Greeting all,

got a call from a friend who was telling me about his stove not heating up, so I went by and check the ignitor which was bad.  I had one with me, it is the flat type, when I went to replaced it i discovered that the one in the oven has a longer body( the ceramic part, its about 6" long). the one I had with me is 2" long. 

OK here is my question.

Is there any reason why I can't use the shorter body ignitor in place of the longer body one?

I did put in and tested it, seemed to work just fine. 


Thanks for your help.

The flat ones are somewhat the same, except for length.

Depending on where the Burner holes are (and spacing), the short one may not always light the Oven

The round ones are different, electrically

RegUS, the second part of your answer isn't true, (at least I've never found it to be).

The flat hot surface ignitors only difference is length of ceramic end sticking out back side of protective metal cage/mounting bracket.    The only one that uses a different mounting bracket were you will run into trouble is with GE, they mount the ignitor on the opposite side of the burner in most of there ranges.   The GE part as two different mounting tabs so it can work on all ranges.

I usually only order the flat hot surface oven ignitors as part# WB2X9998

and 5303935066
http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=12872


because these two can usually be found on special or even at normal wholesale prices are the best cost wise.

This kit is the one that has a cover plate and extra insulation to replace the long ceramic body ignitors, Part# 12400035
http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=3377


I have saved all the parts from three of the above kits where the parts weren't need and repackage the 5303935066 in the 12400035 kit box to keep on my service truck so that if I need the extra parts I have them ready.
