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

SOURCE: Need to know how to reset the LP Gas flow for a

If you just installed a new, full tank of propane and turned it on and the burners wouldn't light.

Turn the tank off, disconnect from the grill hose (you'l hear a whooshing sound and smell gas, but that's alright). Wait several minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the gas valve on very very slowly, until it's full open. Now, try lighting your grill.

Remember, you will need to turn the tank valve on very very slowly every time you change tanks or turn the tank off after grilling.

What happened was this ... When you turned the tank on quickly it locked up the grill's gas regulator. Doing what suggested usually solves the problem. Oh, one other thing ... be sure your tank is not empty. The grill you have uses a lot of gas.

I have a Brinkman BBQ.The igniter works and lights the main burner but when I turn on the second burner it wont ignite.I can light it manually so it clearly it is getting gas. What do I need to do?


Check the igniter with the gas off to make sure the secondary igniter is lighting if it has one. Otherwise reposition the igniter closer to the source. If it isn't flashing, if not, it needs replaced

How do I convert a natural gas BBQ grill to propane?


You change the nozzle or jet or the complete regulator that regulates the flow of gas. I have seen some company's that will sell you the part or the regulator. You will have to go the the Webber and see if they even offer the part. Or maybe a BBQ dealer who sells and services Webber might do it for you. I know most companies will not sell the part or parts because of the liability. Good luck.

Ignition button not working, however the bbq will light with a match. I have replaced the old gas bottle and this is still an issue?


Sounds like you need to replace the igniter. If the gas lights with a match, there's nothing wrong with the gas bottle. line or burner.

I have a Webber Q Family BBQ for about 2 - 3years. I noticed say last 6 months that the burners are not working properly and the grill is not hot enough ie take 3 times longer to cook a steak etc. I read...


OK, it sounds to me that when you changed the propane tank, you may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Doing so causes the built-in excess flow valve to check, which only allows a trickle of gas through. Do this: Turn off the gas tank, disconnect it and drain any remaining gas from the grill by opening a valve to a burner. Close the grill valve and then reconnect the tank. Very slowly open the tank valve and try lighting a burner again and see it that solves the problem. Douglas

Right front burner won't burn. Oven will not ignite.


Try lighting it with a bbq lighter. If no gas, then replace the valve. If it lights, replace the igniter. Hope this helps!

Weber gas bbq


Hello stevie66, disconnect the gas tank, carefully remove the burner element (the thing with the small holes) and soak it in a bowl of vinegar overnight. Remove and shack the excess out, remount and connect the gas. Open the gas line about 1/4 turn and CAREFULLY LIGHT. Please E-Mail the results. Thank you.

Gas hob ignition


1) try leaving it off for a while to see if the ingition box needs to reset
2)when you turn on the burnner does the ignition start by itself or do you have to "ignite" the burnner yourself?
3) if oyu have to ignite the burnner yourself, try using a bbq lighter to see if the gas has gotten to your range yet.
4) if no gas present, there is ussually a reset in the regulator. it needs to be reset if it gets low on pressure. you need to have the lines connected and then turn on the gas AND then the appliance. if the appliance is turned on before the gas in turned on the rest will pop.
lets us know what happens :)
