POP OFF A KNOB AND LOOK TO SEE IF THERE IS A TINY SCREW IN THE CENTER OF THE KNOB SHAFT . THAT WOULD BE YOUR ADJUSTMENT FOR GAS FLOW. IF IT'S NOT THERE, THE PROBLEM IS IN YOUR REGULATOR, AND IT'S ADJUSTABLE AS WELL.

Good answer... but remember (if you have the regular burners on... The Rotisserie will not light.) 1. Cut all knobs off... Then push and hold in Rotisserie button as you turn to high.
2. Press ignition button, until you hear rotisserie ignite. 3. Keep holding in the rotisserie button until the thermostat realizes the gas is on and burning. (IT must get hot enough to keep gas flowing.) Hope that helps, Dave

Do you have enough gas pressure coming out of the regulator and gas valve? You'll need a pressure guage for this.

If yes, try taking out the burners and cleaning them with a wire brush, especially the flame spreading sections.

The tube is worn out and probably has a large hole in it. Replacement is easy.

I don't think you "seated" the burners correctly where they go into the knobs. Get up under the knobs, look up and you'll see what I mean.

Where is the ignite button located


Hi phillzy21
If the main grilling burners don't ignite, try lighting them several times using the snap ignition. If that doesn't work, try using a match. In humid and windy conditions, sometimes the snap ignitions do not work properly. Make sure that the hood is fully open. Also, ensure that your gas is turned on and that the valve is fully open. Next, take out both the heat distribution plates and cooking grate. Turn the grill backwards, and hit the snap igniter a few times and look for a spark. If you see a spark, the igniter is working properly.

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.

MY DUCANE FURNACE FIRE TOO HARD ON IGNITION


Gas pressure may be too high. you need to check the pressure at the regulator. 3.5in. wc for natural gas and 11.7in. wc for LP gas. sometimes when the system does not purge the gas vapors with the draft induce blower, when the ignition starts it will fire hard because of the excess gas vapor found in the burner chamber. hope this helps you out.

Does conversion from LP gs to Natural gas on Ducane 30400040 (essentially makes it a model 30400041) require changing the inlet orofice on the IR burner ? I purchased conversion kit that included all new...


Did the conversion kit give you an LP orifice for every new gas valve? LP gas orifices have smaller holes than Nat gas orifices. Can you smell gas when you turn on the IR burner by itself? Some burners styles have an air adjustment on the end that fits over the orifice. Make sure it's getting enough air. Also make sure your ignitor sparker is positioned where the spark can ark against the top of the burner. Ducane grills have rotary ignitors, so turn it (with gas off) and see if you can actually see where it's sparking. If it's not sparking in the right place, it will be difficult to light.

Ducane Grill Burner


You will need to unscrew the sides of the unit which houses the dials and ignition (This is connected to the burners). Pull it out, and they should come off rather easy if they are old. Slide them towards the front and out of the rear slots. When putting the new ones in, it is as simple as reversing what you did to take them out. You will need to go forward, into the holes, then toward the rear slots and lock them in place. You will then line up everything and screw the unit back into place. Much easier if you can get someone to help you for 10 minutes, but easily done by 1.

Ignitor problem?


if you remove the 2 screws on the right and left bottom plate and open the door and youll see 2 screws that panel will come off turn the oven on and you should see 2 burners on both sides and they should ignite.if they do and go right out you could have 2 problems.when the burners light they hit a probe called a flame sense.this probe plugs into a heat board and if the board doesnt sense the flame you will get a red no ignition light.clean the probes that sit right on the burners with sandpaper and see what happens,if that doesnt work if the unit has pilots clean the pilot orfice and if that doesnt work the heat board may be bad.how old is the unit?
