Q:

gas grill parts

A:

The grills do start rusting out after awhile and if the part is not available, the options may be having something fabricated or buying a new grill. Looking at the parts diagrams, it seems like this may be part of the main burner box instead of a separate part. The expert will review and respond with the best alternatives. I did attach the owner's manual if you need to check there for additional parts information. I hope this link helps to find just this piece.

Thank you for your question on the heat shield for the BBQ grill.

The heat shield for this grill is part of the base. In looking at the parts list the base is not a part you can order for replacement.

If you are concerned with replacing this heat shield you could drill out the rivets and purchase a piece of sheet metal and cut it to size and pop rivet it into the same location.

Q:

I have a Kenmore Gas grill (415.16115). Never had any trouble getting it to light until today. We did a tank exchange instead of having it refilled like usual

A:

I know that it can be frustrating for the grill to not work properly. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found a link that will provide some information and troubleshooting for the issue. I hope this link will help.

A:

The problem could very well be the tank. Propane tanks have a safety device in them to help prevent an explosion if a line were to burst or if the regulator were to blow out. What this device does is "see" a sudden release of propane and then shut off so no more propane escapes the tank.

The device can sometimes be pretty sensitive and the way to overcome that is turn the tank valve slowly open about 1/2 of a turn and then light the grill and slowly turn the tank valve on to about half way. If you turn the valve open too fast it can trigger the valve. If the tank is open all the way and the burners on high I have seen the tank device trip and shut the gas off.

This problem may not be the tank at all, but it is very possible. If it's not the tank safety then I would think there is an issue with the regulator. I do not think that there is a blockage because the grill lit in the first place and seemed completely normal.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

We got the tank at one of the self-serve tank exchange kiosks outside Menards since our usual place was closed for some reason. We usually just refill the tank we've had for years and had no problem with it. Last night I tried the tips found in the link provided by aashe and had no luck. This morning I priced new regulator & found the assembly to be pretty expensive ($60), combined with the parts I already planned to replace this year (main burners, flame carry-over tube, & heat tents) the total price came to $133 + tax. That doesn't gtd to fix the problem. So I priced a new grill & found a similar one (probably updated model) on sale for $180 that can be put on lay-away. Pretty sure we decided to go new since last night I found enough going wrong with the old one that I think it would be worth it not to mention safer (rusted/corroded screws, bottom falling off-back part only hanging on due to grease catcher, etc). However, it would be nice to have access to a grill until the new one is out of lay-away. So, does the safety device re-set itself? I'd be willing to give it another try making sure to turn the valve slowly. Everyone - thanks for your assisstance in this matter...

Yes, when you turn the tank valve off and wait about 20 seconds it should reset since it doesn't sense "out" pressure. I meant to tell you that it does reset, I'm sorry. Give it a shot and see what happens.

Summer evenings are great for grilling but light is needed so those steaks are not burned. I was able to locate the owner's manual and attached in the link below. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to replace the batteries.

The night cooking light batteries are located in the handle of the lid.

The spark igniter is located behind the button on the control panel and it unscrews and uses 1 AA battery.

I have e-mailed you a copy of the owner's manual.

Reference pages 21 and 22 in the manual.

I hope this will work for you.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
