It's used to manually light the grill with a match. The match should slide into the end of the tube. If you look, the tube should flatten out at the opposite end of where the chain is connected.

I have a Kenmore 6 Burner Stainless Steel grill with a smoker, but the gas isn't getting to the smoker. It works fine on the burners and side burner, but won't get to the smoker. The tubes are installed...


Take the burners out and check the Orvis that's where the gas comes out you could take a paper clip in pocket to see if there's something blocking it

I bought a Tool Box Grill and put the whole thing together. The language on the instruction manual was extremely poor and I can't tell if I am missing a part. The adapter for the gas screws in nicely...


If the tube you're referring to is the burner tube, that is connected to the gas valve/regulator? The hole you're seeing is the the Venturi Valve. It mixes air to gas, which allows it to burn cleanly and have a blue flame, rather than a yellow flame.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

What is the NATURAL gas flow rating CFM for a Weber Genesis S-330 grill at 60,000 BTU max? I will be using 1/2" black pipe 40ft long run to the grill off a 3/4" main line - ok? Thanks...Dennis


Dennis, it's not the CFM you need to know, it's the water column inch that is required. In this case it's 7 inches. Also, if you're burying this 40' run, you can't use black iron pipe. A less labor intensive and perhaps less expensive way to go is 1/2" Flexible Copper Refrigerant Tubing. It's comes in 50' & 100 ' roles from your local home center. Even if you're not burying the line, it's a better way to go, as you'll have fewer fittings that could be prone to leaking. I

n addition, you'll also need and an inline gas shut off valve at the connection before the grill and a 12' long quick disconnect gas hose, that connects to the copper pipe connection at the shut off valve and then to the grill. This is a code requirement.

Now, with all this said, I hope you have a Genesis S-330 Natural Gas Grill. Because, the Genesis Propane Grills ARE NOT convertible to Natural Gas. And Genesis Natural Grills ARE NOT convertible to Propane.

Hope all this helped you make the right decisions. Have a great day and Happy Grilling!

Side searing burner won't ignite


check the gas tube that comes off the burner for spiders. They will build a nest in there over winter and not allow the gas to get through

What is the chain on the side of my grill for? Kenmore Grill with 100% Infrared Cooking System Sold by Sears | Sears Item# 07116650000 | Model# 464222209


I have either the same grill, or one very similar (Kenmore infrared grill) and just assembled it yesterday and had the same question! I don't believe it's a safety chain. It hangs from the left front corner of the main grill body, and it has some sort of curled wire thingy on the end of the chain. The chain is definitely not thick enough to secure the grill. I looked through the assembly instructions a few times and could not find reference to what it's for. Any other ideas?

Model 141.163211 Kenmore BBQ Grill. Burner tube ignites then after a few seconds flames ignite behind control panel - melted knobs. A year ago same problem. Removed all parts and cleaned, installed new...


It sounds like sealant may need to be used on connections. Use appropriate one for gas fittings.

Noting where the leak is occuring is important. Another possibility is the fuel is being somehow "jetted" from a hole or orifice in a burner tube to the area behind the control panel. These are hard to see what happens first when it does happen.

Kenmore Elite 17680 gas grill needs a new burner. I purchased the burner, but do not know how to install it. Can this be done as "do it yourself" or does it require a serviceman?


I had a local barbeque grill retailer ( a fireplace and barbeque store which did repairs) install a new one for me. I didn't want to mess with the venturi tubes and the exact length of the openings so it would work. I am glad I did as it works perfectly.

Kenmore Master Flame Grill


Hello,
Burner will not light:
Here is a couple things you can check:

1. Gas injector not insert in venturi tube.
2. Clogged gas injector
3. Obstruction in gas line.
4.Spider webs in venturi tubes.
5. Misalignment Of collector box and burner.
6.Dead Battery.
7.Check hose to make sure it is not kinked
8.Check Hose to make sure it wasn't chewed by squirrles
9. If it is LP gas, Could be out of gas.

Other Issues:
Could be the way the grill was turned on and off, that also can be an issues. In your manual it will tell you how to do it proper, this could make it not light or have a low flame. If there is not hing in your manual, I will be happy to assist you.
