Many grills just use a standard 9 volt battery. Trace the wire from the bottom of the igniter button you push. One of the wires from this button also attaches to the battery compartment. Simply remove the battery and replace. It's usually under the shelf near the igniter button.

How do I replace ignitor switch in thermos gas grill, if this is what is what I saw?

If that white is ceramic, I think it is the actual ignitor, not the switch.

Ignitor doesn't click, spark or light gas

When my 2-year-old grill quit supplying a spark to light either the grill or the side burner, I removed the battery/start button and noticed droplets of water inside.
So I removed the ignitor unit. When I shook it, I could hear water sloshing inside, probably because I'm too lazy to put the cover on the grill after using it.
The part was going to be about $40 with shipping.
I shook out all the water I could, but still no spark.
Remembering a tip I'd heard about wet cell phones, I sealed the ignitor unit in a bag of dry white rice and left it on the grill in the Florida sun for a couple of days. Lots of condensation showed up on the plastic bag.
Shocking discovery: after two days in the plastic bag, I shook out residual rice, replaced the battery and button, pushed it, and the sparks tingled my fingers pretty well! Lots of volts!
Also works fine in the grill again. Probably works on all brands of grill ignitors...

Ignitor issue. Changed battery, all wires seem to be connected. It was left outside this winter. How much to replace ignitor module?

The ignitor module sell for $16.95 at the following website

But before you order one, check the battery holder for corrosion and clean it with WD40 and a Q Tip.
Also, make sure you installed the new batter properly. The Positive (+) end should be facing you, when you insert it into the holder. Check all the spark ignitors at each burner to make sure they are clean and grease free. Alcohol and a cotton ball works well to clean them.

Hope this helps you.

My ignitor will not start, replaced the battery and not even a clicking sound will work...what is wrong

First, make sure the battery your put in is turned in the right direction. In most cases the + in of the battery should be facing out. Also, be sure the replacement battery is in fact, good.

If that doesn't solve the problem, check the wiring behind the ignitor module. The ground wire may be off or loose. In fact check all the wires to make sure they are secure.

If the gill has been out in the weather, uncovered for a while, the whole ignitor module may have to be replaced.

Hope this helps you resolve the problem.

How do i remove the battery on my char broil ignitor? thanks

This is kind of tough to explain without pictures, but here goes:

You may be able to just look on the underside of the ignitor and replace it or them without removal.

If not, behind the ignitor, on the other side of the panel it is mounted on, there is a round threaded part that holds the ignitor in place. You can (hopefully) use your fingers and just lefty-loosy that part off, releasing the ignitor. It will come out the front side of the plate it's mounted to easily, and you will see where the battery is located. Replace, and then just screw that threaded part back on tightly.

Hope this helps.

The electronic ignition on my grill no longer sparks to ignite the gas. I replaced the battery and cleaned the contact points but there was not any improvement. Can the entire assembly be replaced?

Yes you can replace the entire assembly.
However you can try adjusting the spark gap to see if this will resolve the issue.
Heat will often expand the spark gap thus rendering a spark impossible.
Small adjustments and be careful not to break the ceramic insulator.

Many gas grills use a static ignitor that does not require a battery.
Big red button you push that causes a snapping noise. This makes a spark and lights the gas. These can last quite a long time and inexpensive too.

Good luck!

Replacing ignitor battery

Has it got a battery or has it got a Pitzo crystal? They eventually wear out, you may need to replace the ignitor button unit.

Ignitor not working is there a battery that needs

The electronic ignitor on our Charmglow SS Gas Grill (Model 810-6320-B from Home Depot) was not generating a spark. The battery beneath the ignitor button (cap) had to be replaced. At first, still no spark. Next I used a Dremel hobby drill with a small wire brush head to clean the negative contact within the battery chamber. Also brushed the spring surfaces (battery positive circuit), ensuring good contact when battery inserted & ignitor button re-installed.
Checked wire contacts & gap of electrode tip.
Ignitor is working again!

Gas grill ignitors

Check the electrode.  That is the end at the burner.  It may be corroded and no longer creating a spark.
