Atwood Mobile Products 93868 Spark Probe Single Sense – Bought as a spare

This fixed the issue with my rv water heater where it would try to light (click, click, click) and fail to ignite.

Exact replacement just wasn’t my problem but kept for a spare part in case i need it later.

These systems were engineered for quick production and easy installation. Nobody every said anything about reliability or options for repair. This stupid part came with a self tapping screw for replacement – junk. How hard would it be to have a machine screw and nut?.

Great part at a great price. The flame would light but not stay on. This was because the old part was not sensing the flame and would turn the gas off.

Took me almost 5 minutes to get out of the packaging, and 45 seconds to install. It worked first time with no need for adjustments.

  • Fixed the problem, perfect match, and reasonable price.
  • Not Built for Maintenance
  • Easy install. This fixed the issue with my RV

Fit my suburban furnace with a little bit of modification. Had to change the plug and bend a tab. But this definitely fixed the problem.

Bought this item for my camper water heater which no longer would no longer stay lit. It was easy to install and now i have hot water in my camper again.

This ignitor is for the newer model atwood water heaters only (with only one wire). If you have an older model atwood water heater (with 2 wires), try searching for number 91606. That is the correct ignitor for older 2 wire water heaters. I saw this information nowhere in the amazon description, so thought i would post it here.

Water heater now will light and stay lit.

Just what was needed to complete our repairs on trailer hot water tank.

Sometimes you can’t clean the old one well enough. Use a bbq lighter to heat it up to make sure it is sensing flame.

My atwood water heater #g6a-8e stopped firing. Had gas flowing, but no spark, or insufficient spark. When i used a small lighter – (barbecue style) and flipped the heater switch, the heater fired and ran well, but just wouldn’t restart. Some questions were posted asking if this would fit the above model, and it did. This part was the exact match for the one i had. Igniter should have installed in minutes, but the tapping screw that came with the igniter was too big for the mounting hole (on the part), couldn’t tap into the stainless mounting bracket. I finally used a 8-32 tap and a machine screw and that did the trick.

Value for money atwood 6 gal heater.

Works great, hopefully it lasts a long time. Was an easy installation and solved my intermittent lighting issue.

Installed easily as a replacement. Needed to bend the contact a little to get a good spark but after tweaking it worked great.

Bought this as a spare for my 2007 tt, you never know when you might need one.

Fixed the cold start and run problem. It would start and almost immediately shut off 4 or 5 times before staying lit. Packaging was a pain to open (vacuum packed and it stuck to delicate pieces) i should have down rated it one star but very happy it worked so well.
