  • Need help adjusting new hinge system

    Hey all,

    I have been using my new KJ II for the past 2 weeks and have noticed that with the warmer weather the new hinge system will not completely hold the lid up when the grill is open. I have to hold it up and gently release the handle for it to stay. I would like to make some adjustments but the instructions that come with the grill are not very helpful. Anyone have similar issues or does anyone know what direction to adjust the nut so that the tension will hold the lid up properly?

    I haven't even had mine a whole week yet. I saw the instructions that came with it but I didn't really look closely. I'll have to look when I get back home and see if it makes sense.

      My KJ II would not stay open at all after opening and closing it a vew times! I have adjusted the nut clockwise. So now it will stay open but only just. Unfortunately I only could adjust the nut 1.5 turns! After 1.5 turns it was already at the treads end.
