Two tank exclusion bars on the underside of a Char-Broil Grill separate the propane gas tank from the lower grilling chamber and provide stability. These bars are secured to the grill frame with a Phillips screw on each end. Removing the bars lets you access the underside of the appliance to perform maintenance on the grill or to disassemble the unit. Removing tank exclusion bars takes less than 10 minutes.
Shut off the gas valve on top of the propane tank below the grill by turning the knob clockwise. Always shut off the gas before performing any maintenance.
Locate the two tank exclusion bars, which are parallel to each other at the bottom centre of the lower half of the grill.
Remove the screw on the end of each tank exclusion bar where it fastens to the grill frame. Save the screws for reinstalling later.
Pull on each tank exclusion bar to separate it from the grill frame and remove from the unit.
