Grill Repair – Replacing the Hose & Regulator (Weber Part # 65909)


The regulator and hose assembly connects the
propane model to the grill. It reduces the high-pressure gas coming from
the bottle to the correct pressure meter for the grills burners. There are a few problems that can occur to
your regulator and hose assembly. Propane bottles should only be filled to 80%
of capacity. if overfilled liquid propane can enter the
regulator and plugin. The regulator may fail and allow too much
or too little gas to enter the grill. The hose can crack after years of use and
the bottle fitting can wear out or crack.Replacing the regulator and hose assembly is repair
that you can do yourself and I’m going to show you how. Hi, I’m Mark Sodja. Do-it-yourself repairs like these are easier
than you might think. From lawn machines to cordless drills, kitchen
mixers, outdoor grills, our how-to videos walk you through each repair from start to
finish. Doing it yourself means never having to do
it alone. Let’s get started.The rubber propane hose
connects to the grill in the very back of the grill cabinet. To make this a little easier to do I’m going
to remove the bracket that secures the two fittings together and bring the assembly to
the front of the grill. The bracket is secured with two bolts on the
outside of the cabinet. I’ll go ahead and remove those. Now I can pull the hose connections to the
front of the cabinet. Now I can remove the rubber hose from the
connection on the bracket. I’ll use two adjustable wrenches to do this. The rubber hole passes through this ring inside
the drill cabinet and I’ll pull the hose out of it.Here I have my new regulator and hose
assembly. I’ll thread the rubber hose back through the
ring and reconnect it at the bracket and I’ll secure this with two adjustable wrenches. Now I need to check this connection for any
leaks. To do this I would reattach the regulator
to the propane bottle and turn the propane on. For the video I’m not going to actually touch
your two propane then I use a little soapy water on the fitting. I just apply the soapy water all over the
fitting and if there are any propane leaks the soap would begin to bubble. You can go ahead and just check the entire
connection as you do this.Obviously, we’re not going to see anything because we don’t
have it hooked up to propane but if there were leak you’d start to see bubbles form
around the fitting where the leak was. Now I reinstall the bracket to the side of
the cabinet. This is easiest done with two people one to
hold the bracket and one to secure the fasteners. If you’re working by yourself though at a
minimum you’ll want to remove the door. To remove the door you just simply put a screwdriver
on the lever through this opening and pull down on the lever and the door will come right
off. I’ll finish by reattaching the door.Be sure

  1. Is there a better (than Weber OE) regulator available from eReplacementParts.com? The Weber one pictured here (and on mine) is complete junk. It uses plastic "fingers" to hold tension on the brass cone that seals against the tanks' rubber seal. This is insufficient to prevent leaks even brand new, let alone after a few years when these begin getting weak, or brittle and breaking off… My old grill's regulator (thank God I saved it) had a full brass collar there that will never wear out, and makes a good seal even on tanks with a "less-than-pristine rubber seal", but it uses a male threaded end to connect to the regulated side of the valve, making it unsuitable for use on my Weber (although I suspect I could find a fitting somewhere to make it work).

  2. The grill is your basic, but classic, Weber kettle.>>> t.co/tSbcdV3wDF  Heats up well when the coals are properly lit… I recommend getting a chimney to help your lighting!

  3. Thank you for sharing! We couldn’t figure out how to get the pieces off to replace the regulator!! 🤣

  4. Fantastic! This was very helpful! Wasn’t sure which nut stayed in place and which turned to remove the hose — but this gave me all the hints I needed to do the job quickly! Thanks so much!

  5. I can’t get the fucking regulator hose off. It’s too tight. What can i do? I’ve tried everything

  6. Just for the novice, Like me!, you should explain that the gas tank needs to be removed!

  7. Thank you so much, I never would have had the courage to attempt this without your video!
