The (relatively new) gas oven would not light...oddly enough after a power outage. The recommended typical troubleshooting experience was that if the oven will not light: replace the igniter, even if it appears to be working fine.

I had already removed the 2 plates in the bottom of the oven to take an initial look. After not finding anything obvious, and searching on line for advice, I ordered the igniter. After the igniter arrived it was a matter of removing 2 screws, pulling out the lower drawer to gain access to the igniter disconnect, and done.

thanks for getting the correct part to me so quickly. Also the diagram and part number search was right on the money!
