Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your

issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation.

You should be able to get a generic replacement at Graingers. I can't say for sure you'll have to go there with the igniter and see if they can match it up
