Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

Can you get me the complete model number off the unit.

That is not the model, you need to check the tag on the frame of the unit. It should start with letters and be on the frame edge when you pull the drawer open.

You need to replace the ignitor part #16 at this link. They get dirty and corroded and then the unit will not always light even though you hear the tic tic, tic tic noise.


All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
