How to clean the burners and drip tray of your KitchenAid outdoor grill
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the grill is cool. Always follow label instructions on cleaning products.
Cleaning the Burners
- Clean the exterior of the burner with a wire brush.
- Clear any clogged burner ports with a straightened paper clip.
- Do not use a toothpick as it may break off and clog the port.
Cleaning burner/venturi tubes
- Remove grill grates and flame tamers.
- Remove the screw (if present) and cotter pin/clip that hold the burner in the place. Remove gas burner from the grill.
- Use a flashlight to inspect into the burner through the burner inlet to ensure there is no blockage. If any obstruction is seen, use a metal coat hanger that has been straightened to clear them.
- After inspecting the inside of burner for blockage, reassemble burner by sliding the middle tube of the gas burner over the gas orifice.

Cleaning the Rotissiere Burner
