what is the best fix for southbend 1195448 igniter wire too short?
To be sure I understand correctly, you purchased a new Southbend Range 1195448 FLAME SENSOR,90 DEGREE | Parts Town
and it is too short?
What piece of equipment are you trying to attach it to? This part should fit dozens of Southbend products.
I would say you got the wrong part or your putting it in wrong, or they sent you the wrong thing. Never heard of an ignition wire being too short if its an OEM part. I don't think they use special wire for it, just special rubber insulation to protect from the high voltage.
The original part is the 1175127 and has been replaced by 1195448. several customers have said the black wire is too short or they need to stretch it to fit.
WEEEEll. The one you got on the right looks like 12 or 14 AWG fiberglass coated ceramic bla bla. Are you sure thats an igniter and not a monitoring electrode?
Looks like a flame sensor to me. Not a igniter that will have a different insulation for the high voltage.
Just to iron out the lingo confusion, Monitoring elecrode and flame sensor are the same thing.
Normally igniters have thick rubber insulation to protect from the high voltage input needed o arc. So what you have here (or so it seems) is what monitors the flame and grounds to the ignition module or gas valve or circuit board or whatever it goes to, which tells the gas system, I am alive, fuel me! So for that matter, its really just a piece of metal with a wire on it, so if you need to extend that, THAT as in the picture then just extend it, should not matter, try to use the same insulation type but if its out of a hot area where you need to extend it, then it won't matter at all, just keep the wire size the same.
Hopefully that made a lick of sense.
I have to say, I've read many comments on this forum. I've noticed that you seem
to have something to say about every question posed. I've also noticed that you
spout an answer even when you don't know what you are talking about. This
question is classic for you. It's a case of Southbend changing a part that is not
identical to the part it replaced, plain and simple. If you can at all hold your tongue
so to speak, and comment when you actually have experience with what you say,
you will do everyone who visits this forum a favor.
Thanks for reading.
This serves zero purpose as to the nature of your original problem. How did you solve the issue?
It doesn't seem to me that olivero was trying to insult you by telling you he thought you were wrong. Perhaps he is wrong. Everyone on the forum has been mistaken at some point.
In any case, I don't see the value in bringing up a comment from more than 7 months ago unless you've got more information like, "hey, I spoke to Southbend and they verified they made a mistake and are recalling all the 1195448."
I'm glad you are here reading on the forums. Each visit from a user or guest, whether common poster or lurker, is important.
So, I ask again, what was the solution to the igniter wire being too short? Did you rig it somehow? Did Southbend admit they made a mistake? Or is there another outcome I've missed?

Yup, I'd have to give that post one of these:
There wasn't no need for that.
