Removed oven racks, oven floor tray and shield to access burner. Initially began to replace only electric igniter (just two screws) and burner break valve but noticed burner tube was corroded and had large hole near igniter. Ordered a new burner pipe. Hardest part of this repair was the burner valve. It has a compression fitting to the aluminum supply tube that needs to be seated well without bending the tube. The electrical connectors (2) have plastic shields on them that are somewhat brittle, perhaps because the oven is about ten years old. Had to be very gentle with them when swapping them from old valve to new so as not to crack the plastic.
The real trick was figuring out that the valve break needed to be adjusted for LP supply. It shipped configured for natural gas. Upon initial install the flame level in the oven was much to high. After asking around I discovered that the brass nozzle needs to be tightened down clockwise with a wrench until flush with the base in order to set it for LP.
