Genuine GE ignitors don't seem to last long in this oven (which burns propane, if it matters). Two replaced in last five years alone; one of those had only about 3 years' service on it. $75 apiece gets spendy. I see 'em on eBay for $18/ea, not in any maker's box; guessing generic replacements of unknown quality or durability.

 

Any thoughts?

Your model uses the "round" Ignitor

GE doesn't "make" Ignitors ..
there's only one (maybe two) manufactures ..
Ignitors are fragile..
don't bang 'em before or after installation ...
Using the Oven Self-Clean will also shorten their life ..

I usually order the Whirlpool part and cut the leads and wire nut in.

 

The Whirlpool kit comes with an additional mounting bracket and screws and can generally get it cheaper than the GE labeled part.

 

I haven't had any problems with any of the one's I've replaced.

 

I usually get the Genuine FSP Whirlpool 4342528 round ignitors for under $25.00 wholesale.
