Gas grill ignitors

My gas grill ignitor stopped working so i purchased a new one, but it doesn't work either. is there a way to test the igintor itself, off of the grill to see if it is indeed the ignitor or something else?

    Same problem. Electrode is new, checked the wire for continuity, want to know how to check the ignitor to see if it's creating the spark.

Check the electrode.  That is the end at the burner.  It may be corroded and no longer creating a spark.

I recently moved. When the grill arrived to the new home I had to purchase a new propane tank to replace the old one. The grill will not light. For some reason it isn't getting any gas. Any suggestions on what the problem might be? 
I tried the obvious... tightening the connections, trying to light it manually etc.

Ignitor isnt working

The oven ignitor should have a resistance reading of about 3.2 to 3.6 ohms. If the readings are out of this specification or show open replace the ignitor. measure the resistance of the oven valve. The gas valve should have about 1.5 ohms of resistance. If the gas valve is OK, the control board is suspect. The ignitor needs 120vac to work.

Ignitor keeps clicking on burner

A creda microwave oven doesn't have an ignitor or burner, so I assume you are talking about either a BBQ grill or gas range.

A suggestion: Clean the ignitor tip with a CLEAN and DRY green scouring pad; check that you have gas coming out of the burner.

If you have gas at the burner and the ignitor is clicking (sparking) then it is usually an ignitor alignment problem where the ignitor got bumped out of position.

I have been using the grill for about a year now. All of a sudden the electronic igniter dosen't spark on all control knobs. I checked the battery and replaced it with a new one. It did not change...

First, Bud make sure the battery was installed facing the proper direction. The Positive end (+) should be facing out when installed. If that's not the problem, check the wiring from the ignition module to the each burner ignitor. One may be loose or the grounding wire from the ignitor module to the grill's frame, may have lost contact. Also, look carefully at each ignitor tip at the burners. They may have an accumulation of grease, which needs to cleaned off.

If all that doesn't resolve the problem, you will need to replace the ignitor module. You can purchase one online directly from NEX Grill or from Factory Appliance Parts

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

Igniter turns red but will not fire the burner. Gas is coming out and I've changed the burner with a good burner.

You need to adjust the ignitor so that the flame is closer to the burner. If you try match lighting the burner, does it light? If it does, then the igintor need to be adjusted closer to the burner.

How to test oven igniter


The best way to test the igintor is with an amp meter. Connect a clamp on amp probe to one of wires going to the ignitor (either one is fine) turn the oven on, match the current you get from the amp probe to the rating on the gas valve to see if you have enough current. (typically you need 3.2 amps for most systems).

As ignitors get weak the resistance in them gets higher causing the amp draw to go down.

You can also get 'a feel' for the strength of the ignitor by how bright it glows, when working right, the orange will be bright almost whiteish in color. As it ages and weakens it will be more of a dull orange.

As a rule of thumb, if the ignitor is glowing and the burner will not come on the ignitor is bad.

I hope this helps

Arg7600 oven won't light. Glow plug works. No gas.

This typically indicates the Hot surface ignitor (glow plug) is weak, and needs to be replaced. Even though it glows, it simply doesn't generate the amperage required to open the gas valve. These two compnents work in series, when the igintor becomes to corroded it cannot draw enough current to sufficiently power the magnetic coil in the gas valve. replace the ignitor and let me know when the turkey is ready ! :)
