SOURCE: gas grill ignitors

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

SOURCE: burner replacement on Ducane 30400040

Remove the 2 grill wire cooking racks by lifting them out of the top of the grill, next lift out to remove the 3 heat deflector panels which exposes the 3 burner tubes. Remove the 4 screws located on the outside flanks (2 on each side) of the 5-knob control panel assembly - then gently slide the knob control assembly outward and away from the grill just about an inch or two. You can now remove the old burner tubes and replace them with the new units. Then simply slide the control assembly back into the grill frame and replace/tighten the 4 screws. Voila`

SOURCE: I need to know how to remove the stainless steel burners and replace them.

Call Weber to receive free warrenty burners. Have model and serial number found inside one of the doors on your grill. I just received them in the mail about a week ago and just replaced my burners today. Here is what I did.

Remove the grates and burner heat deflectors. There are 4 screws on the knob panel, 2 on the left and 2 on the right. Remove the screws and pull back about a inch or two. I found it helpful to open all the doors a bit to rest the panel on them. The burners should remove easily once this is done. Replace the burner tubes and be sure tubes have holes facing up on the one side for correct heat distribution. When placing the knob panel back on, make sure that burner tubes go onto the gas control knob correctly. Replace screws on the knob panel.

****Get a wire brush about the size of a tooth brush to clean the starter, the thing that makes the spark to start the flame.****

None of my igniters on my 30400043 Ducane grill will light the burners. I've had a grease fire due to the burners rusting out and replaced the burners. The insulation on the wires to the igniters has...


As I tell customers, when they ask me, "How long will this grill last?" "That depends on well you take care of it with routine maintenance and cleaning."

The wiring for the electronic ignition and the spark ignitors are replaceable. The ignitor button or the "clicker" as you called is replaceable. But all you may to do, is change the battery inside the igniter button. To help you further, i have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your grill. It will have an exploded view of the parts, which should help you identify them by part number and order them from Ducane, if you like.

A far as the infrared burners are concerned, they blow out easily if the wind is just blowing slightly. That's why they have a thermocouple on the burner, to turn the gas off to it, when it gets blown out. When preheating an infrared burner, the hood/lid of the grill should be closed.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

How to replace burners


Replacing the burners on any Ducane Gas Grill is not an easy task. As the control panel has to be dismantled to accomplish it. With that in mind, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual. The section Annual Maintenance starting on page 21, will be a big help to yo in removing the old burners and installing the new ones.

I have a Ducane Affinity 4400 grill. The ignitor has worked fine for the first couple of years and just recently stopped working. I replaced the battery and this corrected the problem for a few weeks, but...


Several things come to mind, that may be contributing to the problem.

1. Corroded contacts in the battery holder. Remove the battery and inspect for corrosion. Use a
Q-Tip & WD40 to clean the contacts.
2. A loose or corroded connection of the ground wire from the ignition module to the grill's frame.
Trace and inspect the ground wire.
3. Loose or damaged wires to each burner's spark igniter. Remove the grill grates and the flame
tamers to inspect each spark igniter.

If none of the above solves the problem, replacing the ignition module is the next step. You can purchase one from Ducane http://www.ducane.com/contact/
or from http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/gasgrillparts/

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

The burners do not light consistenly. I can see the igniter spark and the fuel supply is good. If the igniter does work the main burners may not light until I creat a draft then the burner takes off.


It sounds as if, the burners need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. As do the Venturi valves on the open end of each burner. Spiders like to build nests in the Venturi openings and clog them up. It's a prat of Routine Maintenance, takes a little time to perform, but is not difficult to do. It does require removing the burner knobs and the control panel cover (which was a poor design by Ducane/Weber)

To help make this a little easier for you, I have included a link to a Ducane Stainless Steel Model Grill that will show you how to remove the burners. Pay particular attention to the Annual Maintenance section starting on page 21. You can download and print this manual for future reference.

The ignitor wire to the burners my have come loose or has lost full contact. Trace the wiring from the Ignitor Button to the main burners. Note if it loose or has come completely off. Also, check inside the grill at each burner to see if the ingnitors are covered with grease. If that's the case, clean them with alcohol and either a rag or a cotton ball. If all this fails to solve your problem, change the battery in the Ignitor Button with a brand new Alkaline type battery.

Hope this helps solve your problem. Happy Grilling!

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.

Meridian 5 burner trouble


Yes you can fix it. Carefully remove the screws that hold the panel where the burner knobs are, There are 3 screws on each panel under the side shelf. There is another screw up underneath the face plate as well. Once the screws are out pull the face plate up and out so that all the tubes are disengaged. It should rest about 2 inches tilted back. Now remove the grates and burner covers and inspect the burner tubes. You will most likely find that spider webs or hornets have blocked off the gas flow to the burner. carefully clean every burner tube out and put everything back. You also may want to use a bit of sandpaper on the ignitor tip. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. It seems all Ducanes attract spiders on the burners...
