Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill
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.
