      Hello Pipes, i was wondering if you can help me out with something on my IO. My iolite has trouble starting the flame. My first question is what is the staple looking piece inside the iolite? the last picture in this album is the piece im talking about. http://imgur.com/a/sOBqY#60vz2D0

        The staple is for completing the grounding path for the ignitor. It completes the electrical circuit between the brass end cap of the ignitor and outer heating chamber. It is actually a spring of sorts. Mine initially popped out and the retaining cut out broke off. I managed to wedge it back in place.
        Hope this helps.

        You're very welcome, You will likely see the groove for it now that you know where it goes. Make sure it has firm (spring) connection as that is the current path.
        Good Luck,
