Question about Kenmore 700 sq. in. Cooking Area Gas Grill 14116325

Grill Blew up

Last night I woke to the smell of gas, and went down to check the grill. Two of the dials had blown off and melted. The gas leak was clearly from the gill. I opened the cabinet and shut down the gas and realized the regulator hose was melted so badly that it was no longer connected to the grill and the cabinet door was singed. We typically always turn the tank off, but to forget this particular evening. This is of great concern, as the outcome could have been worse regarding safety, as well as the gill is totaled and it's only a year old. Has anyone else had these issues?

Yes...........I just had my grill go up in flames as you discribed. The gas hose fitting is a crimpedconnection that connects the hose to a small male fitting. This is not properly enginered ... there should have been a brass conection there. JT

You may have to recheck the tank for full. If you forgot to turn off the tank after the last time you used the grill, the tank could have leaked down. I always keep a spare full tank for just those types of problems. If the tank is full, then the regulator may have a problem. That grill should be able to get over 300 degrees.

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.

I have a full propane tank. I bbq'd about 3 weeks ago, same full bottle. Grill will not light. Good spark at ignitor. Used lighter and lit for a few seconds with low flame on high. No other burners will...

You may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Turn it back off, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn the valve back on. Light one burner at a time and turn to low before lighting the next. If you are hearing and smelling gas with the tank on but all grill knobs off, don't use the grill. You may have a leaking grill valve, regulator or hose. If you are only smelling gas with the knobs on, it's possible you have a clogged burner or orifice from bug nests, spiderwebs, etc and need to clean it out first. Hope this helps. Douglas

Fridge smell

check the pipes at the back of the fridge, it could be that one of the pipes has a crack and is leaking gas or oil. If not check the inside of the fride for a brown oily residue. This indicates a leak. Don't turn the fridge back on becasue if the oil and gas mix then the fridge will no longer be usable. If you find either of these get an engineer to fix the problem.
