Might just have to replace the battery. If yours has the click type built in the knob, the ignitor hold down could have rusted to the point where it is to far from the burner to spark. It works like a spark plug. Has to have about a 1/4 " gap to jump.

Most grilles have a battery that operates the ignition.

Where is the ignite button located

Hi phillzy21
If the main grilling burners don't ignite, try lighting them several times using the snap ignition. If that doesn't work, try using a match. In humid and windy conditions, sometimes the snap ignitions do not work properly. Make sure that the hood is fully open. Also, ensure that your gas is turned on and that the valve is fully open. Next, take out both the heat distribution plates and cooking grate. Turn the grill backwards, and hit the snap igniter a few times and look for a spark. If you see a spark, the igniter is working properly.

My igniter doesn't work becasue the wires are not attached - is there a diagram?

if you have more than one wire you probably have more than one igniter. Usually the igniter is attached to the frame (so it's grounded like a spark plug on a car). the other end of the wire attaches to the sparking fixture, which is located alongside one of the jets of the burner, There should be a connecter on the end of the wire. This slips onto the unit that sparks, usually on the bottom. They don't give you much extra wire, so stretch it out under the grill and the "sparker" will be within reach of the end of the wire.

Why won't my Weber grill ignite after installing a

Disclaimer- be careful when working with gas. Starters in gas grills are just about novelty anymore. Often, they only light 1/3rd or 1/4th of the burners and they usually stop working within one grilling season. I recommend using a wand lighter. Try to light just one burner but if doesn't light in 5 to 7 seconds, turn the gas off and wait to try again. Incidentally, you are turning the gas on at the tank, right? You should hear it when you turn the burner on.

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
or from

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

Gas Is On, Press Ignitor and charcoal doesn't ignite

Make sure the ignitor is sparking. sometimes they fail or spark in the wrong place. If no gas is flowing, try shutting off the tank and waiting about 15 seconds, then open the tank back up. Some models have a flow restrictor that shuts off the gas, you will hear a slight ping or click as this resets.

Ignition push switch will not create a spark

no spark? bad ground on igniter, igniter loose in its mounting, or to far away from metal may also be bad igniter.

Igniter Stopped working

Igniter could be shot. Take out igniter and put near something metal. Push button to see if sparks occur. If not igniter is no good. If this works, the end of wire that is near wear the igniter sparks to light grill could be to far away from metal, bend to get closer to metal, so it will spark, or end could be covered with grease, clean end and try for spark again.
