Don't let your new gas grill end up in the trash. With the growing investment a gas grill represents, it's increasingly important to keep your grill running longer. Of course, you keep it covered and clean at all times. Put it someplace sheltered when you aren't using it and give it a good washing after every use. Right? Well, whether you do or not something is bound to go wrong eventually. That's why it's better and cheaper for you to know how to make basic repairs of your gas grill.

As gas grills become more and more complicated it can seem very daunting to attempt to repair one on your own. However, the basic design of gas grills really hasn't changed that much. Sure, there may be five burners where there used to be one. But most all gas grills are a metal box, either stainless steel or cast aluminum with burners, regulators, ignitors, and fittings that are pretty similar to those grills of years gone by.

Gas starts out either in your tank or if you have a natural gas grill attached to your home from the gas line. The gas passes through a regulator (to limit the gas pressure), through a manifold to divide it up between the burners, then through the control valves where you adjust the flow rate to control the temperature. From here it passes through the venturi tubes to mix with oxygen so it can burn and finally into the burners and out through the burner ports to make the visible flame. Above the burners, you have some type of barrier that protects the burners and helps to distribute the heat. In the past, this barrier was typically lava rocks or ceramic briquettes (that some grills still use).

The barrier catches drippings from foods so they can be burned off by the heat of the grill.

Before you start pulling your grill apart be sure to open the lid, make sure that the fuel tank is in the off position and the gas disconnected. Propane and natural gas can be very bad for you whether there is an explosion or not.
