Grill worked fine for almost a year but I recently used charcoal following the directions in the manual (and it worked great). However since using it (& it is long gone), if I turn grill on high,...

Kathleen, the ash and debris left from the charcoal clogged the burners and caused the flames to shoot back thru the venturi valves, which is causing the flames to reach the control knobs. For the most part. I would suspect that the control panel, the electronic ignition, control knobs, the gas manifold for the burners and the burners are now completely shot.

Now, you're at the stage of determining is it worth it, to replace all the parts (if you can find them) and repair the grill. Since you didn't mention who the manufacturer of the grill is and how long you've had it. I have no way to tell how much it's worth. But, if it were me, and the grill is at least 5 years old and it originally cost $600.00 or less, I'd seriously consider replacing the gas grill with a new one. And if you want to do some charcoal grilling, get a separate inexpensive charcoal grill and take good care of it. During the weekday evenings when you don;t have time for charcoal grill to preheat, use the gas grill. On weekends, use the charcoal grill if you like.

Hope this helped answer your question and ultimately help you make the right decision.

The knob that controls gas flow to the burners was frozen shut. Ordinarily, one has to depress the knob and turn. It was not possible to do either of these. Pushed down hard and turned, and broke valve...

According to the Owners Manual, it appears to be welded. In addition, you can't replace just the one valve, it sold as a complete manifold assembly.

Sorry, I wish I had better news. If you'd like to download and print your Owners Manual go to this link.

Hello, I had to clean my grill and in doing so I removed the burners. After putting it back together, the burners will now ignite when trying to use the igniter switch. I can ignite them by use of a...

The ignitor(s) have apparently lost their ground. You may have disturbed a wire(s) when you removed the burners to clean them. Trace the wiring to each of the peizo ignitors (what the spark comes off of) and make sure they are tight (pushed up on the prong of the piezo) Also, where you saw the spark, remove the wire and reattach it. It is probably lose. The ignitor button/assembly is grounded to the grill frame. Make sure it's attached tightly.

Once you correct the parking wire, I think you will have solved the problem.

Happy Grilling!!

What is the knob on the right side of the grill?

Hello. IF you have a side burner on the right side it is most likely controlled by that knob. Joe

Sear knob will not stay on (very loose fit). Other knobs seem tighter fit. The grill is brand new -- thus disappointed by post assembly quality control.

Pull the knob of of the sear burner valve shaft and check to see if it is melted on the inside, if it is, it will fit loose and needs to be replaced.

My grill does not heat beyond 300 degrees.


Check the excess flow safety device, which is part if the barbeque to cylinder connection, may have activated. To reset the excess flow safety device turn all burner control knobs and the cylinder valve off.
Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to high. Wait at least 1 minute . Turn burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. turn cylinder valve slowly.

I need the assembly instructions for a Four Seasons Gas Grill

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.

Burner replacement on Ducane 30400040

Remove the 2 grill wire cooking racks by lifting them out of the top of the grill, next lift out to remove the 3 heat deflector panels which exposes the 3 burner tubes. Remove the 4 screws located on the outside flanks (2 on each side) of the 5-knob control panel assembly - then gently slide the knob control assembly outward and away from the grill just about an inch or two. You can now remove the old burner tubes and replace them with the new units. Then simply slide the control assembly back into the grill frame and replace/tighten the 4 screws. Voila`
