Top critical review
The instructions could have been MUCH better.
on August 18, 2015
The device seems to work. Having said that, I know from other areas of life (electrical household wiring) that "just because it works does not mean it's right."
The burner seems to be well-made.
You can set up the burner in one of six configurations. Three configurations for the length of the burner and two configurations for pin at the end of the burner that goes into grill.
I have two big complaints about the instructions. First, why is there no video example? Second, why is there no reference in the documentation or online for which of the six configurations goes with each model number for each Char-Broil grill? How long would it have taken to put such a list together and saved their customers a lot of worry about "Did I do this thing that handles gas correctly?"
In their instructions, part #4 is the silvery "gas tube". It slides in and out of the dark gray burner.I could only guess at the right length to adjust the length to by comparing with the defective assembly. Again, it would have been nice if the documentation gave the length for each model gas grill.
If you can live with the uncertainty, this product seems to be well made and the price is the best I could fid for a replacement burner.
