According to the manual for your grill, it may be converted to run on natural gas. You will need conversion kit number 710-0650 to make this change over. The manufacturer states you need a licensed technician to come out and make the conversion (for safety reasons). If you need, you can contact Sears Home Services to make arrangements for a technician to come out or you may get the kit and contact your local gas supplier to send one of their people out to take care of this.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

The difference between a LP barbecue and a NG barbecue is the regulator and the size of the hole in the tip of the orifice. Most manufacturers will tell you it is impossible to convert a grill or they will tell you there is only one specific conversion kit that has to be installed by a licensed technician because the liability in tremendous. No one wants to be responsible for some one causing a fire. If you have LP and install NG orifices (much larger hole because NG is a thicker gas) the flame will be 9-12" tall! NG regulates at 2-4" water column displacement and LP at 11" (always the same because it is in a container). To convert a grill from one to the other the regulator must be changed and the orifice must be changed on every valve. From LP to NG the orifice can be drilled because NG is a bigger hole. NG to LP the orifice has to be changed. With NG the necessary pressure can change depending on humidity, altitude, length of gas line, inner diameter of gas line and other factors so the regulator can be different. Manufacturer specs should be checked. If nothing is in the manual use 2" - 4" but know the pressure coming to the grill. Usually the gas line will be 2lbs psi and need to be stepped-down to 2-4" but if the gas line is running a long while or the inner diameter of the gas line is small more pressure may be used and a bigger regulator will be needed to step-down the pressure. 95% of the time you simply need to remove the old orifice, install the new orifice for LP or NG and then change the regulator. The manufacturer will tell you strict rules but the job is simple and common-sense-easy.

Thank you for your question on the low gas flow to the burners.

This is usually an indication that the pressure from the LP tank is locking down the regulator.

Try this process to see if it will help.

Turn the LP tank off and then remove the connector from the LP tank. Open all the burners and let stand for 10 minutes.

Then close all the burner valves and return the connector to the LP tank and make sure it is snug.

Then and this is the critical part, when you slowly open the valve on the LP tank only open it about a quarter of a turn. So you will be just barely cracking the valve open.

Then light the burner farthest from the LP tank first, and then the rest of the burners.

This is mostly what you have already done.

Please let me know if that worked. Sam A.

Your grill has a 1 year warranty so I think you will have to repair it or pay to have it repaired.

I agree there must be a leak behind the control panel causing the hot spot. I would remove the burner knob and bezel for the burner with the hot spot and light the burner. Don't get close to the burner valve just look to see if there is a flame behind it.

More than likely you will need to remove all the burner knobs and bezels and the screws that mount the control panel to the grill. You will need to locate the problem and replace or repair whatever is causing the gas leak.

I am sorry we don't have a manual showing how to access the burner valves on your grill.
