1.) Trun Off Power
2.) Remove the Storage Drawer and the two (2) screws holding on the (Ignitor Plug) access cover-plate located in the back of the storage drawer access. (see page 15 if same model)
3.) Dissconnect the Ignitor Plug
4.) From the oven opening remove the three screws holding the Ignitor Holder.
5.) Remove the Ignitor and Holder from the oven by gently guiding the wires through the access hole
6.) Pull the Ignitor from the holder
7.) All Ignitors are extremelt fragile; install the new Ignitor into the Holder and make certain it is installed tight, mine was not. (Slight bending with my thumbs on the 1/4" flanges might hold it tighter if it is lose.)
8.)Reverse the process.
Note: One person here said they removed "ALL" the screws, maybe it was a different model, I only had to remove a total of "5" screws, two at the access cover plate and three at the Ignitor holder.
First time took me 20 minutes, if I needed to do it today, maybe 10.
Please also note that I didn't troubleshoot the Ignitor, as I didn't have a wrap-around amp meter, but the typical problem here would be the Ignitor, not the Gas Valve. Good Luck, pt
