I had changed the broiler igniter several years ago, but it had "burned out". The only thing that slowed me down on this repair was that the igniter was glowing brightly, but the oven would still not ignite. Others have written that it's best to try a new igniter FIRST. That indeed was the solution.

One "trick" that I did not find in other posts was how to get to the plug on the end of the igniter - so here's how.

First, open the oven, remove all racks and the bottom cover. Remove the nut holding the heat deflector in place and remove the heat deflector. Then remove the three screws holding the igniter in place.

Second, pull out the bottom drawer of the ove and remove it. At the very back there is a sheet metal cover held in place by two additional screws; remove them to rermove the sheet metal cover - this will allow access to the plug on the other end of the igniter. Unplug the igniter.

Third, feed the plug end of the new igniter from inside of the oven to the underside. Plug it in, reattach the sheet metal cover, reinstall the drawer, screw in the new igniter and put the heat deflector back in place.

Note of caution: be careful handling the igniter - it's fragile and easily broken.
