Infared burners ignitor won't work


Mike, have you replaced the battery in the igniter button ye? That's the first place to start troubleshooting. Be sure you install the new battery facing the same direction as the old battery. Also, check the interior contacts of the battery holder for corrosion. If you find any, use a Q-Tip sprayed with a little WD40 to clean it.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, trace the igniter wire from the igniter button to the spark igniter at the burner for damaged wire or a loose connection.

And finally, try match lighting the infrared burners to make sure that they are getting an adequate flow of gas.

Hope this helped you t troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Kenmore quantum series gas grill: where do I put the match to light it?


Using the wire match holder that came with the grill. Place the match in the holder, light the match and place it next to one of the burners. Turn the burner ON just enough for the gas to rise and the match will light the burner. Quickly remove the match and continue lighting the remaining burners you want to use.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Hotpoint gas range that has electric ignition for the oven. However, I don't have electric at my cabin. Is there a conversion kit for a straight pilot ignition available? The model number is...


Most gas ranges with electronic ignition aren't equipped to have a straight pilot ignition.
I'm don't even think they make conversion kit because of the routing of the gas tubing for the pilot source.

Usually you have to turn the gas knob way over to get the "click-click-click" of the igniter.
Its just as easy to turn on the gas and light with a match...or a long butane lighter.
Even a "striker" used in welding will provide a source of ignition.
A last ditch effort would be to get a replacement gas grill igniter...all ya gotta do is place the bottom of igniter on metal surface and press red button. (kinda works like a spark plug) and no A/C needed.

Hope this helps some.

Natural gas grill won't light with match. Gas side pilot will light but not main grill. Help- we have a lot of company.


Check the valve and jet. The chances are that the jet is clogged. Depending upon where you have stored the unit, the jet may be clogged by a spider that was attracted to the odor of the natural gas.
Should be an easy fix.
Let me know if you have any problems or questions. Thanks.

We just used the grill the other night went out to cook tonight will not ignite ....I can hear the gas so that is not it ...any suggestions? I am newby at all this but have been doing fine .....


Are you saying the ignitor won't light the burner(s), but you can hear gas going thru the burners?
If that's the case, try match lighting the burners. That's a good way to find out if you are really getting enough gas for combustion.

If after match lighting it, you find that burner flames remain low, even when they're turned to High. Here's what you need to do:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion,
slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open, try lighting the burner farthest away from the tank first and turn
it to High. Did the burner light and the flame height looks normal? If so, light the remaining
burner(s) the same way. Do all the flame heights look normal? If so, you solved the problem.

Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Pleas let me know and Happy Grilling, Newby!!

Gas grill wont lite manuallly


Do you mean it won't match light or the ignitor won't spark and light the burners? Or both?

If it won't match light or the ignitor sparks, but the burners don't light, that means you're not getting gas to the burners.

Check to the tank valve and make sure it's turned ON. Also, make sure that there's gas in the tank.
If both of those check out as OK, turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and the flame height looks correct? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. Now, are they all lit and the flames heights look correct? If so, you solve the problem. Just remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if the burners failed to light. Remove and clean all the burners, as well as the venturi valve on the open of each burner. Spiders like to build nest in the venturi valves.

if cleaning the burners did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find it in any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories, for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please be kind enough to let me know. Thanks and Happy grilling!!

My model is KFGR361SSS. The right burner cllicks when i try to light it, but it won't ignite


You might want to check to make sure that the gas is reaching the burner. If you can light with a match, then your igniter circuit is not aligned properly. If there is no gas getting to the burner, follow the gas line back until you find where it is blocked. OR it could be the switch is bad and not allowing gas to that burner.

The automatic ignition on my gas grill is not functioning. What's the alternative lighting method. A match?


YES, YOU CAN DO A MATCH.
BEFORE YOU LIGHT IT WITH A MATCH, REMOVE THE TOP GRILL TO
EXPOSE THE BURNER BELOW IT.
THIS WAY THE MATCH WHEN LIT AND THROWN IN WILL NOT GET STUCK IN THE
GRILL AREA WHILE THE GAS IS ON. THEN MORE GAS WILL BE IN THERE
BEFORE YOU GET ANOTHER MATCH LIT TO THROW IN. NEXT THING
YOU KNOW, THE MATCH DROPS DOWN IN BETWEEN THE GRILL AND
FINALLY MAKES THE BURNER AREA AND GOES 'BOOM'!
REMOVING THE TOP GRILL MAKES IT EASY TO TOSS THE MATCH
DOWN BY THE BURNER AFTER A FEW SECONDS WITHOUT A 'BOOM'.
TO FIX YOUR ELECTRONIC START BUTTON ON MOST UNITS, RE-POSITION
THE ARC UNIT IN THE BURNER AREA, TO BE CLOSER TO THE METAL IT ARCS TO.
IT IS MOST LIKELY VIBRATED AWAY FROM IT TO FAR AND THE ARC WILL NOT REACH
METAL OR GROUND TO MAKE AN ARC TO LIGHT THE GAS.

I am scared to death of gas grills -- nearly burned my hair and eyebrows off years ago -- husband always lights it -- he's out of town -- how do I light a Weber gas grill?


Be sure your outdoors in the open. Be sure that the cover is off. Use a large match stick (fire place)or a butane grill lighter to burn the gas. Place the lite match/lighter to the burner head and open the gas bottle. After 6 seconds, If the burner head does not light shut the gas bottle off. Try again till it lights.
