Kenmore 148.1665601 Gas Grill User Manual

Do not use citrisol, abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a
concentrated grill cleaner on plastic parts. Damage to and
failure of parts can result.
•Porcelain surfaces: Because of glass-like composition, most
residue can be wiped away with baking soda/water solution or
specially formulated cleaner. Use nonabrasive scouring
powder for stubborn stains.
•Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or nonabrasive
cleaner and warm soapy water. Wipe dry with a soft
nonabrasive cloth.
•Stainless steel surfaces: To maintain your grill’s high quality
appearance, wash with mild detergent and warm soapy water
and wipe dry with a soft cloth after each use. Baked-on
grease deposits may require the use of an abrasive plastic
cleaning pad. Use only in direction of brushed finish to avoid
damage. Do not use abrasive pad on areas with graphics.
• Cooking surfaces: If a bristle brush is used to clean any of
the grill cooking surfaces, ensure no loose bristles remain on
cooking surfaces prior to grilling. It is not recommended to
clean cooking surfaces while grill is hot.
Storing Your Grill
•Clean cooking grates.
•Store in dry location.
•When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors in a
wellventilated space and out of reach of children.
•Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of grill
covers offered by manufacturer.
•Store grill indoors ONLY if LP cylinder is turned off and
disconnected, removed from grill and stored outdoors.
•When removing grill from storage, follow “Cleaning the Burner
Assembly” instructions before starting grill.
Cleaning the Burner Assembly
Follow these instructions to clean and/or replace parts of
burner assembly or if you have trouble igniting grill.
1. Turn gas off at control knobs and LP cylinder.
2. Remove cooking grates and heat diffusers.
3. Remove R pins from rear of burners.
4. Carefully lift each burner up and away from valve openings.
We suggest three ways to clean the burner tubes. Use the one
easiest for you.
(A) Bend a stiff wire (a light weight coat hanger works well)
into a small hook. Run the hook through each burner
tube several times.
(B) Use a narrow bottle brush with a flexible handle (do not
use a brass wire brush), run the brush through each
burner tube several times.
(C) Wear eye protection: Use an air hose to force air into
the burner tube and out the burner ports. Check each
port to make sure air comes out each hole.
5. Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove food
residue and dirt.
6. Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an open
paper clip.
7. Check burner for damage, due to normal wear and corrosion
some holes may become enlarged. If any large cracks or
holes are found replace burner.
If you notice that your grill is getting hard to light or that the
flame isn’t as strong as it should be, take the time to check
and clean the burner tubes.
Spiders or small insects have been known to create “flashback”
problems. The spiders spin webs, build nests and lay eggs in the
grill’s burner tubes obstructing the flow of gas to the burner. The
backed-up gas can ignite in the burner tube behind the control
panel. This is known as a flashback and it can damage your grill
and even cause injury.
To prevent flashbacks and ensure good performance the burner
and burner tube assembly should be removed from the grill and
cleaned before use whenever the grill has been idle for an
extended period.
