Weber Summit Grill Igniters

All three igniters on my 6-burner grill are not working. There is no spark when the igniter button is depressed. Could it be all three need replacing or am I facing a different problem? Currently I remove the grates and light with a gas lighter.

I contacted Weber and they sent me a complete igniter system. I will have to install it.

How do I light the rotisserie infrared burner?


Nice unit. I was looking at it last night in Home Depot.

Should spark ignite like the burners surely? Perhaps the igniter post needs adjusting, or a lead has become disconnected?

How do I change the battery in my weber summit grill igniter?


Depending on the igniter unit, the pushbutton wilt either be threaded or twist-locked into place. Grasp the button and twist counter clockwise. If twist-lock it will only turn a quarter turn and then pop off. The battery is beneath the button.

Infared burners ignitor won't work


Mike, have you replaced the battery in the igniter button ye? That's the first place to start troubleshooting. Be sure you install the new battery facing the same direction as the old battery. Also, check the interior contacts of the battery holder for corrosion. If you find any, use a Q-Tip sprayed with a little WD40 to clean it.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, trace the igniter wire from the igniter button to the spark igniter at the burner for damaged wire or a loose connection.

And finally, try match lighting the infrared burners to make sure that they are getting an adequate flow of gas.

Hope this helped you t troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

We have the Summit 675 NG built in grill that is several years old. The igniters and crossover tubes have totally eroded. Can we just manually light the grill with no additional problems or do these...


Yes, you probably could for a while. But, the rust and corrosion is going to spread to the other burners eventually.So, it would be better to replace, what's needed. The parts are available directly from Weber
http://store.weber.com/parts/gas/ Or from Appliance Factory Parts
http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/

The parts you need are not expensive and are fairly easy to install.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

The igniter does not work. i changed the battery. it used to click when pressed down and pop up. now it does not. i do see that the spring is still in the unit.


I had horrible luck with my Weber igniter. They just don't seem to last. I replaced mine two or three times in the 10 years I had my grill, then finally gave up and started using a lighter. So, try replacing it with a Weber part, or one of the universal igniters at your favorite home improvement store.

Igniter Stopped working


Igniter could be shot. Take out igniter and put near something metal. Push button to see if sparks occur. If not igniter is no good. If this works, the end of wire that is near wear the igniter sparks to light grill could be to far away from metal, bend to get closer to metal, so it will spark, or end could be covered with grease, clean end and try for spark again.

Grill not lighting


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the push button igniter next to the burner control knobs on the front of your grill.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the grill has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck

Ignite prob


You've got two different things going on.  First - the type of igniter used on your model does wear.  I have had mine for over 10 years and have gone through 3 such igniters - and I grill nearly 3 times per week over the 25 week "grilling" season where I live. Spring for the $12 part and just replace it. The other issue sounds like a clogged cross-over system.  I would remove the burners, including the cross-over bar on the far left side that connects them.  Clean the exterior with a stiff steel/brass brush and the inside with a bottle brush.  Make sure all the holes are clear to allow gas to flow easily - use a wooden tooth-pick to do this to make sure you don't change the size of the holes! Put that baby back together and I think you'll find you'll be good as new!
These grills are great.  Now, if Weber could only fix the uneven heat problem between the left and right side I'd REALLY be happy!  (I wish they would even just admit there IS a problem!)
Good luck and happy grilling.
