Most grills spend their lifetime exposed to the elements. The wear and tear caused by all that weather can rust and damage the handle. Because of this, it is may be necessary to replace the handle at some point during the life of your grill.
We used a Char-Broil grill for this repair, but it will be the same for most grill brands. Check out our Char-Broil parts page to find all of the parts you need for summer.
1. Loosen and remove the handle screws
Use a phillips-head screwdriver to loosen and remove the screws on the inside of your grill cover.
2. Remove the old handle
With the screws removed you can pull the old handle away from your grill.
3. Set the new handle onto your grill lid
Place the stainless steel bezels over the screw holes on the grill cover and set the handle into the bezels.
If your grill is porcelain, make sure you use fiber washers to separate the handle and the grill lid to prevent the porcelain finish from cracking.
4. Secure the new handle
Use the screw, lock-washer, and flat-washer to fasten the new handle onto your grill cover.
And that's how easy it is to replace the handle on your gas grill. Now get out those tongs and start grilling.
