Weber Genesis Silver Parts A, B and C Model

Weber Genesis Silver Replacement Parts A, B, and C Models

Some of the great inventions happened at the beginning of the 21st century, and Weber Genesis A, B, and C models were a few of them. These were in production between 2000 to 20005, and we have seen some meaningful styling modifications in these five years. 

Weber Genesis Silver Parts A, B and C Models

If I summarize my whole ten years of experience with these, the Weber Genesis Silver A, B, and C models are a great choice for anyone looking for a reliable, easy-to-use gas grill. These grills are all built with high-quality materials and features and offer excellent performance.

However, since the 10-year warranty on all these models is over now, finding their replacement parts has always been challenging. So I decided to review all the major parts of these grills in detail, along with their links, so you can buy them easily. Keep reading!

NOTE: Although there are some original differences between the Weber Genesis Silver A, B, and C, you may find similar parts, such as the hood and grates. For example, the Genesis Silver A has grates made of porcelain-coated steel. However, you can find these in stainless steel as well.

Weber Genesis Silver A, B, and C Replacement Parts

Although the list and names of the parts of Weber Genesis A, B, and C are the same, there are some differences between a few. Therefore, I have decided to tell you about all the parts in detail, including their operation, specifications, features, and more. 

Burner tubes

The burner tubes are the heart of the grill. They are responsible for heating up the air that flows through the flavorizer bars and cooks the food. Silver A has two burner tubes, Silver B has three, and Silver C has three burner tubes, where one is a side burner.

All the models have burner tubes made of stainless steel. However, the difference lies in the dimensions, alongside the number of tubes. The dual tubes of Silver A are 27 x 1 x 1 inches, while the triple-tubes on both Silver B and C are 28 x 1 x 1 inches in size. 

Remember, I have received 1 crossover tube within the package, so you’ll as well. The installation for all three models is pretty easy if you have the user manual handy. The whole procedure of disassembling and assembling the burner tubes takes less than 1 hour.

Grates

The grates are the surface that the food cooks on. They are made of either porcelain-coated steel or stainless steel for the Weber Silver series. Originally, Silver A and Silver B had porcelain-coated steel grates, while Silver C had stainless steel grates—now, they are available in both materials.

You can buy either porcelain-coated steel grates or go for stainless steel ones for all three models. But here is a catch—the size varies. The burner tubes for Silver A must have a length of 14.9 – 15 inches, while for Silver B and C, the burner tubes’ length must be 17 – 17.4 inches to fit perfectly.  

Flavorizer bars

The flavorizer bars are located directly above the burner tubes. They help to disperse the heat uniformly and prevent flare-ups. Silver A, Silver B, and Silver C all have stainless steel flavorizer bars, although these are now also available in porcelain-enameled. 

However, the size of the flavorizer bars varies for each model. Silver A has these bars of 21.5 inches in length, while both Silver B and C are compatible with bars of 22.5 inches in length. 

Catch pan holder

Weber Catch Pan and Holder

The catch pan holder, as the name suggests, is a metal bracket that holds the catch pan in place. The catch pan is a metal pan that collects grease and food drippings from the grill. 

Typically made of easy-to-clean stainless steel to resist rust, this pan holder is the same for Silver A, B, and C. With dimensions of 8.3 x 7.8 x 10 inches, you can install it easily on all the models. 

Drip tray

The drip tray is a rectangular pan located underneath the grill to collect grease and food drippings from the grill and is held in place by the catch pan holder. The catch pan sits underneath the drip tray and helps to catch any grease or food drippings that fall through the drip tray

The drip tray is the same size as Silver B and C with dimensions of 17 7/8″ wide x 11 3/4″ deep x 3 1/4″ tall, but different for Silver A with 16 3/4″ long x 9 1/4″ wide and 3″ deep dimensions. The drip tray is made of porcelain-coated steel to last long and save money in the long run.

Propane hose kit

Weber Hose and Regulator Kit, for select Genesis and Summit Gas Grills

The propane hose kit includes a hose, a regulator, and a shut-off valve. The hose connects the grill to the propane tank, the regulator controls the gas flow through the hose, and the shut-off valve allows you to stop the gas flow to the grill.

Cover

Simply put, the cover protects the grill from the elements when it is not in use. Made of high-quality polyester fabrics, I love its capability to protect my Silver B grills against UV light and water particles. I can also clean the collected dirt from it easily. 

