    Same problem, the button is a "soft touch" style, not a plunger-to-generate-spark style, it does have an aaa battery inside, which I replaced but still No good...

    I'm having the same problem with mine. I've replaced the battery, but still not getting it to spark, and trying to find replacement parts is getting ridiculous.

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!

I dont believe theres a battery on any of those. there's two wires on the back side of the igniter that sometimes rattle loose, check those.

Replace ignitor for hunter gas fireplace hfs40cv-3


Hi Vikki, Do you hear a clicking noise when go to turn on the fire? if not, then it's probably the battery that's flat. Most ignitors need a battery to make them work. There not easy to find either, they tend to tuck them away in the most awkward places. If you pull the front grate off and using a torch, you'll have to have a look around and see if you can see the back of the battery. Pull this out and replace. If you wan't to see how it's done, put in your search engine your question: Replace ignitor for hunter gas fireplace hfs40cv3, When the results come up, go down to the 7th result which should be "youtube" and click on that. This will take you to the demonstration.

Hope this helps!

Bosch W135 water heater Not igniting, no clicking sound. Replaced batteries and still not lighting


i think you need to check the battery holder is good

and your getting the right supply to the internal ignitor board
if it uses 2 batteries then check there connections are metal
and not gone green or other issue with oxides
and the contact and supply isnt so good to the ignitor
and its not working i assume the ignitors board isnt being supplied
or the switching to energise the spark isnt working
or the ignitor board has failed

you can also attach images from a camera
use macro mode and natrual light
or non macro mode

pics are good

more info and some checks

Are there batteries in the old Viking grills? my ignitors are not working. it doesn't look like there are batteries


If the ignitors make a sharp snap or click when you press them, then you don't need batteries. Try to clean the tips of the ignitors (carefully). On the other hand, if the ignitor is an electrical pushbutton (often rubberized) that doesn't make the clacking sound, it's electric and needs batteries. Try to (gently) unscrew the pushbutton assembly . Grillmakers often hide the battery inside.

Surface ignitors dont work


The oven and burners have separate igniters. There may be a battery that needs to be replaced for the burner's igniter module.

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.

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!!

I have the Fire Strone Legacy 361 and the electornic ignition does not work. How do I fix it or how can I get a new one. Thanks


Before investing money ... have you changed the battery in the ignitor button? If so, one of the most repeated mistakes grill users make is inserting the battery in the wrong direction. Generally, the + end of the battery should be up, facing you. If that's not the case, then the ignitor will not work. Also, make sure that there is no corrosion inside the battery holder. If there is, clean it out using a Q Tip and WD 40. It also helps to check the wiring of the ignitor , by tracing all the wires to make sure they are firmly connected. And that the spark ignitor for every burner is clean and free of grease.

if after all the above, you find you need to replace the ignitor, you can order one directly from the manufacturer or from the dealer/retailer you purchased it from.

Hope this helps you solve your problem and Happy Grilling!!

Replacing ignitor battery


Has it got a battery or has it got a Pitzo crystal? They eventually wear out, you may need to replace the ignitor button unit.
