The grill ignitor fails all too frequently (less than 2 years). I have replaced three, and it has now failed again. I know it is a safety no-no, but if I jumper the wires around the ignitor, will the gas flow for match light, and continue to flow?

I purchased an igniter that's rated for 3.3 to 3.6 amp as I believe the original part was for the grill. The schematic indicates that power runs through the burner switch and then through the valve safety switch. It appears that there is no power through the valve safety switch to the igniter, which would lead me to believe that there is a problem with that part. I don't know how that parts works and would like a little information. Why is the igniter for this model $180.00? Isn't the only requirement the voltage and amperage? Thanks, Aaron

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???
