Doesn't always replace 41-411Wednesday, November 16, 2011
First, I'd like to clarify that I had no problems with Drillspot. Nice site, good price, free & quick shipping, all great. But I want to warn people that this ignitor is not necessarily a good replacement for the old silicon carbide 41-411 ignitor it's supposed to replace. I wanted to upgrade to nitride to avoid having a "coming home to a frozen house" mini-emergency every 4-5 years. My Ruud furnace came with a 41-411 ignitor in it when I bought the house, which I'd already had to replace once before. This time I found out about the new nitride ignitors and bought this instead, but it doesn't work in my furnace. Heats up just fine, but doesn't ignite the gas at all, I think probably because it's so much shorter than the old ignitor, barely half as long from base to tip. Luckily I'm OK working off the spare carbide ignitor that I laid in last time for backup, so it's not like I had to go without heat because of this, but it's wasted money. So be careful if you try this, and don't count on it as an overnight shipment for emergency restoration or anything.
Silicon nitride ignitor should be huge improvement over carbide, replace every 10, 15, even 20 years? instead of 4-5.
It would be nice if the 41-411N part was actually a valid drop-in replacement for 41-411 like Robertshaw says it is.
