I have a Legacy Model #BH421-SS-3 that I've had for about 17 years. I've been trying to replace the burner, hose, new regulator, etc. But once I began I found out, to my dismay, that the flame deflector has to be removed in order to get to the burner. That sounds simply enough except that I've had to basically dismantle the grill before I could even attempt doing this. Unfortunately, the nuts and bolts seem to be "frozen" in place and despite scuffed knuckles and a gash in my hand, I can't budge them. I've used everything from WD-40 to a spray that is supposed to loosen anything and still no luck. Would I be better off junking the body of the grill and try to buy a new one? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. By the way, I REALLY like my Holland Grill.

I also have a Legacy. Try to clean the burner out first before replacing it. I just cleaned mine out by vacuuming the gas connection end. A surprising amount of little metal pieces came flying out. The flame was yellow and producing a lot of soot and now it is a clean almost all blue flame. Here is the article on how to do it. It was fairly easy.

Don't fret
You can get a good anti seize like WD 40 but better, or try to apply a little heat to the bolts. if they break off replace them.
I have done this on many Holland grills I have purchased for friends. Everyone that eats meat off my grill wants one, so I buy them off CL for next to nothing and rebuild them.
Take your time spray the bolts from the inside and let sit for the night, apply a little heat in the morning and they should back out nice and easy.
good to take apart at least once a year for a good cleaning. I have two going on 12 years and still as good as new.
