Gets Wet...Shorts Out
I'm a diehard Weber fan. Just replaced my 13 yo Q3200 grill with a new Q3200. My old grill was still working, and I passed it on to a friend who is now using it all the time.
I'm delighted with the new grills ease of assembly and all the usual great Weber quality....except for this handle light. It shorted out the first week of use. We had a light rain and even though the light was installed as per the directions, it still got water in it, and shorted out the light bulb
I took it off the grill, dried it out and replaced the batteries, still didn't work. I live in the desert and we do not cover stuff out here...my other weber was uncovered for 13 years...no prob. We do get showers now and then, and I also hose down the house....so the grill will get wet.
An outdoor light should not be so sensitive to moisture. Such a small thing to cast a negative shadow on a great grill.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback! We are sorry to hear that about your light. Our Customer Service team will reach out to you regarding the warranty on your light and to offer assistance.
