HOUSING, F/ COOKING GRATE, IR is rated out of 5 by 165.
Rated 1 out of 5 by DeanB from Grate Housing Tray poorly engineered The grate housing tray on my Char-Broil Infrared BBQ rusted out in about 1 year. This despite the BBQ being stored under cover, and covered with a fitted outdoor cover. To me, it's obvious the metal screening was not up to the task, too thin, and poorly engineered. Up to this point, I felt Char-Broil was one of the better BBQ's, but I'm less convinced of that now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Waynebo from The grate housing tray is not durable. The overall design of the Lowes Infrared Commercial is bad. The rack that holds the flame retarders are a part of the fire box and cannot be replaced. You have to order the entire box for $80.00, dismantle the top half of the grill to replace it. The Grate Housing does not hold up, the metal rust over time. The grates are extremely difficult to maintain and clean even with the various grill cleaners recommended by Char Broil. Over all I would not purchase this grill again. It cooks great but the quality of the grate housing, grates and the flame retarders is poor.

I have model 463247310 and it says surefire ignition on the front. Ignitor won't work. Can light grill with match but very dangerous. what parts would I need to replace. I don't see my switch. Also, need to replace a grate housing, which is correct part?
Check the battery - there is a small knob on the right hand side of the grill. Sometimes just turning the knob slightly re-seats the battery. Or replace the battery. Also, look at the crimped connections inside the cabinet on the back side of the battery. These can get easily dislodged.
