Check the crossover tube on the burnners they are usally in the back. If it is a few years old they rot and rust away. If it has tube type burnres slide them out and hold them over a trash can and shake the ash out of the. The amount will suprise you. I would do them all at the first of each grill season. brush the hole on the side of tube to make sure they are all open. replace the tube the cross over tubes help the gas and flame cross over and they lay across the tubes repair or replace if defective. good luck

How do I get burners to ignite without using matches? (electrodes/sparkers work fine)


Gap distance and fuel pressure are important, also make sure the area is clean by the ignitors

I have a Jenn air dual fuel. The 5 burners on the top will not light without a match. There is no click sound.


If they won;t light on there own after cleaning then the spark module for the burners may be faulty

Stove top gas spark ignitor


The gap between the burner and the spark tip may be obstructed. When I clean mine none of them work until they all dry completely.

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.

Electronic ignition doesn't work anymore. How do I manually light this?


Before you go to match lighting, have you changed the battery in the ignitor button? If you haven't, I'd start there first. Unscrew the ignitor cap and the battery's Positive Tip (+) will be facing you. Be sure to install the new battery in the same direction.While the battery is out, check for any corrosion that may be present in the battery holder. A Q-Tip & WD40 work well to clean out any corrosion.

To match light the burners ... use a long stick match (also called a hearth match) and carefully guide the match between the grates and under the flame tamers, as close to each burner as possible. Of course, the match should be lit prior to doing this. Turn each burner on individually, as you place the lighted match next to it. Once the burner lights, turn it down to low and move to the next burner and so on, until all the burners you want to use are lit. Then set the flame heights where you want them.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

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.

Self lighting burners won't light without matches


You will need to remove one of the burners you will see three small pin holes you can use a small safety pin or small paper clip and clean these hole free of carbon build up, also around the burner is the port that the flames comes from, make sure all the port is free of any carbon build up, replace the burner and then give it a try.

We have a thermador 5 burner gas range top and the pilot light seems to have gone out. The burners don't go on but we smell gas. How do we re-light it?


Most gas range tops no longer have pilot lights but use an electronic ignition (sparker) to light the burner. Normally when you turn the burner on you should here a snapping or sparking sound, at which point the burner should ignite. Here is a link to the user manual for 36" - 5 burner Thermador rangetop...maybe this will help: http://dl.owneriq.net/a/ac64ae7b-1ed3-44a3-9235-e4dbd8fe4628.pdf

By the way, in the short term you could always use a match to light the burner. JUST BE VERY CAREFUL THE YOU HAVE THE MATCH LIT AND OVER THE DESIRED BURNER BEFORE YOU TURN KNOB TO START THE BURNER!!!!

Jenn-Air JGC8536 Gas Cooktop ignitor replacement


One burner doesn't consistently light. Igniter sparks but not the same as the other - "good" burners spark at top of igniter and moves around to light, "bad" burner sparks toward the bottom and doesn't move much. I can use the burner by lighting with a match and it works fine. Have tried cleaning with a toothbrush without much success
