Q:

Burner Warranty 14116315800 Kenmore Gas grill

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
It appears this unit was manufactured in or around 2007, and I do see the 10 year limited warranty for the stainless steel burners, so the parts will be covered under the warranty.
To set up service under this limited warranty, you can call 1-800-469-4663 and ask to speak with 'Repair and Warranty.'
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Q:

My Kenmore grill has uneven heat, with the front of the grill much hotter than the rear. It's model 141-16315800. Is this something I can fix?

A:

Outdoor grilling is an American pastime and no grill chef can make due with the uneven flames shown in the picture for your grill. I searched and found a similar problem from a previous expert post that looks like it may have an answer. If you can add the model number of your grill to this post, it will help the expert provide a better answer. I attached the link below. Hope this helps get your grill ready for grill season.

Here's an image of the model sticker. It's the number I reported in the original question. It's a Kenmore Elite grill with 5 burners and an infared burner on the back panel. As for the reference to another question, that suggestion was to adjust the air flow to the burners to increase total volume. I have hot spots which are not due to wear since they were there when the grill was new. Perhaps an expert can confirm that lowering the air flow (or increasing it?) would eliminate the front flares without diminishing the rear heat. Thanks.

Check the burner tubes for deposits on the ports that are on each side. I know that you indicated that this has been a problem since you bought the grill but clogs or deposits on those ports could be contributing to the problem. I recommend that you clean the burner tubes according to the guidelines in your owner's manual. Here is a link for the owner's manual in case you need it: Owner's Manual . If these tips don't help, I recommend that you replace one of the burner tubes (part P020080364) and see if that corrects the problem on that burner. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. If the flames on the replaced burner are even then you can replace the other burner tubes to correct this problem.

Lyle, thanks for the response. Looking at the flame photos above it appears that my burner ports are open from one end to the other - but it's worth a try to replace one as a test to solve this problem. That brings me to my next issue - it appears the screws that hold the burners in place are rusted over. I can't even see the phillips mark on the right burners' screw, and the left burner's screw chipped apart when I applied light pressure to it! Sears assembled my grill so I don't know what type of screws they used here, but they don't look anodized! What can I do to get the burner out now? Ugh.

Alternatively, is there some material I can use to mask the very front end of the burner tube so the flame opening is diminished there? That may be the cheapest fix.

A:

The fasteners on the burners were probably Phillips head screws. They appear to be too corroded to be removed. You would probably have to drill those out and use a bolt and nut to install a new burner. Based on the corrosion shown in the image, it is possible that then ports on the font of the tube are corroded and have expanded due to that corrosion. There is not any material that will mask the front of that burner tube that I know of. I recommend that you try replacing one of the burner tubes as indicated above to see if that will solve your problem.

Lyle, thanks again for your suggestions. I agree that to replace the burner I'm going to have to drill out the screws. I don't like that, but more importantly, I'm not convinced it will change because the design of the burner may be to pass more gas in the front near the ignition than the rear. Please see the attached photos that show more gas being emitted opposite the igniter. Do you have someone who knows this grill's design who could check this for me? Maybe it's part of the design to burn hotter in the front - again, I don't like it, but the grill cost less than an Jennaire, too. I won't do the drill outs, so it will cost me a service technician ($96) plus the cost of new burners (around $100) if I assume the burners are corroded. I'd like to find out if this is something I have to live with before making that investment. The grill cost me $399. Thanks again for your help.

A:

The design of the burner is to distribute gas evenly from front to back. Based on your latest pictures, it is possible that you have debris inside those burner tubes since the ports appear to be clear and intact. I suspect that you will need to remove the burner tubes if you want to fix this problem. Since you are not able to remove the burner tubes due to the corroded fasteners, you will likely need to have a service technician fix this problem. If you were able to remove a burner and clean it, you would likely see that the burner has a relatively even flame. If the burners are completely clean (or replaced) and you still have a problem with the yellow flames at the front of the burners, you could have a problem with the pressure regulator or the alignment of the burners. A service technician will normally need to physically examine the grill to diagnose and repair this type of problem. I checked with the manufacturer and verified that the flames are designed to be relatively even from the front of the burner to the back. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

Lyle, the photos in my recent post were taken after I 'reset' the regulator according to the instructions I received by phone from the customer service rep at the phone number in the owners manual. She said to remove the regulator from the gas tank for 10 minutes, and then reconnect but only turn the tank valve 1/4 turn before igniting. I did all that but the problem remains. If you take a closer look at the burner holes in the recent photo, do you see that one hole opposite the igniter is larger and emits a larger flame which contributes to the flare up? There is also an opening under the burner at that point. Each burner has this same design. Can you ask the manufacturer to look at that photo and tell if this burner is misaligned? It's the same for all 5, so it's not a one burner issue.

A:

I showed your most recent pictures to the manufacturer representative. He indicates that the burner is likely corroded or clogged. The opening under the burner is normal. The hole opposite of the igniter is normal. It is likely that you either have debris in the burner or corrosion that is causing the irregular flame. You can try cleaning the burners but the manufacturer representative recommends that you replace the burners based on the corrosion that is evident in the picture that shows the back of the burner.
