Hi, Kirk. The positive end of the battery should face you, when you install it. Before you rush out to buy a new ignition module, check all the wiring from the module to to each spark ignite. You want to make sure that all wiring is in intact, that the ground wire for the module is attached to the grill frame and that the spark igniters are clean & free of grease.

If you find you need to replace the igniter module, you can find it at the following link.

Hope this helps you. Don't forget you can match light the burners if necessary, until the igniter module is replaced. Happy Grilling!!

First, just pull off the igniter cap/button straight up.
change the AAA battery. Mine lasted 3 years.
this should solve most igniting issues.

Grill was lit and when I went back to check it was off and i can't get it started, just clicks, seems like the starter.ignitor is broken?

Did you try to light it with a match? If it lights, then you have propane. If the ignitor is :clicking, usually it is sparking also.

Ignitor will not strike

Have you changed the battery in the Ignitor Button? If not, unscrew the plastic ring that holds the ignitor button/cap in place. Once you have, you will see either a AA battery or a AAA battery. Note which way it's facing. Replace the battery with a new one out of the package, being sure it's facing the right direction. But, before putting it in, check inside the holder for any corrosion that the dead battery may have caused. If you see corrosion, carefully clean it out.

If the above didn't solve the problem, check all the ignitor contacts at each burner for grease deposits. If you find some, clean it with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol. If that fails to solve the problem, check all the ingnitor wire connections to make sure they are still firmly in place.

Any or all of the above should solve your problem and get you back up grilling again.

Hope this helped you.

My weber spirit 310 igniter will not work. It does not click or make a spark. I have changed the battery. I did notice that the battery chamber was very corroded so I cleaned it out but still no click....

I suspect that the corrosion you found has taken it's toll. You will need to replace the the ignitor box.
if it's still under warranty, Weber may cover it. Either way, you can get the part from Weber on line. Make sure you have your Model #, Serial # of the Grill and the date and proof of purchase.

Ignitor does not work on EP-310 WEBBER GRILL

It could be a couple of things, if the ignitor does not click when you push the button, it could need to be replaced. It could also be a bad wire or electrode.

In June I bought a new Weber grill but the auto ignitor does not work--there is no click--therefore no spark. I can light the grill manually.

If there is no click, it is most likely the igniter module is bad. The igniter module should be available at any Home Depot or Lowe's; in any case, your owner's manual will show you how to remove and replace the igniter module. If you don't have the owner's manual, I will include a link to one online; you will need Adobe to open it. Here is the link:

Try this and if it doesn't fix your problem, come back and let me know and we will troubleshoot further. Good luck!
