    LOL: the real issue was that it had the on/off switch which I assumed was the only control on the light. If I had failed to find a switch at all, I would have (maybe) assumed it was position activated or something like that. I learn something new about Weber grills every day I mess with them it seems.

    It's not that it didn't have one. The one I was fooling with had a button. I pushed it and nothing happened, pushed it again and nothing. When I opened the lid I suddenly had light.

    Yep, same issue with me. You really run into a confusing situation when you are trying to figure it out and the switch is off and you open the grill and it doesn't come on so then you just think it is not working at all. That is what was kind of happening with me since I had the light off the grill and was simply holding it in my hands at whatever orientation was convienient. I was getting it to work intermittently and then all of a sudden it would turn off on me without me realizing it was how I was holding it. Then if the switch was off it wasn't working no matter what I did so, until I realized it was position sensitive, it was really confusing my old feeble brain cells. I was thinking a short circuit and even started tapping it on the table....

    The big Q is a truly great grilling machine. Everyone is different, but after I gave away my 200 and got a 3200 ($100), I found myself missing the mid-size Q. If you get the cart Weber makes for the 2000/2200 that looks just like the 3200 cart and set a 2200 on it (still readily removable), I think you get the best of both worlds. A nice-looking, great grilling deck machine and something ready to travel on short notice.
