Ducane grill ignitor replacement

I have older Ducane grill model 1204SHLPE. Ignitor on right side quit working. I bought aftermarket replacement that included ignitor collector box assembly, ignitor and lead wire. When I unplugged the old wire from the spark generator, there was a metal spud sticking out of the electrical connector on the end of the lead wire attached to the old ignitor.

The new ignitor wire did not have this spud in the end of the wire. It had a female electrical connector on the end like the old one, but no spud. I was able to remove the spud from the old ignitor wire but when I tried to install into the end of the new ignitor wire, I couldn't make it fit and ended up splitting the plastic insulation on the connector on the end of the new wire. Bottom line I wasn't able to fix it.

What can I do now? I can't return the new ignitor assembly because the connector on the end of the wire is destroyed. Can I buy this kind of wire connector and splice it onto the end of the ignitor wire? Please help me!

    We have the same "stopped working" ignitor issue on two different barbeques (two homes).  Haven't seen the replacement options yet, but ours have the same male/female connectors between the ignitor and the wires leading to the burner.  Presumably the replacement units would replace the whole thing, including wires and the porcelain piece at the burner as well.  It is a daunting and frustrating task for the novice!

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.

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.

Our Ducane older model grill Model #2002SHNE fell over in the wind. All insides fell out. Do not know how to reassemble. Looking for user's manual or someone who could help.


I have searched all my reliable sources, but can not find the Owners Manual for that model Ducane. Gas Grill. The problem is it's just to old. However, Weber bought Ducane in 2000. Possibly, they may still have copies of the Owner's Manual. Call Customer Service 1-800-382-2637.

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.

Grill will not light


If the ignitor is working (producing a spark) and there is no gas when the valves are opened, try replacing the regulator.
