Question about Lynx L36FR (LP) Grill
I have a Lynx BBQ36FR barbeque, (2001), with manual igniters. Both of the two rotary igniters are producing very weak sparks, which are not enough to light the gas. The spark gaps on the electrodes are adjusted OK. I pulled out the panel holding the igniters and checked the spark to ground right at the output of the igniters, (bypassing the electrodes altogether), but the spark there is still very weak. The igniters are the rotary knob type with “dual” outputs to each control two separate electrodes. Both outputs on each igniter have the weak spark problem. However, I noticed that if I create a spark gap between the two electrodes on an igniter, (not the normal operational mode, of course), I get a very strong spark. This same phenomenon occurs on both of the rotary igniters on the grill, i.e. weak spark to ground on each of the two outputs on each of the two igniters but very strong spark between the two outputs on either of the two igniters. My conclusion is that that the ground connection between the igniters and the metal plate they are mounted on is very poor, thus creating a very high resistance for the spark generation to from output to the plate, (ground). I can explain the strong spark between the two outputs as being because the internal ground between the two generators in the igniter is OK, it’s just the connection of this common ground to the mounting plate that is bad. Thus, in effect, the two piezo generators are connected in series via the internal common ground and thus create the very large spark between the two outputs. I’ve not yet checked out the ground connection to the plate but I’ll be doing this todayPhew! Now to my question: Anybody had the same problem/symptoms? How is the igniter grounded to the plate? I assume it is through the mounting screws or the spindle but I’ve not had a good look yet.ThanksDave

SOURCE: 9-16 channels issue
So you have your core card and how many accel cards? Which interface is plugged into your core card? If you want the lynx to be 1-16 in and out the easiest thing to do is to make sure it is plugged in to the core card and your rosetta is plugged into the accel card installed after the core card. As far as I know the power sequence won't change the assignment of the i/o. If you don't want to change where the interfaces are plugged in then you can do it in the i/o setup and save the setup for the way your interfaces are plugged into the computer. If your already plugged into the computer like I said then you will need to check the i/o setup to make sure the i/o setup isn't all scrambled.

SOURCE: How to replace Spark igniters
The electrodes are only held on by 2 screws going into the front panel inside the grill. If you remove the screws (quiet often they're siezed so sometimes they have to be chiselled off) and pull it forward, you can disconnect the wire on the back and connect the new one. If you need any further assistance then please just ask.
