Are there batteries in the old Viking grills? my ignitors are not working. it doesn't look like there are batteries

If the ignitors make a sharp snap or click when you press them, then you don't need batteries. Try to clean the tips of the ignitors (carefully). On the other hand, if the ignitor is an electrical pushbutton (often rubberized) that doesn't make the clacking sound, it's electric and needs batteries. Try to (gently) unscrew the pushbutton assembly . Grillmakers often hide the battery inside.

This is aCG4TDBN (elite with no back burner) aprox 6 years old. The ignitors are starting to go bad. How do I replace them?

First, you need to determine if it is the spark ignitors going bad or the Ignition Module.
If the spark ignitor tips are covered with grease or residue, this will give them the appearance that they're failing. Cotton balls and alcohol, work well to clean the spark ignitors. Also, check the wiring from the spark ignitors back to the ignition module. There may be some wear or even a burn on the wiring. Change the battery in the ignition module. Be sure the new battery is facing the same direction as the old battery, when you install it. Before installing the new battery, check the battery holder for corrosion on the contacts. If you see any, use a Q-Tip and WD40 to remove it.

As far as replacing the ignitors is concerned, you may only have to replace the spark ignitors and not all the wiring. It depends on how the wire is attached to the spark ignitor. If it can be carefully pulled of the bottom tip of the ignitor and then si back on, all you need is the spark ignitor. If not, you'll need the spark ignitor with the wiring attached. All of the wiring, will then have to be fished back to the ignitor module.

More more info on all the parts you may need contact BBQ's Galore 800-752-3085.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and determine if any parts do need replacing.

I have the Fire Strone Legacy 361 and the electornic ignition does not work. How do I fix it or how can I get a new one. Thanks

Before investing money ... have you changed the battery in the ignitor button? If so, one of the most repeated mistakes grill users make is inserting the battery in the wrong direction. Generally, the + end of the battery should be up, facing you. If that's not the case, then the ignitor will not work. Also, make sure that there is no corrosion inside the battery holder. If there is, clean it out using a Q Tip and WD 40. It also helps to check the wiring of the ignitor , by tracing all the wires to make sure they are firmly connected. And that the spark ignitor for every burner is clean and free of grease.

if after all the above, you find you need to replace the ignitor, you can order one directly from the manufacturer or from the dealer/retailer you purchased it from.

Hope this helps you solve your problem and Happy Grilling!!

How do i replace the ignitor. it doesnt spark. thanks

Before I get into how to replace the Ignitor Module, I have to ask ... Have you replaced the battery?

If not, the battery can be accessed by loosening the outer ring of the ingnitor button. The button will come of and yo will see either one AAA batter or one AA battery. Make note of the direction the head (+) of the battery is facing, because when you replace it with a new one, out of the package, alkaline battery, it must be facing the same direction.

If a new batter still doesn't solve the problem, there may be a loose wire going to the ignitor head inside the grill. Trace the wire(s) down to check this. In you can reach the ignitor head inside the grill, slide the wire off the bottom of the head (it's just pushed up on what will look like a large pin). Then push it back on. This will reestablish the ground. Also, check the spark portion of the ignitor to make sure its not covered with grease. If it is, clean it off with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol.

If none of the above solves your problem, you can remove the Ignitor Module by unscrewing the retainer ring, that is around the portion of the ignitor on the front of the control panel of the grill. The Module will then be removable from underside of the control panel.

The new module should come completely wired, which means you will have to run the new wires to the Ignitor head that I previously mentioned, as well as the ground.

Hope this helps you solve your problem. Please let me know if I can be of further help.

Happy Grilling!!!

Model # 463240904 ignitor stopped firing even after replacing battery?

First, be sure you have the battery turned the right way. Generally the Positive Tip (+) should be facing up. Yours may be the opposite, so try it both ways. Also, when you remove the battery look inside the holder for signs of corrosion. If there is some, do your best to clean it out with a Q-Tip soaked in WD-40.

If none of the above seems to solve the problem, look for loose wires from the Ignitor button assembly to the Ignitor Elements (Tips) in the grill. Also, the Ignitor Elements at each burner in the grill may be covered with grease, which will prevent them from firing. If you see that, clean them with alcohol.

Those are the basic things that cause a battery operated ignitor to fail.

Hope this helps to solve your problem. Please let me know.

PT450rbi grill Ignitor does not provide a spark. I have changed batteries and checked wire connections. Still no spark.

The ignitor may be covers may be covered with grease or the wire to the ignitor has lost it's ground.
Simply clean the grease of the ignitor with alcohol and a rag. Disconnect the ignitor wire from the igniter and then push it back on the needle like prong. One final thing ... make sure the battery(s) are facing the right direction.

Ignitor not working is there a battery that needs

The electronic ignitor on our Charmglow SS Gas Grill (Model 810-6320-B from Home Depot) was not generating a spark. The battery beneath the ignitor button (cap) had to be replaced. At first, still no spark. Next I used a Dremel hobby drill with a small wire brush head to clean the negative contact within the battery chamber. Also brushed the spring surfaces (battery positive circuit), ensuring good contact when battery inserted & ignitor button re-installed.
Checked wire contacts & gap of electrode tip.
Ignitor is working again!
