Typically, these units attach so that the spark gap is near any of the burner perforations. It is then wired back to the ignition unit. The burner must be chassis grounded for this to work, as much the ignition unit.

Help. Side burner Wire


There is a fitting on the side burner assembly, near the gas tube. The wire is used to ignite the side gas burner. Be sure to zip tie excess wire out of the way of the burner and excessive heat.

I had to change the burner but now the igniter will not automatically ignite when pressing the button. What should I do?


The piezo ignitor head my need to be adjusted so that it is closer to the burner. If it is not sparking at all, check for a loose wire at the piezo ignitor and trace it back to the ignition button. Often times, it will simply lost it's ground. To resolve this, carefully pull the ignitor wire off the piezo pin and the push it back on. Do the same thing on the back of ignitor button.

If none of the above solves the problem, it's time to replace the ignition systems. The parts are inexpensive and can be purchased on-line directly from Char-Broil http://www.charbroil.com/Store/ReplacementParts.aspx or from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. These will be universal fit model ignitors .

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Where do you hook up the sideburner ignitor wire to on the char-coil bbq model 463721111


The side burner ignitor wire connects to the spare lug on the main ignitior module. That one module, controls all the spark ignitors at each main burner and the side burner. When you press the button all ignitors spark at one time. I know it sounds stupid, but that's the way Charbroil's R & D designed it. I guess it saves money.

Hope this helped you to make the final hookup. Happy Grilling!!

How do i remove the ignitors out of a charmglow grill model number 720 0036 HD 05?


The ignitor electrode(s) are held in place my a small tab that's attached next to each main burner with a small screw. To totally remove the ignitor electrode, disconnect the wire to it first, by pulling the wire's sleeve off the ignitor pin. Then unscrew the holder/tab. There should be no need to replace the wires, if you are just replacing the ignitor electrodes. Be sure to remove the battery from the Ignitor Module, before trying to remove the electrodes.

I have a kenmore gas grill that has the side burner. Up until recently, it has been working great. However, now the main grill won't light when pressing the ignition button but the side burner lights...


More than likely, the electrode spark ignitors on your main burners need to be cleaned. They will get covered with grease over time. Also check the wiring from the ignitor module to each spark ignitor being sure that all wiring is firmly in place. To clean the electrode(s) ... a cotton ball dipped in alcohol will work fine.

Hope this helped you solve the problem and Happy Grilling!

My main ignitor works and the side burner ignitor doesnt...it not 1 year old yet


Check the ignitor wiring going to the side burner to make sure that both leads are stil connected (ie making contact). If it appears that they are, remove the end of the wire on the side burner igniter and push it back on again. It may have just lost the ground to it.

The 3 main burners won't light on my Jenn-Aire 720-0163. I replaced the battery box and still no ignition. I have a side burner with separate spark generator, I plugged a wire from one of the main...


Sounds like your regulator is not working properly. You can replace it with a generic from one of your box stores. First try hooking up and unhooking up the gas canister a few times to make sure you are getting a good connection. If you are still not getting enough pressure to make your burners run properly, then replace the regulator. I had the same problem with mine!

Does conversion from LP gs to Natural gas on Ducane 30400040 (essentially makes it a model 30400041) require changing the inlet orofice on the IR burner ? I purchased conversion kit that included all new...


Did the conversion kit give you an LP orifice for every new gas valve? LP gas orifices have smaller holes than Nat gas orifices. Can you smell gas when you turn on the IR burner by itself? Some burners styles have an air adjustment on the end that fits over the orifice. Make sure it's getting enough air. Also make sure your ignitor sparker is positioned where the spark can ark against the top of the burner. Ducane grills have rotary ignitors, so turn it (with gas off) and see if you can actually see where it's sparking. If it's not sparking in the right place, it will be difficult to light.

I bought a floor model gas grill and the igitor is not wired ( but all the wires are there). Anyone know how i attache the wires to the push button ignitor?


the push ignitor should have a spade attachment on it for the side burner wire and the main wire end should be round and will push into the end of the ignitor.

How do I get the gas burner off so I can see the ignitor?


Turn off the gas at the tank. Remove the main grille wire. Looking up from the back you should see one clip on each venturi, these hold the burner on the tubes. Note the placement of the clips, to ease replacement.
The clips hook on both ends.
Remove both clips and carefully slide the burner toward the back and lift out. There's quite a jolt if you touch the ignitor while striking. Good luck. see link for charbroil replacement parts. http://www.charbroil.com/Consumer/ReplacementParts.aspx?ProductID=461
