Ducane "take it or leave it" electric parts

I bought 4 "take it or leave it" electric grills for a part time work 3 years ago and all 4 of them are out of commission for 2.5 years now, the electrical cable that one end plugs to the electrical outlet and the other end- that has a pin and the temp. control knob- plugs to the grill's heating element had burned out on me on all 4 grills at least 1 time. Better late than never, I still need to use these particular grills if I can make them work, and now that I discover this forum "FIXYA" I would like to see if anybody can help me to find the heating elements and the power cord with its control knob for all 4 grills.
PS. I heard that Ducane discontinue this electric model and some of its subcontractors sell the appropriate gas parts to at least convert them to gas powered units but for me it does'nt work as i need to work them indoors where gas use is prohibited.
Please help
Thanks in advance.

None of my igniters on my 30400043 Ducane grill will light the burners. I've had a grease fire due to the burners rusting out and replaced the burners. The insulation on the wires to the igniters has...


As I tell customers, when they ask me, "How long will this grill last?" "That depends on well you take care of it with routine maintenance and cleaning."

The wiring for the electronic ignition and the spark ignitors are replaceable. The ignitor button or the "clicker" as you called is replaceable. But all you may to do, is change the battery inside the igniter button. To help you further, i have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your grill. It will have an exploded view of the parts, which should help you identify them by part number and order them from Ducane, if you like.

A far as the infrared burners are concerned, they blow out easily if the wind is just blowing slightly. That's why they have a thermocouple on the burner, to turn the gas off to it, when it gets blown out. When preheating an infrared burner, the hood/lid of the grill should be closed.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Ducane Affinity 4400 grill. The ignitor has worked fine for the first couple of years and just recently stopped working. I replaced the battery and this corrected the problem for a few weeks, but...


Several things come to mind, that may be contributing to the problem.

1. Corroded contacts in the battery holder. Remove the battery and inspect for corrosion. Use a
Q-Tip & WD40 to clean the contacts.
2. A loose or corroded connection of the ground wire from the ignition module to the grill's frame.
Trace and inspect the ground wire.
3. Loose or damaged wires to each burner's spark igniter. Remove the grill grates and the flame
tamers to inspect each spark igniter.

If none of the above solves the problem, replacing the ignition module is the next step. You can purchase one from Ducane http://www.ducane.com/contact/
or from http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/gasgrillparts/

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

I have the Ducane Model # 30557501. I have a low flame and the temp will not go above 250 degrees. I've tried resetting the regulator numerous times to no avail. Can I buy a universal regulator or is...


A universal Hose/Regulator Assembly will work just as well as one from Ducane. Actually, they're one in the same. Buying just the regulator is not practical, as you can not disconnect the hose from the regulator without damaging it. You can pickup a Hose/Regulator Assembly from any home center or hardware store that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

Ducane high efficiency propane furnace, pressure switch problem


A short cycle heat cycle indicat a pressure switch replacement was needed. This did not fix the problem. the problem was in PCV line since the end was filled with slugs and cause the line to backup with water. When this happen the system would stop asking for gas. the water would leak out and it would restart. The problem was fixed by cleaning value at end of PCV. This released the water, two quart of water, that was back up causing problem. Curious if a filter change indicator was providing a clue that was missed?

Burner replacement on Ducane 30400040


Remove the 2 grill wire cooking racks by lifting them out of the top of the grill, next lift out to remove the 3 heat deflector panels which exposes the 3 burner tubes. Remove the 4 screws located on the outside flanks (2 on each side) of the 5-knob control panel assembly - then gently slide the knob control assembly outward and away from the grill just about an inch or two. You can now remove the old burner tubes and replace them with the new units. Then simply slide the control assembly back into the grill frame and replace/tighten the 4 screws. Voila`

Rotisserie won't stay lit


With our Kenmore, you need to increase the gas flow another 1/4 turn once it's lit.
