    Breckwell P4000. My ignitor is bad, or at least, I just made it bad. Can I run the stove without the ignitor? I imagine so. What do I do with the loose wires? Tape 'em up? All I have to do is get the fire going I would think...

    Yes, tape the ends so they don't short out. Start the stove, put a handful of pellets in the pot, squirt starter gel or use cheap hand sanitizer and light. Or you could use a propane torch on the pellets until their burning good, then close the door.

    My old Lopi stove has a bad ignitor and I light mine the same same. Fill the pot, starter gel and light. If I'm out of gel, I use a torch till they are glowing, then shut the door and let her rip.
