Question about Kenmore Grilling

1 Answer

Kenmore Sure-Spark We have a Kenmore Sure-Spark with Integrated Sideburner with a rotisserie motor but no rotisserie that was given to us. It is a "Precision Flame Cooking System". 1. Do you have any idea where the model number is or how we can get a manual for this unit? 2. How do we catch the grease so that it doesn't drip underneath on the concrete? 3. How do we mount the propane tank? Do we just place it on the lower wire rack? 4. There are no lava rocks in place. Does it need to have lava rocks to retain heat?

Try Appliance Factory Parts (www.applliancefactoryparts.com) at (800) 955-7075. Call or look on their website for specs, drawings, parts, etc. The grease clip underneath takes a Campbell soup can to catch the drippings. And yes, you need to buy lava rocks which act like hot charcoal when heated by the gas. Yes, the tank fits underneath on the stand and is clipped into the wire rack.

Can not get rotisserie burner to light


There may be several reasons the rotisserie burner will not light. First, the orifice to the burner itself may be clogged or partially clogged preventing gas flow. There may be a problem with the spark generator, the wire running from the spark generator to the electrode, or the electrode itself. The first thing to check is the gas flow. When you turn on the valve for the rotisserie burner you should hear and smell the gas if it is flowing. Light the rotisserie burner with a manual lighter, if it lights manually, then the gas if flowing.
The seconc thing to look for is a spark from the electrode when you turn or push, depending on the type of spark generator you have. If there is no spark, the it is most likely an ignition system problem. If you have a battery operated spark generator, replace the battery and try again. If the spark generator is a piezo, you have to repalce the spark generator. If you install a new battery, or replace the piezo spark generator, and there is still no spark, then you have to get to the wire and the electrode. Look for bare spots in the wire insulation that would cause a short. Check the electrode for a cracked or broken insualtor. In either case, the wire and/or the electrode will need to be replaced.

I just bought the Brinkman, and I am trying to figure out how to use the Rosterria. Can you help me?


Since a Rotisserie is an optional item for your model grill. I assume you have purchased one that is approved to be used on your model Brinkmann Grill Smoker. If not, I recommend that you Do Not use it. If it was approved, read and follow the directions that came with it regarding installation, setup and preparing to use the rotisserie.

The Rotisserie can only be used when you are not grilling anything else on the grill. Remove the grill grates directly in front of the rear infrared Rotisserie Burner. If you Don't, they will be in the way. In their place, you are going to use an aluminum pan (like a pie pan), as a drip pan for whatever you're cooking on the Rotisserie.Place that on top of the burner's flame tamers. Make sure the rotisserie motor is in place and you have electric power to it. Test the rotisserie spit, by inserting it into the motor's spit holder. If you have a Counter Balance, attach that near handle on the spit shaft just below the handle. If your rotisserie is missing the counter balance, you can not use the rotisserie.

Remove the rotisserie spit and place whatever you're planning to cook on it, following the directions that came with rotisserie kit. Make sure the spit forks are tightly embedded in the meat, whole chicken, etc. If a whole chicken, tie the legs together like a Thanksgiving Turkey around the spit..

Light the Rotisserie Burner and close the hood of the grill. Allow the temperature to reach a minimum of 250 degrees F, before opening the hood and installing the food loaded rotisserie spit.
Be careful, as the interior of the grill will be hot. Install the spit as you did earlier. Make sure it fits into both sides of the grill's hood correctly.

Turn the Rotisserie Motor ON and watch as the food turns. If it turns and then sort of bumps, when the spit turns around, adjust the counter balance to stop this. It should turn smoothly. Once all tha is completed, close the hood and allow the food to cook for whatever time, you would cook it in a kitchen oven. Rotisserie cooking is like smoking food. It's a low (temp) and slow (time) process. But, the flavor rewards are GREAT. Only check the food occasionally. The more you open the hood to peek, the longer it will take to cook. Each time you peek, add 10 minutes to the cooking time.

