Kenmore LPG Grill Model 141.16313800 I last used this grill 2 weeks ago and there are no problems. Yesterday I tried to use it but I can't light the grill. So I replaced the propane tank (the old one feels like it's not empty). After trouble shooting as per manual, the grill still fails to operate. The burners are not plugged. New battery installed for the ignitor and they spark when checked. Already purged air from the gas line. When I check if there are any obstruction in the gas line, I did not smell the LPG before I reconnect it to the grill. Please help. Many thanks!


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 stainless steel Kenmore propane grill, model 119.16311800. It has four burners and a side burner on the left. It is two years old and has performed perfectly for two years. I am now having trouble with the flame. It will light and if I only have one burner on it will give a good flame. Lighting additional burners will reduce the flame size, when all four main burners are on they struggle to stay lit. We recently moved, and the grill was out of gas for an extended period. The problem first presented after a relative gave me a gas tank. Initial inspection showed some debris in the valve of the tank itself. I tried removing the debris from the tank with partial success. I connected it to the grill and had the same issue. Got a new tank. Fired up and cooked up some great burgers. thought I was all set until the next time when the new tank also produced the same results. I have not been able to disassemble the burners to check/clean the venturi tubes. (ever) It appears that there is a screw at the rear of the burners that will release it, but they are badly corroded and will not come out by standard means. If you could confirm this is indeed the proper way to remove the bruners I will drill them out and devise a better way to fasten them afterwards. Also, I did read here about opening the gas tank valve very slowly. I disconnected the regulator, waited a few minutes, reconnected and opened very slowly. Light the furtherst burner first and proceeded to find the problem still existed. I understand that the regulator may also be faulty. Given that there is no gauranteed life cycle for any product, can you estimate a typical life span for a regulator? How would I go about checking the regulator? I fear that when I tried to remove the gunk in that old tank some loose particals may have gotten into the regulator and damaged it. Thank you very much for any assistance you can give!


With all the you described, your best bet is to replace the grill hose/regulator assembly. It's not expensive and it's not difficult to do. You can find the hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills. The assembly is universal, but take your old one with you for comparison purposes.As far as replacing the burners are concerned, that's not difficult either. And you may be able to find the replacement burners at www.sureheat.com , as they made the Kenmore grills for Sears. And yes, the scenario you gave for removing the burners is correct.Hope this helped you and you will be kind enough to give my response to you, a positive rating.Happy Grilling!

We've had our roadtrip lxe for 3 yrs. We live in Tucson Az. and it works fine here. When we go to the mts. in northern Az. it has failed us every time (9 times). It will light and run for about 15 minutes just long enough to start cooking and then it goes out. Try to relight it and it will come on very low for about a minute and go out again. We check for leaks, obstructions etc. and find nothing. Retighten everything and try again to no avail. We have spent hours diagnosing but nothing works. We get back to Tucson and (you guessed it) it works fine, no problems. Bought a new grill (different brand) but we love the roadtrip. It still looks brandnew and we have invested a lot in every accessory. PLEASE HELP Gary & Millie ps.. Tanks are new, purged and full.


Gary & Millie, the mountains you're visiting, must be over 2000 feet above sea level and that's what's affecting your gas grill.The lower oxygen level and lower air pressure affects propane fueled grills. On larger gas appliances, the gas pressure can be adjusted to overcome this problem. But, I don't believe you can do that on a portable gas grill. My best suggestion is to contact Coleman Customer Support at 800-835-3278, to find out if they have another regulator that can be used in high altitude applications.Good luck and Happy Grilling!!

I have a Dukane Stainless Gas Grill (Five Burners, a Rotisserie and Stove top). It worked fine for three years. Now, I am not able to light more than one burner (of the five). When I go to put the second burner on, the first one goes out. I changed the propane tank to a new full one and still have the same problem. Is there something I have to clean out?


It's possible you may need a new regulator, but usually this problem is due to opening the propane tank valve too fast, which can cause the built-in excess flow valve to check closed to only a trickle. Next time you use the grill, very slowly open the tank valve and see if that solves it. If not, replace the regulator. Douglas

What is the bottom of the kenmore gas grilled called?????


Hello Dee, Sorry you didn't get exactly what you thought you were getting but you should be able to find the model of the oven section ( top part of grill) and locate a tag of some sort that youcan bring with you to Sears ( they market Kenmore) Service deskand they should be able to track down all the parts you need to complete it ( You'll be looking for the base cabinet that matches the oven ).. They should also be able to provide you with assembly directions too.. Good Luck...

I cant' get a flow of gas through the regulator. Full tank of gas, plenty of spark. I can usually hear the gas flow when opening one of the three valves up top to light. So there is definitely no flow. I tried the "turn on the tank and wait for one minute" theory to no avail. The problem has steadily gotten worse over the course of one-and-a-half years I've had the grill. Usually I can unhook the line from the tank and hook it back up that starts the flow again. Now, even that doesn't work. Please help... Rick


Sorry, brother, your regulator is dead. You need to replace it. Lowe's/HomeDepot/Similar sell replacements, Not hard to swap out, Low cost. --W/D--

This si the second time I have had a problem when I changed tanks. It started working the first time but not this time. The tank valve is open and the pressure guage is in the green, until you tirn on the burner to light it, then the pressure guage goes to red (empty) and the burner lights for about 1/2 second then goes out from lack of gas. It worked fine until I changed to full tanks. As soon as I turn off the burner the pressure guage goes back to full ! Help please


Many newer grills have a safety feature built in where the valve will not allow gas to flow if the burner valve is in ON position when the valve on the tank is opened. Try this - Shut of all valves, disconnect and then re-connect hose to tank, turn on valve above LP tank, THEN turn on burner valve, light w/ spark or match... This feature can be really frustrating if you don't know it is in operation...
