Question about Kenmore 700 sq. in. Cooking Area Gas Grill 14116325
We have a Kenmore gas grill. It lights fine, but doesn't get very hot. Any recommendations regarding fixing the problem.
I had this same problem especially when the tank on my 5 burner 2 year-old Kenmore was about half full. The solution above fixed it. I was used to opening the gas fully, turning one burner to high and clicking the button. If I would have read the front of the grill I would have seen that this was incorrect. I turned off the grill completely, unhooked the regulator and reconnected it. With one burner on high I began clicking the button BEFORE I turned on the gas. I slowly turned the gas on one quarter turn and it lit up full flame. I slowly turned the gas another quarter turn and lit the second burner. I slowly opened the gas all the way and lit the third and so on. That did the trick!

I have a Kenmore Duel Fuel, it is approx 1 year old barely used. I have alwys had problems lighing it,or when it is lit the flame is low and won't heat up.Sears came out to repair it, and Technician said to "shake the propane tank" It continued to be a problem and I stopped trying unil about 3 weeks ago, again I tried for 30 minutes, finally it was lit . Suddenly a large flame shot out from under the grill, and I call The fire dept, it burnt up pretty good, I called Sears repair again, they sent a repair person today, that wants to oder us a new fuel line? this was a 1,000.00 grill. two of the knobs are melted of and it is entirely scorched!

There's a good chance your LP tank isn't putting out enough propane because it thinks there's an overflow. In short, if you don't light the grill fast enough, Propane flows back to the tank and a safety feature limits further output. Shut the valve and disconnect the tank, press your ignition switch a few times, then reattach and follow the manufacturers directions for lighting the grill. This will probably fix it.
If not, check for leaks in the hose with soapy water and make sure you still have a full tank!
