Question about Kenmore 700 sq. in. Cooking Area Gas Grill 14116325

1 Answer

I have a kenmore 4 burner grill which is almost 2 yrs old. I barbeque all winter and when I turned the gas valve I heard a loud hiss and smelled gas. Sounds like a leaking hose. Sears wants $92 for the hose and regulator but this includes a whole assemble with 4 valves and intermediate hoses. Can just the bad feeder hose be replaced without danger? Thanks.

SOURCE: Replacing hoses and regulator on gas grill

I work for a propane co. I get many customers that bring in their melted or leaking bbq grill hoses and regs. Bring the bad hose/reg to your local propane gas co and see if they can make a custom hose for you. You may have to buy a new regulator to use it with the new hose, but that's better than buying a new grill. Call around first and see which ones can do it. You'll eventually find someone that can fix you up.

What is the life expectancy of a gas grill pressure regulator?


I've been in the propane business 28 years and have found regulators from the 1950's still in use today. Regulator manufacturers tell us they should be replaced after 25 years. It should typically outlast the grill itself, which often require new burners, cooking grids, etc. The hissing sound can just be the flow of gas thru the regulator. If you smell gas however, then you should replace it. If it is affecting the pressure to the burners and not getting hot enough to cook properly, then replace it as well.

Weber grill replaced hose because of faulty regulator had smelled gas and low cook temp. grill is 4 to 5 yrs old. Connected new hose did soapy water thing no leaks at hose connects. Still smell gas when...


Lisa, when you conducted the soapy water test, how long did you leave the soapy water on each fitting, before you determined there were no leaks? Sometimes, it can take 5 minutes or more for a leak to show up. You should also soap text the tank valve itself.

If no burners were ON when you tested for leaks (and apparently didn't find any), the problem still lies in the Hose/Regulator assembly connections or the tank valve, When you test the tank valve, do it after the valve has been opened very, very slowly (Slow motion, slow).

Hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem

BBQ galore Turbo 3-burner grill doe not receive gas from propane tank after working fine the day prior. Tried the "disconnect tank and open burners, then burners off and reconnect tank" approach...


Glad to hear you tried the things that have been recommended. However, if you DID NOT open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), there's the problem. Try it all over again, and this time open the tank valve, as I just described. Also, allow 5 minutes before reconnecting it to the tank.

If this doesn't solve the problem, you will need to purchase a new Regulator/Hose Assembly, as yours appears to be permanently locked up. They run about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes. After you install the new one, remember to always turn the gas valve ON very, very, slowly.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling.

When i push igniter it clicks but burners won't come on and i do not even smell gas , i burped it and turned gas tank upside down once, still won't work, grill is only 5 yrs old.


It sound s like the grill's regulator is locked up from "burping" the tank. Hopefully it's not a permanent lockup. To hopefully solve the problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Turn the burner(s) ON for 1 Minute, Then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes reconnect the hose to the tank and open the valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow
motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? Id so, light the remaining burner the way. Did it light and the
flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help).

If the above didn't solve the problem, the Hose/regulator Assembly needs to be replaced. What happened was this, when you turned the tank upside to "burp" the tank. The OPD Valve shot a hot load of gas to the regulator, when you opened it, as you normally would and permanently locked up the grill's regulator. That "burping" trick used to work with the old style tanks. Won't work with the new ones. You can get a new hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store, that sells grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes. Once you install the new one and connect it to the tank. Open the Valve Very, Very Slowly, until it is fully open. Or you may have the same problem again.

Hope this helped to solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

When I hook up the propane tank to the grill, I turn the tank on (open the valve) and I get an unusually loud hissing sound and I smell gas. I am afraid to try and light the grill.


You will get a hissing sound and smell gas if you wait too long to light it. You should be ready to light the stove as soon as you open the valve. If it doesn't light within a few seconds, turn off the gas, open the lid and wait a few minutes to try again.

I have a 4 burner elite, 9 years old. How do I adjust the flame? The knobs do very little. The flame is way to hot. Is there an adjustment in the valve?


Are the knobs just turning on their shafts? Or are the knobs and shafts turning? Hopefully, it the first thing, because it is repairable by replacing the knobs. Which can be ordered directly from BBQ's Galore.

It that's not the case, then ALL of the burner valves will need to be replaced. As, there is no adjustment. replacing all he burner valves is not an easy task. It's similar to rebuilding the head of the grill. If it's as old as you say, you'd probably be better off replacing the whole grill with a newer model.

Gas will not flow to burner to light grill?


The new style OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem

Kenmore Elite 17680 gas grill needs a new burner. I purchased the burner, but do not know how to install it. Can this be done as "do it yourself" or does it require a serviceman?


I had a local barbeque grill retailer ( a fireplace and barbeque store which did repairs) install a new one for me. I didn't want to mess with the venturi tubes and the exact length of the openings so it would work. I am glad I did as it works perfectly.
