Thanks John 193 I just ordered one last night after reading my post , heading to my TSC to buy just a few bags of pellets at $4.00 a bag to try when the stove gets installed in 2 weeks, I know its late in the season to buy a pellet stove but my wife totally hates the winters, living in a 200 year old farm house doesn't make it any easier on her , I wanted to send here to ESKIMO Classes to brave the cold but she didn't find any humor in that
so i'm going to try tagging along on this thread with an igniter question.
i have the heatilator PS50 which uses quadrafire igniter part# SRV7000-462
as far as i know, that is a higher wattage igniter for the purpose of faster lighting.
but they wear out so damn fast.
i'll be searching around and will probably call my dealer, but i'm really interested in a lower voltage model that might last a little longer but will still work in my stove.
if anyone knows reasonably for sure which part number would be for said igniter, feel free to post it here.
it does need to be the 18 inch leads on it though.
Earl, I recently had to replace the ignitor on my MVAE and purchased model no SRV7000-647. This is the lower watt (300 vs 380) ignitor. I can tell you that it ignites pellets just as fast as the 380 watt unit. The only caveat is that the lower watt ignitor is for wood pellets only. I'm not familiar with your stove, but if you burn other fuels this ignitor may not work. I can also confirm the leads are around 18 inches on the lower watt model. Finally, dimensionally the lower watt ignitor is identical to the model it replaces.
