Thank you for your question on the removal of the igniters on the grill.

The rust inside the grills can make very difficult to replace parts inside the heat box on the grill. Between the heat and the moisture from being outside can make it a real challenge to repair.

If you are referring to the back burner electrode igniter you will need to remove the six screws on the back panel and then remove the screws that secure the igniter.

If you are referring to the main burners you will need to remove the knobs and then the rings and then the front panel to get to the main electrodes and igniter collector boxes.

Please let me know how it went.

Hi Sam, Thanks so much for responding. In the interim, I started taking the grill apart. Actually, took too much apart including removing the panel inside the box that the burners, gas collectors, etc attach too. I realized after I had it all part I didn't need to take that big piece out. Anyhow, got the burners off (frozen rear screws), the gas collectors (they fell apart in my hands). Replaced all then figured out the 4 screws that hold the front panel on. So, got all the parts replaced, new igniter and she is good to go. Thanks for your response, Thom.

Thank you for the update Thom. I am glad you have gotten it repair. I understand how nasty it can be to deal with all the rust and crumbling of the metal pieces. Sam A.

electric ignition modual.

A:

Grilling season is in high gear and if the grill is not working that does put a damper on outdoor cooking. I located a previous expert post for this model and issue and attached below. It may help while you wait for your expert. If you do need parts a good place to get them for your model is Sears Parts Direct. I also added it below.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the grill ignitor. When the button is pushed, you should hear a clicking noise. If yours is not clicking, the problem could be a shorted ignitor or defective module. To determine which is the problem remove the wires on the back of the module and push the button. If you hear the clicking, the module is fine. If there is no clicking the module is defective. I recommend checking the battery connections before ordering the module. Sometimes the connectors will rust. If you find it is rusted you can scrape the connectors with a small screwdriver and then recheck it. the module can be ordered from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the grill.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thom,

I will be happy to assist you. Installing the ignitor can be tricky. First, open the doors to see if you can see behind the knob console. If you can see, the ignitor and you have enough room to remove the ignitor you are in luck. Just remove the button first. Then remove the nut behind the button. The ignitor should come out. Once you have it out transfer the wires one at a time to the new ignitor. Then reassemble the grill in the reverse order.

Chances are you do not have this style. To replace the ignitor on this model you have to disassemble the grill. Usually you can remove the knobs and the console to access the ignitor. I am sorry we do not have any written instructions for replacing the ignitor. Be sure to take pictures as you go. They may come in handy when you reassemble the grill.

I hope this is helpful. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Before removing the original regulator and hose, take note of how the hose is connected to the gas manifold on the grill. You might need to remove some panels to access the end of the hose for removal.

Turn the valve on the lp tank off and disconnect the regulator from the tank. Remove the hose from the gas manifold by turning the hose counterclockwise. Put pipe compound or teflon tape on the threads the hose connects to and install the new hose. Connect the regulator to the lp tank and light the burners in the grill.

Coat the threads on the end of the manifold pipe the hose is connected liberally with a mixture of 1/2 water and 1/2 liquid detergent. Look closely for bubbles, if there are no bubbles you are ok. If you see bubbles, turn the lp tank valve off and tighten the hose connection. Do the leak test until there are no bubbles.
