If the burner in your Ducane grill becomes too dirty, it will not cook food properly. You will notice uneven grilling due to hot spots and cold spots. It is recommended to clean your burner every one to two years. However, if the burner ports become clogged with grease and you are unable to clean them, it is time to replace the burner. Replacement burners can be ordered from Ducane online. You also may be able to find them at your local retail store.
