    0 5/5 Jeff Haines - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Honeywell R8184G4009 International Oil Burner Control (Tools & Home Improvement) Last year the fuel oil furnace started running funny. Kicking on for about a minute, not blowing out any heat then shutting off. (Sucks in November) Did some research and was about 99% sure this and the accessories is what I needed to fix it. Just to be sure, I called the furnace people out to do the yearly clean and check and sure enough this is what I needed. He went to his truck and got the prices. A.K.A. the Christmas party money quote and said it was going to be around $500. Me: O.K. Thanks for coming out. Him: Don't you want me to fix it? Me: Uh, no. Seriously, I am handy at nothing. Just ask my dad. Bought this, the wiring and some other little part, put it in and it worked. Just check online resources before paying these jackwads a lot a money to do something simple. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 3, 2010

    Do It Yourself and save $$$

    I had the exact same experience as Jeff Haines' review. I also am NOT a fixit guy. Jeff's review, plus the fact that my quote was $700, prompted me to at least try fixing it. I mean, it's half broken, then making it completely broken won't matter as much.In addition to the $700 quote, the technician did note that my furnace was extremely old (it is) - and that fixing this one thing doesn't guarantee something won't break later. I admit - I think the furnace is older than I am...However, my technician was also telling me that it shouldn't be kicking on and off - this was before I found out it was an intermittent control. So there was no way I letting this guy near my oil furnace again.The main thing with my furnace is that it ran fine except when the temperature dropped below feezing. Then it would trip, I would get up, reset it, and anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour later, it would trip again. So I have many warm nights, but cold mornings around... 5/5 steviecool "steviecool" (VA, USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Perfect Replacement

    0 5/5 PB from GC - See all my reviews My oven wouldn't light but all other igniters on stovetop and broiler were working so was hoping the igniter was the problem. Found this at Amazon and thought, what's the harm in trying. Received the product withing 3 days, very plain packing, no instructions so was a little intimidated about snipping the wires to connect with the supplied high temp wire nuts. Spent a good 5 minutes connecting the old connectors to the wires then replacing into the oven. Turned it on, saw an orange glow, then lit very quick. Been working perfect since installation. Very pleased with the product. Only suggestion would be to have a little bit of instruction or at least a note saying, connectors may vary, so use your old and connect with wire nuts. Not going to knock the product for that small suggestion though. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 25, 2010

    Not A Genuine GE Part

    0 1/5 Scott B - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: GE WB2X9154 Igniter for Gas Broiler or Oven (Tools & Home Improvement) This item is represented as being a genuine GE part. The subtitle says, "by General Electric." The 2nd product image clearly shows a GE part and has the caption, "Genuine GE Part. If you receive this item not in a GE box, it is not as described. Careful of less expensive imitations." I guess I should have been leery, since 3 other reviewers stated that they were sent a non-GE part. However, I went against my better judgment and ordered it. The part delivered by SupplyLand was manufactured by SurfaceIgniter, not GE. I needed the part immediately, so I have kept and am using what I have been sent. However, if I had wanted a SurfaceIgniter part, I could have found it cheaper elsewhere on Amazon's website. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 4, 2011

    Here are Easy Installation Instructions

    I took care & ordered the actual GE OEM part. Installation was simple, and I am not very mechanically inclined. UNPLUG THE RANGE. I started by removing the oven door, cooking racks and the bottom drawer. Then I removed the two thumb screws at the rear of the oven and slid the bottom cover out of the oven. I removed the screw holding the front of the burner to the oven. I then went down into the oven drawer and removed the two screws attaching the burner to the back of the oven wall (this is the worst part because they are kind of hard to access...I used a 1/4" nut driver). I disconnected the two ignitor connectors when I was done with the screws. Then back into the oven, I pulled the burner assembly into the oven for easier access to the ignitor. Remove the two screws attaching the ignitor to the burner. My new ignitor had no connectors so I had to cut them off of the old ignitor. I cut the wires as close to the old ignitor as possible to leave plenty of extra wire. Using the two... 5/5 Dave - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Saved $500 doing it myself...

    My local heating and cooling company came out to tell me something that I already knew, but I wanted to make sure I was right. They told me that I needed to replace my ignition panel. The technician told me that he would need to check with his supply department to get me a price for the unit. He called me back with a $650 price tag. This was both the product and install. Needless to say I was a little shocked. I confirmed the product ID with the parts department and looked online for myself.I was in disbelief when I found it for $135 (product plus shipping). This means that they were going to charge $515 for 30 minutes worth of work. As an avid consumer I cannot take this. I am a novice home repairman and have very little training, but was able to install this with little problem. I did not install the new pilot ignition wire, as the previous one was still working.

This review is from: Lennox 30W33 OEM Ignition Control Kit This Controller was not exactly the same as the old one but it works a lot better. I had problems with my Heater intermittently turning OFF too early or not turning on at all. The old controller would only try to Ignite one time and if it didn't sense the flame it would turn off and not try again. This new controller keeps trying several times until the burner turns on. They must have had problems with the old style and upgraded the design.
