Electrodes Help Page

Need help in matching your oil burner electrodes?


We have found the best way to find which oil burner electrodes you need is to match the electrodes by shape and size.  Other than shape, there are three measurements you need:  the diameter of the porcelain, the length of the porcelain and the distance from the end of the porcelain to the end of the tip (measure straight - not along the bends). See diagram on picture attached/below:
how to measure electrodes
We carry a wide number of popular electrodes, but we do not carry all of them.
We can special order some that we do not stock.  We have copied two pages from our supplier's catalog and put them on our website: and Try to match your electrodes to one on these pages.  If your browser shows these pages too small, often if you click on the image, your browser will enlarge the picture.  You can also hold down the CTRL key and press the + sign to zoom in (holding the CTRL key and pressing the - sign zooms out.)

If you find a electrode on either of these pages that match yours, send us the 'Cat No' and we will get you a price and availability. Ignore the prices on these scanned in pages; they are not accurate.

If you can not find a electrode that matches yours on our website page or on one of the two supplier's catalog pages, then we most likely cannot get it.

Hope this helps.
