Can't get it to light

I understand where the ignitor is but is there a battery? If so I can get the thing out of it's brace. I have cleaned it and I can't light it manually either. What do you think is wrong with it? I miss my grill.

Thermoheater 210,000 BTU will not run. The ignitor is working, fuel is spraying across ignitor. If fan blade is removed, unit will light? It seems to be getting too much wind from the fan blade, causi

Doug, I'm not sure if I understand completely. Are you saying that the problem existed when you still had clean 1-K Kerosene in the tank? If that is the case, I would first check the spark ignitor to ensure that it is clean and set at the correct gap. Understand that Kerosene which has been standing in the tank since last season will not be as volatile as fresh kerosene and probably should not be used. Diesel fuel, especially Diesel #2, is also not nearly as volatile as it should be. I believe these heaters should only be used with fresh kerosene or #1 fuel oil.

Model # 463240904 ignitor stopped firing even after replacing battery?

First, be sure you have the battery turned the right way. Generally the Positive Tip (+) should be facing up. Yours may be the opposite, so try it both ways. Also, when you remove the battery look inside the holder for signs of corrosion. If there is some, do your best to clean it out with a Q-Tip soaked in WD-40.

If none of the above seems to solve the problem, look for loose wires from the Ignitor button assembly to the Ignitor Elements (Tips) in the grill. Also, the Ignitor Elements at each burner in the grill may be covered with grease, which will prevent them from firing. If you see that, clean them with alcohol.

Those are the basic things that cause a battery operated ignitor to fail.

Hope this helps to solve your problem. Please let me know.

PT450rbi grill Ignitor does not provide a spark. I have changed batteries and checked wire connections. Still no spark.

The ignitor may be covers may be covered with grease or the wire to the ignitor has lost it's ground.
Simply clean the grease of the ignitor with alcohol and a rag. Disconnect the ignitor wire from the igniter and then push it back on the needle like prong. One final thing ... make sure the battery(s) are facing the right direction.

Model FGF326ASD. Gas oven igniter glows but no gas there to light. What controls the gas valve in the oven?

From what I can see on the web, all point to a weak "glow ignitor," some says that the glow ignitor can glow and sometimes can even be drawing the correct current but still not hot enough to ignite the gas. Tho one thing I don't understand is how can a ignitor range in price that much... I can find one online for $16 to $50... local appliance part stores wants $70 - $80 for it... and its not refundable...

Dryer works bu not lighting the furnace.What do u think?

Two things come to mind when this happens. The duct work is totally plugged up or the spark ignitor is out of order.
Check the vent tubing by completely disconnecting it and cleaqn thoroughly clean. I see one once I took apart and filled a 15 gallong trash bag full of lint. The dyer was three years old and had a 10 foot vent tube. 4 feet of tubing is always recomended at the longest length used. If longer it needs to be cleaned evey few months for 100% efficiency
If the tubing is clean turn on the dryer and listen for the click the sopark ignitor makes to light up the burner. If no click is heard the ignitor is bad

Hi, I replaced the right side ignitor module and now the ignitors spark vigorously and the burners light but the ignitors won't spot sparking and sometimes keep sparking several seconds after I turn off...

There are a few things to check for. Make sure the electrode ( the small metal piece that the spark comes off from ) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes and NOT a tooth pick as these can break off and make things worse. The next thing to check for are theignition switches under the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a bad spark module, replace it. Sometimes cleaning can get moisture into the surface switches, try drying them with an hair dryer to see of this will help.

thanks.keep updated and please do accept the solution.

Clicking ignitors

Take a hair dryer and dry the spark switches located on the end of each gas valve.
Sometimes when cleaning they get wet and do the clicking thing.
If that does not correct the problem you will have to replace the bad switch.
