Fire Magic won't lite

2 weeks ago I installed a 36" Fire Magic Echelon with a searing station. It is difficult to lit and sometimes wno't lite at all. It seems like it is out of gas, but the side station burns fine. The flame is weak and uneven. It has lit correctly and burned fine several times. Yesterday, however, it would not lite at all.

I am not getting support from the vendor that installed it.

Any ideas?

Have you looked at the BBQ Guys website? They have a ton of videos on Fire Magic and I did see something about there being a "tube" like thing that you can light... right there in front of the grill, where the surface has a nitch cut out of it for easy access. Here's a link to get you started. Good luck!

In order to not void your warranty you should not attempt to fix this yourself right now. Vendor has the legal obligation to be of service. You can even demand a full refund if they do not try to help. better business bureau could be of service in these cases too.

Steve, these thermometers have been plagued with problems and short of a total replacement of the thermometer module, there is not quick fix. Since yours is new and and still under warranty, contact the R H Peterson Company, the manufacturer of Fire Magic Grills (800) 332-3973 and ask for Technical Service. As they are the ones who make the determination on a total replacement of the module or not. Be sure to have the grill's Model Number and Serial Number handy, when you call.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Turn hot water on and it takes a while to heat up and when it does it will sometimes get cold and then come back hot..Back and forth..Started about 2 weeks ago....

Sounds like an issue with your gas valve needing cleaning or your thermal couple. Prob more the gas side. You need to turn your hot water on and watch your heater fire. See if it stays lit or if it fades in and out. Could aslo be the gas valve. The prob is pretty vague. Also look at the age if its more then tens years or near old. You might wanna look at replacing. Just the energy saving will help offset the cost.

Dan, did you check the circuitry and relays to the motor, as was suggested on March 29th? If the motor can't get power it won't work. It seems, that this may be the problem, since you took the motor apart and there were no broken gears and all other electrical devices work. The other resolution was to contact R.H.Peterson Company, the manufacturer for more information, if all else failed.

My remote lid quit working. All lights & ignighters still work. This unit is 2yrs old, but has NEVER been used! Lid doesn't work with remote or stationary up/down switch. don't know how to test if...

Since your grill is a built-in model and hasn't been used in 2 years, I hope the grill has remained covered during that time. If not, I suspect that any inclement weather may be playing a role in this. To test the lid lift motor, you will need to track the wiring from the switch panel to the motor. Making sure all the wires are still connected and have not been damaged by small vermin. Also, I suspect if you check your owners manual, you may find that the motor has either a circuit breaker or a fuse that is designed to protect the motor and may have been tripped or blown. If the grill has remained uncovered, even the switch on the console may have suffered from water damage over the past 2 years.

It all else fails, contact the authorized Fire Magic dealer you purchased the grill from or the manufacturer, the R.H.Peterson Company, Technical Service @ 800-332-3973.

Hope this helps you to start troubleshooting the problem.

Shortly after igniting the infrared burner, and while the burner is still heating up, the gas will explode spontaneously, blowing out the flame.

What you have is partially delayed ignition, This could be caused by a manufacturer's defect or the burner is clogged with debris. To test this theory, when you're preheating the burner, preheat on the lowest flame setting that you have, that will keep the burner lit. After 8 to 10 minutes, gradually turn the flame up to high. If the burner responds as it should, you shouldn't get that delayed ignition problem. If you do get it, the burner is defective and should be replaced.

Hope this helps solve your problem.
