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 or from Factory Appliance Parts

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

Model # 463240904 ignitor stopped firing even after replacing battery?

First, be sure you have the battery turned the right way. Generally the Positive Tip (+) should be facing up. Yours may be the opposite, so try it both ways. Also, when you remove the battery look inside the holder for signs of corrosion. If there is some, do your best to clean it out with a Q-Tip soaked in WD-40.

If none of the above seems to solve the problem, look for loose wires from the Ignitor button assembly to the Ignitor Elements (Tips) in the grill. Also, the Ignitor Elements at each burner in the grill may be covered with grease, which will prevent them from firing. If you see that, clean them with alcohol.

Those are the basic things that cause a battery operated ignitor to fail.

Hope this helps to solve your problem. Please let me know.

My Charbroil grill igniter won't work. Have to

I';m sure everyone thinks they are giving good advice, but READ THE SYMPTOMS. The guy says his ignitor doesn't "click" anymore. And most of you tell him he needs a new gas regulator. Fix his problem, don't create new ones. He needs his ignitor fixed. Maybe just a new battery? Or maybe the whole ignitor unit But certainly not a new regulator, etc, etc.

Ignitor not working is there a battery that needs

The electronic ignitor on our Charmglow SS Gas Grill (Model 810-6320-B from Home Depot) was not generating a spark. The battery beneath the ignitor button (cap) had to be replaced. At first, still no spark. Next I used a Dremel hobby drill with a small wire brush head to clean the negative contact within the battery chamber. Also brushed the spring surfaces (battery positive circuit), ensuring good contact when battery inserted & ignitor button re-installed.
Checked wire contacts & gap of electrode tip.
Ignitor is working again!

Gas grill ignitors

Check the electrode.  That is the end at the burner.  It may be corroded and no longer creating a spark.
