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?
You'll need to replace the igniter wire switch assembly. you can usually find them at the hardware store pretty cheap. follow the instructions and make sure the wire is properly shielded from the heat.
I purchased this grill and assembled it yesterday. I noted the area that is providing confusion as it is wrong. Please follow the following instructions. It is quite simple when you have a background in electrical and electronics engineering. These directions should translate my knowledge into step by step instructions for all. 1. Attach the two thinner wires with two terminals on each wire, from the front of the grill head to the larger (Input or Control) terminals on the igniter assembly. These two wires are from the push to turn micro switches on each of the burner control knobs on the grill head. Attach the two smaller terminals on these thinner wires to the micro switch on the side burner control connected as part of the regulator and hose assembly.
2. Attach the three thicker wires from the front of the grill head to three of the six smaller (output) terminals on the igniter assembly. These wires go to the igniters themselves. 3. Connect the two thicker wires from the rear of the grill head to two of the six output terminals on the igniter assembly. The small wire is for the igniter on the bottom infrared burner and the larger, thermally insulated wire, connects to the igniter on the rear infrared burner. 4. Connect the lead from the side burner to the remaining small output terminal on the igniter assembly. 5. Mount the igniter to the front of the right side shelf by removing the battery cover and hexagonal nut. Insert the shaft through the hole in the front of the right side shelf and secure with the hexagonal nut.Replace the battery cap.Do not install the battery at this time. 6.Mount the side burner control by inserting the long end of the control into the side burner assembly. Attach the control to the front of the right side shelf with the two screws held in the front of the control assembly. NOTE: You must remove the screws from the control assembly and insert them through the Off/On bezel and front panel of the right side shelf before screwing them back into the control assembly. Install the control knob for the right side shelf.Verify that the connections to the side burner control micro switch made in step 1 are still intact. 7.Insert the battery into the igniter assembly by removing the batter cap and inserting the AA size battery with the positive (pointed) end out. Replace the battery cap. 8.Test the igniter assembly prior to installing the gas tank and installing the “Flame Tamers” and grates by pushing in on each burner control knob in turn. Listen for a popping sound and look for sparks at each burner. I hope this helps. Ed Roberts President E. F. Roberts & Associates www.efrobertsassoc.com
