Should have a spade connector on both ends of the wire. Take it back, order new wire online, or crimp an end to the existing wire.

Control panel is dark, unresponsive...electricity is confirmed (gas burners are igniting)... TICKING SOUND is coming from behind


The piezoelectric igniter does not require and external electrical source. A portable gas grill uses the same device and need no electricity supplied from a line. The ticking is the piezoelectric igniter's spark. The point is the electricity is NOT confirmed. It need to be properly reconnected to the electricity.

How To Fix Grill Igniter No Longer Working


<ol> <li>If you have a battery type igniter, first try replacing the batteries.</li> <li>What you need to find out is if you are getting a spark in the igniter unit. The igniter is going to be near one (or several) of the burner(s).</li> <li>Some grills have independent ignition and some have a single igniter.</li> <li>If you have independent ignition and none of the burners will light then you have a faulty button or the wiring is bad. You should get these parts replaced.</li> <li>If you have independent ignition and one of the burners will not light or you have a single igniter and none of them will light you probably have something clogging that igniter.</li> <li>Pull off the cooking grates and barrier to get down to the burner.</li> <li>Locate the affected igniter and push the button. You should see a spark.</li> <li>If the igniter is clogged, carefully clean it out and test it again.</li> <li>If there is nothing clogging the igniter then you need to inspect the wiring. Faulty wiring or switches will need to be replaced.</li></ol>

How do i chane the ignition button on the gas grill


Contact manufacturer for new igniter, new igniter should come with instructions for replacement. It should be fairly simple, disconnect two wires and retaining nut and then replace with new igniter, connect wires and screw on retaining nut.

The ignitor does not work. I am able to start a flame by inserting a match and then turning on the burner knob. Either first, middle or back. Is there a AA battery that is used to create a spark for the...


Your grill uses a push button piezo type of igniter. Each time you push the button you should her a click and a an electrical charge should be sent down a wire to an electrode where a spark will jump from the tip of the electrode to the nearest metal surface creating a spark to ignite the gas. The first thing to do is make sure the wire from the electrode to the igniter is actually connected to the igniter. Then make sure the wire is connected to the electrode. Make sure there are no breaks in the wires insualtion that could cause a short. Check the electrode and make sure it is held securly in place and not moving around. Check the ceramic white insualtor for breaks or cracks casuing a short. If all of this is ok, then it is most likely the igniter itself. You can get a replacement at www.minxenterprisesinc.com for $9.49 plus tax and shipping.

New World TGO 70 grill not working because door was closed


THIS IS PROBABLY BEST LEFT TO A QUALIFIED ENGINEER. To reset the grill thermal cut out. This is located under the metal panel at the top of the unit and it is necessary to ether partially or fully remove the whole oven from its housing to get at it. 1. Disconnect electric supply. 2 remove the 2 housing retaining screws. These are located either side of the at the top of the grill cavity. 3.Pull the whole oven /grill unit out and support it underneath to stop it falling forward. 4. Remove metal cover covering top of oven. 5. the safety cut out is a small component that has 2 wires connected to it by spade terminals, in the middle of which is a small red button. push this button gently with the end of a pencil or screwdriver until it clicks. This should now be reset and allow the gas supply to the grill to resume. Finally reassemble making sure that the integrity of the gas and electrical supplies are, in no way compromised and test.

Grill not lighting


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the push button igniter next to the burner control knobs on the front of your grill.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the grill has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck

I need the assembly instructions for a Four Seasons Gas Grill


I purchased this grill and assembled it yesterday. I noted the area that is providing confusion as it is wrong. Please follow the following instructions. It is quite simple when you have a background in electrical and electronics engineering. These directions should translate my knowledge into step by step instructions for all.

1. Attach the two thinner wires with two terminals on each wire, from the front of the grill head to the larger (Input or Control) terminals on the igniter assembly. These two wires are from the push to turn micro switches on each of the burner control knobs on the grill head. Attach the two smaller terminals on these thinner wires to the micro switch on the side burner control connected as part of the regulator and hose assembly.

2. Attach the three thicker wires from the front of the grill head to three of the six smaller (output) terminals on the igniter assembly. These wires go to the igniters themselves.

3. Connect the two thicker wires from the rear of the grill head to two of the six output terminals on the igniter assembly. The small wire is for the igniter on the bottom infrared burner and the larger, thermally insulated wire, connects to the igniter on the rear infrared burner.

4. Connect the lead from the side burner to the remaining small output terminal on the igniter assembly.

5. Mount the igniter to the front of the right side shelf by removing the battery cover and hexagonal nut. Insert the shaft through the hole in the front of the right side shelf and secure with the hexagonal nut. Replace the battery cap. Do not install the battery at this time.

6. Mount the side burner control by inserting the long end of the control into the side burner assembly. Attach the control to the front of the right side shelf with the two screws held in the front of the control assembly. NOTE: You must remove the screws from the control assembly and insert them through the Off/On bezel and front panel of the right side shelf before screwing them back into the control assembly. Install the control knob for the right side shelf. Verify that the connections to the side burner control micro switch made in step 1 are still intact.

7. Insert the battery into the igniter assembly by removing the batter cap and inserting the AA size battery with the positive (pointed) end out. Replace the battery cap.

8. Test the igniter assembly prior to installing the gas tank and installing the “Flame Tamers” and grates by pushing in on each burner control knob in turn. Listen for a popping sound and look for sparks at each burner.

I hope this helps.

Where do ignition wires go?


The loop type connection that you are referring to is probably what they call a ring lug and that should be bonded to the grill frame.. The other wire goes directly onto the ignitor and when you push the button, yo develop a spark from the ignitor electrode to the grounded part of the gas burner.. that is near the gas jet.. Hope that helps
