    Any tips for removing the BigE igniter? Is it as simple as removing the allen screw and sliding it out? What size is that allen screw? Either I have the wrong size or it's stripped out. If I remove those two large sheet metal screws, will that entire assembly pull out? If so, is a new gasket required?

    Don't know the Big E that well, but is it possible the screw isn't an allen head, but a Torx?

    Looks like an allen.

    Anyone know if the entire igniter assembly comes out if I remove the two large sheet metal screws?

    This Breckwell video shows how to remove the igniter:


    Turns out they remove the auger motor first. Also the screw on the igniter is a 1/8" allen. I'll give this a shot tonight if I have time.
