Kenmore elite16690 gas grill - main burner replacement

Have had our Kenmore Elite gas grill, model 16690, for 5 plus years now and some of the parts are starting to show their age. I do not have the assembly instructions for the grill, and I need to replace the main burners and air shutters, the main burner bracket as well as the gas collector boxes. How do I do all of this? Or any idea where I can get a set of assembly instructions to help with the repairs?

Call 1-800-4MYHOME and request a brochure for that model. Then you can call the Parts line at the same number and order the parts you need.

The actual grill model number is 141-16690

I have a Kenmore Elite Model 16690. What is the best website for replacement parts for this grill?

First, since it's a Sears house brand, I'd start online with Sears Parts Central. Depending on which parts you're looking for, you can also try Appliance Factory Parts

Keep in mind, Kenmore doesn't manufacture anything. It's just a house brand name for Sears appliances. Actually NexGrill manufactures the Kenmore Grill line. So contacting them 800.913.8999 is also a possible source for parts.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Grilling!!

Relace your propane regulator, they do go bad form sitting around, had the same problem you have. you should be able to disconnect from the grill, turn on the regulator and smell the propane, if not it's bad.

Grill does noty get hot

try opening the tank very slowly. if you open it too quickly the overfill protection devise in the tank will restrict the gas flow to the burners. hope this helps.

One side of the grill cooks on lower temp then the other side.. tried new burners but that did not help, what can i do

close your burners up sounds like they are open to much also you make not have enough gas going to the grill, if this is your grill in the picture then you need a half inch line for it

Cover needed for Elite Grill 17690 w/islands

I just got off the phone with Grand Hall USA and spoke with Tameka. When Sears asks them to make things like this, they send them a couple samples. At the time of this email, Grand Hall has 6 of these left in stock with (I would assume) no replacements on the horizon.

The number is 214-550-8031 and they run $74 plus shipping. I hope this helps you all out. It took me a week of searching, but we got it done........thanks.
