OCI E26 Model Burner Installation For Gas BBQ Grills.

These twenty-six inch barbecue grill models by Outdoor Concepts, Inc. were sold in great quantities and primarily to home builders. OCI has been unable to fabricate the replacement parts for the barbecue grills so we have been forced to make other, similar parts work in order to repair the OCI BBQ models. When we repair OCI twenty six inch BBQ models, the U burner installation is demonstrated in the video below. These burners fit the OCI 26 inch gas barbeque grill perfectly and are shipped with the bracket and supports seen in the images below. This L bracket bolts through the back wall so it rests lying on the original bracket in the grill and this supports the burner in the OCI E26 models so the burner and gas flow is always level.

Stainless Burners Replaced.

This image shows an OCI E26 model we had here in our shop. We were able to trim the flash tubes and attach the back support bracket you see in back of each of these replaced burners.

Since we attach the bracket by using the original OCI burner bracket the burners are level and straight and they burn perfectly.

The front L bracket installed across the inner firewall has to be loosened to press the center feed tube all the way forward onto the valve orifice.

The bottom liner of the OCI E26 barbecue grill has sloped steel so the replacement burners are not able to rest on the floor of the grill. The back bracket is essential for installing the burners straight and level.

The U burner replacement is very similar to the original. The biggest difference is that the width of this U burner is just shy of 8 Inches at the widest part.

As we can see in this picture the replacement burner we have been using is almost exactly the same depth as the original U burners from OCI for the E26 models. However, these burners do not have the small tabs sticking out at the far end where the original burner would clip into the back support brackets.

This is why we send the mounting brackets with the burners. These brackets stick out much further and then they clip to the center feed tube of the replacement burner.

When we have to install a different burner we may need to cut the tubes mounted right and left of the U burner. We also lift up the front L bracket to install the burner and then tighten the bracket back down so the burners are held securely in place.

Although not a great picture it is important to make sure the orifice attached to the end of the OCI control valve slides all the way into the center venturi tube of the U burner when installing a burner in the OCI gas BBQ grill model.
