How rusted are the burners? It is possible there is rusted metal blocking the gas ports. I don't have enough information from you regarding the problem...do you hear the gas flowing when you turn the burner open and the gas bottle is open?

Go to your user's manual, there should be an illustrated parts list. From there you can order new burners...you can also do this at Char-Broil's website.

Burner replacement is easy: take the grills out, then remove the flame tamers (the tent looking thing that sits over the burner to prevent flame-ups), the burners are screwed in to the grill at the back, remove the screws then grab the burner, pull towards the back of the grill and then up...this will disengage it from the gas valve in the front of the grill. Putting in a new one is the exact revers of this procedure...just make sure when you put the new ones in you make sure the burner's gas intake is connected to the valve at the front of the grill. Once done, you should be good to go.

I have a kenmore quantum series propane grill which i cleaned and now i cant get it to light and i smell the propane what should i check?


Donna, are you saying the ignitors are not working or that the burners just won't light? Not even by match lighting them? All this makes a difference in providing a solution for you.
Please advise. Thanks

How to you start it


Grill should have a push button igniter located on control knob panel. The ignitor requires a battery, usually AA. Remove the cap and put in battery. Make sure propane tank has propane and turn on. Make sure all connections are tight. You can also manually light it by going through the view hole located at bottom front or side. Make sure your match or lighter is in and lit before turning on gas.

We just used the grill the other night went out to cook tonight will not ignite ....I can hear the gas so that is not it ...any suggestions? I am newby at all this but have been doing fine .....


Are you saying the ignitor won't light the burner(s), but you can hear gas going thru the burners?
If that's the case, try match lighting the burners. That's a good way to find out if you are really getting enough gas for combustion.

If after match lighting it, you find that burner flames remain low, even when they're turned to High. Here's what you need to do:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion,
slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open, try lighting the burner farthest away from the tank first and turn
it to High. Did the burner light and the flame height looks normal? If so, light the remaining
burner(s) the same way. Do all the flame heights look normal? If so, you solved the problem.

Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Pleas let me know and Happy Grilling, Newby!!

Gas grill wont lite manuallly


Do you mean it won't match light or the ignitor won't spark and light the burners? Or both?

If it won't match light or the ignitor sparks, but the burners don't light, that means you're not getting gas to the burners.

Check to the tank valve and make sure it's turned ON. Also, make sure that there's gas in the tank.
If both of those check out as OK, turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and the flame height looks correct? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. Now, are they all lit and the flames heights look correct? If so, you solve the problem. Just remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if the burners failed to light. Remove and clean all the burners, as well as the venturi valve on the open of each burner. Spiders like to build nest in the venturi valves.

if cleaning the burners did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find it in any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories, for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please be kind enough to let me know. Thanks and Happy grilling!!

The burners will not light. It appears that they are no getting any propane from the tank. Unfortunately, I have missed the manuel and this is a brand new grill. First time trying to use it and have...


The problem is more than likely the OPD Valve in the gas tank. To solve this problem, turn the Tank Valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY,VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once it's fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to it's highest setting. Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. Now, to all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly. If it didn't solve the problem, make sure you have adequate gas in "old propane tank from the other grill."

Just bought new propane tank for my Charbroil grill. First two times it work perfectly. Very short cook times with only 2 out 4 burners on. Now the grill lights but only enough of a flow for a low heat....


Either you got short changes on gas or the regulator is not working properly. Check the tank to see if it is empty, if not then the regulator will need to be changed.

Only one of four burners will light.


Hello, there is a carry over tube between the burners that looks like a burner hold down at the back of the grill. This is likely rusted closed and will need to be cleaned or replaced. The clips that hold the tube down are part # 7000132 and the tube part # is 7000280. They can be purchased directly from Char-Broil or Sears parts.

We bought our grill last summer and it worked fine. When we got it out of the garage this summer and replaced the gas, it wouldn't start. We can smell the gas so we know it is reaching the burners.


this sounds like an ignitor problem to me. You could replace the ignitor or you could light with a match. Most of these grills have an access point usually on the right side to light the burners with a match just make sure you light the match first and hold it into the access point before you turn the gas on.
