As exposure to UV and other weather conditions are factors that affect the lifetime of the hose, the hose and regulator on your grill is designed in a way that allow for easy replacement.
Weber recommend replacing the hose and regulator every 5th year*. However, if the hose is damaged in any way, do not use the grill before a replacement is installed. Routine inspection is necessary to ensure a safe grilling experience.
To remove the hose and regulator, follow the steps below.
NOTE! Some connections utilize a left-handed thread. Turn clockwise to loosen!
- Disconnect regulator from gastank
- Locate hose and regulator connection
- Using two tools, either open-end- or adjustable wrench, turn clockwise to loosen while using the second tool to hold counter
- Remove the old hose an regulator set
- Repeat in reverse steps to fit the new hose and regulator. Turn counter-clockwise to tighten on units with left-handed threads.
- Check for gas leaks when the hose is securely fastened to the grill. Follow this link for a guide (insert link to other article)
*Please note: There may be local laws requiring a different frequency for when the hose should be replaced, in which case local laws overrule our recommendation.
