Replacing Piezo starter with battery powered

Has anyone replaced the push button piezo starters with a battery powered starters on your stove top or grill? What did you use and where did you get it?

Yes, i replaced ----------------

OC, I did the mod to my kitchen stove by replacing the PIEZO burner starter. I purchased the modular unit at WAL-MART for around $14.95 that will handle all three burners.

You simply remove the starter that came with the stove, enlarge the mounting hole to accommodate the modular unit. You will have to simply bend the plug-on clips that come with the new unit to slide on to the peg on each stove top burner. I used a Lithium AA battery to power my unit. The two remaining holes left over from the removal of the old (factory)unit
can be plugged by using plastic plugs used to put in cabinet shelf holes from Lowe's or Home Depot. I siliconed the plugs in place.

I also modified my BBQ grill with a single PIZEO starter. Had to use a external mounted electrical metal mounted box to hold the starter.

Lowe's and Home Depot have the same units for $29.95 that Wally world has for $14.95, just a different package. (made in China) The units are located in the BBQ grill accessories in WALLY WORLD.

The burners will lite each and every time you touch the rubber push start button.

Believe me, your DW will fall in love with you all over again for this simple mod.

Thanks Daisy, I'll have to go scouting @ Wally world. Might even see if I can get something going for the oven.

Will probably just take the whole unit out and take it into the garage to get to everything a little better.

If you do the oven, please let me know. I simply don't like sticking my arm in there to get things started...

I did not--------------

OC, I did not modify my oven, I still have to stand on my head to light it with a flash light in one hand, scripto lighter in the other with the dog licking me in the face while the DW is hollering, DON'T BLOW US UP FOR GODS SAKE, BUT HURRY UP!!!!!

They do make the modular units with four connections.

Will do, have to finish my 3 shelves to 3 drawers project for the wardrobe first and clean off a place on the welding table or bench to put the stove unit. That (bench/table cleaning) in itself is a major project

Great Mod Daisy!, thanks for sharing. I have a new Sterling and in the morning while everyone is asleep and I am getting breakfast ready I have to turn that dumb know and it bangs every time you turn it to light the burners, I am going to try to add the battery igniter, should work great!
