Q:

Kenmore Gas Grill, 146.16132110.

A:

You can think of a searing station as an extra burner. It is use for searing meat prior to cooking. Searing locks in the juices and browns the meat. If you use it as an extra burner, make sure you turn down the flame before using.

Hello Richard,

I would like to answer your question and assist you. The searing burner is a super hot burner for searing meat to seal in the meat juices. To use the burner turn it on and wait about 5 minutes for it to heat up. Use a little oil on the grate or directly coat the meat lightly prior to putting it on the searing burner, to prevent it from sticking.

Lay the meat on the grill and wait only about 2 minutes and rotate the meat a half turn to get the grill marks pattern on the meat. Depending on the thickness of the meat you will only have to wait a couple more minutes before you flip the meat over and repeat the procedure. You can continue to cook the meat on the searing burner if you can turn it down on your model or move it off the searing area to a cooler part of the grill and continue cooking until you have the desired doneness you like. Let the meat stand for about 5 minutes loosely covered with foil to let the meat juices move back into the meat before you cut or serve.

Please let me know if you would like any further assistance.

No bad jerry. i have an all-infrared grill that's very hot all the time. the sear burners can be adjusted but there is only so much range. The thing to remember with infrared burners is heat is direct off the flame. With a traditional "blue-flame" bbq burner the closed hood causes heat to build-up and surround the food with hot air. An infrared burner direct-heats the food above it. This is very different. For instance, even if you could close the hood of a blue-flame bbq and build up to 1200 degrees this would not be the same as an infrared grill because the infrared heat is not conducted in air or radiated off briquettes. The only difference I would suggest from jerry's message above is to move the steak/fish/burgers every 10 - 15 seconds for the first minute of searing. Using oil will interrupt your dry rub or marinade. A cooking grate makes a huge differential in heat because of the direct heat of an infrared burner. it is possible to have strips in the meat of cooked and raw meat because of the grates. I have posted a lot if images showing this on our blog. instead of using oil to stop sticking move the food very slightly -- about the space of a single space of a grid or quarter-turn the food every 15 seconds. This will give the food a better sear and stop sticking. A better sear means the outer layer f food is sealed so moisture cannot drip. lots of flavor when cooked this way. Also, an experienced grilling tip for infrared amazement: use marinade then dry rub then a good tenderizer with razors. Pack the flavor in the steak and sear fast above 1000 degrees and you'll never be able to justify spending eighty dollars on a fancy steak again!

I would love to write a scathing review on this grill. I bought it three years ago brand new from SEARS. After one year, I had to replace the drip pan because it rotted out. Now after 3 years, everything inside the grill has corroded beyond function. I always kept it covered when not in use. I've owned a lot of grills in my life but this was the biggest POS I have ever had.

I just found out this saw was recalled, and was mad as hell since I had also never seen the recall on the Sears site, only through word of mouth some 20+ years on. I lost the end of my index finger due to this very problem, and since I registered my product (a long, long time agao at purchase, I have never been notifieed of a recall and only found this thanks to someone pointing i out in a forum. The fact is, the $100 check is a rebate check and a joke if you suffered an injury like I did. I just sent off my 3rd email about this, as my saw is in near mint condition and has been well cared for. I only found the recall last week by pure accident, even though I registered my product like I do with all my tools. The kick in the teeth is that to even find workable parts, the price tag runs well over $600 as far as I can tell, and if the parts are not available, a new saw like this is between $1000-$1500. Instead of a check for a measly $100, how about covering the cost of a new finger tip Sears? Do they even understand the pain, loss and work issues a guy goes through after something like this? And at the time, they basically skirted the issue and made me feel like I had been the one at fault. Not cool.

Q:

repairing 15215 sears air compressor

A:

I am sorry you are having a problem with the air compressor. In the details of the question, you did not state how the unit is not working. If the motor is running but not building pressure the problem may be just a line leaking between the pump and tank. This inexpensive repair would be worth doing. If the motor will not make any noise, the problem could be a defective on/off switch or pressure switch. If that is the case, the parts do not cost that much. If the motor was the problem, it is not likely worth repairing.

 

If you could reply below with more details, I will be happy to give you some advice on how to diagnose the air compressor.  

 

 

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

A:

Allyn, If the motor will not run when it is turned on, I recommend removing the cover to access the motor. Then smell the motor with the unit unplugged. If the burning smell is stronger near the motor, I suspect the motor failed. If this were the case, I would recommend purchasing a new unit. Please let me know what you find.

This product is poor. You can see a photo of it in the dictionary under the word poor. After installing 1000 sq ft of hardwood floor and filling three car tires the 1/2 inch drive shaft on the large fly wheel broke in two. In 40 years of handyman construction work I never shattered anything that was 1/2 inch metal. I've had the product a total 180 days - beyond the 90 day warranty so I'm stuck with the repair. Most of my tools are Craftsman - that is a trend that I will change from now on. Sears was a good brand - but is now the same as poor in my book
