Thanks vanole. So that confirms I had the right model number as the schematic in your link matches my built-in. I also talked to Nexgrill/TGS today and they were quite helpful. If I were confident that I could figure out how to replace a few burners and other miscellaneous parts I may go that route rather than a new grill. Any videos out there?
Thanks bten. My manual says: "MODEL #s: 740-0165 (LP) / 750-0165 (NG)", and my grill run on Natural Gas, so that's where I came up with the number. It looks like the 720-0165 is not a built-in model, but I could be wrong. The burners appear to be cast iron and the manual describes them as "Main Cast Burners" so I am pretty sure they are. I'm also gonna give Nexgrill a call - I believe they are TGS now?
Hi Folks, Been a member of this forum since 2006, when I purchased the subject grill from Lowe's to drop into my new BBQ island. The grill has given me lots of enjoyment over the years, but it's at the point now where it's failing in some areas. See the pix I have attached. For example my sear burner and the accompanying gas knob no longer function, one of the main burners has a hole in it causing flame to shoot out, and the smoker baffle cover is decaying. Another piece of information is that we will be selling our home about this time next year. Part of me would like to replace the grill inexpensively, so that I can get further enjoyment out of a new grill prior to our home sale. I have looked briefly at this grill, which has much of the capability of my current grill (sear and rotisserie burners, and 4 main burners). http://www.homedepot.com/p/KitchenAid-4-Burner-Built-in-Propane-Gas-Island-Grill-Head-in-Stainless-Steel-with-Searing-Main-Burner-and-Rotisserie-Burner-740-0781/204268053 However I am not 100% sure the KitchenAid will fit in my existing island. Cutout dimensions are about 1" deeper and 2" wider. I posted this question on Home Depot's website and a NexGrill CSR replied "It sounds like your island will accommodate this grill!" but I am not so sure. Is there another option of replacing some of the parts that no longer function? If so how would I go about doing that? Any other options? Thanks for your time, Dan
Congrats Doug. Let me know how the KitchenAid works out for you. I'm considering a similar model sold at Home Depot, although I need a built-in to replace my Jenn-Air (more on that in a future post). http://www.homedepot.com/p/KitchenAid-4-Burner-Built-in-Propane-Gas-Island-Grill-Head-in-Stainless-Steel-with-Searing-Main-Burner-and-Rotisserie-Burner-740-0781/204268053 Thanks, Dan
