From kerosene heaters to outdoor grills, Charmglow appliances are specifically made with efficiency and durability in mind. However, statistics show that 30 percent or more of appliances can malfunction. When failures occur, count on Sears PartsDirect to have the repair parts you need to fix your Charmglow products.
The following list presents some typical issues you may encounter and how to assess them:
Your Charmglow kerosene heater won’t light—Make sure the tank is full and that the kerosene is fresh. Check the igniter and replace the igniter if it doesn't work. Check the wick. Replace the wick if it's damaged.
Your heater flicker starts but dies shortly after lighting—This could be caused by the presence of water in the kerosene. Empty the fuel tank and fill it up with fresh kerosene.
The kerosene heater burns with a smoky flame—This could simply indicate that you need to lower the wick slightly.
Your Charmglow outdoor grill burner won’t light—Check the burner tubes for debris such as spider webs. Clear out the debris for improved performance.
Your outdoor grill lights, but it is not hot enough—Issues with the gas flow can prevent the grill from getting hot. Simply adjust and align the gas grill components, such as the flavor bars, burner tubes and igniter.
If your Charmglow appliance does not respond to the troubleshooting methods listed above, it may be time to replace malfunctioning parts.
