Ignitor doesn't work on DCS grill

Replaced ignitors by company 2 years ago. First set lasted 7 years. again not working (either burner - two ignitors). I have the parts diagram for the grill but there is no clear ignitor piece. Just the knob and the spark generator. Which part is likely to be defective? DCS 27 BQR grill. Thanks

SOURCE: gas grill ignitors

I recently moved. When the grill arrived to the new home I had to purchase a new propane tank to replace the old one. The grill will not light. For some reason it isn't getting any gas. Any suggestions on what the problem might be? 
I tried the obvious... tightening the connections, trying to light it manually etc.
Thanks,
K

SOURCE: Jenn Air lp grill won't light with the ignitor button

I just finished cleaning our starter on our jenn air. Over time, corrosion, rust and battery acid builds up on both the coils on the lid (positive side) as well as in the battery chamber and negative tip inside the chamber. I used sand paper and sanded the coils in the cap and the chamber. The coils need direct connection to the battery to create the charge. There are no instructions on this that I was able to find. I figured it out after about 3 hours of fussing with it. It worked immediately once I placed the battery back in. You may also need to clean the electrode tips near the burner. I used a q-tip. Hope this helps.

Ignition


The problem most likely the ignitor itself. If you have the paperwork that came with the grill, It should have an origional replacement parts page. If not, you may be able to get a universal at your local hardware or home supply store.

Tip

Ignitor doesn't click, spark or light gas


When my 2-year-old grill quit supplying a spark to light either the grill or the side burner, I removed the battery/start button and noticed droplets of water inside.
So I removed the ignitor unit. When I shook it, I could hear water sloshing inside, probably because I'm too lazy to put the cover on the grill after using it.
The part was going to be about $40 with shipping.
I shook out all the water I could, but still no spark.
Remembering a tip I'd heard about wet cell phones, I sealed the ignitor unit in a bag of dry white rice and left it on the grill in the Florida sun for a couple of days. Lots of condensation showed up on the plastic bag.
Shocking discovery: after two days in the plastic bag, I shook out residual rice, replaced the battery and button, pushed it, and the sparks tingled my fingers pretty well! Lots of volts!
Also works fine in the grill again. Probably works on all brands of grill ignitors...

Hello,

The ignitor is bad again,if it (ignitor) comes on but no flame/heat its the ignotor again, what would make the ignotor go bad so fast (usually last 10-15 years) is a problem with the oven burner, so now BOTH the ignitor and burner would need to be replaced,if it is 15 years old the ignitor is readily avaliable but the burner may not be

Ignitor keeps clicking on burner


A creda microwave oven doesn't have an ignitor or burner, so I assume you are talking about either a BBQ grill or gas range.

A suggestion: Clean the ignitor tip with a CLEAN and DRY green scouring pad; check that you have gas coming out of the burner.

If you have gas at the burner and the ignitor is clicking (sparking) then it is usually an ignitor alignment problem where the ignitor got bumped out of position.

I have been using the grill for about a year now. All of a sudden the electronic igniter dosen't spark on all control knobs. I checked the battery and replaced it with a new one. It did not change...


First, Bud make sure the battery was installed facing the proper direction. The Positive end (+) should be facing out when installed. If that's not the problem, check the wiring from the ignition module to the each burner ignitor. One may be loose or the grounding wire from the ignitor module to the grill's frame, may have lost contact. Also, look carefully at each ignitor tip at the burners. They may have an accumulation of grease, which needs to cleaned off.

If all that doesn't resolve the problem, you will need to replace the ignitor module. You can purchase one online directly from NEX Grill http://www.nexgrill.net/ or from Factory Appliance Parts

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

Where do you hook up the sideburner ignitor wire to on the char-coil bbq model 463721111


The side burner ignitor wire connects to the spare lug on the main ignitior module. That one module, controls all the spark ignitors at each main burner and the side burner. When you press the button all ignitors spark at one time. I know it sounds stupid, but that's the way Charbroil's R & D designed it. I guess it saves money.

Hope this helped you to make the final hookup. Happy Grilling!!

My main ignitor works and the side burner ignitor doesnt...it not 1 year old yet


Check the ignitor wiring going to the side burner to make sure that both leads are stil connected (ie making contact). If it appears that they are, remove the end of the wire on the side burner igniter and push it back on again. It may have just lost the ground to it.

All 6 ranges and the large oven work well.the small oven won't li


My gas oven stopped working properly - called in the repair man and he replaced two of the three ceramic ignitors. (I have a two oven model). Apparently they only last / work well for 3-5 years. Kinda sounded crazy to me - but verified on the internet they are required to be replaced. Not sure I'd call the repair man next time - get the part yourself, one screw & two wires to replace. I'm no expert - but that solved my problem.

Burner will not light


possibly the ignitor has a weak spark its making the jump to the burner but not strong enough to lite the gas did you check the lines for spider webs or other insects?
