Was it time to replace this?

9 years in a Triangle Tube PE110 Natural Gas boiler. This boiler does heating and domestic hot water with a built in 10 gallon SS IDWH.

This igniter lasted a long time.

    Was it still lighting ? Or is that why you were there?
    Hopefully the new one will last as long as the old :)

    It was on a hard lock out and when it fired you could hear a little boom as to much gas before it would light.

  • I just had the same problem with an 8-year old TT Prestige Solo 110 in Berkeley. Most of the time, the boiler wouldn't light, but when it did, it did a mini-explosion.
    The igniter looked exactly like yours; deformed and too large of a gap. New igniter fixed the problem.
    Often wrong, never in doubt.

    What is this maintenance of which you speak? Is it French?

    French pronounce it: main-teh-nen-ssss in those 4 distinct syllables. 😁
