Air Lift Hinge Help

Recommended Posts

Need help with Air Lift Hinge adjustment. I'm sure this has been covered a million times, but my search is not taking me to the thread I need. Please send a link to the right thread if possible. The hinge was working great until last night. The problem is the lid will not stay up without holding it open. Last cook was a low 16 hour pork butt cook, so nothing should of changed. When I fired the KJ up last night the hinge would not allow the lid to stay open without holding it. I'm sure it's easy to adjust, but was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Also, has anybody else ever noticed a drastic change in hinge operation from one cook to the next? KJ is less than a month old and has never been over 550 degrees.

Changes in location of the grill can make this become a problem when it wasn't before.. if the grill is not level and tilted slightly forward the dome may not want to stay open as easily as it was when level or slightly tilted back.

Thanks @John Setzler! I do have a manual. When all else fails, read the instructions right. :-D. The lid lifts super easy, just won't stay open. I'll check the level tonight. I didn't think of that, although it shouldn't have moved.

Thanks guys. My grill table may be a tad out of level....I have times where it won;t want to stay up...but it's close to staying and then finally does. I bet that's the culprit.
