Ignition problem on 2nd and 3rd tube

I have thoroughly cleaned and maintained our webber, regularly. Now, First burner lights well. 2nd and 3rd tubes will not light when put on. However, they will light individually if lit manually. All tubes, orfices, lines are clear?

Can you help me out?

Thank you

You may have to take them out and blow the burners out with an air compressor. It is very hard to tell if they are stopped up internally.

Can get the oven to stay lite


If the oven lights for 4 seconds and shuts off you are experiencing an ignition module safety lockout. First verify that the flame is lighting at the top of the burner and reaching the very bottom venturii tube where the flame sensor is located. If this bottom tube isn't lighting or it takes longer than 4 seconds to light then you have a dirty burner and it needs to be taken out and rinsed. If the bottom tube is lighting and then going out your flame sensor needs to be cleaned, which is easy.

My back burners wont light but my front two will genesis silver edition


If the Cross Over Tube/Burner is clogged, the ignition flame can't get to the last 2 burners to light them. To check this, light the front 2 burners using the ignitor button and try match lighting the back burners. If they match light, that indicates that the Cross Over Tube is clogged. You will need to remove it to clean it properly. Which can be a chore in itself. Be careful removing it, because if it's rusted, it may break.

Hope this helped you, Kevin and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have 3 burners...two will light and one won't light anymore.....??? Bill


Bill, I suspect that the third burner needs to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. As does the venturi valve on the open end of the burner. If however, the 3rd burner is the one that ignites from the cross over tube burner, you will have to clean and/or replace the cross over tube burner.

To assist you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your model grill, Just in case you have misplaced yours. You can download and print it for future reference.

Dryer works bu not lighting the furnace.What do u think?


Two things come to mind when this happens. The duct work is totally plugged up or the spark ignitor is out of order.
Check the vent tubing by completely disconnecting it and cleaqn thoroughly clean. I see one once I took apart and filled a 15 gallong trash bag full of lint. The dyer was three years old and had a 10 foot vent tube. 4 feet of tubing is always recomended at the longest length used. If longer it needs to be cleaned evey few months for 100% efficiency
If the tubing is clean turn on the dryer and listen for the click the sopark ignitor makes to light up the burner. If no click is heard the ignitor is bad

Have a rheem criterion II. Model


The way it lights is that the gas is spread from one burner to the next by either a flame tray or small holes drilled in the burner tubes. If the flame does not get all the way across the burner tubes within a few seconds, the unit goes out on failure. Clean and inspect each burner tube, not just the orifice. Clean any tray that connects the burners. You can use a small wire brush or tooth brush but be careful near the glow igniter as it is very fragile.

The ignition is very erratic sometimes the flame will not make it to the sensor and shuts off the gas valve then it will ignite on the 2nd or 3rd try


Chances are it needs a good cleaning. Rust and a white type of powder builds up in the burner slots/Mostly due to moesture during ugnition. Unless you can clean your furnace I would suggest to call a service tech and have it cleaned and the gas pressure checked. Ask for a maintainance contract they run about 100 to 125 per year and they cover two trips and two clean and checks. Otherwise it would cost you more than that for one visit. Rus

All of the sudden my front right burner will not light. I clicks like it wants to light and you can smell the gas but it will not light.All the other burners are working fine.


Take a look at the burner when it is clicking and make sure the igniter electrode is creating a spark. If the burner head is removable pull off the burner cap and head. Inspect the burner head for debris and clean. Make sure any small holes on the burner head are not plugged. There is usually a small hole where the electrode is that a gas must exit for proper ignition. If the burner has a center igniter for two burners then inspect the flash tube for that burner and make sure it is centered and there is no obstructions in the flash tube. On that burner there are little holes located in front of the flash tube call step-up ports. Check to make sure those little holes are not plugged.
