    How long does your igniter usually last on average? Note stove model and igniter. Just curious, trying to figure if my alternative power has any effect.
    Mine usually lasts 3 years, the super igniter lasted 4 so not that big a deal.
    Stove = Whitfield P30
    Super igniter = 13-1117
    Standard igniter = 12150213

    Enviro ignitors tend to last long- both of mine from 2009 are on original equipment, except I changed the convection blower last season on my Empress, it was getty noisy- have it as a backup. It varies from Mfr to Mfr...

    My Castle Serenity pellet stove igniter lasted 2 years. Used the igniter quite a bit: on and off. Had it professionally replaced. expensive fix. Estimate 200+ cycles on and off.
