After cutting some of the burners in half to try to access the screws, I realized that I could probably just use a pair of pliers to turn the actual burner out from their slots. It worked great! Basically what I did was spray a some WD-40 to loosen up the rust around the screws. After a few minutes I used a set of pliers to grab the flat part of the burner and turned it clockwise. The burner came right out. Before putting in the new burners I sprayed some more wd-40 on the screws and turned them loose to clean around them. I then re-tightened the screw just tight enough to wedge the new burners into the space. The new burner are in and working great.

I decided not to remove the screws at all because their purpose is to serve as an anchoring stem for the end of the burner. So I simply tore the rusted burners off which left some rusted metal remaining around the screws. I used tools (e.g., vice grips, tapping hammer, chisel, liquid rust remover solution) to remove the rusted metal from the screws (being careful not to ruin the screw stems). My burners installed just fine. Fortunately my original screws were still usable because new screws did not come with my burner order.

Trying to replace burners on a charmglow 720-0304 grill...cant get to screws...and if you do cant get to turn at all.


Had this problem myself, last week. Because of the rusted screws and screw heads, I ended up drilling them out. As they are just sheet metal screws. Just be careful doing it, so as not to make the hole in the mounting bracket much larger than what it is. Start with a small diameter bit and work your way up.

Hope this helps you.

How do I install replacement burners for my Charmglow 720-0036-hd-05 grill


Replacing Burners on Charmglow 720-0036-HD-05.
1. Disconnect the gas line to the "side burner".
2. Remove the two "side shelves", each of which is held on by 4 large phillips screws.
3. Remove the "control panel" that is held on by two smaller phillips screws at each side of the "control panel".
4. Remove the "front baffle" located directly behind the "control panel that is held on by 4 phillips screws.
5. Lift off the "cooking grills" and the "flame tamers" (the plates over the burners) so that you can see the burners.
6. Now you can slide each of the burners forward and then left them out of the grill.
Replace everything in the reverse order.

yes. These screws are literally rusted in place. Begin by squirting each one with WD-40 Penetrating Lubricant. Let that sit over night so the lube will indeed penetrate. The next day the screws may back out, if not and you can get a pair of needle-nosed locking pliers on them, back em out that way. As a last resort, drill them out. Joe

Having trouble changing 3 steel pipe burners on Charmglow grill


The best way to install these burners is to get a vice grip/pliers and bend the end of the burner where the screws can be placed. If you notice on that end there appears to be a section where it will bend without impacting the integrity of the burner itself. It will bend enough for you to place the burner in its place. Once installed, bend back and screw in the screws to hold in place.

I have a charbroil, advantage series grill. It isn't lighting.


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.

Replacement of burners charmglow 810-6320B


The only way I was able to get the screws out was to use a 5/16" cobalt drill bit to drill through the center of each screw. Then, and only then, was the GrabIT screw extraction tool able to grip and remove each screw. Of course, I had to break off what was left of the burned out burners first to get easy access to the screws. To replace the burners, remove 3 screws (in an L shaped pattern) from the left side of the burner control panel. I did NOT have to remove the utility shelf to get to these screws. The control panel can then be moved forward about an inch, thereby enabling the new burner tubes to fit into their gas spouts. TIPS: It was easier for me to attach the back of the new burners before trying to attach the fronts. I used new 6-32 machine screws to attach them. You'll need to look from the bottom of the burner control panel when attaching the front of the new burners -- to see better.
