If 2 of the burners are lighting and 2 are not, you could have loose wires either at the electrode or the ignitor, the wires could be bad, or the 2 electrodes could be bad. If you can get to the back of the ignitor, you can switch the wires around on the back of the ignitor and see if this affects which burners light.

I have a Brinkman BBQ.The igniter works and lights the main burner but when I turn on the second burner it wont ignite.I can light it manually so it clearly it is getting gas. What do I need to do?


Check the igniter with the gas off to make sure the secondary igniter is lighting if it has one. Otherwise reposition the igniter closer to the source. If it isn't flashing, if not, it needs replaced

Rotisserie burner won't light


It could be a dirty or inop spark electrode. Also could be weak batteries in the spark igniter.

Before you start you should make sure that the ignition system has fresh batteries. The batteries are usually located within the igniter button but not always. Some BBQs will have a battery pack located somewhere on the BBQ and others you can remove the igniter button by turning it left to reveal the battery.

First verify that the rotisserie burner can be lit manually. Take a BBQ lighter or long stick match and then put the flame right at the base of the burner where the electrode is and then slowly turn on the burner valve. It should light within four seconds. If it does not then shut the burner off and check for any restrictions in the gas line for the burner.

If it does light with a match then the spark electrode could be dirty, out of position or simply the wire for the ignition system is loose. Press the igniter button and watch the electrode for a good bright spark at the burner. If you do not see any spark you can verify that the igniter wire has not come loose and also gently adjust the position of the electrode end a little bit closer to the burner using a pair of needle nose pliers(It should not be touching the burner). It does not need to touch the burner but have a really small gap.You can use a small wire brush to gently clean the electrode of any debris that might be causing a weak or no spark

If you are unable to remedy the non-spark issue all is not lost. You can still use the manual lighting procedure I described to light the burner. And remember to be careful when trying these procedures. I do not want you to get injured from delayed gas ignition. Be careful and have a safe holiday.

Ignitor on gas BBQ no longer works. Replaced battery and cleaned out chamber (light rust). I've tried to remove the ingnition housing, but the entire front panel of the BBQ needs to be removed. Suggestions...


Check to see if the probe where it sparks to the burner inside the grill is clean and not shorted by grease or other gunk and the burner itself in this area is not too heavily rusted or corroded. If not, short of disassembling the whole grill and replacing the spark module, spend $2-3 and buy one of those pistol type grill lighters. The ignition systems on BBQ grills rarely seem to last long.

Right front burner won't burn. Oven will not ignite.


Try lighting it with a bbq lighter. If no gas, then replace the valve. If it lights, replace the igniter. Hope this helps!
