Help needed can you identify this diode??? now with photo

HI my igniter wasn't working well so I pulled it apart and found some corrosion along the edge this part was damaged and fell apart as soon as I touched it. I'm not sure how to identify it. It has a black band and a silver band but that's all I can see. Any help would be appreciated. Sorry posted without pics not sure how to do it. I will post them when I work it out. The wire coming out of the other end is missing.

You have to complete 5 or 6 posts or something like that before you can post pics. Have to make sure your not a spambot, lol.

Kind of hard to identify that diode from just a photo. Did u try to google diode identification? As far as the black band almost all diodes have that. It identifies the polarity.

if it's got stripes on it, its not a diode but more likely a voltage dropping resistor.

judging from the picture, it does appear to be a glass encased diode (as opposed to a plastic cased, which are more common these days).

as for the type, I cant help ya there. if you had another ignitor you may be able to get more info. but in many cases, these diodes are unmarked. Especially true of the older glass diodes.

A resistor will have at minimum 3 bands of color, if its following the standard color coding. it may have more, but the standards allow for that.
