Question about Char-Broil Commercial Stainless Steel Grill

1 Answer

Pulse ignition wiring

I took the front panel off of the unit and the pulse ignitor has 4 wires coming out of it. 3 wires are the same and are hooked up to the 3 different ceramic sparkers( don't know the name ) and then ther's a 4th wire which is skinier and about 6-7 inches long. The question--where the heck does the 4 wire get connected to, I don't see anything that looks like it should be connected to it

This is aCG4TDBN (elite with no back burner) aprox 6 years old. The ignitors are starting to go bad. How do I replace them?

First, you need to determine if it is the spark ignitors going bad or the Ignition Module.
If the spark ignitor tips are covered with grease or residue, this will give them the appearance that they're failing. Cotton balls and alcohol, work well to clean the spark ignitors. Also, check the wiring from the spark ignitors back to the ignition module. There may be some wear or even a burn on the wiring. Change the battery in the ignition module. Be sure the new battery is facing the same direction as the old battery, when you install it. Before installing the new battery, check the battery holder for corrosion on the contacts. If you see any, use a Q-Tip and WD40 to remove it.

As far as replacing the ignitors is concerned, you may only have to replace the spark ignitors and not all the wiring. It depends on how the wire is attached to the spark ignitor. If it can be carefully pulled of the bottom tip of the ignitor and then si back on, all you need is the spark ignitor. If not, you'll need the spark ignitor with the wiring attached. All of the wiring, will then have to be fished back to the ignitor module.

More more info on all the parts you may need contact BBQ's Galore 800-752-3085.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and determine if any parts do need replacing.

I have a firemagic 6 burner grill with 3 ignitors- 2 of my ignitor wires came loose somehow - wondering how do i reconnect them? Tried to push them into the back of the ignitor but wont just plug back in.

What you're trying to do is correct. It's the only way the ignition wires attach to the Ignitor Module. Are the push-on female connectors on the end of the wires still intact? If not, that's the problem.

Hope this helps you.

How to replace starter

Are you trying to replace the entire ignition system or just the battery operated starter module?

Neither is is extremely hard to do. The best way, is to keep most of the existing wiring in place to use as a guide. The Ignition Module is the easiest to remove. Unscrew the outer plastic ring of the igniter button and the module can be removed from under the control panel. If that's all you're planning to replace, leave the wires intact to the old module and transfer them one by one to the new module. Then install the new module in reverse order of the way you took the old one out. When you install the new battery into the new module, be sure the + end of the battery is facing you, when you slide it into the holder or it will not work.

If you're replacing the spark ignitor(s) at the burner, leave the existing wiring intact (unless it's damaged) . Remove the cooking grates, the flame tamer and the igniter shield and you will have access to the spark ignitor(s). Slide the wire off the spark ignitor pin, remove the old one and install the new one. Slide the ignitor wire onto the pin and you're ready to go.

A word of caution, always use Broilmaster Parts and watch your hands and fingers around any stainless steel parts. As, it they be very sharp and cut you before you realize it.

Hope this helps you replace the starter.

Please be kind enough to give me a good rating for the solution I provided you. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

I have a KBNU367TSS and I am having problems with 3 of the 4 ignitors. Two of them will not work at all and one of them gets red but not hot enough to ignite the gas. The rear burner ignitor works fine....

One problem with glo plug ignitions is the loss of voltage across the glo plug. Each glo plug has to have the correct amount of current to get hot enough to light the gas. If the current is to low, the plug will glow, but not light the gas. You have to open the grill up and check the wiring, etc for shorts, bare spots in the wires insulation, etc.

The striker button won't light the grill but a match will. It is an older Genesis Silver approximately five years old.

If your piezzo ignitor is still sparking, but not lighting the burners, then you may have one of the following problems. 1) If you have a standard push button piezzo igniter or a rotary style igniter, check for spark. Can you hear or see the spark? It's hard to see the spark in bright daylight. It's easier to view the spark at dusk or dawn. It should spark an "arc" at the burner. If not, adjust it if necessary. 2) The igniter wire may have a short, causing the spark to arc somewhere else along the wire and not at the burner. Replace igniter wire. 3) It's also possible the igniter tip where it sparks has a cracked or broken porcelain portion of the igniter, causing the spark to not arc at the tip where it's supposed to. Replace the igniter piece. 4) Your burner may be clogged or rusted at the point where the ignitor sparks to light it. Clean the burner. 5) If your push button ignitor is not sparking at all, it may be stuck inside from being out in the weather. While pushing it, spray it with WD-40 to unstick it.
Hope this helps. Douglas

My 4 burner downunder gas BBq is only lighting 2 of the auto ignited burners???

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.

Replace ignitor on Thermos BBQ

You have to remove the front panel but It's not too hard. Remove the left and right side trays, about 4-5 screws each. Front panel will then come off readily. Detach the electrode wires from ignitor box first. Wear old clothes and gloves.

Bought a hot shot universal fit ignitor

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.
