LIGHTER, PILOTAlways OEM - Nothing generic, "equivalent" or off-brand.
An ignitor is a device used to initiate combustion - the sequence of exothermic chemical reactions between a fuel and an oxidant accompanied by the production of heat and conversion of a chemical state. The release of heat can also result in the production of light in the form of either glowing or a flame. A gas lighter is a firestarting mechanism used to ignite gas stoves which do not have automatic ignition systems. It relies on a physical phenomenon called the piezoelectric effect to generate an electric spark, which ignites the combustible gas from the stove burner.
A pilot light is a small gas flame, usually natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas, which serves as an ignition source for a more powerful gas burner. In a pilot assembly, there is thermocouple sitting in the pilot light's flame. The electricity that is created from the flame contacting the thermocouple wire runs to a small electromagnetic valve and holds it open. If the pilot light blows out, the thermocouple quickly cools off. It stops generating electricity and the valve closes.
