Each item in Minecraft has a unique ID assigned to it, known as an item ID, this can be used in commands to spawn the item into the game. The item ID for spawner in Minecraft is shown below:
When Minecraft updated to version 1.13, a changed dubbed "The Flattening" was introduced. In "The Flattening", numerical IDs and item data was removed, and some item IDs were changed to make them more logical - Spawner was one of the many items that had their IDs changed.
For this reason, if you're playing on a Minecraft version below 1.13 (1.12, 1.8, 1.7), you should use what we've named a legacy ID for this item. The legacy ID for spawner is:
Spawner has a data value of 0. You will need to add this to commands, along with its legacy item ID (below), to spawn it.
Items from earlier versions of Minecraft were assigned a numerical ID - a unique number to represent it.
The numerical ID for Spawner is:
The Spawner item can be spawned in Minecraft with the below command. Cheats must be enabled before this will work.
Below is a table of the tools that can be used to break Spawner blocks, and the speed it will take to break at (in seconds). This is calculated with the formula (1.5 * Block Hardness) / Tool Multiplier.
Mob spawners, or monster spawners, are blocks that spawn mobs when placed. Conditions (e.g. light levels) relative to the mob type of the spawner must still be met in order for the monster to spawn. They are often used in grinders, and can be found in dungeons but cannot be mined in Vanilla Minecraft.
