    Remove the side panels and then there are two screws. Directly beneath the door on the outside of the stove.

    Peace

    If you cut the wires to the old one, why couldnt you just solder them to the new ignighter rather than unplugging them to use the new wires if the new wires are too short in the first place? Or were the leads long enough?

    The wires run through a conduit in the stove. The reason you cut them off is to pull the new wires through the conduit.

    Well my cheap igniter from Grainger quit on me the other day. Only about 2 more weeks of stove weather so I will hand light the darn thing for the time being.

    I have tried that with poor results. I just lay the propane torch in there so it stays put blowing on one spot and after a minute or 2 I pull it out and start the fans...works great.

    I am having igniter issues again in my St. Croix. It went out as always at the end of last season. I replaced it 3 weeks ago and when I test fired the stove, the igniter burned out after the fire was going. It blew the fuse on my circuit board as well. Located a new fuse and another Grainger vulcan cartridge heater, installed it last night and the stove burned fine for 30 min. and then blew the fuse again. I have ordered new fuses and I'll replace that and try to fire it up again to see if the igniter is blown again for sure but I expect it is. What would be the reason the fuse is blowing? I dont want to keep repeating the same mistake.

    Is the ignitor still energized after the stove heats up? Is the air channel to, around, and from the ignitor clear of ash?

    I guess the question also becomes how you ended up doing the wiring when you replaced your igniter? Might the connection be shorting out? If fuses are blowing to me you have a short. Might be worth a look see.

    I did it the same as I always have. I had cut the old wires at the point where they turn towards the rear of the stove. I use butt connectors and slather it with high heat silicone and let it dry. I dont know how there could be a short.
