I have a Kenmore grill and when I went to pull the gas tank off to get it refill a tiny plastic circular piece fell out of the connection. When I reconnected it it did not supply gas to the burners. I suspect this plastic ring is the issue. Any ideas?
Yes, it may be the plastic ring, if you didn't reinstall it. However, it could be something else. The gas regulator may be locked up. To solve this problem, do the following :
1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.
If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's
Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or
hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it,
turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa. Read More At : 882 sq. in. Cooking Area Gas Grill 14117329...
