KENMORE Gas Grill 141-152210 Kenmore 437 sq.

I didn't use the above for a long time. once i tried it didn't turn on. i then today took off the propane tank and then connected it slowly so the valve will work properly and it did but... - once i turn on the burners the valve part makes a loud noise. being that it is a live gas tank and i'm usually clueless i'm very concerned about this loud squeaking noise. Is it because i have a problem or maybe the tank is becoming low on propane ? please advise.

thanks

Amir

The gas regulator that attaches to the tank may be bad.

It is possible that your burners are clogged. Clean the burner ports with a paperclip (not a toothpick).

You need to get a new regulator first if that does not work check the air flow to the burners to make it higher

I have a weber s 620 made for propane but it was converted to natural gas. i had to replace the manifold and it is made for a propane so the grill is not getting hot what can i do?


You need have the orifices that match the fuel you're using - either propane or NatGas. Once you have the correct orifices installed, you should get the proper fuel flow. The propane is at a higher pressure, so the orifice for it is smaller than the ones needed for the lower pressure NatGas. Contact Weber for the kit needed for your model grill.

The problem you're having is related to the OPD Valve in the Propane Tank. But, it is solvable by following the instructions below.


1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a kenmore ellite bbq model 141.16691 propane - I want to convert to natural gas, there is no conversion kit to make it but the natural gas model 141.17691 is exactly the same - just natural gas. If...


Many manufacturers make grills in propane and natural gas, but are not convertible from one gas type to another. The reason being safety. Each grill model, whether it's Natural Gas or Propane is tested and approved for that one specific gas type and that alone. Converting it would put all the responsibility on you, if something was to go wrong.

I suspect in part, the reason you want to convert is so that you want have to refill the propane tank any longer. But, you may want to consider this against convenience. Propane Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment. Which boils down to lower high end temperatures, longer preheating times and the expense of running an approved gas line to the grill for Natural Gas. Not to mention the cost conversion parts.

But, the decision is yours to make. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I can't ignite the burners. Have full propane tank and ignitor is working


Let's get this corrected for your 4th of July Cookout.

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first & turn it to HIGH.
Did the burner light and the fa,e height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner exactly
the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem.
Always remember to turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly, as the regulator is locked up. You can pick one up from any home center or hardware store that sell grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem, Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Will not stay lit,I have a new gas tank and it light the first burner but will not light others and will not stay lit


Turn off the propane tank and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes, reconnect the hose and turn the tank valve on very, very slowly, until it's completely open.

Now light each burner one a time and turn it to high. If the burners all light and the flames remain burning on high for more than a few minutes, you're back in business. Just remember to turn the tank valve on very, very slowly after turning it off each time.

If the above didn't solve the problem, are you sure you tank gas a significant amount of gas in it?
If that's the case (empty tank), when you replace it, do exactly what I said above when you connect a full tank to the grill hose.

Hope that solved your problem. Happy Grilling!

Relace your propane regulator, they do go bad form sitting around, had the same problem you have. you should be able to disconnect from the grill, turn on the regulator and smell the propane, if not it's bad.

Gas grill lights but doesn't get very hot


I had this same problem especially when the tank on my 5 burner 2 year-old Kenmore was about half full. The solution above fixed it. I was used to opening the gas fully, turning one burner to high and clicking the button. If I would have read the front of the grill I would have seen that this was incorrect. I turned off the grill completely, unhooked the regulator and reconnected it. With one burner on high I began clicking the button BEFORE I turned on the gas. I slowly turned the gas on one quarter turn and it lit up full flame. I slowly turned the gas another quarter turn and lit the second burner. I slowly opened the gas all the way and lit the third and so on. That did the trick!
