How do I intensify the spark on my Whirlpool gas stove igniters? Answered
I have a Whirlpool gas stove. A few months ago a few of the spark igniters started to fail. When I discovered that they cost $30 to $40 to replace, I learned how to make my own. The igniters are not much more than a small copper tube soldered to a wire and imbedded in a clay cylinder. Here is my question: Is there a component that would be the opposite of a resister that would intensify the spark? My knowledge of electronics is rather limited. I will soon share this project on Instructables.
