The ignition light is a spark jumping, I assume, If so, try lighting with a match or something (be careful of the sparker) if it lights you may need to adjust the angle of the module so it catches the gas better.

Why won't the burners light even when I smell gas and hear igniter clicking?


Bill, two things possibly going on here that are common with an aging grill. First you need to turn off the fuel tank and set it aside. you mention that a clicking can be heard when pushing the igniter button which usually indicates good battery but if you have never changed it you may want to just as a good measure. Unscrew the bottom and you should find AA or AAA battery behind it. Now with battery good and the igniter generating a fast load clicking sound you want to get down and follow the wire that runs from the the back side of the igniter push button down inside and usually under the burner tubes ending out at one end of each burner. What happens when you press the igniter switch is, an electrical current is sent down the wire and when it reaches the end the current jumps to the closest metal it can find creating a spark.so you need to insure that the end of the wire is close to where the flame is generated but not so close that that you cant see a spark. Make sure the end of the wire is bare and clean as is the area on the burner where it arcs Now do this to all for burners. Turn all the knobs on the grill off and connect the tank. Make sure the lid is open now, and slowly open the valve on the tank. I say slowly like a ten count from close to full open. what can happen if you crank the tank valve open too quickly or with the grills valves open a vapor-lock effect can be created greatly reducing the flow of fuel from the tank. Iv'e seen many of the uninformed return 1/2 full tanks due to this problem. If you notice week flame or no flame but smell gas ALWAYS SHUT OFF VALVE ON TANK IMMEDIATELY KEEP LID OPEN AND LET THE AREA VENT BEFORE TRYING AGAIN lest you be the one being barbecued. Good Luck

Side burner lights but not main burner on gas grill


If you smell gas, don't attempt to light the burner. Instead, turn the gas off and inspect the fuel tank, lines and burners once the smell of has has cleared. Always grill where you have adequate ventilation and perform all repairs only after the grill has fully cooled from use.

My new (today) Q 100 will not light. I can see the spark from the igniter is working and when I turn the knob to light it, I smell gas. What is the problem?


The spark might not be hot enough, try replacing the batteries on the igniter. Also try starting the grill with the lid closed. There might be too much wind to get it to light.

I am smelling propane at the cooking surface when I turn the burner knob to the ignite position. I have been unable to determine the source of the leak. We've had the grill for a couple of years and have...


When the knob is in the ignite position, the gas should be coming out of the burners at a rate sufficient enough to light. It's normal to smell it before the igniter (either electric or push-button) ignites the gas.
If you recently moved the grill with the internal parts still inside it, it's quite possible the burner tubes have become loose in the holders. They are quite easy to remove because they are a commonly replaced component. Remove the grates and flavorizer bars according to your manual, and you should be able to reach in and check the position and snugness of the burner tubes.
Make sure you close the propane valve and disconnect the tank before doing this. Also, don't smoke when working on your grill. :)

One side won't light.


Spiders love the smell of the gas and sometimes crawl into the small tiny orifice and fill with web where the pilot lights since that is the area where the first part of the gas enters the burner-try using a needle or straight pin to clean

The gas is coming through, but does not light.


I have the same grill,and sometimes the same problem.First,with the gas off or completely disconnected,remove the grill grates and the flavor bars from the grill.Now you can see the heating element.A small wire brush will do the trick.Gently clean all the little holes in the element where the gas comes out.Then,with compressed air or even canned air(like what you use to clean a computer with)blow out the holes you just cleaned.Reassemble the grill and light.Should work fine after that.

Try using a lighter, the type used for grills. Since you can smell gas, the gas valve is working but the egnitter that gives the spark to ignite the gas is apparently not working.
Usually is it not the igniter but the controller that controls the igniter. If using the lighter as suggested, and it lites, you probably will have to replace the igniter controller for the range