Interestingly, the fabric feels soft to my hands when putting on the grill, and the large Velcro straps attached to the cover make it straightforward to secure in place. I can easily tighten the cover as wanted so the winds don’t fly away my investments on windy days.

Weber Genesis Silver Parts Diagram

Parts Diagrams: You can find parts diagrams for the Weber Genesis Silver grills on the Weber website or authorized parts retailers. These diagrams typically show exploded views of the grill with labeled components. By searching for your specific model number (should be located on a plate on the grill frame), you can find a relevant diagram.

Repair Guides: Some websites offer repair guides for Weber grills, which might include disassembly instructions and diagrams. These can be helpful for understanding the layout of the grill and identifying parts.

Which Is Best: Weber Genesis Silver A, B, Or C?

In terms of performance, all three models are very similar. They all have a powerful burner system that can heat quickly and evenly. The main difference between the three models is the number of burners and the cart size. 

If you need a grill with a lot of cooking space, the Silver C is the best option. If you need a smaller grill or you don’t need a side burner, the Silver A or Silver B would be a good choice. Opt for the one that complements your needs and preferences. 

Why Weber Genesis Silver Parts Don’t Run for Long Time

Hey there! Let’s talk about why your Weber Genesis Silver grill might not be working as well as it should. Just like any other appliance, these grills need some love and care to keep them cooking up a storm. Here are some common problems and how to fix them:

  1. Burner Issues: You know those parts that make the flames? Yeah, those are called burners. If they get all gunked up, rusty, or broken, your grill won’t heat up like it should. Signs of burner trouble include:
  • Flames that are too low or not even
  • Flames that look yellow or orange
  • Flames that keep going out
  • Smells like gas or makes a hissing noise To keep your burners in good shape, give them a scrub with a wire brush now and then, and check for any cracks or holes. If they’re really worn out, it’s time for some new ones.
  1. Flavorizer Bars Issues: These bars do more than just sit there—they help make your food taste amazing! But if they get all greasy and grimy over time, they can start causing problems like:
  • Too much smoke or flare-ups
  • Food that doesn’t taste quite right or cooks unevenly
  • Bars that look rusty or busted Keep them clean by scraping off the gunk regularly and wiping them down. And if they’re looking worse for wear, it might be time for a replacement.
  1. Igniter Issues: Ever try to start your grill and it just won’t light up? That could be because of issues with the igniter—the thing that sparks the gas. Signs of igniter trouble include:
  • No spark or a weak spark
  • Clicking noises but no flame
  • No noise or light when you try to start it up Check the batteries, wires, and all that jazz to make sure everything’s clean and connected like it should be. If not, you might need to swap out the igniter for a new one.

So there you have it—some common problems and how to tackle them to keep your Weber Genesis Silver grill in tip-top shape!

Tips To Take Care Of Your Weber Genesis Silver Grill

The following are some tips for extending the life of your Weber Genesis Silver grill.

  • Clean the grill regularly.
  • Store the grill in a covered area when not in use.
  • Use high-quality propane fuel.
  • Have the grill serviced by a qualified technician annually.
  • Cleaning:
    • After each use, preheat the grill to high for 10-15 minutes to burn off any leftover food particles.
    • Once the grill is cool, use a grill brush to scrub the grates. You can also use a soapy water solution on the grates.
    • Clean the exterior of the grill with a damp cloth and soapy water.
  • Prevent rust:
    • After cleaning and drying the grill, apply a thin coat of cooking oil to the grates and exterior surfaces to prevent rust.
  • Maintaining the burners:
    • Regularly inspect the burners for blockages or damage. You can use a pipe cleaner to clean out any debris from the burner tubes.
    • If the burners are damaged, they will need to be replaced.
  • Cover it up:
    • When not in use, cover your grill with a grill cover. This will help to protect it from the elements and prevent rust.
  • Here are some additional things to keep in mind:
  • Replacement parts: The Weber Genesis Silver grills were manufactured between 2000 and 2005, so the warranty has expired. However, replacement parts are still readily available online and at some hardware stores.
  • Stainless steel vs. porcelain enameled: When replacing parts, consider opting for stainless steel grates and Flavorizer bars over porcelain enameled. Stainless steel is more durable and will last longer.
