Kenmore Grilling - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Remove the burners and clean them inside and outside. Look down towards the knob which is where the jet it. Look for spider webs and egg sacs.

If the gas is cold, it has reduced pressure. Bring it inside for 24 hours, connect it and use it. Turn the gas off at the bottle and it should hold its pressure.

It is most likely the saftey check valve in the tank. The procedure is to:
  • Close tank valve.
  • Disconnect hose connection from grill to tank.
  • Wait
  • Reconnect hose connection from grill to tank
  • "Slowly" open valve on tank to release gas back into grill
Through on some steaks

If still a problem replace tank.
The check valve that can cause your problem drastically reduces propane flow in case of an accident and the lines are ruptured
Hope this helps?

Question, when you pull off the knob do you see a screw on the front of the valve? Since the grill was converted, there are times where manufacturers use gas specific valves and the screw is there as an adjustment. Let me know.

Check the piezoelectric ignition button wiring, check to make sure it isn't exposed or shorting somewhere. Take it out and see if you can get a spark across just the wires.

Not sure about your particular model, but some have a light-duty metal chain with an attached metal match stick holder to light the burners, in case the spark ignitor stops working. Or if it's a more heavy-duty chain, it could be to strap the 20# cylinder in place.

Check for a clogged line (such as a spider nest) at the valve.

Turn off propane. Disconnect propane tank from barbecue. Open burner valves for about 20 seconds. Close valves. Reattach propane tank. Slowly open propane tank valve. Turn on burner and ignite

it is best to have an external regulator. There may be some grills that don't require such a regulator but it is never wrong to use one. Not using one could, under some circumstance, lead to a varying flame when other gas appliances turn on and off.

I have had this happen & it is because your tube is clogged with a spiders web, I can about guarentee it; this happened to me 2 years in a row. Simply turn off the propane & disconnect the tank.....take off the grill grate & flame hood ....remove the tube & look inside it & see if its clogged....clean & put it back & everything should be fine.
