To remove the igniter module from a Swiss Grill 460, you will need to locate the module and then follow these steps:

  1. Disconnect the power supply to the grill to ensure safety.
  2. Locate the igniter module. It is typically located near the burners and may be secured with screws or clips.
  3. If the igniter module is secured with screws, use a screwdriver to remove the screws and gently lift the module out.
  4. If the igniter module is secured with clips, gently pry the clips away from the module with a flat tool such as a screwdriver or butter knife. Be careful not to damage the clips or the module.
  5. Once the clips or screws have been removed, gently lift the igniter module out of the grill.
I hope this information helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Ignitor not working on Swiss grill outdoor grill

Did the igniter continuously sparks when the button was pressed?
If it did, the igniter usually has a battery.
Try twisting the igniter button counter clockwise it gain access to a battery compartment

I fixed a CharBroiler grill’s igniter this past weekend by replacing its AA battery.

On my Webber Spirit E 310 the ignitor no longer works. it does not click. i changed the battery and tried it both ways because I forgot which way I took it out. It had slight corrision on the battery which...

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!!

Re: Cabana Kitchens, model #DML27S, Serial #286-21. Problem: The 2 button igniter does not produce a spark to light the LP gas. I've replaced the 2x 9-volt batteries as I did last year. Help? ...

Don, the first thing that comes to mind, is that the ignition module has lost it's ground. Trace the wires behind the module, to see if there is a loose one. If so, more than likely it's the ground wire.

Hope this helps you to get back up and grilling.

I push the button but it just clicks. there is a disconnected white wire but I don't know where to connect it

That white wire runs from the ignition module to the spark igniter on the burner(s). Check the igniter for the one that's missing the wire. Then slide the wire up on the bottom tip of the igniter. It will look like a large diameter needle.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Ignightor dont work and i put a new batt in it also.what do i do?

Todd, the first thing to to do, is to remove the battery you just installed and look inside the battery holder for corrosion. If you see any, clean it off with a Q Tip sprayed with WD40. Then reinsert the battery with the Positive Tip (+) end facing you. If that didn't solve the problem, you'll need to trace down the wiring from the igniter module to each spark tip, at each burner. You want to see if all the wiring is intact and not damaged. Also, check the grounding wire from the igniter module to the grill's frame to see if it has come loose or has lost contact. If all this troubleshooting does not find a problem, it's a better than average chance that the Igniter Module will need to be replaced. You can purchase a new one from Lynx or find one online that will fit your make and model grill. Appliance Factory Parts online is a good place to find grill parts, even for discontinued models.

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

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!

Ford 460 - no spark

Since the distributor is in the front on the 460 and you replaced the water pump check the connection plug coming from the distributor. If you disconnected it when removing the water pump you may not have made the connection tight enough to complete the connection. Look for pinched wires also. And your engine does not have points. You have a breakerless ignition system in the distributor. The air gap should be set at 8 thousands of an inch. Check the gap. Good luck.

get another ignition module sometimes they come broken and if it keeps happening there might be an electrical draw somewere
