Polaris water heater Igniter?
I have a Polaris hot water heater, Serial # 0524107785. It's no more than 6 yrs old, and that seems to be a pretty low serial number. Anyway, the burner will not ignite, and it is blinking 3 times, which is supposed to indicate "failed ignition". The ignition module, a 'UT Electronic Controls 1018 Series Hot Surface Ignition' has already been replaced once, because the replaced unit was left behind! Is there a substitute ignition module, since I question the reliability of this unit. Could the problem be the actual ignitor? On a yellow tag in the module are the following numbers: 1018-525 3210560 0629.
