The gas dryer stopped heating.

The dryer was bought in 1998. When part of the burner tube broke off because of rust it appears to have fallen against the igniter, causing the igniter to break. The Igniter Kit part's fit correctly.

Handle with care!

Needed to change the connect plug on the wires, alas, no plug on the dryer wires, otherswise, was straight forward.

It really was easy to install, if you have the physical flexibility and tools to get into where you need to be to align the unit and tighten the screws into place.

Response and shipment was quick ...

This part is very fragile when out of packaging if it breaks it’s no good!!! Be careful handling !!
