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.

I contacted Weber and they sent me a complete igniter system. I will have to install it.

SOURCE: Our crossover igniter won't light. You can smell

It's an electric spark, so lightly sand the electrode tip plus the burner it sparks against. You will be removing rust and grease, probably. Try again. If still no spark, put the tip of a screw driver between the electrode and the burner. If that gets you a spark, adjust the electrode tip closer to the burner

Bad starter you can get one at Home Depot! If that does not work it is a bad electrode!

I have a 3week old Webber Q220 bbq and it does not ignite - Plenty of gas but igniter does not work - what to do please?


If it's no longer sparking, then it sounds like your igniter battery is dead. Unscrew the igniter button and replace the battery.

Faulty Junkers water heater


first find out from your manual what the flashing red light means...that should narrow your search---could be a thermocouple shot,a rubber diphragm in the gas valve has weakened and not operated, or gas pressure into the appliance may suddenly be too low, or springs in gas valve may have worn out---very many possibilities

Igniters will not stop clicking.


Hi


Thanks for using FIxYa.The igniter doesn't stop clicking due to a short inside the igniter circuit or due to moisture present on the ignition switch.Turn off the gas supply immediately and also unplug it from the mains power. Now take a blower or your hair dryer and blow hot air over the igniter. Also check for the following troubleshooting steps---


1) The gap between the igniter and the burner base is too large. *Should be approximately the thickness of two dimes.

2) Soiled igniter or burner base.

The above can be tested by switching the suspected burner with a known operating burner.

3) Loose wiring connections at the igniter, the grounding strap, or spark module.

4) Broken or pinched igniter wire between the burner and module.

Both of the above are physical inspections under the main top.

5) The module may have a week coil, which is not providing sufficient voltage to ignite the gas.

Even after performing these steps the igniter doesn't stop clicking then you need to replace the spark module.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

One burner does not light up. The ignition is clicking and providing sparks, and there seems to be plenty of gas. It works fine when i put a match to it.


Hi!
Make sure the burner cap or burner head is in place correctly, and that the jet or hole(s) for the ignition are clean of debris. In most cases like this, if there is spark present and no ignition, it means something is either clogged and dirty or the spark is not strong enough due to poor grounding.

One burner requires a match to light


had same problem. Used fine sandpaper on the little head (just above the white ceramic) that creates the spark. over the years the edges of the littel metal ring had gummed up but a 1 min sanding got it down to shinny metal and it sparked nicely.

Hayward h400 (electronic ignition) does not light. Jumped our pressure & limiter switches. Change gas valve. Still not lighting. Have plenty of spark. Help!!


If you have a multi-meter check for 24 vac between OR & W at the board or on the gas valve (OR & W are the 2 wires that go to the gas valve). Check the voltage while the igniter is sparking.
