Water has gotten on the inside of the igniter cause it's not sealed inside the battery compartment at the negative terminal. If it's humming, getting all the water out should fix it. But it's still possible it may not.

The spark works by using a ground wire or the ignitor touching the grill cabnet. You might net to cleam the ignitor and also check the wire to the ignitor. The screw that holds the ground may be loose.

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.

How To Fix Grill Igniter No Longer Working


<ol> <li>If you have a battery type igniter, first try replacing the batteries.</li> <li>What you need to find out is if you are getting a spark in the igniter unit. The igniter is going to be near one (or several) of the burner(s).</li> <li>Some grills have independent ignition and some have a single igniter.</li> <li>If you have independent ignition and none of the burners will light then you have a faulty button or the wiring is bad. You should get these parts replaced.</li> <li>If you have independent ignition and one of the burners will not light or you have a single igniter and none of them will light you probably have something clogging that igniter.</li> <li>Pull off the cooking grates and barrier to get down to the burner.</li> <li>Locate the affected igniter and push the button. You should see a spark.</li> <li>If the igniter is clogged, carefully clean it out and test it again.</li> <li>If there is nothing clogging the igniter then you need to inspect the wiring.

Igniters stop working. replaced once before. need new igniter.


The igniter is warrantied by the manufacturer for 3 years. And now you're on your second one. I was just wondering, have you changed the battery in the igniter button? If so, was it installed facing the same direction as the one you replaced? Was there any corrosion on the battery holder contacts? If so, a Q-Tip & WD40 does well cleaning it off. Also, the ground wire from the ignition module may be loose and is not making contact with the grill's frame. When that happens, the spark ignitors won't spark.

I hope these few things, that have been pointed out, will save you the trouble of having to replace another ignition module.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Ducane Affinity 4400 grill. The ignitor has worked fine for the first couple of years and just recently stopped working. I replaced the battery and this corrected the problem for a few weeks, but...


Several things come to mind, that may be contributing to the problem.

1. Corroded contacts in the battery holder. Remove the battery and inspect for corrosion. Use a
Q-Tip & WD40 to clean the contacts.
2. A loose or corroded connection of the ground wire from the ignition module to the grill's frame.
Trace and inspect the ground wire.
3. Loose or damaged wires to each burner's spark igniter. Remove the grill grates and the flame
tamers to inspect each spark igniter.

If none of the above solves the problem, replacing the ignition module is the next step. You can purchase one from Ducane http://www.ducane.com/contact/
or from http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/gasgrillparts/

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

Hi, Kirk. The positive end of the battery should face you, when you install it. Before you rush out to buy a new ignition module, check all the wiring from the module to to each spark ignite. You want to make sure that all wiring is in intact, that the ground wire for the module is attached to the grill frame and that the spark igniters are clean & free of grease.

If you find you need to replace the igniter module, you can find it at the following link.

Hope this helps you. Don't forget you can match light the burners if necessary, until the igniter module is replaced. Happy Grilling!!

Over the winter the igniter stopped working. I installed a new battery but with no effect. What else should I do? Weber Model EP320 or 310.


First, make sure the battery you replaced is facing the right direction. Generally the Positive (+) end should be facing you. Also, check for corrosion in the battery holder. If you see any, WD40 and a Q-Tip works well to clean it. Also check the peizo ignitor tip(s) (Where the spark is to light the burner(s) ) for grease buildup. A cotton ball and alcohol will clean those. Check the wiring from the ignitor module to each spark igniter to make sure it is secure. If not tighten it.

All of the above should help you troubleshoot and hopefully solve the problem.

Need to manually light the grill as the starter is not working


Hello,
Is the igniter sparking? Some are battery powered-check the battery or replace it. If you have a standard push button piezzo igniter or a rotary style2_bing.gif igniter, check for spark. Can you hear or see the spark? It's hard to see the spark in bright daylight. It's easier to view the spark at dusk or dawn. It should spark an "arc" at the burner. If not, adjust it if necessary. The igniter wire may have a short, causing the spark to arc somewhere else along the wire and not at the burner. Replace igniter wire. It's also possible the igniter tip where it sparks has a cracked or broken porcelain portion of the igniter, causing the spark to not arc at the tip where it's supposed to. Replace the igniter piece.

Hope this helps! Douglas

My Perfect Flame E3520-NG won't light and I can't find support or a manual for it anywhere. I replaced the battery but still get no sparks.


There are a few things you can check.

If the igniter makes the noise like it is trying to spark then you may have a short in the igniter wire or a crack in the electrode. Also, the gap between the electrode and the igniter box may need to be adjusted to get a stronger spark.

If the ignitor doesn't make noise, it could be faulty and need to be replaced. Battery igniters are very prone to wearing out prematurely. Sometimes they can be replaced with a more reliable piezo igniter.
