If you have a push button sparker the wire may be off or the sparker may be worn. You can check for spark when it is dark out. If you dont think you have spark then try to light the burner the "old school" way just hold a match or flame to the white area and then turn and hold the gas knob. If you can light it the old school way then its your spark. I would remove the sparker (unscrew the plastic nut on it remove the wire if its stll on) and test it on your hand. If the sparker works you will know because you will get a shock from the end of it. If you dont get a shock then you need to buy a new one. I hope this helps

Landmann 12376 ignition


Firstly, check the distance between ignite and burner, the spark must contact with the hole of burner.
secondly, turn on the control at maximum level then keep and push control knob try to Push-button Piezo ignition several times.
Finally, If you do not find out any trouble with gas supply, connection and assembly, do the same with step 2 however, Instead of push the button use the paper or wood with flame on to ignite for side burner for the first times, after that keep it running for few minute to heat burner, then turn off then use Push-button Piezo ignition to ignite.

With my experience it can work 100% after you heat the burner, if not call me. ^^

Infared burners ignitor won't work


Mike, have you replaced the battery in the igniter button ye? That's the first place to start troubleshooting. Be sure you install the new battery facing the same direction as the old battery. Also, check the interior contacts of the battery holder for corrosion. If you find any, use a Q-Tip sprayed with a little WD40 to clean it.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, trace the igniter wire from the igniter button to the spark igniter at the burner for damaged wire or a loose connection.

And finally, try match lighting the infrared burners to make sure that they are getting an adequate flow of gas.

Hope this helped you t troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Good Afternoon..On my Tuscany grill only 1 of the 3 burners work. looking from left to right, the left one does not work at all and the middle burner barely. No smell of gas on the 1st and very little in...


Sounds like the offending burners need to be removed, checked thoroughly for clogs and particularly the venturi valve on each burner. And while you have them out, remove the burner orifice of each burner and look for clogs.

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Own a charmglow gas grill 3 burner, having trouble igniting burners will not ignite, how do you match start


I have used those long-necked lighters as a temporary thing. You can buy replacement igniter kits at Lowe's/HomeDepot/similar, and they are easy to use. I hate to admit it, but I have taken the igniter out of the side burner that is attached to the grill and used it, until I bought a replaement. Match starting is a less than favorable option, as you are putting your hands and face in a bad place, but if you just have to do it, remove the grill grate over the burner that you intend to light. Get your fire source to the burner, and turn the gas on low. If the burner doesn't light pretty quickly, remove the fire source,shut off tha gas and wait several minutes with the lid still up for the gas to dissipate. You don't want to be trying to light the grill and have it flash on you. Most grills have an opening at the rear if the grill for manual lighting. Even so, the long lighters are waaaaaay better than the old kitchen match. I'm sure that you know, but always have the lid open when lighting the grill. (I just had to say it!)
Hope that this helps...really!
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rete this solution! Thanx!

Grill not lighting


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the push button igniter next to the burner control knobs on the front of your grill.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the grill has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck

Ignition


When you turn the gas valve to High or Ignite position..do you hear or smell gas going into the gas burner? If yes, then look at the position of the igniter in respect to the gas burner to see if it generates a spark either with or without gas running.. .. if you have gas entering the gas burner.. and if you've used the Grill a lot.. the jets may be clogged and need cleaned to allow gas flow thru them.. if the jets from the burner are clogged in or near the igniter..it may not ignite easily untill you get lots of propane in the area.. Check the gas jets to make sure you have gas coming out and then check the igniter to make sure it generates a spark.. Hope that helps..
