I have this grill and can not use it because evidently we were shorted the "vent" tent and the drippings from the food go directly onto the burner and clog the burner. So, anyone have any suggestions???

The carryover bracket in the back is the problem. You need to remove it and clear any blockages and try again or just buy a new one. I have the same problem at this time and am trying to find out how to remove the bracket.

The glow stick lights up; approx30 seconds later, you can hear and smell the gas turn on, but the flame does not start


Depending on the specific unit you have the hot surface igniter (glow stick) may be only for lighting the pilot, which then ignite the main burners. The flame has to be proved before the gas valve opens for the main burners. This is done by the flame rod, which could be faulty in your case. The proximity of the igniter could also prevent ignition. Check that the flame rod is clean and secure. Note. be very careful when servicing gas appliances, and never ever use lighters, matches or any other flame source to light them except for the ignition system supplied by the appliance. These appliances are designed and built with safety devices to prevent ignition when it senses a fault or malfunction. This is all for safety. Do not bypass safety devices, it can kill. Call a qualified tech.

Landmann 12376 ignition


Firstly, check the distance between ignite and burner, the spark must contact with the hole of burner.
secondly, turn on the control at maximum level then keep and push control knob try to Push-button Piezo ignition several times.
Finally, If you do not find out any trouble with gas supply, connection and assembly, do the same with step 2 however, Instead of push the button use the paper or wood with flame on to ignite for side burner for the first times, after that keep it running for few minute to heat burner, then turn off then use Push-button Piezo ignition to ignite.

With my experience it can work 100% after you heat the burner, if not call me. ^^

Electronic ignition doesn't work anymore. How do I manually light this?


Before you go to match lighting, have you changed the battery in the ignitor button? If you haven't, I'd start there first. Unscrew the ignitor cap and the battery's Positive Tip (+) will be facing you. Be sure to install the new battery in the same direction.While the battery is out, check for any corrosion that may be present in the battery holder. A Q-Tip & WD40 work well to clean out any corrosion.

To match light the burners ... use a long stick match (also called a hearth match) and carefully guide the match between the grates and under the flame tamers, as close to each burner as possible. Of course, the match should be lit prior to doing this. Turn each burner on individually, as you place the lighted match next to it. Once the burner lights, turn it down to low and move to the next burner and so on, until all the burners you want to use are lit. Then set the flame heights where you want them.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

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.

Burners not igniting


If you are getting a spark, but no gas ignition, I am guessing that the gas is not reaching the ignitor. Burners have many holes that allow that create the flame pattern. There are usually one or two holes right next to the ignitor. If the holes are clogged or mis-alligned, there will not be any ignition. On sealed burner ranges, lift out the burner cap, clean it, and make sure it is alligned properly. On open burner ranges, inspect the holes near the ingnitor and use a small wire to clean them. Sometimes you have to remove the burner to get a good cleaning.

Lighting the pilot light


The steps involved can vary slightly depending on your furnace model and pilot valve type, so if possible try and find the instructions inside the furnace door cover or in the instruction manual. This is for a gas fired furnace, but applies to any gas-fueled appliance including water heater. Two of the most common types of pilot valve body assemblies either have a red reset button and a gas valve or no reset button and a valve knob that can be depressed. But whichever type you've got, if you have an older model furnace with a standing pilot (flame is lit all the time) then this is the basic procedure.
  • Turn you thermostat to 80 degrees or to a setting that will demand heat. Make sure the thermostat is in "Heat" mode.
  • Go to the furnace and find the pilot valve. The pilot valve body is a box shaped device into which the main gas line will run and is located near the gas burners. It will usually have a gas **** or valve knob that reads "On, "Pilot" and "Off." Locate this gas **** or knob.
  • Turn the knob or gas **** to the "Off" position and wait about 3 minutes for any residual gas to clear away.
  • Find the pilot. It's located near the gas burner tube assembly in the furnace.
  • Get your match or lighter ready. Sometimes the pilot is hard to reach. If possible, try and use a long fireplace match when you light it. If you don't have a fireplace match then a butane BBQ grill lighter works well too. If you don't have that, then you can fasten a match to the end of a stick when you light the pilot
  • If you have a pilot with a red Reset button, turn the gas valve from "Off," to "Pilot."
  • If you have a pilot with no red button, turn the knob from "Off" to "Pilot."
  • Place the lit match or ignited lighter tip at the pilot and depress and hold the button or depress the knob as appropriate. Depress the button or knob for about 30 seconds. This maintains gas flow to the pilot until the thermocouple gets hot enough to open the main gas valve.
  • Once the pilot stays lit, slowly release the button or knob and turn the gas **** or knob from the "Pilot" position to the "On" position. This will ignite the burners and keep the flow of gas supplied as required for the burners as called for by the thermostat.
  • If the burners fail to ignite then it may be because the thermocouple did not get hot enough to open the gas valve. Wait a few minutes and then repeat the above procedure. This time hold the red reset button or depress the knob for about 45-60 seconds.
  • Once the main furnace burners ignite, adjust the thermostat to the desired setting.
  • If you've followed the previous steps on lighting the pilot and it still does not light after, or will not stay lit, then you probably have a problem with the thermocouple or an adjustment needs to be made to the pilot. You'll need a furnace service technician to replace or repair these parts. You may find that the pilot lights, but it is an anemic looking flame. That's a different problem we'll look at in the next section.
  • If the pilot lights but the flame is a weak yellow flame, it will not get hot enough to heat the thermocouple to its set point allowing the gas valve to open.
    A natural gas flame should be a bright blue with the tip of the flame having just a tinge of yellow. A propane flame should have a bluish green flame with a tinge of yellow at the tip. The flame should be strong enough to hit the thermocouple tip about 1/2 inch from the tip end. If the flame is weak or shaky looking, check to see that a breeze or draft is not blowing on it. Adjusting the Flame
    There is usually a small screw on the pilot valve body that will adjust the flame. You may have to refer to the manufacturer's instructions to find the screw. Turn the screw as needed to adjust the flame throw. Yellow Flame
    A yellow flame is caused by lack of air and incomplete combustion. It can be caused by a dirty pilot tube tip. Split Flame
    This is caused by dirt in the pilot tube. Take a needle or small nail and gently clean the tube. Flickering or Wavering Flame
    A flame that flickers is usually caused by a draft.
