Your Grill needs some servicing,may be because you used it again after two years the pipe got choked,because either dirt is gone into it or something else is stuck,which needs to be cleaned.

The most common cause of reduced flames is a pressure problem. Could be the gas regulator for the grill. When the burners are on try giving the gas regulator a tap with something hard and see if they change size. If they do then the rqulator could be sticking. And there is a very small hole on the regulator called a vent. If this hole gets plugged with dirt or grease you can get a low pressure problem. Look very carefully on the regulator housing for this small hole and verify that it is clear. Try using a small metal wire(like a tie strap for sandwich bags) to make sure it is clear. Also verify that the tank(if propane) is not overfilled. An overfilled propane tank will cause a pressure problem. You can turn the relief screw on the propane tank until no more liquid comes out to see if this fixes your problem.

How do I replace ignitor switch in thermos gas grill, if this is what is what I saw?


If that white is ceramic, I think it is the actual ignitor, not the switch.

None of my igniters on my 30400043 Ducane grill will light the burners. I've had a grease fire due to the burners rusting out and replaced the burners. The insulation on the wires to the igniters has...


As I tell customers, when they ask me, "How long will this grill last?" "That depends on well you take care of it with routine maintenance and cleaning."

The wiring for the electronic ignition and the spark ignitors are replaceable. The ignitor button or the "clicker" as you called is replaceable. But all you may to do, is change the battery inside the igniter button. To help you further, i have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your grill. It will have an exploded view of the parts, which should help you identify them by part number and order them from Ducane, if you like.

A far as the infrared burners are concerned, they blow out easily if the wind is just blowing slightly. That's why they have a thermocouple on the burner, to turn the gas off to it, when it gets blown out. When preheating an infrared burner, the hood/lid of the grill should be closed.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Ducane Affinity 4400 grill. The ignitor has worked fine for the first couple of years and just recently stopped working. I replaced the battery and this corrected the problem for a few weeks, but...


Several things come to mind, that may be contributing to the problem.

1. Corroded contacts in the battery holder. Remove the battery and inspect for corrosion. Use a
Q-Tip & WD40 to clean the contacts.
2. A loose or corroded connection of the ground wire from the ignition module to the grill's frame.
Trace and inspect the ground wire.
3. Loose or damaged wires to each burner's spark igniter. Remove the grill grates and the flame
tamers to inspect each spark igniter.

If none of the above solves the problem, replacing the ignition module is the next step. You can purchase one from Ducane http://www.ducane.com/contact/
or from http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/gasgrillparts/

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

My main ignitor works and the side burner ignitor doesnt...it not 1 year old yet


Check the ignitor wiring going to the side burner to make sure that both leads are stil connected (ie making contact). If it appears that they are, remove the end of the wire on the side burner igniter and push it back on again. It may have just lost the ground to it.

The striker button won't light the grill but a match will. It is an older Genesis Silver approximately five years old.


Hello,
If your piezzo ignitor is still sparking, but not lighting the burners, then you may have one of the following problems. 1) If you have a standard push button piezzo igniter or a rotary style igniter, check for spark. Can you hear or see the spark? It's hard to see the spark in bright daylight. It's easier to view the spark at dusk or dawn. It should spark an "arc" at the burner. If not, adjust it if necessary. 2) The igniter wire may have a short, causing the spark to arc somewhere else along the wire and not at the burner. Replace igniter wire. 3) It's also possible the igniter tip where it sparks has a cracked or broken porcelain portion of the igniter, causing the spark to not arc at the tip where it's supposed to. Replace the igniter piece. 4) Your burner may be clogged or rusted at the point where the ignitor sparks to light it. Clean the burner. 5) If your push button ignitor is not sparking at all, it may be stuck inside from being out in the weather. While pushing it, spray it with WD-40 to unstick it.
Hope this helps. Douglas

Does conversion from LP gs to Natural gas on Ducane 30400040 (essentially makes it a model 30400041) require changing the inlet orofice on the IR burner ? I purchased conversion kit that included all new...


Did the conversion kit give you an LP orifice for every new gas valve? LP gas orifices have smaller holes than Nat gas orifices. Can you smell gas when you turn on the IR burner by itself? Some burners styles have an air adjustment on the end that fits over the orifice. Make sure it's getting enough air. Also make sure your ignitor sparker is positioned where the spark can ark against the top of the burner. Ducane grills have rotary ignitors, so turn it (with gas off) and see if you can actually see where it's sparking. If it's not sparking in the right place, it will be difficult to light.

How do I install the replacement igniter in my Ducane grill?


you remove the nut in the back of the old igniter and the single wire that plugs into the end.  Then you pull the unit out.
Next, you insert the new igniter and replace the nut and tighten then reinstall the one wire into the end.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.
