You can cross the wires without any problems. As long as the ignitor makes a complete circuit it does not matter.

Thanks, this was very helpful and got me to open up my oven on my own and saves...


If you have had the unfortunate experience of having the igniter on your gas oven go out at the worst possible time. Then you probably are also dreading the installation of the new igniter. Do not fear the replacement really is no that hard.

The first thing that you need to do is remove the racks from your oven.

Then look around at the back of your oven for the screws that hold the bottom pan down.

Remove those screws and remove the pan. Some need to slide back and then come up others will just pull up.

Remove the heat shield that is over the burner.

Remove the bottom drawer of your oven.

Now you should be able to see the igniter that sits on an angle by the burner tubes with a couple of wires coming out of it.

Removing the screws that hold the igniter is probably the most difficult part with some ovens. Sometimes it is easier to remove the whole bracket that holds the igniter and then remove and replace the igniter out of the oven.

The wires for the igniter will go to a Molex plug. Follow the wires and undo the plug. On many units it will be below the oven in the drawer opening at the top back. You will need to lay flat on the floor and reach back in to do this.

Once you have the old igniter out then you can carefully install the new one. Hopefully when you get it out of the box it will be in one piece yet. I had to get an igniter for an oven I worked on shipped three times before I got one that was not broken.
Any dropping or banging against anything will crack that igniter. BE CAREFUL!!

Check to make sure that you can feed the Molex plug and wires down through to the bottom before fastening the igniter.

Once the igniter is secured and the plug is connected, you can then replace the other parts in the reverse order that they came out.

This all sounds difficult, but really is not that hard. Even a first timer will have it done in less then a half an hour.

This is aCG4TDBN (elite with no back burner) aprox 6 years old. The ignitors are starting to go bad. How do I replace them?


First, you need to determine if it is the spark ignitors going bad or the Ignition Module.
If the spark ignitor tips are covered with grease or residue, this will give them the appearance that they're failing. Cotton balls and alcohol, work well to clean the spark ignitors. Also, check the wiring from the spark ignitors back to the ignition module. There may be some wear or even a burn on the wiring. Change the battery in the ignition module. Be sure the new battery is facing the same direction as the old battery, when you install it. Before installing the new battery, check the battery holder for corrosion on the contacts. If you see any, use a Q-Tip and WD40 to remove it.

As far as replacing the ignitors is concerned, you may only have to replace the spark ignitors and not all the wiring. It depends on how the wire is attached to the spark ignitor. If it can be carefully pulled of the bottom tip of the ignitor and then si back on, all you need is the spark ignitor. If not, you'll need the spark ignitor with the wiring attached. All of the wiring, will then have to be fished back to the ignitor module.

More more info on all the parts you may need contact BBQ's Galore 800-752-3085.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and determine if any parts do need replacing.

Ignitor wire disconnected from the bottom of the grill. wondering where you connect the clip to? not seeing anywhere after inspecting it.


Kurt, you may have to remove the ignitor button to see the male lug that the wire's female end slides onto. It will either be a copper or stainless steel lug.

Hope this helped you.

I have a firemagic 6 burner grill with 3 ignitors- 2 of my ignitor wires came loose somehow - wondering how do i reconnect them? Tried to push them into the back of the ignitor but wont just plug back in.


What you're trying to do is correct. It's the only way the ignition wires attach to the Ignitor Module. Are the push-on female connectors on the end of the wires still intact? If not, that's the problem.

Hope this helps you.

If the spark you see is in the ignitor box and not at the burner(s), then there's a wire loose somewhere or the ignitor is not grounded properly. Also check to see if the ignitor tips in the grill next to burner(s) are covered with grease. If so, clean them with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol. Check each ignitor wire at each ignitor , make sure they are secure,
