There could be a short in the wire running to the electrode, or a crack in the ceramic insulation of the electrode. In either case the spark would not always reach the tip of the electrode or would be very weak.

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.

Can not get rotisserie burner to light


There may be several reasons the rotisserie burner will not light. First, the orifice to the burner itself may be clogged or partially clogged preventing gas flow. There may be a problem with the spark generator, the wire running from the spark generator to the electrode, or the electrode itself. The first thing to check is the gas flow. When you turn on the valve for the rotisserie burner you should hear and smell the gas if it is flowing. Light the rotisserie burner with a manual lighter, if it lights manually, then the gas if flowing.
The seconc thing to look for is a spark from the electrode when you turn or push, depending on the type of spark generator you have. If there is no spark, the it is most likely an ignition system problem. If you have a battery operated spark generator, replace the battery and try again. If the spark generator is a piezo, you have to repalce the spark generator. If you install a new battery, or replace the piezo spark generator, and there is still no spark, then you have to get to the wire and the electrode. Look for bare spots in the wire insulation that would cause a short. Check the electrode for a cracked or broken insualtor. In either case, the wire and/or the electrode will need to be replaced.

I have a stainless steel Ducane BBQ with five burners plus side burner and a rottisserie burner , which does not work. It is approx 5 years old and I have never used the rottisserie till last week. I have...


Since you've never used it. It may simply be a case that the infrared rotisserie burner is dirty and clogged with grease from cooking on the main burners. In addition, the Thermocouple and the igniter for that burner may also have a grease build up. In which case it won't allow the burner to light.

The electronic igniter that lights the main burners, also ignites the the rotisserie burner. Are you geting the click noise on the main burner igniters? If not, the battery in the igniter button needs to be replaced. Be sure to take note of the way the old battery is facing, when you unscrew the igniter cap. Because, that's the way the new battery should face.

Also, try match lighting the rotisserie burner. To do this, turn the Rotisserie Burner's Control Knob to the ON position and push it in, as you touch the lit match to the burner. If the burner lights continue to hold the burner knob in for a couple of minutes. This allows the Thermocouple and the ceramic plaques to heat up completely. Then slowly release the burner knob and the burner should remain lit.

If it doesn't stay lit, clean the burner and the Thermocouple ,in the manner that is described in your Owner's Manual.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

CalFlame 4-burner convection BBQ rear rotisserie burner does not work. Converted to natural gas. There is a spark but gas will not ignite. Held match to burner and it would light but would go out when...


Check the air shutter adjustment on the rotisserie burner. It may be starving for air. Also make sure the burner is properly positioned over the orifice. When it was converted, it may not have been put back into place correctly. Also, it's possible the orifice may have been re-drilled out at the wrong size for natural gas. If you know the rotisserie burner BTU rating, I can look up the correct orifice hole size to check if it's right. Douglas

The rotisserie heating element does not fire up on my barbeques galore grand turbo BBQ. Electric ignite seems to be working, but smell gas no heat


The rotisserie should have a thermocouple near the burner. If you have to hold in the knob, or push a red button to get the gas to flow to the burner, and the electrode sparks and the burner lights, you have to continue to hold the knob or button in until the thermocouple gets hot enough to keep the gas on. If the burner keeps going out, you could have a bad thermocouple.

Car dies intermittantly like no fuel or fire - car cools down and restarts


Need to know make and model, but do these tests: Run the car until it dies. Pop hood, pull one plug wire off of a spark plug, place an old but working spark plug in the connector, lay the spark plug on any metal. Have someone crank car. Do you see a spark? If so, then ignition working. Most likely cause of a car that dies with a working ignition system is the fuel pump system.
Pump working? Do this test: With car that just died, turn key off. Turn key on again (not to start, just to "on"). Do you hear the faint hum of the fuel pump? (I'm assuming your car is fuel injected. Carbureted - just check the ignition as above.) If so, then it could be any of the sensors. Run the engine codes. You should find something. If you DON'T hear the pump run for about 5-7 seconds then shut off automatically, then it is either your pump or the pump relay. Get those looked at.

Thermador Gas Range - Griddle ignition will not spark


I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it), but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner) thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice would be great.

Ducane 3400042 lighting problems


Good answer... but remember (if you have the regular burners on... The Rotisserie will not light.) 1. Cut all knobs off... Then push and hold in Rotisserie button as you turn to high.
2. Press ignition button, until you hear rotisserie ignite. 3. Keep holding in the rotisserie button until the thermostat realizes the gas is on and burning. (IT must get hot enough to keep gas flowing.) Hope that helps, Dave
