Need to replace the ignighters. Had a Sears repair man out. He didn't even know how to get the cover off the grill no less fix it. When we finally figured out how to get to the ignighters, I was quoted about 600.00 to to replace them. Is that for real?

For $600.00 I'll come over and replace them. But, seriously, I find it really hard to believe that all the ignitors failed at the same time. First, I would ask you, did you change the battery for the electronic ignition and install the new battery properly? If it's facing the wrong direction, it won't work. It wouldn't hurt to check the battery holder for corrosion. If you see any (you'll probably need a flashlight), A Q-Tip and some WD40 works wonders in cleaning it. Also, the spark ends of the ignitor(s) may be covered with grease and won't fire. If that's the case, a cotton ball soaked in alcohol will clean them. Check the wires to each igitor to make sure they are connected (pushed on) snugly. The same holds true for the connections of the Ignitor Module.

If all else fails and you want to repair it yourself. here's a link to the Appliance Parts Pros. They stock parts for your grill, which manufactured by Whirlpool. They have a exploded view and part numbers for what you'll need.

Hope it all works out for you and Happy Grilling!!

I have a almost new grill. It suddenly will not light but only a few inches past the ignighter. It will not go all the way to start the back burner

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.

I hope this helped you t0 troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

My remote lid quit working. All lights & ignighters still work. This unit is 2yrs old, but has NEVER been used! Lid doesn't work with remote or stationary up/down switch. don't know how to test if...

Since your grill is a built-in model and hasn't been used in 2 years, I hope the grill has remained covered during that time. If not, I suspect that any inclement weather may be playing a role in this. To test the lid lift motor, you will need to track the wiring from the switch panel to the motor. Making sure all the wires are still connected and have not been damaged by small vermin. Also, I suspect if you check your owners manual, you may find that the motor has either a circuit breaker or a fuse that is designed to protect the motor and may have been tripped or blown. If the grill has remained uncovered, even the switch on the console may have suffered from water damage over the past 2 years.

It all else fails, contact the authorized Fire Magic dealer you purchased the grill from or the manufacturer, the R.H.Peterson Company, Technical Service @ 800-332-3973.

Hope this helps you to start troubleshooting the problem.

Dryer wonT heat, but drum turn

You need a heating element replaced. It is not hard to fix, the heating element should only cost you about $20.00 and for the labor it might cost you $45.00 for the repair man to fix it. A total of about$65.00 maybe even less.

I have a Colemann 3000 grill which is in need of repair. The grill has been in storage for the past five years. The guts seem to have rusted out. I'll replace the parts, but am curious as to how best to...

Order the parts from or take it to Sears or grill repair person. If you do it yourself, take it apart first so you know wxactly what parts you need. I have the same grill in the same condition. I am replacing the rusted parts and expect it to look and function like new. I got mine to last a little longer by spraying the inside of the grill down with PAM in between uses after cleaning.

Personally I'd go with the repair company - I had a bad experience with Sears - they did something similar to me and I'm not too impressed with their service standards.
