I am having a problem with my DCS 36" grill. The burner will not ignite. I have checked the ignitors and all of them are sparking. The gas seems to be coming out and I can light them with a match or lighter. Every once in a while I can get one of them to light when the gas is moved to the med or low position. What is wrong?

Remove the burner cap and lift the burner the igniter is fitted through the burner and held with a circlip underneath you will probably need to lift the top to access the wiring back to the igniter pack.
just because the ignitor glows it doesn't mean it's good,it takes 3.2 amps for the ignitor to open the gas valve and ignite the flame,usually if the flame doesn't ignite in around 40 seconds the ignitor is bad.also check the burner tube,your model number doesn't come up so i don't know if you have one or two ignitors in this oven but i've found that when the ignitor starts to fail and the customer waits to long to have it looked at the ignitor burns a hole in the tube and then both the ignitor and tube has to be changed,hope this helps and good luck with your oven.
The problem most likely the ignitor itself. If you have the paperwork that came with the grill, It should have an origional replacement parts page. If not, you may be able to get a universal at your local hardware or home supply store.
First, make sure the battery if turned in the proper direction. On most grills, the + end should face you. Also, check for any corrosion inside the batter holder, If you see any, clean it out with a Q tip and a little WD40. Check the wiring behind the control panel where the ignitor module is located. Be sure all the wires are still attached and the ground wire is attached firmly. If none of this solves the problem ... Remove the cooking grates and flame tamer and clean all of the ignitors next to the burners. They may be covered with grease. A cotton ball and alcohol works well to clean them.
If by some slim chance, none of the above solves the problem, it's time to replace the ingnitor assembly. You can purchase it directly from DCS or the dealer you purchased the grill from.
