What is the voltage that is sent to a furnace spark igniter?
How long should Furnace Ignitor be able to last?
Four to seven years
Why do furnace ignitors sometimes fail? The most common reason furnace ignitors fail is that the ignitor does not turn off when the furnace's gas is ignited. The ignitor will be short-lived if the ignition is left on for a prolonged time. They will be burned quickly if they are exposed to too much voltage, such as 80 volts.
You should also know that you can manually light a gas stove with an electronic ignition.
You cannot manually light a furnace equipped with an electronic igniter. You might be able to make the furnace work by turning off and then resetting the igniter. To locate the reset button/switch, you will need to find the documentation for the furnace.

- Engine misfires and decrease in power, acceleration, and fuel efficiency. One of the first symptoms of an issue with the vehicle's igniter is engine performance issues.
- Check Engine Light comes on. An illuminated Check Engine Light is another symptom of a potential issue with the vehicle's igniter.
- Car is not starting.
- Turn off the power to the burner/appliance.
- Release the ignitor plate hold down screws or clips.
- Swing the ignitor plate fully open.
- Use an ohmmeter to check the resistance from electrode to ground for each of the electrodes (Figure 1 and 2).
- Unplug the stove's electrical cord from the wall outlet or turn off the circuit breaker that supplies it with power. The electronic ignitor needs electricity to operate.
- Remove the burner grates and lift the stove top if you wish to use a burner.
