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?
(my grill is a charmglow three burner grill)

    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.
Thanks,
K

Gas Is On, Press Ignitor and charcoal doesn't ignite


Make sure the ignitor is sparking. sometimes they fail or spark in the wrong place. If no gas is flowing, try shutting off the tank and waiting about 15 seconds, then open the tank back up. Some models have a flow restrictor that shuts off the gas, you will hear a slight ping or click as this resets.

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 http://www.nexgrill.net/ or from Factory Appliance Parts

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

I have a KBNU367TSS and I am having problems with 3 of the 4 ignitors. Two of them will not work at all and one of them gets red but not hot enough to ignite the gas. The rear burner ignitor works fine....


One problem with glo plug ignitions is the loss of voltage across the glo plug. Each glo plug has to have the correct amount of current to get hot enough to light the gas. If the current is to low, the plug will glow, but not light the gas. You have to open the grill up and check the wiring, etc for shorts, bare spots in the wires insulation, etc.

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.

I installed a new 7509 ignitor on my 13 year old weber genesis gas grill and the gas does not ignite when pushing the ignitor button. I installed the ignitor with the box opening on the bottom and checked...


If the spark you see is in the ignitor box and not at the burner(s), then there's a wire loose somewhere or the ignitor is not grounded properly. Also check to see if the ignitor tips in the grill next to burner(s) are covered with grease. If so, clean them with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol. Check each ignitor wire at each ignitor , make sure they are secure,

Does conversion from LP gs to Natural gas on Ducane 30400040 (essentially makes it a model 30400041) require changing the inlet orofice on the IR burner ? I purchased conversion kit that included all new...


Did the conversion kit give you an LP orifice for every new gas valve? LP gas orifices have smaller holes than Nat gas orifices. Can you smell gas when you turn on the IR burner by itself? Some burners styles have an air adjustment on the end that fits over the orifice. Make sure it's getting enough air. Also make sure your ignitor sparker is positioned where the spark can ark against the top of the burner. Ducane grills have rotary ignitors, so turn it (with gas off) and see if you can actually see where it's sparking. If it's not sparking in the right place, it will be difficult to light.

My Charbroil grill igniter won't work. Have to


I';m sure everyone thinks they are giving good advice, but READ THE SYMPTOMS. The guy says his ignitor doesn't "click" anymore. And most of you tell him he needs a new gas regulator. Fix his problem, don't create new ones. He needs his ignitor fixed. Maybe just a new battery? Or maybe the whole ignitor unit But certainly not a new regulator, etc, etc.
