Kenmore Elite Grill (16686) infrared side burner not working properly

I love my Kenmore Grill! However, recently the infrared side burner stopped working properly. All other burners work just fine.


I can light infrared side burner as usual, but once I release the control knob (You must hold it in to start any burner on the grill) the flame immediately goes out. Regardless of what setting I hold the knob, there's no gas. If I constantly hold the knob in, it works through all temperature settings. I’ve seared steaks and chicken the last week standing there and holding the knob in….this wears me out :-)


What can I do to fix this or must I buy an entirely new Gas valve at $243? (Part Number: Y0060180).


I’m not afraid to take things apart, but I thought I’d start with this forum before dismantling my entire grill.


Thanx in advance!!
