Cheaper is not always better. There's a safety valve and the ignitors must draw a certain amperage to open the valve. 3amp +... a new ignitor should draw close to 3.5amps. Expect to pay upward of $60 for 1 ignitor, replace both at the same time. There's some generics that will work, but will only last a year, there's others for $25 that won't draw enough amps to open the valve at all. $50 lesson for you that if the part needed is ~$60 most places and you find that one for $25 that you probably should have just spent what the market was telling you.
