How to Light a Gas Grill Manually

Char-Broil® gas grills have an igniter button for quick, easy start-ups. If yours fails to spark, you can still light the grill manually. As a back up, and for safety, Char-Broil® grills have a built-in match holder that hangs on a chain under your grill.

Steps to Manually Light Your Gas Grill


Open the lid of your grill and find the lighting hole on the side of the grill.


Once you see that, place a match in the curled end of the holder. Then light the match.


Turn on the gas burner closest to the hole. Insert the match into the hole to light the burner.


After the first burner is lit, turn on adjacent burners to cross-light them.

Once all the burners desired on are lit, the operation of your gas grill will be the same.
