Question about Frigidaire GL38LKEC (LP) Grill
I have a Frigidaire Gallery series 38" gas grill and only 1 of the 3 ignition "forks" light consistently. There is power that gets to the other 2 forks because they spark periodically. It is like the spark in the forks is not hot enough to ignight the burner. There is plenty of gas flow at the location of the defective forks allowing a match to immediately ignight the burner. Is there a place to get replacement "forks" and these forks appear to be hardwired into the lighter system, so if a person was to get a new "fork" how would a person rewire the new part it.

If you notice that your Barbecue is getting hard to light or that the flame isn't as strong as it should be, take the time to check and clean the VENTURIS.
In some areas of the country, spiders or small
inserts have been known to create "flashback" problems. The spiders
spin webs, build nests, and lay eggs in the BARBECUE VENTURI TUBE (s)obstructing the flow of gas to the BURNER. The backed-up gas can ignite in the venturis behind the control panel. This is known as a flashback, and it can damage your Barbecue and even cause injury.
To prevent flashbacks and ensure good performance the BARBECUE BURNER and VENTURI
assembly should be removed from the grill and cleaned before use
whenever the BARBECUE has been idle for an extended period of time.
Also, when you lite the BBQ, make sure that you turn the gas on at the tank, wait a couple of minutes and then turn the knob on and light the burner. This is to make sure that the pressure is regulated and sufficient prior to lighting.
Hope this helps!
