Amana grill - what is the thing on the chain?

My new grill (an Amana AM26LP from Target) came with a thin wire rod bent into circles on the ends, attached to the grill by a chain. What is it? There is no picture or mention of it in the manual.

    Yes, I've grilled 3 times with it so far. I like it. Not sure what kind of banging up a grill is going to receive. I got a nice thick cover for mine. This is an upgrade from our old WalMart grill. We got a great clearance price, too. $89 down from $300. I'd recommend it at a sale price for sure.

Without seeing it firsthand I'm not certain, but it sounds similar to my grill at home - it's probably used to hold a match down near the burner (therefore keeping your hand at a safe distance) in case the ignitor fails.

I've been considering buying this grill, there are 4 of them on clearance at my local Target for $45!! I know that's a great price (better than $180), but I'm concerned about the quality. I've heard that it bangs up pretty easily (thin metal construction) Have you used yours at all, and if so, what do you think so far?

Timing chain

bent push rods could have been caused when the chain broke and not from the chain been replaced wrong or the timing out.

if the engine was running when the chain broke the cam would have stopped leaving all the valves in the same positon as the mometum of the fly wheel continued to turn the pistons in the cylendars could hav come up and hitting the valves and bending the push rods. and or damaging the cylendar head.

recommend removing the head and have it checked for damage, as well as replacing the bent push rods, and cylendar gaskit. once the head is checked and the valves are seated well. then replace and follow instructions in the set up for the pistons and cam prior to replacing the chain and setting the timing.

I hope this was helpful.

Attempting to tow my 2002 foed exployer from a ditch I hooked a chain to the dricer side tie rod. It bent> I have unhooked the end of the tie rod from the wheel and now need to take the end of the rod...

I would count the number of threads exposed at the point of adjustment and duplicate those on the new. This will get you close enough to be safe but replacing any part that can affect tracking needs to be also brought in for alignment, otherwise you may have a tendency to pull left or right and experience uneven and abnormal tire wear.

Inner tie rod bent on a 1998 Mystique GS; how to remove? A diagram would be great.

If the steering rack is good & your keeping it,
you go to a front end shop,not a chain store place

There are special tools to remove the inner tie
rod & then it has to be aligned

If you bent a tie rod, I suspect the rack is ruined
& who knows what else!

I got a spring problem, How do I get it back into the connector so it stays right there by the jack?

This is what I did after I couldn't find an answer online. Took the fat end, and kind of like a key chain ring, bent the last tiny bit where the spring ends. Then took this bent bit and then like a screw lead that into the jack end. From there just go in a circle and push the next bit of the spring into the jack end in a circle until all of the thicker spring part is back up and under the lip of the jack.

I hit a hole backing out of a driveway and after i heard a noise in the front end from hitting a hole the front tire started to wobble and pull to the left, something is wrong please tell me what

This could be a few things, first try switching a rear tire to the front and see if that helps, you may have bent the rim but you would need to look at it and see is the rim is bent then look at the tie rod end to see if its bent, you could have bent the strut or lower control arm too. i would take a look at the tie rod end and see if its bent, here the thing, you say it wobbles and pulls, a tie rod end or strut or control arm will make the car pull but not wobble, a wobble would be caused by a bent rim or tire witth a bubble and this can make the car pull, tire putting the spare tire on and see if it still pulls and wobbles, if it doesnt then you know its the rim or tire, hope this helps.

What is the chain on the side of my grill for? Kenmore Grill with 100% Infrared Cooking System Sold by Sears | Sears Item# 07116650000 | Model# 464222209

I have either the same grill, or one very similar (Kenmore infrared grill) and just assembled it yesterday and had the same question! I don't believe it's a safety chain. It hangs from the left front corner of the main grill body, and it has some sort of curled wire thingy on the end of the chain. The chain is definitely not thick enough to secure the grill. I looked through the assembly instructions a few times and could not find reference to what it's for. Any other ideas?

There is an oil leak from the push rod so i am trying to replace the rod and the seal... thing is i don't know how to do that

The only push rod in your bike is the clutch push rod. It is on the left side of the engine and between the flywheel and the chain sprocket. Just remove the left side chain cover to gain access to the rod. Pull the rod out of the center casing then use a screwdriver to pry the old seal out. Then just put a new seal in its' place and re-install the rod. The rod will not need to be replaced unless it is bent or is pitted from rust where it runs through the seal.

Missing a tray (1) - new purchase

Return it to Target ASAP; not only is the mfr. going to be unwilling to just send you a tray, but the item was proabably made in China and parts may not even be available in the US. In my experience, Target plays fairer than most at making things right.
