Replace cylindrical igniter with flat igniter cause problem?

Have an OLD Caloric RWP212 gas built in oven that used a cylindrical igniter that has gone bad. Cannot find a cylindrical replacement part (0206RC04 T). Will it be possible to use a flat igniter for this relic? Will it require getting a new gas valve holder to attach?
This is my first time using this sight, so unsure what to do next!

Welcome to the forums.

Using the model number of your range it looks like you should be using a flat igniter.

Caloric Range/Stove/Oven Model RWP-212 (RWP212) Igniter Parts from Repair Clinic

Is this parts listing incorrect for your stove ?
I couldn't find any listing on the part number you supplied so I'm curious where you obtained that from ?

I have the part in my hand! It's my understanding that it's the original part. The part number I got from what is written on the part itself. Also has the number 9306 on the cylinder.

the part also has the words CARBO on the cylinder. The owner says it may be the original oven that was there when he moved there in 1964.

Check out the link below. Let me know if that is what yours looks like. The bracket may be slightly different.

Round Universal Silicon Carbide Hot Surface Furnace Igniter/Ignitor - Replacement Household Furnace Ignitors - Amazon.com


9306 is a date code. 1993 would be the year that was manufactured. So it may be a replacement.

Yes! the bracket is different, but I can feed the wires through an additional ceramic tube and metal cover that holds the bracket I have which is reusable.

I see that this Universal silicon igniter is no longer available. Should I go with just any Universal round carbide hot surface igniter?

FYI..... Carbo is short for Carborundum. I've found several older numbers that work in Caloric ovens. I'm trying to find out what the difference is between them .

Although that style is similar to yours...... the igniter in the picture was used in a furnace. They don't all run on the same voltage.

Update?

Hey PJmax, do you have update on the voltage comparisons on the igniters? I'd like to order one soon. Thanks for all your help
