Is there any difference on these surface igniters

511-330-148 (wire connector) vs 511-330-188 (wire leads)

    yeah, ones an oem (511-330-148) and is beefier and one is an aftermarket (511-330-188) which is thinner. The oem will just plug right back in. The aftermarket might require you to cut the molex plug off and splice it together.

    about $100.00

    other than that, not much. They both fit in the same hole on the boiler. they both will light the gas,
    they both will fail over time. I would go with the lower cost. You can have 4 fail and still be ahead of the game.

    After you make that expensive repair and you still have the same problem, What will you check next?
