitting with the soap and water solution and watching
for bubbles. If bubbles form, or if a bubble grows, there is a leak.
If there is a leak, turn off the gas and tighten the fitting. Turn the gas back on and
recheck with the soap and water solution. If leak does not stop, do not use the
grill. Contact the Customer Service representative in your area using the contact
information on our web site. Log onto www.weber.com.
D) When leak checking is complete, turn gas supply off at the source and rinse
connections with water.
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.
m WARNING: You should check for gas leaks every time you
disconnect and reconnect a gas fitting.
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.
