As with most any Weber product, this one did not disappoint. My grill is 14 years old and I completed a major overhaul after needing the replace the burners. I figured I would also include the ignitor since the box had burned through, even though the original was still working. Home Depot didn't have the replacement in stock but I got it in just a few days through an online order and purchase. Installation took only a couple minutes and it fired up the first time out! The entire process was a breeze and nice to know that HD had my replacement available. Kudos to the entire deal, I am an affirmed HD and Weber enthusiast and will continue to be....
Pros: Durable, Easy to Assemble, Superior Craftsmanship
This new starter brought my over ten year old Weber back to life! It was super-easy and fast to install, and works like it did when my BBQ was new. Starts with the first press of the button! Directions are included, but I viewed a YouTube installation video first, and didn't even need to read the directions.
Make sure you buy the correct igniter kit for your Weber model. If you are unsure, a call to Weber customer service should clarify things. Free shipping to the nearest Home Depot makes this purchase a no-brainer.
works great, but I ordered the wrong one, the base is different for diff. models. I was still able to use new igniter with my old button and everything works great. Ordered on a sunday nite and UPS deliverd to my house on Wed.
Site says this fits Spirit models - maybe some but not mine (circa 2007). Do yourself a favor, take 5 minutes and pull the burner nobs, undo 2 Phillips screws in the side and pop the plate to see which one you need.
I ordered new burners, igniter, flavorizer bars and grates. Easy to follow instructions to remove and install with a screwdriver and a wrench. Only issue was having to run to the store to swap this igniter for the other one.
5 stars for the Weber parts, not so many for the website :-)
The igniter kit met all expectations. As a Weber product, it was easy to install because of the directions provided. Worked first time like a champ. I appreciate Home Depot making the product more affordable.

10 year old Weber, going strong with replacement parts.
Was an exact replacement. Installment took about 15 minutes. It is important that you get the right igniter for your grill. I have an older unit that takes the Black push button replacement. Newer models take the red button. I was able to order this older version on-line at HD as the store only stocked the newer (red button) model.
you list the igniter as the one for the Spirit when in fact it is not the right one for that grill. I am not going to waste my time and gas returning it for the correct igniter. It's just a shame to spend that kind of money on a grill and have an igniterloose and not fitting very well.
I purchased a new ignitor at the same time as I was replacing the regulator vavlve and hose since I noticed thatthe gas catcher was pretty well worn. Like all Weber replacement parts, the ignitor is fairly easy to install if you just follow the printed directions. One challenge I noted with the new style ignitor button on my older model Genesis Silver grill was the addition of threads to the shaft of the ignitor. My older model ingitor slid into the hole in the frame and lined up with two tabs on the shaft. The new version has a threaded shaft that should slide into the hole in the frame and be secured with a nut (included). However, the threads make the shaft too wide for the older model Genesis. I ultimately was able to "thread" the shaft into the grill frame but of course this destroyed the threads and made the nut impossible to screw on.
