Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So you are correct that the igniter you're looking for is no longer made, but part number 00603777 should work.

Please remember to rate my service before you leave. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. You can continue asking follow-up questions until you have all the information you need even after rating my service. Thank you!
