This is the ignitor for the griddle. It had failed to ignite (glow) any more. First ignitor shipped caused the burner to light, but would not stay lit long enough for the cooking surface to come up to temperature. Thinking the replacement part was defective, I had another part shipped out. I have now replaced this ignitor twice, but the second ignitor behaves just like the first one. To troubleshoot the problem, I pulled the thermostat probe out of the griddle and placed it in a glass of cold water. With the griddle removed, the ignitor works fine and the burner runs non-stop. However, I notice that if I back off on the temperature just a little, say from 500 to 450, the ignitor shuts off - even with the thermostat still in the cold water! I suppose most would say that the thermostat is bad also, but I did not have any problem with that before the ignitor died. Also, this is not the original thermostat, as I replaced that a few years ago. Any ideas???

ANSWER Hello Victor. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the thermostat 00415004 is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
