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.

One burner wont light of the 3


Is the igniter not sparking or is gas not getting to that burner? Have you tried to match light that burner? Those three things is where you start troubleshooting the problem

If the igniter is not sparking, it could be that the igniter is covered with cooking grease or the wire to the igniter has come loose either at the igniter or the igniter module. And simply needs to be reattached (pushed back on).

If the burner won't match light, than it's not getting gas and should be removed and thoroughly cleaned. And while you're at it, remove and clean all the burners and the venturis valves.

Removing the buner burners on a Ducane grill is a bit of a task, so I have included a link to your Owners Manual to assist you. Pay particular attention to the section Annual Maintenance, starting on page # 28.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Left burner won't light with ignition, it will light with match


If each burner has its own igniter, you may need a new igniter. If both burners light off of one igniter, check the electrode to make sure there is a spark when you hit the igniter button.

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.

Cannot light new burners


I just replaced my burners and I also cleaned the starters. Get a wire brush about the size of a tooth brush to clean the starter, the thing that makes the spark to start the flame.

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.
