Push and HOLD down the dial on the HIGH position while pressing the ignition button for at least 10 seconds.  I had the same problem until I just figured it out.  Happy Grilling!

Good answer... but remember (if you have the regular burners on... The Rotisserie will not light.) 1. Cut all knobs off... Then push and hold in Rotisserie button as you turn to high.
2. Press ignition button, until you hear rotisserie ignite. 3. Keep holding in the rotisserie button until the thermostat realizes the gas is on and burning. (IT must get hot enough to keep gas flowing.) Hope that helps, Dave

Could be two things, the first is a bad regulator, easy to replace and not very expensive. The other is a blockage in the burner orifices. For this you have to take the burners out and check inside the burner venturis and then see if you can unscrew the orifices on the valves and clean out any blockage.

How do I light the rotisserie infrared burner?


Nice unit. I was looking at it last night in Home Depot.

http://www.weber.com/grills/series/summit/summit-s-470

Should spark ignite like the burners surely? Perhaps the igniter post needs adjusting, or a lead has become disconnected?

Where is the ignite button located


Hi phillzy21
If the main grilling burners don't ignite, try lighting them several times using the snap ignition. If that doesn't work, try using a match. In humid and windy conditions, sometimes the snap ignitions do not work properly. Make sure that the hood is fully open. Also, ensure that your gas is turned on and that the valve is fully open. Next, take out both the heat distribution plates and cooking grate. Turn the grill backwards, and hit the snap igniter a few times and look for a spark. If you see a spark, the igniter is working properly.

I was just wondering my rotisiree burner dosent work .. please help asap! thanks


If it is not igniting and hold the flame and getting red, it could be that the burner is dirty and clogged or the thermocouple that keeps the burner lit has failed.Please keep in mind, when lighting an infrared burner, you must hold the burner control knob in for several minutes. At least until all the ceramic plaques are glowing brightly. if the igniter won't light it, try match lighting it, while you hold the burner control knob in.

Most gill manufacturers recommend lighting and burning the infrared rotisserie burner on a regular basis, whether you use it or not,. Doing this helps to keep the burner clean.

I hope this has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Have a home depot ducane 5 burner. just replaced burner tubes. have never used the rotisserie burner on it before. it lights but won't stay lite after releasing knob...any suggestions? Thanks


Infrared burners requite that the gas control knob be held in for 2 minutes or so, to allow the thermocouple on the infrared burner to heat up completely. If it's windy were you are, the wind can blow the burner out, while trying to light it. That's why it has a thermocouple on it, to stop the gas if the burner goes out. All cooking on the rotisserie is doon with the lid/hood closed, at temperatures around 250 degrees F. Once the infrared burner turns bright red, release the control knob.

Hope this helped you to get it lit. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Can not get rotisserie burner to light


There may be several reasons the rotisserie burner will not light. First, the orifice to the burner itself may be clogged or partially clogged preventing gas flow. There may be a problem with the spark generator, the wire running from the spark generator to the electrode, or the electrode itself. The first thing to check is the gas flow. When you turn on the valve for the rotisserie burner you should hear and smell the gas if it is flowing. Light the rotisserie burner with a manual lighter, if it lights manually, then the gas if flowing.
The seconc thing to look for is a spark from the electrode when you turn or push, depending on the type of spark generator you have. If there is no spark, the it is most likely an ignition system problem. If you have a battery operated spark generator, replace the battery and try again. If the spark generator is a piezo, you have to repalce the spark generator. If you install a new battery, or replace the piezo spark generator, and there is still no spark, then you have to get to the wire and the electrode. Look for bare spots in the wire insulation that would cause a short. Check the electrode for a cracked or broken insualtor. In either case, the wire and/or the electrode will need to be replaced.

I have a stainless steel Ducane BBQ with five burners plus side burner and a rottisserie burner , which does not work. It is approx 5 years old and I have never used the rottisserie till last week. I have...


Since you've never used it. It may simply be a case that the infrared rotisserie burner is dirty and clogged with grease from cooking on the main burners. In addition, the Thermocouple and the igniter for that burner may also have a grease build up. In which case it won't allow the burner to light.

The electronic igniter that lights the main burners, also ignites the the rotisserie burner. Are you geting the click noise on the main burner igniters? If not, the battery in the igniter button needs to be replaced. Be sure to take note of the way the old battery is facing, when you unscrew the igniter cap. Because, that's the way the new battery should face.

Also, try match lighting the rotisserie burner. To do this, turn the Rotisserie Burner's Control Knob to the ON position and push it in, as you touch the lit match to the burner. If the burner lights continue to hold the burner knob in for a couple of minutes. This allows the Thermocouple and the ceramic plaques to heat up completely. Then slowly release the burner knob and the burner should remain lit.

If it doesn't stay lit, clean the burner and the Thermocouple ,in the manner that is described in your Owner's Manual.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Rotisserie infra red value would come on,it comes on when I hold it in...


I'm assuming, that after you release the burner knob, the infrared burner goes out. You need to hold the knob in until the infrared burner gets glowing hot. If it doesn't remain lit after doing that, the thermocouple that keeps the burner lit, either needs cleaning due to a grease build up or replacing the thermocouple entirely. To clean it, alcohol and a cotton ball works well.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

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.
