    Unplug the machine. This is fairly simple. On the front of the burn pot, remove the access panel and then remove the two 5/16 bolts which hold the igniter in place.

    Ope the left side door and remove. Remove the left side rear access panel. It should slide out.

    On the back to the unit you are looking for a yellow wire and a gray wire which are going through the weldment body. There will be a black rubber stopper siliconed on place.

    Pull the stopper out.

    The gray wire in the igniter leads will be zip tied together with some other wire, Cut this zio tie to give you more length

    Go to the front of the unit and pull the igniter outuntil you see the lead terminals. Unplug the lead terminals

    On the igniter chassis you will see a flat plate held in with two twisted metal tabs.

    Twist these tabs straight, remove the plate, pull out the igniter, replace.

    Do everything again in reverse.

    DO NOT FORGET TO ZIP TIE THE LEADS AGAIN AND RE_SILICONE THE STOPPER

    also, put the igniter chassis cover on in the same orientation as it was before.....there is a right way and a wrong way.....if done upside-down, you may not get enough airflow around the igniter to ignite the pellets. Good luck.
