The repair was fairly straight forward.Step 1: Remove the storage drawer from below the oven and disconnect A/C power.Step 2: Using nutdriver, remove the 2 machine screws in the front and 2 on the sides that hold the silver cover plate under the oven.Step 3: Disconnect the 2 wires going to the igniter and remove the 2 bolts holding the igniter to the burner assembly.Step 4: After removing the defective igniter, cut the connectors off the old igniter.Step 5: Strip the wire on the connectors back the appropriate length and connect them to the new igniter with the supplied ceramic wire nuts.Step 6: Reinstall new igniter into the buner assembly and reconnect wires.Step 7: Before reinstalling the cover plate, plug A/C power back in and test that the igniter glows orange and the main gas valve opens.Step 8: Assuming your test light worked, reinstall cover plate using 4 screws and put the storage drawer back in place.
