I'm hard on my grills but I have had a CharBroil commercial series grill for about 8 years. They made the mistake of offering a lifetime warranty on many of the parts (don't think they do this any longer), but I've replaced the burners 3 times, the burner brace twice and the grease tray and the warming rack once each. Only have to pay $8.95 for shipping.
I also scour the grill once at the beginning of the season and once in the middle when stuff gets goopy.
The holes in the burner (my main grill has three that run vertically) eventually rust/rot out and then just waste gas or create a super big flame in one area. Sometimes, they are just clogged from fat drippings and you can poke them open with a toothpick or skewer. But mostly, they need replacing.
Mine are very easy to replace, the burner brace is the tricky part with screws that are stuck in place (as mentioned by OutofFoil).
How old is the grill?
