I';m sure everyone thinks they are giving good advice, but READ THE SYMPTOMS. The guy says his ignitor doesn't "click" anymore. And most of you tell him he needs a new gas regulator. Fix his problem, don't create new ones. He needs his ignitor fixed. Maybe just a new battery? Or maybe the whole ignitor unit But certainly not a new regulator, etc, etc.

The problem you're having is related to the OPD Valve in the Propane Tank. But, it is solvable by following the instructions below.


1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: Propane grill wont ignite

Well, it sounds like your grill is experiencing vapor lock. Vapor lock is basically air caught in the gas line and there is a relatively easy method to fix this. I want you to try this method and tell me what you get, ok? First, open the tank's valve, then open the burner valve and light the grill. Immediately after you see a blue flame, turn off the tank's valve, count to five and then close the burner valve. Repeat this procedure three times, the problem should clear itself.

If you are still experiencing problems, the regulator may be faulty and needs to be tested next, so go get a new regulator from your Lowe's and run the procedure again. If after all this, you are still experiencing the problem, let me know here. Good luck!

How do i chane the ignition button on the gas grill


Contact manufacturer for new igniter, new igniter should come with instructions for replacement. It should be fairly simple, disconnect two wires and retaining nut and then replace with new igniter, connect wires and screw on retaining nut.

How do I take off the ignition button from the front of my char broil red gas grill to change the battery?


It is not necessary to remove the whole ignition module. Just unscrew the plastic ring around the rubber push button. The battery holder is inside that. Be sure to install the new battery facing the same way the old one is.While the old one is out, check the contacts inside the battery holder for corrosion. If you see any, a Q-Tip and WD40 work well to clean it OFF.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Grilling!!

I had to change the burner but now the igniter will not automatically ignite when pressing the button. What should I do?


The piezo ignitor head my need to be adjusted so that it is closer to the burner. If it is not sparking at all, check for a loose wire at the piezo ignitor and trace it back to the ignition button. Often times, it will simply lost it's ground. To resolve this, carefully pull the ignitor wire off the piezo pin and the push it back on. Do the same thing on the back of ignitor button.

If none of the above solves the problem, it's time to replace the ignition systems. The parts are inexpensive and can be purchased on-line directly from Char-Broil http://www.charbroil.com/Store/ReplacementParts.aspx or from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. These will be universal fit model ignitors .

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Can not light flame


Gas is on. Look to see if the magneto is working properly. Do you see a spark when you press the ignition button? Perhaps the magneto gap is too much or the gas is not in contact with the spark.
