As goes with most things, after several years of use, your BBQ burners will endure damage over time and will need replacing. So, how will you know if they’re on their last legs? Take off the hotplates and grill and give them a good wipe. If the flame isn’t blue and even across the burner bar, you’re not getting the most out of your BBQ and in fact, it could be dangerous to continue using it with those burners. Fortunately, replacing the burners is easy and won’t require specialised tools either. Here’s an easy step-by-step guide on how to simply and effectively replace and change your burners.
Remove the old burners and get their replacements
A burner usually has a split pin at the end, at the back of the BBQ furthest away from the knob. Make sure all the control knobs are off and disconnected from the gas supply line. Pull the split pin out with a small pair of pliers and the burner will lift out. Take it down to your local BBQ retailer for replacements. And we have a range of replacement BBQ burners to choose from so that you can keep your barbecue grilling perfectly every time.
Install the new burner
This is the easy part! Drop the burners back in, replace the split pin and you’re good to go!
Test the burner
Once the burners are firmly in place, fire them up to see if they work. The flame needs to be blue and even across the burner bar.
If the gas burner lights up easily and you can easily control the flames with smooth knob turns, then your grill is ready for use!
