Spark Ignition Electrode

Product Description

Spark Ignition Electrode Specifications

This spark ignition electrode lights the gas that starts the burner on your range or cooktop. This electrode is part of the burner assembly, sits next to the burner head, and is just over an inch in length. It pulls current from the ignition circuit; the more current it pulls, the warmer it gets. When the spark ignition electrode reaches a certain temperature, it creates a spark. This electrode comes with the mounting bracket you will need to successfully install the part. Before installing your new part, shut off the gas supply and unplug your appliance. This part cannot be repaired. If it is damaged or faulty, it must be replaced.

Ignition electrode broke
Removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Disconnected the wire to the electrode. The screw holding the electrode to the burner plate would not unscrew so I had to drill out the screw in order to replace it with the new ignition electrode. A little more time involved but if the screw would have come out it would have been a 10 minute job.When I ordered the part from you it came very quickly and I will certainly use you again when I have any other issues.

cracked ignitors (2)
No problem removing the burners. Removing the old initors was a different story. The tiny screws that hold the ignitor in place were baked in and could not be removed with a screw driver. I drilled them and tried to use an easy out to no avail. The screws are very short so I had to use care not to drill thru the burner. Both screw heads did snap off. I resorted to a hi temp epoxy to secure the ignitor flanges to the burner and now the all burners ignite as designed.

Replace Ignition Electrode gas range
Wow, ordered the part here and it arrived in 18 hours!! Job was fairly straight forward but the screw holding it in place was corroded and stuck. Several heating and cooling cycles with a torch and some spray lube and lots of patience and I finally rocked the screw lose.

The spark was no longer igniting the burner
The earlier reviews said very easy and 15 minutes for beginners. They were right on, except I could not get the old screw out no matter what I tried. I eventually had to drill it out and put in a self tapping new screw. This was a first for me. Then it took 15 minutes or less and works fine again. Hopefully next time someone will tell me how to get that old screw out faster.

Rear burner of sealed cartridge did not light
I removed the cartridge from the range and used a screw driver to remove the screws holding the burners assembly in the housing. (Some prefer to remove the burner from the top by removing the two screws, but I've had trouble realigning the parts that way.) I removed the ignition wire and the screw holding the bad electrode in the burner. I then installed the new electrode, attached the ignition wire, put the burners assembly back into the housing, and put the housing back into the range.
