Help. Side burner Wire


There is a fitting on the side burner assembly, near the gas tube. The wire is used to ignite the side gas burner. Be sure to zip tie excess wire out of the way of the burner and excessive heat.

Landmann 12376 ignition


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. ^^

Burners go out


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?

I have a 3 burner CaptnCook gas grill. The middle burner has a single flame when I try to light but does not light the whole burner row, just right at the front only. The right and left will not light at...


The problem lies with the grill's regulator and how the gas tank valve was opened.

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 valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Hello My side burner is leaking gas. I can hear the gas flowing even thought the knob is in the off position. But it doesn't click like all the other burners. Eddie


If the gas you hear is coming from the burner, rather than the side burner gas supply hos, the control knob may be stuck in the "IN" position. Turn the gas tank OFF, before attempting any repairs and disconnect the hose from the tank.

Now that there is no pressure on the side burner control knob, try using it as you normally would. What you're looking for is full function of the knob. Push it it and turn it to the light position. Does the knob pop back out when you release it? If it does, that's a good sign. If memory service me correctly, the gas supply line to the side burner as a quick connect on the hose to connect it to the burner. if so, disconnect and reconnect it to the burner. Does the quick connect slide back into place and connect properly? If not, that is what's leaking. But, to make sure, there needs to be gas going to the grill. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, test the side burner hose connection and the hose (squirrels like to chew on the hose) by brushing on a soap & water solution to check for leaks. If you see bubbles that grow in size, that's a leak. Turn the gas tank back OFF. The side burner hose will need to be replaced.

If there were no leaks on the connection, check the burner knob for operation. Does it operate like it should with no smell of leaking gas? If not, the control knob valve will need to be replaced.

The parts you may need can be purchased from Ducane Customer Service 1-800-382-2637.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Brinkmann Pro Series 2545 Assembly - The side burner valve nozzle does not fit firnly into the burner venturi. The venturi (pipe) is about 1 inch too short!


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.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I own a "Q"120. There is very little gas running


"The thing on the side that says start and off is really loose" are you referring to the ignitor button? Please advise.

As far as the low gas pressure is concerned ... You may simply be running out of gas in the grill tank or if you're sure you have plenty of gas in the tank, the grill's regulator may simply be locked up. However, there is a way to solve the problem, without taking it somewhere.

First, turn the grill tank valve OFF, by turning the knob clockwise, until it stops. Disconnect the grill hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Then, reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light a grill burner and turn the flame to the highest setting. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light any of the remaining burners the same way. If all the flame heights have returned to normal, you've solved the problem.

If the above didn't solve the gas pressure problem, the grill's burners, venturi valves and/or burner orifices may need to be cleaned. In addition, the grill's hose/regulator assembly may need to be replaced. This can be purchased from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories.

Has far some place where you can take it for repair is concerned ... not knowing what area you live in, makes it impossible to recommend a repair place, in the event that there is one.

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

I have a stainless steel Kenmore propane grill, model 119.16311800. It has four burners and a side burner on the left. It is two years old and has performed perfectly for two years. I am now having...


With all the you described, your best bet is to replace the grill hose/regulator assembly. It's not expensive and it's not difficult to do. You can find the hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills. The assembly is universal, but take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

As far as replacing the burners are concerned, that's not difficult either. And you may be able to find the replacement burners at www.sureheat.com , as they made the Kenmore grills for Sears. And yes, the scenario you gave for removing the burners is correct.

Hope this helped you and you will be kind enough to give my response to you, a positive rating.

Happy Grilling!

I need the assembly instructions for a Four Seasons Gas Grill


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.
