Is it brand new? Call Weber customer service and get a new one.

This won't give you the specifics on how to adjust your thermometer, but it is a pretty cool poster:

BTW, when I googled "weber thermometer calibration" your question on this came up on the bottom of the first google page.

Yep, mine is so far off that it is worthless. Buy a digital and stick in one of the lid vents, when my digital reads 330 the weber lid thermo is up to about 210 or so.

You can't calibrate the Weber thermometers.

For a few dollars more than the Weber replacements, you can get a Tel-Tru for the Genesis-same as the Performers/Master-Touch etc.
