Kenmore gas grill

Just bought a Kenmore duel fuel grill and have converted it over to natural gas. One of the steps says to remove control knobs insert precision screw driver into the valve stem and turn 90 degrees clock wise. The problem is I cant turn anything in either direction even if I try with pliers on the screw driver. Any idea what's going on ? Thanks steve

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.

Can this grill be also used on propane? If so you might be running it too hot on natural gas, check to see if the control knobs have two different set of markings.

Question, when you pull off the knob do you see a screw on the front of the valve? Since the grill was converted, there are times where manufacturers use gas specific valves and the screw is there as an adjustment. Let me know.

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 received aa Amana AM26 lp Grill for a gift. Want to convert to natural gas. What part do I need?


The grill has to have the duel fuel label on it, if it is not duel fuel then it can not be converted to natural gas. I have searched and I have not found a conversion kit for it.
