    Yup. Put it in there and hook it up to them. Cost of the igniter. Also will need an igniter off switch and halogen pin style receiver for igniter.

    What you need is the Ignitor with housing. Send me a PC (Private Conversation) with your email for more info and price.

    You need the 120 ignition switch, halogen pin socket, igniter.

    According to the stove doc:
    "If it has a control board then it is a EF1
    the EF 2 and 3s had Timers and Dial O fires controls NOT CONTROL BOARDS"

    Also it may have the non ignition burn pot.
    You can either get a new burn pot or drill a hole in the appropriate spot of the old burn pot.

    The older EF 1 and 2 and 3s older than 2004 did not have the halogen socket so the ignitor could not be pulled out from the front of the stove.

    Enviro did not make a non-ingniter burn pot AFAIK

    Sorry, I meant burn grate. Yes, you are right the pot may need to be upgraded...personally I'd just drill a hole in the old one for $100.

    I didn't know they called that thing the burn pot, I always call it the air box...silly me.
