Default Propane Grill Infrared Burner Question

I bought a Charbroil grill from Lowes a few months ago. It has 3 main burners, a
side burner, a ceramic rotisserie burner and a ceramic infrared searing burner.
The thre main burners work great as does the side burner.

However, for the life of me I can't get the two ceramic burners to work. Using
the spark lighter or a grill lighter, I can occasionally see a small wave of
blue flame moving across the burner plate, but it doesn't take. Yes - know those
types of burners aren't supposed to have a visible flame. There's no burning
going on at all - no heat.

I've checked the jets and there's definitely gas coming out of the valve.
There's no adjustible air valve as far as I can see. Any ideas as to what I can

Sigh. For anyone Googling this in the future, a definite case of not RTFM.

The ceramic burners will not hold a flame until they get hot. Basically, you
have to hold the ignitor until the ceramic gets red hot. That's easily a full
two minutes. They are also sensitive to gas flow, so having other burners
running may starve them of the gas they need to stay lit.
