Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Char Broil Gas grill, and ignition has become a bit of a problem lately. I can see the electric igniter sparking, I have been able to smell LPG and keep the lid open. If it does ignite, it usually does so in a fireball fashion while removing arm hair. Is this a cleaning issue, or should I just cave and buy new parts / grill.

THis sounds like a cleanning issue, could be the grills orrifice close to the spark igniter is plugged. Wire brush please!

How do i chane the ignition button on the gas grill


Contact manufacturer for new igniter, new igniter should come with instructions for replacement. It should be fairly simple, disconnect two wires and retaining nut and then replace with new igniter, connect wires and screw on retaining nut.

Char-Broil 463722313 chain


think its a match holder, if the spark doesnt work, you can place a match on it, light it and lower it down to ignite the gas...
hope this helps

The ignition swithc is not attached to anything and so grille will not light


Reattach the wire(s) from the spark igniters on the burners to ignition module.You will have one extra wire and that is the ground wire, that should be attached to the grill's frame.
Get me the correct model number and I can forward you the Owner's Manual for your grill.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I had to change the burner but now the igniter will not automatically ignite when pressing the button. What should I do?


The piezo ignitor head my need to be adjusted so that it is closer to the burner. If it is not sparking at all, check for a loose wire at the piezo ignitor and trace it back to the ignition button. Often times, it will simply lost it's ground. To resolve this, carefully pull the ignitor wire off the piezo pin and the push it back on. Do the same thing on the back of ignitor button.

If none of the above solves the problem, it's time to replace the ignition systems. The parts are inexpensive and can be purchased on-line directly from Char-Broil http://www.charbroil.com/Store/ReplacementParts.aspx or from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. These will be universal fit model ignitors .

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Can not light flame


Gas is on. Look to see if the magneto is working properly. Do you see a spark when you press the ignition button? Perhaps the magneto gap is too much or the gas is not in contact with the spark.
