Question about Kenmore Grilling

Open Question

Alignment of gas collector box with appropriate burner port pair.

Subject: Kenmore LP Gas Grill Model 141.155400
I have just rebuilt my Kenmore Gas Grill Model 141.15500. During the rebuild operation I replaced each gas collector box.

The facing side of each gas collector box is mounted on a threaded sleeve which has a pair of adjustment nuts which can allow fore and aft adjustment of the assembly. Opposite this threaded sleeve is a slot which runs the entire width of the gas collector box. The assembly can be adjusted fore and aft relative to the burner ports. I selected the slotted side of the gas collector box to be the adjustment reference plane.

Each burner has 32 ports on each of it's two sides. These ports are paired transversely from side to side of each burner. For reference, I started my count with the number one pair of ports being at the orifice end of the burner tube.

My Question is: (1) Which pair of burner ports do I adjust to and align the slotted side of the gas collector box with?

I appreciate your help with this matter.

Thanks,

Charles W. Clark

You may be running lean. Add air until you have as much blue flame as you can get. Often, however, this is impossible on worn burners.

Try blowing the burner out with compressed air. They're not adjustable but can get clogged up and change the air to gas mix.

Can i get parts to convert my capn cook 4 burner bbq grill to lp


The BBQ's Galore grills are the only ones that are approved to be field converted. All you need a 4 LP Gas Burner Orifices and a Hose Regulator Assembly to hook to a LP Gas grill tank. You can buy the orifices from BBQ's Galore and the Hose/Regulator Assembly from any hardware store or home improvement center that sells grills & accessories for about $30.00. Gas grill burner orifices are pretty universal, so any LP Gas ones should work.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a kenmore gas grill model # 141.16322 with an LP tank. Is there a converter kit to hook it up to a gas line so I do not have to use the LP tank?


Just call Sears with the model # and ask. I'm certain that all their models can be converted. If you do hook it up to your house line, I recommend 2 things. First, install a shutoff valve in the line to turn off the gas to the grill when not in use. Second, install a hose of appropriate length with a 2 piece quick-disconnect (after the shut off valve), so you can use the grill on your patio or deck and then disconnect it and store it where you want, and the grill is not in the way and you're not tripping over the hose.

Jenn Air 740-0141 LP to NG Conversion


If the grill can be converted, it's usually a matter of providing a source for the natural gas and then changing the gas jets for the burner(s) and possibly a regulator, depending on your model. Some grills may require changing the gas burner valves themselves. Kits are usually available from a dealer unless the unit is old.

The natural gas jet will be slightly larger than the propane jet because natural gas doesn't have as high a heating value as propane.

If you do this, check your new conversion for any leaks using a soap solution in a spray bottle.

Just be aware that the grill may not get as hot with natural gas and cooking could take a little longer, but should still work just fine.

Your natural gas line should typically be about 1/2" unless it's huge or is over 50-60 feet away from the grill location. If so, use a 3/4" line. Piping material and methods are usually governed by your local building codes.

Problem with Gas flow on multi burner gas grill


Is it safe to assume that the 4th and 5th burner has a poor flame also? It sounds like a fuel starvation issue. Have you tried replacing the regulator? The regulator is the some what square shaped thing that is on the black LP hose or on the manifold (the part that has the gas valves on it), if it is natural gas. Also try cleaning out the burners and the gas valve orifaces. These will sometimes get clogged with spider webs or food particles. Another thing that can cause a problem is if you have one of those LP gas guages on the tank. I found that it was blocking the gas flow. I tried re installing it but it still caused a problem.

Kenmore Master Flame Grill


Hello,
Burner will not light:
Here is a couple things you can check:

1. Gas injector not insert in venturi tube.
2. Clogged gas injector
3. Obstruction in gas line.
4.Spider webs in venturi tubes.
5. Misalignment Of collector box and burner.
6.Dead Battery.
7.Check hose to make sure it is not kinked
8.Check Hose to make sure it wasn't chewed by squirrles
9. If it is LP gas, Could be out of gas.

Other Issues:
Could be the way the grill was turned on and off, that also can be an issues. In your manual it will tell you how to do it proper, this could make it not light or have a low flame. If there is not hing in your manual, I will be happy to assist you.
