Nexgrill Barbecues, Grill Parts and BBQ Brands.

Nexgrill private label barbecues and grill parts

NexGrill sells barbeque grills as a manufacturer in a few retail stores but selling barbecues to the public is not the primary source of income for the company.  NexGrill exists to import inexpensive barbeque grills from the orient for sale with whatever private labels the purchaser provides.  Many of the BBQ grills we have purchased in the large retail stores selling products specific to their brand are actually low-cost imports provided by NexGrill.  If I had a dollar for every time a customer looked at me with utter confusion as they came to understand that JennAir – with their decades old reputation for long-lasting, high quality appliances – did not manufacture their barbeque from Lowes I’d be rich.

In September 2005, Nexgrill Industries recalled gas grills sold exclusively at Home Depot. The recall covered about 86,000 Charmglow Gas Grills manufactured for Home Depot. The problem was that the hose connecting the manifold and the propane tank is too close to the firebox. In many cases, the hot firebox ended up damaging the hose and causing it to leak gas, creating a serious fire risk. There have been at least five reports of fires involving leaking gas hoses and over 45 additional reports of gas leak incidents.

Nexgrill and Charmglow and Brinkmann

The grill involved is model number 720-0036-HD-05, a number that can be found on the back of the grill. This is a grill designed to be used with propane. The name Charmglow is located on the left-hand corner of the outside of the main burner lid. These grills were sold at Home Depot from November 2004 through June 2005 and cost about $350. Anyone who has one of these grills was asked to stop using it and contact Nexgrill Customer Service to get a free repair kit that can be done by the grill owner. The kits could also be ordered.

Charmglow grills were introduced in the 1960s and were known for their high quality construction. The different Charmglow models had names such as Perfect Host, Master Chef, and Party Host. In the 1980s, the food processing company Beatrice Foods Company manufactured Charmglow grills. The brand was later acquired by Home Depot and the grills are made by Nexgrill (models with series numbers starting with 720) and the Brinkmann Corporation (models with series numbers starting with 810).

Dangerous grill parts?

In January 2007, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that Nexgrill, headquartered outside Los Angeles, agreed to pay a civil penalty of $300,000 to settle the allegations that Nexgrill failed to report a fire hazard with its gas grills. The penalty was accepted by the Commission, but Nexgrill made the payment although denying that it violated national reporting requirements.

Also in 2004, the Turbo Sport Portable LP Gas Grill made by Nexgrill in Taiwan was found to have faulty gas regulators. These can release too much gas to the gas burner, resulting in an excessively large burner flame. This problem also poses a risk of fires or explosions if a source of ignition is present. Though no injuries were reported, there were 18 cases of excessive flame, or the regulator shutting off. The Turbo Sport Portable LP Gas Grill recalled was model number IR600, but there is no model number on the grill itself. They were sold from August 2004 to August 2005 at Barbeques Galore stores nationwide. The grill measures 16.5 x 14 x 12 inches (L x W x H) and is made of stainless steel with a stainless steel hood. It has a Turbo Sport nameplate on the front panel of the grill. They were sold from August 2004 to August 2005 for $170 to $200.

Jenn Air Gas BBQ Grill Replacement Parts.

Nexgrill started making grills for Jenn-Air in 2004, specifically the Jenn-Air Model 720-0100 Natural Gas Outdoor Gas Grill. The Jenn Air BBQ grill parts also had defects. The hose connecting the grill's main manifold and the natural gas source was in many cases not supplied with the grills. With no hose connecting the manifold to the gas source, gas could be emitted into the surrounding air creating a fire hazard. This Jenn-Air grill was an outdoor gas barbeque that had four main burners, a side burner, and a rotisserie. The name Jenn-Air was on a plate on the lid of the grill. The affected model was sold from April to May 2004 at Lowes stores across the U.S. and retailed for about $800. Consumers were directed to contact Nexgrill to obtain a free hose during regular business hours or contact NexGrill via e-mail.

The Jenn-Air brand is found at Lowes home improvement stores, and they fall in the mid-range of prices for gas grills. Popular features include stainless steel surfaces, brass burners, and convenient storage drawers. Though Jenn-Air has had a solid reputation for indoor appliances and associations with products like Dynasty outdoor grills and Maytag appliances the name is also used to market their grills.  The parent company of JennAir brandings is Jade which also owns Kenmore. However, the high qualith manufacturer does not make Jenn Air or Kenmore grills.  The lower-priced gas grills are imported by NexGrill and labeled for sale through retailers like Lowes.  Jade’s outdoor barbeque grill models are called Dynasty and are well-built grills with a solid warranty and a great reputation.

These Jenn-Air grills have generally received less positive reviews. It is important for consumers to know who will stand behind a Jenn-Air grill before buying one. There have been many complaints about Jenn-Air -- Nexgrill customer service, particularly in late 2004, though some improvement was reported in customer service during 2005.

Nexgrill barbecues and replacement grill parts.

The general problem with many of these name-brand grills was that when Nexgrill started making them, particularly during 2004 and 2005, the quality of the grills dropped. There were also problems with customer service in the case of Jenn-Air and Charmglow. Although the paperwork with the barbecues claims a warranty, customers trying to report problems or use the warranty to obtain Nexgrill barbeque grill replacement parts were unable to get any assistance from the telephone contacts in the users manuals.

Specific brands imported by Nexgrill include Charmglow, Turbo, and Jenn-Air. Many consumers believe that when the manufacturer of these brands became Nexgrill, they were still able to ride on the popularity of their original brands until there started being quality control and customer service complaints. It is very important for consumers choosing a gas grill to learn exactly who has the license to manufacture the brand, and what the warranty conditions are.  Unfortunately when a retailer brings in a model of barbeque specific to their store, NexGrill is the biggest private-label importer.  A year later when different models are purchased and private labeled if the cooking grates are a different size, if the burners are different or the ignition updated then the older models no longer have the ability to obtain replacement parts.  The paperwork promises service but the parts are rarely available because the company is counting on us to throw it away and keep buying a new one each year hoping the quality is better.  It is not.

Barbecuing Will Take Over Your Life.

      model 720-0171 Jenn air grill has a hose connect to mnifold blew up the lower cabinet. Not a cheap gril $1500.00 After 3 yrs of use. Kept under cover. VERY DANGEROUS. Nexgrill blew me of like it was my fault. Part is not visible unless on your back looking under grill. Stay away from any nexgrill product. I have a commercial grill that is more than 10 yres old. No problems works like new

      Grilling is the bomb, right? I'm quite excited that it's getting to be summer again so that I can fire it up. Steak, anyone?

      Probably not a good idea to buy a low quality gas grill, it's so easy to get unpredictable accidents with leaking gas.

      Wonder how many people get a new gas hose before the old one breaks?