All of this, was sort of a thumbnail sketch of rotissering food. Search the web for recipes and techniques. You'll be amazed at what's out there.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

We just purchased a Kenmore gas BBQ and the electronic ignition is not working. The battery is installed as shown but the orange wire was not attached. We plugged it in but it still will not work. Is...


There has to be a complete electricl circuit from the igniter through the wire and to the electrode for a spark to jump the gap between the end of the electrode and the burner or hood and ignite the gas. I sure you already have, but make sure the battery is in correclty. and that all wires are attached. Take out the cooking grates and the flame tamers so you can see the end of the electrode and make sure it is not touching anything or there will not be a gap for the spark to jump.

Where can i get parts forit.I have lost my Rotisserie grilling skrewere that holds the chicken in the middle and helps to turn it round


You can find a universal Rotisserie Rod (spit) at just about any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take your rotisserie motor with you, to make sure you get one that will snugly fit the coupling on the motor.

Good luck & Happy Grilling!!

Flame does not stay on Rotisserie Burner grill but jumps back into the throat where the air mixes with the propane gas. What's wrong and how do I fix it?


If it's windy outside when this happens, the wind is blowing the infrared burner out. Especially if the hood of the grill is open. The Rotisserie should only be used with the hood closed.

CalFlame 4-burner convection BBQ rear rotisserie burner does not work. Converted to natural gas. There is a spark but gas will not ignite. Held match to burner and it would light but would go out when...


Check the air shutter adjustment on the rotisserie burner. It may be starving for air. Also make sure the burner is properly positioned over the orifice. When it was converted, it may not have been put back into place correctly. Also, it's possible the orifice may have been re-drilled out at the wrong size for natural gas. If you know the rotisserie burner BTU rating, I can look up the correct orifice hole size to check if it's right. Douglas

Rotisserie burner won't light


It could be a dirty or inop spark electrode. Also could be weak batteries in the spark igniter.

Before you start you should make sure that the ignition system has fresh batteries. The batteries are usually located within the igniter button but not always. Some BBQs will have a battery pack located somewhere on the BBQ and others you can remove the igniter button by turning it left to reveal the battery.

First verify that the rotisserie burner can be lit manually. Take a BBQ lighter or long stick match and then put the flame right at the base of the burner where the electrode is and then slowly turn on the burner valve. It should light within four seconds. If it does not then shut the burner off and check for any restrictions in the gas line for the burner.

If it does light with a match then the spark electrode could be dirty, out of position or simply the wire for the ignition system is loose. Press the igniter button and watch the electrode for a good bright spark at the burner. If you do not see any spark you can verify that the igniter wire has not come loose and also gently adjust the position of the electrode end a little bit closer to the burner using a pair of needle nose pliers(It should not be touching the burner). It does not need to touch the burner but have a really small gap.You can use a small wire brush to gently clean the electrode of any debris that might be causing a weak or no spark

If you are unable to remedy the non-spark issue all is not lost. You can still use the manual lighting procedure I described to light the burner. And remember to be careful when trying these procedures. I do not want you to get injured from delayed gas ignition. Be careful and have a safe holiday.

I was given a ducane 20002301 2 burner with rotisserie and when I ignite and have on high there is not much flame. I know very little about gas grills


Could be two things, the first is a bad regulator, easy to replace and not very expensive. The other is a blockage in the burner orifices. For this you have to take the burners out and check inside the burner venturis and then see if you can unscrew the orifices on the valves and clean out any blockage.

Good answer... but remember (if you have the regular burners on... The Rotisserie will not light.) 1. Cut all knobs off... Then push and hold in Rotisserie button as you turn to high.
2. Press ignition button, until you hear rotisserie ignite. 3. Keep holding in the rotisserie button until the thermostat realizes the gas is on and burning. (IT must get hot enough to keep gas flowing.) Hope that helps, Dave

Sideburner for Thermos Stainless Steel Gas Grill (Mod # 461262006)


It sounds like the orifice is bad. An orifice is a small metal part that has a small hole in it. This regulates the gas coming out to the burner. It is at the tip of the pipe that brings gas to the burners, before the flame. I don't know what the hell the garggley noise is. Unless the bottle is upside down, and you are getting liquid, I don't know.
