@hobbit: look on the grill and see if you can find some sort of model name, number, something. Sears Parts stores might be able to help you find a replacement, of course they are pricier than need be. Home Depot & Lowe's carry replacement parts for many grills and several universal parts. I'd try them first.

Worst case, take a photo of the failed part, or the part itself, into one of the DIY stores for a replacement. Home Depot & Lowe's both seem to be going out of their way over the last few months to be more helpful to customers. Good luck. We have to do the same thing this season if we want to avoid buying an entire new grill --- and I have my eye on this gorgeous grill...

(Walmart also carries universal parts.) Looking at the exploded parts picture you've included, finding a replacement should be a piece of cake.

@lavikinga: I did. It even says on the front that the model and serial number are on the back of the grill and I have looked everywhere for it. Part of the deal is I want to find the least expensive place to buy the part. It is bad enough I am going to be the one to have to figure out how to put it back together again.

[edit] I went digging for the manual model number 415.162040 and the burner assembly is 4505078

I used a Char-Broil part number to find this.

They offer a discount for items over $25. The site says they offer Paypal. I regularly use this for protection. They only get my money, not my credit card information.

Walmart of all places has an extensive collection of universal replacement burners. More than even Home Depot or Lowes. I got replacement burners for my grill for $14 each - they were $38 each from the manufacturer! What really gets me is the original burners lasted me one year before they started rusting out. The walmart burners have been in there three years now and they're still solid.

@choppercharles: good to know, and surprising too considering the store.

I worked at Home Depot for 4 years in Garden (Where the grills are). And I know for a fact that that burner is one of 2 standard, after market burners that they carry.

@stephen1424: pictures or links (because currently it hasn't been proven) - I practically live at home depot they nearly own my home along with the bank, I haven't seen my burner there.
