I purchased this range model CRG 9800BAB in '95.

Since i've owned it the ignitor model 12400035 has never lasted more than 11 months. First time under warrenty; second and third time I paid...$125 a pop. After that I raised the issue with Matag who agreed to replace the part. This year, like clockwork the part failed again. I called up Eldis and i was told the part now had only 90 day warrantyand that I would now have to pay %50 of the cost for this years failure. Any suggestions as to what I should do here other than throwing it out?

Ignitor life depends on usage, not time.  If you use your oven a lot the ignitor will not last long, my 7 year old Whirlpool range with self-clean has the original bake and broil ignitors...however I do not use the oven in the summer (think heat in Texas) and do not use it much in the winter either.  Do you use your oven for hours a day or week?  Most all domestic manufacturers have gone to one year warranty total on new apliances and 90 days on replacement parts, so I do not see where you will gain any advantage to replacing the range. Where are you paying $125.00 for this ignitor, is about $58.00 from this site...

Another thing to consider is Glow Bars are built in service calls. The older or as Peggy states the more you use them, the weaker they get till they will only glow but not draw enough to open your valve. The variable here is incoming voltage. The igniter is rated to work on 120VAC +or- 10% or basically from 132VAC-108VAC. You can take a weak non functioning igniter out of a home or outlet that is running only 108VAC and have it work fine in a home that has 120VAC. I have had consumers bring them to my shop to show them this (ONLY WAY to prove a point sometimes is to show them). If your voltage is lower then desired, your igniter life will be shorter. Might want to check what your outlet voltage is under load and what voltage is actually making it to the igniter. The 12400035 igniter they are selling you is a good all purpose (hate this word) universal igniter, that I use on many applications.
