What do you want to know? Weber customer service is great!

My old 1000 is still running strong.

Pics would help!
Weber Genesis are very easy to refurbish, you just need to know which model you have.

Genesis Silver C


Weber Junior


Genesis Silver B


Another Silver B


Weber 1000


My Weber 1000 Coffee Roaster

Once you know the model you have the schematics will help you in identifying any parts you may need. Pretty much all in the way of tools needed are phillips screwdriver and a 7/16" wrench. The Weber homepage has downloadable instruction manuals if you need them too. I will scour CL for old freebie Webers just for some hard to find parts or use the frames for rolling carts.

Lets see some before and after pics!

I fixed up a Weber Genesis 1000, easy to make it like new. I put stainless steel burniners in it, new knobs and a new starter. It sat for most of its life without a cover... so all of the wood on it was rotten. I made all new slats and a new lid handle from a board of cypress and sealed them with a deck sealant.

should last another 20 years or so :)

If you go to thier website they will show illustrations with stuff like"does your product look like this? or this?"

It's pretty self explanatory for the most part. My Genesis is about 12 now. Still has the original ignitor, got new shelves, flavorizor bars, cast iron grates, and burners a couple years back, but about all I use it now for is storage for BGE accessories!

ok, found the tag under but on the burner control panel. interesting as mine looks like the gen 3000 manual. the tag states that my mod is 470000 but it doesn't look like the gen 4000 model manual. go figure. weber doesn't accept the ser number. will call. i'm getting jazzed.

Sweet deal at $50, and will outlast/outperform many new grills on the market today :)

I have a question to all you Weber experts out there.

My Weber Genesis is red, and looks exactly like the one above, except for the wire shelf at the bottom, mine has the wood slats like the side shelf. I noticed on the user guide for the Gen 1000 from weber.com it also shows a wire shelf. Does that mean I have an earlier version? Maybe a Genesis 1?

Try to post a pic tonight.
