Why would the left burner activate the right igniter?


Sometimes a lot of the holes in the burner get plugged. I use a toothpick to clean them out.
Hope this helps.

Burner 1,2,&3 - Sometimes sparks, sometimes not. Sometimes lights, sometimes not. Burner 4 (small burner) ALWAYS lights. Igniter in burner 3 was replaced 6 monthes ago, worked great, now intermitant....


Clean the Gas Line and the area around the Igniter. If there is a breeze, it will make a less effective igniter now work. Some of these Igniter's are weak to begin with.

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

Left burner won't light with ignition, it will light with match


If each burner has its own igniter, you may need a new igniter. If both burners light off of one igniter, check the electrode to make sure there is a spark when you hit the igniter button.

Need to manually light the grill as the starter is not working

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.

Ignite prob


You've got two different things going on.  First - the type of igniter used on your model does wear.  I have had mine for over 10 years and have gone through 3 such igniters - and I grill nearly 3 times per week over the 25 week "grilling" season where I live. Spring for the $12 part and just replace it. The other issue sounds like a clogged cross-over system.  I would remove the burners, including the cross-over bar on the far left side that connects them.  Clean the exterior with a stiff steel/brass brush and the inside with a bottle brush.  Make sure all the holes are clear to allow gas to flow easily - use a wooden tooth-pick to do this to make sure you don't change the size of the holes! Put that baby back together and I think you'll find you'll be good as new!
These grills are great.  Now, if Weber could only fix the uneven heat problem between the left and right side I'd REALLY be happy!  (I wish they would even just admit there IS a problem!)
Good luck and happy grilling.
