I purchased this heater second hand - I have fitted a brand new regulator and gas hose - gas is flowing as far as the burner assembly but I cant hear or smell gas flowing to the pilot or the main burner. Is there a section of pipe between the gas hose and the burner that could be missing? Does anyone have a diagram of all the parts - exploded view?
Firstly, check the distance between ignite and burner, the spark must contact with the hole of burner.
secondly, turn on the control at maximum level then keep and push control knob try to Push-button Piezo ignition several times.
Finally, If you do not find out any trouble with gas supply, connection and assembly, do the same with step 2 however, Instead of push the button use the paper or wood with flame on to ignite for side burner for the first times, after that keep it running for few minute to heat burner, then turn off then use Push-button Piezo ignition to ignite.
With my experience it can work 100% after you heat the burner, if not call me. ^^
It is most likely something in the tube under the burners. Remove the burners and blow the tubes out or use something flexible that will fit into the tubes. I found dirt dabber bees in mine one time. Other possibilities, would be the obvious, is there gas in the tank?
You're getting gas to the burners, just not enough to ignite the burners.
To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:
1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.
If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's
Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or
hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it,
turn the tank.
I hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.
When you attached the side burner assembly to the grill frame, did you pull it forward before tightening the 4 bolts that hold it in place? If not this could account for part of the problem. The other would be how you routed the gas line hose from the 'Y' connector, to the side burner connection. If routed differently than what the assembly instructions indicate, you would come up short on the length.
In any event, your model grill has been discontinued by Brinkmann, but the warranty and some parts are still supported by the manufacturer. I'm assuming you just purchased this grill and are in the process of assembling it according to the Owners Manual. So, if you continue to have a problem contact Brinkmann's Customer Support Hotline 800-527-0717.
I purchased this grill and assembled it yesterday. I noted the area that is providing confusion as it is wrong. Please follow the following instructions. It is quite simple when you have a background in electrical and electronics engineering. These directions should translate my knowledge into step by step instructions for all. 1. Attach the two thinner wires with two terminals on each wire, from the front of the grill head to the larger (Input or Control) terminals on the igniter assembly. These two wires are from the push to turn micro switches on each of the burner control knobs on the grill head. Attach the two smaller terminals on these thinner wires to the micro switch on the side burner control connected as part of the regulator and hose assembly.
2. Attach the three thicker wires from the front of the grill head to three of the six smaller (output) terminals on the igniter assembly. These wires go to the igniters themselves. 3. Connect the two thicker wires from the rear of the grill head to two of the six output terminals on the igniter assembly. The small wire is for the igniter on the bottom infrared burner and the larger, thermally insulated wire, connects to the igniter on the rear infrared burner. 4. Connect the lead from the side burner to the remaining small output terminal on the igniter assembly. 5. Mount the igniter to the front of the right side shelf by removing the battery cover and hexagonal nut. Insert the shaft through the hole in the front of the right side shelf and secure with the hexagonal nut.Replace the battery cap.Do not install the battery at this time. 6.Mount the side burner control by inserting the long end of the control into the side burner assembly. Attach the control to the front of the right side shelf with the two screws held in the front of the control assembly. NOTE: You must remove the screws from the control assembly and insert them through the Off/On bezel and front panel of the right side shelf before screwing them back into the control assembly. Install the control knob for the right side shelf.Verify that the connections to the side burner control micro switch made in step 1 are still intact. 7.Insert the battery into the igniter assembly by removing the batter cap and inserting the AA size battery with the positive (pointed) end out. Replace the battery cap. 8.Test the igniter assembly prior to installing the gas tank and installing the “Flame Tamers” and grates by pushing in on each burner control knob in turn. Listen for a popping sound and look for sparks at each burner. I hope this helps. Ed Roberts President E. F. Roberts & Associates www.efrobertsassoc.com
sounds like a bad switch in the knob, turn on the defective side, turn on the one that works and keep the clicking going then turn on the defective burner while "other" is clicking if this lights then it means you have a bad switch or loose connections
