SOURCE: 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.

It could be that your fuel pump is not getting enough fuel to the engine to start it. Is your starter turning over or trying to start the engine.

SOURCE: My mtd(11A-54MC552) lawnmower won't start. changed:

The Flywheel has a brake and switch assembly on that is item 8 of this link: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/mtd-11a54mc006-2009-push-walkbehind-mower-parts-c-20039_20100_133234_21459.html#part_343018

The switch is made or unmade by the position of the user safety bar on the handle. When the cable between the handle and the flywheel safety brake wears or needs adjustment the safety switch continually grounds the ignition so there is no spark. You may have to adjust the user safety bar cable at the engine flywheel brake switch area by losending the mount screw and moving the cable jacket further away from the switch. Then re-tighten the mounting screw.

If this is the first start of the season you may have to remove the carb float bowl as shown on the bottom of item 14 the above link to clean out the jet orifice in the threaded area of the carb. Make sure you remove all debris in the carb float bowl area. You should also have fuel flow anytime the float is positioned below horizontal.

If none of the above corrects the problem respond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Colibri lighters model names are usually "names" not numbers. So, I am not sure if this is what you are looking for:

2006 Honda Shadow won't start. Gas tank filled. Sat 8 mo. Gas leaked out but not into engine.No sign of external leak. into


1. Drain the gasoline.
2. Remove the carb bowl(s) and turn on the petcock to drain the fuel in the lines.
3. Clean out the carb bowl(s) and replace.
4. Refill with gasoline, add 1 oz of Seafoam fuel system cleaner (I'm not a sponsor, I just haven't found anything better) to each gallon of gas. This will stabilize your fuel as well as do a great job of cleaning out the carb(s).
5. Try to start it.

If it still won't start, begin the standard troubleshooting procedure by first pulling a spark plug and turning it over to ensure gas is getting to the cylinder. If so, replace the plug, hold the plug wire slightly away from the plug and turn it over to ensure a spark jumps between the wire and plug. If so, it starts getting complicated. Buy a manual for the bike if you don't have one and follow the troubleshooting steps there.

Igniter won't start grill


could be a disconnected wire from the igniter. could be a bad ground. could be corroded. Is there a spark going across one of the jets? may need to resort to a butane grill lighter (cheaper than digging around and replacing parts.)

2003 harley 1200 sportster won't start when warm tuns over no spark just changed coil no difference starts right away when cold


Hi Curtis, the CKP sensor needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 8.7 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially ground cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm.
For a prime suspect please visit the website below and good luck.

Dont you just hate the intermitent faults? However messing with the ignition should have no bearing on the fault, other than the connection plate inside the switch has become corroded or worn away, have you removed or replaced the switch? Ifyou remove the switch and dismantle the base carefully to check for ware or corrosion, this can normaly be repaired by using a file or some heavy sandpaper to clean the contact plate, igniter units either work or they dont,

1999 chevy 2500 express van 5.7 litre wont start have spark recent tune up tried starting fluid


Please throw away that starting fluid. (Damages the engine more than anyone will ever know). Engines need 3 things to run: Fuel, Spark and Air. If you have a few minor tools check to see if you are getting a spark (or "current" through the wires using a tester for that), make sure she's getting fuel (clogged mini-fuel filter or maybe bad fuel pump/filter?) Air? That means you need to somehow ensure that when the #1 cylinder hits 'top dead center' that the valve for that piston is opening shortly and supplying the air. Otherwise ...no "putt-putt". Best of luck....

My 1992 chevy s10 pickup dies after it warms up??? have already replaced the fuel filter.....takes awhile for it to die....is this something to do with the sensor...If so where is it located at on the...


There are about 10 sensors...
If you have the 2.2 engine, see if the spark goes away when it won't start. You could have a module failing. Usually you replace the ignition module and the coils. But, ...diagnose it before you throw parts at it.

Dunill lighter - how do I fill it with butane?


  1. Ignore that other load of tosh.
  2. Do not refill your lighter immediately after using it. You should allow enough time for the lighter to cool off.
  3. The flame height adjuster on the bottom of the lighter should be set to minimum by turning CLOCKWISE with a small screw driver. The smaller, usually Phillips head, screw is for dismantling the lighter and should not be touched. The adjusting screw is a larger screw with a standard (slot) head. Some lighters come with a key to turn the adjusting screw. Some models have an adjusting wheel that requires no screwdriver. Please DO NOT FORCE the adjusting screw. If it is hard to turn in one direction this most likely means that the adjustment screw is already at the (-) or (+) limit. Try turning the other direction.
  4. Push the refilling valve with a screwdriver to let out the air inside until no hissing sound is heard. Hold the lighter away from your face. Air inside the fuel tank prevents butane gas from being injected into the tank and causes the lighter to malfunction.
  5. ALWAYS refill the lighter in an upside down position to avoid injecting air into the lighter.
  6. Shake the butane gas refill can, press the stem of the refill can directly onto the refill valve on the bottom of the lighter. Keep them in a straight position and let the gas go into the lighter for about 5 seconds. Repeat for a shorter period if needed.
  7. Allow 3-4 minutes to let gas and lighter components reach room temperature.
  8. Turn the flame adjuster counter clockwise to reach the desired flame height.
  9. Hold the lighter away from your face and body and ignite it carefully. If there is no flame, repeat the refilling process.

  10. If you experience gas leakage with a hissing sound while refilling the lighter, either you are not holding the lighter and gas can in a straight position or the stem of the gas can is not suitable for the lighter. In this case you need to use an adaptor which is usually supplied with the gas can.
  11. Premium butane is required to ensure optimum performance of your lighter. Lighters require the cleanest butane available at a pressure of 45 psi. Recommended using Premium Triple Refined Butane Gas that are packaged in 10-13 oz. cans with a metal fill tip nozzle. Non-premium butane with plastic fill tip nozzles are not recommended as they may cause inconsistent ignition and performance. Impurity of the gas can cause clogging of the burner valve or malfunctioning.

    WARNING: PLEASE, ALWAYS KEEP YOUR LIGHTER AWAY FROM THE REACH OF CHILDREN. USE COMMON SENSE IN HANDLING YOUR LIGHTER.

    Troubleshooting: If you are having problems with your lighter, make sure that:

    You are holding the lighter upside down while refilling. If you did not hold the lighter upside down, there will be air inside the butane tank. You will need to let the air out and try refilling again.

    The flame height is properly adjusted.

    You are not using cheap or incorrect fuel.

    There is no dirt or debris in the lighter. Try blowing forcefully into the top part of the unlit lighter.
