Replace the igniter. The device uses piezo electric theory and it has no battery.

SOURCE: changing the ignition on my weber grill

I just changed mine last week. I used a wrench underneath to turn it -- it was held on by a couple of plastic anchors. As I turned, it broke one off and freed up the piece so that it could be moved and pulled thru the opening. You really can't hurt it since you are replacing it so give it a yank or two -- the new one went in just fine.

SOURCE: Back burner won't light on my Weber Genesis Silver A Gas Grill

Only front burner lights (out of three) and it only has flame comming out of half of the tube.

SOURCE: Gas is not moving from tank to Weber silver grill

  1. you need to shut off all the valves and disconnect the tank.
  2. slowly open the tank valve and listen for gas escaping. (DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SMELL FOR THE GAS, THIS COULD PROVE HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH)
  3. you are looking for a valve or connection that is clogged. if gas escapes from the tank the reconnect the tank and check at each connection.
  4. if all connections are complete and functional, your problem may be at the burner itself. Using a push pin, **** the holes in the burner, paying attention to the amount of greasy build up.
  5. If the level of build up is severe, remove the burners completely and soak them in a tub of concentrated dish soap and warm water. DO not use hot or cold water.
  6. remember to shut the tank valve off in between each test cycle.
  7. a clean grill is the key to keeping it functioning properly,
  8. if you are having trouble getting the burners out, spray lighter fluid on the burners holes and light with a fireplace match, or rolled piece of paper.
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

My electric start button will not spark when pushing down, the grill is only one year old.


The issue might just be that the battery powering the starter is dead. There should be a small compartment where there is a small battery stored. Change out that battery as well as making sure all of the wires from the battery to the button to the lighter are all connected well.
Hope that helps!

Rear Burner is hotter than the front burner on my Weber Grill


Since the grill is 15 years old, it is probably time to rebuild it. Replace both burners and anything else that is not working properly

The electronic ignition on my grill no longer sparks to ignite the gas. I replaced the battery and cleaned the contact points but there was not any improvement. Can the entire assembly be replaced?


Yes you can replace the entire assembly.
However you can try adjusting the spark gap to see if this will resolve the issue.
Heat will often expand the spark gap thus rendering a spark impossible.
Small adjustments and be careful not to break the ceramic insulator.

Many gas grills use a static ignitor that does not require a battery.
Big red button you push that causes a snapping noise. This makes a spark and lights the gas. These can last quite a long time and inexpensive too.

Good luck!

The igniter does not work. i changed the battery. it used to click when pressed down and pop up. now it does not. i do see that the spring is still in the unit.


I had horrible luck with my Weber igniter. They just don't seem to last. I replaced mine two or three times in the 10 years I had my grill, then finally gave up and started using a lighter. So, try replacing it with a Weber part, or one of the universal igniters at your favorite home improvement store.
