My Coleman BBQ igniter works, but it doesn't pop back and keeps clicking. Ideas for an easy fix?

BBQ Igniter Fix
by: Joseph


Thanks for your question.

An igniter that won't pop back is usually because of a failed spring or something sticky spilling on it.

Some igniters can be taken apart by unscrewing the case, but most are not meant to be repaired. However, they're inexpensive and easy to replace, so that would be your best option.

Many igniters are around $10-$15. Not much for hassle-free ignition. Do a search for Coleman BBQ (Your Model) Igniter to find one.

If you have any other questions, let me know.

Happy Cooking!
